Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation into Civilization’s End is a unique look into the Mayan prophecy that many say means the end of the world in 2012 from the perspectives of the Mayans, Russian scientists and the bible.
If you have read up on the beliefs of the Maya or seen any of the TV shows that have been centered around the year 2012, Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation into Civilization’s End delves into these. According to Mayan legend, there will be an earth changing event occurring in December of 2012. Many say it will be the end of mankind as we know it.
The date came from studies of astronomical data that was gathered by the Mayans as well as their very own calendar, which ends at this time.In this book, the author takes the information from the Mayan Prophecies and starts to really look into them, as well as the science of the planet and what it may be telling us about it’s future.
It is an interesting look at what many call a myth that not only looks at the Mayan legends, but also things like sunspots, changes in the earth’s magnetic field as well as things the other planets may be telling us about our solar system. Throughout the book you will also get to know the people who are passing on the prophecy, the Mayan shamans, and the Russian scientists who are studying them.
While I was very interested in the topic, there were some moments that were a little much for me. Instead of sticking to the science and prophecy he began to preach his own personal religious beliefs into the mix. That is something that I think readers can make their own conclusions about.
This book was narrated by Feodor Chin. He has a nice, clear easy to follow voice that was very easy to listen to and follow along with while listening to the text of the book.
