The Atlanteans who moved to the American continent also created a hearth of the highest spiritual culture there. In particular, they built sanctuaries for spiritual initiations that had the form of pyramids.
Special research [45,47,82] shows evidence that the Maya culture reached a very high level. The Maya possessed knowledge about the Supreme Universal God, the Creator, Whom they called Hunab Ku (in the Mayan or Atlantic language), and His Fiery Manifestation in the Creation — Itzamna.
But… later, primitivism started to prevail there as well. The Fiery State of the Creator was reduced in people’s minds to worshipping regular fire, which they started to deify and regard as a medium between people and “gods”: the “gods” were believed to receive food from men via fire in the form of burnt sacrifices. Later it was “discovered” that “gods” also needed human sacrifices…
