That is because the Inca were a newly risen conquering tribe. Yes there were a number of earlier civilizations which the Inca 'knew' about,
when they took over chan chan they took over the artisans there- who were expert builders. The Inca were only around a few hundred years
We seem to have read different 'scientific research', but yes there have been a series of cultures in different parts of SA, just like there
were a succession of cultures in Mesopotamia
Yeah I see your point, they weren't around long, so these 'tribes' as you put must have but my concern isn't with the Incans building it or even the
Tiahauacans to be fair, I just used those as examples because they are well known, the fact of the matter is that South America has so many ancient
mega cities that are incredible, there is a fella by the name of Arthur Posnansky
50 years of his life over there researching trying to determine the actual age of Tiahuanaco, his method of dating was a astronomical way, because
Earth is tilted on it's axis in respect to the plane of the solar system the angle it known as "Obliqueness of the Ecliptic"
At the moment out Earth is tilted at an angle of 23.439 degrees and 27
which is not constant (follow the link for more info if you want) as we know that the ancient south American cultures seemed to have an
amazing knowledge of astronomy (not going to much into that no need) the alignment of the temple Kalasasaya the temple depicts a tilt of the earths
axis amounting to 23 degrees and 8 minutes, which according to many astronomers who checked the workings of Posnanskys work agree that the date is
around 15,000BC at the latest. His results were studied intensively by cricits in 1927 and onwards, but all that did verified his conclusions and
vouched for the reliability of them. If you would like these I'll dig up the links.
Also that link you provided told me nothing about how they did it, just that they came and moved in and/or were taught some masonry skills by the
Tiahuanans, but what I was referring too I don't have too much knowledge in, and to be completely honest I haven't made my mind up the process isn't
called melting haha, I meant vitrified and the molded, Vitrified process
now I'm not
sure of the cred of WM but it was an interesting read.
It might be, but the failure to find the elusive ground truth evidence for such a huge empire is shockingly suggestive - and based on what
Plato said there should be evidence all over SA (is SA was Atlantis) and the Med, yet it isn't
Yeah I agree, I guess not many people will believe it is 100% anywhere/true, until any kind of major artifacts are found. But when we think about
finding a technological advanced society living around 10,000 BC it's hard to comprehend especially with the way of thinking we are used to and how
history is taught to us, I mean the implications are pretty huge if it turns out Atlantis is real, our entire human history would be re-written. I
mean if they were advanced whose to say it would be anything like our society is now. The proof could be there, were just looking through the wrong
