Make sure when you elude to "smoke an mirrors" that you make a little more of an effort to point out the 1 possibly 200 ton block in the pavement of Khafre's Pyramid is right in the quarry from which it was extracted and is at ground level, and the 4 in Menkaure's Mortuary temple are right next to the quarry from which they were extracted and that they also are at ground level as well. More than just considerably different than claiming there were hundreds used in the construction of 40 m high walls in Khafre's Valley temple. Maybe you would like to also explain to us all why the ancient Egyptians of the 4th dynasty can not move these 5 block with the simple ools modern Egyptology ascribes to them?
