Cladking.."It has never been shown that it could be possible to build the great pyramids with ramps. "

but that is not teh subject of this thread

"There is at least one refutatrion of the possibility of building them with ramps and you'll love this; by a qualified engineer. (and no I can't cite it). "

then why mention it at all?


"There's no evidence that ramps were actually used to raise stones on the pyramids"

or not used

" and no evidence in the culture that ramps were used. "

That is Completely INCORRECT!!!!

"Ramp proponents simply believe ramps were used and showing where they didn't exist in space will have has much effect as showing they never existed. "

it is an insult to imply that anyone who does say "I think they could have used ramps" is not basing that conclusion on their understanding of the eivdcen rather than belief

"If there had been a ramp it really could have been anywhere at all other than right over the quarry. Indeed, they could have even put it over the quarry since most of the stone was used early before the ramp was very long. "

finally something that actually adresses the topic of the thread!

"The place to look for a quarry in the real world would be at the end of the ramp but this doesn't fit the evidence just as ramps don't fit the evidence. All the assumption in the world won't change the facts. And all the believing won't either. "

Assumption?

Belief?

there's only one person in this exchange who is speaking from conviction....and it ain't myself.
