There has been a lot of talk of the Mayan prophesy. All you have to do is Google it and you'll have tons of information. Briefly I will reiterate some of these. They studied the stars and created an amazing calender which comes to full circle on December 21, 2012. During that time the planets will also align.
" The place where the December solstice sun crosses the Milky Way
is precisely the location of the "dark-rift in the Milky Way
...'xibalba be' - the road to the underworld."
On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts
the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane,
while also closely conjuncting the exact the center of the galaxy."
See enclosed link for more details.
(Notice the (Cross)ing point.)
Now if I understand correctly the Mayans believed that when this occurs the "dark-rift" is a doorway that will be opened to the underworld.
In the Revelations
CELESTIAL SIGNS A great earthquake.
The sun turned black.
The moon turned blood-red.
The stars (meteorites) fell.
The sky was rolled back as a scroll.
Earth's population was terrified.
These are literal signs in the physical universe.
1. Isaiah 34:4
All the stars of the heavens will be dissolved and the sky rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
Everyone knows that the moon affects the tides. Nurses will tell you when there is a full moon there is also an increase in births. I think it also affects people and animals to some degree.
Keeping that in mind, do you think that the alignment of the planets will have an affect the earth and its inhabitants.
Sun blast are also predicted around this time.
I'll mention global warming and shifting of the poles and the coincidence of our recent crazy weather, but until I have more data, Ill just "mention it"
