Cracking the Maya Code: will 2012 be a non event?
The brilliant work of David Stuart has brought the Maya glyphs to the pages of written history, giving insight to the real life events of the people of those times. The ability to read these glyphs is being shown to the present day Mayans who can now relate it in their native tounge. David has a blog "Maya Decipherment.com" on Wordpress that shares much of his knowledge on this subject.
According to Stephen Houston and David Stuart's interpretation of the Tortuguero Monument 6 it is mainly the dedication of the building that is associated with the sculpture. It has nothing to do with prophecy or the supposed, dread events that await us in AD 2012. This is discussed in the comments by proponents who prescribe to a more meaningful event than the mere change to a new world order.
What Will Not Happen in 2012

Epigraphers await 2012 with trepidation. There will be ill-founded claims, bad Hollywood movies (one now in production), silly reportage, and much distortion of what 2012 meant for the ancient Maya. Every imaginable anxiety will apply to this key event in the Maya calendar. If we are candid, too, there will be renewed interest in our field, which scholars can shape to positive result…if the public ever bothers to listen. A rich ethnography of misunderstanding awaits those who wish to peruse the web.
