Cro-Magnons were the very first modern humans 35,000 years ago. Why don't they get any credibility? Because they existed before "Adam and Eve"?

The building examples are byproducts of the science of the time, and were remarkably advanced, and had advanced remarkably in totally opposite sides of the globe indepentant from each other.
Again, intelligence in humans hit its peak during the Cro-Magnon era. This era was worldwide of course. After trial and error, over millenniums, they all eventually built structures with similar amazement. But again, construction skills are not relative to the scientific method (nor does it have anything to do with "God" or religion). It's simply an advanced stage of human progress. This is to be expected of an intelligent species. The longer they remain intelligent -- the more advanced they get -- the better structures they can build. This is common sense.
Of course, the Americas took a little while longer to catch up in the temple building department. Who knows why. I'd guess that if the first humans came from the Eastern Continents (mainly Africa), then that's where there would be the most advancement. This is probably the reason why their religions or deity beliefs were more intricate than those in the Americas.

Astrology is not science.

There it is again. Third person to use it since the "big debate".
I don't believe what I believe because it's what I desire to believe. I believe what I believe because it's what logic and reason cause me to believe. All I want is to live with the truth -- nothing more, nothing less.
