Q. I appreciate your answers and devotion to research. I watched the History Channel’s presentation about 2012. Since the Mayan Calendar and it’s purported accuracy are used as a source for the ‘prophecy” about the end of the world, I wonder what this calendar says about the time period around 900 AD and the end of their society. I’m not trying to be argumentative but, this should have loomed pretty large on their list of events to watch out for.
A. It was not my intent to “legitimize” the Mayan calendar or any other secular prediction as a kind of prophecy equivalent to Scripture. I was only citing events that the secular world accepts as pointing to the nearness of what we see as the end times judgments preceding Lord’s return. As I said in the article, talk about the coming end of the world is not just for Christians any more.
