Climate Change? Mayan? Probably because of that stupid stone calendar.

Bullsh*t.

Demands for rationing for the developed world ... while the UN idiots party their arses off ... (see Bureaucrats gone wild video)

Like the "global hunger" summit they had in Africa a few years ago ... complete with a multi million $ catering bill for all the lobsters and booze the knuckle heads could consume. ... typical. S17

It's typical behavior of all elite kleptocrats really. I mean, was the Soviet Politiburo any different?

Uh, yeah...NOT. Try again.

The Aztecs had human sacrifice, the Mayans did not. The Mayans were leveled by 200 years of drought and conquest by the Spaniards. The last Mayan cities weren't subjugated until 1697.

Huh,

Yes,the Mayans did. Almost all ancient pagan societies did,but,the Mayans almost exterminated themselves.

So,again,if I was a pagan like these modern day earth worshippers,I'd dream up a more successful god to pray to. Not such a demanding and flawed group the Mayans worshipped.

Just using a little brain power,maybe a Greek god or 2,they did quite well in their heyday.

I don't agree with you, or your sources. There are too many that disagree with you. Especially since the last Mayan cities didn't fall until long after the Spaniards started exterminating them to find non-existent gold. The Mayans didn't practice human sacrifice on anything approaching a large scale. They certainly didn't exterminate themselves with it. That honor belongs to the Spanish.

Huh,

Your opinion impresses you more than physical &historical evidence. Interesting.

I guess you correct me next time I can expect the same subjective reasoning?

Do you also believe the Americans exterminated 90% of the natives,Canadians,too?

Most accounts of the Mayans indicate their societies largely collapsed by 900 AD,how is it the Spaniards murdered them all in a holocaust when they arrived centuries later??

Also,the story has it the Spaniards had 100,000 Indian allies to help subjugate the continent,something must have caused those Indians to desire to side with foreigners,got any ideas what it was caused that?

We had much the same thing happen up here,any ideas why?

The more you search,the more these Mayans were like all other pagans,all into the exact same nonsense. Divination via various means,human sacrifices(common across the globe back then),star gazing,barking at the moon,etc.

I spent about 1 hour searching and most of the response are scholarly.

BTW,seems the Mayan hieroglyphics also tell the story of their human sacrifices:

??? The Mayan empire/civilization collapsed around 900 AD. This was accomplished by a persistent drought and inability of their society to adapt. It was the Aztecs that were done in by the Spaniards.

it's like the usa, who achieved the highest state of developement during the era the founding fathers lived, and have been in moral decline ever since (worshipping of false gods such as "god" or money etc). the maya probably adopted a couple of things from more radical and successful cultures during their decline, their estates weren't so far apart. curious that their civilization collapsed during a global warming period.

Back engineering, one can infer that the Mayans had SUV's which caused the gw.
