No, you don't.

You imagine that the "tombs", which you then contradict as being a tomb, were filled with treasure. What evidence do you have to support the following statement?


I said tombs as a generalization for what purpose the Egyptologists believe all the pyramids were built. You are needlessly debating semantics. In many cases, valuable artifacts made of gold were found in the tombs of pharaohs. Obviously, you don't want everyone to have the floor plans to where the tomb is located. That is why I argued that knowledge of such a tomb would be lost to antiquity when Dr. Troglodyte said that the cavities of construction were unknown. If it is a tomb as Egyptologists have suggested, evidence that tombs had treasure come from other finds such as the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Excerpts from Wikipedia:
King Tutankhamun's tomb was robbed at least twice in antiquity, but based on the items taken (including perishable oils and perfumes) and the evidence of restoration of the tomb after the intrusions, it seems clear that these robberies took place within several months at most of the initial burial. 5,398 items were found in the tomb, including a solid gold coffin, face mask, thrones, archery bows, trumpets, a lotus chalice, food, wine, sandals, and fresh linen underwear. Relics from Tutankhamun's tomb are among the most traveled artifacts in the world. They have been to many countries, but probably the best-known exhibition tour was The Treasures of Tutankhamun tour, which ran from 1972 to 1979.

What is a "sudden precession of the Earth"?


When you spin a top, it does what the earth does in the Precession of the Equinoxes, but it does it faster. The gravity on earth is stronger to objects on earth than far away celestial objects. Mercury is close to the sun and we see something called Precession of the Perihelion of Mercury where that planet's orbit is affected much greater than planets further away. If a massive object suddenly passes by a planet, it will induce Torque on that planet. While our moon is not extremely massive, we know that it causes Ocean Tides so we can see see that our relatively low-mass moon has an effect upon the earth. Imagine how much greater the effects of earth's moon would be if the moon had a lot more mass. More massive bodies induce more Torque. If you have ever used a Torque Wrench, you know that greater leverage means higher Torque, which puts more Force on the bolts you are tightening. When you have greater forces in Precession, it causes a greater wobble. A massive object coming close to the earth would cause a much more sudden and violent Precession than the slow and steady Precession of the Equinoxes. Understanding this requires knowledge of physics and mechanical concepts.

How is this possible? Did you go into the pyramid 4577 years ago and take an initial measurement?

The Continental Drift is is steady drift of the continents due to how Plate Tectonics works. New land under the ocean is steadily being created and destroyed, which caused the continents to spread-out from what scientists hypothesize used to be one large super-continent called Pangea. This theory came about because the shape of the continents appear to fit together like large puzzle pieces. Since the rate of drift is very uniform over a large geological timescale, it allows for accurate calculation of the Continental Drift. That means that you can use mathematics to determine how much a landmass has moved from its original position long ago. With the pyramids, this drift would affect old measurements of Cardinal Directions. When the pyramids were aligned with north, the drift would cause a deviation. That means the pyramids would be at a greater angle moving away from their original alignment over larger timescales. Flinders Petrie performed a very accurate survey of how much deviation the pyramids are from north. We know that an extreme amount of precision went into aligning the pyramids. From the data of Petrie's survey, we can calculate the amount of drift that occurred 4,577 years ago when Khufu completed construction of the casing stones (that he added to the much older core structure of the Great Pyramid).

So do I. Who is derailing the conversation into a religious or philosophical debate? I have mentioned neither. Your theory is fatally flawed. PWH

I am not accusing you of derailing the conversation. My theory is absolutely correct. It uses highly-accurate and well-known science. I hope that the detailed explanation of the science behind my theory can allow you to finally understand what I have done rather than have you continue making baseless attacks of my theoretical work.
