That's more than a reasonable argument, after all religion can cause people to do some pretty kooky stuff. It doesn't prove there were "sky gods", only that these people believed there were and this was how to communicate with them. It may be a combination of things too, sight lines for astronomical observations, communicating, shamanism, cultic practices that may have lost all meaning yet were to ingrained in their followers to be let go.

In some areas the lines are so dense one has to wonder how many generations were overlapping one another, obscuring the work of a previous generation with their own.

BTW, the team that discovered this has a good track record and made earlier, accepted discoveries in 2006.

My main question is this,

How do the whale bones found in the Nazca Plain get there?

If the plain was under water it could change a lot of views.

According to geologists the ocean levels haven't been that high for a pretty long time.

The whale bones are fossils and have been there for a pretty long time.

You need to investigate the geology of the area.

Or, did you think a whale had an incredibly large jump out of the Pacific one day and landed in Nazca?

You're assuming that the lines and the fossils aren't the same age.

I am not.

Carbon dating is only accurate if the item is less than a thousand years old, anything older is just a WAG on sciences part.

If the area was seashore when the lines were carved the meaning and usage might be different.
