As usual you have no idea what you are talking about. Literally not a clue yet you offer your bafflingly ignorant opinions anyways.
From Coppens' article The Great Pyramid: a course in project management:
A Great Pyramid feasibility study relating to the quarrying of the stone was performed in 1978 by Technical Director Merle Booker of the Indiana Limestone Institute of America. Consisting of 33 quarries, the Institute is considered by many architects to be one of the world’s leading authorities on limestone. Using modern equipment, the study concludes: “Utilizing the entire Indiana Limestone industry’s facilities as they now stand [for 33 quarries], and figuring on tripling present average production, it would take approximately 27 years to quarry, fabricate and ship the total requirements.”
Copy and pasted several years ago from a previous version of the Wikipedia Great Pyramid article that has since been edited out. How do I know? I wrote it. I e-mailed him about it, but curiously never got a response back nor did he change it or give me credit. Oh, well.
In Robert Schoch's book, Forgotten Civilizations (p15-16) he extensively rewrites in his own words point by point, in order no less, what I wrote and edited on the Wiki Great Sphinx page which is still mostly there in its original form. In Graham's latest work Magicians of the Gods (p208-212), though to his credit he takes the seed and expands on it, it is clear to me this same section of the Sphinx article was the muse for his train of thought further hinted at by the fact on the very next page he actually quotes a Wikipedia article on p213.
What a maroon.
