Newser reports that new studies indicate it might have been impossible for Stone Age Britains to move stones to the current site without special scientific help.

Read for yourself first story @ Source of Stonehenge's Rocks Pinpointed - And it raises questions about how the bluestones got to Stonehenge with link to Did humans transport Stonehenge rocks further than previously thought?

Clearly the authors have never moved with a spouse that wanted to take EVERYTHING from the old place to the new place. I suggest they start looking around for the remains of giant cardboard boxes with "U-DRAG" on them.

What's more likely...?

An alien species with technology far superior to our own came to earth, unnoticed to human history, moved rocks around and left without ever leaving a trace or any evidence, not even attempting to communicate with us...

Or...

A bunch of people figured out how to move massive stones?

Isn't it amazing how little some people think of just how inventive the human mind can be...

Their narrow-minded concept: ONLY ALIENS COULD HAVE BUILT IT

While this isn't exactly science, I'm letting the thread stay here for its entrainment potential
In other news, I saw an "expert" on Ancient Aliens claiming the pyramids were actually power plants. Who knew ?

Some of the first shows they did were actually pretty cool as there was some pretty cool places and things they discussed, just wish it lost the alien aspect...

Yac - just curious -- where do you think it should've been posted?
