    I have scene t.v. news (1970s) where they make these . As I remember they cook them in donkey dung to make them look old . Eric Von Daniken , the chariots of the Gods guy had pics of theses in his books . They found the guy that had made the stones for Von Daniken , he had them carve pics of aliens and u.f.o.s ect. then make them look old , for his books .( 1970s) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Von_Daniken

    Really, you guys are just like the creationists that say the dinosaur bones were planted by atheists. Like some guy working for Daniken went to all the trouble of carving 45,000 stones and burying them with all these Inca. You don't need bible fairy tales, you've got your own, huh.

    You ain't got a link to the supposed "real stones" yours only shows casts, you got nothing.

    It is possable that humans were around the same time dinosaurs were . The only thing I was saying was that there is a guy in Latten America making these stones . One can believe in God and think of the Bible as more of a nice book , but not the lit. truth . A few people think we were "seeded " hear by aliens , a few people think we are all just the left over thoughts living of the serfice of a black hole .

    maybe they looked at bones or maybe they dreamed up fantasy creatures that happened to look like them. why is this a big deal that needs some big deal explanation?

    yep, Could be we are just energy, everything is just configurations of energy.
    All this seeming material physicality just an illusion.

    Thtread title says 'try to explain this'. So don't get offended when people try to do just that.

    Just as plausible indeed :2thumbsup:

    Had this been presented as a curiosity to wonder about then cool, but it's put up as to discredit science and bolster the idea of creationism. Always a bad way to present "evidence" IMO

    You need to get a grip on reality too. How is asking "How the hell did the Inca know about dinosaurs?" an attempt to discredit science? Try to resist the urge to be a troll tool.

    In my earlier post I stated that Von Daniken used stones simular to these in his book . That they found the guy that had made them. (1960-70s some where ) It is my understanding these stones are made for tourists . Humans may have lived at the same time of the dinosuars , but it will take something like finding bones that can be carbon 14 dated to that time . On the Bible or any other reglious text , they were written by men/women as more of a moral code book . They serve to hold a society togher . With out the moral guide lines a reglious text offers there would be only anarky . Sory I am a bad speller and lost my dictonary .

    Well you've presumed that the inca indeed did know, while we're still debating the validity of said stones. The article you provided is far from informative, it simply states that dude found some stones and they have carvings that seem to depict several species of dinosaur, and that many anthropologist discredit the artifacts, and that the reader should make their own conclusion.

    One thing I noticed is, one of these carvings appears to depict a triceratops, a species that is now being considered by some circles of scientists to have not even existed at all!

    Science has been re-examining the notions of how dinosaurs actually looked and they are changing with every new discovery.

    "Dinosaurs are not what they used to be. I’m not talking about birds being dinosaurs and all that, but about those extinct giants of the Mesozoic we all grew up loving. As new studies and discoveries are made, dinosaurs are becoming so much different from the way we always imagined them that, today, many of us have trouble recognizing even our childhood favorites.

    I give you ten classic dinosaurs that have changed radically due to new paleontological discoveries. And they may still change a lot in the future! Note: each entry has two images – the first is the previous image of the dinosaur, and the second is the new. Dinosaur before and after shots!"

    I could be wrong on this , but as I remember some one looked at the lines on some of the stones and found there was little or no oxadation proving they were morden . They just look too new and sharp to be very old .

    Now that I think about it, it is a pretty romantic notion...:daisy:

    Basilio Uschuya is a farmer who supplied the younger Cabrera with thousands of the stones.

    Here is a nice explanation.
