    They were a 2 bit, highly agressive nation with an enormous chip in their shoulders. The most sophisticated tech they had was an alter for torturing defenceless animals.

    The God they created was a relfection of their lack of maorality.

    Even a magic 8 ball device would have been great for them. Better than dice or black and white rocks pulled from the priests pocket.

    The jewish calendar was moon based. It had to be rerigged and jigged to catch it up w the actual solar based movement of the earth. The babylon iand and mayan calenadars were much more accurate. The jews adopted some aspects of the pagan babylonian calendar.

    'The Babylonians used a sexagesimal (base 60) system that was so functional that today, 4000 years later, we still use it every day -- whenever we tell time or refer to degrees of a circle.'

    'The main fault of the Babylonian system was the absence of a zero. But the Ancient Maya's vigesimal (base 20) system had one, drawn as a shell. Other numerals were lines and dots, similar to what we use today when we tally.

    Because of their mathematics, the Babylonians and Maya had elaborate and fairly accurate measurements of time and the calendar. Today, with the most advanced technology ever, we still have to make temporal adjustments -- almost 25 times a century to the calendar and a few seconds every few years to the atomic clock.'

    Regarding the pyramids..

    It's one thing to thorise about it in a book and with chalk on a black board.. it's quite something else to go out there in the desert and do it. I favour the hands on practical approach over arm chair theorist any day of the week.
