Suppressed By Scholars: Twin Ancient Cultures On Opposite Sides Of The Pacific
Frontiers of Anthropology ^ | 5-14-2012 | Dale Drinnon

Posted on 05/19/2012 8:28:22 AM PDT by Renfield

One of the greatest archaeological riddles—and one of the grossest academic omissions—of our time is the untold story of the parallel ruins left by two seemingly unrelated ancient civilizations: the ancient Mayans on one side of the Pacific Ocean and the ancient Balinese on the other. The mysterious and unexplained similarities in their architecture, iconography, and religion are so striking and profound that the Mayans and Balinese seem to have been twin civilizations—as if children of the same parent. Yet, incredibly, this mystery is not only being ignored by American scholars, it’s being suppressed.

What does archaeology have to do with big politics and big business? Everything. This next statement, written in boldface, may sound absurd to you; but please keep reading, then look at the photographic evidence in this article, then draw your own conclusion:

By controlling major academic institutions and the mass media, a vastly wealthy elite group of powerful corporate families is successfully hiding historical and spiritual truths of our ancient past. The goal of this group is to maintain a secretive global system of economic and political tyranny that their forefathers established more than a century ago that was once termed the “Invisible Government” by influential American leaders.....

If this is based on sculpture and architecture, it is very thin evidence. All of these designs are natural things that a culture would design. If you want to make a really sturdy tower from which to dominate a landscape, the most stable and easy design is a pyramid. I built stacked-stone retaining walls for an earthen bank, and this is the only way for an amateur to do it. The other evidence are doorways and the sculptures are profoundly different, one blocky and squared and the other lavishly curved.

What you need are stories, language and music to make the case.

Don’t understand it well enough to truly know if the cultures are related or not. But i do know one thing,, a culture that understood astronomy and could build such buildings, and do such amazing stone masonry,,could have certainly have built boats and ships.

Remember, it wasnt so long ago that America was populated onlt by landbridge over Bering straits, and a southward spread 12,000 years ago. Now it’s all but a certainty that clovis culture came from europe much earlier following the last ice sheet. Also,,,sites in South America predate the old 12,000 year rule.
This is a tough field in which to truly establish hard facts. And it’s changing rapidly.

“What you need are stories, language and music to make the case.”

And even then it may not do it, but the argument would be far more persuasive.

The archeology is interesting, but the entire article is an advertisement for some kook religion.

In real terms there is clearly no relationship or even a strong similarity between the two cultures.

Ethnic relationship between the two = ZERO
Religious relationship between the two = ZERO
Known contacts between the two = ZERO
Similarities in architecture, art, etc. = minimal at most, and all accidental when you consider what is involved.

The similaritites in architecture are all physics related. “This works and this here does not”.

The other similarities are common to other cultures.

As far as early colonization of the Americas, I suspect that most of the evidence is under the water of the continental shelf. The seas rose and fell a good amount during the last 200,000 years or so.

Bali was settled from some five thousand years ago by the same Austronesian people who populated and brought rice farming to the to the region as well as those who settled the Philippines and Oceania.

The architecture shown in the photos reflects Hindu influence combined with the Dong San culture from present day Vietnam. Metallurgy goes back into pre history. Burial rites in Bali included the interment of defleshed remains in pottery jars which was used in locations from Tibet to Laos and Southern China.

Bali has resisted Islam and retained a culture that was once common in Indonesia and Southeast Asia with a rather unique architecture due to the Dong Son influence. Other peoples in the large and diverse have quite diverse and unique architectural styles though Islam has largely served to suppress them.

This is all omitted from all these scholarly blah blahs.

I have read that the authentic Mayans of today still have Mongolian Spots at birth, a thing common in S.E. Asian cultures, but unique to new world.

I thought the notion that Amerindians were Polynesian in origin is hardly even considered controversial. The sad thing is that web site is attaching the most ridiculous nonsense this notion.

Seems as though that a similar type of argument could be made (partly now and , based on the trend, very soon) for this Nation when comparing it to a time when the Constitutional Republic still existed to present day and/or the abject tyranny in the near future that is now unavoidable.

Gee, that Malcolm X really got around, didn't he?

For some reason, pyramids are found in a lot of different cultures. It's the "stairway to heaven" idea, I guess.

Motifs like dragons are also found in very different parts of the world.

I totally agree. I wonder what is hidden under the mud of the Missippi delta. The delta would have had a mild, favorable climate during the last ice age and would have been a natural location for a villages and cities. When the last ice age ended 9000 years ago the sea levels rose 300 feet and the Mississippi River would have covered them in sediment.

This is very interesting, but us skeptics know that correlation is not causation. I love this kind of stuff, but written as it is here its just too Erik Von Danniken. But fun to consider nonetheless

I imagine, in a Lovecraftian sort of way, a massive ruined city under the sea where the Hudson Canyon drops off to the abyssal plain.

Don’t know about the Balinese but, the Mayans Or ancesters of) are considered a lower class of people in their own land.
