Product Description

December 21, 2012: the end date of the sophisticated Long Count Calendar created by the ancient Maya in central America. Countless books and websites, magazine articles and newspaper headlines debate its meaning, with enthusiasts in two camps: those forecasting apocalypse the end of time and those who see a coming renewal, a rebirth of consciousness.

Adding fuel to the debate, some scientists see the increasing number of natural disasters in recent years as evidence of a catastrophic climax of events in 2012. How much of what we re hearing is science and how much is superstition? In this film the leading researchers, writers and scientists in the field tell us exactly what this date means to them, why it s important, and what we should expect.

Featured in the film are Graham Hancock, John Major Jenkins, Daniel Pinchbeck, Alberto Villoldo, Anthony Aveni, Robert Bauval, Jim Marrs, Walter Cruttenden, Lawrence E. Joseph, Douglas Rushkoff, John Anthony West and Benito Vegas Duran.

About the Actor

Graham Hancock is the author of the major international bestsellers 'The Sign and The Seal,' 'Fingerprints of the Gods,' 'Supernatural' and 'Heaven's Mirror.' His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures and TV appearances, including the three-hour series 'Quest For The Lost Civilisation,' have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises legitimate questions about humanity's history and prehistory and offers an increasingly popular challenge to the entrenched views of orthodox scholars.

John Major Jenkins is an independent researcher who has devoted himself to reconstructing ancient Mayan cosmology and philosophy. Since 1986, John has traveled to Mexico and Central America seven times. In 1990 he helped build a school in San Pedro, near Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. In 1994 he delivered relief supplies to a Quiché Maya community in the Western highlands of Guatemala. Since beginning his odyssey of research and discovery with the Maya, John has authored dozens of articles and many books, including 'Maya Cosmogenesis 2012' (1998) and 'Galactic Alignment: The Transformation of Consciousness According to Mayan, Egyptian, and Vedic Traditions' (2002).

Author Daniel Pinchbeck was a founder of the 1990s literary magazine Open City and has written for many publications, including Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, The Village Voice, and Rolling Stone. In 1994, he was chosen by The New York Times Magazine as one of Thirty Under Thirty destined to change our culture.

His latest book, '2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl,' is a literary and metaphysical epic that binds together the cosmological phenomena of our time to support the contention of the Mayan calendar that the year 2012 portends an unprecedented global shift.

Pinchbeck lives in New York s East Village, where he is editorial director of Reality Sandwich. He is co-creator of the animation project, PostModern Times.

Alberto Villoldo, PhD, is a medical anthropologist who has spent the last 25 years investigating the healing practices of the shamans of the Amazon and the Andes. He is the founder of the Four Winds Society, an organization dedicated to the bridging of ancient shamanic traditions with modern medicine and psychology.

He is the author of over 10 books, including 'Shaman, Healer, Sage'; 'Mending the Past and Healing the Future with Soul Retrieval'; 'The Four Insights'; 'Yoga, Power and Spirit' and 'Courageous Dreaming.' He makes available a complex body of shamanic knowledge in an elegant and accessible manner.

Lawrence E. Joseph was formerly the chairman of an advanced plasma physics research and development company in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As a writer Joseph has written for, among other publications, The New York Times, Salon.com, Family Circle, Audubon, Art News, Discover and Diversion.

He is the author of several books including 'Gaia: The Growth of an Idea' (1990) and 'Apocalypse 2012' (2007), a New York Times bestseller. He is currently writing a follow up entitled '2012: The Aftermath.'

Anthony F. Aveni is the Russell B. Colgate Professor of Astronomy and Anthropology, serving appointments in both Departments of Physics and Astronomy and Sociology and Anthropology at Colgate University, where he has taught since 1963. Dr. Aveni helped develop the field of archaeoastronomy and now is considered one of the founders of Mesoamerican Archaeoastronomy, in particular for his research in the astronomical history of the Maya Indians of ancient Mexico. Dr. Aveni is a lecturer, speaker, and editor/author of over two dozen books on ancient astronomy.

