PRLog - Nov. 8, 2009 - The hotly anticipated disaster movie 2012 is scheduled for worldwide theatrical release on November 13. Directed by Roland Emmerich and distributed by Columbia Pictures, the film is already controversial. NASA's senior scientist for its Astrobiology Institute, David Morrison in a Skeptic Magazine article responded angrily last week to the film's viral marketing campaign, saying it exploits people's fears about the end of the Mayan "long count" calendar, Dec. 21, 2012, as leading to global catastrophe. This comes despite the fact that in 2006, NASA published a report of its own by Mausumi Dikpati of the National Center for Atmospheric Research on what could be the most apocalyptic solar storm since records began approximately four hundred years ago, scheduled to reach solar maximum in the year 2012. At least one modern Mayan elder named Apolinario Chile Pixtun agrees with Morrison's point of view, however, claiming the year 2012 represents “transformation”
Apollyon Rising 2012
But according to internationally celebrated researcher and author of the new book "Apollyon Rising 2012", Thomas Horn, the biggest secrets related to the year 2012 and the so-called 'new order of the ages' have been hidden in plain sight for over two-hundred years in Washington DC and at the Vatican. That secret has to do with what numerous ancient societies believed about the year 2012--that it forecast when “the gods” would return to earth, heralding the start of a new pagan golden age.
The Maya were not alone among ancient cultures in this knowledge, says Horn. For instance, the Hindu Kali Yuga calendar started approximately during the Mayan Fifth Great Cycle and also predicts global earth changes around the year 2012. The Cherokee Indians likewise viewed the date 2012 as significant. The "Cherokee Rattlesnake Prophecies,"
Much of the published work by Horn in "Apollyon Rising 2012" seems to be unprecedented in the 2012 research community. For instance his claims that the "Vaera" section of the Zohar--a collection of books written in medieval Aramaic over seven hundred years ago--includes "The signs heralding Mashiach," or "The coming of the Messiah" with the fascinating date for "his" appearance set in late 2012.
But of all such disclosures, it is the layout of Washington DC, the "secrets of the Capitol Dome" as Horn calls them, and especially the Great Seal of the United States and its direct connection to the year 2012 that most will find fascinating, as Horn ultimately lays the groundwork for what he calls "the true lost symbol, which Dan Brown completely missed." This symbol is connected to the Capitol Dome as the ancient structural representation of the womb of Isis, and the Washington Monument Obelisk, the ancient representation of the erect male phallus of Osiris. How this is connected to the year 2012 and the return of Osiris/Apollo/
