"If Global Warming is made up, and the reason for making it up is so the worlds population does not panic, then i don't understand. The best way to
make the world population not panic is to not make up a crisis."
Not the fact that is happening. "The reason WHY it is happening"
"The Mayans kept track of moon cycles which have a lot in common mathematically with motions of the Sun as well as other cosmic bodies. A common
misconception is that the Mayans had some kind of mastery over solar cycles and knew things they couldn't have possibly known, but the truth is that
they didn't know! The math of simple things like Moon cycles just has a lot in common with the math of larger cosmic cycles."
The Maya were quite accomplished astronomers. Their primary interest, in contrast to "western" astronomers, were Zenial Passages when the Sun
crossed over the Maya latitudes. On an annual basis the sun travels to its summer solstice point, or the latitude of 23-1/3 degrees north.
"I'd love to see some of your evidence. "
For which point?
Most of the Maya cities were located south of this latitude, meaning that they could observe the sun directly overhead during the time that the sun
was passing over their latitude. This happened twice a year, evenly spaced around the day of solstice.
