You forgot that its a plural, there are inscriptions. No hieroglyphs?? Then how are they written?
I forgot that you were here han, I have to break it down a little bit for you to comprehend.
What I meant by hieroglyphs is the carved permenant variety found around egypt and not the magic marker variety found above the kings chamber. I was
going more for •The Egyptian picture language. From the Greek word meaning "sacred carving".
This picture is of the only hieroglyphs found at the great pyramid. Too bad its only on the outside.
As far as the 'hieroglyphs' above the kings chamber was written in ink or something. Like a magic marker.
Within its walls no hieroglyph proclaims the name of the architect and no cartouche celebrates the life of the pharoah for whom it was built. When
the caliph Mamum forced his way in over a thousand years ago, he found no record of who had built the massive structure. Not in the Subterranean
Chamber, nor the so-called Queen's Chamber or even in the much-vaunted King's Chamber. Not until 1837 did any marking or identifier turn up within
the pyramid's walls, and only then deep inside the secret relieving chambers which keep the pyramid's bulk from crushing the flat roof of the
King's Chamber. Many alternative researchers believe that these marks were faked to bolster the traditional identification of Khufu with the Great
Pyramid. The first relieving chamber came to light in the 18th century, as Martin Stower says in Forging the Pharoah's Name
The four remaining compartments were discovered by Colonel Howard Vyse, and his assistants, in 1837; ... they had been sealed since the pyramid was
built, and were reached only by tunnelling; this was done by hired quarrymen, using gunpowder."
Some scholars and intellects argues that they were forged by Vyse and his assistants in the hope of gaining fame and fortune. He claims that the
hieroglyphs are ungrammatical and misspelt (with the sign for 'ra', the supreme god of Egypt, being written instead of 'kh'), that the cursive
script in which they were written dates from a later era, and that they were copied (complete with mistakes) from standard contemporary works on
hieroglyphics. This argument has been repeated by several other writers, including Graham Hancock (though he has since rejected the forgery theory),
Eric von Däniken, and Colin Wilson."
And to han. I didnt not live in those time and neither did you so of course alot of this discussion is speculation built on evidence that we have at
this time. Dont let your hatred for Jesus or a greater power cloud your sense of reason and intellect.
