Why built the Great wall of China?

Why built the Great wall of China?

Semeiko was Vladimir, chief of staff of the FSA, honorary doctorate Brussels University, 07.11.2006

Says the President of the Academy of fundamental Sciences Andrey tyunyaev:

As you know, North of the territory of modern China, there was another, much more ancient civilization. This is repeatedly confirmed by archeological discoveries made in particular, in Eastern Siberia. Impressive evidence of this civilization, comparable to the Arkaim in the Urals, not only is still not well studied and understood world history, but never received a proper evaluation in Russia itself. As for the so-called “Chinese” walls, then talk about it as about the achievements of ancient Chinese civilization is not quite legitimate. Here to confirm our scientific correctness it is enough to cite only one fact. LOOPHOLES in large parts of the wall are NOT DIRECTED TO the NORTH AND SOUTH! And this is clearly evident not only in the most ancient, the reconstructed sections of the wall, but even on recent photosgrafik and in the works of Chinese figure.

Earlier by the Chinese themselves was a discovery about the ancient Chinese writing another nation. There is already published work showing that these people were Slavs Aryans.

So, who built the great wall, which today is called the Chinese? Whom and who was she protecting?

And my collection of photos on this topic.

This, of course, talking about the tower of Babel. the presence of which is confirmed not only by religious legends, but also historical evidence. This tower was a multi-level complex, which ended with the temple of Marduk under his dome.

Very often construction projects of a political or technical importance towered without the ambitions or goals to achieve the level of cultural monuments. That’s what happened with the construction of the world famous Eiffel tower in Paris, which now collects near every day hundreds of tourists from all over the world. Initially it disgusted the French, who considered the erection of ugliness for the whole city. Well-known cultural figures of the time opposed its construction and sent lots of petitions, notes of protest to the city administration. However, the “iron lady” Continue reading
