Mayan Calendar: December 21 2012 Won’t Be the End of the World

Another reason to be optimistic about 2012…..

Just in case you were one of those people getting a little worried….

From the Daily Mail:

Many consider it a joke although others are scared we might never live to see next year thanks to the Mayan calendar’s ‘apocalyptic’ prediction.

But Mayan expert Leonzo Barreno, of Saskatchewan, Canada, says the ‘apocalypse’ concept is a false interpretation of the Long Count calendar.

The University of Regina journalism professor said Mayan elders taught him that December 21 this year simply marks the start of a new calendar.

….

‘For them it’s a joyous event, not an apocalyptic event. What is coming is the end of a calendar and the beginning of a new one.

‘It’s cyclical,’ he told CBC. ‘This has happened before. According to the elders it’s the fifth time it’s happened.’

    I was looking forward to playing R.E.M.’s song with the lyrics: “it’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine!” ..but now it looks like Mayan prediction won’t happen. I’m disappointed. (ironically R.E.M. ended before the Mayan prediction…hmmm)

    Well, John Lennon died not long before Dec 21st, so lets Imagine…. a world without Wall Street, Politicians, Corporations, Banks, Religion, Hatred, Wars, or Music as an Industry.
