Hi Dennis

Fascinating calculations which suggest intelligent design but were the measurements of inch, foot and mile known to the Ancient Egyptians?

If not, then can one not argue that the application of such measurements to produce what are indeed startling matches to the Earth's diameter and Polar circumference are simply coincidental?

I ask in earnest because I don't know and the bit I am unable to get my head around is this: whoever built the Giza pyramids, whenever they built them and for whatever purpose, why would the application of their own measurments not bring about the results you are proposing?
