Unfortunately that is what we are led to believe .The Indus valley civilization is actually older than was thought earlier[ and is perhaps as old if not older than the Egyptian civilization]. Also they did have a writing system even way back in 4500 BC as is evident from the Harrapa and Mohenjedaro seals. I was also quite surprised to know that the speed of light is actually cited in the Rig Veda....Ostensibly our understanding of what we refer to as history continues to evolve.
"The hymn 1.50 of the Rigveda on the Sun, says
[O Sun] you who traverse 2,202 yojanas in half a nimesa.The usual meaning of yojana is about 9 miles as in the Artha´saastra and for nimisha.
The measures of time are thus defined in the Puranas:
15 nimesa = 1 kastha
30kastha= 1 kala
30 kala = 1 muhurta
30 muhurta = 1 day-and-night
A nimesa is therefore equal to 16/75 seconds. It does come very close to the correct figure of 186,000 miles per second.”
At least one piece is so flawlessly turned that the entire bowl (about 9" in diameter, fully hollowed out including an undercut of the 3in opening in the top) balances perfectly (the top rests horizontally when the bowl is placed on a glass shelf) on a round tipped bottom no bigger than the size and shape of the tip of a hen's egg !
This requires that the entire bowl have a symmetrical wall thickness without any substantial error! (With a base area so tiny - less than .15 " sq - any asymmetry in a material as dense as granite would produce a lean in the balance of the finished piece.) This kind of skill will raise the eyebrows of any machinist. To produce such a piece in clay would be very impressive. In granite it is incredible.

The problem is only the people with money can afford to explore at those depths. Those are usually TPTB and do not want some of that info to go main stream.

You haven't debunked anything.

Exactly alike, very distinctively so. Here's a photo and article:en.wikipedia.org... Absolutely identical.
