Has anyone seen scientific proof on how the 900 ton blocks of limestone were cut, moved and installed?

I watched a video of this idiot who stated the Roman's could never have the technology, as we can barely do it today.

There are even larger stones at the quarry, some even possibly 1500-2000 tons.

That is incredibly stupid.  Everyone knows the aliens didn't use ultra sound to melt the stone.  It's super high vibrations actually shattered the stone along the lines they were cutting.  You would only melt the stone if you were joining 2 together.

Ahaha ...

Yah, everybody knows that aliens were around to assist the early civilizations ... for example, the Great Gazoo showed Fred & Barney many tricks

Watching this video of Kevin Butcher scrambling around the ruins you get an idea of the massive scale of the place.
