I wouldn't estimate over about a 55% probability it shows a five step pyramid. This is a very low confidence
level and I didn't mean to imply that the evidence is very strong. However I know a great deal more than just
the information on the scan which includes evidence that other great pyramids are step pyramids as well s
professional opinion that this and others are stepped. My opinion is also influence by the knowledge that
ramps are highly improbable due to the lack of evidence for them and their inefficiency. Basically, when I
put all this evidence together it comes up a better than 95% probability that it's a step pyramid and most pro-
bably a five step pyramid.
Until it is actually studied and the tests are run it is perfectly legitimate to say "it mustta been a five step pyra-
mid" because they had to lift the stones one step at a time. This is the reality now even though few realize
the playing field has changed and the ball is still in Egyptology's court. Logic and evidence transcend opin-
ion and assumptions and the logic and evidence flies in the face of ramps whether it's widely understood
yet or not.
Yet you continue to present it as if it has, therein lies the problem.
You've done it so often you've effectively negated your own attempt at back-pedalling. Sorry, but this can't be taken seriously.
No, they didn't "have" to do anything. That they could (theoretically) have done it that way is just one of several possibilities. And since you've shown no actual, verified evidence for the existance of a geyser on the Giza Plateau it's all a moot point. But enough of taking this thread off topic to make it another attempt at promoting your unevidenced theory.
