The funny part is how the stuff he was linking had nothing to do with the staff or bad talking the website or ANYTHING like that...just contributing to the discussion using a less-than-credible source, from what I understand. And they STILL block it.

The central deity of the Lambayeque culture is the character of the winged eye. His face is represented as tumis countless objects, pottery vessels and ornaments of metal, making it the most important feature of the iconography.
The Winged Eye
There are some intriguing interpretations of the ancient Egyptian winged eye symbol and the Aztec "Eye of God" symbol as representing the coronas seen during total solar eclipses. You might also check out the An Aztec "Eye of God" Symbol and animation.

Maybe you were onto something and like most of those who try and limit or attack the Freedom of Speech, they know that. Or maybe the people in question are little cry babies who can't get over a feud with another website. I think its pretty stupid that ATS limits what sites can be posted. For a site that's slogan is
>, it sure likes to restrict the flow of "knowledge" to its users. And I like how your rant thread got closed. You were just using your Freedom of Speech right? No name calling or being rude and then the ones who "believe strongly in free expression and the core concept of Freedom of Speech close your thread. That's pretty funny. **Sarcasm of course**
Oh btw I printed this page, I know what I said. Sad that printing pages is something we have to do on a website meant for "learning", in order to prove one's self.edit on 14-8-2012 by th3onetruth because: (no reason given)
The Altun Ha jade head is truly a remarkable object and exquisite work of art. It is the only one of its kind in all of Mesoamerica. Because it was carved with nothing more than stone tools, we know that it may have taken many months, if not years, to produce. It was also carved from one large solid piece of jade that was imported from the Motagua River Valley region of Guatemala. Jade was also the most precious of stones to the Maya. Beside its exotic origins, its green colour reflected that of water and the corn plant, the two most precious, life sustaining substances to the ancient Maya of northern Belize.
Jade occurs naturally in very few places in the world, although the term jade has been often used to describe a variety of minerals used since ancient times to produce luxury items in many different regions of the world, such as China, Korea, Japan, New Zealand, Neolithic Europe and Mesoamerica.
Large quantities of malachite have been mined in the Urals, Russia. It is found worldwide including in the Democratic Republic of Congo; Gabon; Zambia; Tsumeb, Namibia; Mexico; Broken Hill, New South Wales; Lyon, France; Timna valley, Israel, and in the Southwestern United States notably in Arizona
The first culture to make extensive use of malachite was that of Egypt, a country whose history with malachite goes back at least as far as 4,000 BC when it was heavily mined in the Sinai -- near what is now the Suez Canal -- and in the famous King Solomon's copper mines on the Red Sea.
Mullu was very important since ancient times to pre-Hispanic cultures and remained so until the arrival of the Spanish. When the Inca conquered Ecuador did so through the mountains, as they have excellent farmland. In contrast, the Pacific coast with its warm climate and tropical forests was not economically attractive. But pains to conquer it, as issued from the mullu.

Archaeological evidence shows that people in Neolithic Europe were trading the shells of Spondylus gaederopus to make bangles and other ornaments as long as 5,000 years ago (Varna necropolis). The shells were harvested from the Aegean Sea, but were transported far into the centre of the continent. In the LBK and Lengyel culture, Spondylus shells from the Aegean Sea were worked into bracelets and belt buckles.
Among the Peruvian cultures that used the ax currency outstanding culture Sicán (Lambayeque), Chincha and Mochica. In the Guiana Basin (Ecuador), culture Miracle also used the coin, as in Mexico where the ax currency called Oaxaca (1). All this makes us indicate that in the Peruvian highlands is used barter as a means of exchange and on the Peruvian coast the ax currency.
these are small flat hammered and cut sheets of copper or bronze, like ingots, in double-T or I-shapes, averaging 4 x 6 cm, stacked in similar-sized groups of up to 500 in a stack.
There is no naturally occurring copper in coastal Ecuador, so they clearly traded southward with Peru. From coastal Ecuador traders went northward to Mexico,
