Matthew - Chapter 24
This is what it will be like when the Son of man comes.Then of two men in the fields, one is taken, one left;of two women grinding at the mill, one is taken, one left.So stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming.

Revelation 20:9
They invaded the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the holy ones and the beloved city. But fire came down from heaven and consumed them.

The 2012 apocalypse

Dexter Rigsby wrote an article last week in the Guardian of June 3 with the headline, "Surviving the 2012 threat to humanity''. His article began: "Most people are becoming aware of a possible doomsday anomaly said to occur on or around December 21, 2012, when, according to scholars, two-thirds of mankind can be eliminated."

Were I to own a newspaper it would have been on the front page because I truly believe that his article will soon be proven to have no parallel in importance at this time. In fact, my new book, The End of this Era. A linkage between Science and Religion, predictably the last of the eight which I have authored, is by far the most important of all I have ever written. It is largely based on the great Mayan prophecy.

Long before the birth of Christ, the central and southern regions of Mexico were inhabited by peoples who had reached a high degree of civilisation. They were first the Olmecs from about 2000 BC to 200 AD then the ancient Maya civilisation which reached its peak around 300-800 AD. They were justifiably regarded as the greatest ancient civilisation to have risen in the New World and were gifted with an inexplicably advanced state of mathematical and astro-calendrical knowledge without the use of telescopes or any of the modern scientific instruments of today's civilisation. When I became acquainted with the Mayan intelligence, I once spent several hours in the historical and anthropological museums in Mexico City studying the history of the ancient peoples of that region, their writings, customs and architecture.

Zero, for example, was used by the Mayans 900 years before the Arabs introduced it in Europe. The Gregorian calendar, as another example, was introduced in Europe in 1582 and was based on the best scientific knowledge available at that time. This, in fact, is still the most widely used calendar in the world today. It replaced the Julian calendar which was previously introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BC.

More recently, scientific advances have given the length of the solar year to be 365.2422 days but strangely and inexplicably enough, the Mayan calendar (between 300 and 800 AD) had previously achieved even greater accuracy and had calculated the solar year to be 365.2420 days, a minor error of only 0.0002 of a day. They also calculated the length of the lunar month to be 29.53029 days, which is only within 30 seconds of what we now know to be its actual length of 29.53059 days! But from where came this genius?

Now, according to the Mayans, the universe operated in great cycles of approximately five years and their own civilisation was said to be in the fifth cycle. The four other civilisations before them were destroyed by great natural disasters. This, the era of the fifth cycle in which we are now in, they calculated to end by another major cataclysm in the winter solstice of December 21, 2012, after which the sixth cycle will begin.

The Mayans and Aztecs were sun worshippers as they realised that without the sun, life could not be sustained on planet Earth. But the sun is anything but a smooth round ball of fire. Close up, it is a raging nuclear furnace. First discovered by Galileo in the 16th century, sunspots are larger-than-earth magnetic storms that blemish the solar surface and they can unleash as much energy as 10 billion hydrogen bombs. The world's astronomers have no idea why they occur and in roughly 11-year cycles, which is the usual amount of time from one so-called "solar maximum" (the greatest number of sunspots) to the next.

Significantly, very significantly, the next maximum solar flares are calculated to start in 2011 and peak in the year 2012. Their ejections can travel millions of miles into the interplanetary space and can cause very serious disruptions of satellite (including banking and military), radio and electronic communications. There are also scientists who believe that seismic events, earthquakes, volcanoes and hurricanes are triggered by sharp fluctuations in sunspot activity and also that certain planetary configurations and alignments have a powerful influence on the sun.

Indeed, the great wave of hurricanes (Katrina, Rita and Wilma) coincided with one of the stormiest events in the recorded history of the sun. One prominent Russian scientist has declared that the sun's peculiar behaviour today is unlike anything we have seen since the ending of the last ice age of 11,000 years ago and many solar physicists concur that the Sun's solar activity will peak at record-breaking levels in 2012.

The great English researcher and author Graham Hancock wrote about his research on the Mayans and Aztecs and said: "My research has convinced me that there was an advanced civilisation long long ago that was destroyed in a terrible cataclysm. I fear that our own civilisation may be destroyed by a similar cataclysm. When human beings from around the globe, and from many different cultures, share a powerful and overwhelming intuition that a cataclysm is approaching, we are within our rights to ignore them. However, it would be foolish to disregard what they seem to be saying.

"And what they seem to be saying to us is that cyclical, recurrent and near-total destructions of mankind are part and parcel of life on this planet, that such destructions have occurred many times before and that they will certainly occur again. Scholars normally attribute these myths to the fantasies of ancient poets. But what if the scholars are wrong?"

But maximum solar flares are not the major threat to planet Earth.
