I question just how accurately these sites are dated? We seem to have a conflict between two sciences here. On the one hand we have one telling us
when the last of the ice melt off occurred then we find temples and other sites from a much more recent period showing signs of massive flooding.
Now which is it?
13,000 B.C. or 3,500 B.C.
Here is an image that I've always found a bit puzzling. It's a temple complex on the Western side of the range at a site known as Caral Supe which is
now recognized as the oldest in Peru and who the builders were Ancient Egypt's contemporaries. Notice how in the image the top left corner shows what
appears to be damage from a massive flood slicing off or eroding away a section?
It's much more noticeable to those who do a Google Earth view. Those who do look it up will be able to easily follow that swath of flooding
destruction back up to the Andes
Which by the way at the same locations and others nearby we also find what appear to be ancient megalithic standing stones from a much earlier period.
I wonder if there were a few periods of development from various cultures and as stated earlier those who came later utilized earlier much much older

With respext to the flood damage, in arid regions at the base of large mountains catastrophic localized flooding
While not regular it is not unheard of. The perfect scenario is warm subtropical storm dumping warm rain on a heavy winter snow pack, can cause a once
in 500 yr flood with out wide spread regional flooding. It happens here in central cal, not infrequently, we get most of our snow fall in late winter
,Jan- Feb. We can have as much as 30-40 feet of snow in the higher elevations. Now as spring approaches we can get in march subtropical storms, called
the pineapple express, that bring lots of warm rain into the mountains. Theses types of storms are very high energy but localized. So in just a
couple of days of rain you can see six months worth of run off.
So a small spring storm on top of a good snow pack can cause localized flooding of a catastrophic nature
No real need for glaciers and ice dams or going back to the ice age to find the flood. Besides surface traces of flooding at the end of the ice age
would be long erased by know.
Also I think I have found a link between your previous threads on the megalith builders and ancient maritime cultures of the pacific and those
It involves the spondylus trade, spondylus is an oyster,
Spondylus was traded by the people of coastal ecuador to the people of further south along the coast to Peru.
Spondylus trade is also associated with the obsidian trade in the eastern med. The obsidian trade in the med is also associated with the maritime
traders the beaker folk. The beaker folk are associated with Mediterranean megaliths and the beaker culture replaces earlier British cultures and
unified Britain around the time of the starting of the henges.
Beaker pottery is very similar to the pottery of the lapita people of melanesia.
A lapita pot
A bell beaker
The lapita people were also obsidian traders and buried thier dead in large burial urns as did the Urnfield culture of Europe, which was a precursor
to the beaker culture.
The lapita made coil built sand tempered pottery as did the ecuadorians that traded Spondylus shells with the Peruvians that erected that standing
