We all know how the OCT relates Khufu pyramid air shafts to star culmination altitude. But we also know how much off these alignments are when we consider the correct epoch the pyramid was constructed.

What if this theory is wrong?

My proposition is that the North shafts both(King Chamber and Queen Chamber) relate to the pole star. The pole star during IV dynasty Egypt is Thuban.

On the other hand both South shafts were meant to relate to the altitude of the Sun.

Since the shafts do not match the specific epoch the pyramid was observed as observed from Giza we should ask ourselves:

What if the observation point - latitude was different. What if the epoch - year was different(in the past or future - in regards to construction). This means , where the shafts meant to symbolize a different era, or a different, maybe holy landmark - place on the globe? Let's investigate.

In the past many have looked into the idea that the Great Pyramid was a prophetic monument that documented the coming of Jesus Christ.

Looking into this possibility we will investigate three holy landmarks.

1. Orthodox Church of the Annunciation - Nazareth (latitude: 32.707°)
2. Church of the Holy Sepulchre - Jerusalem (latitude: 31.778°)
3. Church of the Nativity - Bethlehem (latitude: 31.704°)

We will first take the Nazareth point and set the date of the year so that the Sun at culmination aligns with the slope of the South King Chamber air shaft (45 degrees). This alignment happens twice a year, one when the sun's altitude is increasing, and one when it is decreasing.

I use Cartes du Ciel astronomy software.

Thuban was closest to the Northern Celestial pole at about 2800 BC. Stationed at Nazareth the year 2800 BC, we notice that the altitude of Thuban during upper culmination is +32°50'. But during lower culmination, the altitude is +32°38'. This is the phenomenal altitude, the geometric altitude is about:

h = +32° 36' 30"

North King Chamber Angle of Slope, Gantenbrink = +32° 36'

Bingo! So this shaft aligns with the lower culmination of the pole star, the epoch that it was the closest to the celestial North pole as observed from Nazareth. If we calibrate the date to November 14 we measure the geometric altitude of the Sun at upper culmination(Noon) to be +45° 08'. Gantenbrink measured the South King Chamber air shaft slope at +45°.

So what is the use of the Queen Chamber shafts?

This is where Bethlehem and Jerusalem come in.

We station our selves at Bethlehem. We then change the year, so that the altitude of Thuban during upper culmination is exactly equal to the North King Chamber slope.

The year is 2645 BC. See below:



Setting the date to November 16 we notice that the altitude of the Sun during upper culmination - passing the Meridian in the South is exactly 45 degrees as depicted in the South King Chamber slope.

On the other hand the maximum altitude of Thuban aligns perfectly with the North King Chamber air shaft slope.

Since Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem this links his birth to the year 2645 BC. Was any Pharaoh born this year in Egypt? If this was the case it could only be one person: Sneferu

The important thing shown in the previous pic is that, at the exact instance where Thuban was at the upper culmination point: azimuth = 0, if we observe the altitude of the Sun we see that it aligns with the altitude of the Queen Chamber North shaft.

Sun altitude = +39° 5' 45"
North Queen Chamber air shaft slope (Gantenbrink) = 39° 7' 28"
divergence(error) = 0° 1' 43"

A really small difference.

So the Queen Chamber proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are referring to Bethlehem. The reason is that the year 2645 BC is arbitrary. It does not represent a limit like the 2800 BC year. We therefore needed some cross-check mechanism.

We can see this using Jerusalem. We can station our selves at Jerusalem. Then chose the epoch - year, so that the slope of Thuban during upper culmination is exactly +32° 36'.

This year is 2658 BC. The day of the year that the Sun rises closest to the 45 degrees S KC slope is November 17. It's altitude is +44° 51'. We now chose the time of day when Thuban, during the day is at upper culmination. (Thuban phenomenal altitude = +32°36'02.7"). At this instance the geometric altitude of the Sun is:

a = +39° 6' 52.1"
North Queen Chamber air shaft slope (Gantenbrink) = 39° 7' 28"
divergence(error) = 0° 0' 36"

The error is even smaller.

This alignment does not work for any latitude.

If we chose Giza as an observation point then the year Thuban aligns is 2339 BC. We chose the day of the year that the Sun rises to 45 degrees (to be exact +44° 50'), and we change the time of day so that Thuban is at upper culmination(+32°35'47.0"). We notice the altitude of the Sun is (+34°58'24.2"). Nowhere near the Queen shaft angles.

This means that at least the King Chamber shafts and the North Queen Chamber shaft of the Khufu pyramid were designed based on astronomic stellar and pole star data that relate to the early pyramid building epoch and latitudes that relate to Biblical holy sites like Nazareth, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem. It seems to me that the year 2658 BC could relate to the year that Djoser passed away.

The only, coincidental Bauval star Giza correlation is the Khafre pyramid construction - Alnilam altitude - South King Chamber Khufu pyramid air shaft alignment. Orion is part of the picture.
