GIANT STONE HEADS
ANCIENT ADVANCED TECHNOLOGy
Hello once again!
So we are well on our way into the Christmas season; barbecues and family gatherings in the southern hemisphere; logs in the fireplace and gently falling snow in the northern hemisphere. And no matter where you are...we have taken with us as Christians the season for the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus.
In a way you can see the same thing occur in the artwork of our ancient ancestors. All around the world you can find very large stone carvings of human heads. The most famous of course in the Easter Island group. Let’s take a closer look…
Rimming Easter Island is nearly 300 statues of giant human heads with upper torsos. Weighting in on average at 14 tons most stand around 13 feet high. The current native population refer to these statues as “moai” and were not the ones that did the carvings.
There are several theories ranging from tributes to important chiefs to ceremonial conduits for communication with gods. The why may never be fully known but it is clear the people who carved and transported these statues were intelligent and had the technology to carve accurate human faces--which look almost look negroid in features--out of stone and then transport them (exactly how still befuddles us today) around the island.
In Mexico giant stone head statues ranging from 5 to almost 10 feet tall and weighing in at several tons are found at three important Olmec sites. It seems that the unfinished stones carved into round balls were what was transported making the total weight even heavier. The greatest distance these gigantic heads were moved was 80 miles. The heads were also thought to represent important chieftains or even athletes. Most were placed in ceremonial plazas and
Other places around the world where enormous stone heads have been carved with some being relocated/some carved in place include; Mount Numerate, Turkey; and Angkor Wat, Cambodia. All are connected in some way with ceremonial purposes and having negroid/oriental features.
Until next time, God bless and take care!
This week in the night skies; “Friday, December 13The Geminid meteor shower should be at its peak tonight, from 9 or 10 p.m. until dawn Saturday morning. The best viewing time is after your local moonset: in the hour before the beginning of morning twilight on the 14th. But bright meteors will show even through the moonlight earlier. The eclipsing binary star Algol should be at its minimum brightness, magnitude 3.4 instead of its usual 2.1, for a couple hours centered on 9:50 p.m. EST.”1
For the southern hemisphere; “A new nova has been reported near beta Centauri. It is currently bright enough (magnitude 5) to be seen faintly with the unaided eye, and very easily in binoculars. Unfortunately, you have to wait until early morning for the nova to be heigh enough for a good look. More detailed spotters charts and instructions are here.”2
