Maya Myth Moment–Only 1 Percent Known

Maya Myth Moment–Only 1 Percent Known

In today’s update, Dr. Mark Van Stone talks about how little we actually know about the ancient Maya–only 1 percent, but most estimates, is all we’ve yet uncovered.  And yet the Internet, modern folk lore, New Age beliefs and all have rushed in like water in a pit to fill us the space of what we don’t know with what isn’t even fact.

2012: Science & Prophecy of the Ancient Maya now available for iPad at MVS2012.com.

And that goes to the problem associated with the whole 2012 Meme.  So little actually has survived the passage of time, and what has, reflects so little on the ending of the world tomorrow based on the assumption of the end of the Maya calendar. And it’s largely done without much fact at all, as we have worked to demonstrate over the past 30 days here on The Wonders Expedition.

We encourage you to keep studying the Maya after tomorrow’s calendar end.  They were a fascinating people.

In Dr. Van Stone’s book for iPad, 2012: Science & Prophecy of the Ancient Maya, you can continue to learn about who the real Maya were and help gain an understanding of how to read their writings, how to study their art and how to better know this amazing group of people who once reigned in Mesoamerica.

Please, come back to TheWondersExpedition.com. We’ve got some exciting adventures just around the corner now that we’ve all but finished this 2012 Meme. It’s time for some new adventures and we want to bring you along…..

In the meantime, please do check out our book for iPad we made with Dr. Van Stone by visiting MVS2012.com.

Maya Myth Moment–The Spiritual Transformation of Man

This is another version of New Age prophecy as tied to the Maya.  Again, it has nothing to do with the Maya.

Maya Myth Moment–New Age Consciousness 2012

Maya Myth Moment–New Age Consciousness 2012

Today’s Maya Myth Moment centers on the New Age consciousness expected to arrive globally on Dec. 21, 2012.

The Bliss Out–Peace on Earth.

Dr. Anthony Aveni, in Dr. Mark Van Stone’s 2012: Science & Prophecy of the Ancient Maya refers to it as a “bliss out.”

But the problem with putting much stock in the New Age teachings is they’ve only been around for about 30-40 years.  They can’t be traced back to the ancient Maya, and often, that’s the attempt that’s made.

Watch today’s video below.  After that, we’ve added a special bonus from Dr. Van Stone’s book for iPad–the video of Dr. John Hoopes from the University of Kansas, tracing the whole 2012 meme back to Christopher Columbus‘ discovery of the New World.

Want more information on this amazing subject?  Sign up for the remaining 29 installments of the Maya Myth Moment, or go to the iBookstore and get a copy of Dr. Van Stone’s amazing book.
