The impact would have altered the climate, creating massive famines and die offs. Each temple was possibly aligned toward a star that had a particular association with the deity resident in that building. The first practical steam engine was patented in 1698 by Thomas Savery, but it wasn't until James Watt's patent in 1781 that it really became a useful product. The pillar isn't exactly unique, either, but stands as a great example of their technological innovation when it came to iron-working. Major technological contributions from China include early detectors, , , the double-action , , the iron , the multi-tube , the , as fuel, the , the , the , the , the , and. Many scholars believe that the Ark of the Covenant, as well as other ancient artifacts, were actually electrical devices, some of which were worshipped in temples as oracles. Thirteen crystal skulls of apparently ancient origin have been found in parts of Mexico, Central America and South America, which comprise one of the most curious and mysterious archaeological finds of 20th Century.
This ancient civilization, pre-dating dynastic Egypt, was known as the Osirian Civilization. The Ancient Chinese seismograph Over 1500 years before the invention of the modern-day seismograph, Chinese scientists Zhang Heng managed to record an earthquake that originate 480 kilometers away. Were our ancestors far more capable than we give them credit for? It may not have been the intent of the makers of the pillar, but we could intentionally do it now based on the reversed engineering from the Kanpur Indian Institute of Technology. Many archeologists still hold to the concept that civilization as we know it dates from about 6,000 years ago despite the mounting new evidence, dating from the finds off Japan in 1997. They built canals and hydroponic garden cities throughout the ancient Yucatan Peninsula.
The newly emerged land joined the Poseid Archipelago of the Atlantic Ocean to form a small continent. These mechanisms were highly sophisticated and intricate for the era. The sudden heat would have melted copious amounts of ice virtually overnight and cause world wide flooding along ancient coast lines. Groundbreaking scientific experiments, inventions, and discoveries of the ancient world. The Wheel Although archeologists don't know for sure who invented the wheel, the oldest wheel discovered was found in Mesopotamia. Many of these inventions occurred late in the Greek period, often inspired by the need to improve weapons and tactics in war.
To sink something by 400 to 500 feet so that it was now underwater from above sea level would require an earthquake of a considerably greater magnitude than a 9. But these are atop a high mountain on treacherous terrain and they interlock so tightly that not even a sharp knife can be fit in the cracks between stones. But this is not a given. Two notable finds were the Nimrud lens and the famous Antikythera Mechanism. Is it possible that our ancestors re-discovered this lost technology and used it in their own lifetime? By , According to the conventional view of history, humans have only walked the Earth in our present form for some 200,000 years. Hapgood 1904—1982 was one of the first to publicly suggest that the Piri Reis map depicts Antarctica during a prehistoric time.
Only a few hundred miles to the south of Cuzco lie the fantastic ruins of Puma Punku, high in the Altiplano of Bolivia. Greek architects were responsible for the first true , and were the first to explore the and its relationship with geometry and architecture. It clearly has gears with triangular teeth just like a modern clock — only this was more than 1,000 years before any similar technology would emerge. Aluminum is generally processed from bauxite with electricity! Not only that, the Vedas and Egyptian hieroglyphs contains descriptions of devices that can be construed as planes, jets, helicopters, rockets and nuclear weapons. They are made by humans, who were living on earth and had the skill and knowledge to travel in space. The Greeks were unique in pre-industrial times in their ability to combine scientific research with the development of new technologies.
The precision fitting of stones was a relatively simple matter, he says. This raises even more questions. . He found that quarrying and dressing the stones could be accomplished using the stone hammers found in abundance in the area. They divided time up by 60s including a 60 second minute and a 60 minute hour, which we still use today.
The lines themselves have been proven to be sight lines for principle stars for certain times of the year. One had an incident in which 2000 workers became exposed to excess radiation, 300 of which had to be hospitalized. This is somewhat vindicated in the plethora of ancient small fetishes that look like contemporary jets. They did not have a compass, so they must have calculated the alignment using sophisticated algorithms. It had a body like a fuselage, seven inch wings that curve downward slightly, a fixed rudder and a tail. Many possible scenarios and theories have been put forward, from statements that Atlantis was a high tech civilization, leaving us an as yet undiscovered Hall of Records and the pyramid complex at Gizeh, to the possibility that the might be a prehistoric airport.
These weird cement columns can be found in the southern part of New Caledonia and on the Isle of Pines. However, instead of flowing into the Mediterranean Sea at the Nile Delta in northern Egypt, it continued into the valley, and then turned westward to flow in the deepest part of the Mediterranean Valley where it created a large lake and then flowed out between Malta and Sicily, and south of Sardinia into the Atlantic at Gibraltar the Pillars of Hercules. Furthermore, despite decades of searching, he seems to have been unable to find supporting evidence that the Sinai Peninsula is indeed strewn with nuclear debris. The 3,000 year old was discovered at the palace of Nimrud, in Iraq. The catastrohist Donald Patten argued that the ice formed during a close encounter with Mars as massive amounts of water from Mars rained down on the earth, following the magnetic lines of the poles. It is an archaeological fact that there are more than 200 known sunken cities in the Mediterranean. Others say such explanations ignore the mounting evidence that prehistoric civilizations possessed advanced technological knowledge that was lost throughout the ages only to be redeveloped in modern times.
