Dr Trogologdyte writes “It is unclear as to what data was applied to Google Earth to reach the conclusion that the axis of Khufu’s Causeway Boat Pit points toward Easter Island ”in the same way as an arrow or a road sign”.

Something that points can be described in many ways. The premise of your last message was that we were discussing ‘spots’ on a line which, as I pointed out, was not the case, so not sure why you repeat me here.

Dr Trogolodyte gives coordinates refuting the Google Earth map and finishes with “The sum and substance of the claim is unproven. The stated Azimuth/Bearing does not point to Easter Island, or “Nazca” (whatever that may mean).”

Frankly, I have no way of telling whether this is the expression of your opinion or a fact! Perhaps I would be mightily impressed and even cowed if I knew your credentials. But I don't. Has anyone challenged Horatech directly on his manner of proceeding apart from this message addressed to me? It seems you are in a better position, being knowledgeable on astronomy and terrestrial measurements, to test and challenge him on the subject than me. Clearly, you went to Horatech’s post to look at his Google Earth map, not posted here. Perhaps you could repeat your findings to Horatech directly under his message where he prefers to function and he will, no doubt, respond where (as you well know) I cannot. I am presuming you are aware that my comments are the result of his information.

As things stand, I see no reason to doubt the fact that the 3rd boat pit in front of the Great Pyramid of Giza points in the general direction of the Pacific Ocean and, unless Horatech has got it wrong, might even point directly at Easter Island. I suggest you take it up with him and we will all follow with bated breath. In the meantime, I apologize profusely for mentioning Nazca without its lines, and apparently confusing you.
