The riddle of the large stones
Thursday, March 19, 2009
In Lebanon, about 86 kilometers northeast of Beirut, are the ruins of the temple complex of Baalbek. On a hill in the Bekaa Valley are temples to be found by various civilizations and in different periods built. When the Romans from 64 BC. Jupiter built their temple, and that the Phoenicians (from 323 BC.) their temple in honor of Baal put, all buildings that were much, much older. Historians estimate that the first building set back of some 5000 years ago, thousands of years before the Phoenicians and Romans down areas are the place to Heliopolis was renamed. The most remarkable, however, this temple complex is the temple of Jupiter. Not so much because of the architecture of the Romans, but more because of the stones on which the foundation of their temple laid. These stones dating from the first and builders are simply enormous. So huge, that no civilization was known that these stones in place was able to. Even so huge that the current time these stones could be placed ...
It is also known as the enigma of Baalbek: an accumulation of huge stones, placed by an unknown civilization around 5000 years ago. A special structure that also is placed upside down, ie: huge monoliths from a document placed on smaller (but still huge) on smaller stones that rest. The big toes stops (the trilithon), the largest processed rocks on Earth: three perfect rectangular carved megaliths, each more than 1,000 tonnes. We are talking 5000 years ago, when copper and bronze were the only metals that these stones could try to edit. Apart from working with these huge stones, the mystery of how they are exactly in their place: the temple complex is on a hill 1150 feet high and the whole environment is uneven and rocky surfaces and has no right to create a slope or a firm that could support machinery to block it. Even when you ongelooflijker is the enormous weight of the blocks in mind is: the three largest blocks were each more than 1,000 tonnes of heavy and in the quarry half a mile away a block to wait that between 1200 and 1500 tonnes of heavy and where it is apparently not increased to the hill to transport. Moreover, the blocks under the three megaliths are no gravy: nine blocks of 450 tons were also perfectly carved, transported and then seamlessly put in place.
n the middle of the wall is the trilithon evident. In addition, the smaller brick work of the Romans. Note the difference of the seams between the stones.
The largest monolith in the world is still in the pit waiting for transport to the Baalbek complex
It is clear that this achievement was impossible when you have the marketing knowledge and expertise that we believe that this early people had. The board is still more laughter when we remember that such a performance itself today virtually impossible. Even though the area tidy flat bulldozers to heavy machinery better access to (not what happened), the question is whether the strongest crane which is currently in the world would be able to lift the blocks and in place without breaking them. The largest crane moving at the moment has a maximum lifting capacity of 1200 tons, weighs himself several hundred tons and costs a couple weeks to spot in together. One can with some certainty that it was not available on such machines and also certain that such blocks with muscular and trees not only in their place were available. To have but not to have the precision with which the blocks carved and placed, without a means to add just put together as appropriate, that no seams between the playing card between to get to.
The pyramid of Cheops and other monuments
The same inexplicable building we see in various places around the world. Since the early Stone Age were huge blocks carved on large distances and then used in temples and monuments. Stonehenge is a famous example where megaliths of 50 tonnes in quarries were carved, which from 40 to 230 kilometers far from the prehistoric monument. Then the blocks were put on display, with about seven meters in height was. The pyramids on the Giza Plateau are equally enigmatic: processed 2.3 million blocks of limestone and granite, between 2.5 and weighed 50 tonnes and with incredible precision were stacked to the pyramid of Cheops to almost 150 meters high and 230 meters wide. Even regardless of where the temples were built, the state of the art of the Egyptians was an impossible project. The Egyptians had only copper and bronze implements the soft limestone for effective processing, to the hard granite, but not to speak.
How these enormous stones processed, transported and could be placed is still a mystery. The pyramids of Giza are the most fodder for speculation, but all theories to the construction of the Giza pyramids to explain so far proved impossible. For instance, some researchers suggested that the Great Pyramid was built using a large inclined plane. This would be raised up the stones and the growth of the pyramid would always be higher. Some have even on a staircase like a spiral staircase to the pyramid would fidget. The fact is that such a slope more than 17.5 million m 3 of material would require, which is seven times more than the pyramid itself. This would not be sand, because it was not strong enough to withstand the weight of such stones and the workers to contribute. This would be much stone to use. Where all that material had to come from is not known. Even where all that material would have remained after the pyramid was finished. This is also a mystery that is not explained by the theory. Finally, such an operation a multiple of the number of workers required in all likelihood still is. Other theories that speak of various structures and elevator systems leverage in recent experiments to enable them to simulate all failed. Even with modern equipment, the construction of the pyramids incredibly difficult, for about the cost just did not.
At the top of the pyramid of Cheops are still remnants of the cap stone to see that once covered the entire pyramid. There were 115,000 of these smooth polished limestone slabs at the exterior of the pyramid placed each weighed more than 10 tonnes
There are lots of examples on the earth to spread. In Tihuanaco, Bolivia, were huge blocks of stone from 150 to 400 tonnes over a distance of 50 miles transported and placed about 15 miles from Lake Titicaca. From this pre-Inca city, said that more than 2,000 years ago was built, but other researchers place the city much further back in prehistory. This actually brings us all megalithic structures against historians and archaeologists, the buildings and their makers do not place in history. There are many signs that indicate much older civilizations than hitherto assumed, highly developed civilizations that up to twelve or fifteen thousand years back. These civilizations are not only outside any existing history books, they had clear about technology that we have only now able to match. However, these monuments there are, after all this time, and nobody knows who or what they had put down, or how and why.
The orthodox scientists and researchers have apparently no problem with this mystery a mystery to do and occasionally even bother with half baked theory that are immediately in the trash can. Alternative theories attempt to fill this gap and meet the various declarations. For example, an old race of seafaring people - some Atlantis - the architectural knowledge (and more) spread over the continents. Others talk about extraterrestrial interference. Others speak of giants who "cyclopische" buildings are put together. Anyway, it is clear that the Egyptians and South and Central American nations this knowledge have been fully developed, because there is no evidence that this knowledge is progressively developed to the level that the temples of the Maya, Inca 's and Egyptians show. This knowledge was suddenly there and was suddenly gone. Who also have been, their structures are proof that an advanced civilization on Earth has existed in a development that was close to ours and in some areas even further. For many researchers it is difficult to digest because the history books no longer correct, but stones of about 1,000 tonnes are still many more substantial reasons than a handful of half-baked theories.
