2012 has been and gone but these false shepherds are still trying to round up the sheep.

“In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.”

After describing Calleman’s prophecies of nonsense I decided to go for Gregg Braden’s new book Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age. Apparently, Braden tries to merge fractal patterns with the view of a cyclic universe. This is an idea that partly steams from yet another prophet of nonsense, José Arguelles. Notice that all these prophets refer mainly to other “prophets” and their “interpretation” of the Maya calendar(s), not to established researchers that actually have an academic degree in Maya archaeology, epigraphy, iconography or ethnography. The main exception here is perhaps John Major Jenkins, another of Braden’s influences. Jenkins at least tries to base his galactic alignment nonsense on Mayanist research (particularly archaeoastronomical studies like Freidel, Schele and Parker’s “Maya Cosmos”). But it is still nonsense as there is no particular galactic alignment between the dark rift in the Milky Way and the winter solstice…
