Comalcalco Brick - Says World Ends at Dec 21, 2012 Because no Space to continue

· Posted in

The 'Comalcalco Brick' [right], is the second fragment known to reference to Dec. 21, 2012 or Dec. 23, 2012.

The date inscribed on the brick is a 'Calendar Round', a combination of a day and month position that will repeats every 52 years. The brick date does coincide with the end of the 13th Baktun; Baktuns were roughly 394-year periods and 13 was a significant, sacred number for the Mayas. The Mayan Long Count calendar begins in 3114 B.C., and the 13th Baktun ends around Dec. 21, 2012.

The third glyph on the brick seems to read as the verb huli, "he/she/it arrives."

Both inscriptions the Tortuguero tablet and the Comalcalco brick -- were probably carved about 1,300 years ago and both are cryptic in some ways.

The Tortuguero inscription describes something that is supposed to occur in 2012 involving Bolon Yokte, a mysterious Mayan god associated with both war and creation. However, erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible, though some read the last eroded glyphs as perhaps saying, "He will descend from the sky."
