Mayan prophecy: The world won’t end, as a newfound calendar goes on and on and on

• Washington Post

In a striking find, archaeologists in Guatemala report the discovery of a small building whose walls display not only a stunningly preserved mural of a brightly adorned Mayan king, but also calendars that destroy any notion that the Mayans predicted the end of the world in 2012.

These deep-time calendars can be used to count thousands of years into the past and future, countering pop-culture and New Age ideas that Mayan calendars ended on Dec. 21, 2012,

Two points.

"The world won’t end, as a newfound calendar goes on and on and on." This statement has no significance whatsoever. Why? Because the only worry that we all have is for our own life. We don't really care about the end of the world, since for each one of us, it ends on our dying day.

Get into the book of Daniel in the Bible. Read the prediction in the first 2 or 3 chapters in the dream of Nebuchadnezzar of ancient Babylon. The world is at the tips of the toes of the statue in the dream. Never has there ever been in history, a time of worldwide communication and transportation as there is today, along with the size of the population. And racism is rampant, worldwide, more than ever before. Read Daniel. He predicts cataclysmic change, any time now. We are at the tips of the toes. There is no more.
