What the quarry marks show is that Khufu was involved in the construction process at the very least at and to some extent beyond the RC, not that he originated the project or even completed it.

Tell me how I'm wrong Merrell.

Merrell's reply:

"See Lehner 1997: 108".

As Merrell knows, as he knows I know, pg 108 of the Complete Pyramids, or the entire chapter beginning with pg 108: The Great Pyramid of Khufu, let alone the entire book, is there anything to be found that contradicts my statement above. To make it worse, pg 108, and the G1 chapter, does not even mention the quarry marks. Hmm. Try pg51 which still says nothing to my statement above. Yet Merrell does not respond to me directly and deflects to this reference as proof of contradiction anyways? Curious.

Thanos:
You also stated as "fact":

"No, the Great Pyramid was built in the time of Khufu, the mid-3rd millennium BC". Again, we do not know to what extent Khufu was involved in the project. "He intended it for use as his tomb..."[/b]

No, Merrell, we do not know if any pharaoh intended their pyramids to be their tomb.

His reply:

"See Edwards 1947: 20, 116".

Edwards offers no evidence to refute my statement yet again Merrell deflects to it anyways as if it did. A pattern is developing here.

Thanos:

If Pyramids are not Tombs, then where are the Pharaohs?
Readers would note your lack of participation there....

But again, please tell me how I am wrong.

Merrell:

"I didn't realise that it was obligatory to reply to all of your posts".

How does citing one thread equate to making it "obligatory to reply to all of your posts"? It does not. You know it does not nor is that the point.

Merrell:

You are just repeating what you just said. Where are you getting this "understanding" from...?

Again-these dates are not accepted by Egyptology-where are you getting this from?

Gadzooks Merrell. From this article:

Quote

Particle physicists have uncovered a large, hidden void in Khufu's Pyramid, the largest pyramid in Giza, Egypt – built between 2600 and 2500 BC.

Which would be the dates accepted by Egyptology at large.

Which continues to say:

"The discovery, published in Nature..."

Which the link, the abstract of the paper, in the very first sentence says:

Quote

The Great Pyramid, or Khufu’s Pyramid, was built on the Giza plateau in Egypt during the fourth dynasty by the pharaoh Khufu (Cheops)1, who reigned from 2509 BC to 2483 BC.

It would be helpful to you if you actually read some of the citations you cite.

It was that thing biting you on the ass.

Don't be such a cad. You are the one offering this "suggestion"-if this is the source where the claim Khufu reigned from 2509 BC to 2483 BC then quote it here as to why they think this.
