    I've heard some argue the Mayans were more advanced than us, only they didn't focus on technology as we have and we are simply comparing their civilization to ours based on our own mindset. I'd say what they accomplished is nothing short of impressive. Red, you're examining this too ethnocentrically. :wave:

    Ok, then give me one example of how the Mayans were more advanced than us.

    Then why haven't we adopted it? Why does no civilzation since the mayans use that calendar?

    The Mayan had a unique way of measuring time that was no better or worse than the way we do, it was just different.

    We have just finished the second-warmest global temperature on record for March. There are fluctuations and anomalies in any curve, but the trend is clear.

    Assuming by BS you mean basic science, then yes - it is...

    Even the BBC and NPR can't completely bias the truth - though they sure tried with these ridiculously slanted articles.

    "...period of less rapid warming..."

    Mr. Orwell, Mr. Gore. Mr. Gore, Mr. Orwell.

    Talk amongst yourselves...

    It's just another religion, Red. So worship as you please.

    Wow, Red. 128 year curve and the planet is, what, 4.5 billion years old? Don't blink - you'll miss your data set...

    Any idea where those measurements were made back in 1880? How about in 1980?

    Looks like we've leveled off in the last ten years, eh? Perhaps the 200 year 0.6 degree fluctuation cycle is resetting?

    Who knows? And that's the point. This is voodoo science and media hype.

    And voodoo is a religion.
