Analyses from satellites in different space agencies have revealed that there was indeed a pyramid and thirty buildings at the precise location identified by the young man.






Wow interesting jump, expecially as no pyramids have ever been discovered on the continent

This is one of the more solid threads I've ever seen on ATS, and to think for once no debunking and name calling just a bloody good thread about an interesting topic.

The Independant


Is this what you are talking about, these two jokers before this post with the trolling?
Nah, I won't have no part in that.

I have been reading through the Chaldean ancient Star religion and attach the article if you are interested. I found it fascinating and you will see the first explanation of the virgin birth and the trinity. (being interested in Astrology as I said earlier I wasn 't surprised at the reverence ancient people had for cosmology which ruled their lives and world view so wasn't that surprised at the teens brilliant research. I love the explanation from the Theosophists and was blown away by the explanations. It has renewed my interest again. Ignore the trolls and remember best not to share one's snacks with them.

I shall check it out. And as far as the trolls, well no worries, my girlfriend will eat all the snacks and take care of them.

Wow! In short, that's bloody amazing!


Imagine if you were Mayan - you didn't have GPS, Google Maps, but if you arranged your cities to follow the shape of the stars, then you would have a map right above your head.

'Tis true. But I think there maybe a much bigger picture. Don't know exactly what that is. One day, hopefully soon, we will find out.

I'm pretty sure that the bigger picture is that like all cultures, the Maya viewed the sky as a giant calendar, which they used to correctly time their rituals which ensured the continuance of their existence.

its common knowledge


I have one question for the thread
No ones actually seen this ruined city in real life have they, just the blurry satellite image right ?

Forgive me for saying so, but your replies seem very negative towards this story. Has something about it upset you? Obviously these things have to be peer reviewed etc., but still doesn't mean it can't be discussed and hypotheses put forward.

Incidentally, the argument about the pyramid comment seems pervasive throughout the sources. The BBC news article I posted a link to also mentioned it :


Armed with his images, he then collaborated with Remote Sensing expert Dr. Armand Larocque from the University of New Brunswick. By studying the satellite images and applying digital image processing a fascinating discovery was made; LaRocque proved that the 15 year old had found a major city with 30 buildings and an 86 metre pyramid.

So the pyramid I climbed in the Yucatan wasn't a pyramid?

How odd.

I would like them to try this in other parts of the world. Makes me wonder, did they light huge fires in these places to emulate the night sky in hopes of a return visitor?



Well its still a Big Mystery of How Stone to Bronze Age Men Knew of the Stars and constellations and and place them in precise accurate Locations .. AnkorWat is also matched up with a star constellation The Sphinx is Though to Match up with the Constellation of LEO .. but some refute as that Would Place The Sphinx in a 12,000 year old Time Frame and that would be the Last Major Ice Age ... Lost Technology for Sure ... like the Antikythera mechanism
Man know for sure now that Ancient Man has known of the Stars and Constellation and even the movements, Time, distance ... Days years right from the Antikythera Mechanism .. which is from Ancient Greek Times ... and it was like finding a Boing 747 Air Liner before the Wright Brothers Ever Flew Literately.. and it was Mechanical Gears Were Practically Unheard Of Them there existed but Rare and Nothing NOTHING that Complex... and over a 1000 years later Some Italian Monk Decided to Make a Mechanical Geared Clock .. to me .. it tells you we have no Idea of what Technology They Had... I feel Technology was passed down through Hands of Teaching from The Old World to the New World within a few thousand Years .. from Pottery to Structured Building that are close to the Same Blueprints of those Buildings .. but with a Make DO of what was around the Area for materials.. just as a few thousand years Technology Faded and Culture and Religion Changed the Lifestyle Just as it always had Been ! Me Personally I See A Pattern from Egypt down to INDIA South West Asia to BALI to Easter Island to Peru & Central America and then Mexico difference is the Culture Change .. and a Slight Layout pattern in Design Change

This is one of those scientific discoveries via the press
that should make you suspicious
Especially as what we have at the moment, is an image of what could be a field

The scientific approach is by its nature negative until there is at least some credible evidence presented
this isn't that

Experts Doubt That a Teen Found a Lost Maya City


“I applaud the young kid’s effort, and it’s exciting to see such interest in the ancient Maya and remote sensing technology in such a young person,” said Thomas Garrison, an anthropologist at the University of Southern California: Dornsife and an expert in remote sensing. “However, ground-truthing is the key to remote sensing research. You have to be able to confirm what you are identifying in a satellite image or other type of scene.”

In this particular instance, Garrison says the rectangular nature of the feature and the secondary vegetation growing back within it are “clear signs” of a relic milpa. A milpa is a crop-growing system used throughout Mesoamerica, primarily in the Yucatan peninsula area of Mexico (which is exactly where this supposed lost Maya city is located).

Only way to find out is to go there right ? for a Physical evidence ..
Helicopters Planes or Drones going by ... or a research Team to find Out..

and if they find something .. what prize does the Kid Get..

Haven't they found recently discovered areas in South America in places like this ..

seem to me it all been down graded..


As the Kid Said what brought to his Attention ...
is there is NO Waterways near Rivers, Lakes.. its what he is Talking about
The Kids Is talking Places that make No Sense of Being there..
these so called City's where there is no body of water Near By or Very Distant
were most civilization is near waterbody locations ...
but its Directly Near or precised at The star mapped Constellations ..







in these thick Niches .. that Most modern civilization haven't been too ..

Time will tell..

it all Conjuncture and Guess work and Theories .. until the Area
been scoped out and confirmed ..
