6.13 – MYSTERIOUS STRUCTURES (6.20.14)

PUMA PUNKU & GOBEKLI TEPE [14c]

Palm Springs, California. Master stonemason and sculptor Roger Hopkins uses a variety of advanced tools to cut and shape hard stones. Powered implements such as diamond-tipped wires and polishers enable him to fashion works of art out of huge granite blocks obtained from nearby quarries. Yet even with these high-tech tools, Hopkins cannot replicate what ancient civilizations accomplished thousands of years ago. Could these advanced engineering methods be the smoking gun that proves humans had help from alien beings?

“The precision on some of the work that I’ve seen is just incredible. It’s possible to do by hand, but it’d take an incredible amount of time. Plus, you have to have years of experience to be able to pull it off.”

Roger Hopkins (Stone Sculptor)

“In my opinion, the most tangible pieces of evidence that we have regarding possible extraterrestrial technology is when we look at the ancient stonecutting techniques. Because, in some instances, we ourselves today could not replicate what our ancestors allegedly accomplished with stonemasonry.”

Puma Punku is a large temple complex located on a high plateau in Bolivia. Mainstream archaeologists date the site from approximately 200 BC. The people who lived here had neither a written language nor the wheel, yet somehow they built one of the world’s most complex structures. Ancient Alien Theorists view Puma Punku as clear proof of extraterrestrial influence.

“The ruins we find at Puma Punku are simply extraordinary. Puma Punku defies logic.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The interest of Puma Punku is not so much that the individual stones sorted together perfectly but the fact that the stones, as such, are of such tremendous design that it requires concepts of mathematics which are far beyond anything we are actually using right now. Yet somehow in the past, somebody has made that for a specific purpose, and in a way which even computer programs today would kind of go, how is this possible?”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“In the highlands of Bolivia, Puma Punku. Some of these blocks are over 40 to 50 tons each. What can you tell us about this?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Boy, they had their stonecutting abilities, you know, pretty well fine-tuned for 5,000 years old. I mean it’s almost unbelievable. But the these cutting planes that they have on here are very impressive. And some of the incise cuts, see like in in here, all these interior cuts, very hard to do. I mean, it would be difficult for us with our equipment to get that kind of precision.”

 – Roger Hopkins (Stone Sculptor)

“Let’s talk a little bit about inside boxes.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“I was afraid you were gonna pull something like this on me. That is a hell of a piece of work. I mean, if we were to do something like that today, we’d use what they have these computer-driven CNC machines which are have diamond tips and you have a template that, you know, the computer follows. And even then, it may not come out as perfect.”

Roger Hopkins (Stone Sculptor)

“Because, even though you can tell that – obviously, this piece broke off – nowhere in here can you see any imperfection. It’s like and by the way, when you’re there, if you go with your finger over these edges and you put a little pressure on your fingertip, you can cut yourself. This is how sharp the edges are.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

But where could the ancient peoples have developed such technology? Is it really possible that extraterrestrial visitors provided different construction methods and tools?

“When I saw these blocks, I didn’t really think that they were cut. The first thing really that I thought of was this appears very similar to Frank Lloyd Wright’s textile block system of construction which he used in his California houses in the early 1920s. Now, what he did was he took concrete, poured it into molds.”

 – Michael Dunn (Mining Engineer)

“There actually are ancient Incan legends that suggest that they had the capability of softening the stone. At Sacsayhuamán, for example, we find these gigantic stone blocks, gigantic stone walls where it looks as if those stones were molten, put into place, and then the stone hardened again.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Is it possible that the precision-cut stones at Puma Punku are really the product of extraterrestrial technology? Perhaps further clues can be found halfway around the world, with an ancient civilization that was found buried beneath the earth.

Located more than 500 miles away from the crowded streets of Istanbul is Sanliurfa, in southeastern Turkey. There, in 1994, on a dusty hilltop, a local shepherd noticed the tip of a stone sticking out of his field. He began to dig, eventually unearthing a 19-foot pillar. Its edges were precise, and rising from its center was a relief carving of a strange animal. Upon closer examination, it appeared that the finely chiseled stone had been fashioned by talented stonemasons, working with advanced tools. When word of the discovery reached the scientific community, one fact became obvious: a Kurdish shepherd had stumbled upon what is perhaps the most astonishing archaeological discovery in modern times a site known as Gobekli Tepe.

“For 13 years, a German archaeology team has been meticulously going into a hill. And they have been doing carbon dating, as deep as they go. It has taken them 13 years to uncover only five percent of a gigantic civilization. They know what’s under the ground. Circles upon circles upon circles, perfect circles in stone. And rising up out of those stone circles are huge sculpted columns, 19 feet high, 15 tons per column.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

Test results have supported the idea that Gobekli Tepe is nearly 12,000 years old, almost 7,000 years older than Mesopotamia’s Fertile Crescent, long heralded as the cradle of civilization.

“In Gobekli Tepe, the oldest advanced site now on our planet. We know of no other site that is this advanced. And it has now doubled the history of humanity.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

“And right there is this gigantic site with huge megalithic circular structures. It just stands there, a mystery, asking us to go figure, how was this done? What’s the background to this? We don’t know who made them. They just come out of the darkness of the last ice age where we know nothing and enter the stage of history already fully formed. And to my mind, this is indicative of a major forgotten episode in human history.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

Curiously, after 13 years of digging, archaeologists investigating the ancient site have failed to recover a single stonecutting tool. Nor have they found any agricultural implements.

“How in the world can you contemplate 19-foot-tall, perfectly sculpted columns that are 11,000 to 12,000 years old, and no tools?”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

The mystery of Gobekli Tepe is further compounded by the ancient stone carvings found throughout the site. They depict creatures like wild boars and geese.

“We see various types of creatures different animals, birds, insects and even abstract human forms that seem to come together to create this very weird menagerie which has totally baffled the archaeologists who have uncovered this site. Now, what they represent is a matter of speculation, but it’s my intuition that they may even represent a ark in stone.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

Located less than 350 miles from Mount Ararat the site many biblical scholars believe to be the resting place of Noah’s Ark the animal carvings of Gobekli Tepe suggest a time in the region’s history when the indigenous animal population may have been of a totally different origin. But do these carvings actually provide historical proof of the great flood that was described in the Bible?

“Archaeologists are aware that there are more than 2,000 myths of a great flood, which destroyed an earlier civilization.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

Some researchers theorize that the events of a cataclysmic flood and a story similar to that told of Noah’s Ark was recorded on the stone pillars of Gobekli Tepe. If true, that would push the date of the great flood back to the end of the last ice age, far earlier than the biblical period.

“There is evidence that this may have ended quite catastrophically. There was a lot of things happening, a lot of migrations, possibly waters rising up very quickly a lot of rapid changes in lifestyles.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

But another perhaps even more profound question remains. Who built Gobekli Tepe? For what purpose? And how did such an ancient site remain in nearly pristine condition for more than 10,000 years?

“In the case of Gobekli Tepe, we find that the site was carefully placed underneath sand. This site was buried. It appears as if somehow the usage of Gobekli Tepe was no longer there and that people moved on but had such a reverence to this important site that rather than destroy it, they put it to peace by burying it.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Is it possible that the people at Gobekli Tepe had such reverence for the site because it really was built with the help of alien technology? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and claim further evidence that extraterrestrials were behind the construction of the world’s most mysterious structures can be found in Lebanon, by examining a site that dates back nearly 9,000 years.
