The comments with that article are interesting.

Thanks for pointing them out. Since I don't want to register there to make a comment, I will comment here instead:

Rene Thom's study of stone circles in England found dimensions that always represented multiples of what he called "the megalithic yard". You would not detect the presence of a standard unit of measure unless you looked at lots of data points - and you certainly would not get it from looking at colored lines overlayed on a photograph.

The people who comment that the article is nonsense and wishful thinking are not in a position to evaluate the science, and might not understand it anyway. The people who worked on Peublo Bonita are probably better judges. However it is impossible to tell from the article itself, whether the data was "cherry picked".
