    I’d love to see more of the finding at Puma Punku… it is all mind boggling at what we are finding on the Earth.

    • Bluey Australia

      Evidence of us being here longer than they say…and more perhaps advanced than us now….

    Not only did this rock come from 60 miles away but also the rock is Diorite, which is one of the hardest igneous rocks. Diorite tools were used by Egyptians to work granite. It is capable of taking a high polish but for people to work such a hard mineral to such exacting standards over 3500 years ago….. highly unlikely. Some of the construction stones are all alike to the last measurement. What it looks like….. or more closely resembles….. is the modern practice of casting concrete using forms or molds.

      So, Joe, what’s your take on how and why this place exists?

    • anonymous

      contrary to ancient aliens, there is no Diorite in puma punka it is made up of granate and red sandstone it was also fashioned using a method where they would create ridges in the rock with metal tools (which they had) then take off the ridges this would not have required laser cutting or diamond tools. The site has been carbon dated to around AD 550 and is covered in the pictographs of the native Tiwanaku people.

      • Anonymous

        …and carbon dating is SOOOO absolute, precise and foolproof…?
        The native inhabitants laughed at the idea, when asked if THEY were responsible for the architecture at Puma Punku; they insisted these ruins were there Long before the people arrived.

        Mainstream scientists et al. will proclaim many things, and even go as far as distorting and ignoring evidence that could harm the present paradigms – and attack the character of discoverers in attempts to discredit their work.
        Ancient Aliens Debunked is a prime example — quite often facts are misrepresented, and only selective data are discussed on each topic, to give the readers a usually false impression that the topic has been thoroughly, absolutely, and scientifically disproven.

        The fact remains that HOWEVER the ruins of Puma Punku were built, the precision and quality cannot presently be replicated, even with MODERN TECHNOLOGY, TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES. So “metal tools” or no, if the results cannot nearly be duplicated today, it seems highly unlikely that these ancient peoples could have done so.
        Not to mention the fact that these people THEMSELVES claim to have had nothing at all to do with the project!

      • stunami

        If you are so sure then recreate it. Anyone can say they used this method but without proof of recreating it now it is not plausible. Look at the cuts more closely. There are inline bevels as precise as modeling in an advanced 3D modeling software. The same goes for coral castle. These so called scientists need to create an experiment where they reproduce their theory with the tools they claim the ancients had. Using words alone is not science. It’s a bad theory. And its arrogance to think time and evolution is linear with no solid evidence to prove it. At least ancient alien theorists are looking at these mysteries and widening the scope of possibilities. Today’s mainstream scientists LIMIT our thinking which will never solve the mystery. I think they want it to remain a mystery so we are easier controlled.

    12 Facts about Puma Punku Amazing… All Points Put By The Debunking Theorists Are Pointless… Skeptics are Always There In Every Field… If Puma Punku Was Built As Per The Debunkers Theory Then The Construction Would Never Have Got Completed… Same With The Great Pyramids… Hiding History Too Has Become A Profession… Think World Wake Up — __/__

    • Bluey Australia

      Your so right,the world,s so called brains cant see for the trees,they think they know it all,the lost history or past of this planet we dont know..maybe they were just as advanced as us,and destroyed themselves because of ignorance..sounds very much the same as us….history does repeat itself….ponder….????

    • Chris Hill

      This means aliens did it lol

      • KGC

        Hi, I don’t think so. I think the so called “Primitive” people were more advanced then we will ever know. These are objects that we cannot build, were built 10 Thousand years ago. THINK ABOUT IT.

    • KGC

      Mr. Menon,
      I could not agree more. There is nothing done today that has not been done before.

    This discovery truly is out of this world.if moulds were used and cutting tech made of a precious jewel or of the rock itself could be possible.precision can be accepted aswel man could of been dumb as blonde in that day and age and this construction is alil far fetched or unbelieveble.question still is if man had created or built these monuments there seems to be some significance in it coz its all around the world and they all have something similar in design.

    • Highcover

      Is it posable that they had a way to mix some chemicals the way they make concreat? Then use wood to form it. That many years ago the elavation might have men much lower.

