Top 10 Ancient Civilizations With Advanced Technology
click above for whole article, thanks donald
like a real life indiana jones, maverick archeologist david hatcher childress has taken many incredible journeys to some of the oldest and most remote spots on earth. writing prolifically of lost cities and ancient civilizations, he has produced no less than six lengthy books (the lost cities series) chronicling the dimly remembered glories of obscure locales from the gobi desert to puma punku in bolivia, from mohenjo daro to ba'albek. we caught up with him shortly before taking off for new guinea on yet another archeological expedition and asked him if he would be willing to write an exclusive for atlantis rising on the top 10 ancient civilizations with advanced technology. he agreed to dig through his archives and give us a story.

ruins of Tiahuanaco, in Bolivia, could be 14,000 years old!
i urge you to go to this site so that you can see the huge momolithic stones used in their construction, the whole article is posted there, thanks donald
ask most people where the oldest civilization lived and you'll here answers like mesopotamia (iraq), egypt or iran. while these cultures can be traced back to 4000 b.c., the mysterious ruins of tiahuanaco, in bolivia, could be 14,000 years old!
if you think the great pyramid in egypt is a technological marvel, wait until you see what artists and engineers were doing in tiahuanaco. this culture thrived at the breathless elevation of about 13,000 feet. they managed to somehow move stones weighing up to 200 tons and invented modular building techniques that would even today, be cutting edge.
the most famous icon of the archaeological site at tiahuanaco is the sun gate. this has been described as a "calendar" almost as long as the monolithic gateway has been known to exist; thus the sun gate has also been called 'the calendar gate'. this calendar sculpture, though it undoubtedly depicts a "solar year," cannot however be made to fit into the solar year as we divide it at present. the calendar has only 290 days, divided into 12 "twelfths" of 94 days each, plus 2 intercalary days.
some researchers have attempted to explain this as being a ritualistic calendar while others have claimed that, 14,000 years ago, the length of a year was somehow different from today. still others believe that it may represent a year on some another planet.
extraterrestrial connections were first suggested by eric von danken and have been perpetuated by discoveries of the apparent advanced knowledge that tiahuanacan engineers seemed to possess -- thousands of years ahead of other cultures.
analysis of this culture has shown that ancient tiahuanacan scientists knew that the earth was a globe which rotated on its axis and they calculated exactly the times of eclipses not visible at tiahuanaco but visible in the opposite hemisphere.
scientists have also ascertained that the tiahuanacans divided the circle mathematically into 264 degrees (rather than 360 as was initiated by the babylonians); they determined the ratio of pi (22/7), and they could calculate squares (and hence, square roots).
the fact that the culture of tiahuanaco appeared fully developed in this high altitude, arid and inhospitable land is a real puzzle. almost immediately they seem to have used advanced building techniques like modular construction. huge blocks were carved from single stones and designed to fit together on the site with exact precision and artistic style. these techniques were only developed by modern builders in the last century. the massive blocks are extremely stable, resisting both time and earthquakes. but how were they made, transported and positioned, apparently by hand?
tiahuanaco is located on the southern shore of lake titicaca. puma punku [above], southwest of the temple structure, truly staggers the imagination. in the past, the lake was much higher and its shores lapped tiahuanaco. near the site, at a site called puma punku, there is a massive, four-part, now collapsed building. one of the construction blocks from which the pier was fashioned from a stone block that weighs an estimated 440 tons (equal to nearly 600 full-size cars). several other blocks are between 100 and 150 tons. the quarry for these giant blocks was on the western shore of titicaca, some ten miles away. there is no known technology in all the ancient world that could have transported stones of such massive weight and size. the andean people of 500 ad, with their simple reed boats, could certainly not have moved them. even today, with all the modern advances in engineering and mathematics, we could not fashion such a structure.

high atop the andes mountains, the "rockies" of south america, there is an arid region in peru that is both unusual and unnatural. seen from the air, this region could easily be mistaken for an abandoned airport. someone has carefully cleared and carved a series of laser straight lines that span many kilometers. most of these lines are just wide enough to be called a path. other areas form huge rectangles and trapezoids, hundreds of meters in width and length. indeed, it looks as if the area was made to accommodate a fleet of dc-747's, but these "runways" are thousands of years old.
this is just one of the many mysteries to be found in the region. on neighboring mountain tops, the intact remains of walls and buildings can be seen. this architecture is all made from massive stones-- some weighing as much as a locomotive-- each meticulously carved and transported to the high peaks from a quarry some five miles away. the precision of each stone's final finish is so exact that there was no need for mortar or cement. the stones are joined so tightly that not even a pin can be inserted between them.
when the spanish came to peru and discovered this construction, they asked the native people if they had made these huge monuments. but the natives of peru had only legends of "the ancients" that came and went, long before they established their villages. their identity is still a mystery.
