Did Extraterrestrials Create the Maya Calendar? (cont.)

Why Did the Maya Picked 2012?
One Reason is the Triple Rebirth of the Sun
The screenshot below is from my astronomy program and it shows why I think the Maya picked the exact day of the winter solstice of 2012.
Here we see a large cross in the sky right over the Maya at high noon with the sun virtually right in the middle of this cross. This is what the Maya called “the sacred tree” and it is a very important motif in their folklore. When I first saw this image on my computer screen, I just about fell out of my chair! This is absolutely amazing!
By the way, please note that this is not the peak of what John Mayor Jenkins calls “the galactic alignment,” which already happened in 1998. I really like some of John's work but I don't think that the Maya missed what they were aiming at by 14 years. I think that they hit exactly what they wanted: the sacred tree over the Maya precisely on this special day.
This image might not mean very much to you right now, but when you understand what it means metaphorically to the Maya, there is a good chance that you will be much more impressed. I cover this in more detail in my YouTube video titled, “Why the Maya Picked 2012,” but for right now, I will only briefly mention that the Maya considered the sun in the middle of the dark rift to be a type of solar rebirth. The large ball of stars in this region of the sky was seen as the pregnant belly of the mother of creation and the dark rift was seen as the birth canal. So when the sun was seen in the dark rift, it was considered a solar rebirth. The Maya also considered the winter solstice and the daily sunrise as two more types of solar rebirths so this means that on December 21, 2012, we have a triple rebirth of the sun. I refer to these three rebirths as the daily rebirth, the solstice rebirth and the galactic rebirth. We have a triple rebirth of the sun when all three rebirths happen on the same calendar day.
