DAY AFTER FEELS LIKE DOOMSDAY
I watched a really cool program on The History Channel last night. It was on the Mayan Calender which was not just a device to mark time and days off but foretold of events and was chock full of predictions. They were beyond their years in the way they designed this Calender and their Astronomical knowledge was well beyond, questionably beyond their capabilities.
Within the structure of this calender, lie three calenders that worked in conjunction with one another. They were of the belief that history repeats itself and their predictions were actually broad but accurate to the point of a prediction of their own demise.
It astounded me that they prayed to and had a belief of a God, a deity which was nothing like their own person, dark haired and dark skinned. But they made images of their God within their hieroglyphics and it is written that he was a god with white hair, who was fair skinned and blue eyes. They had an advanced hieroglyphic means of record but when they were invaded by the Spanish Conquest, they were deemed, because of their rituals of human sacrifice and such, as demon possessed. Their records were burned except for...4 books. Within those four books lie a legend of prophesy unlike any other. It predicted that the Sun will dip within the Milky Way, thus causing cataclysmic proponents. It is considered Doomsday but it is not actually the end but ushers in the Golden Age.
The date given and mind you, their other predictions were pretty on the money is...
