    Stoned?

    Not me, but I'll admit to being a little rock-happy especially when confronted by ancient megaliths.
    Forget the alien inferences and just marvel at the craftsmanship and dedication required for these enduring artifacts from pre-history.
    Simple or complex, dressed stone or raw, I am awestruck by the artistry and engineering involved.
    Could you contemplate re-creating these today?


    No wonder more modern societies like the Greeks, Romans and Incas built their temples atop ruins from prehistory and claimed them as their own.

    Don't think they'd let us have enough slaves these days to shape, transport, and lift many hundreds if not thousands of ton blocks and place them with enduring precision. Besides the devotion required in their execution is difficult to instill in a slave work force. So much for the bible claiming earth is only forty-something hundred years old.

    There are so many mysteries that surround us... pretty hard not to be in awe most of the time!

    This PBS show was great... I believe the same method was used for many stone structures.

    Alright Fred;

    First of all how do you come to the conclusion that it is written in the Holy Bible that the Earth is only "forty-something hundred ears old".

    Second, if it was written in the Holy Bible how can you look at these rocks being moved and not come up with any logical process on how it would have taken place, yet you can deduce that the Holy Bible is a myth?


    ....or am I miss interpreting your premise?

    As evidenced by your original post, some times amazing things happen that just can't be explained, ....


    ....Right?
