The Mayan Calendar - The World Will Not End Steep Uphill Climb to 2012: Messages from the Mayan Milieu ©- Copyright 2002 by Steven McFadden In early Autumn 2002, Carlos Barrios journeyed North from his home in Guatemala to the Eastern edge of the Four Corners. In Santa Fe, NM, at the tail of the Rocky Mountain spine, Mr. Barrios spoke in a knowledgeable manner about the Mayan tradition and the fabled Mayan calendars. The Mayan calendars are an object of intense interest for many thousands of people right now, because they focus upon the watershed date of Dec. 21, 2012. Everything changes by then, it is said. With a cultural heritage including thousands of pyramids and temples, and a calendar that has proven itself to be astronomically accurate over millions of years, the Maya tradition is widely considered to be a mystic key to the soul of Turtle Island (North America).

Maya mythology Maya mythology is part of Mesoamerican mythology and comprises all of the Maya tales in which personified forces of nature, deities, and the heroes interacting with these play the main roles.

The Son of Juno, he was the father of Romulus (Rome's founder). His earliest form was a god of the spring and agriculture, responsible for vegetation, fertility and cattle. His major festival was the Quinquartrus, five days of celebrations during the spring equinox, in both his and Minerva's honor. Mars soon evolved into a god of war, with many of his agricultural duties turned over to Ceres and Liber, although every May 29th festivals of the Ambarvalia celebrated him as an agricultural god, with a pig, ram and bull sacrificed to him.
Ancient Egypt Ancient Egypt was an ancient civilization of Northeastern Africa, concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River in what is now the modern country of Egypt. It is one of six civilizations globally to arise independently. Egyptian civilization coalesced around 3150 BC (according to conventional Egyptian chronology) with the political unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under the first pharaoh. The history of ancient Egypt occurred in a series of stable Kingdoms, separated by periods of relative instability known as Intermediate Periods: the Old Kingdom of the Early Bronze Age, the Middle Kingdom of the Middle Bronze Age and the New Kingdom of the Late Bronze Age.
Ancient Connections Between Egypt and Ireland Confirmed! Vatic Note: This fits in with the blog just previous to this one. This one got caught up in the deleted ones, or even when up, I could not get the summaries out that day, so its here again, simply because we are in the middle of a rabbit hole that this may be related to? We don't know, but it seem to fit here nicely. Its definitely another change of pace. Funny how you go down a rabbit hole and find a slew of rabbits, huh? lol This is another one I found while doing the work on Pegasus and the Antarctic, as well as the work we did on the Brits and their connection to the ME.
Ancient Egyptian creation myths The sun rises over the circular mound of creation as goddesses pour out the primeval waters around it Ancient Egyptian creation myths are the ancient Egyptian accounts of the creation of the world. The Pyramid Texts, tomb wall decorations and writings, dating back to the Old Kingdom (2780 – 2250 B.C.E) have given us most of our information regarding early Egyptian creation myths. These myths also form the earliest religious compilations in the world. The ancient Egyptians had many creator gods and associated legends. Thus the world or more specifically Egypt was created in diverse ways according to different parts of the country. Common elements Another common element of Egyptian cosmogonies is the familiar figure of the cosmic egg, a substitute for the primeval waters or the primeval mound.
Musings from the Chiefio 10 Commandments Movie Poster with Yul Brynner Original Image It just wouldn’t have been the same with a Redhead like, oh, Conan O’Brien playing the Pharaoh… but might have been more authentic. OK, I’m finding this out a bit late. Most of the articles have a date stamp of a year ago, some even older. So if you already know this, please forgive… but I didn’t know it… so it’s all new to me, and a bit “odd”… History of ancient Egypt The history of Ancient Egypt spans the period from the early predynastic settlements of the northern Nile Valley to the Roman conquest in 30 BC. The Pharaonic Period is dated from around 3200 BC, when Lower and Upper Egypt became a unified state, until the country fell under Greek rule in 332 BC.

Egypt's history is split into several different periods according to the ruling dynasty of each pharaoh.
Redheaded Pharaoh Ramesses II Pharaoh Ramesses II (of the 19th Dynasty), is generally considered to be the most powerful and influential King that ever reigned in Egypt. He is one of the few rulers who has earned the epithet "the Great". Subsequently, his racial origins are of extreme interest. In 1975, the Egyptian government allowed the French to take Ramesses' mummy to Paris for conservation work. Numerous other tests were performed, to determine Ramesses' precise racial affinities, largely because the Senegalese scholar Cheikh Anta Diop, was claiming at the time that Ramesses was black.
