    Numbers 24:8

    God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of a unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.

    I find no reference to the site Ancient Origins Β  as being a pseudo science site. They make no claims that are not back up by the evidence. The archeological texts however have claimed without evidence that these feats were accomplished with copper and rock tools. Whereas masons are confounded to reproduce such, even with modern tools.

    Andesite, a rock that cannot be cut with known ancient tools was the material of choice… Is andesite not a generic name for specific types of rock just as sedimentary is? Who is the expert on ancient tools that claims that it cannot be cut. Was this known to geologists before the invention of Tiktok?

    There are theories on how it was done but nothing involving primitive tools, but rather advanced ingenuity:

    Fellow Unbelievers and Michael17,

    I thought I had posted this last night, but evidently it didn’t go through.

    Andesite–Wikipedia
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andesite

    Yes, it is a real and distinct rock, however, since it is a composite of silica-poor basalt and silica-rich rhyolite, it has silica of different proportions. I’m not a Geologist, but I do know from playing with silica that it chips easily. Likewise, obsidian is also volcanic and also chips easily and can form arrowheads and knives so sharp that surgeons to this day still use obsidian blades.

    Since volcanic rocks and silica both chip easily, andesite doesn’t seem all that insurmountable.

    Now regarding body mods, there is much truth in this too. French author Victor Hugo spoke of “The Comprachicos.” These were children in Asia kidnapped at birth and raised in vases until they outgrew the vases, when the vases were chipped open to reveal vase-shaped children who were showcased for freak-show entertainment of royalty and rabble. Barbaric!

    Fortunately, there are also temporary, friendly, painless medical ways of using the same technique to make children develop stronger, harder skulls and seal gaps between skull plates.

    I’ve seen these before and had my own conjectures, but I was always hesitant to ask parents about them. Now that I know what they are, I am happy to see that littles ones benefit from this properly applied technology.

    But, yeah, Michael17, this is easily, rationally explainable phenomena here, no angel and human Celestial Fever going on here.
