Copán In The Western Portion Of The Honduras Was The Capital City Of A Major Classic Period Kingdom Of The Mayan Civilization From The 5th To 9th Centuries AD

Copán in the western portion of The Honduras was the capital city of a Major Classic Period Kingdom of The Mayan Civilization from the 5th to the 9th Centuries A.D. There are still Mayan ruins found there. Copán was occupied for more than two thousand years, from the time of the Early Pre-classic period right through to the Post-classic. The city of Copán developed a distinctive sculptural style within the tradition of the lowland Maya, perhaps to emphasize the Maya ethnicity of the city’s rulers.

This intriguing archaeological site has many structures that seem to have been built with amazing tools, just as many other ancient sites the world over. There are various legends surrounding Copán, including many stories of shamans. The word “shaman” probably originates from the Tungusic Evenki language of North Asia, specifically for the spirit-workers in these cultures.

Today, a shaman is a person described as a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to encounter and interact with the spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world. A shaman is often a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits, who typically enters into a trance state during a ritual, and practices divination and healing.

Shamanic beliefs and practices have attracted the interest of scholars from a wide variety of disciplines, including anthropologists, archaeologists, historians, religious studies scholars, and psychologists. Hundreds of books and academic papers on the subject have been produced, with a peer-reviewed academic journal being devoted to the study of shamanisms.

In the 20th century, many westerners involved in the counter-cultural movement have created modern magico-religious practices influenced by their ideas of indigenous religions from across the world, creating what some call the Neo-shamanic movement. I am not concerned about “labels,” but I have been on a quest to learn new and exciting things, and to delve into history, religion, archaeology, and even the study of various theories, such as the ancient alien theory. There are simply too many unbelievable sites around the world, that could never have been built by the humans who roamed the Earth thousands of years ago! They just did not have the knowledge, the tools, or the technology… they must have been helped by someone or something.

How about YOU? Are you fascinated with any of these things? How about tarot cards, astrology, good luck charms, and such? Does the moon affect our lives? Does our date of birth have any influence on who we become? I am looking forward to your comments and questions.

Blessings!

That’s right… the late night radio talk show, Coast To Coast AM, hosted by George Noory, is one of the most fascinating radio talk shows you’ll ever hear. They talk about a wide range of subjects from conspiracy theories to aliens visiting earth, and from urban legends to government cover-ups. You might hear Linda Moulton Howe talk about some very cool things that she has uncovered in her many years as an investigative journalist, such as the mystery of crop circles, or you might catch Giorgio Tsoukalos speaking about the ancient alien theory. There are many fascinating topics covered on this superb radio show, and after listening a few times, you just might get hooked!

One thing is for sure, it’s a much better way to spend a night of insomnia than watching a marathon of reruns about the Kardashians! Does anybody really still care about those people?

Ancient Aliens Had To Have Helped The Humans Build The Pyramids!

That’s right! There’s no way that ancient man, with their limited knowledge, and the tools they used at the time, could have constructed megalithic and monolithic sites, such as the pyramids. It just does not add up!

For example, the big pyramid… the Khufu Pyramid, in Giza, Egypt, is said to have taken twenty-two years to construct. Meanwhile, the structure is 484 feet tall, takes up more than 13 acres of land, and has two and a half million blocks of stone. Some of the blocks weigh as much as 100 tons. Today’s machines cannot move a 100 ton block of stone!

If “they” built that pyramid in 22 years, that would mean that they had to cut a stone, move it, and put it in place, every nine seconds. Not possible! Some experts speculate that they could have made a ramp, and used wooden rollers to roll the stones up the ramp, but given the size of the structure, and the weight of the stones, they would have had to use some ramps that were two miles long. Not possible!

Ancient Alien theorists, such as Erich von Däniken, Giorgio Tsoukalos, and myself, believe that the Earth might have been visited by extraterrestrials in the remote past. For over 45 years, Erich von Däniken has pursued that theory! Erich von Däniken is said to be the world’s most successful non-fiction writer of all time, and he has written 55 books and e-media on the topic and has sold over 65 million copies worldwide. His books have been translated into 32 languages. In the United States Erich von Däniken won instant fame as a result of the television special “In Search of Ancient Astronauts,” based upon his first book Chariots Of The Gods. If you are the least bit fascinated by this subject, but do not yet know much about it, be sure to consult some of his materials.

His research organization (Archaeology, Astronautics & SETI Research Association), comprises laymen and academics from all walks of life. Internationally, there are about 10,000 members. There are millions of people around the world who believe that aliens have visited the earth, in the past, and right up until modern times.

Giorgio Tsoukalos is the publisher of Legendary Times magazine, a consulting producer of the TV show Ancient Aliens, and now has his own show In Search Of Aliens. Tsoukalos has also written lots of material about the subject.

If you’ve never seen the show Ancient Aliens on The History Channel’s H2, then I suggest you watch a few episodes, as it is extremely interesting and amusing, and will stimulate your thinking about the subject.
