With respect to the port up in the Andes that I referred to on holiday! If you enter “Tiahuanaco” in a Google Search you will find plenty of information on this ancient city in the Andes, close to Lake Titicaca. It is fascinating, but only one of myriads of facts that are difficult to explain. I have books full of them, which is why I am probably as sceptical as I am of neat scientific theories, especially about the past. Dr Victor Pearce wrote a series called “Evidence for Truth”, and although I don’t like his rather smug tone, and disagree with some of his conclusions, the facts that he talks about are fascinating. Regarding Tiahuanaco, he states:

  1. It is now in icy latitudes of 12,000 feet, but it was built for a hot tropical climate.
  2. It was a harbour city with docks and quays built for ocean-going vessels.
  3. Lake Titicaca is filled with salt seawater.
  4. The fossil sea beach stretches for thousands of miles through the Andes.
  5. Tiahuanaco was built of huge monolithic blocks of stone which could have been transported from its quarries 30 miles away only by sea.
  6. The city is prehistoric and was suddenly overwhelmed by flood, and prehistoric workings were covered by glacier ice until quite recently.
He then creates a theory to fit the facts!
