Mayan (Meso American) culture dates back about 6000 years. The Mayans were the most advanced culture in the Americas. They lived in Central America. Guatemala was the cultural and commercial center of their empire.
Among other things, the Mayans were Astronomers.
Mayans considered the number 13 to be a sacred number.
About the Mayan Calendar
The Mayan Calender, begins at 3114BC. It ends on December 21, 2012.
The calender is partially built around the sacred number 13. They developed 394 year periods, called "Baktuns". They developed 13 of them. The last Baktun ends on December 21, 2012.
Doomsday theories tied to the end of the calendar were found on stone tablets at Tortuguero, Mexico. They suggest things like a solar shift, movement of the planet Venus, and violent earthquakes.
In an effort to clarify the truth, we conducted extensive research. Our research took us to the heart of the Mayan cultural areas, as well as the most remote areas of the Mayans. We unearthed many stone tablets, previously undiscovered. We then, painstakingly translated the Ancient writings.
Here is what they said:
Stone Tablet # EXC 4117: "Can we stop now? I need an Espresso."
Stone Tablet # FRS8711: " Do you really think this will fool the Gringos in the year 2012 into believing December 21st is the end?"
Stone Tablet #GPP2588: " We've gotta stop here. The Marlin are biting out in the Gulf of Mexico"
Stone Tablet# CRZY9521: " I'm tired of writing fiction. Can we write a true story soon?"
How to Celebrate "The End"
The country of Mexico is planning year long celebration, marking the end of the 13th Baktun. This is expected to be a boon to their travel industry.
