To get a latitudinal hit on the pyramid you actually need no more than five digits, as opposed to all nine. The last four numbers are basically redundant and pointless.
The author is trying to dictate how long one is allowed to go when determining latitude digitally, by suggesting that one can go nor further than 29.979175, or 6 decimal places. This is unscientific, arbitrary and ridiculous, actually. With decimals, one can drill down as far as one likes. Each iteration makes for a successively smaller line. That's all. The one that contains light speed's full sig in meters is an inch or so wide from north to south. I forget the exact number. But the librt is real, very real, and it is very improbable that the GP runs over such a thin line.
The only actual point of controversy is if the GP wasn't originally over the line and now is due to continental drift. That seems unlikely, to me.
" In order to make the connection we have to actively include various options that fit the original claim"
This is a classic pseudo skeptic line, Lee. The inference is that one is looking 'anywhere' to make a reasonable match. Instead, one is looking to no less than today's global measuring standard, the meter, in conjunction with the dominant global grid. These two elements combine to produce light's full signature in meters. It's that simple.
The FACT that this can be done at all with the Great Pyramid, the world's remaining Wonder, is very improbable, and NOT something that you or your debunking allies are likely to be able to reproduce when looking to random structures.
This, I figure is why some try to downplay what's involved. Try to find other things that also produce light's full signature, then let's see how those elements compare to the things just mentioned. That's where the rubber meets the road in this discussion.
The speed of light through vacuum is an integer. A latitude of 299,792,458 isn't a valid degree so we have to consciously put a decimal in the right place. Two options are available, 2.99792458 and 29.9792458, so another conscious decision must be made to fit the speed of light claim
