    Let the article speak for itself.
    I'm curious about explanations, (if any are forthcoming).
    The only one I DON'T care to see posted, "It's been Photoshopped"!

      The sizes of the blocks are certainly unique. However, even I know that tectonic forces are capable of lifting Mount Everest. Lifting the blocks found on Mount Shoria to the surface could easily be a natural phenomenon.

      Smooth surfaces, straight joints and right angles all seem to be common in other rock formations. One expert explains similar conditions found elsewhere on the planet like this:
      “Blocks are boulders being born by mechanical weathering. Several different processes cause solid rock to begin breaking down at Earth's surface.”{1}

      Until the experts express their opinions on this subject, I can accept mechanical weathering as a reasonable explanation.

      Pretty awesome.

    No reason to think man didn't make them.  People have carved stone for a hundred thousand years, after all, and we've repeatedly had "impossible" things done to rock in the past.

    What we can write off, I think, is a "negative geomagnetic field" (whatever that is) and "ancient antigravity technologies".  (Where do these people come from, anyway?)

    I had heard some time ago, several times, in fact, that nature doesn't create straight lines.
    I, personally find it highly improbable that these stones are weathered, or some other natural phenomenon.

    However, if you actually looked at other photos on that page, you will have seen a massive wall, "built" to precise joints, with no mortar!

    Amazing, me thinks.

      I've heard that, too, but it isn't true.  Nature is full of straight lines, although "straight" is a matter of degree (magnify the sides of those blocks 2,000 times and it won't be "straight" at all!).

      I would find it improbably that they are weathered as well.  Not impossible, I suppose, but quite improbable.

      It does appear "built", yes, but that is not a reason to jump to thinking it was ET that did it (as the article suggests). 

      Yes, amazing.  So are the pyramids, the colliseum, stonehenge and easter island.

      Perhaps you misinterpreted.

      The cracks in this photo are called joints. One set of joints are parallel to the surface of this outcrop of exposed rock, giving the appearance of layers. The second set runs up the photo from the center to the top. The third runs diagonally from upper left to lower right.{1}

      From a quarry blog:
      "The most important direction in a granite quarry is the rift or run, the direction along which the stone splits most easily. That's usually a vertical plane. Next in importance is the grain or direction of second-easiest splitting. That's usually horizontal. These might be reversed, but in either case the rift and grain are perpendicular to each other. The third perpendicular direction, called the hardway or headgrain, is the direction along which it's most difficult to split the stone. It's generally vertical." [Ed: Emphasis added.] {2}

      Examples of straight lines are common in rock formations:
      Pillars with four straight sides…

      Basalt Formations in Iceland. {3}

      Pillars with six straight sides…

      Rectangles with straight lines and right angles similar to, but older than the blocks in Siberia, can be seen in Wyoming:

      Vedauwoo (pronounced: vi de vu:) is an area of rocky outcrops (Sherman Granite) located in south-eastern Wyoming, United States, north of Interstate 80, between Laramie and Cheyenne. {4}

      And these straight line joints...

    I read an article in a book I called the 'The Ancient Man', I believe, that details many such things as this. One such discovery was a large solid stone wall found in a bed of coal. The wall was hundreds of feet long, and dozens of feet deep and very thick. There is also the rock wall in Rockwall Texas. It is disputed on whether or not it is a natural formation or a very old man made creation. The biggest problem is the size of the wall would be more impressive than the pyramids. The other problem is that many of the stones are not regular squares like the ones in this article.

    I've always been fascinated by ancient man. I think our snobbery often gets the best of us and doesn't allow us to see past our own advancements. I certainly do not believe that ancient man was any less capable than we are. The Neanderthal for instance has a larger brain capacity than we do. Studies also indicate that their frontal cortex may have been larger with more connections than the modern human. We really ought to abandon the idea that we, as modern humans, are some how better just because exist later on a time table.

    Furthermore, Hitler also plays a role in ancient man discoveries. It is no secret that he had a fascination with ancient technologies. The United states even confiscated plans of an stealth plane a team scientists were building; based on an unknown archaeological discovery. It took til the early 2000's to build the plane and even when pointing a radar right at it, the plane is still rendered undetectable. I watched this on the History Channel, for references.

    There are many kinds of precise geometric shape caused naturally in rock. Round boulders, precise hexagonal columns, etc. I would certainly not rule out natural formation.
