You can draw a straight line from Point A to point B anywhere on the map.... What do all these lines have in common with each other?
Anyone can draw a line from stonehenge to the center of any pyramid on the planet, so I'm failing to see and significance here...

Every now and again I like to play around on Google Earth, look at the Pyramids and other Ancient monuments, to see if I can find any anomalies or anything interesting.
Let me show you what I found this time. I must stress, I don't know what (if anything) it means, it may just be coincidence but it's cool none the less.
I started with the Pyramids of Giza, drew a line from the tip of each to the adjacent one, playing around with the "ruler function":
Then I recalled another set of Pyramids, called the Saqqara Pyramids, a cluster of four (five including a collapsed one) pyramids roughly South East from the Great Pyramid:
I started drawing lines between the centres of the pyramids and then wondered what would happen if I continued the lines through off into the distance, staying on the same heading.
Here's what I found, coincidence, probably, but still weird!!!
Lets look at one of ATS's favourite locations, PARA: Untersberg - The Mystery Mountain
Through the Northern most Giza pyramid
Through the middle of the "Step" Pyramid at Saqqara
View showing line connecting all the points
Okay, I hope you're with me!? What this shows is that if you draw a line going from the Step Pyramid in the Saqqara group, through the middle of the most northern pyramid at Giza, you get a line that passes through the summit of Untersberg!
However it doesn't stop there.
Through Giza to Saqqara
Giza, through the centre of most southern Pyramid
Through the centre of the most northern Saqqara pyramid
I'd like to point out here that it's easy to do this from a high altitude, but as you can see, where the line passes through the pyramids I've zoomed in quite a lot which makes this quite remarkable!!
Line from the Greek Acropolis passing through the centre of the Step Pyramid at Saqqara
Okay, here's another one, have you ever heard of the Eruption of Thera, one of the highly likely sources of the Atlantis Myth:
Minoan eruption of Thera
The Minoan eruption of Thera, also referred to as the Thera eruption or Santorini eruption, was a major catastrophic volcanic eruption (Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) = 6 or 7, Dense-rock equivalent (DRE) = 60 km3) which is estimated to have occurred in the mid second millennium BCE. The eruption was one of the largest volcanic events on Earth in recorded history. The eruption devastated the island of Thera (also called Santorini), including the Minoan settlement at Akrotiri -- as well as communities and agricultural areas on nearby islands and on the coast of Crete.
The eruption seems to have inspired certain Greek myths and may have caused turmoil in Egypt. Additionally, it has been speculated that the Minoan eruption and the destruction of the city at Akrotiri provided the basis for or otherwise inspired Plato's story of Atlantis.
Thera can also be connected to the pyramids in this way:
From what's left of Thera
Through the centre of the great pyramid
Through the Step pyramid, this line is identical to the Acropolis line
Newgrange Passage Tomb
I'm working on some more, but I believe there is something important about these two Pyramid groups and their geometry,
I'll post other places as and when I find them.
As I said it could be coincidence, then again.........
All the best, Kiwi

This is intriguing to be sure. Star for effort. But I am having difficulty getting my head around how you are actually constructing your lines.
The earth is an approximate ball shape. While it is possible to draw lines on a ball, getting them straight isn't that easy. You are working on a curved surface here - in 3 dimensions.
Any map of the earth done on a flat 2 dimensional surface will have errors in it because you can't display a 3 dimensional object in only 2 dimensions. Look at lines of longitude and latitude on a globe and while accurate, and "straight" they curve to the eye.
So how does one know how to do this on a 2 dimensional computer simulation of a globe to get these lines between points.
I'm intrigued but a bit puzzled at the same time.

If one could get the lines to stop dead center (or flat) in any of the four sides of the great pyramid, not comming in at an angle they might have something.
