Hi Audrey

I'm at the 32:27 min mark of this vid and what strikes me as very odd is this photo...if one is going to extract a column from rock, you wouldn't finish it in situ ie: the walls of where the rock 'column' was removed wouldn't be sort of refined or polished in the shape of a column but would be squared off and finished w curve later. y/n? Hammer and chiseled in this way? Wouldn't it be much simpler (considering what this guy went thru to carve a baby elephant with modern tungsten chisel) [www.youtube.com] ) to simply remove in a haphazard manner and finish later? ...obviously my logic is correct but simply trying to give some perspective of how odd this one simple picture is and I understand that you also get this. ;)

Given how long and arduous the baby elephant creation was...if others watch these vids, it should be easily understood/recognized just how much labour would have had to been endured/employed in order to create all of the stonework demonstrated in these vids. It took Ronald Rae ( an artist btw) many months- and he really didn't remove that much material- in order to arrive at his granite work of art. Meanwhile...we have caverns of removed material and stucco'd walls in the Crete labyrinth. Bronze chisels guys...really?

Corps...want to take a crack at introducing some other form of 'logic' which keeps all of this work within normal orthodox explanations? Enigma's need to be solved but...none of this is logical given the tools we are supposed to believe achieved same. Armies of skilled people working with hand held chisels?

The cut marks that are displayed, shortly after the above min mark...considering the effort to cut mm's with the saws we are supposed to believe did this...seems just too stupid to believe this is what accomplished the work. Was every person in society focused on banging away at hard rock? Without modern cranes, we couldn't accomplish Baalbek temple. Even if they built contraptions to lift the rock 50+ feet up, to be placed on these massive columns, the question which enters my mind is always...how did they remove the ropes from the final resting position?

Just as a matter of interest...can you imagine the skill level of creating this simple dome that is in Syria?

[www.youtube.com] 11:22 min mark. Heavy as hell and yet so skillfully placed so as to remain in place to this very day. I often wonder what in hell happened to decimate these ancient places? Barring explosives...even sledgehammers would take a long time to accomplish this destruction. Always looks like massive catastrophic event.
