The Turtle in Mayan Mythology
At the end of my talk The Yucatan Connection to Atlantis and Lemuria Using Cayce Clues and Mythology on Wednesday at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. for the Edgar Cayce Forum, a man came up to me and asked me the significance of the turtle in Mayan Mythology.
I knew the turtle had to be significant to the Maya in some way since I remembered seeing a large turtle made of earth and carved stone in one of the Mayan ruins I visited.
Well, it turns out that when the Maya looked at the constellation of stars we presently call Orion, the Hunter, they saw instead a turtle. It represented the original domestic oven.
