and,..I find it amusing that the experts use the Herodotus build time(which appears to be non-negotiable) but completely disregard the 100,000 slave manpower. Because even they know that Egypt would collapse. The strain would be like cutting the Carotid artery. SJ

Steve, Read a while back that Lehner(think it was Lehner) said that he thought the Giza quarries were large enough to supply the required stones, even though much of the quarry is now filled with sand. But when a modern day quarry engineer addresses the 3 min. pace with words like "insane" and "laser",...I have to question everthing. SJ

Steve, Don't get me wrong, I commend you on your work. Yes, all that water and they were too dumb-ass to use it. Maybe they were just a bunch of hillbilly recknecks. But tell you what,..put one of those rednecks on a hard job, and I guarantee they will find a better, easier and faster(mostly easier) way to do it. They maybe don't have much book learning, but they have a lot of common sense

Sorry Steve, but this whole thing reminds me of Sully and the Miracle on the Hudson. The board(Egyptologists) manipulated the figures(they cheated). So Sully says,"can we get serious now". The old Warhorse knew he couldn't make, and he saved a lot of people....never forget the human factor. SJ

Hi Steve, Under Egyptologists parameters and Western Religions obsession with whipping slaves(see Hollywood), and whipping wives(see Rule of Thumb),..I gave the best solution I had. Sorry, will try to do better next time. SJ

Steve, So just how do you quarry maybe almost 4,500,000 stones on the Giza Plateau in maybe 40 yrs., without massive man/woman power? SJ

The average speed of one stone set every 3 min. is the end result over 20 yrs. But there will be downtime, there is always downtime. Things just have a tendency to break. So, I guess when things were going well, they were cruisin' along at an impressive gentle warp speed of a stone set every 2 min., or less. All these thousands of workers and a standing army to maintain...am telling you

Hi Steve, Liked your facetiously factual comment. So here's one kind of like it. I believe the world record for running a marathon is 2hrs.,1min.,39 sec. What if I told you that I know a guy that can run it 3 min. flat. What would you think? Would you spend the next twenty years trying to figure out how he did it? Under Egyptologist's scenario, the sheer manpower and support would br

Steve, I find it ironic that they could lift massive stones at such a breakneck speed that many think Alien technology was used. Yet, they could not even raise water a few hundred feet. The shaduf, the bucket elevator belt/wheel, the primitive water pumps. Or, if it makes one feel better.....a thousand mules and asses carrying water jars or skin water bags, on wooden or earthen zigzag/s

cladking, The status quo must be maintained. Some experts now think that the workers were well taken care of and not whipped and beaten slaves. This undermines Western Religion beliefs. They are quite satisfied with whipped slaves, and Egypt is probably quite satisfied with the tourism. What's not to like? This is one applecart you do not want to upset. SJ

Steve, Some say Sargon of Akkad tore down the walls of Uruk and some say he dismantled them. As far as I'm concerned, he was the only one that could have ever made the Giza Plateau happen. To me, it just makes sense. Btw,..I wonder who was first, Sargon or Moses. SJ

Talk to an Engineer at your local Limestone Quarry. Ask them how long it takes to quarry and finish just one block using the most advanced tools, equipment and technology in the known history of mankind. I talked to one not long ago. We discussed the 3-5 minute pace,..he said,"that's insane"(his words not mine). Then he said,"maybe they had a laser". Tell you what,..g

Maybe you all should have been a little nicer to Ori. I thought that sometimes he asked the right River questions(some rulers have been known to change the course of a river). So,...one stone quarried approx. every five minutes, day in and day out for 20 yrs. I don't think so. But what bothers me is what happened to all those Uruk wall stones, and the many other city wall stones that Sa

Hi Drew, I do think pi was used. I don't need an exercise to try and convince me of what I already believe. But some say that Egypt was not aware of pi,..and that's fine,..and they very well may be right. And all this tells me is that the first Designer was not Egyptian(well, maybe half Egyptian...long story). ....or, pi just showed up by happenchance. And, if that's the case, then

Would the accepted measurements of The Great Pyramid used today, be the same as when it was newly completed? Several thousand years and probably several(perhaps many) earthquakes have touched the Giza Plateau. Heat/expansion, cold/contraction and possibly some erosion also over several thousand years. Would the base have expanded some and the height settled some? I personally think that to

Or maybe Khufu used his own physical cubit measurement. After all, it's his house isn't it? And perhaps Khafre used his, and Nitocris hers. SJ

Hook and ball? Lordy, you guys, you give up already? That was fast. The evidence is there and the material(and lack thereof). Maybe try not to over think it. Again, perhaps is time to ask a child. Some kids are actually pretty good at using something like one of those. SJ

And GG, Two total solar eclipses in about seven years converge on Makanda. Makanda has what they call the Vulture Fest, where the 'Vultures Gather'. If one views the paths of the two eclipses over the earth, do the paths not resemble a vulture? And, the corpse of the star being I saw is nearby,...about 181 mi. away. SJ

Hi Spiros, Personally, I think that the Pyramid of Khafre is a message to the future. And for someone to say that they made a mistake and changed the design midstream, is a good way to never find it,..in my opinion. But is much better not to try and find it. First, change the design of a 'know it all' attitude and then Khafre's Pyramid just might find you,...on some cold, dark early winter
