Besides the pyramid of Giza, which of the wonders are indeed real?

Hanging Gardens of Babylon
Statue of Zeus at Olympia
Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
Colossus of Rhodes
Lighthouse of Alexandria

There's some other lists of different wonders in the link:

Last I heard the only one that might not have been real was the hanging gardens. The temple of Artemis was for sure real: it was burned down by herostratus because he wanted attention.
>>
real? they were all real. theres a saying that goes if the pyramids weren't still around nobody would believe that such structures could have been built.
>>
>>57418
One of my history teachers didn't believe in the Statue of Zeus or the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
>>
>>57444

Well, the lighthouse was for sure real. The statue was probably real too, I mean it was in Greece, so if it were just made up some Greek guy would've checked and spilled the beans.

Christ the Redeemer does not deserve to be a New Wonder.
>>
>>57444
The same man who made the Athena Parthenos statue also made Zeus at Olympia.

It is well documented.
>>
>>57444

The found the ruins of the lighthouse in the sea near alexandria. Got destroyed by an earthquake probably.
>>
Babylon was real. But not as impressive as you think.

There are these kinds of statements that make /his/ great.

Fucking all of them.

>>57362
well, Helios probably didn't actually stand over the harbor entrance

This, it probably stood off to the side or something.

As it is they would have had to close off the harbor, fill in the entrance completley, then build the thing on a stable platform, then reinforce it, then dredge out the entrance again to reopen the harbor.

Also, as it is in the OP picture, it totally looks like some macro fetish porn that you would see on /d/ where it's about to squat down and take that mast right up the ass.

Just saying...
