- For the last 4 years, since 13 November 2008, the Grand Maya Itza Council has been visiting sacred sites around the world during every Full Moon in a specific sequence leading up to the 52nd and final sacred site attunement for Vijayanagar, India this evening, 28 December 2012.
The exact moment of Full Moon will occur earlier in the day, at 10:21 GMT/UTC.

- What you are about to read side-steps the woo-woo surrounding a single date of December 21st 2012 in which many believed dramatic events would occur and half the world would be swept away.
The Mayan calendar identifies the beginning and end of long-term and shorter-term cycles. There is no understanding of a moment in time - as in a single day such as Dec. 21st 2012. The 'transition' from one state of being to another "does not" fit the mechanics like flipping on a switch. It is a gradual process of which scientific agencies such as NASA and ESA identify the galactic alignment factually occurred in 2009. However, other researchers believe the 'transition' period of this cycle (5th World or 5th Sun) began in 1980 and has an approximate 36 year precession.

- We survived! The ancient Mayan cycle known as the Long Count ends today and the deadline passed for 'end of the world' without raining fire or killer earthquakes.
Celebrations took place in Mexico, Guatamala, Peru, on Mount Fuji, Japan, at Stonehenge in the UK and in many other locations around the world.

- The Mayan Calendar is expiring because there are no more time-keepers. The next cycle of years and eons became impossible to calculate when the ancient guild of stargazers was abolished by the Spanish conquistadores. Cultural assault, not a looming apocalypse, is the reason for the loss of the Mayan system of tracking time.
The destruction of Mayan astronomy and mathematics is one of the greatest cultural crimes against our world heritage and sadly the so-called Mayan Doomsday only reflects and perpetrates the Western misunderstanding of a grand scientific tradition.

- Maya priests started off ceremonies aimed at marking the end of the current era in the Maya long-count calendar last week, with dancing, incense and rituals designed to thank the gods.
The Mayas performed the "New Fire" ceremony at a park in Mexico City, but complained they have been barred by authorities from performing rituals at their ancestral temples in the Maya region.

- December 21, 2012 is not the end of the world, but the end of a particular cycle in the Mayan calendar. The next similar marker of time in regard to the end of a cycle in the Mayan Calendar is October 13, 4772, nearly 4,000 years from now.
But December 21, 2012 IS a turning point, just like the date October 13, 4772 will be for those incarnated on earth at that time.
December 21, 2012 holds great significance for us because we have created a mesmerizing zeitgeist around it. It has become a part of our collective consciousness in a way that can't be ignored. It is loaded with meaning: with fear, with hope, with ridicule, and especially with confusion.

- Few know what the Mayan priests actually said about 2012. In reality, Mayan elders say something very different from what you might have heard.
For example, Wakatel Utiw says that the end of the Maya calendar has nothing to do with the end of the world.
He also explains that December 21, 2012 might not even be the end of this cycle of the calendar.
The Mayan elders do make prophetic warnings, but they have nothing to do with 2012. Specifically, they warn that we need to rein in war and pollution, or we will destroy ourselves.

- The Mayan Long Count End Date (188.8.131.52.0 in the Long Count) represents the rare alignment of the Winter Solstice Sun crossing through the Galactic Equator along the dark band of stars at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, and the Ecliptic (the path of the Sun) that will occur exactly 11:11 AM Greenwich Mean Time.
According to the Mayan Elders, during the period of 4-Ahau k’atun (1993 – 2012), resources will be scarce, natural disasters will increase, and the people will be troubled and anxious about what the future may bring. They described it as a time of great difficulty resulting in mankind’s disharmony of spirit:
"There will be scarcities of corn and squash during this k’atun and this will lead to a great mortality. It is the k’atun of remembering and recording knowledge."

- Guatemala's Mayan people accused the government and tour groups on Wednesday of perpetuating the myth that their calendar foresees the imminent end of the world for monetary gain.
"We are speaking out against deceit, lies and twisting of the truth, and turning us into folklore-for-profit. They are not telling the truth about time cycles," charged Felipe Gomez, leader of the Maya alliance Oxlaljuj Ajpop.
Maya leader Gomez urged the Tourism Institute to rethink the doomsday celebration, which he criticized as a "show" that was disrespectful to Mayan culture. Experts say that for the Maya, all that ends in 2012 is one of their calendar cycles, not the world.

- It won’t be long now. Just over 90 days until the end of the Mayan calendar arrives. Normally such well publicized “apocalyptic” dates come and go without much serious notice from me.
It’s different this time...

- Nibiru, sometimes called Planet X, is not going to collide with our planet this year – or ever – because it almost certainly doesn’t exist.
Nibiru may be just a fictitious planet in the hyped-up 2012 doomsday scare, and not real... This putative world has made a big splash in the human imagination and cyberspace, but there doesn't seem to be the slightest trace of a ripple of it upon our solar system and planet Earth.
