Right, so the C14 dates them then; by way of organic matter found embedded on the outside of the pyramids? Do you know off the top of your head if any organic material from inside was tested?
PE: Right the 1984 test wasn't wrong. What I don't know for sure yet is if the same samples that were tested in 1984 were tested again in 1995. Would you know?
PE: I'd be lying if I said I knew what you were talking about here. But I will be sure to read everyone of those 33 pages. Thank you for the reference.
I plotted the date of 3809 bc (a c14 result from a test on the GP) on that chart and it hits the curve at about 4000 bc on the dendro-age axis? Am I reading that right? Also could you tell me if this is a conversion chart of some sort? And how to read it correctly?

On a side note, did the link I posted the other day on the subject of the Tomb of Osiris help you any?

YES everyone in Egyptology, archaeology and associated sciences is aware of this data, the reports can be read by anyone, anywhere. There are no hidden secrets, unknown codes or anything else in those reports.
Huh? Which information has been in the public domain for over 20 years? Aren't we talking about the dating? So yeah, the 1st round of results have been out that long but the not the 2nd round...
The old wood problem is a part of what I'm talking about here. But that's ok Hanslune, don't have an aneurysm trying to figure out what Im trying to address here. I really don't think that I've been that unclear.
My basic point in all of this is that it's unreliable data which is used as hard evidence by conventional egyptology.
You said yourself that the old wood problem is one of the puzzles of ancient egypt...
And the old wood problem directly relates to the dating, does it not? Even Mark Lehner seems to acknowledge the irregularities and the old wood problem on his AERA site.
If you say so Hans, but NO this data can't be read anywhere or by anyone.
Wait, have you seen and read thru all the data yourself? I've assumed that you have...

Mythology turned out to be scientifically accurate
I trained as a Polynesian/Mayan archaeologist but worked in bronze age ME for awhile before switching to another career. I have kept my hand in as an amateur during my years in the ME. My specialization was in site survey and lithics (primarily the conversion of hunting weapons to war weapons.)
Unless they've tested EVERY (and I mean every) piece of organic material that could be found in and around those pyramids, then how are we to know that they are testing an equally distributed sampling?

Sky have you read Campbell's transformation of myth through time? You might find it enlightening.
