EN: A Personal Note: PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULDN'T THROW STONES

SC: I am not entirely certain why you should be saying this?

First of all I am not "throwing stones" - I am asking legitimate questions of your theory which is what GHMB AoM is all about.

Secondly, I have learned that no one can be absolutely certain when presenting measures and will be immediately challenged if presenting absolute figures hence why I use terms such as "almost exactly" or "almost precisely" to invoke the "margin of error". There is nothing wrong in this. But I am not the one advocating that Giza represents a "measuring system" in which case one would have expected a much higher degree of accuracy in what was laid down in order that the measuring system be recoverable.

Thirdly, we are not actually here to discuss 'The Gravity Cubit'. This was raised in repsonse to the idea that the ancients knew and could measure the speed of light. The AE cubit length can be determined using a method that is much simpler and more importantly, would have been far more accessible to ancient people than would the speed of light or the length of 1 hz. Again, applying Occam's Razor, I would be inclined towards the simpler method.

Finally, invoking the maxim that "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence", what evidence is there that proves the ancients understood the speed of light and the length of 1 hz and what evidence is there that shows how they had actually determined these values BEFORE building Giza?

Kind regards,

SC
