ClintonHammond, there is a fine line between attacking a post and attacking the poster. Be careful with how you chose your words. We do not tolorate personal attacks here at the Raven. We can act as mature people here, right?

That Coral Castle story is very intriguing but what I don't get is why did Edward Leedskalnin not tell anyone about how he moved the coral rocks?? I just don't get it!!!

As for the mystery Hill, I find it strange that Celts were in America. I have conduted a little research and have looked at the photo's of the so called "Oracle Chamber". From what I can make out (this is only hypothesis by the way), the Chamber seems to be built at a later stage (I don't know what era), it looks very advanced compared to the burial chambers I have seen in Scotland. But eh, what do I know??

Damn was gonna show you my photo's of the burial Chamber at the Callanish Standing stones in Isle of Harris - Outer Hebrides and my photo's of the Barpa Langais ruins South Uist but the Scanner is playing up . Will post them up when I manage to fix the scanner problem. You can then compared for yourself.

Have a look at these pictures instead;

David Blaine is for entertainment purposes only!! Whereas Edward Leedskalnin may have been able to change the way we use our energy source, which may be more resourceful than the current use of fossil fuels.

Excellent point and a good reason the fuff guys should not have beaten up the lil nerd and have him move the entire castle by hand 15 miles 2 years after building it.

Edward Leedskalnin, unfortunatly is deceased and choose not to share directly.

However, Edward Leedskalnin, did publish 2 or 3 books and while once dismissed as a lunitic, many popular scientist today are working toward and have full confidence in harnnessing the magnetic used that he seemed to have prefected so well.

They predict this will alter the future as we know it and are already having great suscess using magtism as an antigraviety agent.

You may want to study up on the little man some more and his works and his books.

"the magnetic used that he seemed to have prefected"

Wow.. that's pretty incoherent... but I think I understand what you're' trying to say...

With decent block-and-tackle, one wouldn't NEED "Magnetics" or any other such hog-wash...

Un fortunatly your mind does not extend to the outter reaches of what I try to espouse so coherently but I understand how you may have misread it or been a bit vauge on this as you are usually busy tossing insults of ignorance at the posters here. ( I love you )

Buzzzzzzzzzzzzz wrong !! close BUT no bannana and you get the gong!!!

The correct answer is :

While we have tried with the most modern equipment to date to cut a single block of this corral that he used and elevate it on to a truck and haul it and have susceeded, the lenghth of time required for this process using out most modern tech. to date would have taken us 50 or so years to duplicate what he done with out any modern devises of any kind in a matter of weeks. To boot he was a near midget that loaded 10 ton blocks of coral with our any devises and better yet while we cna no lift them wisth some of our largest equipment not made when he done that job, We cannot cut it out with our best stuff as he did by hand with not automated tools.

He may have had titanium beaver teeth.

Please do study on this man before you choose to post erronous information. thsi was not in the pyramid days as well but in the 1960 range and folks still live that knew him personally.

A teaser to it all:

\As Ed Leedskalnin gave his tours, he would explain each structure in detail. Some of the more incredible of his works was an obelisk monolith weighing nearly 30 tons, twice the weight of any stone in the Great pyramid. At forty feet tall it was taller than the great monolith at Stonehenge. This he quarried and also erected by himself. He carved the huge stones into intricate designs. He created a rocking chair weighing three tons that could be rocked with a finger. He made a spiral staircase from one piece of stone that led to a subterranean refrigerator. Another of his accomplishments was a five thousand pound heart-shaped coral rock table with a red blooming ixora growing from its center.
