4.2 – THE DOOMSDAY PROPHECIES (2.17.12)

THE END TIMES [3e]

Monument Number Six. It is on this stone tablet, on which are carved a series of ancient Mayan hieroglyphs which according to scholars ominously predict a cataclysmic event on December 21, 2012.

“This is a long monument that talks about the lifetime of a particular king. But at the end of it, it goes forward into the future, takes this big leap from the 600s AD up to 2012. It definitely says Four Ahau, Eight Konkin, arriving the 13th bak’tun or 400-year period. But then there are only three more glyphs and they are eroded and broken partially.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Center)

Some scholars believe that the eroded glyphs on Monument Six suggest Bolon Yokte a god similar to Kukulkan will return at the end of the Mayan calendar.

“The Mayan specialists can read it “will descend from heaven god Bolon Yokte.” Bolon Yokte was one of the Maya gods who was present with the creation of man. So, they say, “Will descend, god Bolon Yokte.” So some gods, some extraterrestrials, were expected to return. And definitely, some of the gods will return. There is absolutely no doubt.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“Who was this Bolon Yokte? According to the documents that have survived, and they’re only fragmentary, he was always described as someone with great powers, who had the capacity of flight and who had incredible knowledge about the Universe.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The God Bolon Yokte is not a very well understood god. Sometimes he’s associated with texts that talk about the beginning of creation back in 3114 BC. And we see him in some context that seemed to be connected with war.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Center)

“Bolon Yokte was also described as being very tall and very shiny, glowing. Is it possible that what we have here is a description of an Ancient Alien? And the answer is yes.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

But while there is much mystery surrounding the legend of Bolon Yokte, researchers say the ancient Maya believed this entity had visited their ancestors before  thousands of years in the past.

“There is another reference to Bolon Yokte at Palenque in Temple 14, where it is clearly stated that Bolon Yokte appeared on Earth over 900,000 years ago. Why would anyone in their right mind record a date that goes back over 900,000 years ago? Well, something happened. Something very significant. And according to the ancient texts, that is when Bolon Yokte descended to Earth from the sky.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Similar stories suggesting that the Maya were, in some way, connected to otherworldly beings can be found in an ancient Maya text known as the Chilam Balam a collection of oral histories passed down through the ages.

“The Chilam Balam books were written between the 16th and the 18th-centuries, when the Spanish conquerors were already there. First, the Spanish arrived. They found hundreds of Maya writings. They destroyed them all. But then some of the priests escaped and they start to write up their old knowledge. That’s the reason how the Chilam Balam books came to existence.”

 – Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“The name Chilam Balam is actually the name for a priesthood who were kind of the historians of communities in the Yucatan. But we have this collection of books that we call the Chilam Balam. These are the books in which we find this information about how the Maya believe that what’s happened before will happen again. In the opinion of the people that write the Chilam Balams, they believe them to be very accurate. The Chilam Balam talks about these 20-year periods. “In this 20-year period, you could see it was a bad time for us. We can expect negative things to befall us.” And of course, one of the most negative and bad-luck times they have is the arrival of the Spanish. And they point to that as, ‘See? Clearly in the cycles of time, we could almost predict that this calamity was bound to happen to us at this time.’”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Center)

In the Chilam Balam it states that the god Bolon Yokte will someday return and battle the deities of heaven in an epic war of good versus evil.

“Each age for the Mayans was clearly defined, and it was defined by the gods returning. And so what we have today, or in the near future, is the imminent arrival according to the Mayan tradition of these deities.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

This prediction of a final apocalyptic battle between good and evil as described in the Chilam Balam, can also be found in the Christian Bible’s Book of Revelation.

“It is interesting that if you look at the last book of the Bible, it talks about some great war in heaven between the Archangel Michael and the great dragon. Is there some last great war in heaven that occurs at this final age?”

– Sean-David Morton, Ph.D.
(Theologian / Radio Host, Strange Universe)

If the Maya prophecy about the return of Bolon Yokte is true, might there really be a so-called battle between good and evil? One that will result in the annihilation of all mankind? But how?
