What would that "main function" be, requiring such an alignment?
Even Bauval and Hancock had admitted they don't dispute the dates of pyramid construction at Giza (circa 4th dynasty, 2,500 BC), so for them to keep
their theory alive they contend that the builders kept to a schema laid out some 8,000 years earlier, from 10,500 BC. That's an awful long time to
keep to a plan when everything else from this previous civilization vanished into dust, not leaving a single trace of it's existence. The 'plan'
really falls apart when you consider that when this supposed alignment occurred in 10,500 BC, the sun was in the house of Virgo, not Leo, so what then
was the Sphinx looking at? And shouldn't the sphinx have been a virgin then? How about the fact that Egyptians weren't privy to Greco-Roman
astrological symbols (loosely based on Sumerian astrology), at any point in their history prior to the rule of the Ptolemy's? It's a stretch to get
the Giza plateau to match with Orion, which it at least does resemble, but I don't see it at all with the Chinese pyramids.
I agree, I think there is something about all these pyramid sets being somewhat similar, yet not exactly similar. But I believe they should be studied
without the pressure of matching up to any western or eastern interpretation of constellations first. There will be more to learn this way than
constantly trying to fit the square peg of pyramid alignment into the round hole of the orion constellation. Find the function first, and then see if
it has anything to do with the stars.
There is something else about them we don't understand yet. I appreciate Bauval and Hancock & others bringing them together to be studied
comparatively as a type of building phenomena across cultures, but I think we can move past the cosmos bit for a while now, although that part does
I mean I can see inaccuracies between them and the three stars in Orion with my own eyes in these pics, let alone without measuring exact angles. And
I know there is another party out there who claims that the Egyptian pyramids align with Cygnus, not Orion, so again, more red herrings.
There are more interesting aspects to the other structures around them, such as aligned causeways, lesser pyramids, underground tunnels, and places
where the dead have been embalmed or sacrificed. And there have been some threads on these out there, but not enough. If effort is made to compare
these other features with the pyramids holistically, and not just to extract the 3 main pyramids and concentrate on them as if they were seperate from
their surroundings, more should be revealed.
