5 Reasons the Mayan Calendar Doesn't Mean Doomsday

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., Dec 10, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Many people see the Mayan calendar as a sure sign that doomsday is near. In fact, they believe that it points to December 21st as being the Big Day. As some people scramble to understand the real meaning of the Mayan Calendar, others have already deciphered it and are ready to explain why, in fact, it does not point to doomsday.

"People have drawn a doomsday conclusion from the Mayan calendar, when there isn't one," explains Louix Dor Dempriey, a spiritual master who started the Louix Dor Dempriey Foundation and leads events. "The world is not going to come to an end on December 21st, and that's not what the Mayan calendar predicted to begin with." Here are 5 reasons the Mayan calendar does not mean that doomsday is near: -- The Mayans never actually said the world was going to end. That was a conclusion that others drew, based on looking at their calendar system, which was created some 2,300 years ago.

-- The approaching date marks the beginning of a new "era" for humanity, not the end of humanity.

-- Many religions, prophets, and mystics have pinpointed this "turning point" on planet Earth. They have been letting people know that it will be a turning point for humanity, rather than a doomsday.

-- There are no ostensible, physical signs to indicate the planet is ending. If there were, scientists would have discovered them and their findings would be making news headlines everywhere.

-- What would be the point of all life ending, especially on December 21st It would serve no purpose.

"Every so often, someone calls for a doomsday or some other major event that they state is going to happen," adds Dor Dempriey, "But when you stop to really look at what the Mayan elders, themselves, are saying, and consider all the evidence, this is one that does not pan out... Anyone remember Y2K " Dor Dempriey is holding a free live Internet Event entitled "2012 and Beyond." It will be held on December 12, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. To register for the event, log onto The video will be available for viewing on the site from December 12, 2012 until December 21, 2012.
