Format: Paperback
One of the more intriguing parts of this book was when the author explored the Mayan system of prophecy. He noted that they believed in a 256-year cycle that influenced everything from disease outbreaks to famine to warfare. This cycle was divided into 13 periods of 19.7 years and each period had a specific set of prophecies associated with it. The author back-tested these prophecies and found they accurately predicted known events from the past. I had actually discovered a strange pattern of Native American settlements collapsing after 250 years while producing my documentary Lost Worlds: Georgia (Second Edition) and was researching possible explanations for this phenomenon when I stumbled upon this book and the Mayan belief in a 256-year cycle. The author's research intrigued me and I decided to look into it further and actually found the scientific underpinnings of this system. It appears there is a 250-year solar cycle that influences droughts and insect infestations both of which can lead to famine, one of the primary concerns of the Mayan prophetic system. This solar cycle can also influence disease outbreaks and pandemics, another focus of the Mayan prophetic system. And amazingly, one researcher noted that warfare seemed to wax and wane based on this solar cycle as well which was another focus of the Mayan prophetic system. I discuss these findings in my book Mayan Calendar Prophecies: The Complete Collection of 2012 Predictions and Prophecies. Fascinating stuff. If it hadn't been for this book I would have never learned about the Mayan prophetic system because most scholars won't touch this topic with a ten foot pole. So thanks Mr. Scofield for having the courage to publish your findings in this book!

One of the few sources that makes Meso-American calendrics and cosmology comprehensible to a neophyte.
