    We have all seen the pictures of the pyramids in Central America, and South America; but an interesting fact is coming to light concerning pyramids right here in North America, as well.
    This video shows one in Illinois; but there are others in different parts of the country. Some are much smaller than this one pictured in Illinois, and in most places they are simply called "mounds", and no one knows who made them, or when.
    Apparently, even the Native American Indians do not know who built these pyramids either, and when asked about them, will say that they are not part of their culture.
    There seems to be about three ideas of the origin of these pyramids, both here and in the southern part of the Americas.
    The most accepted theory is that people who had seen the pyramids in Egypt some how came across and settled in the Americas, and built the pyramids. The second theory, is the reverse, which would be that ancient people from here went to Egypt and built pyramids there.
    The third theory is that there was at one time a civilization so advanced and so widespread that they traveled all over the world and built the pyramids. That one makes the most sense to me.

    When I lived in western Washington, there were mounds out there, but they were pretty small ones, and most people thought they were some sort of Indian burial mounds, although I don't think that there was any definitely knowledge of when and how they were built.
    They are called the "Mima Mounds".
    Whatever the pyramids are for, they seem to have been built in many different areas all over the world, and some of the latest ones to be found were in Afghanistan, if I remember right, and there are also some huge ones in Russia.
    This video is the first one in a series, and if you subscribe to this person's channel, you can watch more of the videos in this series.

    Where did these smart people go?

    I can believe aliens because that's the most logical to me.

    There is one in St Louis near the Mississippi I think but I've never visited it although it's only about a half hour from my son's home.

    If your video mentions that one Yvonne, I'm sorry. I just don't have the patience to watch a video that's more than 2-3 minutes long lately.

    Here is an interesting tidbit I found while reading about the one in St. Louis.


    It is hard to determine how many mounds were built in North America, for many have been destroyed by modern civilization – but there were many. One hundred and fifty years ago, for example, there were approximately 20,000 Indian mounds in Wisconsin alone, with a large portion of them alongside the Mississippi River. Now, after a century of plowing, town construction and urban sprawl [2] , there are less than 2,000 mounds remaining in the state.



    As anyone who was in the area in 1927 would tell you: the Mississippi floods. In that year over one thousand people drowned, almost a million people were forced from their homes, and over five million acres of farmland were ruined. Regular flooding replenishes the soil in this region and makes it rich. This is the same reason the ancient Egyptians lived alongside the Nile. In fact, the similarities between the Mississippi and the Nile (floods and pyramids) caused the original settlers of Illinois to name new towns after places in Egypt, such as Goshen, Cairo and Thebes.

    Interesting audio video. He is right that there is a mountain of evidences in this country that we are just beginning to realize is even here. One reason is that there had to be duration of time passing between the invasion of this country and now. Many countries histories through the centuries that have gone through the process of being overrun by another counrty has proven that as the new comes in, the old must be eradicated.

    At the time this happened to the Northeastern part of America, the invading country had developed a sence of what is socially exceptable, and annihilating a large population bothered many. So the story of eliminating a few violent savages made "colonizing" much more exceptable. But this has been happening since time began all over the world.

    But, I too think it's time to dig under the myths in our own country. We might learn much. My grandmother believed there were different ancesters long ago that are no longer with man today.

    There are a whole lot of interesting looking videos on Youtube, @Ina I. Wonder , if you go there and search for ancient America, or similar search terms. Most of them are at least an hour long, and I haven't wanted to post those here since they are so long; but there are some that look interesting and I intend to watch them myself.
    Here is an interesting map that was on one that I started looking at, and it shows all of the places in the United States, and down into Mexico, where the bones of giants have been found, indicating that at one time, there were some pretty large inhabitants here, who are not likely to have been related to the American Indians that must have come later,
