No Clear Evidence of a Maya 2012 Doomsday Prophecy

Do the Maya elders predict doomsday?

The modern Maya peoples have an elected council of elders currently headed by Don Alejandro. In recent interviews he has been very clear in stating that the Maya do not believe there is a doomsday tied to the end of the 13 Bak’tun cycle.

In fact Maya elders have only ever ventured as far as suggesting that times of change at the end of such eras may include serious natural upheavals, much as we see our climate changing now.

No Maya elder is stating a complete global devastation ahead. I find that most of their talks carry a very positive air to them, they explain the benefits of the changes they see post 2012.

Is a doomsday within the written prophecies?
