Blueprint of Stonehenge
Blueprint of Stonehenge showing sun
and star viewing positions.

The more we study the blueprint of Stonehenge, the less sense it makes. The positions of the stones are all correct, but being a circle, you could find a viewing spot for any star or sun position.

We have our own theory about Stonehenge that involves sound... maybe it was an amphitheater. The Stonehenge formation has some exceptional sound qualities and amplification features. Placing a little radio turned to the lowest volume on the flat rock inside the circle, it can be heard loud and clear a hundred yards away.

Another theory is that Stonehenge was used as a telephone to God. We might not have confidence in this theory, but nobody nows what the builders were thinking and there is the audio manipulation concept as mentioned above.
