In addition, there is this.

Geopolymer in South-American monuments:
two scientific papers published 28 Oct 2018
[www.geopolymer.org]

And these papers:

Davidovits, J., Huaman, L. and Davidovits, R., 2019a.
Ancient geopolymer in south-American monument.
SEM and petrographic evidence. Materials Letters,
235, pp.120-124.
[www.sciencedirect.com]
[plu.mx]

Davidovits, J., Huaman, L. and Davidovits, R., 2019b.
Ancient organo-mineral geopolymer in South-
American Monuments: Organic matter in andesite
stone. SEM and petrographic evidence. Ceramics
International, 45, pp.7385-7389.
[www.sciencedirect.com]
[plu.mx]

I wonder when Davidovits will publish papers arguing the
Bimini road and the Yonaguni Monument are manmade
structures made of "geopolymers."

On the other hand, there is:

Janusek, J.W., Williams, P.R., Golitko, M. and Aguirre, C.L.,
2013. Building Taypikala: Telluric transformations in the
lithic production of Tiwanaku. In Mining and Quarrying
in the Ancient Andes (pp. 65-97). Springer, New York, NY.
PDF - [www.researchgate.net]
and [www.researchgate.net]

Another example of Elsevier-published pseudoscience is:

Cholleti, E.R., Vaddadi, K. and Yadav, A.H.K., 2017.
Puratana Aakasha-Yantrika Nirmana Sadhanavasthu
(Ancient Aeromechanical manufacturing materials).
Materials Today: Proceedings, 4(8), pp.7704-7713

As I have written in a talk section of Wikipedia, one red flag
for me is that the above paper is a conference paper. It has
been experience that conference papers and abstracts often are
not peer-reviewed and typically accepted and printed as
submitted. As a result, Young Earth creationists and fringe
catastrophists can easily get their fringe ideas published
thinly disguised as conventional sounding posters and talks
at Geological Society of America (GSA), American Geophysical
Union (AGU) Meetings, and other meetings. They do this in
order to build up their appearance as serious scientists and
create a list of legitimately sounding citations as support for
their ideas in their tracts and apologetics. Typically, there are
often too many abstracts at AGU, GSA, and many other
meetings for each one to be vetted. Typically, my experience
has been is it is Caveat emptor when dealing with conference
papers and abstracts.

I do not have any experience with the journals that
published the above Davidovits papers.

Yours,

Paul H.
