On the winter solstice one year before the end of the Mayan calendar... a huge Mayan site is discovered in the U.S.

http://cdn2-b.examiner.com/sites/default/files/styles/image_full_width/hash/cb/3a/cb3a39c1f0c9934267f6c8f12df878a7.jpg

Archaeological zone 9UN367 at Track Rock Gap, near Georgia’s highest mountain, Brasstown Bald, is a half mile (800 m) square and rises 700 feet (213 m) in elevation up a steep mountainside. Visible are at least 154 stone masonry walls for agricultural terraces, plus evidence of a sophisticated irrigation system and ruins of several other stone structures. Much more may be hidden underground. It is possibly the site of the fabled city of Yupaha, which Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto failed to find in 1540, and certainly one of the most important archaeological discoveries in recent times.

BLAIRSVILLE, GA (December 21, 2011) -- Around the year 800 AD the flourishing Maya civilization of Central America suddenly began a rapid collapse. A series of catastrophic volcanic eruptions were followed by two long periods of extreme drought conditions and unending wars between city states.

Cities and agricultural villages in the fertile, abundantly watered, Maya Highlands were the first to be abandoned. Here, for 16 centuries, Itza Maya farmers produced an abundance of food on mountainside terraces. Their agricultural surpluses made possible the rise of great cities in the Maya Lowlands and Yucatan Peninsula. When the combination of volcanic eruptions, wars and drought erased the abundance of food, famines struck the densely populated Maya Lowlands. Within a century, most of the cities were abandoned. However, some of the cities in the far north were taken over by the Itza Maya and thrived for two more centuries.

The commonly known date for the winter solstice is December 21st... That's why Christmas is on the 25th. Because the "sun" dies for three days... and is risen on the 25th. But, yeah the Gregorian calendar is retarded.

"The winter solstice occurs exactly when the axial tilt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_tilt) of a planet's polar hemisphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poles_of_astronomical_bodies) is farthest away from the star (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star) that it orbits. Earth's maximum axial tilt to our star, the Sun (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun), during a solstice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solstice) is 23° 26'. More evidently from high latitudes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_latitudes), a hemisphere's winter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter) solstice occurs on the shortest day and longest night of the year, when the sun's daily maximum elevation in the sky is the lowest. Since the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, other terms are often used for the day on which it occurs, such as midwinter, the longest night or the first day of winter.

The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the winter solstice usually occurs on December 21 to 23 each year in the Northern Hemisphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Hemisphere)..."

Nice post. The underground stuff is fascinating. There is no way of knowing how much stuff is either buried or sunken in the oceans deep.

Some archaeological chick discovered this method of applying an infra-red filter deal to satellite photographs of Egypt. What they discovered was absolutely amazing. The ancient city of Tanis, for example was enormous and can be seen in the infra-red buried under nothing but barren desert. There is nothing there today and nobody would have guessed they were walking over a hidden city. In the infra-red, you can see streets and houses and temples and all kinds of stuff. She also located a bunch of other buried pyramids, temples, and city sites. Egypt must have been very highly populated at one time ... much moreso than anyone previously realized. Far more modern, too.

I'll bet that, if they ever figure out where and how to look, they'll find the same to be true of South and Central America. Human beings have an ancient history we have no clue about.

Wait. What? It dies for three days, starting on the 21st? Three days following would be (21st= day one, 22nd= day two, 23rd= day three) Dec. 24. So is the sun dead for four days?

When I was in Belize I toured Lamanai (same ruins Gene Simmons later proposed to Shannon Tweed at). The guide said only 5% of the ruins had been excavated, and there are plenty of ruins in Central/South America that are yet to be found, let alone explored. Humans have managed a lot of discovery but, even today, we don't know what's in the deep ocean and we just found 100,000 lowland gorillas. So Mayans in Georgia, sure, I'll buy it...

True story: it is being widely hypothesized that the Mayans expected Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy to be released on December 20, 2012. They specifically scheduled the end of the world to occur the day following so they could guarantee they'd die happy. Joke's on them, though: the release date is set for December 22.

EVERYONE CALM THE FUCK DOWN

A year from today the world will come to an end, according to some who cite the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar as evidence of a Dec. 21, 2012, apocalypse. But both astronomers and experts on Mesoamerican history say the Mayan apocalypse is likely to be another in a long line of failed doomsdays.

According to the Maya Long Count calendar, the winter solstice of 2012 — Dec. 21, 2012 —is the end of a b'ak'tun, a 144,000-day cycle that has repeated 12 times since the mythical Maya creation date. The b'ak'tun that will end in 2012 is the 13th, supposedly a full 5,200-year cycle of creation.

