I'll put in the time to find out. please understand i entered this realm to debunk some of the wild theories out there...even my own when ifirst started. And, do not take any offense to this, however I have had to prove the AE built the structure within my re-search before i was going to exhaust all avenues of re-search strictly on the AE; since what others were writing conveyed there was some ancient culture prior that built the GP.
I believe there is enough correlating data to begin to solidfy and show the AE as the builders.
...obviously, your probably thinking the relieving chamber cartouches and shaft chisel marks were enough.... but, i had to put in the time and see for myself...
there are two things i would like to see from orthodox to put this to bed.
Scott Creighton brought up an interesting observation regarding a long piece of lumber within the GP that appears would have to have been placed during construction. If true... can't we carbon date it and be done with it.
Second if the first bares zero fruit, wouldbe to test the gypsum within the interior of the structure. The exterior testing dates showing a wide range of some 400+ years is fuel to make the case that it was a repair job versus part of the initial construction.
I believe those two points could end the squabble.
Furthermore, I still think there exists the possibility that we have misinterpreted some of the writings and or hieroglyphs etc. But, I will put in the time to expand my background knowledge of the actual culture prior to any speculation.
thank you for your time Warwick. much appreciated.
