Once again I have found gold. I found a free 9 page report written by Carl Johan Calleman explaining why 2012 is another "error in time".

--- "          While many people advocating the December 21, 2012 date are simply jumping on a
bandwagon to create some visibility for themselves (and sell various products) I feel it is time
that they consider what kind of responsibility this implies also for other people. It is probably
not an accident that the first major Hollywood movie, surely planned to confuse people about
the Mayan calendar and tout the December 21, 2012 date is scheduled to be released in
November of 2009 as the sixth NIGHT begins. The ruling media will then use the December 21
2012 date to manipulate the truth and of course there are always some that are willing to play
along. It is quite easy to see in whose interest it is that the Mayan calendar in this way is
projected to a time in the future when all alignment with it will be too late.

All I can say is that I admire Hollywood. It sure knows how to profit from the imagination of people. Same kudos goes for the New Age writers who are chuckling to themselves about how easy it is to trick people, while walking all the way to the bank counting their dollars  smiley.

My brother went to the Mayan capital, toured the temples and from the way they were talking its not some new age gimick made up. Som of the thing ancient Mayans acheived (and are still there for proof) is amazing.

Now - the 2012 film depiciting mass destruction and death....

Hmm I wonder where people in the west get these negative ideas from. The real version of 2012 wont sell and those who dont know about it will watch this and think its what it is all about.

Well, according to the producers and directors of that 2012 movie... their original aim was to just make an Earth Disaster movie. 
They did their research and came across the 2012 mayan calendar thing and decided to incorporate it into their movie. That's all.

There's no future predictions or anything that come with this movie... it's just a movie, a story.  Smiley

It was done by Roland Emerich who also did the stinkbomb of a disaster film "Deep Impact". So there ya go. I think the equation is "ka-boom"+"A-list actor"="$$$". Or "pale-skin emo"+"vampire"+"no shirt"="$$$".

To be honest, this film being made disturbed me because of its impact on people's thought processes, and no movie before has ever disturbed me.

Well, I think we get these ideas from our own culture, clearly. We have a history of eschatological thinking that comes from the judgement day of the Abrahamic religions, which has caused people to dream up all sorts of "end of the world" scenarios. We have recently started committing some of these reveries to film. The 2012 film is more about this "end of the world" mythology that we personally have as a culture than about any particular date, the Mayans, etc.

Many of my family have been to the Mayan capital, and the people they talked to say that all of the 2012 propaganda is our modern culture interpreting things we don't understand  on the basis of abrahamic eschatology.  We tend to think that '2012' is a linear thing, when you get 'there' you get 'this', while their calendar is cyclic and circular (no beginning, no end, only resonance) and the changes have to do with consciousness and self-discovery, a spiritual event that is not time dependent.
I participate in some spanish speaking forums and the consensus that I have witnessed from Peruvians and Mexicans (the countries where their descendants live) is that no one knows anything or understands anything from this culture.  Our modern thinking is too different.

Yeah, lately I've been opting for the, "let's just wait and see" approach.  Smiley
