Ray, I completely accept there are limitations to my analysis of Pillar 43. My aim is not to find an absolutely correct value. Rather, it is to provide numerical estimates that can be used to justify a strong position, and I think I have done this. You make a good point regarding a deck of cards. Indeed, the animal symbols appearing on Pillar 43 are actually quite rare at GT. If we take the appearance frequency of each animal symbol into account, the statistics will only improve. In any case, because of the subjectivity of the pattern matches, taken into account by the ranking table, it is still not a properly scientific result. Nevertheless, every objector should first publish their own ranking table to ensure they are not being inconsistent with their own 'eyes'. This is something that none of my critics have ever done, like Rebecca, because they know they will contradict themselves.

In any event, having deduced the ancient zodiac from observations at several sites, it is the objective statistical test against Palaeolithic cave art radiocarbon data that scientifically validates the hypothesis. Given the lack of any alternative explanation for this correlation, it in my view constitutes a proof. I'm much more interested in your view of this correlation - did you look at this work yet. It is described in several places, including my videos on YouTube.
