Those readers who have watched the three-hour documentary debunking the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens series know that part of the documentary is devoted to debunking an extraterrestrial explanation for the statues at Rapa Nui – Easter Island. I came across this short piece on the statues that contributes to dispensing with the nonsense as well.
Kudos are once again in order for Jason Colavito’s seemingly boundless enthusiasm for exposing poor thinking (having a PhD doesn’t mean someone thinks well … boy could I tell stories).
Anyway, Jason recently wrote the two essays that follow. They are in regard to Dr. Robert Schoch’s “alternative” theories about two famous sites: Easter Island and Göbekli Tepe. Enjoy!
