Cladking has no formal education in Egyptology, linguistics, nor any translation ability. He bases his writings and thoughts on his pseudo contextualization of the English language translations of the text. He tries to apply a religious text written generations after the fact as a builders guide to the Great Pyramid. This is intellectual fallacy at its best. He even thinks there is a magic kitty cat (Mafdet) living in G1. Along with geysers on the Giza plateau. Please give me a break. I would like to see some actual citations and references.
