They believe the new age will start around A.D. 2012 and will be the Age of Aquarius. This they say will be an age of enlightenment and world unity – a post-Christian world in the fullest sense of the word. Dr Christopher Pepper, Revelation in the Stars
The term ‘new age’ is most closely correlated with the astrological idea that we are about to enter a new age, the Age of Aquarius, which will arrive around 2012. Eugene Gallagher, co-author Introduction to New and Alternative Religions in America: History and Controversies
Their calendar stops dead on a very specific date: December 21st 2012. Mayan year Zero. Surely it’s just a story? Samuel L Jackson, Curiosity: How Will The World End? Discovery 2011
What scientists are looking out for are the five cataclysmic events most likely to devastate our world: an ark storm, an asteroid impact, a mega-quake, a mega-tsunami and a super-volcano. ibid.
Those people who believe themselves to be the rightful rulers of this global fiefdom absolutely believe themselves to be the descendants of the Watchers, and therefore they are the rightful rulers, in their minds, of this planetary fiefdom. But their sentence is up in the Year of Mystery ... I believe that these guys have known that the Year of Mystery is 2012 ... 2012 has only been in the popular awareness since 1987 with the publication of Jose Arguelles’ book The Mayan Factor ... the end of the 5125-year Mayan long-count, which of course comes to an end at 11:11 ... 21st December 2012. Ian R Crane, lecture Liverpool 2008, ‘New World Order’
To render December 21 2012 as a doomsday event or moment of cosmic shifting is a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in. Sandra Noble, Foundation for Advancement of Meso-American Studies
We should be very wary of what will happen in 2012. The calendar runs for over 5,000 years and then abruptly stops on December 21st 2012. Robert Bast, 2012 website founder
What we know from the past is that there is an eleven year solar cycle, and we’ll be coming to the peak of that solar cycle in 2012. Dave Sibeck, NASA physicist
We can’t predict even a month in advance what’s going to happen or even a week, so it’s impossible to say what will happen on a specific date in the future. David Sibeck, NASA astrophysicist
A worst case scenario is that we have a few problems with our satellites. Hugh Ross, astronomer, Reason to Believe
We only have three surviving Maya codices ... However, the last part of the Dresden Codex contains a prophetic chapter – this chapter is a warning chapter for the end of the world. Professor Nikolai Grube, ethnologist
The Mayan priesthood prophesised that planet Earth would come to an end on 13 baktun on their long-count calendar. This date translates as the 21st December 2012. The date is unlikely to be arbitrary. Rather, the cosmologists probably and purposely calculated it using their advanced knowledge of astronomy ... The Maya attached such importance to this rare alignment [of planets] that it formed not only the lynchpin of the date of the annihilation of mankind but it also permeated the very roots of the culture. Decoding the Past s2e23: Mayan Doomsday Prophecy, History 2006
Some people believe on December 21st 2012 the world as we know it will come to an end. Others believe a yet unknown planet will bring forth doomsday. Decoding the Past s3e5: Doomsday 2012: The End of Days, History 2007
In the Dresden Codex what you have is a series of astronomical events that are predicted: it has the Venus cycles, it has lunar cycles, it has eclipse cycles, and then the last page of the Dresden Codex actually shows the destruction of the world via water. And so the Maya conceived of a doomsday scenario. Professor Arlen F Chase, anthropologist University Central Florida
Yet 2012 does not mark the end of the world as often predicted but the birth of a new Golden Era popularly known as the Age of Aquarius. Michael P Mau, The Sanctus Germanus Prophecies: The Events Leading Up To Year 201
The Bottom Line is the global New Age Movement will attempt to initiate its Luciferian Anti-Christ agenda in 2012. Labyrinth of Truth, 2000
We have no record or knowledge that [the Maya] would think the world would come to an end in 2012. Susan Milbrath, Curator of Latin American Art and Archaeology
It’s a date that’s become synonymous with the end: the 21st of December 2012. Why do so many people believe that on that day the world will experience an unprecedented cataclysm? 2012 followers point to unusual correlations across various diverse cultures, many of which seem to predict that will be the year when mankind will meet its demise. Nostradamus Effect s1e3: Extinction 2001, History 2009
Ancient cultures such as the Maya and the Hopi, the Hindu and the Chinese, modern science, computer experts, and the 16th century seer Nostradamus all hint at a doomsday scenario convergence in 2012. ibid.
The most significant of the Mayan calendars was the Long Count. This tracks a 5125-year era beginning on the 11th August 3114 B.C. and ending on the 21st December 2012. Did the Mayans intend this date to represent the end of time? Or is the final date of their calendar simply indicating that it has to be set to a new cycle, a new Long Count? ibid.
An American shaman embarked on a different type of cosmic journey in the 1970s. This counter-culture hero was searching for answers to the human condition. His name was Terence McKenna. And he combined complex mathematics, Chinese philosophy and psychedelic drugs into a controversial form of prophecy. His quest eventually led him to conclude that just as the Mayans predicted over a thousand years earlier, man’s end was destined for 2012 ... Use of these recreational drugs led to Terence McKenna’s ground-breaking work: Time-Wave Theory. ibid.
It will be very very hard to survive this. Patrick Geryl, author How to Survive 2012
Our civilisation will be destroyed in 2012. Nothing can stop it. A very high sunspot is expected in 2012 ... This is total Armageddon. Patrick Geryl, The Orion Prophecy & How To Survive 2012
We are reaching a confluence of tipping-points in fundamental systems – there’s tipping points in the energy system, there’s tipping points in the climate systems of the planet ... financial system, food production, water issues. John Peterson, author Vision for 2012
Drawings in the recently discovered Lost Book of Nostradamus may contain coded clues as to what could happen in 2012. Like the prophecies in his four-line verses or quatrains, the drawings are dire warnings. Nostradamus 2012, 2009
In 2012 from the Earth’s perspective the sun will align with the centre of the Milky Way galaxy in an incredibly rare astronomical phenomenon that occurs only once every twenty-six thousand years. ibid.
According to an array of ancient cultures this alignment signifies a time of traumatic change. ibid.
In 1994 three Israeli mathematicians discovered number patterns that American author Michael Drosnin uses to pinpoint what he believes is a direct Biblical reference to the end date of the Mayan calendar in 2012. ibid.
I think the cataclysm is coming straight at us; I think there’s nothing we can do about it ... We are in very serious trouble. Jay Weidner, author Filmmaker: Timewave 2012
Every 26,000 years our solar system passes through the twelve zodiac signs. Ancient civilisations such as the Hopi, Egyptians, Cherokee, Apache, and Mayans were aware of this great cycle and developed calendars according to it. Esoteric Agenda, 2008
It is now clear after almost a century of disagreement among Maya specialists that the Creation of the current sun – the start-point of the 13-baktun cycle – equates to 11th August 3114 B.C., and will be replaced by the next Creation on 21st December 2012. Geoff Stray, Beyond 2012
