...we begins to wonder if there is not something more...yet immune to reason...
well i guess it's the human nature again to seek the unclear,the vague and the unknown ,we are just a bunch of naturally born curious
some egyptomanians tend (with no bad intention of course)to link the pyramids and other great building from well known ancient civilizations with misty fictitious civilization like the legendary "Atlantis" pseudo-civilization,they seem for unknown reason underestimate the human capability to build such marvelous structure with the so-called "primitive" technology!
haven't you ask yourself one time,did we transfered religion with technology or medival bishops with "some" immoral scientists,saints and angels revelations with U.F.O and aliens abductions!
well maybe we are the smartest mamals on earth,but we are still just another "ape" in the evolutionary tree!
