SC: ... This has already been established. You have already been told that all the pyramids - save two vaults under Djoser's pyramid - were picked clean.
SB: Scott really. Such utter nonsense. That is no proof !
SC: With respect, Don. Saying our theory is "utter nonsense" will not make it so. The 40,000 artefacts found under the Step Pyramid provides very compelling proof that Djoser's pyramid was indeed built as a Recovery Vault. Given that this pyramid contains vaults within it allows us to reasonably conclude that the other pyramids at Meidum, Dahshur and Giza with similar features also served a similar function. One thing is for certain here - all these pyramids were all built to last; they were all built to be SEEN, to be FOUND (just like Djoser's at Saqqara).
SC: ... But the vast recovery cache recovered from under Djoser's pyramid is a strong indicator as to the reason why all those giant pyramids were built.
DB: Strong indicator ? How so ? Scott do you realize how silly you are sounding now.
SC: The evidence is there in the Step pyramid. The problem here is your complete refusal to accept that it is perfectly reasonable and legitimate to consider that other pyramids of this period would have served the same function as that of Djoser's pyramid. No one is forcing you toi accept it but that is our position until proven otherwise.
DB: It is sad that some excellent work by Gary is getting muddied with this fantasy.
SC: I do not, for a second, think that Gary thinks that.
