Nice Find - S&F

I wonder what implications this has on the comparison between these pyramids and Egyptian pyramids.

And does this give the Mayan calendar more weight? And the so called end of a cycle period of 2012?

They don't say how old it is. They don't say how big it is. Unless they just don't know yet.

Oh by the Plieades! thats one of the pyramids from my dream.. if it's the exact one then there should be 1 or 2 more in the "nearby" area and a lake(may be overgrown now) that has a triangular center like island.

They said the freeze predated the catholic arrival by 1000 years, so thats circa 500 A.D, they also said it was roughly the size of Los Angeles. Did you watch the vid or what? :p

None at all. The Egyptian pyramids were built in an entirely different style and were built about 3,000 years before the Mayan pyramids. Egyptian civilization was dead and buried by the time of the Mayas; the Romans were also in decline. The best engineers at the time were in the Middle East, and were building domes and far more complex structures than pyramids.


And does this give the Mayan calendar more weight? And the so called end of a cycle period of 2012?

No. Their calendar ran out in 2012 (not a perpetual calendar) and they'd be busy carving a new one if the civilization had survived the Spanish conquistadores.

Actually, they'd probably be printing one or hundreds of artists would be sculpting them in a variety of sizes, ready to sell when the new cycle started.

Thats a cool story...

I found about the Popol Vuh, their story of creation.... via wikipedia..


The tradition then credits the creation of humans to the three water-dwelling feathered serpents: "There was only immobility and silence in the darkness, in the night. Only the Creator, the Maker, Tepeu, Gucumatz, the Forefathers, were in the water surrounded with light. They were hidden under green and blue feathers, and were therefore called Gucumatz [...]"[5] and to the three other deities, collectively called "Heart of Heaven": "Then while they meditated, it became clear to them that when dawn would break, man must appear. Then they planned the creation, and the growth of the trees and the thickets and the birth of life and the creation of man. Thus it was arranged in the darkness and in the night by the Heart of Heaven who is called Huracán. The first is called Caculhá Huracán. The second is Chipi Caculhá. The third is Raxa Caculhá. And these three are the Heart of Heaven."[6] Together, these gods attempted to create human beings to venerate and praise them. Their first attempts proved unsuccessful. They attempted to make men of mud, but they could neither move nor speak. After destroying the mud men, they tried again by creating wooden creatures that could speak but had no soul or blood and quickly forgot their creators; who destroyed the creatures by tearing them apart. In their final attempt, the "true people" were successfully made out of maize: "After that they began to talk about the creation and the making of our first mother and father; of yellow corn and of white corn they made their flesh; of cornmeal dough they made the arms and the legs of man. Only dough of corn meal went into the flesh of our first fathers, the four men, who were created


And this that I found on some blog, basically summing it up.


This story talks about how unknown gods came down to Earth and made a new tipe of living beeing, the man. At first, the man was perfect, just like the gods, He could see as far as gods did and he could live forever. But then, gods decided that the man could be a competitor of the gods themselves and they distroyed and made a new kind of man. An imperfect man

To me, the story is reminiscent of the Anunaki....

Nope, I'm sure they would still be in the jungle cutting each others head off actually!

They found that one not to long ago, I remember seeing a program about it. Most was hidden and they did show where a massive lake once was. It was awesome the way the place was set up.

Thanks for the Post.

The freeze interests me. Its made up of 2 biggish carved stucco panels and these are the earliest known representation of the Mayan creation myth, 2300 years old.
Well known Mayan myhtology is polluted. Most refer the Popol Vuh (16th century) but the Mayan history is embedded with Spanish Catholic overtones. This freeze is really exciting as it predates any other representations of the myth by at least 1000 years, and is orthodox Mayan belief (depending on how we interpret it)

The Freezes have images of gods, heroes, monsters. The twin brothers retrieving their Old man's head by swimming through the underworld....and que the ATS fringe Atlantis connections.

I will link Hanson's work on the site

Exciting stuff
