The Dolmens: Giants' Toys

"Dolmen" is a word that is used to describe certain megalithic (made out of giant stones) structures that exist world-wide, which no one has any really good explanation for.

A dolmen can, in it's simplest form be described as three large rocks, formed like the Greek letter Pi.  That is, there are two vertical stones on the side, forming two walls, with another single stone laid across the top, forming a roof.  These structures are also called such things as portal barrows, portal tombs, tunnel graves, or quoit.  

While they are all constructed of large stones, some are larger than others.  The one in the image from Brittany, France, is about the size and weight of a house.

The darwinist propaganda says that these are all ancient tombs, which were constructed when hundreds of prehistoric people banding together to raise these stones and then, after putting large amounts of dirt around the sides of the barrow, dragging the capstone on top, using the surrounding mounds of dirt as a ramp.  Erosion then washed away the soil, leaving the interior rocks standing free.

No great surprise that there are problems with that.  While there are often ancient grave sites in or around the dolmens, there is no real evidence that the people in the graves built the dolmen.  People will often bury their dead near a significant monument or other well-known feature, using it as a sort of memorial, converted to honoring their own people.

In almost every instance, the local people, some of whom have lived around the dolmens for thousands of years, will disavow any responsibility for building the dolmen.  There are usually stories of giants, trolls or magical beings building them.  In some cases they are mystical portals to another place.  Yet in their collective memory, these things have always been there.

It doesn't explain how these things have remained standing through earthquakes, fires and flood for all these thousands of years, precarious as they sometimes seem.  It also doesn't explain why, as we have discussed before, these ancient people used gigantic rocks to produce something that could have more easily been done with smaller stones.

Unless it was easy - for them.


This blog has been written with the sole purpose of using the ample evidence available to verify and support the biblical record, while refuting the copious propaganda that is shoved down our throats daily by materialistic uniformitarians.

It is my contention that the Bible describes God's original creation of people with extraordinary capabilities who subsequently built an advanced civilization that exceeds our own. That civilization was destroyed in the Great Flood and we have spent the last 5,000 years trying to re-build that civilization. I contend that science supports all this in multiple disciplines, but this information is ignored or suppressed by various people who have an opposing agenda.

Nothing that you see on this blog is original. Any fact that you see here is obtainable on a dozen different websites and books. I use these facts and photos, without violating their copyrights, under the legal principle of fair use practice. That is, I use them one time, for educational purposes only.

The point is, nothing here is made up. The only thing that I do (or need to do) is assemble this information in a discernible pattern.

You might want to read through the first entry posted on this blog (Past Remembering: Thoughts toward a coherent view of our ancient past, our present and our future) in order to understand my theoretical and theological underpinnings more clearly.

The truth is there. You just have to see it.

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 (New American Standard Bible)

That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
So there is nothing new under the sun.

Is there anything of which one might say,

“See this, it is new”?

Already it has existed for ages

Which were before us.
