Saint Augustine, Florida (PRWEB) September 24, 2007
In exploring the areas of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala in 2006 and 2007, author L.A. Panchuk toured and documented the local Mayan folklore stories of old and recorded the great question of their Calendar and its meanings. What he discovered shocked him and created a document that he says now points to several different possibilities to the meaning of the Mayan Calendar.
Explorer and author of the novel titled The Devil's Magnet, L.A. Panchuk begins his report on the findings from his travels across Central America and the Maya stories involved in the great Calendar which is set to end on Dec. 21. 2012 and thus it is said to be the end of the world.
To explore this region Panchuk set out a number of questions to each Maya he met with, he documented the various stories handed down generation to generation to explore all the Maya and their folklore stories. In the end Mr. Panchuk would cover the calendar and the questions surrounding its mysteries by gaining a full insight into this rich history for a race that arrived at a date that we are now on a collision course.
Panchuk quickly points out that the rumors about the calendar and its meanings have various endings depending on which old story handed down you like to run with. His favorite was a large lightening bolt that is set to hit on the night in question. "The lightening," Panchuk admits, "was not in my original plans to build a mainstream feeling about this great race and came on a story that shocked me." Mr. Panchuk further reports he came up on a story about a large hair man like creature in the Maya folklore that was indeed another Big Foot story. Among the many stories, Larry Panchuk points to the calendar and its faithful day towards a change, or is it the end of the world. "Even we don't really know," he reports, "if they knew, or did they know" something more than what our scientists know today, but certainly the alignment of the planets on this night gives it an extra credibility that makes you think twice about what is intended to happen.
"I sat down with tour guides, average Maya people, elders of the Maya and all gave me their 'grandfather's story'. As I documented their belief and stories I would drop the question about the calendar on them, once they seemed comfortable in our discussions about old Maya folklore, it was always interesting to hear everything they had to tell me. What I got was something else, in one such case I was told about the ruins that we have never discovered. Apparently the Maya are to this day still keeping secrets from the general public about their great history in Central America. I was informed that some ruins may have been buried by the Maya people themselves to preserve their temples until their gods returned from the stars. In another issue, a Mayan informed me that the real temple where the great lightening bolt will hit on Dec. 21, 2012 has not been discovered and most Maya do not know its location." So many stories were documented, Mr. Panchuk says he's still working on them and trying to deal with the complicated question -- What is the truth about this date?
L.A. Panchuk is set to visit more areas in the future to continue to unearth the folklore, the ruin sites and the greatness that set the Mayans into the history of Central America.
