For the third time I’m reading Fingerprint and as with the other times I’m enjoying it immensely and always seem to get new nuggets from it each and every time.

Recently I bought the updated version ISBN 0 7126 7906 5 and am currently enjoying the beauty of all the mathematics wrapped up in the jigsaw puzzle aka the Great Pyramid. Specifically page 459 (Part VII – Earth Measurers). And apologies if someone else has brought this up – I ran several search queries and couldn’t see anything!

Getting even more specific I was intrigued to see that there were supposedly errors in the size of the pyramid’s base (3023.16 feet compared to the Earth’s circumference of 3043.39 feet multiplied by 43,200). I say “supposedly” as these craftsmen were precise beyond belief. Surely they wouldn’t have made such an error?

I have hypothesised a possible solution/theory which is relatively simple: the Earth’s circumference continues to increase (and decrease) in size over time. This would mean that assuming we’ve gone through a period of growth we are no longer comparing apples to apples.

If we could work out at what rate this change in the Earth’s circumference happened/happens and apply the appropriate numbers to the same %s we could ascertain when the pyramids were built beyond any question.

I’ve worked out that the Earth’s circumference would have needed to have been 24736.92 miles – a difference of 165.53 miles in total. Giving us an average change of 13.24 miles per 1000 years (assuming 10,500 BC is the date when the foundations were laid)

What could cause the increase (and decrease?) to the circumference? One or all of the following:

1. The Earth’s spin on its own axis – there would be more force exerted on the widest point of a sphere which could “pull” the circumference out of shape more and more.
2. Additional sediment caused by changes to climate, volcanoes and especially water rising/decreasing due to warming/cooling of poles
