Nazca Lines
#11
Awesome post, drblow! As always, you present a lot to think about.

You had mentioned the crystal skulls, Jake....there was a thread about them here on TP, let me check if I can find it....

http://www.talkparanormal.com/thread-2478.html

That might give you some more information there, Jake. And thank you for bringing up the topic of the Nazca lines. It's not something I was interested in before now...I appreciate it!

The scpetic view of Nazca is usually based on "how" the lines were created ... the link above to an article on the Skeptic's dictionary does the same. The issue for many is not "how" the lines were made, but "why". Sceptics have yet to come up with a satisfactory explaination for this.

Alien runways? Perhaps, far out, but perhaps.

Dedications to "gods" who live in the sky? Maybe.

There are alot of things about ancient cultures that point to some kind of knowledge about, or contact with, beings from the sky. The Christian bible is full of references to things that live in the sky (or "heavens") or came down from the sky to interact with humans, like angels and of course, God.

There are many cave drawings, Sumerian drawing, Aztec/Maya/Inca drawings that seem to represent beings from the sky.

Another point of interest that comes from the Chariots of the gods is the Piri Reis map - it depicts almost exactly the outline of the continents and was drawn in 1513 apparently. Especially weird is the fact that it contains a map of Antarctica whihc some say could only have been achieved by some arial exploration, not only that but it maps the landmass of Antarctica that currently lies under ice, which modern maps did not discover until the 20th century. Estimates say the last time thge landmass was exposed was before the last ice-age. Weird, huh? Icontexto-emoticons-01-032x032

Hey Jake ... you keep doing what you are doing pal! But, two things ...

1) NEVER believe a TV show - use it as a refercne point and then add your own research. A huge amount of "history" channel etc. shows are extremely biased. In order to get TV broadcast they must remain within acceptable limits. Your own research will enrich any subject.

2) DO NOT, under any circumstances, give up on music!! Music, and musicality, enhances the brain's cognative ability, making you smarter. And cool.

Wow. Thank you for the encouragement for my son. I think he was just really excited when he said that about music. It's in his blood. It's impossible for him to give it up. lol.
We just bought The Chariots of the God and I have just started reading it. That program he watched got him so excited. I will have him log on and read your advice. Very kind of you. Thanks again.

Interesting sort of situation, lines on a flat plain, best seen from the air. Ah, there is the rub, if they had to get up there, the sky, how? Seen the "hot air balloon" theory, which looks good. Wonder why they did it? One place looks like a landing strip, if so, for what were they expecting to land? No idea as to the '"spider" that is laid out also. Had to take some time, no doubt, no idea how many people were involved? More questions than answers.

My thoughts exactly.

Heaven was the Realm of the Gods, so it makes sense that these monuments were made (only) to be viewed from above.

Jake, You are into a wonderful area and soo interesting. My best friend is a forensic anthropologist and archeologist with the Smithsonian institution. He gets to go to these places and do research on all types of things like this, all over the world. He is also a Sensitive and his heritage is Native American. Grandmother is a shaman. (He earns pretty good money, doing something he loves!) Keep up the interest. There is a lot out there for you to research!

Really like some of the ideas, that seemed workable anyway. I still doubt there was an religious cause/effect relationship there...unless men from space , who were landing ,were thought of as "gods" then some of it makes some sense,if you let your imagination run just a little wild for a bit.

ok we all remember the 4 w's from what we learned back in school but im going to throw out( h) how did the ancient people do it? i do remember a gentleman that was interveiwed awhile back and he owns a huge quarry and all the huge trucks and diggers and such he said that it would take about 3-6 years to flatten a mountain top to be able to do this and thats with modern equipment mind you ...now here's my question what type of equipment did the ancient people have to do these lines? and where did they as a people get the math from to do these lines to perfection ? just as the ancient people from egypt did. there must be a complete logical answer to these questions

A grid system would allow you to enlarge a drawing with ease, as you would do each part using smaller & much simpler areas. You need never see the larger picture. But you could believe your gods would.
Straight lines are easy, You just use rods of wood. A length of wood never gets any longer or shorter with moisture or age, only wider or narrower. A measuring rod & three staffs would all it would take to produce a grid.
The Romans use a pole with plumb bobs on it to create it's forts etc.

ok i go for that but who did the math and where would they have gotten the wood nasca is desert there are so many questions to be asked and where do you start and with what people the nasca tribes or the inca tribes ? i know i wouldn't know where to start and every glyph is far far to perfect

Even in Neolithic times traded items travelled hundreds, even thousands of miles.
A grid takes no real maths other than counting, straight lines are easily understood & just because we do not take the time to get things right, why assume they would not? As getting things right is about time, thought, effort & trail & error.
Many modern scientists are people who are theoretical rather than practical. There for to many modern scientists simple practical exercises are more difficult to achieve than explain.
The theory of how to make fire is simple, but few can actually achieve it at a practical level now without modern methods.
Often we choose to over complicate things, by thinking in modern terms. They had man power & time to think, practice & try. As they were not held back by the latest academic paper needing to be read or a new episode of some reality TV show needing to be seen.
