Countdown to doomsday. Stonehenge Winter Solstice 2012

Countdown To Doomsday 2012

Why would eclipses have been so important to the ancient people of Stonehenge? Perhaps they considered the darkening of the Sun or the Moon a fearsome event -- a celestial omen of doom or disaster. Many cultures have interpreted eclipses this way. But the sophistication of the astronomy of Stonehenge suggests that the builders had something different in mind. Their understanding of the solar and lunar cycles must have led to a high regard for the cosmic order.

For most parts of the year, the sunrise can't even be seen from the center of the monument. But on the longest day of the year, the June 21st summer solstice, the rising sun appears behind the Heel Stone, creating the illusion that it is balancing on the stone. The Heel Stone sits along the Avenue, that extends from the northeast corner of the main monument. The rising sun creeps up the length of the rock, creating a shadow that extends deep into the heart of five pairs of stone trilithons - two pillar stones with one laid across the top in the shape of a horseshoe that opens up towards the rising sun.
Just as the Sun clears the horizon, it appears to hover momentarily on the tip of the Heel Stone. A few days later, on midsummer's day, the sun will appear once again, but this time, it will begin to move to the right of the heel stone. The countdown to doomsday has begun. The same phenomenon happens again during the winter solstice, only it's in the opposite direction and at sunset.

In just 2 years (2012) due to the wobble of the earth on its axis and certain other important alignments, the giant Heelstone will no longer cast its shadow within the circle of stones. It will mean that time has run out.

Here is another video that was recently sent to me by a reader. I am posting it as is and leaving his comments below for you to read before you view this Mayan Calendar doomsday Video but I will say that I think his statement at the opening that this is a Definitive Doomsday link to Mayan prophecy (the Mayan Calendar, 2012 end of the world prophecy – that the world will end on December 21, 2012) is a little strong. nothing is definitive in this area in my opinion. Also The Mayan Calendar ending is a fact, Stonehenge is fact (it exists) even UFO's are a fact (The fact is that UFO's are sited every year. We don't know if they are extra terrestrials or not but they are by definition unidentified flying objects) But Sumerians are someones theory just as planet x is. Not saying they are good or bad theories or ideas. just pointing out the mixing of fact and non fact in this piece

Here is his write up on the video:

Definitive Doomsday link to Mayan prophecy found during expedition to date some of the Stonehenge carvings using Carbon Dating. Some visible to the naked eye and some very worn, requiring laser scanning to enhance their images. The Mayan calander, the Sumerians, and Stonehenge, among others, all predict the End of Days, or Doomsday on December 21, 2021. They all date back to a specific point in time. Stonehenge has been dated back to having been built 3100 BC, The Mayan Calander has been dated back to 3100 BC, and the Sumerian written language has been dated as first appearing in the year 3100 BC. Now all three support the end on December 21, 2012

December 21, 2012 represents the date of the end of the original use of Stonehenge as a timing device. The exact date of the last Winter solstice that will reflect light into stonehenge. One more piece to the doomsday puzzle has been presented with scientific based evidence. Whether the world is doomed to come to an end or not, I do not have the answer, but one thing is for certain, something is going to happen.

The Stonehenge connection to the Maya Civilization and Sumerians is too strong to ignore. Stonehenge is a sophisticated astronomical observatory, which can predict with pinpoint accuracy, the alignments of the stars as well as solar and lunar eclipses. The recent archeological findings of Sumerian numerals carved into the stones and Radio Carbon dated to 3100 BC are a definitive link to both the Sumerians as well as the Mayans.

Maya Civilization was involved in research that predicted a return date of Nibiru passing Earth coinciding with the Winter Solstice of 2012; specifically at 11.11 UT, 21st December 21, 2012

The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform tablets and writings dating 5,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing", and it's cuneiform sign was often a cross, or various winged disc. Some authors believe that the observations of ancient astronomers provide proof that Nibiru is an actual planet or brown dwarf in our solar system. These claims are for the most part dismissed as fringe science or pseudoscience by the mainstream scientific communities of archaeology and astronomy. According to theories of Sumerian cosmology, Nibiru was the twelfth member in the solar system family of planets (which includes 10 planets, the Sun, and the Moon). It was the home of a technologically advanced human-like alien race, the Anunnaki of Sumerian myth who survived and later came to Earth, subsequently genetically engineered our species. Their travelling to earth was the result of their failing atmosphere.

  1. Stonehenge faces the midwinter sunset...

  2. "the giant Heelstone will no longer cast its shadow within the circle of stones"
    How does that work then? In reality, it takes about 2,000 years for the Sun's rising position to change by 1 sun-diameter. Any planetarium software will demonstrate this.

  3. "In just 2 years (2012) due to the wobble of the earth on its axis and certain other important alignments, the giant Heelstone will no longer cast its shadow within the circle of stones. It will mean that time has run out."

    Don't be silly. The Stonehenge is not a doomsday clock. And the axis doesn't "wobble".
    Please, use more science before posting.

  4. Ever heard of the obliquity of the ecliptic, this is the tilt of the earth's axis. And it changes between 22.1° and 24.5° with a period of 42000 years. So the earth does wobble, all be it very slowly. Some of this tilt is caused by the moon's changing orbital plane. But Stonehenge isn't a doomsday clock.
    If you want you can work it out yourself. Just look at how the sun's angle above the horizon varies with the seasons. The measured difference between the angles of the Sun above the horizon at noon on the longest and shortest days of the year gives twice the obliquity. Easy

  5. This crap isnt real, if you people cared so much about "spreading" the news, why dont you give out your crappy books for free.

  6. What's sad is people actually believe this. There is no end of the world in 2012! PLEASE......

  7. Everyone knows you cant carbon date stone so sounds like tosh to me.I would still like to visit the henge on the winter solstice though,is it going to be open as usual?

  8. OMG what a load of crap!

  9. The truth

    1. what a load of rollocks.factually if you watch the sun rise over the heal stone from within the circle you are a few feet out as the heal stone is one of what was a pair stood about ten feet apart and you watch it rise between them.anyway the whole place was cobbled back together with cranes and diggers and a great deal of guesswork by wiltshire council in the 1950's its all in the local paper arcives if you have a look

  10. The sun never rose over the Heelstone; it came up next to it (and still does.) There was once another stone near it on the Avenue.
    The main alignment is on the SETTING sun at Midwinter anyway, which would have shone through the Great Trilithon above the now-fallen altar stone.
    Anyway, I was up there at 11:11 and we're all still here! Why anyone would think there was a connection between Mayans and megalith builders is beyond me anyhow.

  11. Right, there were two stones.
    The last comment is wrong however.Atkinson, a professional archaeologist, excavated in the 50's and at the same time restored part of the western end. He only put back into place what had fallen in historical times (western trilithon 1797 and stone/lintel on same side 1901 in storm) where there were accurate drawings of how they had been before collapse.(They lay as they had fallen.)That is why the other fallen stones have remained so; there was no record of how they looked and many were broken. There is a famous drawing of 1747 which shows a Stonehenge exactly as you see it today.
