Dumbasses Swarm Mayan Temple Before 12/21/12

And now a new TMZ game ... SPOT THE DOPES!!!

Here we have a photo taken today at El Castillo in Mexico -- otherwise known as the Temple of Kukulkan, a Mayan structure built some time between the 9th and 12th centuries AD to honor the snake god Kukulkan.

Somewhere hidden in the photo are hundreds of idiots waiting to catch a glimpse of Kukulkan before the Mayan apocalypse, scheduled to occur tomorrow ... December 21st 2012. See if you can spot 'em!

The temple usually attracts a decent crowd during the solstice, but this is ridiculous.

On a more serious note: It was nice knowing all of you.

A few years ago when the world was "supposed" to end they said they read the calendar wrong. I wonder what the excuse will be this time? Maybe it was just caveman doodling.

The I Ching ends on the 21st but the Mayan long calendar of 400 years ends on the 23rd. It will be the thirteenth four hundred year cycle ending. Their calendar does go on after that, but the records are probably in a vatican vault. There is some record in Germany on some bark paper.


Basically, what the significance of the change is to the Mayans would be that they would want to associate a new cycle with a new king to make him look more special and powerful. The Mayans switched from focussing on kings to focussing on gods, then their whole society fell apart, even before the Spanish tried to take over.


There could be some spiritual changes coming. I think the significance will be the sheep being separated from the goats and the wheat from the chaff. Christ will protect his own while the rest will be left to fend for themselves among rampaging demons who know that their time is short before getting tossed in the lake of fire or locked in a prison.

TMZ is full of jacka**es. This particular temple is always drawing a crowd at the solstices because the way it's built causes the sun to cast a fascinating undulating serpent shadow running down the length of the entire stairs.

Why do people not realize that the Mayan calendar and our calendar are not the same? Leap year was added by Caesar long after the Mayan calendar was created, so the dates from our calendar and the Mayan calendar don't even match up.

These "dumbasses" I can handle. And as long as none of them belong to Heavens Gate or some other suicidal apocalyptic or mass murdering cult, I am quite happy for people to have their cuddle parties and space ship lookouts etc.

Look at the photo. These people brought sunhats and blankets. Does it really look like they actually think the world's going to end? They're hanging out in Mexico, you're commenting on them from your apartment.

I didn't believe the whole DECEMBER 21 thing in the first place because, in some COUNTRIES there already a day or 2 ahead of us. When the world will end it will just end. Only God knows, so enjoy each day that you live. Life is truly precious
