2012 By John Liptak–Cover features Aztec Calendar, Nothing to do with Maya

Our chuckle of the morning comes from the photo of this Half Priced Books mark down of John J. Liptak, Ed.D’s 2010 book entitled: 2012. 

2012 by John J. Liptak Ed. D. Features the AZTEC Calendar Stone, Nothing to do with the Ancient Maya

It’s about prepping for the “spiritual” changes that he says will take place on Dec. 21, 2012 and talks about the Maya Tree of Life and on and on and on.

But for starters, the cover features the AZTEC CALENDAR STONE!  Something the ancient Maya never saw, used or anything else.

So if Dr. Liptak’s book cover isn’t even right, makes you wonder about what’s inside it….  A brief review and we left it on the shelf.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO of an Ancient Aliens Guest About 2012 and The Maya

The Season Four premiere of  Ancient Aliens on H2, began a few weeks ago with two shows about the 2012 meme and the alleged catastrophic predictions of the Maya and somehow, how ancient aliens were involved.  One of the guest scholars of those two episodes, Dr. Mark Van Stone on Twitter, (@MayaTruth) has provided The Wonders Expedition with an exclusive video interview we’ve entitled:  What Ancient Aliens Left Out.

Dr. Van Stone is one of the world’s most recognized Mayanists and the author of the book, 2012: Science and Prophecy of the Ancient Maya.  It’s a great read and we encourage you to check it out, along with his Website.  He’s fun to talk with, doesn’t have a bad sun tan and Einstein hair, and most importantly of all, thinks that the presumption that the work of ancient humans being done instead by aliens is “racism against humanity.”

We are excited to bring you this exclusive interview and will be providing additional interviews as we go along, hopefully with other recognized scholars on 2012.  We’d like to talk with Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, Erich Von Daniken or David Childress, too, just to give them a fair shot. 


As the season premier began in mid-February, we began to tweet about some of the things we were seeing wrong in the show and wound up having a similar conversation with Dr. Van Stone, whom you will see is very colorful and friendly.  The more we talked, the more it became apparent that what he was saying needed to be shared with you.

As we’ve noted before, the Lord Pacal Sarcophogus cover, all decked out as a spaceship model is pretty cool.  The thing is, it just doesn’t have anything to do with reality.

Last Friday night’s show probably was the most appalling of all–the thought that Ancient Aliens, now not so ancient, were and possible are controlling the weather and natural events on our planet to affect the outcome of the human race.  Amazing.


The conversations with Dr. Van Stone have been very engaging and informative.  In fact, we’re proud to announce that on March 22, 2012, he will be available in a Webinar to talk more about the fantastic predictions about 2012 and Mayan culture and allow you to ask questions and interact with him like you cannot when he and others are in a TV show.  For this first show, we’re offering a discounted rate of $7.99 and it will begin at 6 p.m. PST (9 EST/8 CST) in the United States.  Sign up today, we are going to limit the size of the first Webinar so we don’t want you to miss out.

Ancient Aliens 2012 Show–What would the Mayans say?

Update 9:02 p.m. CST: Well, the second show tonight has started and the summation is this: WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE in 2012.  We have heard from Dr. Mark Van Stone’s representatives and will be talking with him after he’s had a chance to see tonight’s shows.  LOL, and we just saw he’s in the show.  How cool is that?


UPDATE: We now are 24 minutes into the first show and wow, this isn’t as far-fetching as we thought it was going to be.  In fact, they’ve pulled out some pretty cool stuff.  The 3D statue of the Mayan king, Pakal, was pretty cool. 

And what is it with David Childress?  He’s not said, “Extra Terrestrials!” at the end of a sound byte yet!  He’s not even said it at all! 

And the bumpers with Giorgio Tsoukalos is going to inspire a hair fashion phenom, we can just feel it.

It’s about an hour until the new 2012 Ancient Aliens season begins on H2 and the show is about 2012 and the Mayan “predictions.”

We have a feeling going in to this new series that this will be an hour of great exaggerations of fact and the taking of liberties with editorial license.

Premise for a Young Adult Drinking Game

For instance, every time author David Childress is on and finishes a soundbyte that ends with the words, “Extra terrestrials,” then everyone in the room should have to take a drink.

Every time the announcer says the words, “ancient astronaut theorists,” then everyone in the room should have to take a drink.

Every time Giorgio A. Tsoukalos @Tsoukalos  appears needing to do something about that tan and his hair, well, you know.


There are plenty of good sources to counter the nonsense that’s being stirred up about 2012 and what the Mayans did or did not suggest might happen this December 21, 2102.

One learned professor who has spent his career studying the Mayans, Dr. Mark Van Stone, and who we’ve followed says that on that day, it’s a Friday, he’s going to get up and go to the office and grade papers. 

The book sells for $8.95 electronically and we’ve been going through it.  It paints a much different picture than the one Tsoukalos, Childress et al are sharing through H2.

Okay, it’s almost time for the show.

Just for the fun of it, “EXTRA TERRESTRIALS!”  Okay, drink.  It’s going to take one or two or more to get through the show without an eye roll or more….

If you were a Mayan watching tonight’s show, our guess is you’d say, “Where in the world did they come up with that?!”
