Well that's simple, no one responding to him so he can scream out hatred towards those that didn't believe his ideas.
He somehow believes that screaming, wailing and ranting about ramps 'hurts' those accursed Egyptologists
I'm leaving the thread so I'll make a few last comments:
Steve I commend you for putting your idea out there, documenting it etc., that is the way to do it. One note however, while your idea is possible and perhaps even plausible it lacks evidence that it was used - they might have done so but we don't know - certain far more believable than Cladking failed geyser powered funicular. The idea that ancient people would automatically do the most efficient thing is flawed modern idea.
I don't suspect we'll ever know how the AE moved rocks around for the pyramids unless we find an engineers tomb where he had it drawn on the walls - we can all dream.
Most of the time the ancients didn't do the most efficient thing. Was walking or riding on roads the most efficient way to move around the Roman Empire? No, not at all they should have used steam powered railroads - they had the technology to do so but oddly didn't. The most efficient way to stop the barbarian hordes - the use of poison gas, gunpowder and artillery - again they had all the pieces but never though of or effectively did so. When people created sailed powered ships it took to the 1850s to arrive at the epitome of arrangement for the masts, sails, ropes, hulls, etc, why not 2,500 years earlier - they used inefficient systems for centuries... why? Because people don't always use the most efficient method that is obvious to us but wasn't to them.
Adieu and everyone enjoy heartily Cladking's endless ramp rage, lol.
