thanks for forwarding this.
My 2 decade + career in oil-nat/gas steel fab with huge scale plate,
so ya....you experience what occurs with offset handling errors,
or when machinery fails...
or when rigging.....fails.
At Giza...we are told or roughly framed that the GP was some 20 years in the making.
and then....the Fabulous flying Khufu family builds 2 more pyramids,
they haul out those huge blocks and build the Valley and Sphinx temple,...
oh...and carve out the Sphinx
thats alot of stone cutting,rigging,moving etc.
and then.....a percentage..if not all of the stone...requires augment facing to square/shape the blocks as per design.
the claim as per above..that the FFK's built everything ascribed to them gives me pause.
not saying Egyptians could not remove blocks from the ground,face them and then move them..and then augment them again before final placement.
its the scale and numeric side involved here...which gives me pause.
Maybe if the claim for FFK 's was supplimented with info that the project began during Snefru's reign.....add another 40 years
yet we are told Snefru built 3 in his reign...
How many citizens of Egypt exist in this time period to allocate to these projects?
I'm thinking the numeric side is not there,
nor the logistic side/resources to build from scratch.
adoption theory and building of some projects are reasonable.
I understand the concept of adoption causes the Egyptology crowd to roll their eyes and laugh,
yet it does make sense....based on certain information returns on the Valley temple and Sphinx temple limestone block erosion.
that they*...and the Sphinx....are vastly older than Khufu's period of time.
and if they did not build them....we know they repaired them.
so why is it that the GP and other huge pyramids are not from earlier ages...possibly even into the pre 10,000 bc window?
adoption may be a complete reality...of certain sites.
As a trained Senior rescue first aid during my last contract for 5 years,
nearly everyone working the shop floor went thru the first aid room with an injury...including myself.
many were off work for weeks and months....
and some never returned...
the attrition ratio for 200 men was high.
add to this....the number of accident events on the site.
building a pyramid the size of GP would be a certain attrition ratio reality.
so again...how many people are around to do this?
are some of them slaves from nearby regions?
is there a standing army making sure they work...?
The story we are told via Herodotus and Egyptology does'nt fly with me.
Vyse frauded the Khufu grafitti in the chamber.
we are being fed an agenda driven story/timeline....
the evidence [VT/Sphinx T and Sphinx margin its older than 1st Dynasty.
if this much is proven off timeline.....
then its reasonable to conclude adoption theory occurred.
there are casing blocks from Snefru's pyramids with work gang graffiti in red ochre...
suggesting he did adoption/restoration as well.
