Hello Archae,

AS: 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.

SC: Well thank you, Archae, for admitting the FACT that THERE ARE a number of 200+ ton blocks in use within structures on the Giza plateau. You seem to be suggesting now that G2 and G3 pyramids were built in a quarry? These 200+ blocks had to be QUARRIED, MOVED and POSITIONED - not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination using bronze age technology since I am sure you will also aware that the FORCE required to move such a megalithic block ONE FOOT or ONE MILE is the same - it is the energy expended that is different. As I said - smoke and mirrors.

The FACT remains - the AE of the 4th dynasty quarried, moved and positioned a number of 200+ ton blocks. Period.

AS: More than just considerably different than claiming there were hundreds used in the construction of 40 m high walls in Khafre's Valley temple.

SC: And GH and RB accept their original assessment was in error. Well done in pointing this out. You get two brownie points now take "Yes" for an answer and move on.

AS: 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 tools modern Egyptology ascribes to them?

SC: Says who? Are you now saying to us that the AE of the 4th Dynasty couldn't move these blocks when evidently they did? Or are you just being sarcastic? The AE of the 4th dynasty quarried these 200+ ton blocks, moved these 200+ ton blocks and set them in place using only their bronze age technology and a little bit of savvy and ingenuity.

There - does that make it any more unequivoocal for you?

SC
