MIDDLE EASTERN MIGRATIONS
There has been great speculation over the last few years concerning the Mayan Calendar and its supposed ending December 21, 2012. My prime concern has always been its beginning date in the year 3114 BC. Who, at that time, could assemble such scientific knowledge with accuracies comparable to our present day atomic clock? The only answer to this question that would extricate science from the admission such knowledge and abilities did exist 5,200 years ago, was that the calendar was formulated in a more modern time and then back-dated to 3114 B.C. This “more modern time” must still be explainable as the Olmec, who supposedly developed the calendar, date to about 1500 BC. Maya origins date back to about 600 BC.
All calendars are related to crucial events that mark their genesis, and I’m assuming that someone did have the expertise to create such a time-keeping device in 3114BC. The important point is: what events around 5,200 years ago triggered such a need to begin a calendar? For us today, the important aspect of the 2012 date was that it marked the beginning of a new period/era. Time marches slowly to man’s clock, and the new, post-2012 period which we occupy is certainly exhibiting signs of a greater, more dramatic change to occur over the next few years.
Disrupted social conditions always create culture change, and the present migrations out of the Middle East represent a déjà vu of 5,200 years ago. The following is an excerpt and continuation of recorded events (see New Beginning) dating to that crucial beginning time in 3114 BC.

What happened? Some type of physical event caused existing world cultures to disintegrate around 3100 – 3000BC. Many great changes occurred around the globe which eventually led to the Sumerian and early Egyptian Dynasties, to the blossoming of Kingship in the Middle East, and to new cultures forming around the globe. The most intriguing, Mayan Calendar began 3114BC. The Maya 5,200 year period which ended in 2012 was the last of their five Great Years that made up a 26,000 year cycle of the Equinoctial Precession. It’s very difficult to ignore the listed items below and not link them to earth changing events of cosmic scale. Did the Mayan Calendar ending introduce a new beginning – a new 26,000 year period comprised of another five Great Years, and the beginning of a new Equinoctial cycle?
- 5,200 years ago a huge solar energy oscillation triggered climate change.
- Since its creation about 5m years ago, the Mediterranean Sea has experienced changing elevations and shorelines. Evidence from underwater archeological sites indicates a sudden flooding around 5200 years ago.
- Sudden freeze around the world. Catastrophic drought devastated the tropics around 5,200 years ago. At about the same time a monumental event occurred in the highlands of Peru. Ice core data indicates that solar output dropped drastically, and then surged over a short period. Lonnie Thompson, Ph.D., professor of geologic science at Ohio State University discovered flash-frozen, unfossilized wetland plants around the margins of the Quelccaya ice cap in Peru. They dated to 5,200 years ago.
- One of the most prominent periods of sudden climate collapse on a global scale dates to around 5,200 years ago when the Middle East turned to desert.
- Stonehenge 1, a celestial time clock, was constructed around 2800/3000 BC. Is it significant that it was completed/ modified c. 2100/2000 BC, for Stonehenge 11 and 111?
- The Hindu Kali yuga calendar began at midnight 18th February, 3102 BCE. Many Hindu consider this the day Krishna left earth to return to his abode.
- Major comet strike in Switzerland – some theorize this destroyed Sodom and Gomorra 3123 BC. Sudden freeze – blocked the sun for months.
- Sudden collapse of the 1st Dynasty of Egypt about 3200 BC. Ancient Egyptian historian, Manetho, mentions a “very great calamity” befell Egypt during the reign of Semerkhet, the penultimate (next-to-the-last) king of the First Dynasty.
- Arithmetic was developed in Sumer as early as 3200 BC. “By a miracle that I have found no one to interpret, the arithmetic that was developed in Sumer as early as c. 3200 B.C., whether by coincidence or intuitive induction, so matched the celestial order as to amount in itself to a revelation.” Joseph Campbell. The Masks of God. 196
- A Mormon belief is that the Jeredites (Sumerians) migrated to Central America in the 3rd millennium BC.
- The mutation of the Rh-Negative blood factor – considered a “mutation” of “unknown” origin. It happened in Europe about 25,000 – 35,000 years ago – the transition between Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon?
- The ancient Ainu people (Bear worshippers of northern Japan) are possibly connected to the desertification of the Sahara. They used leather sails on their boats (reindeer hides from Alaska?) as did the early Scots and Irish. They were possibly the avant garde of the Pacific migration.
- Around 3200 BC was the transition period between Tauris, the Bull (Enlil), and Aries, the Ram (Ra/Marduk). A fateful time when the Egyptian god Thoth was forced to leave Egypt.
- AND, most intriguing of the 5200 year date is the emergence, out of what Joseph Campbell described as a “little Sumerian mud garden,” of a new world order of mankind. The emergence of Sumer at almost precisely 3200 BCE could not have germinated from the mentality of simple peasants. This date has great significance for this civilization, but over half-a-century of new research, of which many discoveries have been clarified, has cast new light upon the subject of early Sumerian culture, the establishment of Kingship on earth, and the reverberating origins of an ancient calendar that ended up in the Western World.
- Newgrange a prehistoric monument in County Meath, Ireland - the Boyne River Valley, was constructed about 3200 B.C. - alligned to the winter solstice.
- At the ancient Mesopotamian city of Nineveh (Assyria) excavators found at a depth of 60 feet, no less than 13 alternate strata of mud and riverine sand, dating from 4,000 B.C. to 3,000 B.C.E.
Are we repeating a cycle of great migrations and social turmoil around the globe? Does history repeat itself? Do we shrug off these past events and declare them obsolete, or do we accept our destiny in ushering in another period of social chaos prior to a new beginning?
