Interesting read and pictures at the least...

One of the greatest archaeological riddles—and one of the grossest academic omissions—of our time is the untold story of the parallel ruins left by two seemingly unrelated ancient civilizations: the ancient Mayans on one side of the Pacific Ocean and the ancient Balinese on the other. The mysterious and unexplained similarities in their architecture, iconography, and religion are so striking and profound that the Mayans and Balinese seem to have been twin civilizations—as if children of the same parent. Yet, incredibly, this mystery is not only being ignored by American scholars, it’s being suppressed.

I think without a doubt there have been advanced civilizations pre-Egypt and during some of these peaks could have been more advanced than today in some regards. The permanence of the architecture, similar styles, and stories just have too many parallels throughout the globe. Nice find

The Mayan and Inca told us they didn't build their places where they worshiped. They were using ancient temples at the very least second handedly.

It seems so much more likely that we've endured peaks and valleys in our growth and are still coming out of a massive state of amnesia driven by the last cataclysm or maybe even global war. We're still emerging from the dark ages imo

Was hoping you would chime in. Wanted to hear your perspective. Who built the temples that they worshipped in? How old we're they when the myans began using them? Was there a connection between the two?

Why can't real scientist base their theories on nothing but pure speculation like you guys?

In Bali, the thickness and darkness of the patina (due to oxidation and other processes) on their monuments suggests it could be much older than currently theorized.

there has been plenty of theorizing that the similarity of monolithic structures in the pacific islands to south american indian structures indicates the spread of one material culture to the other. i'm not sure to what extent it's been proven, but a lot of anthropologists believe that many of the pacific islanders' ancestors came from the west coast of south america.

regarding the original post, i'm not equipped to answer that question with any authority, but as a general caution i would like to note that a great many archaeologically-based conspiracy theories are in desperate need of occam's razor.

Another good question... Why are there pyramids on almost every continent of the world, and those pyramids were built before the age of intercontinental travel?

What are pyramids, and why are they everywhere?

if you want to build a structure to reach as high as possible (a motive instinctual in the human heart, i would argue) and you're stuck in 2000 BC, what are your construction options?

your materials are wood and stone. can you get wood that high? no. structural tech doesn't exist and won't for hundreds (poo, thousands) of years. so you're stuck with stone. can you stack the stones vertically? lol no. you can't because you don't have the ability to raise them vertically to stack them in the first place, and moreover it'll collapse on itself without any sort of interior stabilization (like modern rebar.). pyramidal structures are the only thing that works at that stage.

an examination of the evolution of pyramid-building in egypt shows a long line of errors and subsequent fixes on later efforts, and extensive primary documents elaborately detail these problems and the manner in which they were dealt. so unless we're to assume aliens faked bad pyramids and then created fake hieroglyphic records to show the addressing of those construction flaws, pyramids were very much man-made.
