Of course he wouldn't think it ran straight from the quarry to the pyramid top; it would be far too steep.

Just because most professionals now refuse to be pinned down in an argument doesn't mean they are willing to give up the idea that "well, we know they used some kind of ramps".

There were no ramps and no amount of backpedling and and semantics will change this simple fact.



Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
