Now previously, I -like you, I suspect- had dismissed this as rubbish, merely the end of time from the perspective of some long dead and largely forgotten Central American shamen.
Lately though, I've been wondering if there might be more to it than it first appears -bear with me, I haven't gone mad- the terrible earthquakes and resultant tsunami which have just devastated a large tract of Japan is just the latest in a seires of terrible natural disasters. Just off the top of my head I can name terrible floods in Bangladesh, Australia, Peru and Brazil. Earthquakes in Chile, New Zealand, China and Haiti. Massive tsunami in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean. Volcanos erupting in Iceland and the Phillippines. I'm bound to have missed some or forgotten a few, but my point is I can never remember so many disasters in such a short time span. Is something going on, are we building up to a major cataclysm or is it just coincidence?
I think I might be changing my mind.
Did they get it right?
