Which Ancient Monument Did You Build In A Past Life?

 

 

There are many engineering marvels that were created even when a trace of modern machinery existed. Many of them baffle the scientists until today like the Pyramids of Egypt or the Stonehenge in England.

Let us discuss a few of these iconic monuments:

1.The Great Sphinx

The Great Sphinx is believed to be made out of a single piece of limestone is located in Giza, Egypt. It dates from the reign of King Khafre and depicts his face. It is among the list of the world’s largest structure. It measures around 242 feet long and 61 feet in height. If you look at it closely then you would realize the structure is of a lion’s body with the head of a human. Most of the historians believe that it was built by Khafre but some believe that it was built by his brother Redjedef.

2.Stonehenge

This structure had puzzled historians, archaeologists, and scientists on how this structure was built. It was built in the pre-historic times and took around 1600 years to build. Located in Wiltshire, England it is comprised of roughly 100 large stones that are placed in a circular layout. It baffles people because its outer structure is made from sandstone slabs while the inner part is made up of bluestones which is believed to be from Preseli Hills in Wales which is 200 miles away from it. One wonders how all that was possible even without a wheel. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site from 1986.

3.Roman Theater of Merida

This theater is also built in the pre-historic times. It is believed to be built by Agrippa who was the son-in-law of Augustus in the 15th or16th B.C. It was promoted as the provincial capital of Lusitania. It is said that Romans were not very fond of theatres but since it was the capital it could no go without theatrical games.

There are many other monuments which leave us awe-struck on how our ancestors built such awesome structures. Play the fun quiz to know which of these you built in your previous life.

“One word absent from a sentence, or misinterpreted incorrectly, can change the entire meaning of a sentence. One word can change the meaning of everything. Before you believe anything about God or anybody, ask yourself how well do you trust the transmitter, translator or interpreter. And if you have never met them, then how do you know if the knowledge you acquired is even right? One hundred and twenty-five years following every major event in history, all remaining witnesses will have died. How well do you trust the man who has stored his version of a story? And how can you put that much faith into someone you don’t know?”

“A historic transition is occurring, barely noticed. Slowly, quietly, imperceptibly, religion is shriveling in America, as it has done in Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and other advanced societies. Supernatural faith increasingly belongs to the Third World. The First World is entering the long-predicted Secular Age, when science and knowledge dominate. The change promises to be another shift of civilization, like past departures of the era of kings, the time of slavery, the Agricultural Age, the epoch of colonialism, and the like. Such cultural transformations are partly invisible to contemporary people, but become obvious in retrospect.”
― James A. Haught
