When we stand back and behold certain accomplishments of mankind,
such as powering a spaceship to the planets, building the pyramids, the
incredible architectural feats, and on and on, we may comprehend the vast
amounts of resources that it has taken to accomplish some of these tasks.
It is further easy to deduce, that when we lay this template of resource
usage over the feats of nature, being the egocentric creatures that we
are, that we come to the conclusion that it has taken billions of years to
create what nature has created.
This, simply because we cannot duplicate
it. Unfortunately, this may just be one of the greatest failures of
mankind. We falsely believed that when we were able to build ships to
cross the seas that we had mastered the oceans of the earth;
thought that we easily understood electricity, that we had conquered it;
When we landed an instrument on Mars or found a rock from Mars here on
Earth, that we knew the planet and its secrets. We have failed due to our
own puffed up egos. It seems that although years have gone by, we still
believe ourselves to be the center of creation.
The very fact of the matter is, that we continue to be subject to
the whims of nature. Cataclysmic weather and earthquakes are weekly
occurrences. To add to the stew, it seems that this egocentricity, that
has consumed us, now causes us to be at greater risk due to our poor and
ineffectual interpersonal relationships. In other words, unless we suffer
disaster personally, somehow we are able to deny the existence of
suffering due to natural causes entirely. We see it on the evening news,
we read it in the newspapers and we even pass by it on our freeways. Yet
we continue to ignore, through psychological denial, the possibility that
we are facing a cataclysmic disaster. Perhaps worst of all, we are
becoming accustomed to disaster and indeed numb to the future
So here is another reality check. If the indications for such a
future occurrence are here, and we continue to not prepare for such
an event, then perhaps a look into the past when these things have
happened before, will help. There is recorded documentation, if we take
the time to look, that global changes have actually occurred. Further,
that our ancestors have had to adapt to survive. Here is yet another proof
and another reason to prepare. Read on if you dare.
Ancient Stone Technology
by Will Hart
There are many more significant and pressing questions about
and the archaeological ruins that litter the planet than have or are
asked. Unfortunately, established scientists do not care or dare to
these issues. This is becoming critical because they are
protecting false theories and speculations, which could well bury
within a generation or two.
It is utterly absurd to claim that the ancients used primitive
and knowledge to produce very sophisticated results that we would
difficulty reproducing today with modern technology. I am a
investigative reporter and I have delved into this matter

The highest rated cranes are in the 300-ton capacity and they are a
piece of equipment. The crane that lifts the space shuttle is rated
450-tons and it had to be custom made. I live within 25 miles of one

That earthmover is so large that it is not allowed on the highway.

wheeled-vehicles, pulleys and they only had stone tools. Let me see
these theorists test their ideas in the real world. I can guarantee
speculations will prove false.
In fact, such tests have been attempted in Egypt several times with
disastrous results. Several teams have tried to duplicated what
have claimed were the tools and methods at the ancient's disposal

supervised by Mark Lerhner and other prominent Egyptologists. They
failed to quarry a rather small 35-ton block of stone intended to be
an obelisk. The dolorite hammer they say the Egyptian quarry workers
could not do the job. They they failed to move the obelisk after
calling in a
bulldozer to quarry it. They had a truck transport it instead.
The list goes on. Every major piece of an archaeological site that

A Japanese team tried to build a scale model of the Great Pyramid in
1970s using ancient methods. They completely failed at every step
and had to
call in trucks and helicopters. The finished pyramid was mess. They
achieve any precision using modern technology.
