But how on earth could you possibly know that? Life has been on earth allegedly for 3 billion years. Humongous beasts once roamed the planet which managed to survive with a fair amount of "figure it out" intelligence until a natural catastrophe wiped them out around 65 million years ago. But you think you have even the slightest inkling of what "mundane" tools and methods were used by any intelligent mason since the very beginning?
And you don't consider that to be a "bias"?

How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
