As scientists continue to debate the cycle of global warming and the cause and effect of what’s happening in our world, I propose that we instead take a play from the Mayan playbook and “look to the past to predict the future.” The Maya believe that in order to understand what tomorrow will hold for us, we simply must look to the past for the cycles that have come before and study those behaviors to know what earth changes tomorrow will bring.
There is no denying the intense changes that are happening here on earth – the record heat, the intense flooding, and melting ice caps. The earth is experiencing major changes and whether it’s man-induced carbon-produced global warming, or an overactive or underactive sun, or the sudden acceleration of the shifting poles, we can expect that the next 2 years of earth changes will be interesting to watch.
Should the earth heat up and melt the polar ice-caps, civilization will be thrown into a water world of sorts – we’ll lose an unbelievable amount of shoreline that will cause total disruption for the majority of mankind, as nearly half of the world’s population lives within 200 Kilometers of a coastline.
On the other hand, if these changes are part of a natural cyclical occurrence – the world as we know it will cease to exist. For example, within the last 2 years, scientists all over the world are gathering to discuss severe space weather and are now scrambling to figure out the impact on earth. Or if there is a sudden shifting of poles, not only would our shorelines be wiped out almost instantaneously, but the solar winds, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes would cause complete devastation and the mass extinction of most species.
Neither scenario is very optimistic – quite bleak to be honest – however, where global warming would provide for a civilization to continue to survive, the pole shift scenario or an unstable sun would not.
But what are the odds of the pole shifting suddenly? Not very high, according to scientists. Although lately there has been reconsideration and recognition that the poles are shifting and accelerating as we speak. But what causes the earth to shift as it has so many times in the past – do rising temperatures play a part? Does the location of planets? Or does the Sun’s solar activity and magnetic force play the ultimate part?
According to the Maya, on December 22, 2012, the “4th world” will come to an end and the “5th world” will begin. The Maya know this precise date, just like they knew the precise date when the “3rd world” ended some 5200 years ago, August 14, 3114 BC. The Maya were all about tracking cycles – weather it be the sun cycle, the moon cycle, the harvest cycle, etc. – they kept track of the energies of the earth and were able to make predictions based on what happened in the past.
So I decided to look at the past to figure out what our future will hold and discover what was happening around the world based on the geology of the earth some 5200 years ago. To put it mildly, the evidence is quite astounding and completely validates the Mayan’s end of world transition and we can now understand why in 3114 BC the Maya believed the 3rd world was coming to an end … because it literally did.
The Earth Changes in the Past
As part of my research, I visited the Stanford University geology website http://www.stanford.edu/~meehan/donnelly/paleo1.html – to see what happened to the physical earth 5200 years ago. Since radiocarbon dating isn’t 100% accurate because as it is affected by the atmosphere’s changing concentration of carbon 14, which may in turn be affected by climatic cycles – I used a 250 year lense and during this time found evidence across the globe of major cataclysmic events.
According to Stanford research the earth changes that occurred were: “Some tentative conclusions: Millennial-scale warming terminates with a period of climatic disturbance (so-called Piora oscillation”) and flooding in the lower latitudes (Nile, Arizona, Morocco, Israel, Mesopotamia); abrupt cooling at higher latitudes, possibly related to oceanic effects, especially in Northern Europe, and an oscillation in sea levels followed by 10-15 ft. alluvial deposition in river valleys.”
What this means in plain English is that a major “disturbance” occurred – what is described as meteor or volcanic induced – that caused severe flooding (i.e., the flood?) all over the world (up to 300 feet high in some places), the temperatures in the north to suddenly turned very cold (according to the Hopi, when the 3rd World transitioned it “spun crazily out of control and froze in space”) as well as a major dying out of plant species across the globe.
In reviewing the geological data of the earth’s changes over the past 6,000 years, there is no other point in time with as many physical changes as what happened in a short 250 year period. So we can either assume that all these changes occurred over a 250 year period, or we can assume that radiocarbon isn’t 100% accurate and that all these events could have taken place in a very short period of time.
How short of time frame did all these changes occur? Was it really over 250 years? Or maybe just a few years … or even a day. What were the Maya referring to when they talked about the violent end of the 3rd world?
In analyzing the geological evidence, it looks like there was an unbelievable stormy and wet period, with flooding in all regions of the globe, with what appeared to be a violent shifting of the earth (i.e., rivers changing course), most likely caused by earthquakes, with documented volcanic eruptions in the Northern hemispheres.
The first thing that jumps out is the weather. From a geological standpoint, during the transition of the 3rd World into the 4th, a thousand years of wet weather started. There is evidence of wide scale intense storms and flooding. This is the time of the Mesopotamia flood, which is the biblical flood we’re all aware of and no matter how skeptical we are, there is geological proof of the flood. According to Stanford research:
3250 BC: Global; Stormy weather: Beginning of 1000 yrs. wet, stormy weather. A neoglacial period characterized by wetter, stormier conditions; starting between 5000 and 4000 years BP and extending to about 3500 yrs BP (Enzel, Quat R 1992).
