[snip] Michael Tellinger, author of "Slave Species of god" talks about the discovery of the oldest man-made structure on Earth, around 75,000 years old. A new book by Johan Heine and Michael Tellinger outlines the events that led to this discovery in South Africa by explorer/pilot Johan Heine. [end]
Thanks Renfield. This is an archaeoastronomy/megaliths topic, but also an "Oh So Mysteriouso" topic. When the narrator began with the phrase "very unique", my BS detector went off (and since I carry it with me, you know it isn't that sensitive ;'). It's still worth a listen, it's titillating and fun. Book's not out yet, but I'm going to link it here anyway.

The Seventy Great Mysteries
of the Ancient World
by Johan Heine
and Michael Tellinger
...This year, I discovered six of these sites which, in local culture, are frequently attributed to the Mon-pa or Gling Ge-sar of the Tibetan epic. The menhirs are often found in association with other types of structures... ...
The standing stones vary in height from 25 centimeters to 1.5 meters and can number many hundreds in a single complex. The stones appear to have been aligned in neat rows oriented to the cardinal directions. They are now often inclined, heavily worn and covered in lichen, indications of their substantial age. The menhirs appear to be constructed from both raw and dressed stones depending on their size and the particular site.
Also "Oh So Mysteriouso" ?
I had a ‘eureka moment’ after studying these stones and their layout.
This site, with its stone backrests, is clearly the first drive-in theater, probably set up for aliens to watch the ancient equivilent of “Earth Girls Are Easy” if you know what I mean, and I know you do.
Someone has to get in touch with Joe Bob Briggs immediately.
Of course Adam kept a calendar.
It gave him a better sense of when to duck!
As always, nice find! You’re right, that looks like another topic possibility. :’)
In that video intro, he starts rambling about Orion’s Belt (Robert Bauval) and on that page you linked it appears that he’s borrowing from Sitchin.
To put it mildly... I read most of Sitchin's books long ago, and the bullets on the website seemed to be a complete extraction (the aliens' need for gold, genetic manipulation by aliens from Planet X to create slaves to work the gold mines, etc). A titillating and interesting story as man gropes to understand his origins -- but then when you come to realize that the Bible is the true story - which fits the logical, factual, and forensic evidence - i.e., reality - you realize these books by Sitchin and Tellinger and Heine are just more excursions into fantasy land. We have a tendency to get bored with the old landmarks, and always look for something new.
The truth is as it always was - God's Word.
LOL! Now why didn't I think of that? It's so obvious!
Earlier in the century, Western scholars did some pioneering work as have Chinese archaeologists more recently. In the 1920s, the Central Asiatic Expedition of George Roerich uncovered megalithic sites and graves in the Changthang, which appeared to be typologically related to the Bronze Age and Iron Age barrows of Eurasia...
...Since the 1970s, Chinese scientists have discovered Neolithic tools and paintings at a variety of places in the Changthang...
...Today at Black Rock there is no reliable source of potable water, however, according to paleoclimatological studies conducted by Chinese scientists in the region, a nearby lake contained freshwater as recently as 3000 years ago...
LHASA, China — Fossilized hand and footprints have revealed that mankind lived on the Tibetan plateau at the height of the Ice Age — 16,000 years earlier than anyone previously thought.
I thought my discovery was so important that I googled for Joe Bob Briggs, the world’s greatest expert on drive-in movies and the films that played there. I found his address and sent him a copy of your picture.
Joe Bob actually confirmed my opinion in a return email.
” That’s amazing, man. Thanks for the tip...and do you know how you can tell? Look at how many people knocked the speaker pole over as they were leaving.”
I expect he will have an article on his website about it very soon. I love it when great minds come together in synergy.
Are you going to write a book?
Wow! Nice. Post the link at such time...
