TZIBICHEN CENOTE, Mexico (Nov. 9) - Legend says the afterlife for ancient Mayas was a terrifying obstacle course in which the dead had to traverse rivers of blood, and chambers full of sharp knives, bats and jaguars.
Now a Mexican archaeologist using long-forgotten testimony from the Spanish Inquisition says a series of caves he has explored may be the place where the Maya actually tried to depict this highway through hell.
Using long-forgotten testimony from the Spanish conquistadors, a Mexican archaeologist has discovered a series of caves where people from the Mayan civilization tried to depict the journey into the afterlife. The network of underground chambers, roads and temples beneath farmland and jungle on the Yucatan peninsula suggests the Maya fashioned them to mimic the journey to the underworld, or Xibalba, described in ancient mythological texts...

thanks for linking that. that last picture is awesome. makes caves like that look like you can just casually stumble upon (or into) them. still not convinced there's a hell (or heaven or after life), but cool nonetheless.

yeah, I'm not a big believer in an afterlife,
but I find it interesting that 1000 years ago these guys tried to re-create in the physical world that they lived in, what their mythology said existed in the after world...
they explored all these caves, built all these stairs, pathways, and altars, etc. without any kind of modern tools or machines and had to do it all by torch lite hundreds of feet underground...

Saw that article as well, naturally buried beneath tons of 'who is hollywood whore X adopting today' bullshit. This happens to every article that could possibly further a reader's brain-power in any way, same shit everytime something about the Hadron Collider pops up.

Well it has more to do with selling papers rather improving public IQ.
