Right, the ancient Egyptians can't organize groups of skilled workers...... so space faring Neanderthals are needed to explain such like some are claiming here. Get Real!

I am still trying to figure out how that claim of "perfection" was actually determined over that whole surface, or for that matter any of it........ cleanroom level tolerences were obtined with a damp t-shirt cleaning a 2500 year old object in a dusty & sooty underground tunnel and years and years of people touching it.
BTW the ones in question from the Serapeum were made 2000 years after the first known example..... that is 2000 years of skill development and technological advancement since stone boxes were made continuously over this period. Can you make the same claims of "perfection" about the early granite sarcophagi in the Great Pyramid or any of the others from the 4th dynasty in terms of "perfection"?

It's pretty clear some seem to think the known ancient Egyptians were not capable of any level of intellect...... that speaks pretty clearly for itself too.
