Sorry Buck, but what a ridiculous thing to say/assume.
Id love to hear your arguement for the post industrial, Post non cannibal dieted, hell, post still seeing the sun as some sort of deity,
Civilisations maths being comprehenseable to that of our own or even anywhere near, our standard.
Go on, Im waiting!
this is what we call a "Genetics fallacy", where facts regarding the genesis of an argument, which are not relevent to the argument itself are used to discredit the argument.
in this case, the facts are the bolded part, the argument is the Mayan calender and math, and the genesis is the Mayan.
in simple words, everything above might be true, but bears no relevence.
just like not having a way to rebutt someone's argument, and calling him "Ugly" instead.
sorry KMA, no jab at you here.
i know you've been looking for it.
there is no useless knowledge, there is only knowledge we don't know how to use
math is the art of stating the obvious

Thanks to capitalism, when your doctor tells you you require a kidney transplant to survive, you no longer can be certain if you actually need a kidney transplant or your doctor simply needs a new speedboat. Nice.
