In this video we see that the Serpents of Chinchero have a vitrified surface.

The Inca couldn't possible do this so who did?

please explain WHY the inca could not have done that ?

PS - dig a trench - lay a fire - lay the stones in - build the fire up - ignite - voila



EDIT TO ADD :

the profusion of inca era pottery shows that they were capable of kiln building

Maybe it was hit by some type of fireball? Maybe solar radiation over the centuries could cause that effect? Maybe the people just liked it shiny, so it transformed to make them happy? Or.... *Aliens*, shhh.

Like already asked, why could the Inca not do it?

The Stones look polished and then cooked to me, there is only a very thin outer layer of probable vitrification by the looks of it, and the stone is just very shiny and smooth rather than turned glassy and translucent.

Human first cooked rocks (to allow the making of better tools from poorer, grainier rock) a couple of hundred thousand years ago, CBA to look it up but it's an ooold process. Putting masonry into a fire to get a similar change in texture etc is a simple enough thing, and easily experimented with for desired effect.

So.

Why could the Incas not build a fire around polished masonry blocks and let it burn for a day so the rocks look extra shiny?

If you watch the video closely you can see that the vitrification occurs in and around the Serpent and not all over the stone's surface.

Obviously.

The stone was carved with the design, and then cooked.

It's dead simple.


ETA: what we see is actually a missing bit of a "Glaze"/vitrification looking layer in the snake.

The stone may well have been in the middle of a large fire for a day or more if it was cooked, and would have needed cleaning up afterwards and polishing etc, much easier for the flat face than the depression that forms the snake.

Come on man off-course it is impossible for them to do that, until they found away and if not the Incas then who ??..please don't say the A-word just don't and that goes for the other A-word too look when folks put their minds to accomplish a task they can do incredible things and over come incredible odds no exotic explanations are needed.

Not a whit of evidence of any vitrification. Just a tour guide saying that's what it is.

He also states it's pre-Inca, why wouldn't you believe that?

He says it's from the "Hanan Pancha" time, which is part of Incan mythology and it's not some time era. It's a place in the sky.

More fringe chronic astonishment.

They probably just used that to cool off Molten Gold and other metals that melt easily. Put the stone with depressions upward, connect it to a mold and there you go.

Er, why? What evidence do you have that the Inca or one of the earlier civs or cultures in that area didn't do it?

If they didn't do it what evidence do you have about this other Civ or culture - and how did they do it?

Let me guess.... Aliens did it.

Show me a qualified geologist analysing that to demonstrate that its actually vitrified. Not just some tour guide talking about Incan mythology. Humans have been using fire and rocks for hundreds of thousands of years. As Heruactic said earlier it could easily have been used as a gold mould which would have only largely affected the serpant shaped cut in the rock. Don't assume that just because these ancient civilisations did not have the technology that we have, that they were any less intelligent and adaptable as us. A lack of technology does not mean a lack of intelligence.

What amuses me are postings about our ancestors being observant enough to watch a bird use a specific plant leaf to soften stone and then utilise that technology but something as simple such as localizing a fire into a groove cut deeply in a rock is beyond their intellectual capacity.
