Yes I guess do have a warped sense of humour, and people on here can easily take it the wrong way and have; although all joking aside, I must say I've enjoyed most of the posts this month, and yours - especially your views on the 23.5* finds. There was much there that I found amusing, but I have taken note on some of the points you raised and for good reason.
"Hmm, this smacks of a 'don't ask questions until you have read the book' attitude."
Well no, it wasn't meant that way.
"I'm about half way through 'The Giza Prophecy' and almost every page so far has had me asking questions to which I have yet to find answers - and this despite this thread and similar on the GHMB."
Well its a good thing that it has you thinking and asking questions. None of us have ALL the answers.
"Scott has indeed given an answer to each of my questions so far, but often there’s a marked difference between ‘an answer’ and ‘the answer’."
Yes understand that; you can't please everyone.
"There is absolutely no doubting that there is a very striking similarity between the layout of Orion's Belt and the layout of Giza pyramids 1, 2 and 3.
However, there is no clear evidence (and certainly none appears in the first half of your and Scott's book) for this phenomenon being the deliberate product of a single pan-generational plan at Giza.
Also, it occurs to me that a scaled plan of the layout of the Giza pyramids could have been created without recourse to the geometry and arithmetic (i.e. the ‘Orion Geostellar Fingerprint’) that Scott and you claim the Giza pyramids’ builders used.
All it needed was a good eye, a clear night sky, and an ability to draw a fair copy of a simple natural pattern made up of three dots/stars.
However, getting the pattern off the papyrus page and onto the Giza Plateau was another matter, and one that in terms of the uncertain skills of the Giza surveyors troubles me."
OK, I see what you're saying, but I do think Scott has demonstrated quite simply and logically how it could have been done and the layout of the pyramids at Giza, their shapes (G3), and the ratios of the bases, all conform to it and is what you would expect to find.
"You note wrongly, Gary.
My hypothesis on the planning of the entire Great Pyramid will only ever be sent out as a free PDF document (assuming a) I get to finish it – I have procrastination down to a fine art - and b) somebody wants to read it) – fame and fortune appeals to me not a jot."
Ok. And as for your last part: I think it can be more stressful than its worth at times.
"Having said that, if my hypothesis leads to the discovery of Khufu’s actual and fully intact tomb (it’s nice to dream…) , then I wouldn’t object to being given the death mask and a handful of jewels that I can then flog to the British Museum and then buy a new Home Entertainment System (nothing too ostentatious , naturally)."
Best wishes MJ,
