No shortage of Stonehenge replicas

Image

The website clonehenge.com lists 96 large, permanent replicas of Stonehenge around the world, including five in Washington State in the United States.

The owners of Esperance Stonehenge describe their creation as the only astronomically aligned, full-scale, "exact" replica of a pristine Stonehenge in natural stone granite.

Construction of the replica took about 10 months.

According to the charity English Heritage, construction of the original Stonehenge in the United Kingdom is believed to have begun more than 5,000 years ago.

The Wiltshire monument has been a World Heritage Site since 1986 and archaeologists still debate theories surrounding its use and meaning.

Today, nearly one million people visit Stonehenge every year.

I was gonna say, Stonehenges, surely.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Is there any blood on the Altar Stone? :think:
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.
