I agree with you but would go on to state that you can't cut granite, in any meaningful way, with the methods proposed by the current theories.

I'm not certain where you are at in regards to how you feel this was done or by whom? Do you honestly believe that animal horns or ancient copper tools had anything to do with the bulk of the work which was done? You believe that there was any sort of ancient advanced civilization that was wiped out Warwick? My view is to wonder at how anyone, given what has been presented in the past as a counter narrative for consideration, continues to believe in what is accepted currently as fact?

I snicker at it to be honest and find it hard not to ridicule given that I'm not supposed to be dealing with rookie investigators...

Comes across as arrogance but in reality...is incredulity ;) They do not carve out entire mountains with antlers and pounders. machines did this
