I know some of the inner stones in the pyramids were up to 80 tons, but those are the largest I have heard of...I know there are statues and obelisks that reached those weights, but they just had to be transported, then raised upright.

So um, how did the Egyptians build the pyramids and statues on Mars? Oh yeah, that's right, no such thing exists...

The massive stones at the Baalbek platform havealways amazed me and so does Gilgal Rephaim ("Circle of the Giants").

Agreed. I have no idea how some of those megaliths were lifted, but they found a way.

I challenge anyone to lift some of the blocks with the tools we have found in ancient times. No suggested tools, but tools we know for a fact they used.

I also challenge anyone to do the same thing as pumapanku with the tools we have found. Oh, right... we haven't found any.

How about Gobekli Tepe? No tools found their either.

They found a way without leaving evidence... I thought all things had evidence? I guess without evidence, they don't really exist or they just magically appeared.

What no answer? Could it be that just because something is lacking evidence, does not disprove it? Could it be that something could exist without evidence?
