How do you quote a post and not read it? Did you understand any of it? Quote... and this is PROVEN BEYOND DOUBT by their refusal to release the results of the infrared imaging even to Peers. I have evidence and logic to support every single one of my positions. That Egyptology is afraid of the pyramid and the facts is self evident by their refusal to investigate and publish data about t

That number 307 is a little concerning since one animal is dead (upside down) and it appears to be made for a left handed operator(!) but otherwise they do appear to be tops. I'll think about it further. They could of course be "spinners" like in "spin the bottle". edited to add link for pictures;

As it concerns the pyramids Egyptology is the very epitome of Look and See Science. Rather than experimenting, measuring, or testing everything is conducted within the framework of the beliefs of Egyptologists who came before. Great Egyptologists like Budge are excommunicated as ancient sources like Herodotus and Manetho are wholly ignored. Rather than applying modern knowledge and modern inst

Egyptology solved the Ancient Language in terms of later words because they assumed the builders never fundamentally changed. They used horrendous methodology and sample bias to make conclusions about the great pyramid builders who repeatedly and l

In the ENTIRE Egyptian language words for "thought", "belief", taxonomies, and reductionistic words are unattested. Clearly they didn't think like us.
