    Circular lakes: evidence of the War of Gods?

    Thanks Jd755, collapsing coal mines, huh? What I like about the picture is that we can see two craters cut clean in half by what must be a stream or creek going across the middle of the page, so we can see what they are made of and what's below them.

    Circular lakes: evidence of the War of Gods?

    I ran across this picture on an old computer, thought this thread was where it belonged. the caption was just "Kopki".

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    So it was not my intention to monopolize this thread and if my posts keep merging as they have been I will have a book written on here. Having said that, though... Lemme ax you dis... When we look at the stars through our personal viewing devices, such as telescopes, binoculars and cameras, we...

    Leonardo Da Vinci and his Micro-Brushes

    I don't have the answer and one can certainly smell something fishy, but I have a theory. Possibly this was a form of photography in which they did not have film, as we know it, that could change color when exposed to light. Instead they used something like a laser printer as you have suggested...

    Dinosaurs on the 1562 painting of Pieter Bruegel the Elder?

    Thanks for the link and yes, I've looked into Da Vinci's incredible work before. I'll make a comment over there.

    Dinosaurs on the 1562 painting of Pieter Bruegel the Elder?

    Well... until you zoomed in they could have been camels. I have to look at the rest of the detail in the picture though, for example the people, such as the ones riding the "dinos" look like orcs or zombies or ghosts. My thought is if that's as accurately as he could paint people then how can we...

    Circular lakes: evidence of the War of Gods?

    Ahh...science, or is it Science? The only thing Einstein actually did IMHO, besides denying the aether I guess, was to remove science from the people. Before Einstein anybody could do science but after him only people who could do long formulas on the chalkboard and had lots of letters after...

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    I expected someone to come back with the "falling to the Earth" argument, which I consider to be just obfuscation or a muddying of the water. Why would something fall? What causes it to fall? The conventional theory is that things fall because a force called gravity pulls them down, such as in...

    Stars of David on the US Flag

    I'm sure the Navy had just bought up a huge number of 13 star flags and wanted to keep using them until "they were all used up". Kidding of course, do you think there could have only been 13 states up until what they are calling the Civil War? It seems strangely appropriate that the stars on the...

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    Ooooh...this is a subject I love. And let me say up front that I believe (know) that NASA is nothing but a lie machine. So let me get down to proving it. An object in motion tends to stay in motion, in the same direction and speed, unless affected by a force. When we look up at the moon, we know...

    79 A.D. no more: Pompeii got buried in 1631

    @jd755 No one said these artists were warriors! The mini cannon is interesting but I wonder about the holy man in white and the black eagle. The holy man seems to be trying to protect Alexander, if that's who that is, with "good magic" from the darkness of the evil bird. An indication of a...

    79 A.D. no more: Pompeii got buried in 1631

    The thing that strikes me like an elephant in the room that everyone is trying to ignore is the big horse's ass in the middle of the Alexander the Great floor tile art and the painting. It even has the tail up so we can see the anus. Why would you have that in the picture, particularly right in...

    19th Century: The Boynton Bicycle Railroad

    Very cool, Banta. With my motorcycle background I'm very familiar with managing weight while cornering and that was one of the problems I saw with the bicycle railroad. During cornering a large part of the weight of the vehicle would try to lean outward and would fall on that upper rail, making...

    19th Century: The Boynton Bicycle Railroad

    I thought this might make an interesting addition to this thread. I happened to watch this video and right at the 5:48 minute mark in the video, so right before the end, there's a shot of a train, a bottom monorail, cornering the way you would have to if you didn't want to have that upper...

    Comment by 'Silhouette' in media 'Corner of State and Madison after the Great Chicago Fire, 1871'

    Its just my opinion, but I can't see that having been done by fire alone. It reminds me of pictures of Dresden after the Allied bombing. Maybe even Stalingrad.

    Foundlings and Orphan Trains: video by CONSPIRACY-R-US

    Possibly those children didn't take to the indoctrination. I have to wonder if a lot of the wars in the early 1800's and possibly the late 1700's weren't post reset clean up wars. And who knows what the timeline really was.

    Comment by 'Silhouette' in media 'The pincers of Vitruvius'

    Those large center pincers must be for sticking down into a hole and then they spread to grip the object since the teeth are on the outside. Maybe for large blocks into which they have drilled a hole. But they are not using this method with the crane in the previous picture.

    Comment by 'Silhouette' in media 'The way in which the large travertines and the other marbles were raised in the construction of the great Sepulcher of Cecilia Metella'

    That crane looks like it would rely heavily on what it was anchored to, are those just guys pulling on the anchoring ropes? It looks like it would take a lot of man hours to use and reposition. Maybe Piranesi exaggerated the size of the stone it is lifting? His drawings seem very precise.

    Comment by 'Silhouette' in media 'View of the rear side of the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella'

    Also interesting that they used large stones in the top construction over smaller stones in the middle. Most ancient structures, such as the temple of Zeus in Lebanon have the larger stones at the bottom.
