(Touched off by 2fries Treethedral)
Select a suitably sized slab of solid sandstone. (Imagine immensity).
Location: large lake.
A decent distance downhill drop is desirable.
Supervise a series of steerable sluices.
Water washes where where we would want windows.
Water wanders where-ever we wish.
Erection of Erodothedral extends enormous eras or eons, or even an eternity.

Says one, "If this overhang came down, they'd never find any of us"
Says another, "Naw, it's been this way since the beginning. It'll be standing here a thousand years from now"
We went back the next year. Just a huge pile of broken rock.
||Can just imagine God saying "darn, got the aim right, just got to work on the timing".
||The perfect way to supplant organized religion with
naturalism. Organic buildings rule!
||Don't know how I missed this one.
