4.2 – THE DOOMSDAY PROPHECIES (2.17.12)

THE SKY GODS [3d]

Tikal. Northern Guatemala. Located within the dense tropical jungles of Central America, this archaeological site was once one of the great urban centers of the Mayan civilization. Here, along the Grand Plaza, the Maya built seven pyramid-shaped temples aligned to mimic the constellation Pleiades.

“They called it the Seven Sisters because it consisted of seven bright stars. They also believed that the Pleiades was at the center of all fixed stars, so when they looked at the Pleiades, they believed that that may have been the center of all creation, and they believed that they came from the center of that creation, or, simply put, they came from Pleiades.”

“Why would the Mayans go through such a tremendous effort to recreate a mirror image of the stars on the ground? Why would they do that unless they wanted to contact the extraterrestrial gods who had originally given them the information?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Pleiades was not only important to the Maya; It was also important to Native Americans. The Cherokee, for example, the Hopi, believe that they descended from star beings that came from the Pleiades star cluster.”

According to scholars, the Maya believed that powerful gods descended to Earth from the stars, including a feathered serpent known as Kukulkan.

“According to Mayan legend, Kukulkan was the winged serpent, some serpent god who could fly.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Kukulkan, by the Maya, is depicted in a number of ways. Sometimes he is human. Sometimes he is a serpent. Sometimes we see him emanating from a serpent’s head. We know that there is no way that a human being can emerge from a physical serpent, so the serpent must stand for something else either a construction or a device. Now, because we know Kukulkan is a deity, we also definitely need to consider that this device is somehow a ship and Kukulkan emerges from within the confines of the ship to the outside world and reveals himself as a deity to the people.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“Kukulkan was the creator of all life who led the Maya into an age of scientific advancement, and advancement of art and architecture. According to ancient Maya mythology, Kukulkan left the people and said he would return one day, and many scholars believe that the ending of the Maya calendar, on December 21 this year, will mark the return of Kukulkan.”

400 miles north of Tikal, in the ancient Maya city of Chichén Itza, stands a uniquely designed pyramid, built by the Maya to honor Kukulkan.

“Unlike most of the pyramids all around the world, the platform pyramid we can find at Chichén Itza is not directed in a north-south or east-west direction, but it’s a little bit off. There is a specific reason for that, and that is, during the spring and fall equinox, a shadow play is cast upon the side of the pyramid signifying the descent of Kukulkan, the extraterrestrial descending from the sky, staying a while on Earth, and then ascending towards the heavens. What we have here is an example of living mythology. So, my question is: what did they mean when they talked about this deity that descended from the sky?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Why was it so important to the Maya to build such an elaborate temple to honor Kukulkan? Did they really expect this serpent god to ascend to the heavens and then descend to Earth? Or could Kukulkan be something even more incredible? Something not of this world?

“If you look up in the air today, and you watch a plane, it leaves behind this plume of smoke as it travels across the sky and you’ve got the snake’s tail wiggling at its backside. So, if you look at it from that perspective, that can be described as a flying snake. And in my opinion, that was nothing else but a description of some type of an extraterrestrial craft that descended from the sky out of which the gods, lower case “g,” emerged and taught them in various disciplines.”

    – Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The message is clear. God Kukulkan descended to the humans. He was a certain time among the humans. He was the teacher of the humans and then he disappeared again, but with the promise to return one day to the humans.”

 – Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Is it really possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that Kukulkan was, in fact, a flying spacecraft, engineered and piloted by otherworldly visitors? And, if so, could this explain the frequent depictions of this ancient Mayan god as having a face appearing out of a serpent’s head, similar to that of a pilot operating a vehicle? According to researchers, clues to the connection between the Maya and otherworldly beings can also be found in the Mayan manuscript known as the Popul Vuh, meaning “The Book of the People.” It is a collection of the only known Maya oral histories still surviving. Translated and written in the mid-16th-century, this book encompasses a range of subjects, including Mayan creation myths.

“The Popul Vuh begins with nothing. There’s nothing there. There’s a watery surface, but there’s no sky. There’s no land. The gods emerge out of this water. They begin with nothing. And the gods decide to make people. Coming right out of one of the most seemingly inhospitable places for civilization to sprout, comes this culture, the Maya, who create this collection of independent city states and build pyramids. They develop a written language and a mathematical system. They grow up into this forest there, reaching populations into the multimillions.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Center)

“In the Popol Vuh, it clearly states that life was brought here by the gods and that those gods came from outer space. It doesn’t say that they came from inner Earth. It also doesn’t say that they came from another continent or another land. But it states specifically that they descended from the sky and essentially brought knowledge to planet Earth.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“What you have in the Popol Vuh is very much like a manual. It is something that you want to give to the people and say, this is what we, our ancestors, have decided together with the gods, and this is really what you should keep in mind for the next few centuries up until the moment in time when the gods return.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Is it really possible as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe that the Maya god Kukulkan was an extraterrestrial entity? One that is destined to return one day from the stars? And, if so, does it suggest that there may be truth to another Mayan legend, one that predicts that our time on Earth may be running out?