3150 BC: Global; Paleoclimatic flood, global: Climatic conditions at time of Mesopotamian flood, from several scientific sources of paleoclimatic data.
3150 BC: Mesopotamia; The Flood: The Flood 3150 BC(?). Abrupt cooling at higher latitudes, possibly related to oceanic effects, especially in Northern Europe, corresponding to peak of megalith cultures. Probable oscillation in sea level shortly before 3000 BC followed by 10-15 ft. alluvial deposition in river valleys.
3150 BC: USA, SW; SW US flood peak: 3000 SW US flood peak. According to Victor Baker of the University of Arizona, a period of flooding began in the southwest starting at about 5000 BP and ending at 3600 BP, with a sharp peak at about 4400 BP. (Starts at 3500 BC and peaks at 3150 BC)
3001 BC: Israel; Mt. Sedom caves: Mount Sedom– otherwise known as Mt. Sodom, said to be the site of the famous biblical event — is a salt formation bordering on the Dead Sea. Oak twigs and driftwood found in the caves must have been transported by floodwaters from some other part of the shore many miles away since oak trees do not grow in salt. Evidently the water level was some 300 feet higher at this time, implying heavy flooding on the Jordon River and lower evaporation rates due to cooler weather. No other event in the last ten thousand years matches this. The oak twigs have been dated by radiocarbon technique at 4350 + or – 75 RCYBP. Frumkin, A., The Holocene climatic record…1991 The Holocene 1, 3 pp. 191-200.
So not only was there flooding across the globe, but there was also a dramatic shifting of rivers and changes to the flows. According to Stanford research:
3200 BC: Mesopotamia; Tigris-Euphrates: Sharp reduction of Tigris-Euphrates stream flow at 5200 cal yrs BP; also Iranian Plateau changes from humid to arid at same time. Johnson and Kay, Climatic Change, 3 (1981) p 251.
3200 BC: America: Missouri’s Pomme de Terre River: Has undergone a major change in its regime, down cutting a channel about 15 ft. deep. This is the largest record of change in the river’s behavior since 10000 BP and is interpreted as having been caused by an abrupt climatic change.
3150 BC: Turkey; Lake Van Oscillation: Abrupt change in sedimentation rate of Lake Van in Turkey indicative of rapid climatic fluctuation at (varve) dates of 5200 BP (3150 BC) (Palaeo, 122 (1996) p 107).
3110 BC: China; Yangtze River: Dating of sediments in the Yangtze River delta suggests a sedimentation rate so high between 5060 and 4460 BP, accompanied by a major change of flow into a new sub-delta, and followed by a period of deep water with clay deposition.
3090 BC: Egypt; Egypt, Nile: Earliest recorded flood recorded on a “Nilometer” in 3090 BC during the reign of King Djer of the Early Dynastic period.
There was also a huge Icelandic volcanic eruption that caused serious climate changes and affected plant life across the globe. According to Stanford research:
3190 BC: Global; Heckla eruption, Iceland: 4570 BP-1950+570= 3190 BC.
3100 BC: Greenland; GISP ice core: 3100 BC rapid climatic change shown on GISP ice core. Science 12/22/95.
3250 BC: Europe, Piora Valley: Piora oscillation, named after the Piora Valley where climatic irregularities were first noted. A major break in the climatic regime resulted in a re-advance of the Alpine glaciers and a retreat of forests. Elms and linden trees declined in Europe and North America. In northern Europe the oak and hazel declined or disappeared. Changes occurred as far away as the Andes, Alaska, and the Kenyan highlands, so the disturbance was evidentially of global magnitude extended throughout the world.
3199 BC: Europe; Irish oaks: Tree rings in Northern Ireland are narrow in 1153 BC 1628 BC 3199 BC and 4377 BC. The 3199 BC value is associated with an acidity peak in Camp Century ice cores dated at 3150 BC demonstrating unquestionably adverse weather conditions, probably due either to volcanic eruption or meteoric impact, occurred at this time.
As Stanford research states, ice cores and other core samples taken from Iceland and Alaska, to Africa and the Andes and every place in between, there was unquestionably “adverse weather conditions, probably due either to volcanic eruption or meteoric impact” that created major changes here on earth.
With all the different 2012 predictions and all the debate about what the Mayans meant by transitioning worlds, I think the evidence is incredibly clear. Look to the past to predict the future. We cannot ignore the facts that sometime around 3114 BC – when the Mayan 3rd world came to an end – something major happened to the earth. In looking at the paleontology of the earth in any other given time frame, there is nothing that suggests anything like this has occurred since. Although there have been volcanic eruptions over the years in various parts of the earth, to have all of this activity condensed into such a small time-frame is truly unique.
To ignore the warning signs is to be completely irresponsible. Most people are focused on man caused global warming, but I honestly don’t think that is our worry. I think we are part of a bigger cycle that we are just now beginning to understand. Global warming has almost masked the larger cycle and if we choose to only focus on the warming, then we run the risk of being caught off guard when the larger cycle hits … which could happen in 2 short years.
Let’s look to the past to start understanding what is about to happen, what is happening and how we need to prepare as a species for survival.
