Okay so please show me what technique they would have used for cutting granite

If you [really wondered about this, you'd have looked it up yourself.

It is known that they sawed granite blocks with copper saws using sand as an abrasive.

Cores were cut through granite using copper tube saws, which was even demonstrated on the idiotic crockumentary show "Ancient Aliens."

If their method was so effective mate why don't we use these methods today?

We do. Granite is sawn today just like 4,000 years ago, only we now have better saws.



We have now plasma cutting that could cut these stones, but before that, your stone selection would be like winning lotto, and to build what. a pyramid ?

"Plasma cutters?" LOL

While plasma cutters are essential for cutting swords out of Titanium sheets, I usually use diamond blades for stone cutting

History is told by the survivors, no matter they are right or not. Truth or not we believe them. If the apparently lost civilizations who build stone henge, Easter island heads ETC... where lost in war or maybe just died out there history and heritage would be forgotten and destroyed. Maybe all this is just a huge cover up, not of aliens or such but of a lost cause. Its possible that the stone henge wasn't even finished, which definitely leads me to believe it was a battle or cover up.

PS: The video is very interesting. I wonder if that guy belongs to MENSA?

Plasma -- cuts at high speeds and generates heat that leaves rough edges. Accuracy is not very high with plasma cutting.

So, where'd the "smooth" surfaces and edges come from?

The edges were sawn, just like we do today.
