    Our lidar system has revealed built terraces, straight causeways, enclosures with checkpoints and water reservoirs. There are monumental structures just a mile apart, connected by 600 miles of canals, long raised causeways connecting the sites and reservoirs and lakes.”

    So much for the cavemen

      even though the savannah plain, which flooded several months a year during rainy season, does not encourage permanent settlement, there are still many visible traces of the time before Spanish colonization at the beginning of the 16th century. Next to the "mounds," these traces include mainly causeways and canals that often lead for kilometers in a dead straight line across the savannahs.

    Didn't they figure out these dudes were decently advanced at one point when they found a load of their fertilizing pots scattered around and figured out they actively extended the rainforest?

      they didn't "extend the rainforest", it was just overgrown
      rainforest soils are poor, but they found these patches of super fertile soil scattered in the amazon with a lot of artefacts like potshards in there
      so it was obvious that there were people there who figured out fertilizers and artificially created this soil
      and now they found out their cities

        well the rainforest is good, wouldn't call it overgrown.
        I remember some 10 years ago hearing the pot thing so it's fuzzy. I know they tried basing some compost toilets off the pot design.
        Think I remember back in the day hearing they were pretty sure the amazonian tribes were pretty advanced at one point and just kinda fell into primitivism. Don't know how academia has changed on that. I do remember watching a documentary that was about contacting an uncontacted tribe and the tibals said they actively didn't want to be contatced because the rubber plantations were killing and enslaving people, which makes me think quite a few tribes are probably a similar situation of someone hated them so some segment, skilled or unskilled, managed to get to the jungle and ended up being a survivalist shelter situation.

      Yes, "lost amazonian civilization(s)" has been a minority, but not fringe position for a while despite OP's hysterics.
      In fact the main point of debate has been how big and advanced you have to be, to be considered a civilization. Consequently there was a fierce debate over how populated these sites were.

      this doesn't prove the pyramids were built with telekinesis, I don't understand why you'd rather listen to this doey eyed hack than figure out what these settlements actually were
