The Mayan Calendar and the End of the World

 

The "World's coming to an end." Doomsday is imminent! Everything ends on December 21, 2012. "The Mayan calendar verifies this." Is this true? Are we in the last months of our existence? We will examine the history and sources of this ominous warning. Is its source divine or human?    

 

SPEAKER: Mark Welter, Ph.D. Instructor of history and world religions since 1959 at St. Cloud State, UW EauClaire, and University of Minnesota. Author of World Religions in Historical Perspective

    I was expecting more detail on the Mayan calendar and less about how it is being used for moneymaking on peoples fears.

    Excellent presentation showing a human history's inclination to accept fear motivated proclamations whether it's the Y2K, the Rapture, or the Mayan Calendar end of the world .... they all fail to produce their destructive results and life goes on.....but as long as their is money to be made preaching fear and damnation the idle threats will continue.
