I addressed the scooped limestone and crumbling black granite already. Those claims, as far as I can tell, are coming from the pseudo scientific crowd
I ranted about already. Their assertions are that there had to be some type of advanced tech required to do x, y, and z. I am not a geologist either,
so I have no informed opinion to share with you. My bullcrap radar spikes though. Because of the nature of the claims and where the claims are coming
from. Frankly, they come from sources I consider completely unreliable. In the form of uneducated opinions and in the form of pseudo scientific
charlatans that tell blatant lies. I can't trust average Joe's opinion as fact because merely observing something and making a claim about how they
feel it was done or how the accepted explanation has to be false, is irresponsible of me. I can't trust the people with horrible track records to tell
me the truth either. Those are the only people I've ever heard make claims about advanced technology in ancient times. Frauds, and the people who
Take the crystal skulls for example. Maybe you aren't familiar with those. There are some wild claims made about them. One in particular that I
recall, was that the skull felt "alive" and would project scenes of the future out of its eyes onto the wall. The theory is that the crafter imprinted
information into the crystal. Cool theory. And one that would be extremely easy to prove to the world if it was true. Accept nobody has ever seen the
skull do this outside of the people charging others to simply be around the thing. That is one of many issues that proves the crystal skulls as
I brought up the crystal skulls for a reason though. As I said, they are not hard to prove fraudulent. One only needs to do a little bit of research
into the claims made about them, objectively. But in this pseudoscience arena, the crystal skulls are still talked about, written about, and hyped up.
All (or a lot anyway) of the ancient aliens/ancient tech crowd push the crystal skulls just as much as anything else. They all push all the outlandish
things. They are always on the same bandwagon. There is always another book or dvd to sell, or lecture to deliver, or donation foundation set up so
all the suckers can help fund their research. Research that they can't get funding for anywhere else because of the alleged conspiracies in mainstream
scientific community. How many decades was Lloyd Pye begging for hand outs? He even begged for money to pay for his cancer treatments.
These guys want you to believe they're persecuted. That nobody will listen to them, or accept their "solid proof". Do a little digging into the
character of these people and the picture becomes clear. They string people along. They tell lies and half truths and play the victim. Oh and more
often then not, the reason the mainstream community of scientists doesn't touch the evidence they offer up, is because they refuse to share it with
them. Because they know it's easily proven false or refutable.
Of course I don't think we have all the answers to our past. There are still plenty mysteries. I certainly don't have the answers. I won't presume to
fill in the blanks where my understanding falls short. I can see how you put a lot of these things together to form your ideas. I do not fault you for
asking questions and forming conclusions! Like I said though, I feel you need to be more objective. You make some bold claims and plenty of erroneous
ones at that.
Please don't take that to mean I think I've got all the right answers to the things we've talked about. I don't feel that way. I've only tried to
point out some of the things I've noticed about your claims and beliefs that I feel are wrong and absurd. Also, for the record. I don't think that
you say is absurd or wrong. Though I do feel your posts are often convoluted.
