Sam, Sure it is. Not all of the stones in the pyramids were huge. The pyramids were built one course at a time. They were like ramps. Now the huge internal stones would have been jacked up as needed. It was an amazing job, but why do you think the Egyptian engineers couldn't do it? Do you think they were bumpkins?
"The stone isn't merely lifted from a flat surface to build a pyramid but from a narrow ledge so even if it could be raised (which is doubtful) it would then have to be slid sideways onto a higher narrow ledge.
Indeed, the gravimetric scan shows these are step pyramids and if there were ledges on the courses of the steps (also doubtful) they'd be only inches wide and moving them would be impossible.
The pyramid is what it is and teetering would be not only improbable because of the nature of the pyramid but improbable because of the enormous danger a cascade failure would pose to the workers. There simply aren't enough graves of mutilated and broken workers in the cemetery to reflect having built the pyramids in such a way.
Teetering would be far more effective on steep cliff face ramps and they could much more easily move them sideways. The danger would be less as well. But then the obvious question becomes why didn't they use the same method on the cliff face that they used on the steep pyramid sides."
For each of the above points Sam, you have to analyze the stones sized used for each level and to e positioning on the levels. The Egyptians managed it so you will have to as well.
"How they moved 100,000 tons of Tura Limestone to the pyramid is incidental to lifting 6 1/2 million tons of limestone to an average 150'."
Your argument here is that they moved 6 1/2 million tons at one time? Why? Oh I know, you think that they are stinky-footed bumpkins who couldn't engineer themselves out of a box.
