    LIDAR's great, but it's not new technology ;-) In fact, it's been around since the 70s !

    The Quechua language of the Mayans, Aztecs and Inca has Semitic traces, which along with their Lebanese noses and Pyramids proves they were Phoenicians. They also share the mafia vendetta style of conflict management prominent in the Mediterranean which the Phoenicians colonized. Even the Punics from Carthage that first settled Spain were Phoenicians.
