Hello ATS Folks,
Well, I certainly did not expect this particular thread to spark so much interest! Many thanks to everyone for taking the time to contribute and
making this an interesting thread.
A couple of points here that I think need to be addressed. As mentioned already by a couple of posters, you cannot place a straight, diagonal line
onto a flat projection of the Earth - bidirectional lines must bend to take account of the Earth's curviture. (This is plainly observed in Professor
Smyth's original drawing).
"They built it [the Great Pyramid] there because that is where they lived."
Such is self-evident. The point of this presentation was simply to demonstrate the validity of Smyth's original claim that the location of Giza lies
at the intersection of a very unique point on the Earth, the point where most of its landmass intersects. Nothing more, nothing less.
It is now up to each of us as individuals to decide for ourselves whether the placement of the Great Pyramid at this quite unique location was
undertaken (by the AEs) in order to intentionally "mark" this spot (perhaps as an ancient Prime Meridian).
Personally, I am of the view that the placement of the Great Pyramid at this unique Earth location was indeed intentional and related to this unique
location - I have reasons for taking this view which I am not yet in a position to publish. No doubt, however, this will continue to be debated until
the cows come home. What Ortho folks cannot, however, debunk again is Professor Smyth's original claim of the uniqueness of this Earth location i.e.
that Giza lies at the centre of the Earth's landmasses (and the reason why Professor Smyth argued for its acceptance as the world's Prime Meridian
and not Greenwich).
