Ancient Aliens Season 4
401 (33) The Mayan Conspiracy February 17, 2012
This episode suggests that the ancient Maya were given their knowledge of mathematics and astronomy by extraterrestrials. It alleges advanced city engineering despite the use of metal tools and the wheel; knowledge of celestial events (such as pole shifts) thousands of years before the culture began; and a complex writing system only understood by the rulers and clerics among them. Featured artifacts include the sarcophagus lid of Palenque’s King Pakal who is said to be piloting a rocket ship; the La Venta Olmec heads suggested to represent African people in flight helmets, and the feathered serpent god Kukulkan possibly depicted elsewhere in the world as the Nāga and Chinese dragon.
402 (34) The Doomsday Prophecies February 17, 2012
This episode looks at the Maya civilization and their advanced knowledge of mathematics and time-keeping. It presents theories as to why the Maya backdated the 5125-year long-count calendar to 3114 BC (over 3,000 years before their civilization began), and what could happen after it ends December 21, 2012. Discussed are two artifacts, Tortuguero monument six, and a Comalcalco mud brick that may suggest the return of a star god Bolon Yokte; the Popol Vuh creation myths; the Chilam Balam manuscripts; and the monuments of Tikal (which is suggested to have been built to mimic the Pleiades cluster) and Chichen Itza dedicated to the return of the Maya god Kukulkan.
