Thought this was an interesting article - feel that there may be a lot more to it though.

In the British Isle alone there are over 900 structures that are of a similar nature to Stonehenge, and another 3000 that are similar in Carnac France.. and there have been other structures discovered all over the world with similar astronomical alignments.



www.bbc.co.uk...




An egg-shaped ring of standing stones in Australia could prove to be older than Britain's Stonehenge - and it may show that ancient Aboriginal cultures had a deep understanding of the movements of the stars.





Fifty metres wide and containing more than 100 basalt boulders, the site of Wurdi Youang in Victoria was noted by European settlers two centuries ago, and charted by archaeologists in 1977, but only now is its purpose being rediscovered. It is thought the site was built by the Wadda Wurrung people - the traditional inhabitants of the area. All understanding of the rocks' significance was lost, however, when traditional language and practices were banned at the beginning of the 20th Century. Now a team of archaeologists, astronomers and Aboriginal advisers is reclaiming that knowledge. The emu in the sky rock carving and constellation This photo of the emu in the sky, above an aboriginal rock carving, was sent to every school in Australia They have discovered that waist-high boulders at the tip of the egg-shaped point along the ring to the position on the horizon where the sun sets at the summer and winter solstice - the longest and shortest day of the year. The axis from top to bottom points towards the equinox - when the length of day equals night.

I find this interesting also. It's too bad that the colonists sought to denigrate and eliminate the original inhabitants of the lands they moved to, not just in Australia but everywhere. Imagine the lost knowledge!

While your surmise could be right, isn't it strange that anywhere you want to look at old structures around the world where a strong degree of precise science has been involved that none retain a smidgen of those intelectual properties. Is it possibe that the original builders left the scenes...or would that be left the planet?

Or it may be a case of de-evolution.
Or again loss of knowledge due to close extinction events.
When you look at the average Jo, they dont know how to build Tv's or computers. They would only be able to pass on what knowledge they have used in their life times. So not really surprising when you look at it from this angel.

This is very interesting, particularly as you point out the links to similar structures all over the ancient world. However, and not to down play your post, did the actual picture of the rings not under whelm you a bit? It would be great to see these things as they originally were, not as the sad weathered remnants that they have become.

Although im from the UK and fascinated by Stonehenge, i have to say that having visited, the stones at Carnac are something else. I could wander around there for days just lost in thought.......

Very interesting. I was slightly disappointed with the state of the circle, I was hoping for at least 6ft stones
