Hi Scott,

By now I've had a chance to not only review your powerpoint and past postings, but the various responses to your work. I continue to think that what you have done is truly remarkable--remarkable enough for you to:

1. Realize fully what you have accomplished.

2. Accept the scientific responsibilities that come with your accomplishments.

Let's see if I have this right.

SC: As promised, here are a couple of links to my latest research which demonstrates that the Great Pyramid at Giza encodes a tilt of the Earth's axis c. 10,500BC.

RB: No, you have developed a geometric model which identifies different axes before and after c 10,500BC as measured by precission. One can interpret these axes as corresponding to a substantial change in tilt of the Earth that may have occurred at that time. The date c10,500BC has been associated by many scholars with specific events on Earth that include fire in the sky and cataclismic floods.

In effect, you have a model or theory that connects a possible specific shift in axis associated with these real world events. I think that this constitutes a real breakthrough in clarity and potential testability compared to previous, less detailed models.

Now the responsibility that comes with the accomplishment.

Your model is specific enough to be validated, both internally and externally. For internal validation, you need to identify the tolerances of your measurements, both in degrees and years--often expressed in 90% confidence intervals (+ or -).

For external validation, you need to indicate chronologies of events in various locations and best guess dates for these chronologies. One then measures the statistical association between 1. your predicted angle of tilt and precission date and 2. the location/date of these events.

I'm saying "you" here much as the Queen uses the Royal "we." It does not have to be you, Scott, personally. You can (and should) team with others to test your model externally. I suspect that others will test it even without being asked anyway!

The external validation in particular will transform your speculations into scientific facts once these associations have been established. You will not have to debate most aspects of interpretation, only improve your predictive validity. Most importantly, if the paradigm keepers in one domain of inquiry don't welcome you into their "club," others surely will. That's how you get your mainstream scientist "visa" stamped.

Regards,

Ray
