Mysterious ancient constructions of the East and Mesoamerica seems a little fantastic, perhaps because of their exoticism. Skeptics can “grasp” that idea and declare that ancient temples of the Mayans and the Sumerians simply because seem to be something supernatural that belong to alien cultures, but because we (Caucasians in this case) perceive them “his” perspective and can’t objectively assess the level of development of ancient civilizations. Perhaps this is so. But, referring to mental differences cannot explain the mystery no less remarkable buildings in Europe, of Course, is that we have not figured out their purpose and do not understand how our ancestors were able to create a similar, possessing only primitive technologies that does not give us the right to declare them the work of extraterrestrial civilizations. However, there are no other scientifically based theory, this assumption cannot be discounted.
Example of mysterious ancient structures in Europe can serve as Stonehenge.

In France, on the Atlantic coast — the whole field from thousands of these megaliths, built in parallel rows for miles. In addition, the megaliths are of different types: Nordic seids, the Nuraghe of Sardinia, the Atlantic corridor of the tomb of Europe, which is often now called in Breton Karami; menhirs — standing stones-stelae; stone circles — stone circles; dolmens — tombs with pillars or walls of verticalnaya, usually covered with a flat roof.

Many have heard about the huge blocks of which are composed of an Egyptian pyramid, a smaller number know about the giant blocks were laid in the Foundation of the temple of Jupiter in the Lebanese city of Baalbek. However, with the fact that in ancient times there were certain ways of stone processing, is not available to the contemporaries are willing to accept very many.
Some common assumptions about how the people of ancient times were able to create as smooth blocks, thus having a Titanic mass can be divided into two: the influence of aliens or the existence of an advanced civilization of antiquity. Both assumptions are questionable.
However, everything in order. Let’s first consider the cases which cause confusion among historians and technical specialists. Besides those already mentioned pyramids and the Temple of Jupiter stands out the Aswan obelisk. This huge structure of antiquity was never completed because they were broken.
The scale is really impressive. What he carved on the spot, has given historians a reason to believe that also came with the most tremendous object is initially created at the quarry, then transported. Continue reading
