What is this, more inviting cladking to talk about ramps so the same certain people can complain when he does?
Well, try not to ask as if it must have never happened if Steve doesn't happen to know the answer. It obviously did happen, and for those of us allergic to aliens, I'm sure there must be a simple, rational explanation?
Perhaps this is where murals of many people pulling weight on sleds with something being poured beneath the rails as if to expedite transport comes into the picture?
Don't tell me the orthodox view here is so desperate for the illusion of a win that they're going to forsake orthodoxy now?
If you ask me, the page from Lehner's TCP probably should be considered an embarrassment to Egyptology. I'm not going to count how many preposterous ramp theories are all gathered together on that page from section on how the pyramids were built, but obviously most of them are likely to be wrong.
Silly me, I simply cannot see the point of dragging a stone around a corner on a ramp for the sixteenth time to get it to the top or building a ramp whose volume is an absurdly large fraction of that of the whole pyramid.
I think about all you are doing by pointing out further difficulties in moving material around is highlighting just how important every labor-saving maneuver that cladking and Steve can come up with really is.
