The pyramids because they are the only one proven to have actually existed there is little to no evidence that the rest of the ancient wonders were even around. Also the pyramids are insanely large and to be built that long ago that size of rocks without equipment is insane. Plus its still standing Very Happy

Lol, base the discussion on all of the wonders existing. Otherwise its 0 point, we might aswell remove all from the discussion?

A point you could make instead is that the pyramids stood the test of time, unlike the others.

But IF the Hanging Gardens existed I think they are even more impressiven considering they required an extremly complicated system to supply the plants with water etc.

why would they need an ''extreme complicated system''? pretty sure they can tell slaves to carry water in buckets.

32 000 liters every day? Up 30 meters.

An archimedes screw might have been possible : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archimedes_screw

But ye these Hanging Gardens sounds more unlikeley the more I read about it. But if they existed its extremly amazing.

Wonder - A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable.

I do not find a 3 dimensional triangle made out of rocks to be beautiful, unexpected or unfamiliar. I also don't admire them to a large degree and their purpose has been explained. The hanging gardens on the other hand are legendary.. if they existed they are a far better wonder imo.

If I could see one of the wonders in person, I would choose the hanging gardens without a doubt and I wouldn't even want to go see the pyramids in person.

It's called a pyramid, silly.

All the wonders are kind of boring. :/ I suppose the Hanging Gardens were de best, though.

How can you possible think a bunch of plants in the air (Hanging gardens of babylon) is more impressive then a pyramid made of 2.3 MILLION ROCKS each weighing around 15 TONS. REMEMBER there was NO MACHINES these stones were DRAGGED by millions of people 15 TONS could you imagine? What about your silly plants that are hanging big deal anyways the hanging gardens are the least likely to have existed out of the 7 ancient wonders.