30,000 Years Ago from yesterday
below is link to story of a comparison of the nasca line in peru to egyptian glyphs, facinating how the two correlate. donald
http://www.mondovista.com/nasca3000.html click here for full story
30,000 years ago from yesterday is the story of the discovery that the giant figures that sprawl the mountain mesa above nasca, peru relate the same events, in fact they illustrate the events told to us in the creation texts of ancient egypt, the ancient egyptian pyramid texts.  these wondrous artifacts have their origin in the alaskan era, 30,000 years ago from yesterday in the golden age of the gods.
a chance overflight of the cordilleras range in central peru in the years prior to ww-ii  was the event leading to the re-discovery of the line figures on the plateau, the pampa jumana-colorada, above nazca where for centuries these pastoral images that speak in silent voice to a lost legacy of the past, lay hidden. unremarkable on their own, except for their intricacies, their immense size, and the apparent reference to life through the belabored display of the genitals, but yet compelling, these graphic patterns were thought by some investigators to be religious or astronomical exhibits from a long lost generation. we are to learn different!
i've really enjoyed perusing these links! thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!
Japan researcher says has found an Asian Atlantis
along the southern islands of japan, apparently there are traces of an ancient city which marine geologist masaaki kimura believes to be over 3,000 years old.
"tokyo (reuters life!) - a researcher investigating underwater rock formations off the coast of japan believes they are the remnants of an asian equivalent of atlantis -- an ancient civilization swallowed up by the ocean.
marine geologist masaaki kimura says he has identified the ruins of a city off the coast of yonaguni island on the southwestern tip of japan."
NAZCA: An Open Air Nautical University?
be well, be love.
an "open air university" for teaching initiate students the scientific arts of astronomy & navigation
a vast tapestry of geometry, consisting of lines, trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, glyphs, cairn markers, mounds, etc., is etched into the desert pampa near nazca, peru. the intricate design work covers a region of about 400-square miles, with yet further pockets of similar geometry being found beyond the main groupings. some individual lines run uninterrupted for several miles. the nazca geometry has survived, mostly intact, for potentially thousands of years because of the arid, rainless conditions of the high desert, with the result that the greatest destruction wrought has been in the past 50-years due to mindless vehicle and foot traffic crunching over the lines.
the nazca lines, as they've come to be known, represent one of the most baffling mysteries of our age and our expert archaeologists cannot decipher either their meaning or provide any plausible, rational and acceptable explanation as to why they were made.
the ancient mediterranean trade route links to nazca, peru:
in 1991 a fleet of 14 large wooden ships were found buried at abydos, egypt, eight miles from the nile river. the ships ranged from 60 to 80-feet long and are known to be at least 5000-years old. the abydos fleet was analysed, in part, by cheryl haldane, nautical archaeologist from texas a&m university, who stated that, "they showed a high degree of technology combined with grace." hancock wrote: "they were of an advanced design, capable of riding out the most powerful waves and the worst weather of the open seas." (see fingerprints of the gods, chpt. 45, pp 431 & 432).
pottery from egypt, which can be dated to 3500 bc, depicts ships with sails and wall paintings in the nile valley, dating to 4500 bc show high prow, long sleek ships. one well preserved, heavy planked ship, attributed to the pharaoh cheops (circa 2600 bc) is 150-feet in length.
we know that the phoenician round ships were trading throughout the mediterranean and into the atlantic from at least 1300 bc and the phoenicians maintained tin & lead mines in britain or silver mines in spain. their ships were large, sturdy, ocean going vessels.
the avalon explosion: evolution of ediacara morphospace
bing shen, lin dong, shuhai xiao,* michal kowalewski
ediacara fossils [575 to 542 million years ago (ma)] represent earth's oldest known complex macroscopic life forms, but their morphological history is poorly understood. a comprehensive quantitative analysis of these fossils indicates that the oldest ediacara assemblage—the avalon assemblage (575 to 565 ma)—already encompassed the full range of ediacara morphospace. a comparable morphospace range was occupied by the subsequent white sea (560 to 550 ma) and nama (550 to 542 ma) assemblages, although it was populated differently. in contrast, taxonomic richness increased in the white sea assemblage and declined in the nama assemblage. these diversity changes, occurring while morphospace range remained relatively constant, led to inverse shifts in morphological variance. the avalon morphospace expansion mirrors the cambrian explosion, and both events may reflect similar underlying mechanisms.
paleontologists say two explosive evolutionary events shaped early history of multicellular life
blacksburg, va., january 4, 2008 -- scientists have known for some time that most major groups of complex animals appeared in the fossils record during the cambrian explosion, a seemingly rapid evolutionary event that occurred 542 million years ago. now virginia tech paleontologists, using rigorous analytical methods, have identified another explosive evolutionary event that occurred about 33 million years earlier among macroscopic life forms unrelated to the cambrian animals.
they dubbed this earlier event the "avalon explosion."
