Nostradamus and the Mayan 2012 Myth

Contribution by Sam B

With the 21st of December on the horizon, it’s time we settle the 2012 ordeal once and for all. Are we about to see (or not see, as the case would be) the end of the world? Should we discard our jobs and responsibilities and go looting? So many predictions and doubts have been thrown around recently that no one is really sure anymore. To settle the debate we’re going back almost 500 years, to the time of Nostradamus and his most prestigious writings; in doing so we will illuminate the greatest mystery of our time and see that’s it all a load of nonsense. Here are 4 reasons why 21/12/12 is nothing to worry about.

1)      Nostradamus never mentioned 2012

It’s true. The one crippling, undeniable fact is that 2012 was never on Nostradamus’ radar. He never said a word about it. What’s worse is that one of the quatrains (found in Century V) that apparently links to the impending apocalypse is ridiculously vague:

Where all is good, the Sun all beneficial and the moon / is abundant, its ruin approaches: / From the sky it advances to change your fortune. / In the same state as the seventh rock.

Anyone with but a smidgeon of intelligence can see this relates to some sort of collision, with an asteroid perhaps. But that’s about it. It could be hurtling towards your window right now for all this tells you.

2)      The Mayans didn’t predict the end of the world

Despite the fact that most of the apocalyptic-hoopla comes from the Mayan calendar, and the fact that it ends on the 21st of December, there is no proof whatsoever that they thought this is the date the world will end. What this date really signifies is the end of a 5,125 year old cycle of time and the start of a new spiritual era. No explosions or anything. In fact, it all sounds rather nice.

3)      Prophecies mean whatever you  want them to

Nostradamus quatrains are so ambiguous they could mean anything. Despite a few specifics dotted here and there (like the name ‘London’ in the quatrain that apparently predicts the Great Fire of London) everything else is completely up for interpretation. The fact remains that the prophecies are so devoid of tangible, useful knowledge that they can only be used to predict an event after it’s happened. With regards to a 2012 asteroid collision, that’s about as much use as putting a book over your head.

4)      Apocalypse sells

The 2012 apocalypse means cash for interpreters – and tons of it. It helped Hollywood to sell the disaster movie. It’s helping ludicrous firms all over the world sell fallout shelters. Do a quick Google search and you will find you can literally buy a fall-out shelter for the end of 2012! When nothing happens, I guess it will make a cool poker room, or at least somewhere to stash your little boy when he’s doing a drum rehearsal.

The idea that the end of the world will end in just six weeks time is a frightening thought, but it is the doomsayers that make the thought frightening. If these type of people did the proper research they would know the Mayans never mentioned the end of the world, but rather the end of a cycle and Nostradamus has prophecies up to 3790. So you will have a merry Christmas and when you make a toast at New Year, spare a thought for the Mayans, Nostradamus and the idiots sitting in their fall-out shelters.