      • Ivan

        Well they could have used some sort of chemicals sure, ancient man were very intelligent. But I am not sure if there is evidence that points towards the use of chemicals and molds… Besides the “stones” at Puma Punku were quarried and transported.

      • Bluey Australia

        Pre-flood days in Noahs Time….worth a ponder..what was the world like pre-flood days..were just as advanced as us…even more to the point of total destruction..its a truely amazing site….

  • Rock Man Sand Grinder

    The quarry was 6 miles, not 60. Ancient civilizations had plumb bobs and t- suqares. Debunkers are from both sides, either you debink main-stream or you are debunking ancient alien beliefs, but to assume man was dumb and lacked tools is, well, absurbed and ignorant. Beloeve what you want, but dont fabricate.

    • AncientCodeAdmin

      Hi, thanks for commenting and sharing your opinion. No one is fabricating here anything. Articles here are based on information gathered. Let me clarify a few things.

      1) Based upon petrographic and chemical analyses of samples from both individual stones and known quarry sites near Puma Punku, archaeologists believe that sandstones blocks were transported from a quarry near lake Titicaca, which is approx. 10 km from Puma Punku. Other ANDESITE blocks were transported came from quarries from about 100 km. Andesite by the way is one of the “hardest” rocks to quarry.

      2) Did you know that there is no evidence of “tools” near Puma Punku? No expanation has been given to “how” ancient man managed to quarry Andesite Blocks or transport them. Plumb Bobs and T-squares would have helped very little there.

      3) No one is assuming “Man was dumb”. “Au contraire” We believe Ancient Man was extremely intelligent, they managed to achieve amazing things, some of them we cannot replicate even today.

      4) The fact that Puma Punku’s “constructers” MIGHT have used plumb bobs and T-squares does not tell us really anything about the construction ( nor transportation ) of blocks that weigh 2, 5, 10 or 100 tons. We know that Ancient Egyptians used Plum Bobs, but we have not found any evidence of said instrument in Puma Punku.

      Again thanks for sharing your opinion. Have a great day.

      • Drew Palmer

        The andesite blocks average 5kg.

        The tree line in the Lake Titicaca area is 17000 feet, and certain scrub brushes in the Bolivian Andes can be found at up to 22,000 feet, by far the highest altitudes in the world.

        The site has been so heavily looted, down to stones being used in private homes in nearby Puno, it would shocking to find tools still remaining. Which works both ways – any advanced technological artifacts would have been looted as well.

        All of which still doesn’t explain the advanced machining techniques, the apparent innovation of an assembly line, or how the massive stones were lifted. I’m not a believer in ancient aliens but there is still something very wonderful that happened that is still unexplained.

  • eyeamme

    We can speculate until the cows come home but we still can’t duplicate it.

      the Coral Castle in Florida?

    What about if it was a trap- a cell, to lock something like a bad angel.
    just saying. :)

  • Remowill

    All of the Scientists assume that there were no civilizations before the present one. isn’t it possible that there was a civilization that grew so big and powerful that they destroyed themselves in a war, or something. Maybe we are their descendants.

    • unknown :P

      This is a plausible alternative to having been visited by far advanced extraterrestrial visitors.

      If human civilization had reached a peak higher than today’s technology, it’s absolutely possible that they achieved these feats that are still unexplained by present standards and knowledge.
      This would explain a lot of anomalous artifacts and evidence of advanced architecture that cannot be replicated with the highest technology and techniques available to us at present.

      It’s also interesting to note the very similar origin stories that numerous ancient civilizations share – many of these that didn’t have any contact at all with one another – similarities that span the globe, across oceans and millennia, with remarkably similar creation stories, and clear parallels between their gods and the noted events of their origins —- much too similar to be mere coincidence…

      • Bluey Australia

        I agree,what was this planet like pre-flood days…were we so backward as they say…I think not I think we have been here longer than what they say maybe for hundreds of thousands of years….evidence is there…I think they are really scared at what they have found…but ignorance from them so called experts is typical….we have a long past and its buried under the sands of time….

