I'm not sure what you guys know about the "simple physics of matter" (let's not forget that Newton thought he had it all figured out, but then came Einstein), or what it is that makes you so eager to write off the possibility of any other principle in physics that we just might not be aware of yet because of the limited capacity of that tiny 3 pounds of fat, water, and protein between our ears. I highly doubt our human brains could actually fathom every force of Nature in the universe. It's very clear that our bodies have a very limited capacity to confront Nature and that other species are far better than humans at confronting some forces of Nature.

What's so amazing is that you can't see all the assumptions you yourself are making in the course of your narrative. According to you, we must all be lockstep with you about crushing/pulverizing the stone, how it was crushed, the use of a binder. You talk about there being no need for some "magical as-yet-hitherto-unknown-technology", but in the same breath neither of you actually have the remotest clue what technology was used to produce much of that stonework.

And yet you are so quick to dismiss anyone else's notions about simply softening stone as if that necessarily requires "magic".

"Blah, blah, blah" indeed.
