Naysayers post more disinformation about Mayans and Mexico than doomsayers ever will. Please stop using Apocolyptico as your reference to your
knowledge of Mayans and as to why a documentary that has not even been filmed yet should be discredited. Now who is fear mongering? Mexico is
absolutely using westerner's spin on their calendar for economic gain. They should at least make some money off of our fantasies. But Mexico did not
create the drug cartels, that would be the US who created the war on drugs and the current demand for those drugs.
The Mayans were not a superhuman race, but they did have an excellent understanding of math, geometry, astrology, etc. At times, their knowledge or
dedication to these topics surpassed ours. Primarily because these topics were ever present in their lives. Just like the average US citizen knows
more about computers than an Ethiopian because we use them so much, not because we are a superhuman race.
Do yourselves a favor and visit Chichen Itza. Take a tour and get some basic facts about the Mayan structure. Their knowledge of acoustics was
astounding. They designed temples to chirp like birds and stadiums where you could hear whispers from thousands of feet away.
Entire cities are built in relation to astrological alignments. They
had steam rooms thousands of years ago you would use prior to going to the first observatory known to man. They held Olympic games that North
American Indians traveled to compete in. The number of steps Chichen Itza was built with has astrological significance, still adheres to astrological
alignments, and creates metaphors with shadows that look like snakes slithering down their greatest temple. The thought that was put into it's
construction would be hard for even our best architects to design let alone create especially without the use of a wheel or metal tools (results of
tool use are found but no direct evidence in the form of bronze tools has been discovered).
The Mayans have left a lot of their heritage un-excavated. They are finding new sites and strictures all the time. In fact Chichen Itza has a level
beneath the temple that is currently being excavated. The Mayan certainly have knowledge and findings they have not shared. They also have not
discovered everything about their brethren but continue to find pieces of that puzzle.
I am looking forward to a well respected director creating a documentary on these new findings as well as the civilization in general with special
access granted to him that no other person has been given before. I hope it is not centered around the 2012 hype which I highly doubt it will be. We
have taken snippets of the press conference to generate buzz around the 2012 hype because that is what sells in the MSM. Not new discoveries of
earlier civilizations' practices and knowledge. When the film comes out I bet we see a different theme centering around uniting humanity. Until
then, I think we can all keep our sarcastic dissenting opinions out of what could be a good discussion on one of the most interesting civilizations in
the history of man.
