I asked about the "boat"...I want to know the "species" of the wood. Is this asking to much.

This whole thing could be proved/disproved with the publishing of some very simple metal testing. Take 15 minutes. As far as the boat is concerned, that is solved with one dive to the boat, call in a dentrologist, wait for his species indentification and tree ring dating (with C14 for approx. age), and finally call in an "antiquity boat building" expert to comment on the structure and b

FOOT DRAGGING...I'm waiting to see if the gov't gives a "dive" permit...I think its amazing. In Greece, they provide "permits" the second a wreck is found. In Nova Scotia, all diving is BANNED, period. So, being a minor conspiracy kind of guy....something is really really "a foul" here. The lack of "aggressive" gov't interest in this, is really telling....I

I'm waiting for the "white paper". Hutton has 50 pieces of evidence. As far as the boat is concerned, that is so easy its an absolute no brainer. All you do is call up an "dendrologist", have him dive on the boat, film him cutting off pieces of wood, analysis of structure and species. Then everybody can be done with it and move on. The time for the proper dendrological testin

Jason Colavito published pictures of different "knockoffs" and other junk. He has done no XRF testing on anything nor did he do any chemical engineering on the junk. Until he does, he is just another internet blogger who has no credentials to be posting articles regarding "chemical content". He is left with posting "OPW" (other people's work). He has provided nothing

Don't you think its really ironic. The finders are accused today of pulling off a hoax years ago (the family must just a whole pack of liars) even before this heated up. The climate has been so poisoned that nobody can get anywhere. The chemical testing in the "white paper" will have to be taken as scientific. I will wait for the paper. It will be up to the "academics" to disp

just a thought --- is this a possible condition - exfoliation "Some geologists believe that exfoliation results when rocks formed at depth are exposed at the ground surface; the previous compressional forces would decrease and thus allow the rock to expand by fracturing parallel to the surface" knowing that the sphinx came from one solid piece of bedrock ----

What I'm not seeing here (could have missed it) is the fact that the granite of Puma Punku was shattered and scattered over great distances. Taking the weight of the rock,the force needed to break it and then to "throw" it 100's or 1000's of feet ---- something really really big hit it and we have nothing in the "collective" history of this planet except scattered stories.

I still don't have the dates or the "Roman God-Figure" proven and named. And what about those 40,000 workers bees that materialized out of no where. Don't you think the "Jews" would have been PO'd enough they would have written something. I can't think of where the worker bees would have come from. Say, come to think of it, weren't the Roman's up to their eyeballs in wars

can you prove me with the "mechanism" the Roman's used during Herod's time for the construction of 600 ton rocks. And how come the records of the "Jews" don't even mention any of this. Was it so mundane that it wasn't even worth the time to write a description of it all.....

I don't buy into any of it...If we know so much about the Roman world why is this author even talking about the rope/pulley system. He has a cute picture but my first question would be - How did they set the first stone if they needed all of those mechanicals to set the second stone? And back to the time frame..did the Roman's leave in their own hand the written mechanisms for this. I think n

...According to Alouf (1949), to move the Stone of the Pregnant woman would require a team of 40,000 men, an effective impossibility of concentrated humans with the needed coordination.... from your post above..so where is the Roman Record did they get the food to feed these guys....and the appropriate women for the Roman guards...sorry, I don't buy into this at all.

I still don't have the dates and which Roman Emperor (Caesar, God Figure, Dictator, General, etc etc) did this. Starting to lose patience. On the verge of trashing this Roman thing today....Dates please..... And as a side note, could you provide which Roman Legion was responsible for security...You know, those damn slaves just kept getting uppity all the time....

There was time, not too long ago, when geologists and a host of non-geologists said the floods of the Columbia Valley were impossible but then never explained the gigantic rocks in the middle of the Washington Scablands. The rocks, they said were "always" there (the composition of the rocks meant nothing). And they also failed to explain "Hell's Canyon" (America's deepest rive

I think that Origyptian is thinking big enough. I also think that some other members aren't. To even MOVE these rocks, a person must think really big.

It really doesn't matter what the Egyptologist or Carson has to say. I only count the science. Show me how the rocks were cut, moved, set, and when. The first question should be "when". This is the realm of the ancient study of meteorology and the work of archaic meteorologists. You don't have the weather, you don't have people. And the number of people to be feed was huge. They didn't

I too am glad to see an engineer on board. Sites like this always tend to be short of personal who have the time, education, and experience to look at these situations. As noted, other sites in Egypt, etc. show all of this quarrying going on but there is absolutely NO indication of 1) travel routes 2) road beds 3) support vehicles for such weights 4) NO record other then some pictures (

I think that people just don't look (or refuse to look) at the resources researchers such as yourself use. Its a case of "shooting the messenger" and not looking at the force behind the messenger. In the case of Richard Firestone, D.S. Allan, et.al., M. M. Mandelkehr, Paul A. LaViolette Ph.D., Patrick McCafferty and Mike Baillie. This is just to list a few --- to question of researcher

I see a very active reading list here. I do have several of your books (I just have to read them. A few others got in the way). Anyway, what I see missing from the list are the science side on the meteors and there were many.. The book I think that should be covered is by Firestone (The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes) and the paper that should be read closing the arguments on the meteor hit is f

I'm not really upset --- just very leery that we will get to see the whole complex from top to bottom -- what, I think, they need in there are not archaeologists but rather mining engineers, surveyors, and material processing people. The work to be done is on par with professionals who are mining and tunneling experts who are trained and work in those professions. She is just fabulous in what
