Did the Ancient Egyptians know the Distance between the Inner Planets?

Giza

Over the centuries researchers have wondered what the significance is to the layout of the Pyramids at Giza. Could they mimic the stars above or possibly hold a secret code hidden within their design? Many believe the three pyramids, one which is smaller and off center from the angle of the other two, is an image of the belt from the constellation Orion. When comparing the layout of the three main pyramids to the night’s sky it becomes obvious the three stars that make up the belt of Orion are almost identical. It seems even more plausible to think this after observing the evidence the Egyptians left behind to prove they were keen observers of the night’s sky. With the advanced knowledge and careful planning it would take to build the pyramids it seems obvious the layout must have been an important part of the design. Could there be more than one reason to build these great monuments in their precise locations? Maybe they do mirror the night’s sky but could there also be other meanings locked within their design? – See more at: http://www.ancient-origins.net/opinion/did-ancient-egyptians-know-distance-between-inner-planets-001841#!bdc589

The Mystery of the Lost Ancient Culture of the Maya

by David Carr  |  6/4/14

The collapse of the Maya civilization is considered one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the ancient world. One can only speculate their downfall from the numerous explanations presented by researchers. The differences of their accounts imply the Maya and their way of life is virtually a complete mystery to our modern way of thinking. How did this advanced society disappear without leaving any solid evidence of their downfall? Is this a sign of a sudden collapse from a cataclysm or, like some believe, abandonment as the result of political upheaval?   …more
