Despite the internet rumors, psychic predictions, and the belief of many who follow the Mayan calendar, a Mayan elder insists that the world will not end in 2012.
The Mayan calendar runs out on December 21, of 2012, which has made many believe that will spell the end of the current cycle of the world. However, Mayan elder, Apolinario Chile Pixtun says the doomsday theories spring from Western, not Mayan ideas.
But hysteria surrounding 2012 does have some grains of archaeological basis. One of them is Monument Six.
Found at an obscure ruin in southern Mexico during highway construction in the 1960s, the stone tablet almost did not survive; the site was largely paved over and parts of the tablet were looted.
The inscription describes something that is supposed to occur in 2012 involving Bolon Yokte, a mysterious Mayan god associated with both war and creation. However, erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible.
Guillermo Bernal, an archaeologist at Mexico’s National Autonomous University, believes the eroded message is: “He will descend from the sky”.
