There have been many end of times predictions over the years, but they fortunately failed to materialize.
But in the flurry of doomsday predictions, there have been similar dire warnings about the world coming to an end from various cultures, including Native Americans, the Chinese, Egyptians and even the Irish, the supposed Mayan prophecy seems to have held the most sway with believers.
The Mayan calendar is based on advanced astronomical knowledge, the ancient Mayans studied the stars and were extremely proficient mathematicians. We tend think of ancient cultures as being somewhat primitive, but modern science has yet to truly explain how the pyramids were built, how or why the Nazca lines were created, or how the ancients built great stone structures all over the world, like Stonehenge, Macchu Picchu, or the monoliths on Easter Island.
The Mayans predicted a final event that included a solar shift, a Venus transit and violent earthquakes.
The doomsday theories stem from a stone tablet discovered in the 1960s at the archaeological site of Tortuguero in the Gulf of Mexico state of Tabasco. The Tortuguero inscription makes prophetic reference to uncertain but possibly cataclysmic events to occur in 2012, in connection with the Mayan god of war and creation. The mystery of the message in the Tortuguero inscription is complicated by an illegible ending, though some have claimed the eroded text reads "He will descend from the sky."
The experts say rather than speak of the end of the world, the Mayans had a cyclical notion of historical time. Cyclical renewal of historical time, the experts say, was not associated with or essentially linked to apocalyptic events. Rather than the end of time itself, the inscription refers to the start of a new era.
If you are worried the world will end next year based on the Mayan calendar, relax: the end of time is still far off....probably!

The legend of Atlas, who was perceived from his God and father to take responsibility of Mother Earth, even against his own ideas, should teach us that every human has a piece of responsibility to Mother Earth and each needs to make a contribution to its conservation !
Atlas was the son of the first Ancient Greeks Gods, the Titans and is one of the most well known Titans for many reasons. One is the war that lasted for tens years when he got most of the Titans and many of the gods and goddesses to rebel against Zeus. All of the Titans were punished in some fashionable manner that Zeus thought would be rightful but he singled out Atlas and sentenced him to the most terrible punishment he could think
of. Atlas was to be the bearer of the Heaven for evermore.
Atlas was the one who turned the heavens upon their axis making the stars to revolve in a certain order and direction. Atlas continues to be a commonly used icon as a symbol of strength or stoic endurance. He is often shown kneeling on one knee while supporting an enormous globe on his back and shoulders.
