How could it be done without the use of machines doctor? It's a simple question which your imposing a lack of imagination on me does not answer.

Unless it was done by magic then I am not sure how they did it is beyond our understanding regardless of the method they used.

So your answer to the question is....? Nothing.

Please be honest doctor. Regarding my "opinion" in your own words it was in reference to:
"Regarding the rest of your post, you're certainly entitled to your own opinion." which was about the whole "90%" business, curiously omitted from your response. Why do you try and make it something you know it was not?

But yes, it would be my "opinion" granite slurry would be made from crushing granite into the smallest pieces possible which given I don't think it is practical they used hammers and adzes for the more industrial component of the work I would certainly vote for the use of some kind of machine. Which could be quite simple, say something like this:
Though I don't think they made granite concrete, "slurry", in the least, I find the idea quite lame devoid of any evidence or practicality whatsoever, but if I were to imagine such things, yes, I think they would have crushed it first little different in principle than we do today. But since I have no imagination maybe you can explain a way they would make granite slurry without the use of machines.

I asked you a simple question doctor which your hystrionics and personal attacks on me seem to be nothing more than a smoke screen to avoid the inequity of your reasoning. No one is "picking a fight" and if you have an alternative to machines I may well agree with you for all you know, but instead of giving one you go on an unsolicited tirade.
