"A picture of myself" is an odd way to describe a badly drawn wiener, subby.

Such a spectacular find. I really hope vandals don't find it.

"Other pictures show human figures, geometric shapes and hunting scenes, as well as animals such as deer, tapirs, alligators, bats, monkeys, turtles, serpents and porcupines."

Humans survived because we're basically Nibbler from Futurama.

The difference between "vandalism" and "art" is basically aesthetics, right?

Headline reminded me of this.

So a man walks into a bar, and sits down. He starts a conversation with an old guy next to him. The old guy has obviously had a few. He says to the man:
"You see that dock out there? Built it myself, hand crafted each piece, and it's the best dock in town! But do they call me "McGregor the dock builder"? No! And you see that bridge over there? I built that, took me two months, through rain, sleet and scoarching weather, but do they call me "McGregor the bridge builder"? No! And you see that pier over there, I built that, best pier in the county! But do they call me "McGregor the pier builder"? No!"
The old guy looks around, and makes sure that nobody is listening, and leans to the man, and he says:
"but you fark one sheep..."

The picture is accurate, the wiener is just malformed.

And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the deer, and tapirs, and alligators, and bats, and monkeys, and turtles, and serpents and and porcupines...

Art like this from 12,000 year ago is about as clear as it gets that there were no ancient advanced civilizations hanging out in south and central America 12,000 years ago with diamond drill bits and angle grinders making the first stage of Machu Picchu or Cusco or Ollantaytambo.  This is cave art from hunter gatherers.

Those things look like pictographs rather than regular cave art. I wonder if the squiggles represents numbers.
 
2020-12-04 2:56:45 PM  
....meaning the ancient civilizations must be even crazy older!   ha!  it is all so impossible, but then there are 100 tonne megaliths you can't slip a piece of paper between.  nuts.

Maybe I'm just jaded, but something about this seems just a little too cool.

Has someone been saying that there were advanced civilizations in South America 12,000 years ago?

They drew up the plans 12,000 years ago, but it took them 11,500 years to develop the diamond drill bits and angle grinders that they needed to build them.

Quite a few of the pictographs are reminiscent of ones in New Mexico... down the rabbit hole I go.

There's a whole demographic of people who need, desperately and with every fiber in their being, to believe in ancient advanced civilizations everywhere.

It has a weird connection to fascism, btw. One of the tropes that leads to fascism is a belief in a former higher stage of civilization, a golden past when people were more virtuous and had better lives. When you believe this, you believe society's job isn't to go forward and improve but to return to the old-fashioned morals of that time.

No.  You can project whatever you need.   The problem is megalithic architecture and the fact that you can't shape stone with known tools.   12,000 is a distinguished time period because of the climate disaster of the Younger Dryas (12,900 to 11,700 years ago) which is the biggest climate disaster that we can identify that is severe enough to wipe out cultures, but recent enough to have occurred while modern humans were known to have occupied the all the continents.
