"According to the initial report, William Gadoury of Québec was able to align more than 100 Maya cities to maps of modern constellations. When one constellation appeared to be missing its corresponding city, Gadoury turned to specialists to interpret satellite images of the area in an attempt to find the 'lost' site."

Fun quote:
When our story ran, we received a lot of comments from readers who claimed that scientists debunked your theory simply because they are jealous of your research. Do you think this is correct?

Yes, I think scientists are jealous. Sometimes they are scared of new ideas. They're afraid to have their established ideas criticized.
"... almost every critical biblical position was earlier advanced by skeptics." - Raymond Brown
