there was iron ore there.

there was carbon there

there were many potential power sources there

I have no reason to think they steeled iron.

I have no grounds for stating they did not

Nowhere in this thread did propose anything other than the above.

Let me reiterate

I believe they worked Granite with impact, fire and water, abrasion and copper tools.

I believe it is possible to conduct a study to falsify this assumption

I believe such a study to be beyond my means.

I believe that those who hold the pyramid was built some other time, by some other people, for some other reason, should begin attempting to come up with plausible candidates for all 3...while at the same time continuing in their attempts to debunk the consensus conclusions.

I am far more interested in the why, and concentrate my studies there. Tho I have to admit that the constant questions here have dictated the focus of my study of late.

I just wish some of you would put forward your opinions of what was instead of what wasn't, alittle more, or at the very least, some, of the time
