Ancient Mayan government

News of Ancient Mayan Artefacts
Since late 2011, a story has been circulating around various websites of a cache of carved stones and clay tablets that were allegedly discovered in an old Mayan temple. These artefacts bare images of classic, saucer-shaped flying craft and the now archetypal big-eyed aliens.
According to the latest posts, these artefacts were discovered decades ago as archaeological teams moved inward and removed debris that was characteristically preserved by Mayan temple builders as they rebuilt the structures over time. Located in the inner rooms and spaces of a particular temple in Mexico, the collection of statues, masks and plaques were recognized to be evidence of Mayan contact with extraterrestrials and therefore hidden from the public, lest we all freak out.
But apparently, because of the global interest in the Mayan calendar's end on December 21, 2012, the Mexican government is said to have released photographs of the various pieces so that we can understand that this ominous date could potentially involve interaction with space aliens.
Here is an example of what the web reports are showing:
The stone pictured below is described as showing a planet with an atmosphere, a comet or other fiery object being deflected by a friendly UFO (saucer) while it is followed closely by yet another space vehicle. There is even a blow up of an alien apparently piloting the top vehicle.
Is this an event that happened in the past - or a promise of protection in the future? Does this relate to the "end date" of 2012?
Can you believe your eyes?
There has been so much hype and disinformation about so-called "disclosure" by various governments regarding the evidence of both past and on-going contact with non-human space aliens. If the artefacts pictured above are authentic, this would be a breakthrough. Most rational people would find it hard to dismiss the images as representing anything but some kind of alien contact with the Mayans.
While this is just the kind of story that a website like viewzone.com would enthusiastically promote, research into the background of these claims raised red flags early on.
As you will see in this video presentation, the images are being presented by Nassim Haramein [right]. No stranger to YouTube, Nassim has made a living with his PowerPoint presentation which focuses on his discovery of fundamental geometry and its relation to time, space and the universe. I first encountered Nassim's videos several years ago and found it thought provoking and entertaining.
In Nassim's presentations, he mentions how he introduced his theories to the leading experts in physics and astronomy, how impressed they were, and how his thesis is currently under "peer review". Certainly he has a "good rap", as they say. But I was puzzled why such an important disclosure would fall in his lap, revealed to the world in a dimly lit room with folding chairs and an audience of a handful of foreigners.
In the videos, Nassim tells the audience, "You are one of the first to see these things." As the exhibition continues he admonishes someone in the audience for recording the images, although obviously the entire presentation was recorded by someone and posted on YouTube. Here, see for yourself. It gets interesting around 3:20 and beyond.
"The Mayans used to construct one pyramid over another. In the site at Calakmul, workers for INAH have discovered rooms inside the pyramid that have never been seen or explored before. Featured in this film are some of the finds found in these newly discovered rooms, plus some finds that have been held by the Mexico Government. These items clearly depict UFO's and Alien Life Forms. Was there CONTACT?"
Nassim Haramein's credibility has been seriously challenged by many scientists on the web. A detailed critique of his theories and assertions can be seen Here. But what about the artefacts themselves... are they also lacking credibility?
Follow the Money
People who know Nassim Haramein unanimously describe him as a humble intellectual who is pleasant to be around and genuine in his beliefs. They say it is uncharacteristic for him to be involved in a scam - especially since he has little to gain from this. The images and stories appear to have been fed to him by someone with something more to gain.
One of my personal rules when assessing a conspiracy theory or breakthrough discovery is whether or not the person presenting these ideas has a book deal or is financially dependent upon presenting the ideas. Certainly, for Nassim, this does not appear to be the case. His presentation of the Mayan artefacts on the YouTube videos are not big money makers. But there is a money trail.
