You've got me there, Chris.I thought there was physical, archaeological evidence and / or first hand contemporary accounts for all of those four.I suppose I'll go with the Colossus, simply because if it did exist, it's long been melted down. At least stonework and so on exists for the other three - although the Lighthouse is under dispute to some degree. You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that need altering.

I believe it is the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. I watched a History Channel show on the wonders of the world once, but I may remember incorrectly.

According to the trivia site, which I happen to be struggling to relocate, there is no evidence at all for the existence of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.Chris "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
