Who claimed they are magical?

They are celestial events that time-periods are based. Interesting though that the Mayans knew what they did about planetary alignment without the technology we have today.

I for one could not look into the sky without a telescope and distinguish a star from a planet.

Also interesting that in an age of sticks and stones, they were able to carve a calendar into a stone that accurately predicted when the event would repeat.

Maybe you can explain it.
