As mentioned in earlier posts: if Vyse had any incriminating textual evidence - drawings and/or journal entries - still in his possession after his books were published, why did he not destroy it? Many criminals of the present day, under pressure to destroy damning evidence, try and flush it away. I've been unable to discover when flush toilets were introduced to Stoke Place - which leaves hi

Scott Creighton is of course the author of Secret Chamber of Osiris and Great Pyramid Hoax. Both of these works refer to the "Humphries Brewer as eyewitness to the pyramid forgery" claim, which in turn forms an important element of Creighton's own theories of a more ancient origin for the pyramids at Giza, whose design serves as a warning of ancient and future cosmic superwaves. It's

Rosellini said that, obviously, it wouldn't have made much sense for the King to have tried to store grain in a structure like this, because the quantity that could be stored would only have been about 1/60 of its mass (Lecture, 28th March 1840).

A more general view of the importance of the Pleiades in ancient cultures: QuoteNothing in the sky is quite like the Pleiades. They are a conspicuous collection of stars six of which can be seen with the unaided eye under normal viewing conditions ... Fortuitously, the Pleiades are located near the ecliptic ... This position is what makes them useful, for the round of seasons is reflected i

Well: sfbey sums it up here: QuoteYou have no evidence that Vyse copied the cartouches along with crew names from some secret cache. And then according to you he destroyed the original crew names?
