    No One Has Ever Answered How You Quarry A 1100 Ton Solid Granite Block in one Site (I can't remember the name but I will find it as it is on one of the Sites I have Bookmarked) and move it a mile or many miles and then raise it up hundreds of feet in the air?

    Especially 2 or 3,000 years ago when Mankind was supposed to be Primitive.

    How about Lighting in the Pyramid of Giza?

    How did they see in there to do the carvings?

    There is hardly any oxygen in there to support lighting a cigarette lighter.

    No one knows for sure.
    They weren't that primitive and definitely weren't Neanderthals as you alluded to earlier. :rolleyes:
    The carvings could easily have been done as construction was going up where plenty of light and oxygen was able to get in.

    When I mentioned Neanderthals I was just alluding to the fact that current day Science considers these people to be just one step out of the cave as in Neanderthals who have progressed to farming instead of just hunters.

    How could they possibly do this?

    Particularly with their Advanced Knowledge of Astronomy without Telescopes!!! :lol:

    You would have to be a Neanderthal Not to know that there was Extraterrestial Intervention and in fact scientist do not really want to acknowledge what really happened here or what happened at Roswell. ;)

    Too Bad I Don't Know About The 80/20 Rule but when it was published I was indeed on a Extraterrestial Transport Device so I didn't get the MEMO!!! :)

    Too slow? Yeah because it's one guy doing one block. Egyptians were working with 14,000 to 40,000 people at once. Some doubters don't understand the magnitude of that many workers.

    ....Which was probably about 99% of the time. Almost nothing happened the way you think it did or were taught it did, especially when it comes to ancient history. My rule has always been, first doubt and then do your own research, hence my signature.

    The fact of the matter isn't if the show is %100 real or not, newsflash no show is %100 real, the news, so called reality TV, nothing is. Bottom line is many of us enjoy the show but are now forced to lose much of that enjoyment because it is now only in crap SD

    ive watched every episode of ancient aliens. it sucks watching it in sd but hopefully directv will add H2 in HD very soon.

    learning about our past & researching different theories that are out there is just fascinating! i like the ancient astronaut theory, especially the shows where they link it to the bible. seeing the artifacts and the ancient drawings that resemble modern day aircraft.... there has got to be something to that!

    To be fair, this isn't Directv's fault. The programmers at the History Channel decided to move it from the main channel to H2. But if the ratings for H2 improve, maybe Directv will be more interested in working out a deal to get it in HD.

    I too have watched Every Episode of "Ancient Aliens" especially the ones dealing with Extraterrestial Beings and fortunately I have every one of these recorded in HD so I can go back and watch them again and again as New Episodes are linked backed to an Older Episode.

    Kind of hard even if you are a Skeptic to doubt how all of these Pyramids were built and not just the ones in Egypt.

    How do you mine and quarry a 1100 Ton Granite Block and then move it miles and lift it up 200 feet and place it on another one. It Blows my Mind how this could be accomplished. It was not chiseled out with stone instruments but had to be done with a Laser like instrument and then Levitated to the site and the Levitated into place.

    I think one of the biggest flaw with shows like that or the radio show Coast to Coast AM is how dumb they make the people of ancient civilization out to be. Then again they also need the viewer to be dumb or uninformed to a large degree for people to buy into all the theories they have. Why were these ancient people so dumb? Because they cant run a computer or a cellphone?

    The other flaw is that ancient man had NOTHING ELSE TO DO but that project they were working on. These people had nothing but time on their hands. You cant put that into perspective of todays life the amount of real labor that went into these projects. You have got to think we are somewhat devolved today compared to a laborer from 4000 years ago.

    Then comes the thing about pyramids, why were they built all over the world in that shape. Maybe because the people learned long before that when the tried to stack blocks any other way they were not as stable as when you build each layer progressively smaller than the one below it. If built another way it would just be a pile of blocks today.

    Oh and Richierich please tell me you are trolling this thread at least just a little??? ;)

    Coming to DirecTV from Dish two weeks ago, I'm disappointed H2 is only SD on DirecTV.

    And you don't have to believe the premise of every show on a channel to be entertained by it. :D
