#161 / Turning The Calendar Page

I have been interested in the Mayan Calendar and its possible prediction of the "end of the world" for some time. Click here, or on the image, for another person's ruminations on this topic.

According to what I read in the Honolulu Star Advertiser, new archeological discoveries indicate that the Mayan Calendar doesn't really "end" on December 21, 2012 after all.

Whew! That's a relief!!

Nonetheless, whatever the Mayan Calendar may say (or not), I don't think that we human beings and our civilization are actually "off the hook." There is still a lot to worry about, when we consider how far we are pushing the natural world, upon which we and our civilization do, ultimately, depend.

  1. Nope, the Mayan calendar didn't end. It just ran out of room!

    A new excavation revealed a Mayan "calculating" room, where Mayan calendar makers worked out the calendar up to the next 40,000 years.

    By then we'll have figured it all out... or not.


Thanks for your comment!
