New Myths about Ancient Mayas: Dr. John Hoopes, A History of the 2012 Phenomenon co-sponsored by the Lawrence Public Library
- Did ancient Mayas really predict the end of the world as we know it? Whats the truth about 2012? Whats come to be known as the 2012 phenomenon is an outpouring of claims that the end of the 13th baktun of the Long Count calendar on December 21, 2012 will be accompanied by cataclysmic earth changes and/or a metaphysical New Age transformation of consciousness. When embellished by both academic and non-academic scholars, these have resulted in an outpouring of popular culture that reveals much more about non-indigenous culture"and especially about our own hopes and fears"than it does about ancient Mayas.
