About the end of the world in 2012? – Predictions are funny things: We still don’t know if the Mayans were right about their warning concerning December 21, 2012 (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to the first show). Besides their writings, the ancient Mayans found a way to record their history, by burying it underneath the floors of their homes over a thousand years ago. Researchers are just now starting to discover these items in central Belize.
The Mayans, whose cultured flourished from 250 to 900 AD (then mysteriously disappeared), would burn down their houses every 40 to 50 years, adding any newly-dead bodies to the pyre. But before they did this, many of them buried their treasures to keep them safe from the flames.
