Overview

12-20-2012; Our Last Golden Sunset? by R. S. Marshal

There has been a lot of talk about the approaching end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21st, 2012. Most people see it as the end of an era and the opening of a Golden Age. Many others see it as the rapidly approaching end of the world.
What most of these prophets seem to forget is that it had to be something the Maya themselves had predicted for the end of their calendar. Most scholars of the Mayans claim it is nothing but the end of the calendar and a new one will start immediately following, just like the calendars we use.
But why one of such an incredible length of time, and measured in days rather than years?
The Mayan scholars, the New Age gurus and the prophets of doom each seem to have their own agenda and it is not supported in the writings of the Maya themselves.
So, what were they really talking about?
Examine the search through the Mayan records and discovery the very different meaning they themselves had applied to the end of their ancient calendar.

About the Author

R. S. Marshal is a statistician working in the D.C. Metropolitan area of Northern Virginia. Preparing research for a novel about the Maya led him to investigate this doomsday phenomena surrounding the Maya Calendar.
Realizing every writer on the subject seemed to be far wide of the mark, he put his novel on hold to complete this volume.
There was a radio interview with the author when the volume was completed in 2009 but it had not found a publisher until this year.
