Instead of asking "Hwo did they manage to haul big stones up hills?", we should be asking "Why did they PREFER to build temples at the tips of hills?"
Instead of asking "How did they manage to move big stones?", we should be asking "Why did they PREFER to build with big stones?"
Instead of asking "Why are they agnetically aligned?" we should be asking "Why did they magnetically align them?"
Instead of asking "Why did they use stone instead of metal?" we should be asking "Why did they PROHIBIT the use of metal?"
When you start asking these questions, one begins to get answers.

This is not a very strong point, and it would require alot of reaching. Just wanted to say that upfront.
While reading a few books on standard Egyptology and then serpent in the sky by john west.
One problem I always thought, if ancients had some advanced technology that we dont have today, to move large weights in 3 dimensions (horizontal and vertical and everywere inbetween) then why use stone at all? Surely if they had anti gravity then they could make steel. And make stuff easyer and quicker.
I have a few explanations for this.
1. Aliens did come, and whatever ET tech could be used to move big blocks was readily available. Or was easyer to make or execute than mining and smelting or other metal production processes.
2. The advanced people/civilization needed all the metal available to leave earth and what was needed to leave but left behind(pyramids etc) was made out of stone. This would align with the theory that the pyramids are an energy harnessing structure.
3. A combination of the both
Now obviously there are human explanations, and some that at this point I am more inclined to believe. But this is ATS so lets ignore thoseedit on 15-10-2012 by ubeenhad because: (no reason given)
