The sad truth is that regarding the Trilithon, some scholars have mental blocks its own size.

Admissions that blocks weighing over a 1000 metric tons were quarried and transported in prehistoric times would invite uncomfortable questions on what technology had made it all possible.

They are in a class of their own, by far the heaviest stones ever transported on this Earth - Super-cyclopean, Hyper-colossal, Über-duper, or a term of your own, take a pick.

The much greater erosion of the big Baalbek blocks qualifies as material proof of their much greater age. This is how the stone looks (see below) when it is almost like new after having been recently sanded. One also finds plenty of circumstantial evidence undermining the official version of Trilithon's origins: a) Absence of Baalbek records Above all, Rome records no claim to the incredible retaining wall.

Sizes of these blocks vary from big to unbelievably big, the largest building blocks anywhere.

The bottom three layers are composed from small blocks.

Clearly, the record setting engineers from Baalbek, had they existed, could have also managed the task of transporting the relatively light Lateran Obelisk.

The fact that they were nowhere to be found, no matter, how crucial the task, indicates that they simply did not exist.

d) Roman and Megalithic styles of building Orthodox scholars of today scoff at all suggestions that Romans had not brought the great blocks to the temple site, despite the fact that building with megalithic blocks was not at all in the Roman style, and was no longer practised in those days. The Colosseum still standing in Rome is a good example of a classic Roman concrete structure.

In this earthquake-prone region, this is probably a measure to safeguard the big blocks.

During strong earthquakes, the mass of smaller blocks moves like jelly, relatively speaking, and absorbs most of the quake's destructive force. Its blocks differ by being: 1) Uneroded, of a different color and texture 2) Much smaller 3) Uniform The Arabs had a fortress here.

This block trio is world-renowned as the "Trilithon".

If we think within the official academic framework of history, Augustus had no obvious reasons for selecting Baalbek as the temple's building site.

At that time, it was of no special religious significance, apart from being in the centre of a burial region, in the midst of of thousands of rock cut tombs.
