Well said. Only someone unfamilair with the territory would suggest that it had been moved from Egypt.
"Here is the passage who is refered too I think :"
That's the one. Congratulations, you found what I had already quoted on the page that I named.
"I just emailed Gary requesting clarification - so hopefully, we'll know soon."
Do that if you like. I have already written him. He says in his remarks section of his site that he is having trouble keeping up with personal emails
much less answering remarks on line. If he answers in order, I will get my answer before you will :-)
While you're at it, why not ask him if he really meant to allude to Thomas Jefferson as a "member of Congress":
"In 1791, French architect and engineer Pierre L’Enfant (1754-1852) was commissioned by Washington to design the ground plan of the capital city,
and L’Enfant worked on these plans with member of Congress, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)."
Jefferson was Secretary of State at the time.
Also, please ask him about figure 4 on the Washington Pyramid page, where he points out the large triangle in the DC map with New Hampshire Ave as one side.
You might ask him if he had looked at the map before he made the following statement:
"The fact that the Capitol Building is right on the spot where the other 52-degree line ends at the base, is evident that what we see was the intended ]
The 'other 52-degree line' is the right side of the triangle, and connects Logan Cr and Mt Vernon Square, but it does not intersect with the CB as he says, take a look:
The Capitol is located north of that spot, meaning that the section of Penn Ave between the CB and WH is not at 23.5 degrees as is the section to the
northwest of the Wh. Note that in figure 4, he paints PA yellow and labels it 23.5 degrees all the way from the CB to Georgetown. If you get a large
planning map, you will see that NY Ave mirrors Penn Ave. and is also 'turned up' south of the WH by about 3 degrees. This eliminates two 23 degree segments
from his figure 6 diagram.
You will notice that figure 7 is figure 6 projected onto the DC map (I first posted about that here in 2002, do a search for bigbytes as author of posts),
and that the Washington Monument supposedly falls in the middle of the bottom line of his triangle; that is, he says nothing to suggest that it isn't located there - but if you look, or read, you will see that the monument is 371 feet east and 123 feet south of this mid-point.
This eliminates four more line segments from figure 6.
