L.M. Leteane: While Christians and Muslims continue to await the second coming of Jesus Christ—and the Baha’i on the other hand say that this event has already occurred in 1844 AD with the coming of Bahaullah—the Mayans and many other South Americans still await the return of their beloved god Quetzalcoatl. Quetzalcoatl, who is also the Egyptian Wisdom-god Tehuti (Thoth), had cryptically promised them that he would return on ‘the thirteenth instance of my magic number’. Thoth-Quetzalcoatl’s ‘magic number’ is actually 52. But since the Mayan calendar ends abruptly on its thirteenth Baktun, many thought that this was the ‘magic number’ he was referring to…a number he also used often.
William Miller who founded today's 7th Day Adventist back in the 1840's made predictions of the end and when the 1st ending didn't come
he recalculated thus the 2nd ending didn't come either. You cry, Wolf too many times and you get ignored.
It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much skepticism can make you narrow minded to extraordinary possibilities.
Where did you get information that there's 144.000 stone blocks in Great Pyramid of Giza? number is closer to 2,3 million blocks. If it would be 144.000, it wouldn't take 20 years to build such monument if you lay one block every 5 minutes...
What is a Baktun? It is a period of 144 000 days—a number or figure also associated not only with those to be saved at the ‘end of time’, but also with the number of blocks used in building the Great Pyramid of Giza.
