Hello ATS Folks,
Here is the ugly little question orthodox Egyptologists and scholars of ancient history simply cannot answer. It is a question that demonstrates with
startling clarity that our ancient forebears fully understood and were thoroughly familiar with the landmasses of the Earth. How do we know this?
Because they sited the most enigmatic and largest of all the pyramids in ancient Egypt almost precisely at the centre of the Earth's landmasses. For
sure, there will be some here quick to dismiss this latest pronouncement with the same old, tired argumenmts we have all heard before. So, let's
The former Astronomer Royal of Scotland, Piazzi Smyth, in his book Our Inheritance in the Great Pyramid (1880)
writes that "...proceeding
around the globe due north and due south of the Great Pyramid ... there is more earth and less sea in that meridian than in any other meridian all the
equator round." (p. 89)
The standard response from the skeptics is that the Giza location is NOT in fact the centre of the land masses, that there are other locations that
have more landmass. From Catchpenny:
Of course, the earth is a globe, not a flat projection. Smyth's meridian (in green below) crosses very little land on the other side of the
earth, while a meridian near 70° W (in red below) crosses much more land on its way round the globe. If by "meridian" Smyth means a half-circle,
then the claim's accuracy may still be disputed (it is entirely anecdotal and no mathematical proof has been offered). It appears that a meridian a
few degrees to the west (in blue below) would cross more land. Source.
On the surface it appears that there is a good case for citing these other locations as having more landmass. However, what orthodox folks fail to
recognise or highlight (and it is plainly marked in Smyth's original drawing) are the NE/SW and NW/SE landmass directions from Giza. When viewed in
this context then it becomes clear that the Giza location is indeed, as Piazzi Smyth claimed all those years ago, the centre of the Earth's land mass
(highlighted in green below).
Question: how is it even remotely possible for a technologically 'primitive' civilisation such as the Ancient Egyptians - who we are told rarely
travelled beyond their own borders - to have known this? Does this not smack of a civilisation with far more knowledge than is presently being
attributed to them? Or is it the case that what we are in fact observing here is a 'fingerprint of the Gods'?
