Many of these claims did not originate overnight and can be traced back to a man named Arthur Posnansky, an engineer and amateur archaeologist who visited the site and did some research on it during the s.
In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: The following other wikis use this file: We repeat that as a basis for the hypothetical calculation of the age of Tihuanacu, or rather, for the investigation of the approximate age of these ruins, there have been used. The blocks of red sandstone of the external north and south walls of Kalasasaya, which when they were constructed, had a regular form, were rather well carved and covered with ideosymbolic inscriptions on the inside, which is shown by a fragment saved by chance, Figs.
He had some ideas regarding race and evolution a. In that period, consequently, these ruins were some 34 m.
Well, the dating was done before the discovery of carbon dating. The site was later dated using that technique, and, in combination with proper archaeological digs, it was found that the site’s current megaliths and sculptures were only added to the site in the period between AD and AD although the site itself is estimated to have been inhabited as far back as BC by small peasant communities. After being wounded and captured by Brazilian forces, he escaped and became a refugee in Europe.
Posnansky, in two earlier books, proposed a prehistoric Germanic migration to South America, a theory supported by Edmund Kiss.

New York, New York. Since we have exhausted the subject of the ponansky angles of the Second Period of Tihuanacu, it is necessary to consider the angles of the construction which is within the Kalasasaya of the Third Period. In recognition of his accomplishments, the German Government conferred on him an honorary title of Professor in It has now lost its meaning owing to the present cultural state of native population.

Perhaps the person who carried out this class of investigations with most skill and understanding was Sir Norman LockyerPresident of the Physical Solar Observatory of London, who, inin his detailed work “Stonehenge and Other British Stone Monuments”, supplied the necessary foundation for the methodological investigation of the epochs in which there were constructed the monuments of remote antiquity.
Fiction over fact Pseudohistory. One of the decisive proofs of the age of the man of Tihuanacu, is the subterranean dwelling.
Most widely held works about Arthur Posnansky. Even the blocks of extremely hard andesitic lava of the Second Period, especially those of the east facade of Kalasasaya Fig. This page was last edited on 4 Juneat Archenhold, Director of the Observatory of Treptow Berlin called our attention to this notable publication. Even today, after a devastation of forty years, some remains are still posnasky, although they are not as abundant as in that period.
However the earliest suggestion of Antarctica as the home of Atlantis seems to have come from a Chilean professor, Roberto Rengifowho also proposed, inthat Antarctica was the original home of modern man until a catastrophic pole shift forced a migration northward into the Americas and eventually worldwide!
Tihuanacu, the Cradle of American Man. The calculations based on this figure indicate a rather old age in the light of our manner of thinking today posnabsky archaeological matters; if there were not many other coefficients, not astronomical but of another sort, which corroborate in an unequivocal and unquestionable manner the enormous age of Tihuanacuand which we shall discuss at the end of the present chapter, it would not have been worth while to go so deeply into the astronomical studies which took more than a quarter of a century of the writer’s life.
Since these ruins were already debris psonansky the period of the Inca Empire, capricious commentaries and conjectures were made about their existence and the men who built them, and especially about their age.
It seems, moreover, that a certain number of them were reconstructed and renovated during the Third Period, a period in which use was made of the works of former times. Afterwards there occurred that other inclination so zrthur a short time ago of the last post-glacial lake or Lake Tihuanacu the shore line of which a we have pointed out, we followed on one of our last expeditions for kilometers. The purveyors artbur this nonsense know that they will be long dead before the icecap melts, if ever, and the irrationality of their claims are finally exposed.
Zrthur the most interesting thing is that if one observes, at a distance of five meters toward the west of the aforementioned observation block, where there are still remains or a construction, the centers of the Kalasasayas 98 of the west balcony wall, one notes that the sun posnxnsky in the center of the pillars “A” and “K” at the solstices and on the dates noted on the accompanying diagram.
Atlantologists also use the exact same “evidence” as the alien enthusiasts, but replace the benevolent aliens from Alpha Centauri with equally benevolent or patronising, depending on your point of view refugees from Atlantis. Farrell has studied Patristics, which is concerned with the study of the early church Fathers and, in my opinion, he should have stuck with that subject. This value touches the curve where the ordinate-axis and the abscissa-axis cross each other.
These monuments give evidence of a most remote age which cannot be expressed in figures and although they are not found in Tihuanacu itself, but at some 25 km. After being a refugee in Europe, Posnansky moved to Bolivia to claim compensation for his services posnanksy this country. In the light of what has been set down before, it is not possible to doubt its purpose.
This argument is tackled in Appendix 6 of T he A tlantis B lueprint. This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it. Fig 11 Many pages could be written to enumerate pisnansky destructive effects of erosion on the blocks of Tihuanacu which, notwithstanding the quality of the material of which they were composed, and the period during which they were protected from the exterior elements, suffered the effects of time in an intense fashion.
