You know what always interested me too was the Dropa Stones? any thoughts on those?? For those that do not know....
In 1938, an archeological expedition led by Dr. Chi Pu Tei into the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of China made an astonishing discovery in some caves that had apparently been occupied by some ancient culture. Buried in the dust of ages on the cave floor were hundreds of stone disks.
A total of 716 discs were found.
Measuring about nine inches in diameter, each had a circle cut into the center and was etched with a spiral groove, making it look for all the world like some ancient phonograph record some 10,000 to 12,000 years old. The spiral groove, it turns out, is actually composed of tiny hieroglyphics that tell the incredible story of spaceships from some distant world that crash-landed in the mountains. The ships were piloted by people who called themselves the Dropa, and the remains of whose descendents, possibly, were found in the cave.

How the heck can people decipher that writting but we have a tough tome decyphering Kryptos or Vonyich Manuscript?

The Devil's Tower Mystery

Posted Image
Devils Tower is a monolith located near Hulett and Sundance in eastern Wyoming. It rises dramatically 1267 feet (386 m) above the surrounding terrain.
In 1977 it was used as the location for the finale of Steven Speilberg's film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Black Hills area in which the tower is located, has some of the largest caves in the world underneath it, including Wind Cave and Jewel Cave
Aparently 3 American Indians found a tunnel:
"They found the passage strewn with bones. Perhaps human bones. At the end, the tunnel opened up into a cave with an underground lake some 25 yards long and more than 15 yards wide. Around the lake were large quantities of gold."

They can't, and they didn't and your "Doctor" never even existed.

The Dropa Stone story is not only a hoax, it's an admitted hoax.

Admitted in the pages of Fortean Times magazine:

Quote

In 1995, British author David Gamon admitted in Fortean Times that he had written Sungods in Exile as a hoax under the Agamon pseudonym,[1] inspired by the popularity of Erich von Däniken and his books on ancient astronauts. The source material for the story was taken from a 1960s magazine article in Russian Digest, and a 1973 French science fiction novel Les disques de Biem-Kara, (The discs of Biem-Kara), by Daniel Piret.

Not to be a party pooper but I'm missing the "mystery" part. Devil's tower is a beautiful natural formation. The actual Black hills has lots and LOTS of underground caves - explored and unexplored - well known by indians and tourists. It has LOTS of fools gold and small quantities of loose placer gold that you can pan for. It also had one of the largest deep gold mines in the world at one time - Homestake.

I'd love to know what Puma Punku    and   Tiwanaku looked like when they were 'new'  ,  they probably went thorough stages.. but it would be interesting to see what was built with the H blocks and  what was connected with that set of stairs at Tiwanaku.   .. those things look  VERY VERY old and worn.   They might not be.. but they sure look it!
