I'll tell it to you real simple.
Imagine a Frisbee as our solar system circling around an oblong cluster of stars. This cluster (the Milky Way) also circles around a huge black hole. 12/21/2012 is the end of the Mayan calendar which also aligns us with the galactic equator on the galactic plane of Sagittarius A-star Black Hole (SGR A*).
The date of its renewal coincides with a winter solstice where the sun will align with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in 26,000 years. Others say that this galactic alignment will cause catastrophic natural disasters to our earth and as of now, there isn’t any scientific proof that it will cause any type of damage to earth.
Like many others I can’t help but wonder if anything will happen on, or around December 21, 2012. This date isn’t all just based on the Mayan calendar. There are many other ancient prophesies that count this date as important, like the “I Ching”, the Egyptian Phoenix Cycle, and not to mention the Hopi Indians. Each have interesting concepts of what will happen in 2012.
Do I think it’s the end of the world? Nah, that’s just media hype around a few individuals who haven’t researched the date. I seriously think it is just a reset. Like going from December 31, 2011, to January 1, 2012. The Mayan calendar just starts over.
Now the real tantalizing question is; how did the Mayan’s know we cross the center of the Milky Way galaxy on that exact date? Did someone tell them? If so, who?
Yet, I do think something major could happen. The Earths poles did flip at one time, and something was strong enough to force Venus to rotate the opposite direction than all the other planets in our system. Was it because we got too close to “Sagittarius A” that it messed with our polarity field? I hope not. Maybe being between Jupiter and the Sun, will keep us unflippable.
There is a belief that the Earth's magnetic field is weakening, which could precede a reversal of the north and south magnetic poles. Scientist say it takes a long time for a reversal to happen, but let’s face it, they really don’t know. They weren’t here when it happened.
Some debate whether there is a black hole or not. I believe there is, the universe is not random. We are circling around something big, and something powerful enough to keep our sun in its orbit.
Again, how did the Mayans know we were aligning with the center of our galaxy on 12/21/12? It can’t be dumb luck.
