Historians take a look at the ancient temples and religious structures and merely try to attach a date to them without asking how
"primitive' man managed to build and carve out buildings of this magnitude with "primitive' tools, let alone asking how most
were built with a precise knowledge of astronomy and math. No one explains how in the first 'civilized' societies of Sumer and
Mesopotamia (now Iraq), major advancements in knowledge and ability built libraries, medical centers, observatories and awe-
inspiring building construction. All of a sudden Man found out the science of exact astronomy though they had no telescopes,
how to move boulders weighing more than even modern cranes can lift and how to carve rock so precise that the technique is
still unknown. Most of the temples and even the cities themselves were built using celestial alignments and their religions and
community belief systems are based on stories of gods from the sky and teachers that came from heaven. Why and how was
this use of astronomy and math so important to cultures across the world unless it was based in experiences that inspired it?
This is the Kailasa Temple in
Bombay, India, thought to
have been constucted in the
8th or 9th century. It's the
largest building in the world
carved from a single, solid
section of hillside --- 2.4
million cubic feet of rock
were removed from the top
down to create it. Ancient
Indian texts tell of the gods
coming from the sky in flying
machines. The floor plan of
this temple is laid out to
exact religious designs
which represent the cosmos.
Pretty amazing with no
modern tools!
