Hmmm, yes, Puma Punku... a very hot, tasty and delicious subject with a hint of cheese. This has been such an amazing thread because the debate here
is a very well informative one (...and dare I say educated because of backing proof and the expression of wisdom/knowledge/education online is
unreliable at best) and this will continue to go back and forth, back and forth. No one can say for sure who built Puma Punku, when, how they did
it, and why they did it.
IMO, I would like to believe that this site was built with assistance of otherworldly beings. I am sure the real answer is pretty mundane and
simple, staring us in the face. Why does it seem like that how it goes sometimes? Besides, did anyone ever ponder the notion that these might be
natural geological shapes? Huh? No? Well, I thought I'd throw that out there.
My ex, who's an anthropologist, finds this site a very intriguing one and she leans towards the aliens theory. BUT... she said with the absence of
writings or technical plans, the only evidence that may give insight to Puma Punku is to find the tools; drills, saws, horses, cranes, reeds, boats,
logs, chisels, jackhammers, what have you. This got her so wound up she went and bought Myst/Riven/Exile for her computer. What a nerd.
In someone's signature, they had written 'We're all missing the point' (...or something to that degree). I don't think the peeps here are
simply missing the point but mucking up the waters in a stick and jab fashion and dancing in a haze of references and opinions.
When Jon Stewart was on Crossfire (...I think it was) he told the Democrat and the Republican guys that all they do is argue, argue for
their side, to be right, the other is wrong and this is why, based on their own political views and opinions. It's human nature. The rep and dem
don't put forth the good points and find a median or compromise that would work and neither do those in science fields. I once seen chimps fist fight
during a game of Scrabble.
This is why we will always have an unstable government and terrorism: people can't agree. But speculation is only speculation. A large part of
understanding, should be in application. Bruce Lee taught me that. Not personally, but you know what I mean.
We all can speculate on how things could have been drilled, moved, cut, etc. but how much understanding would that bring if we didn't apply these
techniques? Cutting stone using water? Interesting, I'd like to see that done. 100-450 ton stones moved on log boats? I like to see that done too.
And remember, using only those tools and materials of the time and place. But if we are so advanced now, then why won't we just do these things now
with our contemporary and superior knowledge to put our theories to the test... and then to rest?
Quickly, I believe the very first tool, before the wheel, was a rock. Next comes the club. Then maybe the loin cloth. Then the internal combustion
engine. Yeah, that's how it went, I sure.
Back to the topic... one thing to me is certain, the craftsmanship of Puma Punku is beautiful and how amazing would it have been to see it in all of
My theory: Puma Punku was built by arrogant ancient alien/giants assisted by Bolivian natives with UFO/hovercraft/boats who didn't write down
plans but used telepathy to communicate, using the local stones since they were artists and expending fuel to bus moon rock back in forth was very
cost prohibitive plus using brick, wood, and mortar is for sissies.
You can quote me on that. Time will tell, oh, yes... time will tell.
I am a Native of North America and I can't speak for all indigenous people here (...because each tribe can and are very distinctive of one
another) but yes, our belief was to care for the Earth as she has done us. But we didn't see our world as God, we just knew we were living in
