Having NDN ancestry, I always sorta disliked the belief that aliens from another world HAD to have been involved in things my ancestors created, as they were too stupid to come up with anything on their own. Still, I'm a big fan of 'Ancient Aliens' TV show. Could be something to the 'Star People'.

Exactly! J.M. Adovasio, one of the world's leading archeologists is on record for stating that very notion. Old stereotypes & prejudices kept the Native Americans of both continents from being acknowledged as the architects of the new worlds amazing ancient monuments.

Ancient peoples were NOT backwards! They just lacked the technologies of today. The reason they were able to create some of the seemingly impossible feats back then is they had a dedication to purpose that today's artisans no longer can or will do. ╦╦C

Scientist who are studying the pyramids now believe they are NOT 3k years old (like we have been taught) but instead their 12k + years old .:dontknow:
An “audacious autodidact” theorizes this. He also has a book he’s selling regarding this theory, There is a big difference between that and a scientist. Am I way off??

The truth is we will never know. All the rest at this point is a speculation.
I respectfully disagree with your first statement. I don’t think you can say that with absolute certainty. There is a wealth of information covered in sand in Egypt that may very well solve that mystery. They tended to leave behind quite a bit of written materials. We may find the instruction manual!

Here is (was) a single piece of stone in Aswan, Egypt that workers were fashioning into an obelisk. The natural flaws in the rock cracked and they abandoned it. Estimated weight is 2,400,000 pounds. Would have been the largest freestanding monolithic monument known.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Obelisk2.jpg

Hand tools (no iron). Just a LOT of manual effort and knowing how to work the natural grain of the rock. Make little holes along the proper feature and drive wedges in to split along nice, flat planes. Then use small rocks to polish surfaces flat.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unfinished_obelisk#/media/File:Obelisk-Quarry-detail.jpg

In modern times - if you want to see what a LOT of people can do without machinery look up the Chinese Nationals making airstrips for the American Volunteer Group (i.e. "Flying Tigers") around 1939. Hammers and buckets to make gravel from stone to fill and grade runways. All just human labor.

He has a right to his opinions like everyone else. Agree or disagree at our wish. Main stream "scientists/archeologists" doggedly promoted the now debunked "Clovis First" theory for 6 decades absolutely trashing any archeologists/scientists who dared to propose anything differently. How many years of research were lost because no one dug below the Clovis level being told that there was nothing to find there? Now we know there is an enormous amount of pre Clovis material being found and researched. Food for thought.

I was hopeing someone who is better informed would chime in with a lot more info!!
Don't think any members are quite that old...L.o.l..

Could one piece atop another be cha cha'd back and forth to wear them smooth and tight/flat?

About all I have to ponder with half an idea derived at from elsewhere is why a quarry is important. Being stone quality underground is different in integrity and workability compared to material exposed above ground.

Here's an idea of how blocks could be isolated and removed from a quarry.

The foundation stones of temple mount in Jerusalem are huge, the largest found so far is 47’x11’ and is estimated to be around 500,000 tons
In 2006 the Western Wall Heritage Foundation estimated it at 517 tonnes (1,139,468lbs US). That's a tad smaller. ;-) But still a big ar$e rock.
