Archaeology institute of Mexico has been disregarded the significance on theories that apocalypse would happen in 2012 which many believe was predicted by ancient Mayas, but it admitted the discovery of a second reference to the date on a carved fragment discovered in the ruin site of southern Mexico.
A stone tablet found in the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco was the only existing reference to the date in Mayan glyphs cited by most experts.
However, the National Institute of Anthropology and History acknowledged the additional reference to the 2012 apocalypse found at the nearby Comalcalco ruin. Comalcalco is not common among Mayan templates because the inscription is on the carved or molded face of a brick.
Spokesman for the institute Arturo Mendez said that the fragment of inscription had been found many years ago and kept in storage at the institute for further study.
The second fragment has been the subject in some online forums’ discussion and even paranormal experts have been participating. Many still do not believe that the Comalcalco Brick has to do on the date of the apocalypse.
An expert in Mayan epigraphy at the University of Texas at Austin David Stuart said the idea that the second fragment is another reference to the date is not convincing. He explained that it is a Calendar Round that was inscribed on the brick. He said that the brick has a combination of a day and month that will repeat every 52 years.
Even though the brick does coincide with the end of the 13th Baktun, Stuart said that the date found on the brick could also correspond to the same dates in the past.
