Can anyone show a pictorial example of a stone carved sun disk with the hatch lines, or any other detail such as crosses, painted in? Lothur

All dictionaries aside. I've heard no one else pose a possible solution to the glaringly obvious different glyphs, their use and their meaning except Scott. It's questions like his, and the ritually dogmatic replies he and those like him get, that make the study of history such a pain the the rear for most people. It reminds me of when people realized Hebrew could be translated differently lead

An elegant solution. With this in mind, how might it affect the translation of the Vyse "Khufu" inscription? Lothur

Though I generally agree with the statement "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence". In this case, as with many issues of history, the absence of evidence does negate the validity of orthodox claims of certain knowledge. For some reason the scientific principles of proof do not apply to those in the Ivory towers. My children are constantly being "taught" theory as

Martin Stower wrote: Ancient Egyptian 1: “Khufu built the Great Pyramid.” The AE claimed many things, not the least of which was the godhood of their rulers..does this make it so? Ancient Egyptian 2: “Duh!” duh? Suggestions: 1) They weren’t interested in restating what (to them) was obvious. So you would have us believe they built the biggest damn building around and didn't even scrat

So the answer to the Vyse question may lie in a comparison of paint used for the disputed Khufu glyph against the partially visible ones. Was he capable of forgery? certainly. Does that mean he did? We know that the builders painted on the stones in ways not expected to be seen. Why? We don't know. Was Khufu the builder? again, we don't know. Did the AE build G1 or inherit it? we don't know

Perhaps they were only intended to be seen by the dead/god during ascendance. Stone no longer being an impediment :) Either way the fact remains there is scant evidence to tell us who built G1 and the clearly hidden glyphs serve some other purpose than that of declaration of ownership. Has anyone ever sampled the paint the glyphs were created with? Lothur

I whole heartedly agree. But I find it sad and frustrating that factual accuracy as a scientific view point can be considered and alternative view. Lothur

So what exactly is the purpose of holding to and promoting the idea that we know? What is lost by being honest regarding our knowledge of history? What is gained by lying? and how is humanity better served with a lie? Lothur

I made the same graffiti point earlier, And I have worked in construction for years, both big and small projects. Three points. 1. It would not be unusual to "tag" a difficult part of the project in memorial of having achieved the task. Knowing no offense would be taken because it would never be seen. 2. Who said the underside of any, if not most of the stones, in the G1 construction

One simple question. What facts exist that determine Khufu built G1?

So did Vyse read Italian? One has to wonder. As long as there is no 'smoking Khufu gun' proving he built it there is no reason to believe he did. And claiming he did is as fanciful as aliens doing it. Why is it so hard to say " We don't know" ? Lothur

Fantastic! Couple the interpretation issue with the context of its placement (virtually inaccessible) and its method of make (crudely painted on rough carved stone) and this cartouche gives a net result of.......nothing. If tagging a monument was a method of laying claim to a structure then most of the rail cars and thousands of buildings,bridges and highway retaining walls belong to gang membe

1486. Lurkers
Hello, my name is Lothur, and I am a lurker. I have followed the discussions and debates on this board for years to my great pleasure. The diversity of opinion and thought here has given me hope that our species is not yet doomed. We all share the common belief that there are questions that must be answered. Some of us (or should I say you) have put an impressive amount of work into your chos

And yet in this article about Cabot it states he chose to look north because... "He had a simple plan, to start from a northerly latitude where the longitudes are much closer together, and where, as a result, the voyage would be much shorter.[5]" in my search, so far, I've seen no flat world maps with longitudinal lines getting closer...only on the round world maps.

it also said its base is 300 x 328 feet. not quite 9000 sq miles its more likely the area referenced is the area of the whole image

firstly the condescending tone is totally unnecessary. secondly ..i did read it it said Cabot was the first "on record" to try not that he came up with the idea and as you state, since the region was glaciated for so long...why would anyone think to look there i would have loved to hear the pitch he made to Henry to sell the idea i wonder if he sold him a used carriage too

So your saying that the idea of the passage spontaneously came into being. And it turns out they just happened to be right? good guessing :)

To me this shows how bits of ancient knowledge survive through myth and legend. When was the last time this planet was warm enough for the N.W. passage to exist? Why and how did knowledge of this passage survive. And who were the original sailors who first made the discovery? Or are we to believe that the legends that led sailors ,only a few hundred years ago, to search for this passage were jus

What is the basis for this?. Clearly they had the knowledge to alloy. Why would it have been impossible for them to develop this knowledge on their own?

I had to know ;) So a quick web search revealed these tid bits. From wikipedia articles: Phase 2: CE 1200/1300 - 1521 Alloys became more prevalent during the second phase, as metal workers experimented with color,strength and fluidity. Formerly utilitarian assemblages transformed, with new focus placed upon metallic status objects. Further, the appearance of a copper-tin bronze alloy suggests

I didn't think so...but wanted to be certain. Thanks And I totally agree with you..History will be rewritten. The questions that beg for answers are; Why mine it if they didn't utilize it? And where did it go? Mining ,even by modern terms, is expensive and dangerous work. No one in their right mind would do it with out some sort of payoff.

Afternoon, I am new to posting here though I've followed the board off and on for years. So please excuse me if I am ignorant of what has gone before.

I'm hoping to find a source for maps showing southern California and northwestern Mexico as it would have been from 15,000 bce to 2,000. Does anyone know if such can be found? Any help is much appreciated. Lothur
