The Swiss Built Stonehenge?

Tue Feb 11, 2003 6:37 am

According to the latest discovery, Stonehenge may have been built by the Swiss or Germans.

Perhaps that's why it's lasted so long?  Big grin

Isn't, or wasn't, its purpose similar to the Pyramids of Giza, as a giant calender?

If it was built by Germans, you'd probably be able to drive it with tiptronic transmission, fit 4 kids in the back and still have space for 3 suitcases in the back.

ah well..

If it was British, it would have broke at least 2 times a year, costing considerable amounts of money to repair!

The one thing I do not understand about Stonehenge and the pyramids in Central America is: If they were build using presice calculations of the sun and stars at the time of construction, then, since the earth 'wobbles' and stars fade out and change position over time, how can these things still be precise today after all these thousands of years? When the sun at equinox hits the stairs of one pyramid in Mexico, the shadow forms the body of a serpant. The equinox also can be calculated with Stonehenge.

The earth´s rotational axis has not changed (or not much), so everything that only depends on the apparent position of the sun still "works"; Star positions, however, are no longer matched. The egyptian pyramids, for instance, probably had some of their parameters aligned to certain stars. But that is no longer true today.

Who knows... Has anybody located the fuel tank, yet...?  Big thumbs up
