who isn't fascinated by easter island?


i sure as heck am (and have always been). now this is a damn good theory, but theory it is. however, i have not one doubt the statues were/are where they were supposed to be. i too don't think they were haphazardly placed.

Scientists reveal the secrets of Easter Island's fallen idols
By Cahal Milmo

According to Polynesian legend, the stone monoliths of Easter Island

were put into place by a king who invoked divine power to command the statues to walk. Archaeologists have long preferred the more prosaic theory that they were heaved into position along a network of purpose-built tracks.

But the first British archaeological expedition in nearly a century to the archipelago, whose giant artifacts have long baffled academics and explorers, has arrived at a conclusion which threatens to overturn a 50-year-old consensus about the role played by the island's ancient road system.
