NASA-Lunar outpost or archive for humanity?How would one get a library card for that?
To protect against a nuclear bomb, a plague, a natural disaster, an asteroid collision or some other doomsday event, scientists are lobbying to have a reserve library of human scientific and cultural achievements built and maintained on the moon.
Supposing they get up there to do that and find one already there built by one of earth's previous - but forgotten - civilizations? What a howler that would be.
Considering the age of the earth and the apparent time it took us to go from cavemen to hi-tech junkies, its not impossible that this planet could have had a previous civilization more advanced than we are today that was totally wiped out by some unknown world-wide cataclysm. Could have been a huge asteroid, a pandemic disease, a nasty war or just one of the super volcanoes blowing it's top, maybe even... previous global warming!
It would sure explain a lot of our myths and legends, even a lot of religions.
Maybe even tell us who really carved the Baalbek trilithon stones and the Hajar el Gouble(Stone of the South), the largest carved stone ever found.
There are two men standing on the Stone of the South in the above picture. The stone is estimated to weigh over 1,100 tons. The trilithon stones are just a bit smaller.
If one listens to today's "experts", you'll have to believe that primitives in loincloths with copper chisels and hemp rope carved and moved these monstrous stones.
The picture below shows a replica of one of the Romans largest and most advanced cranes. It is capable of lifting 7,000kg. Sounds impressive until you convert that to tons. A Kilogram (kg) is a bit under 2 3/4 pounds, 7,000 of them is only around 19,000 pounds, or just under 10 tons. Whoopee. And the Romans, who arrived on the scene long after the Baalbek foundation was built using those 1,000 ton stones, had much better stuff than loincloths and copper tools.
Can we lift 1,100 tons today? Sure. Below is a picture of the hooks on a floating crane capable of lifting 3,700 tons.
Imagine primitives in loincloths using copper tools and hemp rope trying to build something like that.
But somebody carved and moved those stones. Maybe a moon library from the past could tell us.
