Only Human After All

The decline of the Maya civilization began some 1,100 year ago when millions of Indians working on the contruction of tall pyramidal temples and palaces learned that their kings weren't gods, Spanish anthropologist Andres Ciudad told EFE.

Translation: Their entire civilization was based on a lie. When the falsehood was exposed, it collapsed like a house of cards.

Big surprise.
