That's a historian's problem, dude. We know that one of those models is right, but records kept on hardened mud tend to disintegrate.

Verdict: not guilty, but a mistrial is declared due to prosecution's incompetence. :-D Bring back Yoda!

Really, it's like saying "we don't know whether Abraham Lincoln was 6'3 or 6'4, therefore he didn't exist"

you don't get to decide your own verdict you fool. :-D what world do you live in? it's why you have peers.

So in closing. i charge neato lacks reading comprehension. he clearly repeated what i said, just not as witty. he clearly thought i said scientists 2500 years ago were smarter than today, when i said nothing like that. i even went out of my way to highlight the very words that said so ... Neato's only defense was he did well on a test that has been dummied down to get as many passing scores as possible. Not to mention, mummy and daddy probably paid for one or two "practice" reading comprehension tests prior to the official one. As my peers, you have no choice but to find the defendant .. guilty. :-]

kthnks

I'm pretty sure that today's scientists could figure out a much more effective way of building pyramids than the Egyptians used.
more efficient, sure. im not saying, nor have i said anywhere that they had more knowledge, as in volumes of, than we do today. its just that they did things that we can't explain, even today. and besides, i was clearly using neato logic there.

I think it is very clear that we are way smarter. We can build way better pyramids, we reverse engineered their dance moves and turned it into an 80s pop song, and most of us had the common sense to move out of the desert.

Summary of topic:

1. wrveres calls me out for a lack of reading comprehension
2. I deny it, of course
3. wrveres makes an incomprehensible post

Well, looks like I've been proven wrong. :-{

it wasn't a desert when they were there. Not like it is now. I blame Al Gore.
