> This isn't complex. All you need is a water line.
What? Do you mean passing buckets of water.
This is an efficient means of passing water uphill but it's a long way to the river and you'll still need more than a hundred men to flood it and stay ahead of evaporation and loss through seepage. You need toget the empty buckets back to the river.
I don't really understand the Egyptological penchant of just throwing men at a problem. If it takes 10,000 man hours to build some simple thing then Egyptologists justr throw men at it. They throw men around like modern businesses hurl money about. Just kreep throwing men and money until the problem is solved. It doesn't matter that tens of thousands of men have already been thrown at ramps and thousands more at polishing stone. Just like business can apply to government for more money Egyptologists apply to the king for ever more men. If there are too many men for the workmen's village just kick them out to live on Escher's ramps.
Where do we draw the line? At what point do Egyptologists throw in the towel and admit there weren't enough people in Egypt for all the work? It simply doesn't matter that ramps are debunked and if they understood the debunkment they'd just take the surplus labor and apply them to passing buckets of water!
Reality just doesn't work this way. I agree they probably used water but the very first step should be to prove they used water by showing the pavem4ent follows the curve of the earth. After that we can discuss how the water goit there and why there is water erosion in canals that lead DOWNHILL from the pavement.
Egyptology always puts the cart before the horse. Sure they couldda used a bucket brigade but first we need to know there's any evidence they used water at all.
Instead of facts and logic we get conclusions and assumptions.
I'llbet it will be years before they look for copper hydroxide north of the pyramid. This whole thing could be done in mere weeks anbd they've spend 150 years on it and counting.
