QuoteSimply stated my theory is nothing new but is rather a reinterpretation of all of the physical evidence put in a framework of logic and rediscovered by solving the Pyramid Texts in context while reverse engineering the great pyramids. Everybody thinks they are so damn smart but the fact is that it has taken me more effort and thought to put this into words than it did to solve the language

So you believe that if you post claptrap in enough places that it isn't even relevant that it magically comes true. You believe that if they believed strongly enough that they could literally move mountains. I believe you don't know how things work today or how they worked 4750 years ago. Spoiler alert; it is exactly the same. There's nothing new under the sun. 304a. To say: There

Hanslune Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Ramp use is a theory Cladking. No. It used to be an hypothesis but it failed many tests so it is no longer even a good guess. The oddest thing is that this hypothesis arose because Egyptologists believe ancient Egyptians were so backward and primitive it was impossible they could come up with an easier way.

And this is the exact same way Egyptologists maintain a belief in ramps while ignoring the physical evidence and logic that shows stones were pulled straight up the sides of five step pyramids.

Thanks for the link. I had been wanting to see this for years. It is incredible anyone can interpret that show as support for the idea that they mustta used ramps. With great fanfare they used mostly modern tools to create an eyesore that served principally to remind believers that all we need to do is look and see what reality holds. How ironic that "hidden" was "amun&qu

By dating several objects in a tomb and several different objects in the tomb of a son or grandson it should be easy enough to show the reliability of radiocarbon dating. While no apparent means exists to tie this to an absolute chronology if this same process is done during different eras of Egyptian history it should at least provide insights into its accuracy.

The last two computers I've had needed Adobe to use them. Even after downloading them it was too much of a hassle. I'm hoping they update the site one of these days since it's valuable data. But Hawass wants all this data copyrighted so getting any pictures, drawings, or other depictions of G1 will probably be behind a paywall with everything else in the world before you can blink.
