> It is akin to saying it's far easier to lift a heavy weight by dragging it on a ramp than just picking it up. Obviously this is true if the weight is too heavy to lift. But suddenly we have "they mustta used ramps".
You both could be correct, depending on which Pyramid we are discussing. There is plenty of evidence, prior to using stone, the Pyramids were built in steps. Once they refined their process, they chose to use capping stones. Can we not agree, the capping stones looked better, and potentially provided a more efficient method to lift stones. Stones which were on average 2.5 tons. You and I both agree, they did not build and use ramps. That would require a major leap of engineering, and if any one section collapsed, the entire build would come to a halt. There is no evidence of ramps, other than those used to remove cut stones from (chocolate) quarrie(s), and over on a downward slope, to the base of the G1 Pyramid. This thread, should serve to cancel that way of thinking. It's not only impractical, there is no evidence.
Ramps are Debunked!
Currently, we may differ on the question... Did they fill in the Cap Stones with each layer, or not?