    • Lilith Filth

      but why war and why stone ….there is evidence that we have been working in stone much much longer then science theorizes …. but that natural courses left man in a survive mode for 10’s of thousands of years…forgetting completely once was known widely . but why stone we today engineer nothing that will last 10 k years let alone 50 or 100k years

      • Lilith Filth

        i would like to see this site do some research in to underwater discoveries . some of theses sites like cuba could date back as far as 50k years….http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/735931/posts

      • John Copper

        Why stone? They used stone for one reason and one reason only… TIME! This is the same reason that Mount Rushmore is in stone! Potentially, thousands of years from now, people will wonder who or what THESE beings were, yes? YES!

    • Bluey Australia

      Tyical Scientists,they werent here over 50,000 years ago,so why do they debunk things such as this Puma Punka..because of their ignorance…they dont have any clue to who built it and why….I think man was just as advanced as we are now and finally destroyed the world then…..maybe we are headed down the same path….remember the Flood….

  • thepotriotsociety

    What about the Coral Castle in Florida? Seems to me that someone is aware of something in the past…..

  • RMR

    Assuming that Puma Punku is dated around 500-1000AD Just a quick survey of contemporary civilizations and their technologies will put things in perspective eg. the kingdoms/dynasties in India were far more technologically advanced at around the same time in history

    • John Copper

      Which gives credence to the Ancient (alien or advanced man technology) Times Theory.

  • Boomer

    If you look at some of the amazing things around the planet from far, far back it appears to me that there was someone who wanted to leave a simple message… we were here. Could it be that when we finally really decipher our DNA that we will find the real message they left?

  • Curious George

    Where are the human or otherwise remains? Is this an archeological dig of any sort? Even if the site was looted, wouldn’t there still be some evidence of tools buried somewhere? Besides the Ancient Alien protheorists, has any other entity studied the site?

  • Anoniguy

    The constructs appear made to ‘lock together’ and the differing shapes cannot be just random..they must have had rhyme and reason behind them. Let us not forget that also, these buildings were architecturally designed, intelligently and for a purpose which we know absolutely nothing about because all we are seeing is the scattered fragments of a much larger whole.

  • Chevy

    I think there’s a point to be made here that’s missing from any posts I’ve seen. It looks as if there was some kind of explosion that blew up the structure as it may have been before said explosion. I think the blocks are too big to have been thrown around by a tornado or hurricane. A meteor strike? If so where are the remnants of it? I hope to one day go there personally and get a first hand look. Whatever the truth is, we don’t know it. We can speculate as to how men could make such things back then, and why they would. I would say without some kind of technology or ability we have long forgotten, simple tools and slave labor are not feasible explanations for Puma Punku’s construction and subsequent destruction.

    • Bluey Australia

      Evidence of advanced culture surpassing our own,why do we wonder…the world may have been more advanced than us today..perhaps a huge world conflict between Nations and peoples over 50,000 years ago…and with history we must learn from it..man may have been more advanced in all aspects of the times long ago….its just typical of ignorance of today..thank God there are like minded people like me…History repeats it self…we should learn from such sites…

  • Bluey Australia

    Puma Punku,well if they are correct in dating this site,it seems that our forefathers an ancestors were very advanced indeed,remember the flood what was the world like before the Noah flood??? maybe they werent so backward after all,and just as advanced as us maybe more,and their advancement caused them to be wiped out,pause for serious thinking or rethinking or who we really are….pretty advanced stuff….

  • jaymac

    There’s evidence of modern man being more than 400,000 years old (www.world-science.net/othernews/101230_sapiens.htm‎) <–just read that//

    Genome projects have uncovered a "bottle neck" effect roughly 60,000 years ago that suggests mankind dropped in population down to about 6,000 individuals before rebounding into the current population. If we could have attained the advanced state we're in today in so short a time then why not for the first 300,000 years? It's a matter of ego. No one wants to think they don't live in the peak of civilization and it could very well be that there are those (crazy conspiracy theory, sorry) that want to keep people ignorant of the past for their own possibly selfish reasons. For much of our known history the powers that be have burned books, suppressed science, and generally controlled the masses through various religions and social orders.

