It saids they learned of the map from the Dresden Codex that this treasure actually lies within a lake. I think this would be a great discovery on many levels if they do discover it.

The golden tablets is what they say the Mayans kept their laws engraved on, well to me this would be intresting to see what kind of laws a society such as the Mayans held within their structure.

Fox News isn't a credible news source. Is there any other information sources citing this information? Doesn't make much sense, and kind of seems like "entertainment-news" which Fox News is very famous for... Do you have any pictures pertaining to the subject?

i agree, fox news is not a credible news organization. the odds are that the only thing actually based on facts in that report is that mexico is a country.

If they did exist and were found, they'd probably be photographed and then melted down for sale.

The temptation not to "waste" all that gold in such dire times would be overwhelming.

Fox news is as credible as any other mainstream news source, and the MSM is all we have to work with at the moment.

I think Apacheman is correct, they would be photographed and melted down immediately.

Was this place near Lake Titicaca?

Doesn't "Atlan" sound awfully similar to Atlantis? And it was ruined and buried by the lake after an Earthquake? And the Mayan civilization was known to be advanced for its time, so ...............

Did anyone find any other links concerning this information? Fox News is entertainment news, I think that is pretty common knowledge. The similarities with "Atlantis" and the amount of gold, and the year 666 B.C. leads me to believe this is all about as credible as a National Enquirer articles.

The stories based on a German newspaper account which is based on the "work" of Joachim Rittstieg, who also writes about Atlantis. He's a mathematician and the team of "scientists" in the article is basically him and his team. I don't know what his reputation is, whether he's considered a crackpot or not, but the fact that he writes about Atlantis (his theory being that "Atlan" = "Asgard") tends to indicate his brand of science falls well outside the mainstream. I don't know enough about this individual to say he's a legit peer-reviewed researcher with credibility or he's another crackpot with his own interpretations seeking treasure. I can't find ANY papers written by this guy, other than his book "ABC der Maya" (which doesn't prove much).

I guess if he finds something then we'll know he's the real deal, if not, oh well.

Dang. Not if I get there first!

Maybe we could recreate Treasure of the Sierra Madre all over again.

Seriously one of those golden tablets of the law would be worth a lot more intact than melted down. If you auctioned it off to the highest bidder, you would see this.

The stuff is probably loaded down with all kinds of demonic curses too.

All news outlets are the same. But if this was on CNN you would believe every word of it.
