The Mayans aren't indigenous people?

Doesn't the name Guatemala come from some Mayan Language which means land of trees?

There will always be rednecks...teabags or no teabags. As long as someone has some pigmentation in his/her skin, there will be haters claiming some sort of deity-authorized superiority over them.

Better not start up with that protozoa/evolution science stuff, since we understand the Earth to be 5,000 years old, yes?

You think Mayans used to live in Ca? That is what this thread is about.

This could be debated forever. Depending on where you are getting your information, it might be partially true, completely true or not true. Growing up in Los Angeles we were taught (through reading of course) that the combination of Spanish and Indian created the Mexican nationality.

I enjoy these sorts of statements. They tend to be humorous, But, let us change history a bit and see if it still works.

Through war the United States of Mexico took the South, including Florida which rightfully belonged to them. It was won fair and square. This lingering argument that The South belongs to the United States of America is completely absurd. The United States of America lost the war, they need to accept this fact. Look at history, defeated countries just have to accept that they were defeated and live with the consequences.

The South is not a part of The United States of America, and will never again be!

My guess is that if this was true history, all the good patriotic Americans would be trying like heck to get The South back.
