Mayans protest government sponsored apocalypse party and slam “doomsday myth”

The world will not end. It will be transformed. -- Mayan elders.

For years the Mayans have been fighting against the doomsday myth surrounding the incorrect reading of their ancient calendar. As the date of December 21, 2012 approaches the hype has caused an increasing amount of distress for the indigenous Mayan people, especially with their homeland in Guatemala being turned into a cheap tourist attraction for the coming “apocalypse”.

Just this week, Guatemala’s Mayan people accused the government and state sponsored tour groups of perpetuating the myth that their calendar predicts the end of the world, so they can benefit financially from tourist revenue.

The Culture Ministry of Guatemala is hosting a massive event in Guatemala City, which as many as 90,000 people are expected to attend, all being promoted under the pretext of a “doomsday” celebration.

Felipe Gomez, leader of the Maya alliance Oxlaljuj Ajpop protested this week with other Mayans, urging the Tourism Institute to rethink the doomsday celebration, which he criticized as a “show” that was disrespectful to Mayan culture.


“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” Gomez told the AFP news agency.

In a statement released by Oxlaljuj Ajpop, the end of the Mayan calendar simply means that “there will be big changes on the personal, family and community level, so that there is harmony and balance between mankind and nature.”

Last year, a Mayan elder named Carlos Barrios interviewed over 600 other senior Mayan elders to get the clearest possible understanding of the situation. In an online interview representing the Organization for Mayan and Indigenous Spiritual Studies, Carlos made the following statement:

“Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It’s just their imagination. Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed. We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth Changes. Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human.”

As the Mayans believe, and as many modern researchers also believe, the human species has already went through many different changes during their history on the planet earth. Those changes have many times been difficult, but have also been followed by rapid leaps in understanding, compassion and social advancement.

As I discussed in my book Alchemy of the Modern Renaissance “The doomsday theory is unlikely and overused by power hungry governments that wish to keep their populations in fear. As we have seen quite recently in the past decade in the United States, the establishment constantly uses fear to manipulate the minds of US citizens. This technique is not new either, it has been used for centuries whether it be the fear of economic collapse, natural disaster, the enemy, or the fear of god, fear has been used by the few to dominate the many for ages.

When the Spaniards were conquering the Mayan empire they learned through missionaries that 1698 was the end of the Mayan time cycle. So the Spanish waited until 1698 to invade and the Mayans took it as a sign and fled without resistance. One of the most celebrated of all doomsday predictions was made by astrologers who predicted a great flood that would end the world on February 20 1524 based on the conjunction of all the planets in the heavens mercury, Venus, Mars Jupiter and Saturn. We have also seen quite recently with the media hoax Y2K, which threatened us with a “cyber Armageddon” at the turn of the millennium. In both cases obviously, the world continued to turn. “

The end of the world has been predicted many times and has yet to come, the last time that this kind of hysteria swept the world was just over a decade ago, around the change of the millennium with the y2k scare. The world didn’t end last time, and it is not going to end next time. However, there may be some truth that we are on the verge of some sort of societal transition, looking around the world all of the signs are certainly there.

Oxlajuj Ajpop is holding events it considers sacred in five cities to mark the event and Gomez said the Culture Ministry would be wise to throw its support behind their real celebrations. However, there it is not likely that the government tourist agency and the ministry will change their course.

"When the Spaniards were conquering the Mayan empire they learned through missionaries that 1698 was the end of the Mayan time cycle. So the Spanish waited until 1698 to invade and the Mayans took it as a sign and fled without resistance." Excellent point!

Been saying this for years... The powers that be will use ancient religious artifacts and stories/legends as a PLAYBOOK for creating "events" to mimic old prophesies and thereby control the masses (sheep).

A certain 'Middle-East' country has created missiles/bombs to mimic "hell-fire and brimstone"... I kid you not!

Is it the end of the world, an alien invasion, or a global elite with trillions of dollars worth of secret technology at their disposal???

The Mayan calendar connects to a glyph located in the Washington D.C capitol dome
http://www.aoc.gov/capitol-hill/frieze-american-history/cortez-and-montezuma-mexican-temple

The glyph is played like a game card or like Tarot card to explain what is about to play out on the Freemasons chessboard.
The Mayan calendar the symbol used to make this connection.

The glyph shows the Spanish conquistadors led by the priests of the HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE meeting with Mayan leaders.
What is important is what happens at this time slot.

THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE PROCEEDS TO LOOT THE GOLD, KILL THE MAYANS, TAKE OVER THE LAND.

WHAT WE SEE HAPPENING TODAY IS THE THEFT OF AMERICAS WEALTH, THE KILLING OF IT'S PEOPLE WITH GMO FOODS, AND THE TAKING OF OUR HOMES AND LANDS...... again by THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE.

JESUITS PLEDGE IS TO DELIVER ALL WEALTH AND LAND TO THE POPE.

"I furthermore promise and declare that I will,when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war,secret or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I. will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus."

I don't disagree with what you say except to point out that...many learned who have studied history would say that the world has ended before in the sense I think we are referring....more than once...so your argument that we have not seen it happen in real time does not seem to mean much.....

Interesting. So, the History Channel and other outlets that frequently discussed December 21, 2012 was quite successful in inflating the smallest group of '2012ers' when I researched into the topic and various outlets of the topic itself.

"The world will not end. It will be transformed."

Off top of my head, the three main groups were:
New World Order 2012ers: They see the transition into Aquarius as the occultic symbolism of the deadline to install the New World Order.
The end of the world as we know it: should be self-explanatory. If it's not, it simply means the world we know is changed with a diverse set of changes.
The third is the Enlightenment: In simple terms, greater conscious and enlightenment.

Inevitably, the world isn't going to simply end or cease to exist or be effectively rendered lifeless.

The trouble with trying to anticipate what is in store is the level of wild speculation. I thought the greatest immediate threat is the Iran war. Then Hurricane Sandy comes along, just after I heard someone mention recent major activity from the New Madrid fault (this is someone local to the area). Not to mention Yellowstone or the Eastern faultlines etc.
But then there is this New World Order, which to me means facist takeover. I can't see how they'll succeed at that one unless they do indeed manage to kill most of us, by whatever method.
Its all heavy going, but the speculation makes it such a headache to try and wrap the mind around.

why don't you try showing a picture of the Mayan tablets, instead of the Aztec sun wheel then I might actually bother to read what you have rote.

Ooops- only you so far noticed... but as long as you're being specific on accuracy and detail- then the correct spelling is "wrote" and not "rote", and in fact the word is incorrect- it should be "written" instead of "wrote".

Just saying- if you want to be such a stickler for details of peripheral importance, you must expect to get called for it yourself.
