Mayan Calendar - 2012 - Solar Flares
“And there shall
be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth
distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's
hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are
coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke
“If you are a
believer, that is if you are a person who has recognized your inability to redeem
yourself by your own power and that has acknowledged that Jesus Christ is the
Son of God and that His death and resurrection made the only way for your
redemption and that has embraced it as the way, then you have nothing to fear
from the coming signs in the heavens. If you are not a believer, then you have
much greater things to concern yourself with than physical phenomena in the

Gomorrah in Genesis 18 and you will be at peace on that question.
he said, Oh, let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again only this once.
Suppose ten [righteous people] shall be found there. And [the Lord] said, I
will not destroy it for ten’s sake.” Gen 18:32 AMP
Will this earth
ever be destroyed? It will pass away, but not until the “day of judgment” has

fire. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the
first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” Rev 20:15-21:1 KJV
What is a solar flare?
Solar flares are noted by a large flash
of hot gases suddenly bursting from the surface of the sun. They are caused by
the same phenomena that gives us neon, fluorescent and LED illumination, which
is by the reconnecting of electrons to positive ions. Although
some would take exception to this generality, let all remember that no man has
seen an atom. No man has seen the image of an atom produced from light
reflecting off of an atom onto their retina, lens or no lens.
With sufficient excitation, or
input of energy, the electrons that balance the electrical state of all atoms
(matter) will fly off into the atmosphere leaving behind atoms that are now
positive ions, having lost their negative electrons that keep them in an
electrically balanced state. From these positive ions extends an electrostatic
field out into the atmosphere attracting electrons back home again to balance
the electrical state of the atom. Sometimes the electrons are pushed to an
outer orbit around the nucleus of the atom and when they pop back into their
lower orbit, they give off this excess of energy as a photon of light.
field exist between the positive and negative components of an atom. It is the
motion of these electrical charges that produce magnetic fields. Furthermore,
it is the motion of these charges when separated from this electrical balance
that produce electromagnetic fields.
recombination of electrons and protons take place near sunspots, areas of high
magnetic field strength, the resulting high release of energy from billions of
billions of electrons dropping back into a balanced state, the atomic particles
are “flared” out into space as a “solar wind”. This solar wind
takes several days to reach the earth. The Aurora Borealis (northern lights) is
the result of these solar winds reaching the outer layers of our atmosphere and
interacting electrically to give off photons of light. Most of this activity
is invisible to the human eye, we see only those releases of energy that
are in the visible light spectrum. The remainder of the energy is at
frequencies outside the visible light spectrum.
So, let us
consider solar storms and enjoy their beauty. Read this quote from the Baltimore
American Commercial Advertiser from September 3, 1859.
who happened to be out late on Thursday night had an opportunity of witnessing
another magnificent display of the auroral lights. The phenomenon was very
similar to the display on Sunday night, though at times the light was, if
possible, more brilliant, and the prismatic hues more varied and gorgeous. The
light appeared to cover the whole firmament, apparently like a luminous cloud,
through which the stars of the larger magnitude indistinctly shone. The light
was greater than that of the moon at its full, but had an indescribable
softness and delicacy that seemed to envelop everything upon which it rested.
Between 12 and 1 o'clock, when the display was at its full brilliancy, the
quiet streets of the city resting under this strange light, presented a
beautiful as well as singular appearance.”
How often do solar flares occur?
flares were first and recorded by Richard
Christopher Carrington and independently by Richard Hodgson in
1859. Scientist have been observing and recording the solar cycle since 1755.
Each cycle spans approximately 12 years During the solar cycle, the frequency
of occurrences of these flares varies from several per day to less than one per
solar cycle began on January 8th, 2008. This particular cycle, the
24th since 1755, has fallen well below predictions for solar
flare activity, 50% lower than expected. This cycle should peak during
May of 2013 with about 58 sunspots. This would make it the least active cycle
since solar cycle 6 (1810-1823).
predicting the peak of this cycle to be the second lowest since 1755, so
why all of the hype by the media. Several factors contributed to this erroneous
focus. It is likely that the foundation for this rumor began within the
community of new agers who look to everything but the Creator for answers to
their future. The current Mayan calendar ends in the year 2012. Place
this thought in the mind of a new ager who is long on imagination and short on
math and science. Add to this any casual mention of a peak of solar flares in
2013 followed by a recounting of the occurrence in 1859 and you have the end of
the world. Now set these fearful individuals in front of the a news report with
astrophysicist Michio Kaku, who for the security of his own career is taking
advantage of this early hype regarding the peak of this solar cycle to
prompt the government to set in motion the appropriate safe guards to protect
our electrical grid from any damage similar to that of 1859, and you have
Even if you
choose to disregard the scriptures, Susan Milbrath, curator of Latin American
Art and Archaeology stated that “We have no record or knowledge that the Maya
would think the world would come to an end” in 2012. Further, Sandra Noble, the
executive director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican
studies stated that, “For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make
it to the end of the whole cycle and to render December 21, 2012, as a doomsday
event or moment of cosmic shifting, is a complete fabrication and a chance for
a lot of people to cash in”.
credence to a connection with the Mayan calendar,
solar cycle peaks 18 months after the end of the Mayan calendar,
is one of the least active solar cycles in recorded history
the scientist who described the event of 1859 used public paranoia to promote
his own agenda to develop a program to institute safeguards against something
that may never happen.
“Carrington Event” or Solar Super Storm that occurred during the
solar cycle 10 in 1859 was the most powerful in recorded history. For more
information, use either of the underlined phrases in your search engine. It
does make interesting reading. I will discuss the effects of massive
electromagnetic pulses in a later article.
