It's art. I'm a person that has an appreciation for art.
But dark art, is what I don't want in my life. Dark arts involve killing, so I'll drop it right there.
Anyone who doesn't have such appreciation for art, is less than a slave.
I mean, would you burn a piece of paper?
Then later you realized that the piece of paper you burn was the "Mona Lisa" The multimillion $$$ artifact of Da Vinci's work, and it was the last
So, when I read this, I think about that.
I suppose you found it here. Why do you believe it? It cites no sources and is full of
obvious errors. There is no town or island in Peru known as Puna – it is a region. The name of the town is Puno. The location of Tartessus, a
western Mediterranean port referred to in some ancient writings, is unknown (though it was probably near the mouth of the Guadalqivir river in Spain)
and there is not a smudge of evidence to tell us that ships from the New World ever put in there – or anywhere else in the Old World – until after
Yes, there was a courtyard in pre-Colombian Peru full of golden artworks. It was known as the Coricancha or
Qurikancha and it was in landlocked Cuzco. It was part of the principal temple of the Inca empire,
so it is was a very special place – there were no 'courtyards like it up and down the land' as your source claims. And yes, the Spaniards did take
the gold away and melt it down – gold was one reason why they were in the New World in the first place. Where did it go? It went to Spain (if it
didn't go to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean or into a pirate's purse) and from Spain it spread around the Old World. Most of it probably still
exists, in the form of coin, bullion, jewellery and so on, to this day.
But what makes you think all this signifies the existence of some ancient, forgotten civilisation? The Incas themselves were capable of fine gold
work, and it is safe to assume that they were the creators of the Qurikancha. Inca civilisation is far from ancient – their empire got its start
only five hundred years or so before the Spanish arrived – but before the Incas, there were earlier peoples – there are remains dating back five
thousand years in Peru, though evidence of gold working only appears after the time of Christ. We know that there have human beings in the New
World for around 20,000 years, maybe longer, so there was plenty of time for gold mining and working to develop. Where is the mystery in all of
But I see that you have put your cards on the table now, and they proclaim that the truth of history is based on some science-fictionalised version of
fundamentalist Christianity. If that is what you really believe, then no amount of reasoning with you is going to change your mind, is it?
The reason why you never heard such findings is because they are silenced. Which means digging in the right places, the dimmest places of them all.
I don't focus on the brightest to those kind of books, only the ones who people will pay to be silenced.
And no, that is not where I found such a source. It would be more of a compilation of sources. Same author, different book, "Dead Man Secrets." But
that is the thing about gold mining, mind what you say.
How did they get it? Some gold was, in your term, impossible without certain procedures.
Creationist fact? That is a load coming from someone who hasn't read the book. If you don't know who the man is, then a person has no right to taunt
that person or the person who said such writings from their point of view. If they do, they do it in Dishonor.
But, going off of a book call "Etidorhpa" publisher "John Uri Lloyd"
Man's mind is a creature of doubts and questions. Answer one query, and another arises. His inner self is never satisfied, and you are not to be blame
for wishing for a sign.
(Referance, Etidorhpa, John Uri Llyod, Chapter 24, Page 168)
In other words, it's okay. I acknowledge your doubt, and I cannot cure it. Only you can. If you ask for evidence, I just point the direction. Nothing
Last thing, if you'll please.
Not in detail, obviously (and we never will), but there is a broad narrative as well as a wealth of detail that arises clearly enough from the
observed facts. It leaves no room for doubt that Earth is very ancient, that life emerged upon it billions of years ago, and has been evolving to
attain its present diversity of form ever since.
Ok, Metal. What do we know about it today? Rough and hard with some, soft and smooth with others, and over a hundred of others in between. There are
hundreds of ways to harvest them, and a thousand ways to shape them.
But to some, they are not willing to admit that they, in the past, were better. I mean, super-heat furnaces, some found in USA that can reach 9000
degrees Celsius and another in Peru can reach 1773 degrees Celsius.
And what else? Steel Tweezers (Armenia, 2500 B.C), Hardened bronze that is equal to high-grade steel (THAILAND, 3000 B.C.). The list goes on. We are
not smart, I'll give everyone that.
When we think we are, we are not. And because of that, pride steps in and says, "We are smart! W do not need help from those who came before us!"
A.G. Bell. One who started the telephone because he focused on the past invention.
The old devices have been reinvented.
He wondered whether the ancients might “not only have attained our present knowledge, but a power hitherto unmastered by us.”
Learn from the past, make the future better.
He who controls the Past, controls the Future.
He who controls the Present, controls the Past.
Thank you sir.
