Krupp is only one of the critics of the OCT, and he's not a very good one. The real problem with the OCT is withs with the mapping of the stars onto the pyramid centres. Tonight I was looking up at Orion's belt and noticed that the central star is equidistant from the outer two stars, but the centre of Khafre's pyramid is not equidistant from the centre of the other two pyramids. This means that there is no exact correlation.

In The Orion Mystery, Bauval and Gilbert use the centres of Khufu and Menkaure as anchor points for the correlation, but when you place Al Nitak and Mintaka on the "corresponding" pyramids, the central star, Al Nilam, falls nowhere near Khafre's centre. To get around this problem, Bauval blurs the images of the stars so that Al Nilam becomes very large and takes up most of Khafre's base. One could call this "fudging the evidence."
