Just one more remark about all this, think about a teacher that want to explain an alternative or a different kind of thinking about all this to teenagers or young adults in class and you ll see a teacher getting scratch like theres no tomorow.

There are too many inconsistencies and unexplained riddles in ancient history. Today, we are unable to build simple objects made in ancient times in the way they were originally created -this in a time when technology has produced the space shuttle and science is on the brink of cloning the human body! It is preposterous to blame all of the lost secrets of the past on the .re that destroyed the Library of Alexandria, as some have suggested.
It is unfortunate that each time a paradox of history unfolds, we are left without satisfactory answers and are persuaded to believe that we have lost the ancient knowledge. Instead of disregarding the facts that disagree with the traditional interpretation, we should accept them and put the theory under rigorous scientific scrutiny. Explanations of these paradoxes and contradictions should not be left only to historians. These are scientific and multidisciplinary problems and, in my opinion, history - as a single natural science - is unable to solve them alone.
It is unfortunate that historians reject scientific incursion into their domain. For instance, the most reasonable explanation of Egyptian pyramid-building technology, presented by French chemist Joseph Davidovits (the creator of the geopolymer technology), was rejected by Egyptologists, who refused to provide him with samples of pyramid material.
Knowledge of our history timeline is important, and not only for historians. If indeed the dates of antiquity are incorrect, there could be profound implications for our beliefs about the past, and also for science. Historical knowledge is important to better understand our present situation and the changes that take place around us. Important issues such as global warming and environmental changes depend on available historical data. Astronomical records could have a completely different meaning if the described events took place at times other than those provided by traditional chronology. I trust that the younger generation will have no fear of "untouchable" historical dogma and will use contemporary knowledge to challenge questionable theories. For sure, it is an exciting opportunity to reverse the subordinate role science plays to history, and to create completely new areas of scientific research.
all i can say is "wow." this is a must read for anyone interested in the possibility of innaccuracies in our current historical record

his was the one where he claimed the Pyramids were made of concrete
his idea was far from reasonable anyway as it would have required more work to grind down limestone and then pour the mixed concrete into molds and then put them ion place anyway. and it never quite explained what the egyptians were doing by placing fossils back in the wet cement as it was drying
his claim that we are unable to produce simple objects made in ancient times in the way they were originally created is also totally false
there aren't any objects that we don't know how they were made, its just that the old way of doing things were so labour intensive that in modern times we have a faster more efficient cheaper way of producing something better.
like who wants a jewel encrusted gold plated sword when you could have a kalashnikov anyway
finally his claim that history is not scientific is totally out there with Von Daniken man
