Thanos: You know full well asking the question as "yes/no" is nothing less than a vapid ploy to solicit a false positive answer to validate your position which invariably it does not.
SC: And you know full well that your inability to give a a "No" response to my question is because you couldn't and that is because my 'artists' impression' does convey a stone box filled with a "great quantity of earth and stones", ergo, my artist's impression agrees with Belzoni's description of what he found in the stone box in G2.
Thanos: ...tegardless of what it "looks like" it is still only your personal representation of it having nothing to do with what Belzoni may or may not have discovered.
SC: Well, yes it is my "representation" - that much is obvious to anyone who knows the subject or has been (painfully) following this sub-thread--and I have never claimed otherwise. It is a "representation", my very own "artist's impression", a 'mock-up' of what Belzoni found in the stone box in G2. It won't be exactly what Belzoni found, of course, but it IS a stone box 'filled' with a "great quantity of earth and stones" that, nevertheless, gives us an idea, an impression, of what Belzoni found. My "representation" does that and you cannot dispute that it does that.
Thanos: Ironically, you have said this yourself in so many words as you acknowledge it is only your "opinion" regardless. And I do not need to answer yes/no just because you wish to avoid the context of an explanation and have answered your question as I saw fit in a manner both fair to myself, the readership, and the topic at large.
SC: Stop whaffling and stop kidding yourself. My "representation" looks like a stone box 'filled' with a "great quantity of earth and stones". Just as Belzoni describes. Get over it.
Here are the pertinent FACTS:
1) There is a large stone box in pyramid G2. FACT.
2) According to Belzoni, this stone box was once 'filled' with a "great quantity of earth and stones" (and some fragments of bull bones). FACT.
3) The stone box in G2 is now empty. FACT.
4) Later dynasties in ancient Egypt made small boxes (sometimes stone, wood or fired) and filled these with earth, stones and grain. FACT.
5) These small ceremonial boxes were placed in the ground and had a large stone (symbolizing the pyramid mound) placed on top. FACT.
6) The box in G2 pyramid contained similar content to the later, smaller boxes. FACT.
Now, tell me--where have I misrepresented any of the pertinent facts of this discussion?
That I see a connection between the two types of box is my opinion.
[snip] Whaffle. I've always said you're entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine. And so we go full circle....
