All the Fuss from One Reference… and Now, a Second

Apparently, one article tells us that all the 2012 hoopla is derived from a single inscription off one stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.

Wow! One inscription alone about the End-Date has created all this ruckus.

But now, they say there is a second one as well!

On the face of a brick at the nearby Comalcalco ruin is a second notice about the end date. Some scholars – like David Stuart of the University of Texas at Austin – think it is just mentioning the date of the end of any of the baktuns. He says the third glyph on the brick is to be read as the verb “huli” – and you’ll have to excuse me as my Maya is a little rusty – but this is supposed to translate as “he/she/it arrives” but without the “future tense” marker… thereby meaning it could be talking about the past, though they do not mention where a “past tense” marker was present.

Still, it is interesting that the original Tortuguero inscription mentions that the ending of the calendar involves the arrival of Bolon Yokte, a Mayan god associated with both war and creation.

War and creation… hmm, I don’t get much about a meteor hitting Earth, a black hole swallowing us up, or even a marvelous golden age arriving.

However, time and wear on the stone make the rest of the message practically unreadable, though some interpret to garbled bit as saying, “He will descend from the sky.”

Oh, I see: aliens!!
Maybe the Sitchin hypothesis was correct after all.

Of course, a meteor/comet would descend from the sky as well.

I guess we will just have to stay tuned and see what happens, huh?

As if we had a choice.
