    We found a large number of books, says a conquistador, and, as they contained nothing in them which were not superstitions and lies of the devil, we burned them all, which the Maya regretted to an amazing degree and which caused them much affliction Maybe one of them was the original Popol Vuh, who knows This doesn t seem to be it Here are the Maya, killing some peopleIt s close How close depends on whose word you want to take This version was probably written down in the 1550s, so wel We found a large number of books, says a conquistador, and, as they contained nothing in them which were not superstitions and lies of the devil, we burned them all, which the Maya regretted to an amazing degree and which caused them much affliction Maybe one of them was the original Popol Vuh, who knows This doesn t seem to be it Here are the Maya, killing some peopleIt s close How close depends on whose word you want to take This version was probably written down in the 1550s, so well after Spanish arrival, in Quiche, which is the language still spoken by the Maya The Maya are a civilizatio...

    This book is so cool It s amazing to see the similarities between the Popol Vuh and the Bible, as well as the differences I like the hero twins so much I really like the Mayan idea of conquering fear The impression I got was that they believed that everyone was going to the underworld when they die, and so, conquering fear was what they would practice while alive, so that they could pass through the underworld without any problems Yay hero twins The tree of life was cool too The fruits wo This book is so cool It s amazing to see the similarities between the Popol Vuh and the Bible, as well as the differences I like the hero twins so much I really like the Mayan idea of conquering fear The impression I got was that they believed that everyone was going to the underworld when they die, and so, conquering fear was what they would practice while alive, so that they could pass through the underworld without any problems Yay hero twins The tree of life was cool too The fruits would spit o...
