The examples in the first 3 minutes of this vid...should make everyone question what they believe to be true ie: that this work was done by the Inca et al.

We've all seen these before but the scale and precision of the cuts (along with machine marks at various locations)...still sticking with orthodox explanations seems a little bizarre to me.

Try to do this work yourself with modern hardened chisels and steel hammers and then find a rock and attempt to make something similar. $100 bucks to someone who can video themselves completing a project which resembles what can be seen in vids like this. ;) Take a cheque?
