         sometime in recent geological time, the altiplano of the andes, called locally the puno in peru-bolivia, was jungle near sealevel.  the depictions of toxodons 22 times at tiwanaku suggests that it was late pleistocene times.  we have good reasons to think that there could have been major earth-changes in the andes, circa 10,000 bce when atlantis sank during a poleshift, and near 3100 bce, when the last poleshift occurred. 
         the andes, especially the chilean portion, are very active seismicly, with great quakes, and known elevator plate motion.  darwin spoke of raised shorelines in some parts, where in others, like near lima, the old port dropped below sealevel, in the last 500 years. 
         the event i speak of dropped the entire altiplano basin, and regions to the southwest, below the sea.  i had thought only briefly, but after pondering, i note that the high mountains peaks that tower above lago titicaca, had the earliest terraces created near the tops.  this is not typical, but an odd anomaly.  as if survivors of a flood had ample time to create terraces on the tops of peaks, that were islands then, to cultivate for growing food.  otherwise, the lower slopes would have been terraced first.  thus, the event was during the era of cultured man.  organized agriculture was done before the range uplifted!  some nazca styled lines were laid before the land dropped below sealevel.  these are logical deductions.  although they could predate the event by a long period. 
         for a while after the uplift, the entire basin of the altiplano was filled with seawater.  tiwanaku and puma punku were entirely under water.  the old bench or shoreline can still be discerned.  its on a different horizontal plane, and not on the same parallel or level with the current surface of titicaca - there has been a subsequent event that tilted the plate, causing the seawater to run off in a flood, as if it was sudden.  this is seen at the gulley that la paz was built in.  the terraces point to a longer period of submersion, before the uplift.  the survivor population needed more crops during the time of submersion. 
         if our experts would be slower to accept lame theories, they could make some carbon dating of marine deposits, in the region of maximum expansion of titicaca.  this could give us a date before the uplift, or after the uplift, but before the tilt.  two series of dates could be among the samples.  i bet numerous samples will date between 10,000 bce to 3100 bce.  our scientists often ignore the true dates, and accept those that fit their theories better.  they always find what they expect to find. 
         tiwanaku was probably built before the submersion.  it spent some time under sealevel for certain.  some of the carved stones of the monuments, now have a layer of limestone over the cut surface of the original stone.  it would likely take centuries under the sea for that to happen.  titicaca has sea horses in it.  the region had an advanced culture before the initial submersion. 
         as can be seen, there is ample evidence to support the scenario that i propose, but our lads ignored or failed to discern it all.
