“I knew it. HiScrivener is the man. But um, he forgot the name of Jesus?!”

Nah! But if I was a Mayan Indian PR specialist, I would have bruised my temporal lobe trying to remember his name.

You see, back in 10 B.C. resting off the Yucatan peninsula’s balmy shores, the Mayan civilization has this nifty calendar that’s been in the news recently (courtesy ABC News).

Long, fun, historic and subtitled story – short. The world is on schedule to end in the year 2012 when the Mayan god, Q-u-e-t-z-a-l-c-o-a-t-l comes back on a gold some such in a blaze of glory. This half-bird, half-snake will slither back to earth and the ‘Age of Transition’ will begin during the Winter Solstice.

Look, we’ll be here a while until 2012 and by then, I’ll figure out how to say that half-breed mammal’s name. We covered Buffalo Bill faithfully, so Mr. “In need of a neuter” will be no exception. Stay tuned, eschatology fans.

UPDATE: It just got much better, creepier and um, dumber too.

    Actually, although the Mayan calender does “rebirth”(not end) in 2012. Quetzalcoatl was the Aztec feathered serpent god. Montezuma believed Hernan Cortez was the coming of Quetzalcoatl due to the predictions of him coming the same year and being described as white and with a beard. The Mayan feathered serpent god was known as Kulkucan and is depicted all over Chichen Itza.
