12/21/2012: The End? Not a Chance, Says Tulane Professor

mayaSome say the end of the Mayan calendar means “the end” for us.

But a local man who’s life’s work is to study ancient civilizations says “not so fast”.

Tulane director of the Middle American Research Institute, Marcello Canuto says December 21, 2012 is a day of great Mayan significance, but it is quite different from some fire and brimstone beliefs out there.

“It’s actually an anniversary reminding or recalling creation, not destruction,” said Canuto.

The professor spoke to WGNO News from Guatemala Thursday,  the nation where earlier this year he made headlines for finding a 1,300-year-old Mayan text that actually does refer to December 21, 2012, one of only two known findings that make mention of the infamous date.

However, Canuto says the reference on the artifact has to do with a failing king boasting to his about his past and future power.

The future of life on planet earth as we know it, says Canuto, is safe despite what the doom and gloomers say.

“Yes, you still have to do your Christmas shopping.”
