    Wiki says
    "both tectonic forces acting on deeply buried, massive, bedrock, e.g. granite, and pressure release as this bedrock is uncovered by erosion can create sets of joints, which are known as orthogonal joint sets, that intersect at nearly 90°. Orthogonal joint sets quite often result in the formation of rock formations that are comparable in size and shape to the blocks shown in pictures of the alleged megaliths"

    Others say they are man-made (possbly by giants), as there are smaller structures in Lebanon, off Japan & other places.

    What do you think?

    It's difficult to see much in that picture, but a simple test would be the structure of these blocks.

    If they form no coherent structure, they are unlikely to be mad-made. If they do form a coherent structure, it would be worth investigating.

    From the looks of the pictures, the dont.
