I can agree with that. I doubt we have the same train of thought, but I do agree with the wording.

This is true. Skeptics tend to dismiss nonsense, although I do not understand why that is taken so harshly by the ignorant. Everyone has to start somewhere right? It's nothing to be ashamed of.

Yes, there is a God and Jesus Christ did walk this Earth, however , I am of the opinion that there roles and purpose was misunderstood ....

Being agnostic, I can agree with this also. In fact there were 19 Jesus' of Nazareth. And I agree that due to these facts that certainly much is misunderstood. No miracles, not burning bushes, just a bloke trying to make the world a better place. Well, one of the 19 of them anyway. I guess one could say it "kinda" worked out? It depends on your view. I would consider that most people see that "success" in varying degrees.

That does not sound so much like a Christian, but one of those Cults like the Raellian's. Cults are bad, cults suck, and cults are about providing much for one person. They are never about the ignorant who buy into them.

I do not see any reason to think that aliens had a hand in shaping humanity. The fossil record is actually, and literally "set in stone". We have an excellent record of the rise of man, and how that came to be from synapsids to sapiens, and not so much as an Alien Tic Tac has shown up in the fossil record, let alone an ancient genetic manipulator.

Well, yes we have a modern example. Coral Castle. It's been done, in modern times, and no aliens were involved. There is also reasonable evidence to how the pyramids were constructed, but I digress.

Poppycock. Everyone has the tools and the means to understand. Personal levels of laziness, a will to "bait" others for fun, and the old hoping for something to come along and "Change the way of things" so that lazy end up rich are the stumbling blocks we all need to overcome. Who would not like to sit on a nice beach all day with personal beer service? That is not going to happen no matter who invades the earth. Everyone is capable of understanding, some prefer the alternate path that requires rose coloured glasses, and some like to think they are "naturally smart" and do not require the restrictions of learning institutions. Laughable as this it, we see examples constantly. Even this lot are "meant" to know, but are too lazy to do so.

All may not know, but thanks to the curse of Phil Klass, we all find out. In the end.

And what do you think it might mean if this doesn't happen?
I'm going to give my own predictions:

1. Despite the fact that nothing out of the ordinary will happen on 21/12/2012, people will try to shoehorn other events from vaguely the same time period as being predicted events (for example Hurricane Sandy, an interesting but nowhere near event of the millennium climate event will possibly be shoehorned in as a 21/12/2012 event despite being months out of date)

2. People will suddenly realise that 21/12/2012 was the "wrong" date and that the date needs to be recalculated and that it turns out that the Mayans "really" predicted an event in 2014 or 2017 or 2125 or 2442 or whatever.

3. True believers will insist they were right and that they never predicted anything would happen on 21/12/2012, just that the date marked the start of a new era, therefore nothing interesting would happen anyway.

Either way, expect believers to be falling all over each other trying to explain why nothing is going on.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.

When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.

Concerning the Great Pyramid:
  • How did it come to be aligned exactly according to the cardinal points of the compass?  With what means?
  • How did it come to be built at exactly 30 deg N?

Quote

Rewinding the astronomical clock using modern computers shows that the two stars rotated around the pole opposite each other in the Old Kingdom sky. In other words, an imaginary line joining the stars passed through the north pole. When the two stars lay vertically above each other, both would mark the position of true north for the pyramid builders.

However, due to precession, the line joining Mizar and Kochab only drifted into precise alignment with the north pole in 2467 BC, then wandered away (see graphic). The orientation of successive pyramids faithfully tracks this drift, Spence says, explaining the rise and fall of north-south alignment precision.

Ramps, leverage and hard labour. Again, have you have a look at the Parthenon? Did you now it's perfection is due to it's irregularity? I find it a far more impressive structure.

The sun makes an amazing straight edge. It can be as long as you like, or as short, and always dead straight. Hint - you use the shadow. You know what is more impressive? The slight curving nature of the columns supporting the Parthenon.

  • What was the purpose behind the so called ventilation shafts inside the 'Kings and Queen's chambers'?  Where do they go?  Remember that the shafts inside one of the chambers were totally blocked until discovered in the 20th century.

Dr Hawass believes this was to allow Khufu's soul to travel out and to the stars. One set for day entry/return. and one for night if memory serves. It's a religious thing. No wonder it was hard to figure out. Religion does not have all that much respect for logic. Yet the below is fascinating isn't it? Why could that not be part of the reason? These structures would have to be bone dry before placing what one believes to be a God inside of them for preservation.

