According To Mayan Calendar Theory Domesday Is On 21 June
The Mayan calendar is a system of three interlacing calendars containing information such as astronomical data and tide tables.It was used by several cultures in Central America and mostly famous in Maya Civilization.
The Maya Civilisation began some 4,000 years ago. This civilization built some of the most extraordinary structure of pyramids in South America before unexplainable abandoning happened in their great cities. The culture of Maya Civilization is still practiced by some people in Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, and parts of Mexico.
Maya Civilization used a very tricky system of calendars. There are monthly cycles of moon and annual cycles of sun, cycles of 13 days, 20 days, 260 days and many more. Each one of them is based on numbers 20 and 13. It was the base of their number system. Thirteen times 20 days makes 260 days (13 × 20 = 260 days), this is nine months – the period of human gestation.
Names of days in Maya Civilization were:
The Ancient Mayan Calendar are complex system of intertwined (interlock) cycles of time. This system use 20 calendars altogether. But three calendars were of prime importance to the Mayans – the Long Count, the Tzolkin (divine calendar) and the Haab (civil calendar). All of these cyclical calendars are used simultaneously.
‘Long count’, a long cycle of 5,126 years that start with the creation of the world. According to the Mayan calendar, the world began on August 11, 3114 BCE. But according to the Julian calendar, this date is September 6, 3114 BCE. The cycle ends on December 21, 2012 in the Gregorian calendar or June 21, 2020 as per the Julian Calendar. It is not a solar calendar that can be compared to the Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is a lunisolar calendar of 365 days and a leap year. The long count year is of 360 days.
The Tzolkin (‘the distribution of the days’) was a spiritual calendar called the Sacred Round. It consisted 260 days with 20 periods of 13 days. This calendar still used to plan religious ceremonies and to pay honour and tribute to particular Gods.
Haab told the Maya when they should plant crops and when to harvest.
“A typical Mayan date would read: 220.127.116.11.0 4 Ahau 8 Kumku, where 18.104.22.168.0 is the Long Count date, 4 Ahau is the Tzolkin date, and 8 Kumku is the Haab date,” according to timeanddate.com
How to Set the Date
A date in Mayan calendar is defined by its position in both the Tzolkin and the Haab calendars. This creates a total of 18,980 unique date combinations, which used to identify each day within a cycle lasting about 52 years. This period is called the Calendar Round.
In practice, the date combinations are defined by rotating two wheels in different directions. The smallest wheel consists 260 teeth with each one having the name of days of the Tzolkin. The larger wheel consists 365 teeth and has the name of each of positions of the Haab year. As both wheels rotate, the name of the Tzolkin day corresponds to each Haab position.
The date is additionally analysed by counting the number of days from the “creation date”, using the Long Count calendar. A Long Count date has the following format: Baktun, Katun,Tun,Uinal,Kin.
Kin = 1 Day.
Uinal = 20 kin = 20 days.
Tun = 18 uinal = 360 days.
Katun = 20 tun = 360 uinal = 7,200 days.
Baktun = 20 katun = 400 tun = 7,200 uinal = 144,000 days.
The kin, tun, and katun are numbered from zero to 19; the uinal are numbered from 0 to 17; and the baktun are numbered from 1 to 13. The Long Count has a cycle of 13 baktuns, which will be completed in 1.872.000 days (13 baktuns) after 0.0.0.0.0. This period equals to 5125.36 years and is referred to as the “Great Cycle” of the Long Count.
New conspiracy theory
A new conspiracy theory suggests that the actual doomsday can be soon as the world is slated to end on June 21, 2020.
This was claimed from the theory that the world was supposed to end in 2012 ,when the Mayan calendar finished. However, as per the New York Times, this theory might have been wrong since it is unproven that as per the Julian calendar, we are currently living in the year 2012 not in 2020.
This theory is based on a previously falsified theory which suggest that eight years were lost during the transition from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar.
In a tweet that has been deleted now, scientist Paolo Tagaloguin further fueled the theory and explained: “Following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012. The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days. For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years”.
December 21, 2012 = June 21, 2020. So, by Tagaloguin calculations, Earth will be destroyed on June 21, 2020.
Within hours, this theory leaked like wildfire on social media platforms and increased fear in people’s minds. Many people started to believe that the world will actually come to an end this year, because of disastrous events like coronavirus, storms, earthquakes, etc.
