“You all can do whatever you like with that information, the point for me was to establish some sort of factual basis for saying the megaliths of Baalbek are older than the Romans instead of just looking at pictures of big blocks and making up whatever because no one thinks the Romans could do it or not.

If this is the case Lee, I suggest dropping the references to Amenhotep III, oops I mean Solomon, and, also, the epic of Gilgamesh, and just talk about the verifiable archaeology. I don’t think your points 1 and 3 help your argument; they are distractions. IMHO.
I agree with you that if we could disassemble Roman Baalbek, we would probably discover much more evidence of earlier construction. But that is probably true at most archaeological sites.