Because of this end date, a number of predictions have attached themselves to Dec. 21, from the end of the world via collision with a rogue planet, to the ushering in of a new world era. But neither historians nor astronomers put much credence in these predictions. [End of the World? Top Doomsday Fears]

Deciphering the Mayan calendar

In fact, according to archaeologists, it wasn't the Mayans who linked the end of the 13th b'ak'tun with the end of the world. According to Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History, when Judeo-Christians began to decipher Mayan writings, their preconceived notions of apocalypse and the end of the world led them to link Mayan calendar cycles with doomsday.

"A lot of the end-of-the-world mythologies are the result of Christian eschatology introduced by Franciscan missionaries," John Hoopes, a scholar of Maya history at the University of Kansas, told Livescience, referring to missionaries just entering the New World andcoming into contact with native people.

Maya scholars disagree on exactly how the Maya people would have interpreted the end of their calendar cycle, Hoopes said, though many say they would have seen it as a new beginning.

Astronomy anomalies

Many of the supposed 2012 doomsday scenarios involve astronomical phenomena: A rogue planet, solar storms or a planetary alignment. But NASA scientists say these aren't real threats.

One theory holds that a rogue body called "Planet X" or "Nibiru" will collide with Earth in 2012, snuffing out our planet. The only problem with this theory? Nibiru is made up.

"There's no evidence whatsoever that Nibiru exists," said Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object program office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., at a public talk Dec. 8. Yeomans said theories that Nibiru is lurking behind our sun make no sense.

"We would have seen it years ago," he said.

Likewise, Yeomans said, there are no planetary alignments or other astronomical anomalies set for Dec. 21, 2012.

Our stormy sun

One doomsday theory based on perhaps a pinch of science involves the sun. After years of relative peace, the electromagnetic activity on the surface of the sun is heating up, according to NASA. Some fear that an enormous solar flare will engulf Earth or otherwise destroy us.

But this ramping up of activity is typical of our home star, explained Daniel Baker, the director of the laboratory for atmospheric and space physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, in a talk at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union this month. [Gallery: Our Amazing Sun]

"The sun undergoes an approximately 11-year period of activity," Baker said. "It goes from very weak conditions, the solar minimum, to some very large solar maximum numbers."

The sun has been quiet even by solar minimum standards in recent years, Baker said. The upcoming maximum — set to peak in 2013, not 2012 — is expected to be average. Humans do have to watch out for solar storms, which can disrupt satellite communications and electrical grids here on Earth. Nonetheless, industries can prepare for solar storms, which is why agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have centers whose sole job is to predict these storms' coming.

Different industries adjust in different ways, said Rodney Viereck of the NOAA Space Environment Center. Airlines that rely on satellite communications will fly at latitudes where alternative forms of communication are possible. Industries dependent on Global Positioning System (GPS) technology will delay crucial activities. Power grids will adjust voltages to handle electromagnetic fluctuations.

2012: Just another year

Finally, theories abound online about one more scientific phenomenon and the 2012 apocalypse: a magnetic pole reversal on Earth. Believers worry that a flip-flop of the Earth's magnetic field will throw civilization back into the Stone Age, or perhaps destroy all life on the planet, by temporarily dropping the magnetic-field barrier to radiation from space. NASA scientists, however, say Earthlings can rest easy.

According to NASA, the planet's magnetic field reverses every 200,000 to 300,000 years, though we've currently gone more than twice that without a swap.

But these flips don't happen in an instant, according to the space agency. They occur over hundreds of thousands of years. The last reversal happened 780,000 years ago, according to NASA, and the fossil record shows no sign of any disruption in life.

I think you've been watching too much Colbert Report.

John Hoopes, a scholar of Maya history at the University of Kansas,

There's a joke here somewhere involving the University of Kansas, the Big 12 conference, and an interest in dead civilizations.

How dare you? Are you questioning the source? Surely examiner.com upholds nothing but the finest of journalistic standards. Otherwise they wouldn't be posting articles like:


Garlic is magical!

Just to be clear, the Winter Solstice of 2011 came and went at 0530 GMT 12/22/11.

Witnessed & photographed Solar Noon at the (Paolo) Soleri Bridge in Scottsdale yesterday. Yes, the sun was out in cloudless sky at solar noon.

Once a year, on solstice, if the Arizona sun is shinning, a line will form between two large support columns and follow a painted red line across the length of the bridge. Coincidentally, on summer solstice there is no shadow at all...

Maybe this will help:

The moment that the center of the Earth lines up with that yellow line segment to the right of the Sun is the Winter Solstice. That moment is expressed as 0530 GMT on 12/22/11.

We need a count down meter thread to post in so we can prepare.

Here's how it'll go down. The Chiefs wind up drafting a QBOTF and go undefeated in 2012. They have the top ranked Offense, Defense and ST in the league and are outscoring their opponents by 35 points per game.

Then December 21, 2012 happens and well...you know the rest.

...Chiefs fans are forced to wait another 5000 years for a shot at the title...

DAMMIT SCOTT!!!
