That may sound like a doomsday prophecy to some, and it is, but it just might be that we all had better prepare to get used to a much different kind of life than what we have known. That means Christians and sinners alike are going to ...
“The Mayan Doomsday Prophecy comes out of the fact that all the Mayan calendars end on that date. But what the Mayan mythology actually indicated was that it is the end of a cycle, the end of the long count and the beginning ofa new age ...

According to Mayan prophecy, the world will end December 21, 2012. It is a mystery how the Mayans came to this conclusion; it is also a mystery how to stop certain doom. But in all their wisdom, is there a possibility that the Mayans knew how to postpone the end of the world? If so, could there be an ancient text that reveals the answer archaeologists seek? Anthropologist Kate O'Hara thinks so. She and a team of fellow academics stumble upon a mysterious Mayan codex while investigating in the Yucatan Peninsula. Before the codex can be authenticated, however, it disappears, and the team begins to receive death threats from a menacing secret society. Luckily, Kate already made a copy of the manuscript, and so begins the lengthy process of translation, despite the terrible danger to their lives. The codex reveals the story of Ahkan, a Maya shaman, and her cousin and soul mate, Took Pac, a priest of the Maya Temple of Kul'kul'kan. Took Pac discovered a secret text written by the Mayan king and prophet, Chan Bahlam II. Kate believes the answer to the world's crisis may be found in the words of Chan Bahlam. Now she must try to translate the manuscript in time and live long enough to share the good news with others.
Should we continue on to Chichén Itzá, an ancient Mayan city central to the doomsday prophecy, or leave Mexico and pursue our lead to Peru? Maria's instinct was to travel to South America, believing that the Mayan calendar was but an ...

On 21 December 2012 the ancient Mayan calendar will complete its thirteenth cycle. Archaeologist Julius Gabriel dies certain of one fact: that, on this date, the human race will cease to exist. Mankind's salvation lies in a millennia-old code. Ancient legacies - from the pyramids of Mexico and Egypt to the Nazca desert drawings - are key to preventing the imminent global holocaust. Only Julius's son, Michael Gabriel, can decipher this puzzle. Michael is incapable of action, locked in an asylum where he has been wrongly incarcerated for the past eleven years. But now he has been assigned a new psychiatrist, Dominique Vazquez, upon whose actions the fate of the world will soon rest.
In what appeared to be a diversion, a spokesman for the PWL issued another doomsday prophecy for May 22, 2003. When that day came, it seemed as if very few people, even the media, were willing to follow the PWL's story.

Occasioned by reflections on the 50th anniversary of the publication of Festinger et al.'s When Prophecy Fails, this book examines social scientific prophecy research in the second half of the twentieth century, with particular attention to the question of the dynamics that inspired people to engage actively in such end-time activities.

Here you will find some of my favourite short stories that I have created and a little bit about the history behind all the stories and why I created them. From the jarring aggression of Love Changes everything, to the poignant the weary soldier and the fascinating what has happened to Amanda and Vision of life. It is quite a strong mix I must say anyway enough of my ramblings. I really hope that you enjoy these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them

This is a book by people who have had to make decisions which affect the environment in which we all live, decisions which sometimes affect the quality of life of millions. It is not an academic disquisition on how to approach decision-making. Most of the chapters are written by scientists who have had to take action or make recommendations on environmental matters in situations where the data are incomplete or choices hedged by factors beyond scientific resolution; the result is that they have had to resolve dilemmas about the proper way forward in the matter. My brief to the authors was to describe issues with which they had been personally concerned, rather than simply select from the vast range of envir- mental problems 'out there'. The only exception to this was Andrew Brennan (Chapter 1), who is a professional philosopher; I asked him to say something about the processes and errors indulged by environmental decision-makers. There is some overlap between chapters, but this is not extensive. I have made no attempt to eliminate it, because the aim has been to present personal points of view, not a systematic account of environmental problems. Similarly, there are important topics which are not covered. Indeed, a critic would complain that a book on environmental dilemmas which does not deal directly with the crucial divide between development and conservation is almost wholly irrelevant; from one point of view, it could be condemned as fiddling while Rome burns.
