World likelier to 'change' than end on Dec 21 doomsday, say Mayans
While the whole world is talking about the Mayan Apocalypse, which is scheduled for Friday, real life Mayans say it may be more of a 'transformation' than an 'obliteration'.
The Mayan 'Long Count' calendar runs out on Friday, which New Age jibber jabberers have widely predicted means an Apocalypse.
Opinion is divided on whether the end will come via a planetary collision, a reversal of Earth's poles, or with zombies. Many people are banking on the zombies.
But Mayan elders say it is not so much a doomsday approaching as an Age-of-Aquarius-esque 'transformation,' the Herald Sun reported.
Mayan leader Grand Elder Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, otherwise known as 'Wandering Wolf', told the makers of the film 'Shift of Ages' that we are at a crossroads and we need to transition to unite humanity.
In an equally clear explanation, Mayan elder Don Carlos Barrios says people have not read the signs correctly and that on Dec 21, everything will change - there will be a "rebirth".
"Humanity will continue but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human," the paper quoted him as saying.
