  • I think aliens brought them here or helped them construct them. I think that they were man made in the shape of the aliens-who they were believed to be Gods. I think that they were made so big so that they could be seen from the sky and to give praise to what they believed to be their gods.

    Have you seen that old city in south america-they say that the stones were carved with lasers bc nothing on earth could have cut them soo perfect. It is the oldest remains on earth. Cool stuff.

  • Some body had to have made them and put them there..Weather it was an ancient culture of people or aliens..It's like the pyramids.

  • Archaeologists know exactly how they got there, they can see where they were carved in a nearby quarry, some can be found halfway to the set up site, & they have a good educated guess on how they were moved. The only thing that is a mystery is why the inhabitants stopped making them.

  • They built them out of the lava rock on the slops leftover from when the island was made. They carved them out of the rock and rolled them down on trees they cut down. Then they took ropes and pulled them up into place. They were made to resemble the leader at the time. History Channel 101.

  • Honestly, havent thought about them in years and dont know too much about them.

    My first thought is an ancient intelligent race made them.

  • Another place of great energy. And in my opinion a place of great meaning to those that lived there. As I said in another post, the ancients didn't do things like that w/o reasons. If they were to pay homage to the gods, their ancestors or other intelegent life (aliens) we won't ever actually know. But they are one of the worlds wonders for a reason.
