By now, everyone has heard that according to New Age practitioners, authors and self-proclaimed experts, that the end of the Mayan calendar on Dec. 21, 2012 indicates the end of the world — and unfortunately, there are a growing number of people who are actually believing these claims, with some preparing for the worst.
In order to discover the truth and dispel the falsehoods about the Mayan calendar and what Rob McConnell, host of the internationally syndicated show, “The ‘X’ Zone Radio/TV Show,” went on a two week expedition into the land of The Maya in present day Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador with his wife Laura.
For the past 20 years, McConnell has been at the helm of The ‘X’ Zone Radio/TV Show of which he is the creator, executive producer and host bringing the show from a one station to an internationally syndicated show on the U.S. based TalkStar Radio Network. The ‘X’ Zone is broadcast Monday to Friday from 10 pm - 2 am Eastern, and then the show is repeated from 2 am - 6 am and can be heard on local radio stations or at http://www.talkstarradio.com.
Since 1992, McConnell has interviewed over 3,300 people, from all walks of life including the rich, the famous, the believer and the skeptic. His complete guest list of past guests can be read at http://www.xzoneradiotv.com/
The newspaper that McConnell has been also publishing monthly, for the past 20 years, The ‘X’ Chronicles Newspaper, also chronicles and investigates the Paranormal, Parapsychology and New Age Spirituality and social trends affected by the categories discussed in both The ‘X’ Zone Radio/TV Show and The ‘X’ Chronicles Newspaper.
Over the two weeks of their expedition in the land of the Maya, the McConnell’s had the opportunity of speaking with Mayan government officials, Mayan scholars, Mayan Tourism Guides yes, even the Maya themselves. From investigating the Mayan caves to archaeological sites, no stone was left unturned.
McConnell is happy to report that rumours of the demise of the Maya years ago is false. The Mayans are alive and well. In fact, there are an estimated 2.5 million Mayans living in the land of the Maya today.
It has been discovered through DNA testing that the Maya originated from Mongolia and crossed the Bering Strait ice bridge and continued south to where they settled in Central America.
There are over 100 Mayan cities that have been found in the land of the Maya, but to date, only 10 per cent are presently accessible to the public.
The Mayans are considered to be the leaders and pioneers of great sciences like astronomy and mathematics. One of their great achievements was the understanding of our solar system.
All their architecture is based on astronomic observations and five centuries before Galileo Galilei, they knew that the centre of our solar system was the Sun and not the Earth.
When asked about the end of the Mayan calendar on Dec. 21, 2012 and the New Age prophecies of the end of the world, they simply laugh, for as they told us, Dec. 21, 2012 is the end of the current round calendar and that is all.
The Mayans never predicted that it would also indicate the end of the world and there is no Mayan document or archaeological artifact that makes such a claim or reference.
So, there you have it from the Mayans themselves — the World will NOT end on Dec. 21, 2012.
