Despite Warwick's kind supportive comments, I am not at all offended.
I have written many times my appreciation for your inquisitive passion and effort you put into your musings.
The water table in 1837 was precisely measured by Col Vyse near Campbell's Tomb (unfortunate/confusing naming) approx 150ft (but Operations states it exactly in inches)
At the time of building G1 it was not higher than 100 ft below the base level of the pyramid. They excavated the SC. (without scuba gear ;-)
Petrie and others thought there was a well on the North West corner of G1, Vyse had attempted (Petrie later) to excavate but he gave up.
They had the flooding Nile nearby circa 400 -500 yards away.
Building a dam around the pyramid. Well, that completely defeats or nullifies your hypothesis of the ramp up the side contraption (other thread) Unless they built to 30ft first and the dam was truncated to give only three sides dammed.
No such evidence and debatable whether an 8ft wide wall would contain 120,000 tons of water .
Water does not run up hill to a plateau approx 200ft above sea level from a lower basin!
Was there a geyser that first overcome approx 150ft of rock from water table? Maybe but it would be at that point a trickling spring .
I know you dislike criticism.
I ought stayed way from the topic like all or most others.
Carry on please with confidence, it is funny and entertaining and it gives Cladking somewhere to vent and parade his endless crazy BS!
I am sorry for interjecting and making some light comment in your thread.
1. 1000 ft to 200 ft is not in any way a "mountain" it is a JUST little hill
2. Walls around pyramids were originally mud brick some still exist from 2nd dynasty and they do not hold could not hold water let alone the weight and pressure you imagine.
3. The Nile (or de Nile?)
PS Don't hog the joint & flask, pass it on!
