mark van StoneIT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD: WHAT THE ANCIENT MAYA REALLY WARNED US ABOUT 2012
Mark van Stone - Southwestern College

Thanks to the internet and cable television, people have now heard more about the “Maya Prophecies” for 2012 than about any other aspect of their amazing culture.  Guatemala, Belize, and Yucatan are suddenly the most-desirable destinations on the travel map this year.  Americans are flocking to Chichen Itza, Palenque, Tikal, and Cahal Pech in record numbers, seeking… what?  Exotic mystery?  A glimpse of a galactic visitation?   Enlightenment? Their
calendar-“ending” actually does loom this December.  But what did the Maya actually predict on that fateful day? This lecture will guide you through the science and the ancient inscriptions, which inform us about the Maya ideas about the future, their calendar mythology, and our prospects for survival beyond 2012.
