    Uaxactun (above) is an ancient ruin of the Maya civilization which was built around the 4th century and Candi Sukuh (below) was built in Java in the 15th century and there is a 1000-year gap between the two ruins.

    I know this is a dorky first post, but there are only a certain number of material arrangements that large stone buildings can be constructed in. Also, there are only a finite number of ways a human mind can put them together. That should account for the similarity.

    I can tell I already don't like you. Surcease?

    (This is the history message board equivalent of me shanking you on my first day)

    oh, a tough guy. First you try to go all smart and then you try the tough guy act?

    I'll take the cookie, though I'm not really sure what that means. I don't think you do either.
