An interesting thought, but for crustal displacement to have occurred in the megalithic age the structures after the fact would soon be so far off the mark astronomically their original alignment would be unrecognizable, which is not the case, not to mention geographically worthless. There is no evidence they were violently removed from their original astronomical alignment and later significantl

The Ben-Ben stone is a pyramidion which comes to a point and is smooth on the sides which by mainstream dating well predates the pyramids. One has to wonder if this was the inspiration to smooth the sides of step pyramids in an effort to, if not emulate the Ben-Ben, make the whole structure congruous to it (seamless) when it was placed on top. Some suggest the Ben-Ben originates from the Sumeria

Hi John, The sudden explosion of Egyptian culture and technology which you and others have previously documented appears to coincide if not be the direct result of the arrival of the so called "Dynastic Race" of Mesopotamians in Egypt circa 3,200BC. Their period of influence seems to abruptly end at Sakkara and other than the curiously out of place palace facade architecture found in

If we take ancient cultures of the world at face value, it is unanimous they believed beings from the stars came to Earth from the heavens and created man playing a significant role in his development including the diffusing of culture and technology. These were not superstitious humanistic representations of nature from some magical nether realm, but actual flesh and blood beings from the stars.

Hi Merrell, I agree: Thanos said "So, what we have for "facts" is that the king was the most important guy so he must have the biggest tomb and there is all this peripheral funerary stuff surrounding it and there is a big stone box with lid inside.

MJT Quote:"And it all boils down to: I don't understand how the pyramids could have been tombs; therefore, they were not tombs". Hi MJT, This is close enough as saying its "just a feeling" isn't it? Or a baseless "opinion"?. This topic has been discussed several times before and your responses are relatively the same so in good conscience I can't withdraw it. Fei
