S. Douglas Woodward, 2010
Do megalithic monuments and books of ancient wisdom predict the date the world ends? Dozens of books have been published on the topic of 2012, mostly reflecting a "new age" perspective, proposing that their "pop" point of view is authoritative and reliable. This opinion is shaped by Mayan scholars, pseudo-archeologists, channelers, mediums, shamans, and alternative historians. Likewise, these pundits draw upon ancient sources which range from the Mayan calendar, the I Ching, The Kolbrin Bible, to Plato's Atlantis. The key to our future appears connected to the study of the past. However, upon a deeper look, today's pop apocalyptic writers continue an esoteric tradition thousands of years in the making. Is there a common thread running through the meaning of monuments, alien abductions, UFOs, crop circles, the New Age Movement, conspiracy theories, Freemasonry, and Pyramidology? Decoding Doomsday argues that by studying the claims of the 2012 enthusiasts in light of apocalyptic history, we can make sense of the current clamor. Furthermore, flying in the face of conventional wisdom, the author asserts that the expectation of the Apocalypse can actually be a healthy concern, essential to the position of authentic Christianity. Finally, he maintains Doomsday is already decoded. History's last day is plainly disclosed in the Bible.
