David Deal demonstrates a verse by verse correspondence between creolized Phoenician and Hebrew phrases of the Torah. The Mayan’s sacred book, the ‘Popol Vuh’ (book of the community), starts with a creation story that closely mirrors that of the Old Testament. It goes on to tell of a migration of the people across a sea that was split such that they were able to walk dry shod. http://www.martincwiner.com/extensive-semitic-presence-documented-in-pre-columbian-america/
"Cuando tengas que elegir entre dos caminos, pregúntate cuál de ellos tiene corazón. Quien elige el camino del corazón, no se equivoca nunca". Popol Vuh, Epígrafe tomado del libro: 'El camino del corazón' del escritor español Fernando Sánchez Dragó, editorial Planeta, 1991
Mayans used hieroglyphics to keep written history over time. These hieroglyphics has helped historians learn a lot about the Maya like the fact that they believed in human sacrifice. Mayans considered being sacrificed to their gods an honor.
