So, what exactly do you believe? Are one of the doomsayers who believe the Mayan’s dire prediction that the the world will come to a cataclysmic end on 12/21 of this year or are you one of those who dismisses this whole Mayan end of the world prediction as nothing more than a bunch of bull? A recent photo of “El Castillo” a Mayan temple on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico has caused quite a stir on the internet lately and has people on both sides of the issue scratching their heads.
In the photo a beam of light is clearly visibly shooting skyward. In all, three photos were taken but the light beam is visible only in the last photo. An incredible bit of split second timing on the part of the photographer capturing a cosmic moment or some sort of camera glitch? NASA photo experts are claiming the latter. Of course they are! I’m actually really surprised they didn’t simply dismiss it as an optical phenomena of one kind or other like light refraction, swamp gas, weather balloons or some other common, cover-up nonsense!
Instead NASA photo experts who have studied images of the Martian surface and are fully versed in the wide range of potential equipment errors, are saying that the photo has not been Photoshopped or altered in any way and is simply a glitch in the Apple iphone camera, specifically it’s light sensor that caused the image. If you look closely at the photo you can see a lightning flash in the background. According to NASA the intensity of the lightning flash at the precise moment the photo was taken caused the cameras light sensors to malfunction creating the image we see as the beam of light. Well that’s all well and good, but it still doesn’t look like any kind of camera glitch I’ve ever seen! Hey, but they’re the experts!
So again I ask you, what do you think? Is this Mayan light show photo some timely sign of the coming apocalypse? A message to the Gods or alien life form? Before you answer, you should know these photos were actually taken back in 2009! So why are they just making the rounds on the internet? It’s all in the timing. With the so called ‘end of the world’ just months away the photo is generating a hell of a lot more interest now than it would have back in 09. It’s all part of the hype!
Personally I’m a doubting Thomas. I don’t believe anything cataclysmic will occur on 12/21/12. It’s all a bunch of bunk! Besides, the Mayans never actually predicted the end of the world! Their ‘long calendar’ is simply coming to an end. They viewed it as the end of an age or cycle, and the beginning of a new era. They never believed it would mark the end of the world. No, the end of the world myth is a doomsayers creation fueled by the media and others out to make a lot of bucks off of the Mayan’s past.
Remember the Y2K scare? All that hype and hoopla and what happened? Nothing, that’s what! It came and went and life went on. The same can be said about 12/21/12. The world isn’t going anywhere. The world as we know it will not end! 12/21 is just another 24 hour period that will pass just as quickly as any other day, then it will be 12/22/12 and life will continue. So don’t hold your breath waiting for the floods, earthquakes and fires that will ravage the earth or the meteor storms or the mysterious planet X that some believe will collide with the earth on that day. If there was such a planet aligning itself to strike earth it would already be quite visible in the skies above us. I’m telling you “it ain’t gonna happen!” The whole thing is all part of a grand media hoax, there is absolutely no factual basis for any of these ridiculous claims. Don’t be taken in by the doomsayers!
Now don’t get me wrong, I suppose something could actually happen on that day. Maybe there will be an earthquake, flood, hurricane or some other calamity somewhere on the earth, but it won’t be happening all over the planet! No way, No how! We all know the world as we know it will end someday for each and everyone of us. On the day of our death our world will indeed change forever, but the mass destruction of the earth? I don’t think so.
Only God knows when the end of times will come, and as far as I know He’s not sharing the date with anyone. Apparently He not only has a sense of humor, but likes secrets and surprises as well…
