The Long Count

In the coming months and years leading up to 2012, there will be increased volcanic and seismic activity as well as solar wind and weather-related effects on the earth. If the Meso-American calendar is right and the enormous cycle of the turning galaxy is complete on December 21 of that year. As the date approaches more and more charlatans and con men will interpret the legends and find a way to profit from prophecy. Doomsayers are already calling this "the end of history" or "the end of time." Evidence suggests the same culture that predicted the cycle, also predicted events far beyond 2012, strongly suggesting that one cannot claim the accuracy of a doomsday based on a calendar whose high priests named events beyond that date. The excitement of an immense and world changing possible future appeals to me more than the fear of its end.

I think you and I have a similar outlook in re the Mayan Long Count.

I am, nevertheless, using the Long Count as a countdown, not because I think the winter solstice of 2012 is any kind of doomsday, but because it is a convenient date by which certain matters concerning the future will become clear. I mean nothing supernatural, just which way things are trending.
