Everything You Wanted to Know About 2012 But Were Afraid to Ask

December 21, 2012 is the end date of the sophisticated Long Count Calendar created by the ancient Maya in Central America. But is it a doomsday that is foretold in the Mayan calendar, the Chinese oracle of the I Ching or in an Internet-based prophetic software program? Is there any truth to these doomsday prophecies? Some theorists believe that on that date, the Earth will experience unprecedented, cataclysmic disasters ranging from massive earthquakes and tsunamis to nuclear reactor meltdowns, while yet others see a coming renewal, a rebirth of consciousness.

To help sort out the information, Gary Baddeley, the writer/producer of 2012: Science or Superstition and president of The Disinformation Company will present the current schools of thought and answer questions from a public not certain if they should prepare for survival or something else entirely.

On the day that Roland Emmerich’s mega-budget disaster film 2012 opens nationally, discover the truth about the “End of Days” and the 2012 phenomenon with the video conference “Everything You Wanted to Know About 2012 But Were Afraid to Ask”, presented by The Disinformation Company, producer to the bestselling documentary 2012: Science or Superstition and it’s companion book. The video conference will be hosted by Justin.TV on Friday, November 13th, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. To participate on that day go to this link, or follow the conversation on Twitter.

Here’s the trailer for 2012: Science or Superstition, we’re looking forward to your questions and hope you can join the conversation. If you can’t make the conference, feel free to submit a question by comment below and we will try to answer as many as possible.

    “2012: Time for Change”
    projects a radical alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee Joao Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 will herald the birth of a regenerative planetary culture, where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

    Interviews with design scientists, anthropologists, physicists such as Dean Radin, Barbara Marx Hubbard, John Todd and Paul Stamets and celebrities such as Sting, Ellen Page and Gilberto Gil.

    2012 is not a hoax. Roland Emmerich's 2012 movie trailer pretty much depicts what is to happen. The Maya were not the only ones who knew about 2012 as most of the ancient world did from 3,000 BC up till the 1800s when the knowledge was lost. Washington DC was laid out to reflect 2012 as a reminder to visitors. Monuments carved in stones were left world wide to warn our generation of 2012. Christ taught it in the Bible but few have understood it. The ancient world understood 2012 very well; the modern world, lest of all the modern Maya, lack the understanding thereof and are stumbling in the dark pertaining to 2012. I am a Mayan expert and I am the first person to fully understand why the Maya end their long count calendar on Dec. 21, 2012. In fact, many cycles of time end on that date for good reason. Read my non-fiction 2012 trilogy, The Ark of Millions of Years, the most comprehensive 2012 books in the world based on scientific, historical, biblical, and Mayan facts. Available in Barnes & Noble bookstores and online bookstores. Read and prepare while you can for the time is short. I write under the pen of E. J. Clark.

      “am a Mayan expert and I am the first person to fully understand why the Maya ” how you can claim you are the 1st is a very strange statement. You must have quite a big head = )

        Rob,
        I am the 1st person to fully understand the Mayan long count calendar as pertaining to why it ends on Dec. 21, 2012 and why they believe, as I do, that it is the end of the world. It is much more than merely re-starting their calendar as 2012 is complex. I am also a researcher of ancient texts for over 45 years. While researching these texts, looking for answers, I found a missing “key” piece of information pertaining to the creation that was lost about 6 thousand years ago. This “key” was the key that unlocked the Mayan calendar as to why their calendar ends on that date and why they believe that it is the end of the world. Without this “key” piece of information it is impossible to understand the Mayan end time date. No one else has ever written about this lost “key” piece of information except me. Book one of the trilogy restores this “key” piece of information back to the world in fulfillment of an ancient Jewish prophecy. Had we retained this ancient “key” piece of information, there would not be the chasm between evolutionists and creationists that we see today for the “key” answers everything…including the Mayan end time date.
        Read my books.
        Thanks,

          Wow, that is a pretty bold statement, Mary. What exactly is this “key” that nobody else knows of or understands, if you don't mind my asking? I'm a 17 year student and initiate with several notable teachers in authentic Meso-American spiritual traditions and lineages, who have a great deal of information which is unreleased to the public as of yet, and I would love to know what you are referring to. None of my teachers predict catastrophic or apocalyptic scenarios anything like what you describe in your post. To say that your “secret” information supersedes the indigenous wisdom directly passed from teacher to student for thousands of years smacks a little of hubris, but I'm open to all things. I checked your website and couldn't find a reference. Respectfully, a Balam.

