The Mayans also knew of stars that aren't visible to the naked eye or a regular 6 inch telescope. You would need Hubble to see them. So to me they also had some sort of divine intervention that taught them these things. Maybe not God, but aliens, fallen angels or whatever else that may exist in our multi-dimensional world.

Actually I'm using the Euclidean Geometry definition of a circle.
Circle
A circle is a simple shape in Euclidean geometry. It is the set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance from a given point, the centre; equivalently it is the curve traced out by a point that moves so that its distance from a given point is constant. The distance between any of the points and the centre is called the radius.
A circle is a simple closed curve which divides the plane into two regions: an interior and an exterior. In everyday use, the term "circle" may be used interchangeably to refer to either the boundary of the figure, or to the whole figure including its interior; in strict technical usage, the circle is the former and the latter is called a disk.
A circle may also be defined as a special ellipse in which the two foci are coincident and the eccentricity is 0, or the two-dimensional shape enclosing the most area per unit perimeter squared, using calculus of variations.

Saying it was a documentary even if it wasn't Ancient Aliens doesn't give me a lot of confidence. Documentaries are notoriously known for being wrong. I'd prefer some sort of text or document proof that I can verify easier.

A dome (from Latin: domus) is an architectural element that resembles the hollow upper half of a sphere.

Can we just agree that it was damn close haha. We are arguing about different interpretations and writings that have been re-written in several languages.

If anyone wants to see how much a country can change with that great influx of foreigners, just take a Look at Sweden. I believe I read rape was up 500%. You would be a fool to think that such a large amount of people would not have an impact.

That part of the definition that includes sphere is for a cliche. Circle of influence is a saying. It added realm and sphere to the end of it because you can change the saying around a bit by swapping out those words.
A sphere is NOT a circle.
