This question pertains to One Piece.

I know that Skypians, Birkans, and Shandorians came from the moon. But they should've been technologically advanced right? But Shandorians like Calgara seem to be a small tribe with zero knowledge of poneglyphs etc. Also, they seem to believe in rituals/superstition etc even though they were once an advanced civilization that lived on the moon. Also, they seem way too backward in terms of science and technology. How did that happen?

Also if that's true, then are Poneglyphs a way to find out the story about earth or moon?

    Well, we see a lot of post-apocalyptic movies that people lost touch with technology and are now very dumb and superstitious. so the seeing a small tribe with no knowledge might be logical. after all running out of resources on the moon is an apocalypse for people who live there.

  • But still they should've had the technology to come to earth and also two of three races ended up inhabiting sky, while the other race ended up inhabiting jaya. To do that, one would obviously need some kind of tech right? But Calgara's people were just good warriors, even they didn't know why they had the city of gold or who created that gold etc?

  • It is possible that only one race had the tech and lent it to others

  • @posixKing You don't seem to know how knowledge transfer works. I recommend reading Dr. Stone to get an idea why they could have lost technology

  • As for the Poneglyphs, they preserve the dark history. If the moon races play a role in that, then they will be mentioned. The Poneglyphs don't necessarily tell a chronological story. Aug 27 '18 at 6:26
