I found out about the Dresden Codex from a tweet from @EsotericExposal, it is the oldest known writings from the Americas, and on looking through the
Hieroglyphs, there is so much that we can relate to Aliens, UFOs and even astral travel from what i have seen anyway, so i have started this thread to
see if anyone else has any ideas of the messages the ancient Mayans are trying to convey in these writings, i will try and figure out how to put the
PDF pages that i feel are relating to the things i spoke of, and it would be great to get some input from others on these interesting writings.
The Dresden Codex is described by historian J. Eric S. Thompson as writings of the indigenous people of the Yucatán Peninsula in southeastern Mexico.
Maya historians Peter J. Schmidt, Mercedes de la Garza, and Enrique Nalda confirm this. Thompson further narrows the probable origin of the
Dresden Codex to the area of Chichen Itza, because certain picture symbols in the codex are only found on monuments in that location. He also argues
that the astronomical tables would support this as the place of origin. Thompson claims that the people of the Yucatán Peninsula were known to have
done such studies around 1200 A.D. Thompson also notes the similar ceramic designs in the Chichen Itza area which are known to have ceased in the
early thirteenth century. British historian Clive Ruggles suggests, based on the analyses of several scholars, that the Dresden Codex is a copy
and was originally written between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries. Thompson narrows the date closer to 1200 to 1250. Maya archaeologist
Linton Satterthwaite puts the date when it was made as no later than 1345. It is the oldest surviving book from the Americas.
