No, Erdmann and Görlitz had only the permission toVISIT the paramid for 2 hours after it was closed to the public. And only the areas open to the public. They had no permit to film, or take photos, or to ente the relieving chambes.

There are no chemical analyses on the paint. The Fresenius institute told that there wsn not enough paint to analyse, and that they gave the whole thing back to the Egyptians. Görlitz and Erdman claimed in september 2013, that the analysis was complete and claimed on a congress, organised by right wing conspiracist Jan Udo Holey, that the analysis was done and that the paint was modern.

butterfly clamps were used by all builders around the world in different forms - because it's a simple idea. Yet they vary. In Kafres Valley Temple the first in Egypt were used. These were made from wood with round wooden plugs that fittet into holes. The ones in Tiwanaku were from molten copper, IIRC. The Egyptians later used many different mehthods. Prefrabricated wood, prefabricated copper, p

Again I thank you for giving me this platform. It was an experiment, and off list I got some very positive resonance.

Well, I hope you see from my question on the Mysteries-board, that there are of course "many people" still thinking that it was/is impossible the Great Pyramid.

You didn't read what i wrote. So again: There is NO TRACE of any people in Egypt capable of building with stone before about Dyn. I - not of original inhabitants nor of travelling stone masons. And again: Why SHOULD they go there? Were they contracted to move to Egypt, build the sphinx and then vanish again? Also, as Archae posted, there is a BIG difference between both sites. But I explained tha

I do not see your point. I talk about the beleives of "many people", I am not concerned about orthodoxy or alternatoves. it's what MANY PEOPLE think. Full stop. I know this because I hear it every few days in messega boards. It is the first argument you hear when discussions about pyramids begen: "Even we cannot produce them with our means, how can we even think that the Egyptians

??? I did not mention any author. I talk about "many people" - and if you are going to alternative message boards (as I do) you hear almost anytime "The Egyptians couldn't do it" and "Even we are incapable to reproduce them" - this week alone I heared these arguments in at least 5 message boards.

The first picture on the page showing the picture he mixes Senmut with Dendera - and later on he also refers to the greek zodiac of Dendera which has nothing to do with ancient Egyptian astronomy. And I see no obelisk there too - you know what an obelisk looks like?

Sorry, I promised this two days earlier, but I got hit by the flu. A large part of my book “Pyramidengeheimnisse?” deals with the problems of pyramid building – from breaking the stones in the quarries to the transport of the pyramidion to the top. The opinion of many people is, that the pyramids of Giza are not built by Egyptians. Simply because they couldn’t do it, because even we with all our

another big error quite at the beginning: He claims the oldest Obelisks stood in iunu. That's wrong, the ones found yet are from the NK. The holy benben stone stood in Iunu, but that did not look like an obelisks. The first version of obelisks we know of are the solar temples at Abusir, the first small obelisks (about man high) were from Dyn. VI at Saqqara. As I wrote: the page got it totally w

Well, the page is so faulty that it is impossible to list all the errors. It gets almost everything wront. To begin: There is no obelisk at Senmut, and the zodiac shown on the picture is from Dendera and shows a GREEK object. I told you the real meaning of Obelisks according to Egyptology and to the texts connected with and written on those things. And there is no concept of a world axis in Egy

Well, the mudbrick walls of the 1st Dyn. mastabas look like new, it is hard to believe that they are 6000 years old. There were even plaster- and color traces found on them. Since they have naturally large pores and are mixed with straw there is no salt exfoliation there. They are soft, so I guess that sand can do some damage, but in Saqqara they were buried in sand until the 1890s. About water d

No, the slabs were used inside the chamber. Stone outside was later used - in strange mixed constructions - mudbrick at the bottom, and small broken stones stacked above. Like the large Mastaba at Meidum.

Maybe to make the chamber prettier? :-) Funny: Only the mastabas of the nobles in Helwan were dressed with stone. Nowhere else, neither in Abydos nor in Saqquara was stone used in the mastabas of the same time. The stone slabs in Helwan had no static function - they simply leaned against the mudbrick walls.

As you know the only eact science is mathematics. All other sciences are always based on theories. It's simply the best thing possible. These theories are based on facts. Archaeologic theories too (I did not use "Egyptologic" because Egyptology contains philology - and that is really not a science). In Egyptology we have many archaeologig facts - and the name of A pyramid (Mr) ant the n

Well, the pyramids - at least the "Great One" - are children of Dyn. IV, there is no doubt about it. The inscriptions in the relieving champers could not have been placed there after the chambers were finished, they name Khufu with 3 different names, one of them was not even known to be a name when Vyse opened the chambers. Our host, Graham Hancock, accepts this and the consequences.

Hello Rick, This was discussed on this message board a few weeks ago, with Graham Hancock himself :-) No, Gobekli Tepe was NOT in the "vincinity" of Egypt - it was, for that time, horribly far far away. And as i stated then: Even travelling masons (for what purpose they were travelling through the moutains and deserts to carve a stone statue) must have left traces of their existence.

The first part of my book dives down into the depths of prehistoric Egypt. As many might know there are some legends about the early days of Egypt around. While people like von Daeniken claim, that arriving astronaut-gods helped the Egyptians in building their culture and the pyramids (noticeable by a sudden jump in culture), others claim, that Egypt itself was home of an earlier civilization tha

Well, it is completely irrelevant if some people of - hm, alternative touch - do not agree with the official Egyptian name of the Great pyramid - the Egyptians were pretty sure that it had this name, we have hundreds of references to that "Horizont of Khufu". Also the Greek name is clear - pyramis was a conical baked Greek bread... Science is not a democracy where we can give votes :)

Sorry, but Alford is not a serious researcher. I had several discussions with him and found very big holes in his knowledge base... I have his "Gods of the new Millenium" - very, very bad stuff, and I partially read his "Phoenix solution" - even worse stuff. I do not beleive that he has changed for the better. The Benben was always connected to the sun - it STOOD on the prime

Unfortunately the Egyptian name for the Great pyramid was "Achet Khufu" - The Horizont of Khufu. Therefore there is no basis for that speculation.

Hello! No, the obelisks had never that meaning. BTW: the second link you posted is full of errors and not a valid source. The basis seems to be the holy stone of Iunu called benben. This was not an obelisk itself. But it was called "Seat of the Gods". The first obelisks seem to have been the solar temples of the 5th dynasty in Abusir. These were strange double pyramid like buildings (

The pyramid started as a step pyramid, but with a revolutionary inside . the first 3 chamber pyramid. During the beginning of Dyn IV a religious change can be detected - Re, the sun god, became the driving force of the pantheon, and the benbenet as solar symbol emerged. Sneferu was the first king inscribing his birth name in a shem-ring, the cartouche. In my opinion (and several Egyptologists thi
