An expert in Mayan writing believes he has deciphered a code that will lead to eight tons of gold.

Fox News: Latino said:

Rittsteig calculates that "just the gold in the tablets is estimated to be currently worth up to 211 million euros (290 million dollars). "

Kinda creepy there was a giant earthquake that destroyed the mayan capital in.. 666BC.

Edit: Ok, this article lost all credibilty to me in the last sentence: "In the last chapter, the codex describes the coming apocalypse, which it says will take place on December 12th, 2012."

Time and time again, scientists have said its not an "apocolypse" its the start of a new begining. And I believe this. Its a cycle. If Dec 2012 was the end of days, a new cycle couldn't begin.

Good luck and have a nice swim. My hat will come off to Joachim if he finds anything, or the world ends... (but in that case my hat may be already off)

LOL. This is funny. I love Fox News.

There is no evidence of such early gold use anywhere in Mesoamerica, as far as I'm aware, and certainly not for those purposes. And there doesn't appear to have been a Maya city named Atlan. At 666 BC. Which sank into a lake. It's pretty obvious where those inspirations came from. :rolleyes:

But much more telling, the alleged professor Rittsteig is nowhere to be found in a Google search, except in this single article.

Sadly it seems a nonsense to me.

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

@lkki:  Funny that you jeer at Fox News, that is merely reporting the groups departure, yet say nothing about the German newspaprer that is actually funding this absurd expedition.  Your bias is showing.  LOL

Are they allowed to take the gold home? I don't think it's fair.

It is the start of a new beginning - that could have many interpretations. Such as the start of a new beginning of life... or a new beginning on a political level, technological level, etc...

My apologies. Compared to the Bild, Fox News is an oasis of sanity.

If anyone reads German, this seems to be the original article: http://www.bild.de/B...onnen-gold.html.

I find it funny that took a mathematician to come up with a translation that no professional Mayanist have stumbled upon before.

This sounds more like the plot of a Dirk Pitt novel... actually, I'm pretty sure this is Inca Gold.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
-Terry Pratchett

that would amazing if they do find the treasure. But it's not like the money would go to help anyone who could really use it.

What I am curious about the most is the laws that are supposed to be on the tablets.  That is priceless and would give great insight to their culture.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.
