PROPHECY DEMYSTIFIED: THE NON-EXISTENT “Mayan Prophecies” and the Real Meaning of Prophecy
Prophetic Voices or Sensationalistic Screams?
The word prophecy and prophet have been grossly corrupted by the mainstream press and by the works of popularizing shenanigans ie., book, movie and video sellers who have no respect for academic accuracy or integrity.
I have been immersed in Maya studies over the last 22 years and I have yet to come across a single “Mayan prophecy” written, painted, inscribed or engraved anywhere. The Maya left no record of “prophetic worldly events” concerning Dec. 21, 2012.
John Major Jenkins, likely the most informed and highly acclaimed of all the 2012 Neo-Maya Scholars on the archeological record of Dec, 21, 2012, will confirm that the Maya had nothing more to say about what would transpire on or about Dec. 21, 2012 other than their own mytho-symbolic description of an astronomical conjunction between our sun and the center of our galaxy.
Jenkins does use the term “world renewal” when interpreting some of the imagery, but the phrase needs to be understood within the context of Maya mythical lore and symbolism.
Jenkins’ interpretation of the archeological records maintains that the astronomical events of 2012 were represented by the ancient Maya as the “birth of a new world age”.
The “birth of a new world age” means the beginning of a new cycle of time. What else is to be implied by those 6 words? The ancient Maya made no other record of specific or general earthly events (prophecies) which we could expect to coincide with the Dec, 21, 2012 solstice alignment. 
The archeological record regarding 2012 points only to an astronomical event—end of story. At least end of story for the ancient Maya who had no clue the commotion so many people would make over their recording of Dec. 21, 2012.
My purpose is not to discuss the validity or accuracy of those considered “prophets” and their “prophecies” unless they pertain to the Dec. 21, 2012 phenomenon.
I am happy and relieved to announce that the Maya responsible for the notation of Dec. 21, 2012, left not a single stitch of information which could be construed as “prophetic” unless one wants to say that the Maya notation of the 2012 date and their corresponding rendition of the astronomical event is a prophecy.
If one wishes extend such a definition then we are all prophets.
Anyone can predict the sunrise and the sunset. Anyone can predict the changing of the seasons. But who can predict any one of countless occurrences which take place on any given day. Welcome to prophecy 101.
When you come across a site or someone talking about “Mayan prophecies” ask them for physical proof of such prophecies. Ask… where are they written down? You will stop the conversation in its tracks.
There are numerous books and articles titled “the Mayan Prophecies”, yet there is not a shred of evidence to substantiate a single “Mayan prophecy”. How do like them apples? But that does not mean that there are no prophecies associated with the 2012 Mayan Calendar phenomena (2012-MC). To my knowledge there are only 2 verifiable prophecies regarding 2012 and they both have already come true.
One was completely fulfilled in 1987 and the other is in the process of being fulfilled. Those 2 prophecies have yet to be addressed in any 2012-MC book. But they are discussed in my recently released book. The Legend of 2012: Part 1 The Legend is Alive and Well! ~ A True Story. Click on the link to learn more.
