Um...yeah.

Not real convincing.

Mr Hilliam has been striving for 50 years to prove Spaniards or Portuguese sailed to New Zealand long before Maori.

Sounds more like he doesn't like aboriginal claims.

But where's the part about Maui being an Egyptian name?

You fixed the link. That's where I got the quote.

Pretty funny.

Hi, would it not be a simple reason to suggest that the statues where put in place to ward off would be invaders!
If a mariner saw these from a distance they automatically think the inhabitants where giants and scare them away!

I didn't say it was a dead link. I said I couldn't make your original link work. This one:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I was talking about trying to cut and paste parts of what you posted to construct a complete link.

But, as you said, you fixed it.

And, as I said, it was worth it. For the giggles.

Everything was religious back then. They had to make the water come from water gods. So they built water gods.

I believe it was organics in the bottom of some of the statues carbon dated. Pretty common in archaeology to dig underneath the focus and date that material for your dates.



I'm guessing they must have been at least partially buried when they were first erected, or else they would tip over.

So yeah. That's pretty good. They can't really be older than the dirt under their feet.

Those are the Moai located on the slopes of the extinct crater and quarry of Easter Island Rano Raraku. They were buried by erosion that occurred when all the trees and vegetation was lost. Most of the other Moai on the coast are not buried. These ones are at RR looking north ward.

Rano Raraku.
Does that translate to "Old Baldy?"


Sorry, just looking for a bit of relief from some other stuff on ATS.

LOL

No actually it means:

The current name derives from the word Rano, which in the Rapanui language refers to volcanoes that have an inner lagoon. It is believed that the term Raraku, which means striped or grooved, refers to the large grooves that the south face of the mountain presents, although it could also be related to the name of an old character who, according to tradition, finished with all the evil spirits of the island murdering them with a moko or wooden lizard.

It is quite eroded now so lets have some respect for it as its kinda old and tired - people have been slicing rock off that old dude for five hundred years.

The Hawaiian lizard monster was called mo`o. (no okina available)
So close. But different.

I think I'd rather call him the Hawaiian Lizard Monster.
Sounds cooler.

Has anyone studied the erosion pattern of the moai? For example, the stones at Tiwanaku have on their surface patches of slow-growing lichen.

If there was a global entity that existed and there was cooperation between the different stone builder civilizations it would correlate with Moai being Egyptian in origin

The carbon dating has never sit right with me because of the vague merthod the mainstream archeologist would employ to arrive at a specific range of dates.

Did you read the study I linked too which discussed the carbon dating of EI and other area sites?

Here it is again: www.hilites.org.uk...

If you interested in the dating of the EI skeletal material I would recommend you look at:

Ahu Nau Nau material are not surprising when viewed in light of research identifying Anakena as the site of early occupation on the island, around AD 1200 (Hunt and Lipo 2006).

I'll add a bit about the quarry as I did some work there many years ago. I also went there to track what Heyerdahl had done in his book Aku Aku.
