This video seems so convincing to me. After finding out the batteries, how can anyone not believe that the ancient civilizations were intelligent and had advanced technology?

I've no idea which video this is supposed to be but you mentioned batteries and i can only assume that you meant the Baghdad batteries.
It seems you have incorrectly inserted the youtube video link..
You only need this part of the youtube URL STNh9n1B44M
Then you need [yvid] either side of that code but the second one will have an / after the [ you can use the shortcut to that which is just above the edit box.

looking forward to an update to your thread.

Technology is the anti=Christ.

Christ consciousness and harmony with natural law is the 'advanced' tech people have come to rationalize.

tech is false. natural is true.

We need to get back in balance and take part in the natural universe.

Of course everyone is programmed to call me crazy so ignore this muse.

Technology, Science, and Reasoning is antichrist because it goes against christ since the bible is full of fairy tales.

"More advanced than we thought" is not the same as "advanced technology."

I'm not sure why so many people are absolutely bewildered by the prospect of the Greeks having a mechanized calender, or the Sumerians discovering that beer + copper = tingle. Or the notion that Indians and Egyptians could stack rocks into a pyramid shape.

The world is plenty fantastic, and history deep and amazing enough, without having to create entirely fictitious stories for it.

The thing is, behaviorally modern humans evolved around 50k years ago. By 5k bce, we've progressed over 45k years. We have learned a lot in those 45k years. Why is it so surprising that in that time we've learned how to create massive buildings and monuments?

People sometimes say, ignorantly, that there were societies millions of years ago more advanced than we are today. Theres no evidence for it, and to find evidence that it's not true... you simply have to read a geology book.

Man, don't feed the trolls! Engaging the memetically crippled in debate is like trying to win at Calvinball.

Is this your best effort? Pretty sure a troll is someone living off another's witty retort just to get their post count up.

Feel free to contribute to the thread at any point. Otherwise best of luck getting your 20 so you can create versus borrow.

Peace

Fox,

It's worse than you thought.

The "Baghdad battery" isn't Sumerian. It dates to only around 100 BC or later.

This should be stuck up as a banner across the top of this forum.

huh, this isn't that impressive, they had steam power and coin operated devices back then.
if you can build gears you can create a computation device, i'd be more impressed if the greeks had planes or lasers.

There are many discoveries that have been made that seem very modern to us. One of the reasons is because the new devices are not new, but borrowed from old ideas.

One such device is automatic doors. These devices are not unique to our time, these devices were used in temples where the doors would open at predetermined times to allow the worshipers in and out. Using math and pulleys, weights and counter-weights and a little math, these doors would automatically open allowing the worshipers in and out.

There were ancient vending machines as well, that would dispense a predetermined amount of holy water or even oils once an offering was made.

There were some discoveries \made, I do not remember where off the top of my head that had a very crude railway cut into rock that allowed for easier pushing/pulling of carts, where it was not a self powered railway of any sort, it is still an interesting discovery none the less.

These ancient contraptions were not necessarily plagiarized for use in the current world, but most likely just similar thinking leading to similar types of devices.

Not to worry...much of this stuff was around in book form as well. "Stranger Than Science", and the Von Daeniken material come immediately to mind.
