    About soybean in the Amazon land. The Amazon land is really unfertille because its too acidic, however the agriculture tech in Brazil is really high.
    Companies just turn the land in a highly fertile land, and use genetically modified crops to create huge plantations in this kind of soil. Thats why Brazil have such a high production even with this type of soil.
    Before, Brazil didn't had enough fertille soil to produce enough food for the internal market. After so many discoveries in agricultural tecnology, now we are the 1st/2nd biggest producer in the world. So, its possible.

    Never listen to white people about anything ancient. They were not there and they were uncivilized at those times. Nothing against you Caucasians but you should be quite with your guessing games!! You need to sit back and allow those who are from there to teach!!! Stop speaking yourselves in history.

    im from one of the brazillians amazon states (rondonia) i remember that one of my teachers discovered a stone circle like 50 km of the capital when he was hiking, he is a history teacher and was really involved with the natives and historical places of our state.

      No. It's just that you can't farm on the Amazon. If you can't farm, it's not likely there were large urban centers there.

    4:00 Its not difficult to grasp.. You can compost dead soil and create fertile black dirt. All you would need is Shit, Sugars like fruit, charcoal, and literally anything, dead weeds or dead animals to create good soil. No need for soil science experts for such a simple task.

    The phrase "squaring the circle" doesn't mean putting a square in a circle, that's easy to do, it's a mathematical puzzle to find a square that has exactly the same area as a circle.
    Since PI is irrational it's impossible in any rational sense other than expressing the side of the square as a function of PI, which as it's irrational cannot be done exactly

    He's not talking to the right soil scientists - pop along to an Elaine Ingham talk and you will discover the very interesting fact that there is no soil on earth that lacks the nutrients to grow the hungriest of the biggest jungle massives. Its soil bacteria and micro-fungi that feed directly on the aggregates of the soil, not to mention the humus, that solubalise the nutrients present in those aggregates. Destroy the fungi by forest clearance and you break the nutrient cycling chain at its beginnings, the bacteria will better survive but both will further get taken out by the use of artificials used by toxic agriculture that will also oxidise the humus. The bacteria won't on there own support woody tree growth only the more sappy weedy species of plants. Explain this: before the supposed creation of terra prata how is it that these thin soils grew those millions upon millions of acres of rainforest? Nature does it all by Herself. The interesting possibility is that these 'primitives' knew of Elaine's work and so knew how to manage the ecology and so control the successional cycles maintaining old growth forest conditions. If you could hear my English accent would you be any more convinced of what is here said...?

    What about the global shift scientists say occurred? Supposedly Antarctica wasn’t frozen and the Amazon wasn’t in its current location. They say that’s why so many cities are being uncovered not only by deforestation but also by using X-ray technology (Lidar) to see thru the dense jungle as they fly over it. But they use one plane not helicopters

    Get out of amazon. No one will be there. The indigenous deserve to be there.
    To say that the Amazon soil its is not the most fertile soil in the planet it is the most stupid idea I ever had contact with. If look just some kilometers under Amazon its the most productive agricultural land of the planet. Enormous kilometers of land basically emerged in superficial water. Amazon soil have the biggest aquifer in the world. How many years do you think the water was there. Weke up guys.

    Graham Hancock is really well spoken and interesting to listen to. His work however lacks a lot of evidence and he's not well respected in the scientific community or journals. He tends to extrapolate far too much without proof. Super interesting to listen to though.

      And why does it seem so farfetched? If there was an ancient civilization that lived there for thousands of years its entirely feasible. Not every culture is as obsessed with cutting down trees and destroying nature. We already know if you add trees or vegitation the ecosystem pops up in the area almost overnight.

    How seriously can you take a guy who uses Mayan as an adjective and/or a possessive. Mayan refers only to the language, nothing else. This man has not read a single academic book on the topic or he would know that.

    • daiel daielsson
      daiel daielsson 9 days ago +1

      👍The word Mayan is not correctly used as an adjective. It is never correct to use Mayan to name cultural objects associated with Maya people, culture, or civiliations. Thus uses of Mayan in front of words such as calendar, hieroglyphs, civilization, society, peoples, is always incorrect. The word Maya is a noun but it also an adjective, that is used to name things that belong to the Maya, to Maya culture, to Maya people, to Maya civilization.
