blasted through. Up in these recesses there is plenty of evidence of ancient egyptians. Many of these blocks have a primitive hieratic script that
continues on into the wall.
Sitchin claims they are a hoax - so what did they do - take the stone out, write all over it and put it back? Doubt it.
And for those who might say the writing is an obvious forgery (Sitchin and Hancock) I suggest getting some better source material than the inaccuate
sketches made by them in their books.
stop taking these pseudoscientists at face value: all they are trying to do is sell books.
Just a quick comment to this post.
It becomes necessary to respond to posts like this when proper historical knowledge is has not been taken into account.
Yes it is true that their are glyphs above the Davisons Chamber (albeit Khufu name is spelled wrong). However the complete lack of any hieroglyphics
anywhere else on the Great Pyramid must be taken into consideration when examining the motives of Colonel/General Howard-Vyse.
A man who used dynamite as an archeological tool, looked at the Great Pyramid, "as a fortress to be besieged.."
In order to understand the chalk marks found within the pyramid, we must examine the person Howard Vyse. A man under great pressure to make
discoveries as Great as his rival (Italian explorer Caviglia).
Caviglia had found inscriptions in some of the tombs around the Great Pyramid. What better way to top those finds, then to discover the Architect of
the Great Pyramid?
Most hieroglyphic experts today believe the chalk marks found in the upper chambers to be forgeries left by their discoverer!!
Howard-Vyse's motive was to overshadow his rival, renew support for his other projects, by making a more Amazing "discovery" by lying.
A fun walk-though the great pyramid should be taken by anyone who has not made the trek in person: www.thegreatpyramid.ws...
