This is a post continuing the news about a new Mecixan documentary talking about the Mayan calendar and it's relationship to 2012. According to the article, they offer photographic proof of an alien visitation (although it actually shows a large human bust, it really does not show anything groundbreaking). They date the bust to about 3000 - 5000 BC and claim that it does not have any features normally found on any of the native inhabitants of the region. The mention of Hawking is (to me) laughable because it appears that they really do not have anything but a rephrase of something he stated previously. What do you guys think?
Mayan filmakers offers photo as proof of aliens, says Hawking agrees

I wish they'd release their presentation sooner rather than 2012. I guess all the hype and potential profits are just too much for some to ignore.
His movie, by the way, has yet to begin shooting. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in Mexico and Guatemala in mid-November.

It looks like a trashy fibber glass Sculpture in Some rednecks back yard.
I'm sorry it was the car in the weeds that made me see it that way.
Anyway even if it is a legitimate artifact it still does not look extraterrestrial
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness

Well if the statue was the criteria
Then I would say they look like humans looking up at the sky.
I never discounted the validity of the statue I was just making a joke to lighten the mood.
If it is Mayan then it looks like a Mayan carving of a person looking up at the stars.
perhaps if it looked less human I might feel that it is a depiction of an ET but then again
it just might be a depiction of Mythological being.
He said the country was working with filmmakers "for the good of mankind." Raul-Julia claims that the order to cooperate came directly from the country's president, Alvaro Colom Caballero. Guatemala is the site of a large number of pre-Columbian Mayan settlements in the Mirador Basin, including the extensive and highly organized city of El Mirador (detail, left; exterior on previous page). In a curious aspect of the new announcement: Guatemalan minister Quezada is quoted as referring to “'Mirador,' the largest pyramid in the world."
But Mirador is not the name of a pyramid. It's the name of the entire settlement, which includes several pyramids, the largest of which is La Danta -- a fact one would expect the Guatemalan minister to know. "Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond" begins shooting on Nov. 15 and is due for a theatrical release in late 2012, before the end of the Mayan calendar. While doomsday scenarios focus on the calendar ending on Dec. 21, 2012, many scholars point out that it simply resets for another 5,126-year cycle on that date.
Dr. Richard D. Hansen, an archaeologist from Idaho State University, is the current director of the Mirador Basin Project, and according to his discoveries here, he thinks that the more than 45 mapped sites in the Mirador Basin may have formed the earliest well-defined political state in Mesoamerica. Although containing striking examples of Preclassic Maya civilization, the remote location of El Mirador has prevented it from becoming a popular tourist site. Major plans by the current government of Guatemala are including El Mirador as an important center of the Cuatro Balam Conservation and Development project.