  • Why the salt deposits inside the Queen's chamber?  From where did it originate?

Humidity. And tourists.

Quote

The story of the discovery of the hidden doors began in 1992, when I made the decision to close the Great Pyramid to visitors in order to begin a project to reduce the humidity inside and to correct the damage that was occurring from the accumulation of salt. Each visitor who enters the pyramid leaves behind about 20 grams of moisture from their breath and sweat. When it evaporates, this moisture leaves behind salt deposits, which erode the stone over time. In 1992, we found that the humidity inside the pyramid was hovering around 85%, and salt deposits covered the walls of the Grand Gallery. We cleaned the salt from the walls of the Grand Galley, but we knew that to save the pyramid from irreversible damage, we also had to find a way to reduce the humidity inside.

Guess how they managed it.

  • Why do the mathematical constants of pi and the golden mean turn up in it's construction when knowledge of these constants was supposed to have originated in Greece thousands of years later?

I'll let the department of Mathematics from Washington U answer that one for me:


Quote


The main point that I will make in this essay is that when one takes into account what we know about ancient Egyptian mathematics (based primarily on the Rhind Papyrus), especially their ways of representing lengths and slopes, then the relationship between &pi and the Great Pyramid no longer seems very remarkable. The essential point is that the measurement system which the ancient Egyptians used would lead the architects to use certain slopes in the design of pyramids. One of those slopes just happens to be an excellent approximation to the number 4/&pi, and if the architect chooses that slope, then the pyramid would exhibit the famous &pi relationship. From this point of view, the probability that the architect might choose that particular slope for at least one of the pyramids is actually rather high. It then becomes quite reasonable to believe that the relationship between &pi and the Great Pyramid is just an accidental consequence of their Mathematics.

Let's assume that the architect decides to specify the angle by the inverse of its slope and also decides to represent that inverse-slope by a fraction with a denominator which divides 28. Let's continue to assume that the architect wants the angle to be between 43o and 55o. The smallest possible value for that inverse-slope would then be 20/28=5/7. That corresponds to the angle ARCTAN(7/5)=54o27'44". The largest possible value for the inverse-slope is 30/28=15/14, corresponding to the angle ARCTAN(14/15)=43o01'30". Thus, under the above assumptions, the inverse-slope would be chosen as one of the fractions 20/28, 21/28, ..., 30/28. There are 11 possible choices. Let's assume that the architect is equally likely to choose any of these possibilities. Thus, with a probability of 1/11, the architect might choose 22/28=11/14 as the inverse-slope. The faces of the resulting pyramid built with that specification would have a slope of 14/11. This turns out to be extremely close to 4/&pi. In fact, 4/&pi=1.273239... and 14/11=1.272727... and the approximation of 4/&pi by 14/11 is accurate to within .04%. Under this scenario, which might seem rather strange at first, the probability that the architect's pyramid would have a slope of 4/&pi with the same accuracy as that exhibited by the Great Pyramid of Khufu is 1/11. The probability is even higher if one assumes that the architect wants to make the angle rather steep. That would correspond to choosing a smaller value for the inverse-slope and therefore make 22/28 a more likely choice.

Baffling fo you maybe. Most of us are intrigued and impressed at shaving some more time of the history calendar.

You are just a bit slow, but the information is out there if you look. Might pay to roll up your sleeves for better reasons than to sit on your hands and take some wild guesses. It's madness to refuse to learn and insist in trolling Youtube for hours on end as opposed to heading over to a learning institution and seeing what you can pick up. Your "self taught" method appears to be failing you - badly.

Puma Punku. I would suggest you go have a decent read before you make a mess of that as well.

Good day to you also, sir. I've been quite well. And that's an excellent example, by the way. I hadn't been aware of the Homer Tunnel; I'll have to do a bit more study on it when I have time.

Try to realize it's all within yourself / No-one else can make you change / And to see you're really only very small / And life flows on within you and without you. / We were talking about the love that's gone so cold and the people / Who gain the world and lose their soul / They don't know they can't see are you one of them? / When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind / Is waiting there / And the time will come / when you see we're all one and life flows on within you and without you. ~ George Harrison
