has anyone thought maybe these ancient ruins used to be labs for extraterrestrials?

if the Egyptians could possess batteries and depict them in paintings, then surely, these mayans are depicting something as well in their pictures of space men, in spaceships

need i mention, the 2012 prophecies??...maybe extraterrestrials will return?

funny hopw people all have different views to different stories

i'm sure that ancient ruins on mountaintops are just as laboratoryesc as these ruins...*rambles* of course the extraterestrials would have packe dup everything, and left nothing but manuscripts behind...speaking of which, WHAT WILL WE UNCOVER once we start digging......in 2 years...

Guatemala will forever be known to me as Agador's (from the movie the Birdcage) homeland. Even when I think of the word Guatemala I hear it in his voice.

nope, the temples were built for 2 purpouses.... 1, astronomical observation.... 2, Place of sacrifice.

The date, dec 24th, 2012, coincides with the astronomical alignment of the galactic plane of the milky-way with the rising of the sun in the east... and since the myans used the stars and the planets to create their calender, this is when the calender both begins, and ends, at this alingment... astronomically speaking, the plane of rotation of the sun will be perpindicular to the plane of rotation of the milky-way.... the fact they could predict a galactic rotation comes from very precise measurments... which they used the steps on their pyramids to make.