          • maryengland

            Dear Mouse,
            Yes, it is a bold statement that I can back up. If you will read Vol. One of my trilogy, The Ark of Millions of Years, it discloses the “key”…in fact the entire book is based around that “key” piece of knowledge. We had to re write a new creation story for earth using the lost “key”. Vol. One has been out now for about 5 years. Many people and some organizations are studing what I wrote. A group called STAR in Phoenix Arizona are actually teaching the doctrines found in that book. The missing “key” is not a secret but to understand it, one must read that book to study all the documention etc. as book is 550 pages, but it was purposefully written for the average reader because we wanted all to understand what I had discovered.
            I want to change our website to give more information on what the books are about,but my co-author who maintains the site is in process of moving back to the east, so will have to wait until he is settled….but it will be changed and plus we will be installing updates to the books on the website for free reading. The “key” was discovered in a an ancient record called the Zohar, that was preserved by the Jews. It wasn't until it was published into English about 18 yrs ago that I was able to read it…published in 5 un-indexed volumes. As I said previously, the “key” was what unlocked the Mayan Tzolk'n and long count calendars as pertaining to 2012. Without this “key” piece of information, it is impossible to understand why the Maya end their long count calendar on that date and why they believe, as I now do, it is the end of the world. As Paul Harvey would say….”now for the rest of the story”and there is much more to the story in the second and third volumes. Be assured that a cataclysm is coming. The ancient world understood 2012 very well; the modern world, lest of all the modern Maya, lack the knowledge and understanding thereof, and are stumbling in the dark pertaining to the Mayan end time date of Dec. 21, 2012. Although I am a Mayan expert, I am not known very well…lets say I'm a newcomer on the scene. ( I do speak Yucatec Maya. I'm going back to Mexico this January for a month to practice the language among the Yucatan Maya.) Because of that one fact, we had to self publish our own books as it is nearly impossible to publish through traditional publishers if you are not known. Mouse, truly you have to read book one to understand the “key” because it is not possible to say in a few words, sentences, or paragraphs what it took me to write in 550 pages. Book One comes in paperback and hardback covers. You can buy them on Amazon cheaper then I can sell them. I think paperbacks are around $17? Haven't checked lately. Get one and read. You will then understand. The picture on the cover of book three shows what will happen to earth, the true earth or original creation on the Mayan end time date. It is passing through the Egyptian winged disk.( a more modern version of the winged disk due to limitation of space on cover)..the ancient Egyptians understood 2012 very well and is the true meaning of the winged disk. I'm also an expert on ancient symbolism. Thanks, E. J. Clark/Mary England author
            P.S. I do admire one so young as you being so well informed in these matters.

    what ever i do not belive it.

    • maryengland

      You do not believe because you do not have the correct knowledge and understanding of 2012. Read my books….Thanks…..

  • kevinscienceofthemayan

    i really know that the world is gonna end in 2012 because i were study tha mayan for 5 years and i can't find a misktake in anythinq the i were learniq about tha mayan so in march 33 2011 we are gonna to get on a new year for the mayas so in the day the sun is gonna make explote and in the earth is happening earthqukes,the volcanos are gonna make eruptions on all noth america firts is california,seattle,colorado.vegas.sout luis,chicago ect.

    • maryengland

      Well, sortof…A cataclysm will happen to planet Earth because of its 3 day transit through the “dark rift” of the Milky Way Dec. 21-23rd, 2012. It is what lurks in the “dark rift” that causes the cataclysm. The sun will not explode. The Earth will shake from above, not below. However, the shaking will cause earthquakes. It is a universal shaking of the Earth, meaning it happens all over the planet at the same time. All will be affected. The Maya said that it is the end of the true Earth, the original creation, in this universe. Planet Earth is not the true Earth, however it will experience a cataclysm that knocks it back to the Stone Age. Have to read my books to understand that statement. Read my books….Thanks, E. J. Clark/Mary England

    if you believe you know the truth better than the ancient maya’s who are beter in understanding the universe than we are now, then you really are a arrogant brat who thinks he knows best. But then again its not your fault for thinking like that, humans have been manipulated and misleaded with the wrong info for maybe thousends of years. So even your Parents, GrandParents, GreatGrandParents might all have been kept dumb, and we all know you will believe your family more than some outsider, looks like a very good plan by a very superior entity. First rule in war = know your enemy, and human kind does not. Well at least the biggest part doesnt.
    But anyways, 2012 is just a short time away from us. So lets just wait and see what happens, maybe its an apocalipse, but maybe thats a misunderstanding maybe is a stage of enlightment.
    Or maybe both are true, maybe the weak will die and the strong will prevail. Or maybe some higher power will finally show its face, for better or for worse. Every individual makes up its own mind of good and evil, what might seem evil in on persons eyes might be the opposite of another. You know its true, humans are not perfect, even the bible states that God or whatever gave humans one inportant task, “learn to live with one and other”, witch could mean alot. Maybe it means that human needs to know himself so it can understand the other, but if we dont know our history (the true one that is) than we dont know shit now do we..?

    We’ll see how 2012 will unfold, maybe im wrong eventually or maybe im right.
    Doesnt really matter anyways, because thats all we can do : SPECULATE….
    Im kinda exited about the happening, that i can be part of the end and beginning of a allignment with the center of our galaxy. Yes is a bit scary, but its amazing at the same time…

    Ow yeah does anyone know where i can find some info about the 13th zodiac sign “snakebearer”
    If im correct its between the sacritarius and the scorpio sign…
    im still trying to figure out the connection between those 4 lines meeting up with the center of the galaxy and the mayan calender…

    Well, seems to me, whether the cataclysm is true or not, there’s  b***** all we can do about it, anything that massive won’t be survived by anyone without access to very specialised quarters, and even  those would probably crack apart if the quakes are as bad as people are saying. So better to just be with your loved ones and die with a peaceful mind, surely
