Megalyths and ancient advanced technology
For some reason I hooked into a site on Facebook all about megalyths. It's all very interesting but I'm now in a very confused state about it all. I also came across a Youtube channel of a guy by the name of Charles Kos which is also about monolithic structures.

The gist of these sites seems to be that civilization goes back much further than we realize. We've been conditioned into thinking about history in a very simple way, that we evolved through some clearly demarcated periods to where we are now; hunter-gatherer, agrarian, stone age, bronze age, iron age, modern. Hey presto.

What this means is that we assume, for instance, that in the stone age, people were more like baboons who figured out how to hit one rock against another and that over time they managed to become so proficient at this that they could make pyramids and flat surfaces which appear to be machined. Because of this view of the intelligence of stone age people, some resort to explaining ancient buildings which appear to have required a more advanced technology as having been built by aliens, since people were just a bunch of baboons.

Now, what I am seeing is a view emerging that there were technologies which allowed people to make stone structures out of cement or carve them using some kind of tools. Many of these structures have been subsequently demolished in what appears to be a world-wide pattern of vandalism or damage through natural catastrophes of some sort. I'm not sure whether the damage wasn't caused by human activities, such as the Conquistadores and Muslims demolishing them because they were pagan.

This is all very new to me. I read some time ago that they have found evidence of clothing going back 150,000 years, for instance. It just seems to me that people have had the same level of intelligence that we now have but that they expressed this in different media, ie., stone and astronomy, as opposed to computer programming.

Puma Punka is one of the most intriguing examples of this old technology. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pumapunku Another of these structures is a castle-like structure at Urartu, said to be the palace of Hayk, a figure resembling David. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urartu It's called the Van Fortress: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Fortress

One of the theories I've come across about how technology similar to that used in Egypt got to South America is that there was travel between the Old and New Worlds much earlier than we are led to believe. I've read one theory which suggests that the Carthaginians left North Africa and sailed to South America and there's a debate about this as a result of finding of European DNA in South America which is said to pre-date Columbus.

On a different tack, I always wondered where wild horses in North America came from. It's said they were introduced by the Conquistadores. I've never understood this and I question it because I can't see these people just releasing horses into the wild in such a way and number that they could form a ferril population. It seems to me that there was some ancient civilization, probably originating somewhere else, in the Americas which collapsed for some reason. Perhaps they had horses?

American wild horses.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Megalyths and ancient advanced technology
It was aliens. Aliens did everything.

Except for the pyramids.
The Egyptians made cement blocks. Weeping

Of course the fact that there are millions of chissel marks, and thousands of fossils and sedimentation patterns in the limestone, doesn't deter these idiots.
They'll believe what they want to believe.
Facepalm

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

My favorite part is them droning on and one for a few minutes trying to pump up these perfectly square stone blocks, about how nobody in the ancient world could cut stone along such flat and straight planes. Then one of the ancient alien dipshits places a square ruler along the top, and you can clearly see a gap between the ruler and the shadow it casts along the block it was placed on, clearing show that this stone block is anything but perfectly square.

Is there a IMDB synopsis? It's three hours long! I need to get some popcorn in.

The geopolymer people say that some of the stones in the Pyramids are poured and others are carved.

It seems strange that some people think that the ability to create a nearly flat surface in stone would have been so technologically advanced that it could only mean that it was done by creatures who had the technology to fly here from many light years away, and then only left us with big, flat slabs of stone, many with pornographic bits and pieces carved into them.

Like this one: [Image: maxresdefault.jpg]

I would have thought that if these people had the technology to carve and to pour cement, they would have had the sense to use these technologies where they were appropriate. Why carve huge blocks of stone and transport them miles if it's easier to pour them in situ? They aren't going to be seen by anyone so who cares if they are carved. We have developed a reverence for stone masons for some reason.

The fact that there are marks from stone tools etc on some of these stones may mean that the tools were used to finish the surface after it was poured.

Images of the Sphinx, in my opinion, show it is concrete covering a structure made of smaller stones, not a huge carved object. Up close the Sphinx shows signs of wear more like how concrete wears and it has holes in it showing it is made of bricks: [Image: 3342408-Face-of-the-Sphinx-with-birds-on...-Photo.jpg]

Needless to say, I'm very disappointed because in Grade 6 I wrote a paper on the Pyramids and spent a lot of time calculating how heavy the Great Pyramid was.

3 hours? It's tackling an entire season of bad TV.

Also, it does have an entry on IMDB. It's literally the second search result for 'ancient aliens debunked' on Google, right below the YouTube video itself. You wasted more effort asking me for it, than you would have needed to find it yourself, for fuck's sake...

I was being "light hearted". I've skipped through a lot of it to get the drift. Thanks, it's very interesting. I note that there have been attempts to recreate the Easter Island statues for instance which shows they can be moved by mere humans. I've never advocated "aliens" by the way. The Romans built their sewer system from poured concrete so it's just a matter of conjecture as to whether the Egyptian had this technology and whether they used it. I don't claim to know the answer or have a preference but pouring concrete would make the process much easier, I would think and answer some difficult questions.
