This page was finished 9 hours before the world "ends."

The Mayan calendar will end when it's only 6:11 a.m. here at Cape Canaveral on December 21, 2012. The matrix below is the best one that I’ve found or seen about DOOMSDAY, which is the axis term. THE PEOPLE FEARED is in the open text. PAGAN, MAYAN, and of particular interest, CHRISTIAN are all at the same absolute skip as DOOMSDAY. But the section of Torah that touches DOOMSDAY is from the aftermath of the Noachian Flood, NEITHER WILL I GATHER AGAIN TO SMITE ALL LIFE AS I HAVE DONE. So the message here to PAGAN, MAYAN, and CHRISTIAN folks who are fearful of this day is a simple one. Despite the evil that fills the news reports each night, God doesn't plan on killing us all. It is, of course, a good excuse to party; but for those who do, don't drink and drive lest you do end at least some lives including your own.

STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term (here DOOMSDAY). This is only the 29th lowest ELS of the term, but when I look for material encoded what I most want to see is a combination of a-priori  terms at the absolute skip of the axis term and highly meaningful material in the cross-print, especially when this material is a-priori. In this matrix there were three 5-letter a-priori terms at the absolute skip of DOOMSDAY. They were MAYAN, PAGAN, and CHRISTIAN.
       There is a fundamental difference between Jewish and Christian eschatology. In the Jewish religion in the End of Days (meaning, after pre-Messianic days) the Messiah comes and ends war on Earth permanently. It is, more than anything else, the fact that war did not end when the Nazarene ended his ministry that led Judaism to reject him as the Messiah. Under Christian ideology there is an Armageddon at the End of Times, with at least one third of mankind killed, curiously 144,000 of the House of Israel saved, and many true Christians saved via the Rapture when they are removed from Earth. The Book of Revelation is, of course, not part of the Jewish Bible which only includes the Tenach (called the Old Testament by Christianity). While the Torah certainly contains predictions and hints of horrible things that would happen to Jews if we rejected God's Law at the End of Days, it does not call for the end of the world (i.e., a DOOMSDAY). To the contrary, it does include words by God after the Great Flood that He would not destroy all life again. As such, this promise was an a-priori phrase to search for on this matrix. It is there touching DOOMSDAY. The matrix also includes an open text phrase AND THE MEN FEARED which can also be translated as AND THE PEOPLE FEARED; however this phrase was only found a-posteriori, although I was thinking about fear. To be conservative, I left the the fear remark off the spreadsheet. Odds against having MAYAN, PAGAN, and CHRISTIAN at special case skips (+/- 1 or the absolute skip of DOOMSDAY) and the promise by God to not destroy our world again were about 3,333,768 to 1. This is enormously significant, especially because it speaks to the insane belief that God wants to destroy our world again, and soon. It is rare to find a matrix that speaks to the heart of Jewish and Christian eschatology, but this matrix does so in an important fashion. As is shown to  the right of the matrix with a Christian lady holding flyers about the return of the Nazarene on May 21, 2011, there have been many false prophecies issued about such a return date and end of the world just during my lifetime. The year 2000 was believed by many to be such a date.
       As December 21, 2012 comes and goes with most of us still here, I ask my readers (Christians and, sadly, some errant Jews who have associated themselves with a film project about the Mayan end of the world date) to reflect upon the fact that the attempt to merge Judeo-Christian ideology with pagan doctrine is ill-advised. This is true even if it looks like a way to make money via Hollywood, which always seeks profit by portraying mass destruction, or if it looks like a way to call attention to positive aspects of Torah. 

Goofballs are everywhere. Al-Jazeera reports on sales of survival pods for tsunamis on December 21, 2012 that are expected by lunatics.

Recently I published an article attacking the bias of the U.S. press, lamenting the loss of reporters the likes of Walter Cronkite. Often I cite the Jerusalem Post or HaAretz, but unfortunately they are often overly liberal. Over the past year or two I have often gained insight into world events from a surprising source – Al-Jazeera. It may be an Arab news agency, but they seem to have a remarkable ability to actually report the news. The excerpt shown above from their story about the Mayan doomsday predictions is followed by quite an amazing statistic.  Not just 20% of Chinese were worrying about 12/21/2012, but 22% of Americans and Turks are also concerned. In the U.S. some school districts are cancelling classes in light of the fear that there may be violence associated with the day.

WHO IS TO BLAME? There'l-Jazeera tried to clear this up with its article (their text in dark blue) by stating:


       …the Mayan calendar has been misinterpreted. Just like our calendars expire at the end of the year, so too does the Maya's long clock, they say. It doesn't mean the end of time, it simply means the beginning of a new time cycle.

       Believers of this theory suggest the end of the Mayan calendar will usher in a planetary shift towards universal compassion and world peace. Note: we have a name for such an era in Judaism. It’s called the Messianic Age, and it has nothing to do with the end of the world. Thank you Al-Jazeera, although I don’t see any signs that this will actually happen on 12/21/2012.

         An ancient mural was found in Guatemala earlier this year that disputes the theory that the Mayans foresaw Armageddon on Friday.

       "It's important to understand that the ancient Maya predicted the world would continue," lead excavator William Saturno said. "They didn't predict the end of the world. There would be cycles, new beginnings - but never endings … We keep looking for endings. It's an entirely different mind-set."


       We could blame Hollywood. If your haven't seen the blockbuster film 2012, then check out the trailer here: I also think that we really need to get violent video games under control. But for my money, the problem stems largely from the canonization of the Book of Revelation. Its acceptance into the New Testament was somewhat slow and lacking in ancient enthusiasm. This is in part due to the difficulty of interpreting what is supposed to be "sealed" (Revelation 5:1-4). Its symbolism does draw heavily from the Tenach, but this doesn't guarantee its legitimacy (although, as an Orthodox Jew, I must remind my readers than none of the New Testament is accepted by Judaism). For a lot of people, having a Bible that starts with almost everybody getting killed in the Great Flood, and ending with the likes of Armageddon, doesn't lead to a feeling of safety. We also have threats in the Jewish Bible. One of them is found at the end of the Book of Malachi, but when a book ends on a negative note, we go back and reprint the previous verse which isn't negative (or, as negative). This Malachi ends as follows in a Jewish translation:

23 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord.


24 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers; Lest I come and smite the land with utter destruction.


Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord.


For better or worse I find the need to state the personal irony in Malachi's words. When I had my bar mitzvah in 1960, the above verses were the last part of the HafTarah that I chanted to our congregation. They foreshadowed the end of my book about an interfaith custody battle that I fought for my older son. I won the battle, changing the doctrine of the largest Church on Earth when I got them to annul his baptism in 1984; but although my son grew up to be an Orthodox rabbi, I lost the war and, for now at least, I end the Epilogue of his story with the same words above. So, should the world indeed end at 6:11 on December 21, 2012, like so many parents who have been estranged from their children, perhaps some of the blame is mine. But if the world goes on, as I suspect it will; then perhaps my son and all his children will one day contact me before my own personal world does end, so I can amend the end of our saga with something cheerier from the earlier part of his story, which starts HERE. Meawhile, may you all have a safe and peaceful December 21st, and may we all soon enjoy the coming of the True Messiah who will end war and all similar forms of insanity before Major Kong get us all. Don't miss the closing music. We'll meet again.
