There is nothing BUT doubt left. Again, shouldn't you have to show Egyptians used measurements like miles, inches, feet and meters before you proclaim their uses in the GP? The AEs left measuring sticks you know, and we already know the origin of the mile, the inch, the foot and the meter. Here's a hint - they didn't come from Egypt. Harte

Sorry, had it backwards. If one side is one unit and the diagonal is two units, then the other side is √3 unit. Works the same way, though, regarding the AE knowledge of it. Harte

Given that the Egyptians didn't use inches or feet, can you do this with the royal cubit (which, BTW, is 20.6102, not 20.619 inches)? Harte

Only with MS Paint. I don't have any desire to do that. Why do you think the shaft wouldn't engage? Do you imagine that Stock's version of the shaft is the only possibility, that Stocks isn't going for proof of concept, but for proof of design? Harte

The only way to use such a borer is at an angle until the vessel has been bored to a width equal to the horizontal extent of the borer. How on Earth is that a "problem?" Harte

I said "community" because I had expected Stower to refute the claim that Stock's method is "fantasy," considering it demonstrates a plausible method and serves as proof of concept. I've experienced a multitude of situations where fringe proponents demand that granite cannot be cut with copper and sand. Stocks proves that is wrong. I haven't see where Stocks explicitl

Personally, I believe the flood myth arose from an actual flood. Problem is, there's lots of floods in the past. Big ones. I don't see why similar tales wouldn't have arisen from completely different floods. Once a culture has some sort of flood myth, it's easy to see how such myths from different cultures could be confabulated at a later date through cultural contacts. I mean, hunter ga

There is no evidence for Hebrews being enslaved in Egypt. However, there is plenty of evidence for their captivity in Babylonia. During the Babylonian Captivity, rabbis were put to work in libraries. Afterwards, we get the flood myth, among others. Harte
