you missed off the authors summary of these ideas and the people who came up with them and for some reason only posted the section where he was putting the idea from Halleys point of view
the author (Donald E. Simanek) wrote it like that to allow the reader a glimpse into the mind of someone who in some areas was quite brilliant but in others was a hopeless case
Dr Simaneks entire website devoted to bashing pseudoscience is available here
here is his summary
Like pseudoscientists of all varieties, they carefully select those aspects of experience they wish to incorporate into their model, ignoring the vast amount of other scientific phenomena that conventional science has already successfully dealt with. They cite old, discredited, or poorly documented, observations, experiments and theories as supportive of their views. Often they wage a guerrila war against "conventional science", and characterize scientists as imperceptive or even stupid for not acknowledging their cleverness and the truth of their alternative models. They take pride in being a member of a select few, the elite, who can see things clearly.
He has no doctor’s degree in these fields. He simply is a critic who happens to enjoy the unexplained. He merely takes past articles sums them up and throw his opinion in there. So once again I will ask you. Why is Simanek’s opinion (which is all that it is) correct
I never mentioned his name. He has nothing to do with what I quoted from that site. It just happens to be the site that the information I was seeking was on.
It seems as though that the large tomb (king's chamber) in the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) is the center piece of all three pyramids
The four, so called, air shafts in Khufu's pyramid align to certain stars in the sky of his time
the three great pyramids align to the three brilliant stars in Orion's Belt.
Don't like the works of Graham Hancock

but you seem to be doing a good enough job on destroying your credibility on your own
please carry on

This section tends to focus on well rounded arguments from evidence.
Arguments from the "let's do a thought experiment" are shuffled off to Skunk Works. We don't discourage these, but this section is for discussing known history (and therefore the links.)
I can, of course, move it to Skunk Works (where I actually do NOT participate) and folks can theorize without being bothered by historical evidence to their hearts' content.
Just like the Science forum, this is the section for discusssing evidence and not speculation
So........ What's the call, folks?
Do you want to discuss evidence here in the Ancient Civ culture (which means you have to post links and discuss evidence) or do you want me to move it to Skunk Works so that you can discuss speculation?
