The Megalith Builders: the True Creators of Civilization?
The Alignments of Carnac are near the coasts of Brittany (NW peninsula of France), and constitute the largest and most spectacular megalithic monument in the world. This extraordinary complex contains more than 3,000 standing stones, huge granite menhirs aligned in several rows along approximately 4 km, divided into three main modules and a last one much smaller and degraded.
Many hypotheses have been raised, some really unusual, to explain the purpose of these alignments; for example, an antiquarian of the last century suggested that it could be the fossil of a large snake. Others suggested that it might be a Roman camp, or a way to temples disappeared, or even a prehistoric earthquake detector. A local legend says that they were Roman soldiers petrified by God while they were chasing St Cornelius, the local saint. Alexander Thom proposed, as he did with many other megalithic monuments, that they could have been an ancient astronomical observatory.
However, the most accepted hypothesis is that they formed a huge necropolis; in fact, in the vicinity of the alignments there are several mounds with a more obvious funerary purpose, such as that of Saint-Michel, one of the oldest megalithic constructions.
A colossal monument such as the Alignments of Carnac necessarily requires an equally colossal labor in its construction. Archaeology is faced with the dilemma of finding a megalithic society that complies with the grandeur of its monuments. What type of social organization would allow such a display?
Is it too unreal to suggest a relationship between Carnac and the megalithic sites on the neighboring island of Great Britain, such as Avebury and Stonehenge?
We should keep in mind that we are talking about initial phases of construction dated on the fourth and third millennia BC, i.e. the European Megaliths Builders preceded those considered as the earliest civilizations, those of Mesopotamia and Egypt.
' These were SIGNS among them ( Ancients megalithis builders ) , when their children (also us)asks in time to come , saying , WHAT MEAN YE BY THESE STONES ? ' Joshua 4:6 We can conquer or pass through waters and fires(floods and sun storms) which ended many past civilizations. You can learn how to be conquerers from saviours like yeshua , Jehovah . Jewish god Jehovah is a messiah , saviours type .
Maybe a vast workforce is not actually necessary. I have been conducting experiments for many years now and know for a fact that a 12 ton block of concrete can be moved very efficiently by as few as 12 men, using simple wooden levers although 18 men make the job so much easier. How? Visit my website themegalithmovers.org for the answer. You will find a short film clip of some of my earlier experiments and news of my next experiment which will be to erect a 9 ton Obelisk onto a raised plinth. click on "raising an obelisk".
