Or they could use multiple ropes.And regardless of how the rope was rigged, the minimum breaking strength of a 2" steel cable is about 160 tons. Safety limits are well below that, so I suspect they had something much stronger than steel cable to lift these hundreds of tons.
I avoided it because you implied it would get the thread banned. Is that your goal? Are you one who likes to provoke fights to get others kicked out?
Provide some evidence then. Let's start with some geological evidence.I avoided it because you implied it would get the thread banned. Is that your goal? Are you one who likes to provoke fights to get others kicked out?
There's unlimited evidence of a world-wide flood both on the physical earth and in ancient literature. And I seem to recall more than one historian lamenting that history starts at 5000 BC. What a coincidence. But never mind. The great mystery doesn't depend on that.
No, my goal is not to get you kicked out, it is to support the forums rules of providing citations for claims you make, as micromass just requested. The point is, you should not make claims you can't support. If you can support your claim, then I will have learned something new.I avoided it because you implied it would get the thread banned.

In a way, my wife made something similar last night, something likeYou should consider a visit to Germany.
It doesn't sound like you're agreeing. It sounds like you're fighting for the fun of fighting.I agree there are many unexplained things of the past, ...
You haven't presented any explanation at all as to how those heavy blocks were delicately positioned at Sacsayhuaman, and no plausible explanation for how they got the curved shapes so exact on mating rocks....but you are willfully ignoring perfectly good explanations...
Oh, that's it. I must have a sinister plot...for some reason you're not willing to divulge.
Aaah, so they had advanced technology that we now do not have? So that explains why they found for example hard rocks with which they carved out other rocks, because that's totally more advanced than we have today. That's why at the query's we find such advanced technology. Really, your explanation is only plausible if you completely ignore everything else.A much simpler and more plausible explanation is that man at one point had much greater knowledge and advanced technology than we do today. The theory that man was an idiot cave man until we smart people were born is just arrogance.
Maybe they had lasers, but I didn't suggest it because no one has ever found evidence of them. But there IS evidence of incredible things that someone did (the remaining stone structures) and no one has adequately explained them.Sure, they must have had lasers and levitations devices, but somehow we can't find any proof of them.
You are the one suggesting lasers, not me. But yes, there were two or three or dozens of different levels of technology used by the many different peoples who worked on these sites over the millennia.Maybe there were two types of workers: the workers who could cut stone with lasers, and those who had to use copper chisels.
You're making a logic error. I have said this is a great mystery. You are saying no, it's explainable. The burden of proof falls on you. And you've failed to provide a plausible explanation. No, I didn't ignore, I rejected and said why.Except for "there are building that I can't explain", you have zero proof.
How sad... Disgusted by a little bit of intellectual discussion...I'm disgusted.
In bible related mythology there are references to a "great flood." The references are nowhere near unlimited, however. But the fact that it was called a "great" flood (at least in English translations) actually is on topic.There's unlimited evidence of a world-wide flood both on the physical earth and in ancient literature.
Right. What could change my mind however is that if the fossilized sea life atop mountains and on ALL other places stem from the exact same time period. This is actually a very simple test for the global flood.Finds of fossilized sea-life found atop mountains is expected due to plate tectonics
