2012 According to the Ancient Mayans
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

In just two days, the calendar will jump to the year 2012. And while some people plan their year festivities, others worry of doomsday scenarios and point at the Mayan calendar’s ancient prophecies on the end of the world. Independent Producer Maria Martin reports from Guatemala, the land of the Maya, to see what people are saying about 2012.

Not me. Why would you care what people beielve? All that matters is what can be proven. Scientists know it is a bunch of garbage, totally devoid of any scientific validity, and dreamed up by hoaxers and flakes without even a rudimentary knowledge of science. The people making these claims have their degrees in Art and Literature (those who even have degrees). One of the main offenders is a woman who thinks she is getting mental messages from aliens from Zeta Reticuli. She claims the Zetas gave her a sign to move to another state because she asked for a sign and then found an unwrapped Starburst candy in a package of them (candies, not aliens). She first predicted that Zecharia Sitchen’s imaginary planet was going to return in 2003. Undaunted when it failed to show, she simply changed the date to 2012 to agree with Jose Arguelles’ misinterpretation of the Mayan calendar. Should you listen to her or to scientists? Hmmm tough decision …..scientists….wackos….scientists
