I don't have a strong opinion on most points and will observe as times goes by.

I do have a very strong opinion on the possibility of a long straight ramp. A ramp such as this would be at least eight times as much work as the pyramid and then it would have to be torn down. The volume of this couldn't be hidden anywhere. The cultural effects of this couldn't have been hidden. Nothing about this could be hidden yet it's nowhere in evidence.



Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
