um, how do you know? More importantly how do WE know what you say?
I suppose you don't. But I've investigated the claim.
Don't take my word for it - but don't take the fringe's word for it either. If you're really interested, you'll research it like I did.

As I tried to imply, you don't tell the king what's what. He

I believe I've addressed this before here at ATS. I didn't see this reply until late. I'll have to get back to you on this. But you can probably
find it here at ATS. My recommendation is that you use google to search here though. The search function here leaves much to be desired.
and you'll see how to do it (if you don't
Hell you might find it in that search. If I posted it here, it's just a matter of using the right keywords.

The principal deposits of Mica in India are found in Bihar, Rajasthan, and Andhra Pradesh
You made up that entire post. What exactly did you base ANY of that information on? Your imagination?
No, I don't do that.
Check my posts here if you don't believe me. You won't find any flights of fancy, I assure you. Just a wet blanket on silly fringe claims.
Originally posted by tadamanThere are no significant Mica deposits in Mexico or the immediate area to make more than a few bead
necklaces a year. It is scarce there. Not nearly enough for a MAJOR construction project.
The Mica could have come from Oaxaca, IIRC.
Originally posted by tadamanAlso, that little story about hating to be the priest getting scolded for that screw up is just the icing on
the cake. If it was decorative they would have placed it ABOVE ground, not buried it.
That's just my take on the why of it. It is very pretty, after all.
Originally posted by tadamanYou want to imply that they were intelligent enough to PRECISELY align temples to stars and build structures
that last thousands of years using near perfect engineering, yet couldnt choose what to make a floor out of? Even cave people would know the obvious
fickle qualities of mica since it was probably used as a prehistoric material for flake tools when (if) found. It wasnt used allot as you say. Where?
for what purposes? What do you base that comment on? More imagination?
"Near perfect" isn't the way I'd characterize it, and aligning something to the stars or the Sun is ridiculously easy, to start with. The hard
part is maintaining the alignment, but not so hard if you can kill the workers that screw it up - there won't be many screw-ups.
Originally posted by tadamanThe reason why I am taking this seriously is that I have noticed that more than half your activity is spent
as a debunker. You ALWAYS provide the negative comment. Either you are the most negative person on this site or enjoy shutting down
So, you'd rather live the delusion than find out the truth?
I enjoy facts, not silly, uneducated parroting of an idea that came from... wait for it... Zecharia Sitchin. Yes, he's the originator of this
And if I've only spent half my time debunking, I must have been slacking off.
Originally posted by tadamanAlso, you just lied. How do you justify the statement that my information was false and that there are mica
deposits near the temple, if ALL official data in the subject says differently.
You have yet to show any "official" data that say differently.
Mica is found all over the world. Do you even know what it is? You've seen it yourself at least a million times, assuming you ever look around when
Here - I just found this: Link
As you can tell from the above, it's been a while. Pardon me for not remembering exactly.
