Mayan Pyramids by denilennon Mayan Pyramids by denilennon
You can find this mayan pyramid in Uxmal on Yucatan, Mexico. I really feel proud of being mexican when I look all the prehispanic culture and all our history.

yep, chewing coca leaves can really energize a bunch of primitives to build temples to gods they imagined they saw while tripping on who knows what kind of mushrooms!

Primitives??...man you are a fool...While Europe was living in the stone ages the Mayans had big metropolis with temples, indoor running water among other things. They were great mathematicians, astronomers, artists, I can go on. And about that comment that they had imaginary Gods....so did the Greeks and Egyptians and many other European cultures.

Beautiful picture!!!
I too feel sorry for him. Sad isn't it for him or her?
Very well written, thought, intelligent response btw.
The Mayans had wisdom & knowledge he is sadly ignoring. He would not understand it at this point in his journey. Not his fault, he just has to grow.

That environmental speech you laid down has nothing to do with being proud of someone or something that you literally had no part in, or control over. They built a bunch of big monuments, yep theyre grand structures, theyre undeniably detailed and magnificent. I set this one as my wallpaper. But pride? Look at other aspects of Mayan culture. What about the multitude of human sacrifices, where the victim had his or her heart literally torn out while they were alive, to appease the deity above? What about the slave class of people in Mayan society, are you proud of the human slavery that took place? Isnt slavery the cardinal sin of all time? If they were so powerful and wise, how were they so easily duped like a bunch of primitive cavemen and wiped out by the Spanish?

Mexican pride, because someone built some big temples long ago. Doesnt make sense, i'm sorry. You had nothing to do with it, they probably would have sacrificed you to the sun if you looked at them wrong.

Knowledge and respect of the past makes mankind better caretakers for this planet we call home. Without that respect, we destroy the very things that make us different from the primates. We are just now reaping the effects of our mistakes from the ignorance of mankind. Our Earth is dying and we are feeling the wrath of her demise; the storms destroying our nation, the flooding of our cities, the heat that burns below the skin and sucks the life from any living creature, the melting of our icecaps, all of this is due to mankind's lack of respect for what we have, what we had.

So yes, to look upon the beauty of life before we contaminated it with our "intelligence", is a wonderful and beautiful thing. It is pristine, made by people who did not destroy the nature around it but instead gave it respect as it is what gave them life.

I feel sorry for you.....for obviously you are not understanding of what we have done to our own planet nor of our own selves.

I dont see what there is to be proud of, theyre a bunch of old crumbling ruins built by primitive people you certainly never knew. Yeah good job there, Pedro.

Haters will hate..and that's fine with us...Just because we never lived during that time that doesn't mean we shouldn't be proud of our Mayan culture just like the Greeks and Egyptians and even the Americans are with their stolen land. Get some education. It is clear that you need it!!
