2012 END OF THE WORLD PREDICTIONS

2012 END OF THE WORLD PREDICTIONS, While downplaying Mayan theories that 2012 will be the end of the world as we know it, Mexico’s archeology institute admitted Thursday that it found another reference to the alleged 2012 apocalypse on a carved fragment found at a ruin site in southern Mexico.
Most experts had cited only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.
But the National Institute of Anthropology and History said in a statement that there is in fact another apparent reference to the date at the nearby Comalcalco ruin. The inscription is on the carved or molded face of a brick. Comalcalco is unusual among Mayan temples in that it was constructed of bricks.
Given the strength of Internet rumors about impending disaster in 2012, the Mexico’s Institute of Anthropology and History is organizing a special round table of 60 Mayan experts next week at the archaeological site of Palenque, in southern Mexico, to “dispel some of the doubts about the end of one era and the beginning of another, in the Mayan Long Count calendar.”
Arturo Méndez, a spokesman for the institute, said the fragment of inscription had been discovered years ago and has been subject to thorough study. It is not on display and is being kept in storage at the institute.
The “Comalcalco Brick,” as the second fragment is known, has been discussed by experts in some online forums. Many still doubt that it is a definite reference to Dec. 21, 2012 or Dec. 23, 2012, the dates cited by proponents of the theory as the possible end of the world.
