5.12 – THE MONOLITHS (4.19.13)


Palmar Sur, Costa Rica. While clearing the jungles in the 1930s, crews discover hundreds of monolithic stone spheres.

“Many of them are huge. I mean, they are 10 feet in diameter. They are gigantically huge. Others are much smaller, the size of a basketball or a car tire or something like that.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

To date, over 300 stone spheres have been found at archeological sites across the region. And “Las Bolas” as they are called, are some of the most precise stone carvings in the ancient world. Some experts believe these mysterious stone balls could be 96% completely spherical.

“A perfectly spherical round ball is hard to make. And, in fact, where they are found is a primitive area, so the stone balls that we see at Costa Rica would have been very, very hard to make by just bashing them out with a rock.”

  – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“We can only imagine how they may have been able to make such perfect spheres. These spheres are carved out granites and granite diorites. These are very hard igneous rocks, difficult to work.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

“Granodiorite is one of the hardest natural materials. It never comes free in nature in the shape of a sphere. So, obviously, somebody shaped that. Today we would need to use diamond tools and laser to shape the spheres.”

– Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology, American Univ., Bolivia)

“It almost seems like there was some kind of megalithic carving school. Who could create the most perfect sphere? Some are still hidden within the jungles so what were they doing, why were they constructed?”

Hugh Newman (Author, Earth Grids)

“Jungle dwelling local chiefs were sometimes buried with some of the smaller balls. But some of the balls are gigantically huge, I mean, in fact they are so large, they couldn’t fit in any grave. So, the great mystery with the stone balls really is what their purpose was.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“According to the legends of Costa Rica, those stone spheres were used as cannon balls by the god of thunder, to drive away the god of wind and hurricanes. Now, these are wonderful ideas of a story but as we all know, every story has a core of truth, and the question is: what is that core?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Are the legends of gods battling storms really a description of Ancient Astronaut machinery at work, as some researchers suggest? And if so, might the discovery of stone spheres revealed the ultimate purpose for monoliths.

Bosnia-Herzegovina, 2004. A team of archaeologists discover stone spheres in forests and creek beds near the town of Banja Luka.

“If you go into that area, there’s a ravine in a mountain site, that’s been cut by a stream and in it are all of these stone balls. Very similar to the ones in Costa Rica. They’re half buried in this mountain site, and some are exposed. It is a tourist area. And in fact, Bosnia has four or five areas where these stone balls can be seen.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The biggest source of Bosnia stone spheres is in the central Bosnian town of Zavidovici. We took samples from four different stone spheres and samples of natural stone that we found nearby, and then we did chemical analysis and the conclusion was those stone spheres were made. From the liquid state, they would melt them. They were adding certain additives to get better properties of the material, and then when they got dry, in certain molds, they were getting a perfect shape of the sphere.”

– Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology, American Univ., Bolivia)

Like most other monoliths, researchers believe the spheres were likely used for ceremonial rituals, but is it possible that these monoliths like the stone spheres in Costa Rica, helped create a connection to celestial beings, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend.

“Another theory of the stone balls is that they were somehow used as star maps. And that they were rolled around and they would show where stars were and their relationship to other areas, very much like some extraterrestrial map.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“It’s also said that those stone balls were there to concentrate thought, that they were somehow physical devices, that somehow by touching or working with these stones they were able to establish a bridge to another dimension. And so, we might actually be looking at a civilization who realized that the places were these stone spheres were located were somehow power spots. That somehow there was some form of energy, whereby if we were able to concentrate, we would indeed be transported to a world where we could communicate with the gods. And that might be why these stone spheres are located in the places they are.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Could it really be that these round monoliths were placed throughout the world to create a greater cosmic energy grid, as some researchers believe. If so, might stone spheres and other monoliths be celestial travel tools placed in power spots, portals for star travelers visiting Earth. And is it possible these advanced beings have left behind more evidence. Perhaps not on Earth, but approximately 140 million miles away?
