There are a bunch of problems with your argument. Basalt can be used to reinforce concrete which is a
in favour of your theory. Basalt is formed
as an extrusive
rock which means it's forced up under great pressure in molten form. This is a
against your theory.
Basalt is very common around the world. It forms much of the world's sea beds and is an underlying layer of much of western USA. Pretty much anywhere
on the planet that was once sea floor contains basalt layers. The fact that it's a natural rock is a
Basalt columns. Let's think about it. "All basalt is naturally formed apart from the columns." This would require a civilisation so
idea. It'd require a very advanced civilisation to account for the intensive work required to create the columns (size, weight, location) and a very
To create a basalt column, the civilisation would need a lot of basalt and that's cool because we've established there's a LOT all over the planet.
They'd need to break down the basalt into dust to reform them as columns or would they use tools and perhaps machinery to carve them?
Carving them out isn't as simple as it looks and especially as the columns are on, or near, every landmass on Earth. Luckily, most everywhere 300
million years ago was one massive landmass. We'd be talking about a super-civilisation that spanned the planet. This raises problems because there are
no remnants at all to show a civilisation spanned the planet "300 million years ago." Sure, there are basalt columns, but where are the lintels? Where
are the walls and steps and foundations of all their towns and cities? I think the lack of any other structures is a
on the theory.
We've got some fossil evidence of what types of life existed 300 million years ago. No upright beings although it's possible we just haven't found one
yet. It was the Carboniferous Period and the planet was covered in plants and trees. Oxygen levels were very, very high and it was a hot tropical
climate. There were no mammals and primates weren't due for another 250 million years. Reptiles and early dinosaurs were settling in and bugs were
plentiful. All these points are a
on your theory.
