Hi Racho

I would be happy to give it a shot but a few things first:

1. What video at 32:27? The first one top new posted vlad007? shows a half drill hole no column. Alternately the subject of OP vid only goes to 32.24?

2. I don't know how many times I need to emphasise I DO NOT think all stone workings are correctly described by orthodox archaeology.
There are many, many enigma's all over the world.

However, IMHO, these folk do themselves harm or detract from their objective by; including workings that can easily have rational modern day explanations (more when you advise the correct time stamp); AND including things that clearly have been photo shopped; or not showing the full honest picture (eg 1:51 of the OP vid shows clearly there is a wide open entrance to the claimed "cave").

Pls check your timestamp ? or better post the screenshot?

Cheers
