Now that's a big rock! By the way .... all credit in research here should go to seekerof's thread about the trilthon.
I'll borrow some of the best information presented to postulate that in fact the largest stones of Baalbek could not have been moved by the
technology given by mainstream science to our ancients. If it would take some of the largest cranes on our planet today to move these stones then why
should we not assume that our ancients were in fact "Super Advanced" and well beyond the capabilities science presently allows.
Here we go.
The once curator of the ruins has been quoted saying:
"... in spite of their immense size, they [the Trilithon stones] are so accurately placed in position and so carefully joined, that it is almost
impossible to insert a needle between them. No description will give an exact idea of the bewildering and stupefying effect of these tremendous blocks
on the spectator'...."
Some would say the Roman's may have been responsible for these massive stones. .... but ...apparently there is no records from the Roman's
themselves that mention the creation of these stones and they have been known to utilize existing foundations for there own structures built above.
This exerpt mention this as well ;
"There is no answer to this question until all the evidence has been presented in respect to the construction of the Great Platform, and it is in
this area that we find some very contradictory evidence indeed. For example, when the unfinished upper course of the Great Platform was cleared of
loose blocks and rubble, excavators found carved into its horizontal surface a drawing of the pediment (a triangular, gable-like piece of architecture
present in the Temple of Jupiter). So exact was this design that it seemed certain the architects and masons had positioned their blocks using this
scale plan.28 This meant that the Great Platform must have existed before the construction of the temple."
So if it was not the Roman's we must go back in time to possibly ....
"The Ruins at Baalbek"
"Beneath the temples lay a greater wonder, a huge foundation comprising an area of more than five million square feet and containing more stone than
the Great Pyramid at Giza. No mortar was used in its construction and yet in 2000 years it has not perceptibly settled. The secret of this stability
lies in the downhill retaining wall, which contains three of the world's biggest blocks of cut stone. Stood upright, each would be as tall as a five
story building, and weigh more than 600 tons."
And this on the "TRILITHON" stones:
"Already in the last century it was observed that the Acropolis of Baalbek and the temples built on it date from different epochs. The massive
substratum�the great base of the acropolis�appears to be of an earlier date; the three temples on the substratum, of a later date
So what gives guys? ... Can we at least set this off to the side for now as supportive evidence to the theory that our ancient ancestors were super
advanced beyond our present understanding?
The device described here has been speculated as a possibility but if you read on about the application it is quite complicated and difficult to pull
off under normal conditions. At Baalbek ? ...I doubt it.
