I like the cut of your verbal jib, so I will turn you on to a document you might enjoy finding, called the Quattor Coronatorum, a Masonic document from the 1600's, a handbook, actually, for Freemasonry, which traces the history of the Masons from the Flood, among other things. A footnote on p. 100, to a mention of the Great Pyramids of Egypt's construction, quoting D. Siculus reads in part:
"Others call them artificial Stones made on the spot."
This above is actually paraphrased from Lacius Curtius' salvage of the Histories of Diodorus Siculus, that have come down to us here:
Thanks for the info, I'll take a look at that link and reply after I read it later. BTW- One question just off the top of my head: I've read a little about that theory before and was wondering: How does it explain the different sized blocks? And here's another thought: considering the source, perhaps that was one of the leading theories of the Roman engineers, as after moving some of those obelisks back to Rome they had to be discussing/theorizing amongst themselves about how on earth the Egyptians could have made the Great Pyramids, just like many of our engineers do today.
