Sorry guys having problems with the quote function
1. The purpose of great Pyramids still unknown.
Hans: The guys who built them, the Egyptians built them as tombs
2. How they were built still unknown.
Hans: We know a great deal about with what they were built but we don't know the exact methodology, we know how the quarries worked and we know some
aspects of how they moved and fitted them. The rest is a mystery.
3. Architecturally, nothing similar before and after them. No purpose revealed in their architecture. Human architecture always has some utilizing
Hans: They developed pyramid building up over 3 generations, peaked at the Giza ones (they probably used to many resources) and then built less
impressive ones later on
4. Documentation, almost none. For a huge project like that, incredible.
Hans: Ah it was 4,500 years ago, how much documentation would you expect them to have? Think ancients not modern concepts of 'paperwork'
5. Buried bodies in great Pyramids: placed later.
Hans: Possibly the remains in Sneferu and elsewhere could be secondary burials - but why put sacrophagus in them? Why is the hieroglyph for tomb a
pyramid with a mortuary wall around it?
6. Transporting those blocks on papyrus rafts from the opposite bank of the Nile, there should be huge number of blocks at the bottom of the river
from those rafts that fell apart. Did anyone look for that?
Hans: I don't know if anyone has done that, but as they know the quarry locations and where they came to rest I'm not sure what finding them would
7. Coordinating 25.000 workers on such a gigantic construction site is extremely difficult.
Hans: Yes, and yet they did it. If you get organized you can do it. As was proved numerous times in later history-note the Chinese efforts.
8. Lack of written evidence and mentioning of great pyramids: they simply do not fit into the belief system. They are a foreign body.
Hans: Sorry but you seem to know nothing about Egyptian religion, they fit completely. I can only suggest you read up on that religion - or ask Byrd
who knows it very well.
9, They could have been built as a place for pilgrims to come, but where is the evidence.
Hans: Yes they did have that very secondary function and were built in necropolis with large complex structures of tombs and temples around them.
10. Even as a bank of knowledge they are still useless, there is still so much nuclear about them. They were never used as universities of this kind.
Hans: Don't quite understand your point here.
Howdy Photon Effect
You are incorrect, I sent you to the Hall of Ma'at because you insisted everything I said or pointed to was wrong. Denialism is hard to debate. Did
you take your concerns to the Hall of Ma'at and ask them? There are Egyptologist there who might be able to answer your deep concerns with greater
clarity. What was the result of these discussions?
You are concerned about the location of where the samples were taken. If I remember correctly you refused to make the effort to find the original
report - did you do so? In it is a list of were the samples were taken - have you seen this list?
The samples found at or near the very top tended to be older, MUCH OLDER.. thats weird.
Welll dang quote working now..
Yes you do seem fixated on those few dates. How do you explain them again since you reject all other explanations?
I suggest you get to ARE and ask them why they ran these tests.
There were plenty of anomalous results ( even in the 2nd test) that got lost in the average
Ah, Proton the average is what you are seeking, its the whole point of the methodology. I know you refuse to understand or believe that but then that
is the beauty of your position.
guess what Hawass didn't find it necessary to date it... wonder why that is?
Puting on the evil conspriacy hat......well why not just 'date' them and come back with the date they want? The same applies to the C14, since you
think they are hidding stuff why didn't they just put out the dates they wanted - why include unusual dates? So, so clever these conspiracy
masters....joking aside. I have no idea - did you ask the Egyptologists?
