If it indeed was one of the famed Egyptian pyramids, what does that say about the possibility that the granite layer that covered the pyramids may have been engraved with symbols and whatnot. After seeing so many concepts of what the pyramids would have looked like with granite layer, I end up assuming they were polished and monotonous in their appearance. If so, I wonder what symbols they woul

Wouldn't any significant change in Earth's radius cause extreme magma flowage in the affected areas around the crustal plates do to the size differences of Earth? Maybe there is evidence to be found that such activities happened?

I just can't fathom the Porcupine Banks as being a realistic area, unless a major catostrophe almost literally flattened the island, relatively speaking. Even during glacial maximum. The land is so far below sea level there that I don't believe the glaciers would have sucked up enough water to lower the sea level enough to expose any land whatsover. I'm fascinated by a good mystery, but I jus

When it's night time, when hunting/fishing/gathering/farming time is all limited or not possible at all, what else would be as fascinating to the ancients as the stars in the sky? They all mostly lived in complete darkness unlike today's societies that are polluted by light at night time. Over centuries of being able to watch how all the stars move throughout the course of a single night or an

I think you just described another reason to consider this planets makeup of water. Water, when it freezes, expands. Maybe, under a crusty frozen layer, there is a big liquid ocean (like already hypothesized). However, maybe this ocean is slowly freezing closer and closer to its core...thus, more frozen water equals a growing moon. Makes sense to me anyways. :)

Elizabeth, Yes, you are correct in saying that when you are looking at my picture that the red line is the linear time line we view ourselves as being on. Also, I think you are a bit confused on the circular time cycle also shown. Picture a circle. Then picture a straight line going through the middle of it. The straight line is what we view ourselves to be on, and the circle is the circular

I apologize for the large photos. They aren't large when posted on his site, so he must be using some sort of template that automatically sizes them down. I can't find an edit button, or I would have removed them. I recommend going to the Photo Gallery link posted as well for more pics.

I haven't seen anything posted about this (sorry if mentioned already), but there was an intersting show I saw on TV about James Turner's travels to Robinson Crusoe Island in the Pacific. On a past trip there, he witnessed something that caught his eye. He had limited time to spend there, as he was on his way somewhere else I believe, but was fairly convinced that what he saw was a monument o

Interesting, but I'm not convinced it isn't water/ice/slush/whatever. I've seen my own pond do this during winter, which is on a much smaller scale than a moon, but the same physics should apply.

That is a very interesting piece there. It makes a lot of sense having witnessed the physics of wet clay before. It can be very compact and yet very slippery when wet. You would need a lot of clay and a lot of water to maintain that "track" that they would have used. That doesn't explain why they didn't finish the job or why they would have just left, though, either. Also, assumi

Is this picture a good representation of what you are trying to say, Elizabeth? I'm trying to figure out what you mean exactly. Points A and B are theoretical start and end points that really don't need to be there. You can consider the time circles to be present before and after these end points. Also, consider time to actually be moving along the dark line, and the lighter line is the the

This is a something I often ponder. It's basically a question of opinion. When it comes to figuring out what Ancient Egypt and all it's historic work were about, do you think that someone (anyone) has correctly hypothesized the true history of it all? This question can be asked for anything that we are uncertain about, but Ancient Egypt is a popular topic. I know this doesn't shed any light

Well, how the heck did they build those things? Haha... I'm no expert by any means. I've recently become consumed with wanting to know more about ancient civilizations, and know very little compared to the standards most of you bring to the table around here. Most of your conversations just go right over my head. I'm 23 with a degree in Air Traffic Control, so I don't have a collegiate backgr

Thanks, I figured it was probably talked about here, but didn't know where to begin looking without remembering any names. Do y'all think it's probably the best theory out there as of yet? I myself find it hard to believe that they'd have used large ramps that either spiral outside or go in a stright line. There'd be a ton of evidence supporting that if it was the case.

Before I had to work today I found a National Geographic program that featured an American Egyptologist (forget the name) looking at a theory of a French guy who was trying to solve the building of the Great Pyramid. The French man devoted his life to figuring out how the Great Pyramid was built...quit his job and everything. He was almost out of money, but had a revolutionary idea when a Frenc

About 8-10 years ago, I heard a theory that explains many of the "happenings" of ancient years. Some of you can probably shed some light on who it was (if it actually isn't one of you). I'm 23 now, so I was in my mid-early teens when I heard it, so what I know is quite vague. Anyways, here's a cliffnotes version of what I remember: -Pangaea existed much more recently than scientists
