Turkish village is latest doomsday hotspot

A village in Turkey has become the latest location deemed to be a haven from the Mayan apocalypse.

With around 600 inhabitants, Sirince has seen an unexpected surge in visitors this winter thanks to the belief that it represents a safe haven in the event of a December 21st apocalypse. Located near the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, the village has enjoyed a tourism boom in recent weeks with over 60,000 people expected in the near future. Hotel owners are celebrating the increase in trade at a time of year when there is usually little interest in the region.

The significance of the village pertains to the belief that it is near to the spot where the Virgin Mary ascended to Heaven and that it therefore possesses a strong positive vibe. The interest is similar to that of the French mountain Pic de Bugarach which was closed to tourists following rumors that it would be the site of a rescue effort by an alien spacecraft on the eve of the apocalypse.

"A Turkish village has become the latest apocalypse hotspot, with believers of the Mayan calendar prediction that the world will end on December 21 flooding into the area."

I hear that there's a town called Morayfield in Queensland Australia that during the last really nasty flood was above water and dry despite being relatively close to sea-level (albeit inland from the sea), I take that as a sign that no matter what happens Morafield will survive it, therefore Morayfield should be an Apocalypse Hotspot too. You may have unlocked a huge mystery! This is so exciting!!! The theory is, the first migration of humans out of Africa went to Australia. Given what you said, what if the ice age and flood removed the evidence of those immigrants who turned White? You know,... [More]

I guess the Mayans thought the people in that Turkish Village wouldn't need a calendar after December 21. Since the Mayans were that stupid it's hard to understand why people think they would know the world was going to end Dec. 21. Perhaps you should know something about the Mayan before stating your opinion of them? The baktun is a multi-dimensional harmonic term and we are in the thirteenth cycle, Bakun 12. I hardly think this harmonic math system and the information contained in a matrix using Mayan math is stupid. Their calender, which is a blend of a sun calender and moon calender is ver... [More]

I hardly think this harmonic math system and the information contained in a matrix using Mayan math is stupid. Their calender, which is a blend of a sun calender and moon calender is very accurate. The consciousness expressed in their math and calender may not be so different from the symbolic expressions of the biblical Revelations. The uniformed can easily misunderstand this information, and I don't think we shoul... [More]

on 12/22/12 when we are still here, I wonder what the next date of doom will be? I am sick of this crap. I'm afraid these theories will be going on to eternity

and importantly, when on 21/12/2012 will the world end? because by the time it's the beginnig of the day in the US it's already all but ended here on Oz.

All these assumptions are WRONG. The reason is very simple: only the chosen SOULS will be saved, other SOULS will be exterminated Its that whole "Rapture" thing isn't it? That, coupled with the apparent alien rescue effort...wouldn't that mean that location does not matter? Now theres a topic of interest.

Wait a minute....hmmmm if 2012 is when the world ends... then that means the whole world right? so I guess Turkey isnt part of the world... or else it wouldn't matter...

Why do people participate in threads when they have no interest in the subject? It is not the end of the world. It is an astrological cycle and we have come to a time of transition. Our calender is based on the day Rome began. The Mayan calender is based on astronomy. Which might have greater scientific value? The New Age is a time of high tech and peace, and the end of tyranny. For sure we have the technology, For sure this science and technology has changed our consciousness, and part of this change is people around the world putting their lives on the line to have democracy. The pressure of... [More]

The location might matter if we have an interest anthropology and a possible alien encounter. This is a time when things blend, male and female blends, past and present blends, heaven and earth blend. We can say this is the resurrection, with geologist and archeologist and related sciences bring the past into the present. We are facing a consciousness change, and it behooves us to learn all we can, and be active parts o... [More]

Here is NASA's explanation of the Mayan calender and the mistaken notion that they expected the world to end. They did not expect the world to end.
