    Sorry, my world is not metric, and I have no sense of the size of the Indian subcontinent. Amazon Basin is 7 million square kilometers ~= 2.7 million square miles. That is roughly the size of *mainland U.S. minus Washington, Oregon, California, and Nevada* . Rainforest is 5.5 million square kilometers ~= 2.1 million square miles. Rainforest is 78% as big as Amazon Basin.

      Hmm, but you can look up Terra Preta, the LIDAR images, and the work being done by the Finnish archaeologists. He doesn't seem like the type of person I'd take an expedition with, but I find his story compelling.
      So many sites on Terra preta...
      A group of scientists and engineers are trying to develop a low-water sewage treatment system that is inspired by Terra preta. I'm not sure if they have cracked the code, but it looks like their system is safe for recycling poop.

    So this guy says a small handful of explorers spread smallpox to MILLIONS of people and completely destroyed entire cities..... Yeah i'm calling complete bullshit. Also what evidence is there for this? The smallpox came 100 years later during the second phase. The population decline has been recorded as starting WAY before the Spanish arrived.

    It is a mystery because people refuse to read any literature from people who lived and the time.
    Some people need to relax easse off the drugs for five minutes and read some straight history without seposition.
    The explanations have been documented for hundreds of years.

    which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing

    Just one look at the Amazonian tribal people (contacted and un-contacted) today will show the world what a load of crap this story about any 'advanced civilization' existing in South America. This concoction is all about trying to create a false narrative in order to destroy a natural dense rain-forest to exploit its resources.

      Tracy Sorensen maybe for the “Jaredites”, if I remember right from my 25 years in that cult. I think that even if Joseph Smith did know about these civilizations and wasn’t just totally guessing, he likely knew about them because he talked to Native Americans who knew their ancestors used to have civilizations down there.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if this culture possibly pre-dated our known civilizations? Almost like an actual Atlantis? It is not like the Fertile Crescent had simply been a colonized by some other people? Like an ancient non-Semitic-speaking people would just settle in a new land...a region with similar geology of a river basin? Oh wait, the Sumerians "the black-headed people" show up out of no where as the founders of modern civilization? I would be interesting if the people of this regions hair color was black?

    That's not what squaring the circle means. Anyone can enclose a circle with a square, but finding a square and a circle that have exactly the same area can't be done without algebra. It's not unrealistic to think that possibly ancient South American cultures had discovered pi, but that picture or that Henge certainly doesn't prove that they did.

      The nutrient cycle in rain forests (not just the Amazon) is so fast that organic, decaying matter never really has a chance to be incorporated into the soil. This leads to very poor soil quality for farming while still being able to sustain the abundance of plant life you typically see in rain forests.

      Ha. And you’re accusing Hancock of speaking tripe. My lord, what a funny world.
      You are also agreeing that there is lots we don’t know about the Amazon, whilst Hancock discusses the same thing, yet you think he knows less than you!?!!

    "Squaring the circle" is _not_ just inscribing a circle within a square; such an act is trivial. It is constructing a circle with the same area of a given square (under certain constraints), and it was proven to be impossible long after the Greeks.
    I wouldn't trust this guy. Getting something so basic so wrong with such confidence is a major red flag.

    I wonder if they composted their dead. Human beings are about the only thing not used to make fertilizer today. Whether it's some type of ocean creature being mollusks or fish or squid or hooven animals like cows as well as chickens even down to and including every single part of these animals makes up fertilizer today. But we do not use humans. Just a thought.
