third, we have only one man's word that the Aztec believed Cortes was Quetzalcoatl--Cortes. in fact, the only thing that's even a possibility, as far as I'm concerned, is that they thought he was a messenger for said god, especially given that he would have made no bones about working for a great king.
I'm not saying that the Maya did, in fact, know about the end of the world. I don't think they did. I'm saying that a badly-punctuated rant full of historical inaccuracies is, well, what I expect from the other side of the argument, and it doesn't convince anyone when they do it, so.
