It cannot be denied that the major civilizations of the world were consumed with sun worship, king as god, underworld, basically the same pantheon with the same attributes in general ect. All mimicking a major influencing civilization.
Sure it can be denied because its incorrect, Sumerian king derived their power from gods, they were not worshipped they were considered 'agents' of the Gods. AE considered the Pharaoh an aspect of a god/god (it changed over time) but the Sun wasn't their main target of worship.
You appear to be trying to use a Gish Gallop, putting out claim after claim but ignoring my replies, go back and respond to my replies, either accept, deny or show how they are wrong, thanks.edit on 9/7/13 by Hanslune because: (no reason given)

Now one would think that you would understand that in Egypt for example the King was the living manifestation of the sun and would pass like the sun, on his royal barge. You are setting here and trying to reduce what any first year student leans about the royals just so you can produce some leg up in the argument. The Sun kings the world over held themselves as Gods, children of the sun.

And you're right OP, there is pleanty of circumstantial evidence to support the hypothesis of a now vanished but highly technological Human civilisation existing across the Earth at some point in the remote past.
In addition to the skeptic argument that no advanced technology has ever been found to indicate that such a unified civilisation existed, simply isn't true...there is plenty of evidence of such technology.
Ancient mega structures, very similar to one another but spread apart by half a world or more....pyramids being just one type of these structures.
They incorporate VERY high technology evidenced in their construction. They incorporate high math, high technology in quarrying and transporting materials, high technology in the actual building methods and so on...the same is true of all pyramids found all over the world.
I don't subscribe to the theory that Egypts pyramids are only 4500 - 5000 years old...i believe they are much older, at around 15000 years old...just before the last ice age came to an end is when i think they were built.
There are also many OOparts or out of place artifacts that are found all over the world.

so, you say there is no radiation found in these sites, all just ´bogus´...I´m not talking about old Mahabharata translation interpretations.
The region is home to a particularly poorly-safeguarded nuclear power plant

can you back that up with any data?
Dhirendra Sharma, who used to teach Science Technology at the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi, informs us that ‘in India an estimated 300 incidents of a serious nature have occurred, causing radiation leaks and damage to workers. These have so far remained official secrets... A major mishap in Tarapur in 1979 resulted in thousands of litres of irradiated water gushing out from the reactor. But the Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission reluctantly acknowledged only a “pinhole” leak.’
In another serious incident a reprocessing plant at Tarapur was closed down due to contamination. It is reported that at least three persons died in the ‘inert’ chamber inside and more than 3,000 workers have been exposed to non-permissible doses of radiation. The Madras Atomic Power Station Unit-1 at Kalpakkam was reported to have suffered an explosion soon after it was commissioned in July 1984. The Rajasthan Atomic Power Station Unit-1 had to be shut down. More than 2,000 workers were exposed to excess radiation and 300 had to be hospitalized.
Surendra Gadekar, leading light of Anumukti, a Gandhian nuclear resistance group, points out that the nuclear dream is really a nightmare. ‘The scientists and bureaucrats in charge of our nuclear program are above accountability,’ he laments. He and his doctor wife Sangamitra investigated the condition of villagers at Rawatbhatta in Rajasthan, where they discovered gross radiation-related deformities.
This is a story told to Surendra Gadekar. One day in Narora a worker with a geiger counter went to take tea in the canteen. His geiger counter suddenly went crazy. On investigating he found that the radioactivity was coming from the fire used for preparing the tea. Further investigation led to the discovery that the wood being burnt had originally been used for scaffolding inside the plant, and had got contaminated and hence should have been stored as low-level waste. Instead it had been sold to a contractor, who had fortunately sold it back to the canteen: hence this sordid practice of how the establishment deals with its waste was detected.

The thing is, is all the technology we have even necessary. Is this really advancement or is it stupidity. Do we need to be Genetically modifying food.
Originally posted by rickymouseDo we really need to be in space or flying around the world increasing invasive species ability to destroy the environment and spewing toxic chemistry into the sea and air. With the complicated society we have more and more people are taking antidepressants, caused by rising stress from raising the bar of knowledge and technology and from the change in food chemistry. Even a hundred years ago, many people lived a simpler life.
Originally posted by rickymouseI can look around my house and garages and see that if life was simpler I would not need all this stuff. Stuff I worked hard for for twenty five years. I look at all the expenses we have and think, how come we need to have everything we have, where have we gone astray. We were caught in consumerism for many years.
