…His lead into ramp took them 2/3rds of the way up into the build. Additionally, that lead in ramp is 15 feet wide, so they could bring in a front loader. Anyone with an impartial observance, can see this does not work. Until someone can do better than Mark & Rodger, this notion of ramps is debunked.”
From the referenced video and the associated video transcript:
”ROGER HOPKINS: We're all set. Well, it worked like I figured it would. I mean, I knew I was going to have a little problem on the corner there, but if that had been a five-ton block, we could have done it this same way. This is twice the grade we had before, easily.
MARK LEHNER: And I like the way you distributed the men going back down the ramp, and the pull as well, so that you're using the ramp in both directions.
ROGER HOPKINS: Well, there's no place else for them to go.
MARK LEHNER: It was a little bit complicated changing the ropes and so on.
ROGER HOPKINS: This is the first time we did it.
MARK LEHNER: It's the first time you did it.
NARRATOR: Roger only had enough time to build the ramp around three sides of his pyramid*, but he was confident that he could have continued wrapping it around to the top. The success with the ramp convinced him that a similar ramp was used by the builders of the great pyramid. Mark and Roger's project has focused on figuring out how to build the main structure of the pyramid. But the ancient builders had to deal with engineering problems in the complex inner chambers as well. Deep in the heart of Khufu's Pyramid is his tomb. It was supposed to protect the pharaoh's mummified body for an eternity. But all that now remains is his empty granite sarcophagus.”
*”MARK LEHNER: So basically, you have three weeks to move 189 stones into a pyramid?
ROGER HOPKINS: Right. Doesn't look like they'll fit all in this small square we're in, but. . .
MARK LEHNER: A pyramid of how big? How tall is it supposed to be?
ROGER HOPKINS: Well, it's a little less than six meters high, and probably about nine meters at the base.
MARK LEHNER: And you think this is do-able in three weeks? You're going to do this by ancient Egyptian methods? Are you going to be faithful to the way the ancient Egyptians do it, or are you going to come in here with a backhoe and a loader and a forklift?
ROGER HOPKINS: Well, let's put it this way. I'll be as—probably—as faithful as I can be, given that I only have three weeks here.”
