Hi Dr. Troglodyte, Thanks for your thoughts on this. I think we need to be very diligent on how we are interpreting the evidence we see in front of us. If I want to look at the the argument you made from a scientific perspective, It is like choosing three data points in a very large span of time and then fit a linear equation to them, saying that this curve would represent the true behavior of

Thanks for your reply, eyeofhorus33. I can see your line of reasoning is very much dependent on the context already established on what these people thought and believed. I have engineering background and have little knowledge on the contents you provided. I am just starting to learn and these would be helpful. However, I have a different viewpoint based on my senses but need more research to inv

As far as I can see from photos, Tut's tomb is full of decorations. The architecture style is not similar in my opinion. How can we compare apple and orange and conclude they are from the same type?

From the source: "...It was found to be devoid of wall decoration, but its interior was lined with well-dressed masonry of Tura limestone and red Aswan quartzite. The burial chamber contained the broken remains of the king’s granite sarcophagus and canopic box, and was protected by an elaborate system of massive stone blocks and architectural techniques for concealing the royal burial’s loca

Hi all, I am in process of gathering the most up-to-date known evidence that Egyptology relies on to link the construction of pyramids at Giza to the Pharaohs in old kingdom. I would highly appreciate if anyone can help me by introducing the related sources. Many thanks

Hello Thanos, Thanks for your detailed reply. I understand the point you are making about the absence of any hard written evidence. I am a curious reader who is just looking for the truth and am absolutely making no claim about what OK could or not could not accomplish regarding the construction of pyramids, but am somehow concerned about how much speculations we can actually make on these thi

Hi Mr. Stower, I think there are controversies regarding the inventory stela but I am referring to Graham's take on this which he included in fingerprints of the god. His debate on the subject can be found here: . If the contents in that stela are actuly referring to Khufu finding the pyramids and repairing them, then it can be a good candidate for the stones carried to wadi-aljarf. I see

Hello Thanos, First of all, Please forgive me for my english as it is not my first language. Respectfully, I think the reason that Giza pyramids are subject to such a large volume of debates is itself a sign of uncertainties around the issue. If the great pyramid (and other alike pyramids) are actually built by AE civilization, then we should be able to provide some firm evidence for that.

Hi Thanos, Many thanks for your contribution to this post. The pictures are worth a thousand words! I can not wrap my head around the idea of using such small pounder stones to create marks at different angles and at that scale. If the methodology works why not trying to replicate even a small scale of such monument? We have seen such attempts that were trying to explain drills in stones using

Hi Dr. Troglodyte, Thanks for your inputs. I have serious doubts in the proposed technique with using stone pounders. As it is shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIVuLon7mT0&feature=youtu.be (between 2:25 and 5:30), this technique is less likely to create such pattern that we see on the unfinished obelisk. Additionally, why is that we only see such scoop marks on some par

I was watching the "cygnus mystery" by Andrew collins at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhgNXbahNrA where something catched my eye. Take a look at 5:50. There are scoop marks on the top of T-pillars at Gobekli Tepe which are very similar to the scoop marks on the unfinished obelisk: I checked the internet and it seems some of the pillars at gobekli tepe have such indications:

I have a question about the subject statues kept in British Musuem. According to the wiki source, all three figures are assigned to Senwosret III who was a Pharaoh ruling between 1878 and 1839 BC. I personally am not seeing the same person by looking at these statues. Here is a picture of the three statues: I could not find a source saying exactly why these statues are assumed to be the same p

Hi Lee, Thanks for all your great posts. I have been reading the messages in this board for quite a while but this is my first message here. I just realized the similarities between the palace facade shown in the pictures you posted and the one on Sphinx Stella which is interesting for me: I think this requires further attention and more research. Keep the nice work!
