Building Stonehenge

Engineers have always marveled at how the ancients were able to pull off some of the most amazing architectural feats. The Egyptians used ingenuity and slave labor to build the massive pyramids, and the same could be said about the Babylonians and the hanging gardens in Babylon.

However, what about those smaller monuments like Stonehenge? The giant, multi-toned stones would take an army of men to move, right? Additionally, the typical evolutionary mindset is that mankind was not evolved enough to pull off building something like Stonehenge. The way the evolutionary mind works, you would think engineering giant structures is only something of the 20th century. The Art Bell crowd will go so far as to claim aliens had to have done it, or the builders used some lost super anti-gravity technology of Atlantis or what ever.

Well, in Michigan, there is a fellow - a retired engineer none the less - who is attempting to reproduce the famous Stonehenge with one of his own in his backyard. He is doing it largely by himself, using simple techniques he believes were similar to how the folks built the original over across the pond. I bet it is also the same way that Ed fellow down in Florida built his Coral Castle.

No aliens were harmed during the making of this video...

Hello from Flint. He must be retired :)

Hope you and Brenda and the kids are doing well.

Well bud,
I think he is up there around your neck of the woods, so maybe you can track his progress. I find his techniques fascinating.

Haha... "stone hendge reloaded".

Amazing, I think he might be not far from the truth on that. However, there might have been a few more then just one person doing it too :).

That is truly impressive. It certainly makes you think. Ad think that those who say aliens must have been involved are even bigger nutcases than I thought to begin with.
