We're expected to believe that primitive man constructed Newgrange. They say it was built around 3,200 BCE. On a time scale that's long before the pyramids in Egypt were built, even before the Egyptian Empire came into existence, before Babylonian and Cretan civilizations. Stonehenge was an empty field in the middle of nowhere. They expect us to believe that the builders of this giant burial site possessed extensive knowledge of architecture and had comprehensive knowledge of astronomy. How can that be?
The whole structure of Newgrange is a mysterious feat of engineering. Obviously, it was built by people who had a secret knowledge. Topping the dome was a miracle in itself. Built from single stones, the heavier ones were used for the bottom rim, to a total height of 19 feet, the heavy ones being unimaginably heavy.
This monument is astronomically astonishing. During winter solstice, on the shortest day of the year it puts on a light show shortly after daybreak in the burial chamber for reasons unknown, proving that these ancient people had knowledge calculating the length of days and the movements of the sun and moon.
Just by looking at this magnificent structure you could conclude it was constructed by people with a deep accumulation of knowledge, something that they would have had to use, an example would be the advanced techniques and methods needed just to move the river rocks in place. It's been noted that there hasn't been a leak in the roof for over 5000 years, considering the average house roof today has a life expectancy of 30 years.
Newgrange, a technical miracle, where did the knowledge come from to build it? It's still a mystery. One, which we may never resolve.
