Many people have tried to figure out how the ancients lifted those megalithic blocks.   Some of these stones weigh more than 2000 tons.  The blocks on the Great pyramid weigh about 400 tons each and there are millions of them.  For those who  don’t know, 1 ton equals 2000 lbs.  400 tons is 800,000 lbs a block, 2000 tons is 4 million lbs a block.  Our machinery today would struggle to lift these blocks.  To get to the bottom of how they built the megaliths, we have to look at one major problem science likes to lie about.  That problem is the dinosaurs.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to say they used the dinosaurs to lift the rocks like on the Flintstones.  Though that makes mores sense than most theories.
