My Reply: You are simply unable to accept any and all facts that don't support your LLAC 'Theory.'

MY Reply: "SEEMS coated...SEEMS uncoated......SUGGEST it's coated..." Also, we are talking about the LIMESTONE blocks here, NOT Granite. Your willful ignorance doesn't change the facts either.

Your earlier comments ARE simply YOUR opinion, and in NO way can YOUR opinions be considered valid physical evidence. Why don't you apply YOUR standard of proof to YOUR 'non-claims'??? (YOU are seeing what YOU want to see IN PICS. You have NOT been there, the 3 HAVE been there.)

No doubt Houdin knows ALOT more than you about Geology, ETC. regardless of how unclear it is to YOU what he knows.

You ARE fixated with telling us that they are NOT Tura, and your posts in 'Raising The Roof' are ample proof of this.

Bears repeating: Ori refuses to accept the truth, and is too wishy-washy to
claim ANYTHING definitively....BUT, this doesn't stop you from telling us repeatedly that they are not Tura.




Try following your own advice, "Stop this nonsense."



Currently accepted Pyramide dates stand until proven otherwise.
Campbell's Chamber roof blocks are Tura Limestone until proven otherwise.
THE Cartouche in Campbell's Chamber IS Authentic, as are ALL other RC's Glyphs, until proven otherwise.
