Apocalypse Island As Seen in History Channel

WASHINGTON (GaeaTimes.com) — The Apocalypse has always been an interesting topic. History Channel airs an episode “Apocalypse Island” this January 4, 2010 at 1:00 am.

We came to know about the Apocalypse Island from the recent movie ‘2012′. According to the movie, a map shows the Apocalypse Island, located somewhere in China.

History Channel, an international satellite, and cable TV channel that broadcasts television shows relating to historical events and person, focus on this island to reveal the mysteries.

The show throws a question whether the island situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean holds the final clue of the Mayan’s apocalyptic predictions concerning 2012. One explorer has claimed to have discovered the answers that have eluded humans for centuries.

Jim Turner has found an artifact over 10 years ago and since then studied it and spent several years preparing for an expedition to prove that this is the place they foretold that gods would come to watch the final minutes of civilization.

Luckily, I only wasted five minutes listening to them talk about how wondrous and amazing the island was. Then they could not find the ’sandy beach’ from memory. I am pretty sure if i had the coordinates of the island then I could have found said beach from a satellite photo before I headed out into the open ocean and the ‘great unknown’. Of course that would have diminished the sense of drama and wonder that the less informed were supposed to feel. Shame on the History Channel for airing such tripe!

Im Mexican and have heard of this since i was a child but, with no end of the world scenarios.In 2005 my first daughter was born on 12-21-2005 exactly a month before she should have been born.Long story short she died on the day she was to be born.01-21-2006 The fact that she was born on 12-21 makes me feel very close to that date in a very special “AZTEC” way.I hate how they’ve turned a sacred point in time into a money making fear based propaganda.Im getting sick of the apocalyptic blindness and fear alot of people mix in with an ancient belief.It feels like people are in the dark ages or rather be.It gets harder when you have a 5 year old asking about why they have to die in 2012.The fact that the end of the Myan long count is very true but,they try and trick everyone with relating the mayan calendar and the gregorian one we use today.When there is no end to our present day calendar or perception of time.The truth is that in Mayan time we reset the timeline to year ZERO after 12-21-2012,we simply start over like a new year or day month or week and in this case a new epoch.Its easier to view it like a cirle.One thing i have told my son is a message from the Mayan prophet, Chalam-Balam himself!”Have no fear no one but,the devine cosmic father knows the end of our time.”

I have watched this special 3 times now. In the whole 2 hours less than a minute is video of the “Monument”. From what I saw (and I looked hard) it is a Big Rock behind Another Big Rock. Are more pictures available?

Completely agree, this show was a joke. After watching it I was mad at myself for wasting 2hrs for nothing. The stupid “monument” was nothing but a rock formation. They made sure to limit their time doing any real archeological work at the site because then they’d find the truth. I think the History Channel has jumped the shark-too many alien stories and made up apocalypse stories.

Is everyone STUPID? I watched this show and saw that the “artifact” is nothing more than an eroded column of volcanic rock. Does ANYONE turly believe that the end of the world is going to happen on 12-21-10? Keep on smoking that green weed, boys!

All of hulabaloo over nothing is amazing to me. There have been many different “predications” of the end of the world and, Hey….we are still here!

I am soory to say, I wasted two hours watching ‘Apocalypse Island’The whole thing was a hoax by Jim Turner. That Momument he kept referring to was nothing but a large chuck of rock.You should be ashamed of yourselves.I actually believe–you believed it!!!As you should know the Maya was noted for building sophisticated buildings ,tombs and prymids etc.,and you want to credit them with that chuck of rock…Shame on you for trying to make fools of the notable peoples of the period. and trying to put it over on us!!! I’ll never read or watch anything that your name is associated with…The only people that may go to see the events in 2012 are the people who live on the other side of the island..But as far as the Gods coming to that rock that Jim calls a’Momument’— Well, I wouln’t wait too long for them to show up… Sincerely, David Dunwoody
