Dr. Troglodyte, thank you for you kind welcome. I'm sure that knowledge of the cavities of construction were lost to antiquity, having been sealed by Khufu and reopened in 1837 AD. I'm would imagine secrecy of such knowledge kept tomb raiders at bay since tombs were filled with highly-valuable treasure. I don't have any argument as to whether the chambers were disturbed since the time of Khufu, but you might want to consider that Egyptian Archeologists maintain that the Great Pyramid was built as a tomb for the Pharaoh and one of the possible explanations for the lack of any sarcophagus was that it was robbed of Khufu's body before archeologists discovered the king's chamber. If the "tomb" wasn't disturbed until 1837 AD as you claim, for what purpose do you believe the Great Pyramid was constructed, and why wasn't a sarcophagus found in the King or Queen's chambers? Where do you maintain Khufu's body got buried?

Thinking back to what I said about Khufu encasing the Great Pyramid with white limestone, I read something interesting that got me to thinking. Petrie found a different orientation in the core and in the casing measuring 193 centimetres ± 25 centimetres. He suggested a redetermination of north was made after the construction of the core, but a mistake was made, and the casing was built with a different orientation. The deviation was West of North. Since I believe that the casing stones were constructed under Khufu's reign, I asked myself "what would cause a deviation from north?" I figured that if I can determine what caused the drift of the cardinal directions of pyramid alignment then I could prove that the deviation between the core sides and the casing stones came from different periods of time.

Since the pyramids were built on a landmass on earth, shifting of the earth's axis due to precession wouldn't affect a measurement of North. However, Continental Drift over thousands of years could affect the arc-minute angle measurement of North. I decided that the best way to determine how much the Continental Drift of the African plate affected the arc-minutes from North was to find the average yearly drift from when Khufu finished pyramid construction. Then I compared that rate to the amount of deviation from North for the Core Sides (as recorded by Flinders Petrie's survey in 1881 AD).

Of course, the amount of deviation depends upon how accurate Khufu and the Core Pyramid's Builder were at constructing the Great Pyramid. However, it appears that they were both highly-skilled at building the pyramid with precision that astonishes the world as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. There have been tons of books marveling upon the accuracy of the Great Pyramid saying that it rivals anything we could build today with highly-sophisticated modern technology. In fact since I used Khufu's accuracy as the baseline for Drift Calculations, his skillful precision is called more into question because it most affects the calculation spanning thousands of years. I highly doubt that Egyptologists want to call into question Pharaoh Khufu's legacy.

The conclusion was highly favorable. Not only have I proven that a massive celestial object changed the earth's axis in 11,000 BC (through Precession of the earth) causing the Younger Dryas climactic event and that the Orion Correlation Theory is correct, I have also proven that the original core structure of the Great Pyramid predates 11,000 BC through Continental Drift calculations. In order to perform calculations, I had to convert arc-minutes and arc-seconds into its decimal equivalent. While I included the rate of Continental Drift for the African tectonic plate, I did not use that value in my calculations because I used the deviation of arc-minutes West from North over time (which should capture local geological landmass drift over time more accurately than the continent considered as a whole). My calculations are included below.

As a side note, I personally believe that this calls into question other Egyptian historical and archeological official narratives since knowledge proving other parts of Biblical History are seemingly being suppressed by academia (such as the Exodus). However, that is my own personal opinion and is another topic entirely (requireing further research). I currently make no formal claims or accusations in regards to my suspicions at this time and would appreciate it if we focus upon scientific and archeological evidence relevant to Tuck's Orion Precession Theory. I don't want to open Pandora's Box into a plethora of unrelated topics (such as religious debate).


------------------------------------------
Khufu finished Great Pyramid = 2,560 BC

African Tectonic Plate Continental Drift:
0.846 inches per year Northwest

Casing Sides Drift = 3' 43" ± 6" = 0.06194
Core Sides Drift = 5' 16" ± 10" = 0.08778
------------------------------------------

Khufu's North Correction from Core:
(0.08778 - 0.06194) = 0.02584 arc-minutes

Years Since Khufu Pyramid Completion:
(2,017 AD + 2,560 BC) = 4,577 years

Yearly West of North Drift since Khufu:
(0.02584 / 4,577) = 5.65e-6 arc-mins/year

Years of West of North Drift from Core:
(0.08778 / 5.65e-6) = 13,381 years

Year to BC Equivalence:
13,381 years = 11,364 BC
