|The Mayans employed three calendars, all organised as hierarchies of cycles of days of various lengths. The Long Count was the principal calendar for historical purposes, the Haab was used as the civil calendar, while the Tzolkin was the religious calendar. All of the Mayan calendars are based on serial counting of days without means for synchronising the calendar to the Sun or Moon, although the Long Count and Haab calendars contain cycles of 360 and 365 days, respectively, which are roughly comparable to the solar year. Based purely on counting days, the Long Count more closely resembles the Julian Day system and contemporary computer representations of date and time than other calendars devised in antiquity. Also distinctly modern in appearance is that days and cycles count from zero, not one as in most other calendars, which simplifies the computation of dates, and that numbers as opposed to names were used for all of the cycles.|

It is a ‘calendar converter’.
Enter the Gregorian date of Dec. 21 / 2012, then you must scroll down the page to the section on the Maya to see the new date converted to the Maya notation, once Gregorian Time has been entered.
The notation used is 188.8.131.52.0.
Maybe that is why we fear 13 in the West?
But wait the Maya lived in the West and had a reverence for the number 13…but we the conquerors who wrote the HIStory do not build skyscrapers with a 13th floor…hmm
The answer to this paradox lay, covered with Christian Lies in the Valley of Mexico…
|Dates in the Long Count calendar are written, by convention, as:baktun . katun . tun . uinal . kin…and thus resemble present-day Internet IP addresses!|
And if you want to further understand why the Mayan Calendar started with ZERO and not ONE read this post.
It is all part of a sacred design involving SOUND…
ENERGY = GOD
Thus the primordial Law of Thermodynamics says…
God can be neither created or destroyed, he can only be transformed into other forms of God. However there is a penalty for making vain graven images and it is called Entropy.
