Hi,

Does the Great Pyramid indicate a tilt of the Earth's polar axis c.10,500BCE?

My recent research with co-author, Gary Osborn, into this possibility has revealed some startling facts!

Here's the articles:

The Great Pyramid and the Axis of the Earth - Part 1

The Great Pyramid and the Axis of the Earth - Part 2

Enjoy.

I am happy to receive and discuss all constructive comments.

Best wishes,

Scott Creighton

Hello Mozzy,


Mozy: hey scott, good to see you bringing this out to another forum.

great info s&f.


Thanks for the S&F - appreciated!

I think these are quite significant articles, featuring entirely new discoveries about the Great Pyramid and so it's important, I think, to get this information to as wide an audience as possible.

Deny ignorance.

Thanks again.

Best wishes,

Scott Creighton

I don't think there is anyone who presently posts here at ATS who could evaluate this theory of yours. To engage those who could give opinions based on expert knowledge you would need to post it at:

The Hall of Ma'at, for Egyptological comment and Bad Astronomy for the astronomical content.

Good luck

SC: In my past experience here on ATS, I have had some very good critique of my various presentations, including from yourself and Byrd (who I believe is a moderator on Hall of Ma'at).

Alas, however, Hall of Ma'at Moderators and Owner will not allow me to make any posts on their site.

Hello Scott,

may I ask why they would suppress the information you offer?

Ah well, there is always Bad Astronomy.

Hello Hans,


Hans: Ah well, there is always Bad Astronomy


SC: Yes - Bad Astronomy is an excellent site for astronomical discussions but I'm not too sure how they would fair with the Egyptology material I present which is what the bulk of the material in these two articles is about.

Hello Sky,

Really nioe to hear from you again.


Sky: may I ask why they [Hall of Ma'at] would suppress the information you offer?


SC: I don't actually think they are supressing anything, Sky since I am perfectly free to post my work here on ATS, Hancock and other sites. I guess they just don't want what I present to be discussed on their board. I'm really not sure why. Perhaps their raison d'être of "Weighing the Evidence for Alternative History" is becoming a little too much for them these days. But at the end of the day - it's their site and they decide what they want to see on it or not.

Best wishes,

Scott Creighton

Thank you for the posts. I have just finished Mr Hancock's books "Fingerprints of the Gods" and "The Mars Mystery". He presents some very good evidence and a provocative theory on an ancient culture.

Howdy Kidflash and what would you say is the most prevasive evidence that Hancock has?

The mathematical equations and the alignments of the Great Pyramid to Orion's Belt are some of them. The buildings were built with a lot of technical and geometrical knowledge that would seem to have been a lot to acquire in a short period of time. There definitely should be more research and efforts to answer the questions that are posed to find out if there was a great civilization 10,000 to 20,000 years ago and who were these people.
I am open to these ideas, but I do find Edgar Cayce type prophecies (and other such descriptions of Atlantis) quite dubious.

just a quick question scott , if the great pyramid represents it's location on earth due to it's apex does anyone know the location of the entrances of the shafts in relation to the earths surface i.e. co-ordinates on earth .
does that make sense?
would be interesting to know the locations.

Hello Anon,

The elevations of the shafts of the Great Pyramid are very well documented. They are as follows:

King's Chamber North : 32.60*
King's Chamber South: 45.00*
Queen's Chamber North: 39.12*
Queen's Chamber South: 39.60*

Why were the Giza pyramids built?



I think the most important question pertaining to the pyramids of Giza is why they were built and in lieu of what I have been reading lately I am beginning to doubt the Egyptologists. Originally I believed that they were tombs for the Pharaohs assuming mummies and artifacts were found supporting this theory. I can't find any sources confirming that anything was ever found inside (No mummies?!) and as for the numerous hieroglyphs detailing Egyptian construction do any of them specifically pertain to the building of the Giza pyramids? Is there any physical evidence indicating that they were built as tombs and if not where did the pyramid tomb theory come from?

I suppose the pyramids could have been built as tombs and because of this I hesitate...but never the less the burden of proof is on those proposing any theory as to why they were built. It is one thing if there is physical evidence proving they were tombs for the Pharaohs but something completely different if there is not. However, to stay focused on the topic I would like to point out that attempting to prove what the Great Pyramids were not built for is futile and we should not limit ourselves by assuming that the builders were less intelligent or less advanced then we are today.

After reading Secrets of the Great Pyramids by Peter Tompkins it becomes evident to me that the pyramids show a relative perspective to geometry, astronomy and time. A theory by Richard A. Proctor (the Great Pyramid) is presented in Tompkins' book that the great pyramid was an astronomical observatory and this seems to closely relate to some of the work you have been doing.

A crucial point has to do with the idea that the pyramid of Khufu was truncated around the height of the King's chamber so the grand gallery, air shafts in the Queens chamber and the descending shaft/entrance could be used for astronomical alignments. With the aid of reflecting devices everything could be observed by one person from a single position, probably from the bottom of the grand gallery.

This gets really interesting with your theory on the purpose for the air shafts in the Kings chamber and the reason why the Queen's chamber air shafts are blocked. It might be possible that the tilting of the Earths axis has changed multiple times and evidence proving this can be found if we know how and where to look for it.
