Sorry mate but Godzilla is a FICTION. Likewise so is it's shit.

Used up. But I am sure if I could be bothered I could find some pics for your outstanding collection.
Sorry , I am not going to bother.

Most likely most gold was panned. But why did they say the huacas told them were the gold was?

NO! Even the Mayans had heaps of gold. The Spanish took/stole it, not mined it!

Agreed . Definitely some are Andesite.

Geopolymer is a difficult term. Strictly not applicable in such case.

BUT EXACTLY.... how did they do it?
Some can be explained by pounders. Other things cannot.

The original OP dealing with geopolymer (artificial fabricated stone) was specific to two sites which has undergone detailed extensive scientific analysis.

I ought make it clear I am not suggesting everything is non natural stone. Most is natural stone (or combination). However rock softening and reconstitution tech, existed and known widely (across the world) in antiquity.

Anyway. You have not researched the technology. You and others are forgiven.

I simply used the vid title as thread title, not meant everything ancient is encapsulated in that term. There is serious debate in that area of science atm that the alkaline branch (one of many types) ought be called something different due to different chemical structure.

The Pantheon. There is NO WAY that would be standing if modern Portland cement was used. It was a brew of volcanic ash mixed with pumice which has lasted 2000 yrs (under immense strain). Some modern high tech concrete has failed in modern Australia (concrete cancer) in circa 50 years.

They observed nature . They had the recipes.





How did "they" do it "pounders and bronze chisels?
You have to be joking! LOL!


Cheers
