I'm kind of mixed on the whole rise and fall of civilization theory to explain away some of the things that have been found. If human beings
eradicated themselves today or were eradicated for the most part by some outside source there would still be some remnant left over from some of the
things we have that allow us to do the things we do.
we find all kinds of evidence of our ancestors, even up to a million years ago, so yeah if a civilization was around even 20 thousand years ago we
would find evidence.
When I look at the size of some of the blocks in various ancient cities it would be impossible even with modern technology to get the same type
of cut. Even with diamond saws there would be difficulty to get the same results, this isn't even considering the transportation.
oh come on, this is just not true, please stop perpetuating a lie, people are lying to you about this.
we could easily build a pyramid if we wanted, bigger and better than any of the old ones, but what is the point?
what does building one prove? it's not only a waste of time but of effort and money, i bet if we calculate the cost of it, it would range into the
you are moving the goal posts halfway through your statement! you say it would be impossible to do with modern tools, then saying it's impossible
because we couldn't do it like them! make up your mind! either we do it like how we build or we do it like they did, thing is we don't know
exactly how they did it so speculation on how they did it is a waste of time, it isn't impossible, just pointless.
on the other hand, we have industrial lasers and factories, if we take the dimensions of a block from any of the pyramids we could easily build it.
how you think it's "impossible" when our top crane lift record is 20 thousand tons is beyond me.
the romans could move 100 ton objects easy in 200 bce! it's not hard at all, it's only impossible because you want to believe it to be.
I think it's very interesting but there is also so much bogus information out there as well. I think people desperately want to believe in
something after common sense tells them the religion they grew up on probably isn't correct. In turn they look to any ridiculous story to grab onto.
One thing to take into consideration is that ancient people may have built things throughout generations considering the lifespans were probably
shorter, moving a giant rock might have took them a few hundred years.
oh come on, do you realize how ironic that first part is? i'm honestly sorry but you shoot yourself in the foot with it.
it wouldn't take a few hundred years to move a rock no matter how big, as per the case of one the heaviest ever, the thunderstone, a 1800 ton rock
they used as the base for a statue of catherine the great.
it took 9 months to move it, they used bronze ballbearings to move it, a rather odd way to move something in the 18th century but it worked fine.
if they used cranes or rolled it it might have taken a heck of a lot less time than that!
Either way I wonder if with certain stones if the could have been created through melting. The rocks at that particular location were basalt
which has a melting point comparable to iron if I'm not mistaken. Certainly would make more sense than a boat, even if the theory is wrong.
thing is, no stone edifices show melting, and melting is pretty obvious even after thousands of years, and there are no large edifices that were cut
out of the same ground they were stood on, so they have to have had them moved from the quarry.
I really don't think those figurines are real, that's my opinion. It's like the Jesus story and how every source of the supposed existence
happened well after the actual time frame of it all happening. In the end if an artifact hasn't been verified by several sources then it's in no way
legitimate in my opinion. Plus why would the dinosaurs look like what we believe the dinosaurs to look in modern thinking? I doubt dinosaurs look
exactly like what we imagine them to look like.
i agree on this, other than to add that the figurines don't have the common signs of being ancient artifacts, no wear at all and they aren't broken
in ways seen with real ancient artifacts, no pieces missing, broken in uniform ways with out wear.
also it seems they were planted with real artifacts, to make them look less fake.
