    So not sure how many of you have noticed but one of the glyphs had the date 12/21/2012 and with Minerva that is a different race i am thinking Ubi has been inspired by the work of Stichin. For those of you that do not know The date of December 21, 2012 is the date that "apparently the Mayan calendar ends and Stitchin who has done alot of research talks about another race of "people" and goes so far as to say that we are descendants. Well just an idea as it seems to fit somewhat in the AC universe

    actually, a while back they found out that that date is the result of a miscalculation. The Mayan calendar is apparently supposed to end somewhere in 2208.

    Most if not all of us have noticed this.

    Fair enough, just thought perhaps some did not know.

    Did they actually? During 2012 I wanted to hear everyone talk about how the world was going to end, oh well

    Sitchin is debunked by anyone who actually knows what he's trying to talk about, and is irrelevant.

    Unless there's a conspiracy that's out to get him for discovering secrets the world isn't supposed to know, and that conspiracy developed linguistics and found a way to make Ancient Sumerian writings show up in dig sites where it's impossible for Sumerian texts to be found, and in a form which doesn't actually match any known Sumerian writings (Sitchin translates Sumerian on a principle that doesn't work by realistic linguistics, and has "translated" Akkadian writings using his system even though it only works with Sumerian).

    As for 2012 (or whatever the ACTUAL date is), it's just a calendar reset, nothing bad.

    The Mayans don't actually say the world's going to end, just their calendar does, so everyone's making assumptions - it's not the first time their calendar has effectively "run out" - it's just that this current version has been stable and accurate for significantly longer than their previous ones were. And they're not around any more to make a new one. As far as the Mayans are concerned, the world already ended.

    EDIT: 22-Dec-2012 is the release date for AC3.

    Sitchin's interpretations of the Sumerian text are not the only ones, its a common misconception that Sitchin was the first and only person to translate the tablets, but there have been many other translations that have come out with similar themes, ancient aliens and genetic manipulation is one that all interpretations can agree on.

    The original inspiration for the series was the novel Alamut. The modern day stuff is a mishmash of "new world order" conspiracy theories.
