The Mayan Calendar and the Sun
The Maya describe each era ending with a different "elemental" causing the destruction - fire, flood, or wind. All these could be caused by a giant solar flare.
It might just be coincidence, but the Mayan calendar was drawn up in such a way that it ends completely in 2012.
We have few surviving relics of the Mayans, but there are many impressive stone constructions in South America, and these suggest that there was some relationship with the Egyptian cultures in ancient times. There are reed boats being used in South America today that look like those of ancient Egypt.
The main details of the Mayan calendar were worked out nearly a hundred years ago. They believed that human history has distinct epochs (or "suns") of 3,000 - 5,000 years, after which there is a catastrophic event that completely ends all existing civilisations.
According to the Mayans the present era began 13th August 3114 BC and ends on 21st December 2012 AD.
The Mayan start date of our era is similar to the start date for the Egyptian civilisation, according to modern archaeologists.
The Sun and the Maya
Maurice Cotterell presents a theory, in an interesting book containing details of the Mayan system; (The Mayan Prophecies by Adrian G. Gilbert and Maurice M. Cotterell), as to the nature of the Mayan forecast. I did not give it much credence originally, but some new scientific research may provide some support for it and the Sun does seem to be behaving oddly in the past few years.
Prior to his South American researches, Maurice had been interested in the effects of the Sun's magnetic field on the Earth. The Sun has a complex quadripole magnetic field and it also rotates significantly faster at the equator than at the poles. The material in the Sun behaves as an electrically conducting liquid, constrained by gravity and magnetism but stirred by rotation and convection.
Maurice modelled this mathematically and found that the configuration of the field should vary in a cyclical way with a predictable period. One of the shorter cycles within this was 11.4 years, only a few months longer than the observed 11.1-year sunspot cycle.
Sunspots are like giant twisters that are relatively cooler in the centre. We see a sunspot when it is aligned so that we look down its centre; this peaks every eleven years because they are aligned magnetically. At the sunspot maximum, the fields align the sunspots vertically so they become visible, one pole uppermost on one cycle and the other pole uppermost during the next peak, eleven years later.
This much is known to science from observation, but Maurice claims he can derive it mathematically. The Mayan Prophecies book does not include the actual mathematics, however, so it is not possible for me to judge its validity.
When Maurice came to study the Mayan calendar he noticed that there was a great similarity between the time cycles predicted for solar magnetism and the cycles inherent to the Mayan calendar system. In his theory the Sun's magnetic field reverses at the end of a complete cycle, after 1,366,040 days. In the Mayan calendar, a complete cycle of time is 1,366,560 days.
Stars like the Sun can suddenly become much brighter
The magazine New Scientist, 9 Jan 99, carried an article covering a meeting of the American Astronomical Society. A team of astronomers studying Sun-like stars discovered that most of them seem to produce a superflare about once a century.
They studied observational records and found that stars similar to the Sun occasionally become as much as ten times brighter, for periods of hours or days. The astronomers are reported to be baffled as to why the Sun is so stable. Perhaps it does flare, but only every five thousand years, when the magnetic field reverses; causing so much destruction that no eye witness accounts have survived.
Interestingly, every eleven years, at the peak of the sunspot cycle, Coronal Mass Ejections occur. During these events material from the Sun is ejected into space. The last one caused a lengthy power blackout in Quebec, Canada, beginning 31st March 1989, after magnetic disturbances caused severe voltage fluctuations.
The next such event is predicted for the year 2012. (see cover-story 'Bolts of Fire,' New Scientist magazine 27th Feb 99). Normally these events provide spectacular displays of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis), but are not bright compared to the Sun.
Since I first wrote this page in 1999 the Sun has been unusually active. Since the year 2000 maximum there have been frequent large flares and far more sunspots than usual in what should be the quiet period.
Intense sun cycle likely
Sun's next 11-year cycle could be 50 pct stronger
Book of Enoch - The Second End is predicted to be an end of fire (the first was the flood). 91.9 And all the idols of the nations will be given up, their towers will be burnt in fire, and they will remove them from the whole Earth. And they will be thrown down into the Judgement of Fire, and will be destroyed in anger, and in the severe judgement that is forever.
102.1 And in those days, if He brings a fierce fire upon you, where will you flee, and where will you be safe?
Bible2 Peter 3:6-7 "through which the world at that time was utterly ruined, being deluged with water.7] But the present heavens and Earth by His Word are being stored up for fire, kept for the day of judgment and ruin of impious men."
Isaiah 30:25-27 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.  Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: ..."
Revelation 8:5-7 an angel throws burning incense onto the Earth.Revelation 16:8-9 "And they fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given to it to burn men with fire."9] And men were burned with great heat; and the blasphemed the name of God Who has the authority over these plagues; and they did not repent to give Him glory."

In another form, on 21st December 2012, The Sun Will Break Into Small Rocks and It Will Fall On The Earth. This was predicted by the Mayan Calendar. It begins from 13th August 3114 BC and ends on 21st December 2012 AD.
