Just as well that you have arrived (valued contribution) so you can clearly, specifically, with references, fill in any lack or knowledge gaps.
I am will be grateful!

Most limestone is formed in such a fashion. I am aware of stalagmites and stalactites and corals etc.
However, you most likely know much more? Let's see, I believe you.
Or is there something else you are alluding too?

Most of the analysis of limestone used in ancient construction that I have seen reported and scientifically analysed, Davidovits, or Barsoum et al, DO have marine shells in them.

I noted from just one post in that ATS thread there was a rock section plate which showed none of such.
Where did that analysis come from? EXACTLY?
Can you link me up to other scientific papers discussing the make up of the stone. PLEASE.

So PLEASE be clear, do you think these walls grew themselves or you think it was harvested from caves and shaped OR WHAT?

Is your wisdom so profound and special that you just want to taunt the forum with cryptic clues?

Can you confirm or deny whether you are suggesting this arrangement developed in situ like that naturally? Do you think they are natural fissures and the rocks grew due to precipitation?

Do you not think they are man made ? WHAT is the answer????

If you look at the bottom then you will see the "central mass" is recessed.
I think the external coating geopolymer mix was a faulty mix and has weathered faster over time.

BUT I AM ALL EARS!!! , and extremely interested in your thorough explanation and source research documents (if you have any) , rather than just more cryptic clues.

Seriously interested
Cheers

EDIT PS

Barbelo, if your reluctance to be specific, is in any way related to your somewhat gnostic belief in the spirit world (Angels Demons etc in the higher realm). Then ,please do not let that retard your requested reply.
It will be given fair and serious consideration, and given it is Graham Hancock's site you are likely to get some 'thumbs up admirers and three cheers' but try to provide some evidence for your claims, whatever they are?
Don't be shy!
