You've already stated you are biased against anything that doesn't support your own contention that other people did the Inca work - which in most cases is true as the Inca had other people do their masonry work and they were very very late to the stage and took over a great deal of existing masonry sites.

So refresh my memory, these other folks (presumably you mean cultures we already know about like the Killke?) how were they moving large stones around if not in that manner? Or is it you just don't want to credit the Inca with having done any stone work, even if by proxy?
