    prophecy the destruction of the Earth. All but three volumes of Mayan writings were burned by the Catholic church so we basically have no prophesies from the Maya AT ALL!!!
    All we really have in the way of preserved writing is monumental scripts on stelae and temples.

    The one extensive text that we do have was written in Roman alphabet and is called the Popul Vuh, which is a text of mythology and religion.

    I defy anyone to cite a text that has such a prophecy. Anything else is just made-up crap.

      The Catholics burned all the Mayan texts?  Didn't know that.  I wonder what got lost in that conflagration.

      History will be kind to us because we will write it.
