It goes on to specifically talk about what the colours of the earth are, but my interest is this...How did he know? Why is it that someone living 2500
years ago knew the earth was round, like a ball? And why is it that it took a few brave souls burning at the stake to get that knowledge back into our

Plato wasn't the only one. In the Bible it says the Earth is round, and goes into even more details.
Go to your local bookstore. Barns n Noble. Or whatever. Ask for where's located:
Author: Zecharia Sitchin
Books by him: The 12th Planet, The Lost Realms, When Time Began, The Cosmic Code, Genesis Revisited, The Book of Enki.
He covers your question, and much more. And answers it all ! With irrefutable evidence (he lists all his sources) from the Bible, and tons of other
books from Rome, Bablyon, Assyria, Greeces, S. America, more!
Columbus had in his possession ancient maps showing the Earth as a round planet. Ancient rulers thousands of years ago, had maps of Antartica
seen from the air, without its ice cover.
Baalbek Stone bricks
Are there any other examples of ancient knowledge which seems out of place as this does?
- More mysterious than the Great Pyramids. More mysterious than
Stonehenge. The Baalbek Stone bricks are the most mysterious objects known to the public. How were they made? Moved? Fitted perfectly?
Egyptians had Battaries and LIGHTBULBS
- A 2,000 year old, or older COMPUTER.
Aaand... read the book "When Time Began" by Zecharia Sitchin. Irrefutable proof Stonehenge is an ancient computer. Able to be used for some of the
most complex astronomical equations and problems to solve them.