    It's absolutely my belief that before the ice age a civilization or civilizations existed that were advanced in ways different and greater than ourselves. The exact means of their fall are debatable but I tend to believe it was a combination of events both natural and man made. A major impact in the oceans by meteor or comet, world wide war, out of control diseases. Any one or combo of things. I also believe that it's the memory of those days that have inspired the oldest legends, myths, and religions. Who knows, the stories about gods and aliens visiting disparate peoples could very well be survivals of that lost age coming back to lead men towards a better path than the one which had brought them to the brink the last time.
    Why keep it a secret? Who knows, maybe the conflict never really ended.

      Just found this site, and jaymac seems to have the most reasonable answers to all this ancient alien stuff.

      If the speed of light is the top speed possible in this universe, then no aliens have ever visited earth, the distances involved are too vast to cross, even from our nearest stellar neighbor.

      So, it would seem those ancient aliens were us, but something knocked them back to the stone age(asteroid, super volcano, major ice age, pandemic), and us “modern” humans with our present civilization have not yet reached the level of technology our ancestors had reached.

      No little grey men with impossible eyes, just us.

    • http://thegundeck.blogspot.com/ Bob

      One other thing…

      If the problem is that we today just don’t have sufficient technology to construct FTL(faster then light) spaceships, something that may indeed be possible with a more advanced technology, then all bets are off.

    Genesis 6 vs 1>4

  • Stan

    About the ruins of megatons rocks and the technologies. It was the works of the giant Nephilites and hybrid humans during the days of Noah (Genesis 6:4). Those fallen angels were intelligent and with huge strength and might. It is those days where giant animals (Dinasour), unicorn, half human half animals were found.
    Because God sees the earth were so corrupted, He sent flood to this earth and it covers even the highest mountain of the earth.
    That is why you find no other equipment or tools that left behind. All those tools have been washed away and destroyed, tons of sand covered the the tombs and ruins. That is why recently Archaeologist found massive Dinasour bones graves as though there was great flood that gathered all the bones in concentrated site. Yes that was the massive rain and water that pour from the sky 40 days and 40 nights.
    The fallen angels are from heaven, of course they are far more advanced than the modern archaeologist or scientists could comprehend.
    When u find those ruins, tombs or Dinasour that was buried marks the before the great flood. When u look around the Pumapunku, u may see some rocks where like in the mess, it is probably moved by the flood. It is impossible anyone could moved the multi tons stones.

  • Foos

    I do believe there is life out there in the universe. That being said I don’t think puma punku was built by aliens. Just good ol’ human ingenuity. Ancient people wernt stupider than we are today. Puma punku is the product of generations of skilled stone workers knowledge. Each generation perfecting old technology as we do today. The reason we today arnt sure how exactly how they did it is because we lost generations of larg scale stone working experience to history. Even the tools uses have rotted away with time. Bottom line, ancient people were just as smart as we are today. Ignorance isn’t stupidity.

  • Jay V

    Fascinating,but with regards to #5. Flawed logic. Man has transported things heavier than trees far greater distances. Just because they didn’t grow there doesn’t mean they weren’t brought in from other places….much like the stones were. If the stones could be moved from a distance,the trees could have been moved from distances exponentially farther.

  • aztekk

    “No modern engineer is able to build these structures, so they must surely be of alien origin”.

    More like, no one today is interested in recreating these structures.

    These are terrific works of art created by humans, its sad to take the credit away from humanity and give it to the little green men from mars.

    Lets get a grip.

  • http://none Joe

    What a mystery! I’ve wanted to learn who built it and how. Also how was it destroyed like that? NO quake did that!
    It is TOO precision to have been built by men at that time. It was Machined as well.

    Here is a distirbing theory. I have often wondered why these structures display a use of very advanced technology but the medium (stone) was used. The technology does not match the medium. Now go read the testimony of Solomon, considering the above.
