Arthur Posnansky, followed by Kurt Bilau have proposed a date of circa BC as the date of fall of Tiwanaku. There are also reports of pre-Incan structures.

By analogy it is possible to determine that the last glacial period took place posnans,y the Southern Hemisphere at the same time as ponsansky the Northern, since there is no atmospheric nor cosmic factor that we have been able to discover, that could have prevented it. According to it reference is obviously made to a glacial epoch in which the sun lacked thermic power or was not so visible and as a result did not benefit human beings with its life-giving rays. Since these ruins were already debris in 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.

The most important thing in this little posnannsky, which we have decided to call “sanctum sanctorum”, is, in the first place, a block of trachyte which now is split, located in the most prominent part of the place and which until now we have called ponansky block”, fig 26 Fig 26 This in posnasky time, as is indicated by the notches still to be seen on its surface, had a superstructure on which, in our opinion, there was to be placed the block which at the present time we call the Sun Door.

Later, it awarded him two gold medals, one inthe other in I have now posnnsky my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. When the independence movement in the State of Acre broke out inPosnansky supported the Bolivian Government; your River boat, which it renamed with the name of Iris, to participate in the blockade of the rio Acre put at the disposal of the authorities of La Paz during the contest.

During his time in the Adturo and Royal Academy of Pola, he made several extensive training voyages, which took him many places, including the Easter Islands in the South Pacific Oceanas a part of his shipboard training. Surprisingly, Morrison did not mention the mysterious puquios of the Nazca region fwhich, with the aid of satellite imagery ghave been shown to have been posnansku of a sophisticated hydraulic system that supplied water to an extremely arid locality.

Naturally, the story did not stand up to scrutiny k and slowly melted away. This fauna possibly disappeared at the end of the last period of glaciation on the Altiplano, as is shown by the alluvial strata.

In that age, especially in the first period, they did not yet build houses; their temples were semi-subterranean buildings. It is not a new thing to study the age of archaeological monuments by astronomical means. The erosion of the blocks of the First Period which are exclusively of red sandstone and of their very primitive sculptures on a calcareous volcanic tufa, show an abrasion extending over thousands of years.


Because of his loyalty to and support of Bolivia in this conflict, he lost all of his properties in Brazil. For reasons also set forth in previous chapters, it has been noted that when the observer stands at plsnansky center of the west wall of Kalasasaya of the Second Period, the north and south pillars of the east wall are so located that the sun would rise at the solstices on the outer poxnansky of these pillars.

Had Allen not done so, I suspect that Morrison might have produced a more detailed book himself as apparently he and a colleague, Mark Howell, had built up quite a dossier on the subject. Farrell has studied Patristics, which is concerned with the study posnannsky the early church Fathers and, in my opinion, he should have stuck with that subject.

Allen claims that the large plain to the west of the lake is the plain mentioned by Plato as being adjacent to the city of Atlantis. The purveyors of this nonsense know that they will be long dead before the icecap melts, if ever, and the irrationality of posnnasky claims are finally exposed.

The controversial c Fuente Magna bowl is also offered as evidence of this idea. But we feel certain that in the preceding paragraphs we have outlined in posbansky clear and synthetic form, the nature of such proofs, which are: After conducting studies of naval engineering, at the end of the Decade ofduring the rush of the rubber, he worked at a river transport company, atruro which he made numerous expeditions and explorations by the Amazon of Bolivia and Brazil.

And now to return to the method which the priest-astronomers of Tihuanacu may have used, we should call attention to an extremely important fact.

The ruins are scattered over a number of square miles through which the Guayqui-La Paz railway was constructed, which was responsible for the breaking up of many monuments to provide ballast.

He has published two books in Spanish on Atlantis [][] based on conversations with the Chilean nazi Miguel Serrano. We feel, also, that our observations will be of help to those who in the future, establish themselves in the region under study, and having the necessary time and resources, face the study in all its amplitude, correcting errors which we may have made, and thus shedding greater light on the purposes for which that magnificent temple and stone calendar was constructed and on the age of these notable ruins.

Between these platforms one finds two more which, in our opinion, come from the Second and Third Periods. The difference between the amplitude marked in the Sun Temple Kalasasaya and the amplitude in is 36′ 24″. In our opinion, it has its origin in the discovery of gigantic bones of extinct animal species by the Indians, in places where the currents of water revealed them. Posnansky, Arthur Overview. Both words mean ” period of darkness.

But this is the case only at the present time, because the terraces of the artificial hill of Akapana which formerly were supported by retaining walls, are crumbled. As captain and owner of the shallow-draught steamer and blockade runnerIrisPosnansky rescued the survivors of the Acre garrison during the Acre Campaign in Brazil.


These were naturally of lower level and existed much before the last glaciation. If this curve should vary with future studies and trials in the coming centuries of exact astronomy, then the calculation in regard to the age of Tihuanacu would also vary.

New York, New York. The most important thing in this little shrine, which we have decided to call “sanctum sanctorum”, is, in the first place, a block of trachyte which now is split, located in the most prominent part of the place and which until now we have called “observation block”, fig 26 Fig The Sun Door which was found lying on its face on the ground, has been preserved in wonderful condition with all its inscriptions; but its back, and especially the end exposed to the adverse atmospheric conditions, shows an enormous wearing away.

Conspiracy theorist David Wilcock has managed to weave the Atlantis in Antarctica story into his twisted idea that the world is controlled by a cabal of evil alien and human conspirators. Its activities led him to be one of the pioneers in numerous scientific and artistic activities in Bolivia. Because of this greater height above sea level its climate, after the Tertiary period, was never torrid; and because of this same elevation naturally not as pronounced as that of the present time and owing to the proximity to the equator, that glacial period lasted there much less time as compared with other lands of the South; thus there could develop there, in a relatively remote period First Period of Tihuanacu great human cultures, which probably did not yet exist in such a grade of development on other parts of our planet.

This sacred symbol, like the cross of the Redeemer in Christian religion, spread from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska. The total length of Kalasasaya from east to west without the balcony wall is: During the Third Reich Posnansky wrote about racial science that supported Nordicism, which underpinned a lot of Nazi ideology.

See also Introduction to American Indian Art. These in the main have proceeded in a parallel fashion, since for more than two years we have discussed the different “working hypotheses”. There one sees, for example, the monumental south platform of the First Period which shows such erosion that it gives the appearance of a rough stone just removed from the quarry, since the details of the staircase embossments are almost completely erased; the other platform to the north shows an abrasion not yet so complete.

In sharp contrast is the claim l by Roger Elefant that later construction at Tiwanaku was carried out by the Vikings! Studies of this sort have been carried out on the monuments of Egypt, Asia, Europe and England.
