Total fail
you don't understand Egyptian measurements
you don't understand Egyptian culture
you don't understand Egyptian architecture
you don't understand why your comment above is complete crap
try to understand, we'd all like you to smell the coffee at some point

Light
The speed of light (at 299,792.458km/s) is encoded in the latitude of the great Pyramid. At its center the pyramid is 29.9792º north of the equator . The statistical chance for the Great Pyramid to be centered on the latitude of the Speed of Light is almost beyond reason of doubt. It’s so close that if you go a few feet up or down off of the center of the great Pyramid the equality of the latitude with the speed of light is lost. The margin of error is less than 0.01%.
The meter itself is based on the circumference of the earth. We define it by dividing the polar circumference (through Paris) into 40,000,000 meter units. The second is defined as the length of a day divided into 86,400 units of time.
There is good reason to believe that the Great Pyramid’s architect knew the radius of the earth as well. To make my point I will divide the width of the great Pyramid (756 feet) into 360 units which I will call cubits. The radius of the earth contains 10.000.000 of these cubits to within a margin of 0.4-0.5%. I believe this summarily dismisses any other speculation about what kind of cubit the Great Pyramid builder’s architect used.
Additionally the architect of the Great Pyramid did not seem to find it arbitrary to find yet a third measure (besides the meter and cubit) by which to measure the earth, for reasons I don’t presently fathom. The Great Pyramid has a slope angle of approximately 51 Degrees, 50 Arc Minutes and 40 Arc Seconds. These add up to about 186,640 arc seconds (51*3600 + 50*60 + 40). The speed of light as measured in miles per second is approximately 186624 Miles per second. The difference is less than 0.02%.
I have already shown that the Speed of Light is encoded in both meters per second (in its latitude) and miles per second (in the slope angle). There is another way in which the pyramid encodes the number of light and why shouldn´t it? It was the king of all pyramids in all the earth and probably shone the brightest. The circumference of the earth, divided by the circumference of the great pyramid is ~43,460. The sun has a radius of 432,687 miles. The difference (besides a decimal point) is 0.4%. The difference would be even smaller if the pyramids had not been defaced.
It is worthy to note that we have divided our day into 43,200 * 2 seconds. This is more than logical as the sun and its light is what gives us our sense of time.
Another worthy thing to note is that the speed of light can be derived from 432 * 432.
432 * 432 is only 0.18% higher than the currently accepted measure of the speed of light at 186,282.397 Miles/s. Is it any wonder people marvel at the Great Pyramid?
Finally there is another way in which the speed of light was encoded in the Great Pyramid. Draw two circles on the base of the pyramid. One circle touching the edges, the other touching the corners. Subtract the circumference of the smaller circle from the circumference of the bigger circle. The result is about 299.8173 meters. This is less than 0.009% off of our current speed of light.
All this goes to show that the Architect of the Great Pyramid knew the following facts or concepts:
The Speed of Light in meters and miles per second.
The Circumference and radius of the Earth and the roundness of the earth.
The definition of the Meter, Cubit, Mile and Second.
The size of the Sun
To measure the Circle in 360º and 60 arc minutes and 60 arc seconds. Just a nice tid-bit to add here.

In order to make the connection we have to actively include various options that fit the original claim, and exclude the many that doesn't, even though they are still fully valid options. A matching sequence of five digits is not particularly strange or extraordinary. People have won the lottery matching far longer sequences than just five digits. Sometimes numbers simply match up without any connection whatsoever. So because this argument require some forcing we can conclude that this is likely nothing but a coincidence.

archaeologists/historians always seem to error on the side of younger, and they hold to it even when evidence points to much older...

Are you simply talking here, or can you provide specific examples of this? Please indicate exactly what evidence you believe "points to much older" dates than the mainstream proposes.

I know your opinion about his theory from another thread, but it's interesting how he explains the erosion patterns on the sphinx enclosure in relation to the possible construction date (from a geological point of view).

What's interesting is that pretty much every other Geologist on seeing the same erosion said it was clearly wind and salt crystallization combined with haloclasty.

The Redating of the Great Sphinx could be something to look into then. Conservative estimate: 7.500 years old, possibly even 10.000-12.000 years (according to R. Schoch).

I will add "knowing how science works" to the list of things you have shown you don't understand in this thread
His claims have never been proven, they don't need to be debunked
"The work of Schoch and West on the Sphinx is highly flawed. For one thing they ignored the severe local atmospheric industrial pollution in the last century which has severely damaged the Giza monuments and fast, too. This is well known by the Egyptologists. I won't get in to that story, you probably are up to date on their work and the many thorough refutations from well-qualified people."
