The new agers who put stock in the 2012 date for great world changing events because of unusual astronomical alignments around the time of the winter solstice in that year believe the mayan and hindu notions that this era of time, this Sun of time as in the case of the mayans, and this Kali yuga in the case of the hindus, began 3114 b.c. and 3102 b.c. respectively, so as the city of Krishna, anciently known during the time of the Indus Valley Civilization as Kususthali, is now submerged in the gulf of Kutch since the sea level rose to consume it, as described vividly in the Mahabharata, the new agers are indicating that the Ice Age ended at that “late date,” the date actually still too early, because the Ice Age ended circa 1500 b.c., at the time of the Exodus of the jews out of Egypt, and the aryans from Iran down into India, those migrations due to the catastrophic climate change with the end of the Ice Age, that change being studied by Harvey Weiss.
Creative mayan and hindu astronomical types centuries ago, with the surprisingly simple precession mapping method explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, manipulatively calculated that the unusual astronomical alignments would occur at around 2012, so they counted back 1/5th of a precession cycle to calculate their dates for the beginnings of “this era of time,” at 3114 b.c. for the mayans, and 3102 b.c. for the hindus, the sea level rise to have consumed Kususthali at that time, but Kutch and Kususthali are the namesakes of Kush, as are the Hindu Kush mountains, that guy Kush (circa 2200 b.c.), a son of Ham, who really got around, and his city, now submerged, the key to deciphereing the Indus language, which is the same language as vedic sanskrit, the semitic alphabet having been applied to the Indus language for the sankrit written language.
