Dr. Troglodyte writes “One last point of paramount consideration is the matter of ‘relevance’. Even if the proposal were not prima facially specious, what would be the significance of relating the constructions of Khufu (+/- 2589–2566 B.C.), the constructions of the Nazca people (+/- 100 B.C.-A.D. 700), and the constructions of the Polynesian inhabitants of Easter Island (+/- A.D. 1100–1680)? These three cultures differed not only in great distance, but also in great spans of time. The ‘relevance’ they each share is the characteristic nature of creative, industrious, talented humans; ’three points on a Small Circle’.”


Dr. Troglodyte, Perhaps Horatech or someone else will address your calculations and conclusions made in this post – or not. I have no skin in that game. But, if I might make so bold, the above final paragraph is off topic and turns the discussion about coordinates on its head. You questioned the accuracy of the Google Earth trajectory that would use a calculation based entirely on the bearing (or heading as Horatech termed it) calculated between two points on the boat pit. I don’t know who is right or wrong but the above is irrelevant to that subject.

You mention ‘the constructions of Khufu’ but the message I posted at the origin made it very clear that I was not referring to Khufu or to the Great Pyramid. I was referring to three holes in the ground that exist on its eastern façade (one more repetition for anyone who hasn’t been following). I did suggest in my opening message that they were of a different facture and perhaps a different era. Since it is not possible to link them to Khufu by anything other than unscientific inference, however vehemently and convincingly employed, your ‘last point of paramount consideration’ falls flat on that score.

Although not my subject, apparently the Nazca/Nasca lines are open to debate where dating is concerned, and the same has been said of the Moai figures on Easter Island – still not all thoroughly excavated to their foundations, some of which far beneath the current ground levels. So, all three proposals and your conclusion are not only irrelevant to the matter in hand but specious, in that the places discussed contain nothing evident that either relates them or negates that relationship. You mention ‘Creative, industrious, talented humans; ’three points on a Small Circle’. I wholeheartedly agree with your somewhat poetic overall description of the qualities of humans, but then they have also all long been capable of travelling great distances. And leaving messages in stone for posterity, don’t you think?

Finally, and remembering that I am not personally in a position to dispute your coordinates which take the 3rd Giza boat with its pit (and causeway) into the middle of the Pacific Ocean where it must surely conveniently sink, leave to one side the Nazca coordinates, forget Easter Island. Consider lifting the great ship into the skies and then sailing it straight ahead around the world. Where would it go?
