The sacred Jewish inch (explained on Page I or in Feb. 1995 After Dark issue) has meaning beyond measurement of distances. The Bible often employs substitutions, such as days for years. If we consider the representation of years by inches, the Pyramid takes on an entirely new meaning. As a means to record time, the Pyramid used stone inches to measure time in years, where one inch equals one year.
From the beginning of the Ascending Passage to the beginning of the Main Gallery is 1,485 inches. If 1,584 is added to the date of the exodus of the Jews from Egypt (start of the Ascending Passage), the result (if fractions of an inch are taken into account) is April 3, 33 A.D., the crucifixion of Christ and the start of the Main Gallery.
For the Great Pyramid to be perfectly aligned with the four cardinal points on the compass means that the builder either had some way of determining directions or that neither the Egyptians nor any human designed it. Other dimensions of the Great Pyramid show that it was literally impossible for Egyptians or any other humans to have designed or built it.
The error from true north is about 1/12 of a degree and what is even more astounding is that this orientation was done without a compass, which was not invented until the 1500 years after the Messiah's birth. Now you may wonder if the perfect aligning to the four points of the compass was a coincidence or was this purposed and planned in the design. Some believe that the pyramid was built about 4000 years before the birth of the Messiah.

You have avoided my question on how the Egyptians could know the diameter of the earth.

Odium, go do some reading, you have not provided any "FACTS" whatsoever to prove anything.
I have given you numbers that appear in the Pyramid that confirm my position.
Here is a link that provides some of the numbers, there are many more sites that confirm these numbers, do some reading before you run off your mouth without knowledge.

The Great Pyramid is located in the center of all the landmasses (see diagram on p. 31). Many pyramidologists believe that the meridian line running north and south on the globe passing through the Pyramid (31 degree East of Greenwich) should be the zero line of the whole world. By drawing a horizontal line through the pyramid one can see the pyramid is the center of the landmasses. Again one sees that the architect of the Pyramid had to know the location in advance and it has only been in the last 100 years that men have had these capabilities.

Let's come to the famous "center of the landmasses" the great pyramid should be built at.
"The parallel of longitude passing through the great pyramid is the longest possible parallel passing over ground at all. The parallel of latitude passing through the center of the pyramid is the longest possible over land, too. So the pyramid is located right in the gravity center of all land masses on Earth."
To demonstrate this, you will be shown maps like the one on the left. But again you only need a map and some time to see that this is wrong, too. The longest possible parallel of longitude runs about 250 kilometers west of Giza, right through the Libyan desert. It runs more than 2000 kilometers longer over land than the one through Giza.
Also, the longest parallel of latitude over land goes not through Giza. At 50 deg. north I found one running more than 16000 kilometers over land. Compared with the 14000 km of the one through Giza, it is again 2000 kilometers longer. And if I construct the "gravity center of the continents" after the definition given above, the true center must be in the Ukraine, some kilometers west from Kiev. This, too, can be checked with a good map!

Smyth further claims that "on carefully summing up the areas of all the dry land habitable by man all the wide world over, the centre of the whole falls within the Great Pyramid's special territory of Lower Egypt." (p. 89) The earth's landmass is distributed over a sphere, not a plane. Thus, determining "center point" of the landmasses -- and there would of necessity be more than one such center point as the lines wrapped around the globe to the other side -- would be a complex affair based on the area of each continent and every little island in the seas. That these points legitimately exist at all is questionable.
According to Professor Piazzi Smyth, multiplying the height of the Pyramid's 35th layer by 10 derives the distance of the earth from the sun.

What about Jeffery's claim that "height of the pyramid is precisely one billionth the distance of the earth from the sun?" The height of the Great Pyramid is 485 feet:
Height of the pyramid times one billion = 91,856,061 miles
Distance of the earth from the sun = 92,960,000 miles
Okay, so what's a million miles or so? Astronomically, the numbers may be close, but is this similarity meaningful, or even interesting?
The base unit of measurement in the Pyramid's is 25.052 inches. The Pryamid's inch is 1.0025 of our regular inch. Each side of its base is 365.2422 cubits...
The number of days in a century (100 years) is 36,524 days and corresponds to the total inches valued in the Pyramid's perimeter.
The number Pi is the mathematical constant 3.1415, with the ratio of the diameter to the distance around the circle, called the circumference. In the pyramid it is the ratio of the height to twice the length of the base.
Source: Catchpenny site, linked above.
To begin with, if you divide the base of the pyramid by exactly twice the height, and do not round off, you don't get pi, you get 3.1417254. A small difference, but essential. Further, a disciple of Piazzi Smyth, Flinders Petrie, who also measured Stonehenge, reports that one day he caught the master chipping at a granite wall of the royal antechamber, to make his sums work out
In addition, the cubit dimension of the inner chamber of the Temple, the Holy of Holies, are precisely identical in size to the King's Chamber in the Pyramid and the same volume as the molten sea of water on the Temple Mount as prepared by King Solomon. Since the Pyramid was built and sealed long before the days of Moses, when he built the Ark and the Holy of Holies, and had remained sealed for over twenty-five centuries until the ninth century after Christ, there is no natural explanation for the phenomenon of both structures having identical volume measurements. The coffer in the pyramid contains exact measurements representing tremendous scientific knowledge as does the entire Great Pyramid.
Is this information correct? Most readers of Jeffrey's book lack either the resources or the ambition to check out his data. Many people take such claims on faith, but let's check (the linear dimensions are given in inches and the volume in cubic inches):
Description Width Height Length Volume
The Ark 27.0 27.0 45.0 32,805
Coffer (inner) 26.8 34.4 78.1 72,002
Coffer (outer) 38.5 41.3 89.6 142,468
Laver* 56,115
*Described in I Kings 7:38 (one bath equals 6.073 gallons).
The Holy of Holies in the Temple measured 20 cubits by 20 cubits by 20 cubits (I Kings 6:20). Moses did not build his Holy of Holies in a Temple as Jeffrey implies, but in his Tabernacle (Moses' Holy of Holies measured 10 cubits by 10 cubits by 10 cubits).
Description Width Height Length Volume
Holy of Holies (Temple) 360 360 360 46,656,000
Holy of Holies (Tabernacle) 180 180 180 5,832,000
King's Chamber 206 229 412 19,435,688
The dimensions for the Holy of Holies and the King's Chamber are far from being "precisely identical" as Jeffrey asserts.
