A friend of mine has written a book on the Mayan civilization.
Here's her press release:
For Release November, 2012 From: Lia Machel, Authormacheldesigns@aol.com
Maya Calendar Truth Revealed
It is astonishing how readily so many people worldwide are embracing
the date on a Calendar to tell them that the world is coming to an
end. It is reminiscent of the run up to the Millennium 2000 and the
What is it about human nature that feeds on apocalyptic prophecies
that bear no comparison to a religious belief, one that details the
events and the purposes in bringing them to fruition? What Higher
Power is involved or even included in the current calculations for
a hell on earth?
What does anyone really know about the Maya, their culture and
history, as the end of their Calendar approaches? Are they even a
Now we also hear about the prophetic end that includes the Hindu,
the Chinese, the American Indian Hopi tribal elders and their own
They might also be interested in adding the Babylonian and Chaldean
Cal-endars to the mix.
So why would all these Calendars and prophecies be signaling the same
End of Time? Why would prophecies, from long dead savants and modern
spiritualists, be given us to underscore the “truth” of an approaching
Someone needs to call a time out. If there is to be such keen focus
on a Maya inspired epiphany, one should know more about this enigmatic
and vanished culture and civilization.
In recent history, a new breed of archaeologists, ethnographers, famed
explorers, and researchers, have uncovered many answers to the once
unknown peoples of Mesoamerica. These answers are often in direct
con-flict with old established theories and declarations by lettered
professors who have refused to acknowledge the breakthroughs made, or
who have even sought to discourage scientific inquiry. Some are even
now buying into the current creation of half-truths and publishing
Lia Machel, author of the new Guidebook titled TIME PORTAL: The World
of the First Maya, has researched and compiled discoveries and
findings by the new generation of scientists and anthropologists, to
bring truths to light that will astonish the reader and student.
The Maya were once a people of the Canaanite tribes, descended from
peoples dispersed and scattered at the Tower of Babel, throughout
the world, as commanded by the Lord High God. Peoples from Africa,
China, Japan and ancient Syria, Carthage, were among the first to
occupy what would become the Maya Lands, in regions covering
Mexico, the Yucatan, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Then came the Cambodians, the east Indians, the Hebrews, peoples
from Polynesian islands.
There are records of all these traders and settlers in what was a
network of international trade, starting in 1000 B.C. Great ships
brought them there.
The famous Calendar has been traced all the way back to the Chaldeans,
thence to Babylon. It was given to the Olmec and Maya peoples by the

Chinese! In Chapter Two of her book, As Above, So Below, the author
cites the change made to the Maya form of calculation (and using the
zero) that is based on a number 13 instead of 12 in other
calendars. It begins on the Maya Day of Creation, August 14, 3114
B.C….before there were Maya.
The Han Chinese and Babylonian Calendars are greatly similar, with
time- lines corresponding to 1400-1000 B.C.
It should surprise no one who accepts this fact that all of the
alleged prophecies of the end time dates would be recorded by the
calendars of all those who became the Maya peoples, or who traded with
Another fact: The Maya Dresden Codices feature a calendar order based
on a complex system of 20 intermeshing rounds. The most important of
these are the Venus Tables*, not the Moon Tables that are being used
to signal the end of the world. The Calendar does not end, but
computes to be the end of an era. The next cycle completes on Oct. 15,

Calendar. * Prof. Gerardo Aldemay, UC Santa Barbara, recognized this
error of calculation based on the Moon Calendar. His report, Timeline
error in Maya Calendar deduction, with Gregorian Calendar: Oct. 7,
2010. It is the Venus timeline that is most accurate for
synchronization between the Maya and Western Calendar dating. That
date is perhaps 50-100 years from now!
If the end of the world was coming, why did the Maya astronomers
compute in great numbers of years, like the pictun: 160,000
years…all the way up to the alautun: 64,000,000 years?
Further, the Maya gave no details of what would happen at such a
juncture of descent into chaos. They simply called our Fourth World
Age The Age of Strife, when all the elements of earth would be quite
For those who want to enter the time portal to the world the Maya
peoples created, and how they lived, read the entire Guidebook,
illustrated by the author, and featuring important photos and figures
to show the historic connections to peoples of the world, who came to
be the Maya.
