There are 7 comments on BU Archaeologists Discover Oldest Maya Calendars

  1. Why is this not a bigger deal?!?! A BU faculty member disproves the “End of the World”! I read this before, and I still hold the same belief: make this story bigger news! People will gobble it up…

  2. A 260 day ceremonial calendar ? No that is not backed up. Why would a people use anything that could throw their calculations out ? Look to the Sun. Cycles within cycles.

  3. atras del sr. William Saturno hay un tapete muy interesante que muestra o grafica lo hueca que es la tierra. muestra el orificio del polo norte y el del polo sur y en el medio muestra la vision lateral de la tierra y la luz que emanan los huecos que existen en los polos.

  4. Saturno’s AR100 class remains to this day as one of my favorite courses taken at BU- because of Saturno more than the material, mind you. The man’s hilarious.

  5. why are people panicking? nothing is going to happen in this universe that is going to jeopardize the existence of life on earth. the truth is the Mayan calendar is not made to forecast the change(shift) of the orbitting system rather it was made to understand and served for the purpose of the relationship between the earth and the universe. however the Mayan calendar is widely misunderstood by the experts. the deepest mystery of the calendar and the pyramids that had been built by the Mayans has not been discovered until today by today’s experts as the Egyptian pyramids has been misunderstood as well.

  6. Concerning 21/12/2012..As per Mayan, there is no date beyond that. Doesnt means that the END of the WORLD. We could expect natural destructions might happen. But the real end as told by JESUS and other prophets, nobody knows! There are many signs yet to fullfill like the JERUSALEM TEMPLE TO BE RE-BUILT by their long time awaited MESSIAH, ANTICHRIST arrival, etc.
