All these people trying to figure out what happened to the Mayan civilization, I have to wonder if they ever considered that the snakes ate them all?


They're pretty sure the same wave of plagues that wiped out most of north america's indigenous populations continued down through south america and wiped out a similar proportion of people (8/10).
So much of the violent push-back on everything progressive and reformist comes down to: I can see the future, and in this future I am not the centre of the universe and master of all that I survey, therefore this future must be resisted at all costs.

Googled, no luck.

Can you please expand on this, thanks.


I'm not sure it's well known. Paleontology is a hobby of mine,so I have a eye for things that are out of place. The tree stumps are not fossilised or even well preserved. Location: End of Millard road,out about 50-100+ meters east of the end of the road in the bay.Visible at low tide of course and the sand layer has to be thin enough to expose them.
