More about 2012: Science or Superstition
2009 may be underway, but it’s the year 2012 that has everyone talking.
Several weeks ago, History alerted its viewers that the world may come to an end on December 21, 2012. A two-hour special kicking off Armageddon Week claimed that the 16th Century soothsayer, Nostradamus, warned of apocalypse in 2012; and, if that’s not enough, then try the Egyptians, the Freemasons and — yes, the ancient civilization that actually did have something to say about 2012, the Maya. Throughout, there was ominous music and dramatic narration warning of global apocalypse. And it also happened to be the #1 show on cable that night, pulling in nearly 4 million viewers.
This follows a holiday movie schedule in which it was hard to avoid dramatic teaser ads for Roland Emmerich’s (The Day After Tomorrow, Independence Day) 2009 end-times disaster movie, 2012 (recently moved to November ’09).
Counterbalancing this apocalyptic hype comes 2012: Science or Superstition, a new documentary from The Disinformation Company that has launched exclusively on Apple’s iTunes store and is already # 1 on the bestselling documentaries chart. It arrived on DVD January 27, 2009.
In this thorough, fascinating documentary, leading researchers, writers and scientists in the field tell us exactly what this date means to them, why it’s important, and what we should expect. These award-winning authors, historians, scholars, professors, archaeologists, astronomers and journalists – many of whom offer varying and sometimes conflicting perspectives – include: Dr. Anthony F. Aveni, Robert Bauval (The Orion Mystery, The Egypt Code), Walter Cruttenden (The Great Year, an award-winning PBS doc narrated by James Earl Jones, Lost Star of Myth and Time), Benito Venegas Duran, Graham Hancock (Supernatural, Fingerprints of the Gods), John Major Jenkins (Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, Galactic Alignment), Lawrence E. Joseph (Apocalypse 2012), Jim Marrs (Above Top Secret, Rule By Secrecy), Alonso Mendez, Daniel Pinchbeck (2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl), Douglas Rushkoff, Dr. Alberto Villoldo (Shaman, Healer, Sage) and John Anthony West.
As Hollywood and the mainstream media distort and exploit the Mayan Calendar in their constant quest for ratings and box office success, more and more people are looking for information on what 2012 really means. 2012: Science or Superstition attempts to provide the answers.
