It's probably the only ramp theory that could be consistent with the evidence. There's another that suggests shallow ramps covering each side that almost fits.

The biggest problem with the internal ramp theory is that almost all the lines on the gravimetric scan are parallel to the base. This is impossible for internal ramps so most of the lines are showing something else.

It's extremely improbable that ramps of any sort were employed in building the great pyramids. There just isn't room to work and no one would cut 2 1/2 ton stones to drag up ramps. The lack of sloped lines proves that almost all ramp configurations were not used. Integral ramps are unevidenced and largely absurd. Even if such had been a possibility their existence is denied by the way lines wrap arond corners and intersect with vertical lines.



Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
