Alien Series on Neflix

Ask a Question

Did anyone watch the alien series on neflix , it was interesting hearing the conspiracy theories to how gods might have been space travellers

One item on there did have me questioning things, how 50 tonne rocks were able to be stacked on top of each other to make monuments 3,000 years ago, when it would be virtually impossible to do this now even with modern heavy duty machinery ?

What do you think of this?

The same way they built the pyramids, with ramps, scaffolding, oiled logs which they heaved heavy objects along with manpower and ropes and pulleys.

Yes i have heard the theories , here is one scientists said was used to move 100 tonne rocks

This was done on ice though, for the pyramids on sand it would have been much harder requiring more man power

Its still amazing to think people thousands of years ago could have created the technology to do this

TerenceMealing cathedrals are a work of art and I doubt modern day builders could build anything anywhere near as huge and beautiful as those medieval stone masons.

Lynibis I think Liverpool Cathedral shows modern day builders can, perhaps even bigger and more beautiful!

Johnny I guess with everything it's a matter of like/dislike and I prefer the beauty of ancient buildings. I suppose in my clumsy way I was wondering if modern builders could build as well with only the tools medieval builders had. I have recently watched Pillars of the Earth for the third time, based on a Ken Follett book. It is a marvellous story with the building of a medieval cathedral at it's heart.

Lynibis I think you're right, today's builders would certainly struggle without modern tools, and such buildings would take centuries rather than decades to build. I doubt we have the cash (or enough believers) to build religious buildings that slowly anymore.

I'm still amazed when I see an 11th or 12th Century village church still standing. Some survivors are even older of course. As a child I lived in Norfolk for a bit. Norfolk has the largest concentration of medieval churches in the world (over 600 still standing). As a boy I was captivated by the number of village church spires I could see around me from one spot within a small radius. Seven was my record I think.

What's the highest concentration of churches you can see from one spot? Anyone know? I mean within a small radius (say 3 miles), not standing on top of the South Downs with a 20 mile view!

I suspect it will be somewhere in Norfolk.

70,000 years ago the solar system had another star pass close at less than 1 light year, Scholz star I think it was called and over millions of years maybe many other stars passed even closer to our sun. There has likely been many times when travel between our system and another star system has been much easier. You wonder if any of these star systems had planets with lifeforms that had developed technology and could visit Earth.

When you look at what are ancestors were doing around that time it was the development of early structures and tools.

Timeline here;

Interesting that the arrival of Scholz and man's development of basic tools and structures are so close in the timeline.
