Lost World of the Maya (Full Episode) | National Geographic

The Maya - their soaring pyramids, monumental cities and mythical mastery of astronomy and mathematics have captured our imaginations and spurred generations of explorers into the jungles of Central America on a quest to understand them. Lost World of the Maya surveys their dramatic rise to prominence in the 'pre-classic era' of the Maya as well as new evidence of the collapse of their civilization in the 800-900's AD.

    As a sucessful vegan, is hard takes longer to cook but way healthier, real coco (not saying pure and may contain dairy and or gluten) powder tastes better and is enough protene, one of the highest protene foods/drinks makes being vegan easier rather than having to include handfuls of other foods containing protein but higher in other nutrients. Im so thankful for nature and coco plants and for people that choose to make real and sell real coco powder. If people ate coco and not just everything than they would probably have been around like the animals are around/stayed around. Its my opinion, dont hate me for my opinion, we are all alowed an opinion or should be allowed one, cos if no one had an opinion life would not exist and all there would be is hurt and hurting and war, life means conection not seperation. There is a reason there is harmony in nature and with animals, that animals dont make other animals exstinct, one of those reason is they not kill each other for fun or any other reason apart from to live and have no species take food from other species. If the past civilations had connections thay would still be there. I have not desrcimitated. Fact is the civilian there is gone and the past is the past so opnions on the past can be any opinion. There was hate and harm, they hurt the animals and themselves. There was no respect or love, just harm. Maybe try just respect than you will see there is not no reason to harm. Try not hurting each other, dont allow hurt and than there is no hurt from hurt. Pretty sure we all want to be the king of the castle but y cant we all be the king of the castle. Life is for everyone not just some, clearly the rain did not want to rain for just the king and so gave up raining. Everthing has feelings, even every cell in your body has feelings, science has proved this, science has also proved that hate and lack of care kills and not just food and water is enough, they found out by expermenting on babies sadly. Its even been proven water reacts to emotions. I thinks its overdue respect and is about time there is respect before there are serouse mother nature consiqences like what has happened to myian civilians.☯️🌦🌳🐛🦋❤️🌳☯️🙂💔💔💔💔❤️❤️❤️❤️ so love life and life will love you back afterall and forever, the sun and seasons will grow plants and flowers ect, the night and darkness most wont grow in. Deep dark down under the sea, the animals have light in them to exist, light is needed and humans and earthly animals and plants depend on light so darness and destruction doesnt help at all. Its time to show respect, respect means life, no harm should be tolerated ☀️☯️🌦❤️🌳🐛🦋🙂🙂🙂🙂🐝🐝🐝🐝
