    There has been increasing regard to the pyramids of the world and who built them. Your opinion is?

    With our current technology, it would take a prodigious amount of resources to accomplish. Surveyors, to map out "the best place" to build - let's keep in mind that these structures were aligned with the cosmos. Not to mention the ground sampling. Masons, for all of that stone work. What about the ramp and scaffolding? Where are these massive blocks coming from, and how are we getting them here? There are a lot of theories on how this was accomplished. None of which are practical for the required time frame. I have my own opinion. I have a challenge for mankind. Build one! To original specs.

    Well, I believe that these ancient builders...pyramids of Egypt and Central America, Lighthouse of Pharos, Machu Picchu, Easter Island, and the list goes on.. These masters were a lot smarter than given credit for. Just because "modern" men of science or history can't figure out how "primitive" men were able to cut, allign, and fit a 20 ton boulder on top of others, and fit perfectly that a knife blade cannot slide in...or what tools were used to carve the faces on Easter Island, (let alone transporting them), doesn't mean they weren't knowledgable in physics or engineering. I believe they were brilliant in ways we can't fathom. In Alexanderia, Egypt, when Socrates was still teaching, a great library was open for all, and the Lighthouse of Pharos was being built, a great clock was also being built. Every four hours the clock would chime the time, and every day at 8am and 8pm the great doors, each weighing 30 tons, would silently swing open, revealing huge statues that moved in a dance withon, and when the dance finished, the doors closed silently...all powered by steam! I often wonder where we would be today if the library survived, but it was sacked, burned, (twice!), toppled by a massive earthquake, then drowned and completely submerged in the tsunami that followed. Sigh...there was brilliance in that time. Engineering, medicine, philosophy, mathematics, (although no zero), physics, astronomy.... Oh, and a LOT of slaves. Good question.

      Kathleen, it looks like you know a little bit about the topic. We may never know the level of technologies that was held back then. ...or who held the technology for that matter. I can't dismiss that they had all this technology but left no record.

      You're right, we may never know, but thats okay...grin, sure gives us something to wonder about..this is a VERY intriguing subject for me, and how todays people sell them short.. Great question...thank you for this question!! Waves!!

    I've read a little bit about this, but it's still somewhat of a mystery as to who built them and how they were able to be so precise. You stated that they are "aligned with the cosmos." Do you have evidence of this from a credible source that you could post here?

    I like your idea that mankind should attempt to replicate these structures. I wonder how much a project like that would cost? Maybe this would be a good crowdfunding project...

      The information which you ask for a source, I acquired from a history channel or some other educational channel documentary. So I'm afraid I can't give you a citation. With current technology and resources I'm sure the cost would be too high to go fo
