Just thought I'd add to the discussion with an extract from a book I read recently about th origins of the 'Great Pyramid' and in no other words
than Khufu himself, the 'builder' of the pyramid.
"Live Horus Mezdau;
(To) King (of) Egypt, Khufu, is given life!!
He founded the house of Isis
Mistress of the pyramid,
Beside the house of the sphinx"
This is off the 'Inventory Stela' which now resides in the Cairo museum, and clearly states that the Pyramids and the sphinx currently stood when
Khufu reigned. Its the perspective you have chosen that dictates your beliefs, so I know people will have varying views on this, so I'm not going to
mention the author at the moment, but I'm sure most people on ATS will know the answer anyway.
Some things I remember that I found interested when I read this, Ill only briefly cover them now, but hopefully they may raise questions that will
help us to prove the case of Egyptology and ,I believe archeology in general, being a suppressed field.
I think this was mentioned earlier, but i remember reading that the sphinx and the '3 great pyramids' all have sustained 'heavy water damage'. Now
an explanation I saw a while back states this is due to flooding from the Nile, but that doesn't explain how the water damage 'drowns' the entire
area, so I am inclined to believe a 'flood' of some kind, maybe even 'the Great flood'?
Another point i found interesting was that Nowhere in the 3 pyramids is there any 'carved' hieroglyphs anywhere, except for some 'builders
markings' found above (the kings burial chamber i think?), unlike all pyramids 'before' and after, which are severly adorned. (I won't go into the
builders markings now)
In no pyramid since, or 'before' has there been any ascending passage(great pyramid only), which was 'discovered' in recent history. Only the
descending passage and the rooms there of. This leads ME to believe that is because it was not known of in antiquity, as they had not built it, but
also then dictates that they had to be copying off the 3 'original' pyramids in there design of the latter. Which leads me onto my next point...
The pyramids that stood 'before' the great pyramids were built as step pyramids, and covered in a lime stone casing. Obviously a fore runner to the
GREAT PYRAMIDS? All pyramids built for many centuries after all showed this casing, as well as not being able to 'emulate' the 53 degree angle of
the 'original', but opted for a structurally safer 42 degree's.
These are from what I can remember, so it's from memory, and may have a few discrepencies. Also note that the 'inventory stela' has been claimed a
forgery by a cult from a time after the pyramids were built.
