I didn't really know where to put this.

But anyway, there is group called the Mayan Elders National Council that have had some sort of political influence in Guatemala. They claim to be direct descendants to the Mayan tribes and know all of their vast "secret knowledge". They go on the tiicket that 2012 will be a time of great spiritual change and all that jazz. Well someone kept showing me these articles about them going on journeys with crystal skulls to activiate "spiritual gates" before the calender ends. Basically something like this:

"President of the Mayan Council of Elders, have announced their plans to lead a group of Mayan Elders on a ceremonial pilgrimage that will carry the Thirteen Crystal Skulls from one coast of the United States to the other. The journey will begin in Manhattan on the 27th of October, 2011; it will culminate in Los Angeles on November 11th, 2011.
On 11:11:11, another group of thirteen Elders will arrive in LA from the Mayaland to come together in a Gateway Event that will be highlighted by the performance of the Mayan Crystal Skull Ceremony. The Elders, whose traditions have always been kept within their inner circle, have been instructed to perform all of their ceremonies in public from this point on; for this reason, the Ceremony of the Thirteen Crystal Skulls, a ceremony that was last performed 26,000 years ago, will be open to the general public."

More articles can be found all over the Internet:

Are these people actual decendants of Mayans? I thought the Mayans said the calender was just that, a calander . But these people are going by the New Age route. Unfortunatly my knowledge of Mayan history is limited so I would not know what groups are actually Mayans.

Maybe, there's quite a lot of people with Mayan ancestry. But I'm curious what difference you think that makes? I have relatives that have some very odd notions. It's the evidence that matters, not a person's ancestry.

The evidence shows a calendar. New Age stuff is essentially religion - belief based arguments, not evidence based. This isn't really the board to discuss religion.

The Mayans were noted traders, it looks like they still have a ton of stuff to sell. 2012plc. Gah!

As I noted in another thread, the Guatemalan tourist bureau is pushing 2012 as "A New Beginning". This is probably as much a part of that ad campaign as anything.
