Today’s post will be about Ancient Aliens again. Hopefully this is not skewing viewers away from the post just because they disagree with the show itself. Admittedly every viewpoint on the show should not be agreed with. Much of the shows questions and speculations are based on a “what if” and then following their own “what if” they pose an “and if so” which is just ridiculous to speculate upon a speculation. That being said however, the fact that much of what they speak of is in the form of actual physical items. Ones that you, and anyone else, if they have the appropriate funds, can travel to and see with their own eyes. Examples of these sites would be Cairo, Egypt to the Giza Plateau, Puma Punku and Tiahuanaco in Bolivia, Angor Wat in Cambodia, Easter Island off the coast of Chile, Teotihuacan just outside of Mexico City, the many numerous Mayan and Olmec sites in Central and South America, Matchu Picchu in the Cuzco region of Peru, The Baalbek Temple in Lebanon, and even the supposed underwater structure off the coast of Yonaguni, Japan.
A bunch of locations were just named and the common factor amongst all of them is that all of these places, according to history books, have not had any communication in the past. Yet, in all of these locations the medium of choice to construct temples was Rock. Now, it may be logical to believe that these “primitive cultures” used stone because they were “stone age people”, but why then would these primitives build with a material that is so hard to work with. It has been said that they built structures this way so that they will last for eternity, and this point is extremely valid. However, if no communication was made between them then why would Egyptians build pyramids, as well as, the the Mayans of Teotihuacan be a whole world away from each other yet they both built Pyramids on a massive scale. According to History books, and modern academia, Egypt’s Giza Necropolis was constructed, or at least the great pyramid, in 2,500 BCE and was the largest man made structure on earth until the Eiffel Tower was built in 1889. That being said, the great Pyramid was built and was the tallest structure on earth for 3,800 years! It took modern man making metals to even consider making structures that tall. Yet “Primitive” cultures did it like it was no problem. They quarried, carved, transported, and placed millions of tons of stone in perfect precise orders so that it matched the stars in the sky (known as Archeo-astronomy). This task seems unfathomable today, and there is no chance we would undertake this task today.
Modern Day construction techniques involving moving massive rocks takes machines that man has made to help him in the process. We use explosives to blast chunks of rock out of quarries, and if we have to transport these stones up a hill we must make a road, reshape the very structure of the land we are moving around. The Egyptians did not have machines, yet they moved stones of over 30 tons, and in some cases hundreds of tons, and moved them from quarries over 600 miles away. This task seems Ridiculous in today’s terms.
In Lebanon there is the Baalbek Temple which has three stones that all weigh over 1200 tons. That is over 2.4 million pounds Per Stone. They are placed so close together that a knife cannot be put in between them. Not to mention they are lifted over thirty feet off the ground. These ancient cultures had to have had some sort of ancient techniques that have been lost to the history books. Man power can only get you so far, and the wooden roller theory does not work for all cases. The use of stone all around the world must be sign of a lost culture. One that must pre-date the Sumerians, or in fact was their predecessor, that had access to information on the manipulation of rocks. Something will be discovered someday that hopefully will shine light on this issue. Until then, it seems, we must fathom and speculate a multitude of scenarios as to how these ancient builders accomplished these feats. Human ingenuity should not be discredited, and unlike the show Ancient Aliens it might not have been E.T.’s, but in fact just a lost culture. A Culture that is not given enough credit for their accomplishments. These ancients cultures were more than likely more in touch with the world than we are today. A symbiotic relationship between the world and the people. Creating a self-reflective, aware consciousness able to achieve amazing feats. These ancient cultures must be discovered to re-write history, and show that we have been a civilized society for much longer than history tells us.
