FD: Well, I hope you see from my question on the Mysteries-board, that there are of course "many people" still thinking that it was/is impossible the Great Pyramid.

SC: I did not need to see such a question on the Mysteries Board to know that 'many people' have difficulty accepting the AE of the 4th Dynasty constructed the Old Kingdom pyramids.

You will equally see that there are "many people" who do indeed accept such a fact, including a number of alternative authors. As I said - one can still be in the "alternative camp" whilst also accepting the Gizamids were constructed by the 4th Dynasty AEs.

However, as I see it, who constructed these monuments is not the main point of contention between orthodox and antidox "believers". Rather, the 'why' question is somewhat more important, in particular with regards to whether these monuments - Gizamids - represent the culmination of a long-term, multi-generational pyramid-building plan based upon an ancient design passed down through many generations of the AE civilisation.

You were asked this very question by a couple of posters during your tenure as AoM and it remains the one question you failed to repsond to. Fair enough - that is your right. However, I take your silence on this particular question to be quite revealing.

In saying all of this, I think your time as AoM to have been of great benefit and you have shown how it could have been possible for the Old Kingdom AEs to have used their simple tools - combined with a bit of ingenuity and savvy - to have achieved the remarkable engineering feat that is Giza. Well done.

Regards,

SC
