From what i understand sir, Egypt is the center of the world. Even if the polar axis were to change it would still be line up with Orion reguardless.
It is the centerpoint of all landmasses on earth. So say the north pole was on on the pacific coast. It would still be the center of the world because
of its position
But if that happened our view of north and south would change. Which would.. spin Orion around from our point of view right? Making it reversed?
You're not understanding one of the points I'm making:
The stars themselves move.
Go back far enough and the Big Dipper does not look like a Big Dipper at all. Go forward in time far enough and the Big Dipper again will no longer
look like the Big Dipper (it'll look more like a Big Scooper).
Everything is in motion, the Earth, our Sun, the other stars in our galaxy, and the galaxies themselves are moving too.
Two things affect what we see in the sky when it comes to this: how close the stars are to us, and how much time we are talking about.
The closer the star, the more motion we will see in it, where as the further the star, the less motion we see in the same given amount of time.
The more time difference we look at (IE 4,000 years vs. 14,000 years) the more that motion of those stars will be apparent in our viewing of them.
14,600 years ago (that 12,500 BC as for some saying when the Great Pyramids were actually built, vs 2,600 BC) the stars that make up Orion's Belt
were not in the positions that we see today. The angle in which they line up was different.
So, if people want to say, provide evidence/proof that they were built a lot further back in time than what main stream archeology says they were
built, I'm not going to argue that as I'm no expert in that field.
However, saying that they were built that long ago AND that they were made to line up with Orion's Belt is just plain wrong as the stars for the Belt
that far back were NOT in the positions that they are in today. That IS something I can comment on as a expert in.
Stars move: Barnard's Star
is a very good example to look at because it's velocity is so
extreme, it affords us the ability to actually see a star's motion within a single person's life time.
At the same time, if someone want's to say that the Great Pyramids were built when archeologist say there were (2,600 BC), and that they were built
to represent Orion's Belt, I can't argue with that, because Orion's Belt is very close to what it looks like today back then (IE they have moved,
but your eyes won't see the difference because it's not enough time). All I can point out is that in order to truly look like Orion's Belt and the
other ruins suppose to represent the other stars in the constellation, the only problem I see is that they got the belt backwards.
So no mater what you think of Procession, it doesn't really mater because the stars themselves are moving too.
Go back far enough and those
constellations will not look the same and will be visibly different to people's eyes. And 14,000 years is actually enough to see a difference.
