What was first thought to be simply a strange looking mountain has revealed an a monumental archaeological discovery. Under the ruble of dirt and soil lies the biggest pyramid in the world with a complex of other ancient buildings. Research suggests that these structures were built before any known civilization. The hypothesis is that an ancient civilization with advance knowledge of astronomy and architecture built many of the ancient sites including pyramids around the world, particularly the ones constructed with huge blocks of granite and sandstone some weighing up to 1200 tons (Baalbek, Lebanon) The hypothesis is testable for Bosnia as scientists can calculate how long would it take for sediment to have accumulated over the years on top of the structures. This sediment can also be subject to radiocarbon dating which would reveal when the accumulation process started.
Semir Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D. in Sociology of History: The Mayan Civilization, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia, suggests that “…original pyramids, most superior and oldest, were made by advanced builders who knew energy, astronomy and construction better than we do.” Osmanagich also suggests that more recent ancient structures and pyramids are built with smaller bricks and mud.
The evidence that is presented to date the site comes primarily from the sediment covering the structures. According to Radiocarbon dating from the State Institute for Agro-pedology the soil covering the pyramids is approx. 12,000 years old. While Radiocarbon dating from the paved terrace on Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, performed by Institute of Physics of Silesian Institute of Technology from Gliwice (Poland) confirmed that terrace was built 10.350 years ago (+/- 50 years).
Since there is no trance of any recent civilization inhabiting this area, its native population most likely inhabited the area around the same time these structures were built. No other worldly explanation is given and no aliens are involved. There are no assumptions made here about the pyramid complex itself. The facts remain that the site includes the largest pyramid structure in the world—The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun with its height of over 220 meters is much higher than the Great Pyramid of Egypt (147 meters) and that its estimated construction date as revealed by radiocarbon testing is around 10,000 to 12,000 years ago clearly belonging to a civilization and time period we have no records of.
Osmanagich claims about an older civilization might sound pseudo-scientific to those who believe that everything about our history has been explained and that any new discoveries must fit with century old paradigms that in recent times seem to be thwarting scientific progress instead of embracing new approaches.
