DFN: And I thought NASA was all about going to the moon! In 2005, I made my first trip to the Yucatan peninsula, my wife and I visited Calakmul, which is 60 kilometers off of 186 (the highway heading E-W, W from Chetumal), and less than 30 kilometers from the Guatemalan border. Took us about an hour to get there, it was a Sunday, and the caretakers charged us though supposedly, the sites on Sunday were ‘free’. We had the site to ourselves!
Mayan City Of Mirador: The World’s Largest Pyramid Discovered!
by admin on Oct.27, 2009, under Latest News
The following CNN Video features the discovery of the world’s largest known pyramid in the Lost Mayan City of El Mirador in El Peten, Guatamela.
Mirador was one of the earliest important Mayan sites and flourished from 150 B.C. to A.D. 150, when it lost its pre-eminence to nearby Tikal, the most famous Mayan City. Measured at some 70 meters (230 feet) high, the Danta Pyramid is the tallest structure the Maya ever built and was mostly buried by the jungle, with the steep apex of its hills protruding from the forest top. El Mirador (The Lookout) lies in the remote northern reaches of uninterrupted jungle, covering 10 square miles of the greatest concentration of civic and religious buildings, carvings and artifacts in the Mayan world.
A new Mayan archaeological discovery of a 2,200 year old carving was found at El Mirador, Guatemala. The archaeological site El Mirador continues to astound the world. A team of archaeologists, mostly Guatemalans, under the coordination of Richard Hansen made the discovery of a carving of the Mayan Pre-Classic Period which dates from 200 BC. This new finding was presented by the Minister of Culture and Sports, Jeronimo Lancerio and businessmen who support the project. Vice- President Rafael Espada and important members of the Guatemalan Press were also present.
“This finding is impressive as finding the Mona Lisa. It is an impressive example of Mayan art”, Hansen stated. The carving is in a structures that was used to store water and shows a Mayan mythological passage, where the twin heroes Ixbalanque and Hunacpú leave the underworld carrying the head of their father, Hun Hunapú. The archaeological site “El Mirador” is being developed to be the crown jewel within the Park “Cuatro Balam”. This is a development project which aims to create the largest archaeological park in the world, containing over four thousand Mayan pyramids. – Guatemala Times.
Archaeologists have since uncovered evidence of a civilization so advanced that many long held beliefs about the Maya have been shattered. With thousands of pyramids yet to be uncovered and ancient artifacts to be translated; the currently held theories about mankind’s origins, evolution, history and development will undoubtedly undergo the same.
“The first step in the NASA Blue Beam Project concerns the breakdown [re-evaluation] of all archaeological knowledge… of supposedly new discoveries which will finally explain to all people the “error” of all fundamental religious doctrines. The falsification of this information will be used to make all nations believe that their religious doctrines have been misunderstood for centuries and misinterpreted.”
