A Question

If the Mayans were smart enough to predict the end of our world, how come they couldn't predict the end of theirs?

  2. Yes interesting question the answer to which is the history of the Mayan empire as currently understood and the history of the interaction between the Mayans and the Europeans, which shows a real lack of understanding of what exactly was going on as opposed, say, to a kind of stoic acceptance of the inevitability of European dominance. Which is a long way of saying I know, or think I know, because of historians reconstruction of Mayan history. But then I am a middle-aged fool so who knows.
