Re: The Rehabilitation of HNS Continues Apace!

didn't anyone think that they could be flung like a javelin? LOL. They did.... which would sort of mean that Heidelbergensis was more advanced that HNS which does not make a lot of sense since HNS was supposed to be the descendant of Heidelbergensis. I've noted before that I'm not overly convinced ...

Not a clue. Hard to tell much from a single photo, though.

Java Man not so old after all

https://cosmosmagazine.com/palaeontology/java-man-not-so-old-after-all The oldest human remains in Southeast Asia aren’t as old as we thought they were. An Indonesian-Japanese team of scientists has overturned a decades-old estimate of Homo erectus remains from Central Java in Indonesia, shaving off...

Re: Large Shipwreck Found Off Greece

I did a little comparative research.

In 1701 the Royal Navy launched HMS Royal Sovereign, a 100-gun first rate ship of the line. It's keel was 141 feet. Even HMS Victory, built in 1756, had a keel of only 151 feet.

Kind of puts this bullshit about Noah's "ark" in perspective!

They've failed to identify any concrete.

Stop trying to shoehorn facts into their fantasy. You can be such a killjoy, Circ!

Re: Contemporary Great Pyramid Document

Actually quite a lot of study went into that and there are variations, of course. Flinders-Petrie estimated 4 million blocks, for instance. But for the most part the range is between 2 and 2.8 million stones which is significant but until someone comes up with a reasonable explanation of how they ma...

Re: Contemporary Great Pyramid Document

The Japanese experiment was real enough, which was the whole point of quoting that passage. There was a Nat Geo special on it many years ago and they utterly failed. Far more recently Mark Lehrner claimed that he would use ancient technologies to remove and carve an obelisk. He ended up using jackha...

Re: Contemporary Great Pyramid Document

I recall reading an essay by an engineer who indicated that in order to support the weight of the stones and men pulling them the ramp envisioned ( a straight to the top ramp) would have been an even larger building project than the pyramid itself but would have to have been built of materials which...