I had the pleasure of viewing an early screening of this documentary with a couple of its stars and I was very pleased how the film makers took no sides to the debate of what, if anything, will happen on December 21st, 2012. For every theory there was a counter theory. It even touched on the theory of a consciousness shift. It was a real objective approach to the subject that will be in everyone's mind very soon. The array of experts in this documentary was second to none. The Disinformation Company did a fine job on the production of this video. Take it from someone who watches as many 2012 videos as possible, you should not miss this definitive documentary, 2012: Science Or Superstition.

I was impressed by this film--an interesting array of scientists discuss various aspects of the "2012" phenomenon, sometimes reaching opposing conclusions. Decided not alarmist or "doom and gloom," with just enough skepticism. An eye opener in the best sense.

I found the film to be very informative, regardless of pre-conceived notions of the 2012 phenomenon. The arguments presented here are not all doom and gloom OR new agey. The panel of interviewees is sensible and well balanced, especially in regards to the astronomical phenomenon and Mayan history. Certainly a thought-provoking piece in an age where change is inevitable.

Spectacular and beautiful is the photography and illustrations of the movements of the heavenly bodies, and this film contains outstanding discussions about the Galactic Alignment and end of the Mayan Calendar which was known to other civilizations such as the Incans, Egyptians and referred to in the Vedas apparently. The speakers are esteemed and astute authors, researchers and scientists. They seem very open, candid and unbiased and articulate. Esoteric information is discussed which is very compelling. They also add their personal views and hopes for the next age. Obviously this cycle has occurred before. There is much speculation about what can happen, all unknown. The peak of the sunspots/solar activity is expected to be in 2012. So i also suspect that the intense solar activity and global warming is also a natural consequence of the 26,000 year cycles. I believe the ice at the poles begins re-forming 15 years later, and that these also occur at the end of ea 26,000 year cycle. Also that a polar shift occurs at the end of each cycle, not a physical shift, but a magnetic pole shift which is merely a temporary interruption in man's activities, but can serve as an interum opportunity to reconsider lifestyle, Homo Luminous as told of by the Incas, or Homo Spiritus spoken of by Dr.David R. Hawkins, which is actually some years in progress now, or the Golden Rule and or Spirituality but that man continues to live in free choice. Great Presentation.

2012: SCIENCE OR SUPERSTITION gives a good, balanced view of what might very well happen.....Next Year(!)

There have been cries of "....the world is going to end", before, of course. (It often happens every April 15th in the US, just after people finish paying their income taxes. Maybe the WHOLE world isn't ending....but when they look at their bank accounts AFTER paying taxes....!) "End of the World" theory -- called "Echatology", has a long history, and has shown up in MANY religions. Will this be the FINAL "End of the World" time? Check this video and see!

The Good News:

A very religious Christian lady of my acquaintance has said that 2012 will NOT be the end of the world. That 2016 will be the end of the world. She says that 2012 will only mark the absolute SITING of the "Earth-killer", asteroid and the absolute CERTAINTY of Earth's axis-shifting. Then we will have four years to prepare.....

If you know ANYONE contemplating suicide, PLEASE tell them to at LEAST wait for 2012. Or 2016! And, also, to remember the very, very wise words of Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld, in his book, "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Health But Were Afraid To Ask." (Title approximate. It's been a lont time since I've read this book, and can't seem to find another copy anywhere -- not even on Amazon, although many other fine books by Dr. Rosenfeld are here.

Anyway, ehre is what wise Dr. Rosenfeld said about suicide, (and not even mentioning 2012). He said that most people commit suicide because other people are unfair, cruel, or totally nasty to them. If you commit suicide -- you are proving these people right! : )

Everyuone has good and bad days! One way to get more good days is to get more rest and sleep!

Great DVD, very interesting and intriguing. It does not attempt to sway the viewer towards any particular argument about the 2012 prophecy, instead it looks at every it from every angle with a very scientific and logical eye. very very interesting. Definitely recommend

Just last night, I watched four separate documentaries on 2012 and this one was by far the most engaging and comprehensive. There is so much to digest in regards to this prophecy--so many theories--and this film does a great job of sorting it all out.

This is a great movie to watch if you want to expand the way you think about life and everything around you. Although this movie to me appears more superstition than science, i appreciate the unbiased delivery.
