Immortal Monday- How and When of Ancient Structures

Things didn’t go to plan this week and my little personal elves interfered with the invasion that was to take place on today’s Immortal Monday. Instead, I’d like to leave you with a little something for when you have the time for some serious viewing. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. If you were intrigued by my post on the pyramids you’ll want to find time to watch these. I saw a much longer documentary over a year ago and was slightly obsessed. Puma Punky defies the way we look at ancient civilizations.

I know, it’s longer than the ideal 1:00, but it’s worth it. Trust me. It may get the wheels in your mind turning on new story ideas. 🙂

What do you think? What happened here? My mind goes crazy with theories! Do you buy into the idea of Aliens? Could men more skilled than today’s carpenters create these structures or did they have help?

If you are hungry for more and can carve out the time, check this out. It will challenge what you know of our history. Of when and where life began. It is a discovery dating back beyond that of Noah’s flood,  before the Bible has life beginning.

Places such as these makes us stop and ponder our world and our place in it. What is the real history of this planet? I’m curious, are you?


 I always appreciate your time and love it when you take the time to comment. Huge thanks! If you enjoyed this piece or any of my previous posts, I’d be delighted to have you follow via email or RSS for any future posts!

    LOVE it…makes my imagination spin wildly!!! I wonder?!?!?!?!?!

      You should hear what I am listening to now! Oh my! Our world is full of inspiring possibilities. Yes – Eeeeekeee!!! 🙂

    I wonder too! Boy did we ever go into the dark ages. All that engineering scraped off parchments back when the Romans took over and then their little problem with lead pipes…..???

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      I truly did, didn’t I. LOL. Who knew people even dated back that far!

    I wonder if having no access or knowledge of today’s technology forced people to accomplish such tasks on their own. And maybe not knowing the (seemingly) impossibility of it all took away self doubt and other barriers. If not, I vote aliens! LOL

    Great post, chica!

      Does this prove that necessity is the mother of invention? Have we gotten too complacent and lazy? We may never know. Maybe we are not meant to know. Hmm.

    My husband watches these shows on tv all the time. Ancient Aliens and all that stuff on the history channel. Does make you wonder. If it is aliens who make such amazing things, can you just imagine what their planet, or where ever they come from, must look like? Their architecture must be mind-blowing and their technology would probably blow us away.

    Fun stuff, Debra.

      I have laughed at some of those shows and others have made me stop and wonder. But to the man who asked why everything was not built like skyscrapers and not like pyramids if built by aliens I say, to stand the test of time and the elements. And that they have, have they not? It’s smart architecture. IF any of this was influenced by life from another planet, that other world would definitely be something worth seeing. No doubt!

    Very interesting videos…and they do set the imagination in gear! I have a theory, but I think I’ll keep it to myself, lol. However these ‘cities’ came into being, I’m glad people have the patience to unearth them. But I do question the whole carbon dating thing. Just because experts came up with a way that they think is accurate doesn’t necessarily mean that it is.

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      That is true, Kristy. We could easily find out tomorrow that they had it figured all wrong. Wouldn’t that be something?

  6. Reetta RaitanenReetta Raitanen

    Fascinating videos! I had never heard of Göbekli Tepe before. Thanks for sharing. This really makes you to wonder what world was like back then. What else was there? And who built this place?

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      I agree. I love trying to imagining it. Of course we can never be sure. For all we know they were space aliens! 😀 Hehehe

  7. Prudence MacLeodPrudence MacLeod

    Fascinating, Deborah. Yes, I too am curious about the true history of this planet and our early role in that history. great post.

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      Thank you, Prudence. Curiosity is a wonderful thing. It may have killed the cat, but without it we would never expand our knowledge base. 😉

    I’m a huge architecture fan – from early times in history to today. This stuff just amazes me.

    I believe it’s partly that they just used a lot more of their brain power than we do, and part of me thinks that they had some help with the technology that would have been required to make those cuts, lift the stones, and all the pre-planning that had to occur.

    This is so far over our modern-day heads that the divine had to have been involved in this process – whether through inspiration, help, who knows what else.

    I could go on and on theorizing. It boggles our little brains. Great post.

    And I had never heard of the Puma site. Thanks for sharing it.

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      Awesome! Another architecture fan. I think we truly have become lazy in the brain. We depend too much on machines to figure things out for us. The man of yesterday didn’t have such luxuries, he had to use his noggin.

      Then again, look at the cuts on some of those stones. How in the world did they do that? And what could have blown Puma Punku to smithereens like that? It looks like the result of a massive explosion, does it not?

      So many questions left unanswered. *Sigh*

      • mj monaghanmj monaghan

        Good questions. To cause that damage, there would have to have been something pretty powerful.

        I just can’t for the life of me, figure out how they made the precision drill holes that they did.

        I think people used so much more of their brains than we do today.

    This video is amazing. I’m keeping it open in my browser so I can watch it again later and take notes. Great research material!

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      Ooh! So glad you like it. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since I saw it over a year ago. It’s the stuff mysteries are made of. I so want to know! Who has the time travel devise? 😉

  10. Fabio BuenoFabio Bueno

    As I mentioned in the pyramids post, some ancient structures are featured in one of my novels. I am fascinated by the mystery behind them.
    Aliens. Definitely aliens 🙂

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      Yes. I am curious about this novel of yours. Have you listened to any of Graham Hancock’s theories? Serena included the link for his book. His theories regarding the pyramids are extremely thought provoking. I think you would find them very fascinating. They clearly lean towards aliens. Honestly, religious or not (I hold a strong faith, btw), we would be extremely arrogant to think we were all alone in the vast universe. That would make for a lot of wasted space. 😐

    I’m always amazed by what people accomplished thousands of years ago. I went to Pompeii and those houses look pretty awesome for being built almost 2000 years ago. I wonder how much we have forgotten…

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      Oh, Kourtney. I can’t tell you how jealous I am of you right now. Pompeii is in the top three of my “must” list. I want to go so bad. We have had two trips planned and have had to cancel because of work. 😛 Life is different now. I don’t know when or if we will get the chance. *Sigh* I watched a documentary on it and what I saw was simply amazing. People back then put so much more thought and effort into their surroundings. They were more than just buildings. They were art.

  12. Louise BehielLouise Behiel

    These artifacts certainly make me wonder. did they have help? are we alone? or ????

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      They do truly make you wonder. That’s for sure. We may never know in our lifetime.

  13. Debra EveDebra Eve

    Absolutely fascinating, Debra. Was trying to figure why I didn’t study Gobekli Tepe in archaeology grad school, but it was discovered the year I graduated. So much I’ve lost track of!

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      Isn’t it amazing how life continues to move along after we graduate? LOL It’s hard to keep up on it all, isn’t it? Glad you enjoyed the post. Thanks for stopping by Debra.

    • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

      I’ve heard of this book, but I’ve never read it. I have a very open mind. Anything is possible. I heard that even the Vatican has accepted the possibility. Not that I need their blessing to believe what I believe.

      • Serena Dracis, AuthorSerena Dracis, Author

        Sorry it left such a huge image on your comments! I didn’t realize an Amazon link would post so ginormously! It wasn’t exactly the easiest of reads, and he sometimes made assumptions I couldn’t quite follow, but overall a really excellent book with compelling evidence for highly advanced civilizations lost to antiquity. Graham Hancock is one of my favorite authors on the subject. MIchael Cremo, of Forbidden Archaeology is another.

        • Debra KristiDebra Kristi

          Ha ha! I remember the first time I put a link in. I was like “Wowa!” LOL. No worries. I listed to an interview with him on youtube while I was working. It was really interesting. Thanks for bringing him up.
