There is no messenger if the one pretending to carry messages is doing it to push his agenda, that is moving the blame for own failures in his theory somewhere else.

SC

On the other hand it doesn't prove the remains aren't those of Djoser either, so they should not be summarily dismissed as supporting your negative conclusion. So it's you who needs to go back to the drawing board. Either prove they are definitively NOT part of the remains of Djoser, or shut up about it. As has already been mentioned the shafts under the east side of Djoser's tomb cannot be attributed, with any specificity, to Djoser's reign. Which further fails to support your RVT.

SC: A logical fallacy. You are asking me to prove a negative. The burden of proof lies with Egyptology to prove these remains belong to the king they attribute this pyramid to. As matters stand, and if C14 radiocarbon dating is to be accepted, then the evidence points away from these remains belonging to Djoser. Those are the facts.

There are no known mummies of kings from before the 5th dynasty (actually it's even later).

I believe this dovetails quite nicely with my contention that these mummies were cremated to
protect them forever exactly as the ancients actually said and repeatedly implied.

Remember;

"...I will set fire to him (the corpse) at the beginning of the great season".

These things don't go away just because Egyptologists don't want to see them.

I seem to recall that someone, I don't remember who, said they found dirt or something like that in the sarcophagus of the king's chamber in the Great Pyramid.  If that is accurate and we'll say they did cremate Khufu, those may have been the ashes of the king, making the pyramid a tomb.

Then ignore my views if you think i'm boring. Also, i find it strange as to why you would call someone a troll for expressing "alternative history and mystery opinions on an alternative history and ancient mystery discussion forum", you should know exactly it is you are.

I am also not on your site, am i? nor do i want to go there, with you as an administrator the place must be intolerant of alternative views being discussed.

I also see that you have not provided any video proof of Khufu building the pyramid? all you have is other peoples interpretations of dodgy artifacts and ancient heiroglpyhs, papyrus scibes, ornaments, monuments etc. Egyptologists theory is no better than the next persons theory. Their evidence is only an opinion, not a fact as far as i am concerned.

You might think its cool to silence alternative views being expressed, but i think its fun how hard you try to deride them, it just makes it feel that my theory is all the more believable given how your aggressive reaction is to it.  You can not debate in a civil manner, you resort to calling people a "troll" if you do not agree with their opinions or back up your own theory.

Egyptologists when translating heiroglyphs are only expressing an opinion as am i, when i look at them.   

You may wish to avoid comments like the one about video proof.  It is troll like and can lead people to the wrong conclusion.  Your theory, from what I have seen, is based as much in dismissing evidence and research as it is a belief in the mystical.  I may have missed it but I do not believe you have posted anything to support your theory.  If you have I apologize, If you haven't then your theory really can't be accepted as believable without some kind of support.

Your last sentence is false:  If you an I were standing side by side, looking at writing from a language neither of us knew how to read then whatever we said about the writing would be opinions from both of us.  If I had studied and could read the writing, what you said would be opinion but what I said would not be.  It is the same with Egyptian hieroglyphs.  The Rosetta Stone has showed us how to decipher them so those using that information have studied and know how to read them and what they indicate the hieroglyphs say is not opinion while yours is.

Making the statement you did based solely on what is IMO your inability to read and translate the glyphs, shows a lack of logic, and to me a lack of intelligence used when forming your post.

Actually only people who have studied and learned to read hieroglyphics can give an accurate translation of what they say.  Yes he has his opinion but it is not based on his ability to read hieroglyphics.  Further he indicates that those who translate hieroglyphics are giving nothing but opinions which we know is incorrect.

You're not the only ones who study it.  

This will be my last post on this thread. I believe i have made valuable contributions to the topic, albeit controversial ones that some posters do not agree with it. But thats the nature of an "Alternative History And Ancient Mystery Forum" Not everyone will agree with alternative history and mysteries that are different from the garbage that the mainstream likes to entertain.

kmt_sesh and Egyptologists are not the end all and be all of study of the pyramids especially in light that research and study is still ongoing.  The important thing to remember is that they do study and research and use what they have learned to postulate what the most probable theory would be.  Perhaps you should give it a try.

Yes, but generally only in the spelling of foreign names or words. Linguists have posited that most or all dialects in the ancient Nile Valley did not possess an "L" in their language, so the Egyptians tended to use a handful of different glyphs to try to represent this sound. The "R" glyph (D21) was one of these. However, by far the most common to represent the "L" sound was the glyph depicting a recumbant lion (E23). See the hieroglyphic spellings for names like Ptolemy and Cleopatra.

When used to represent phonetic values within texts or inscriptions written by Egyptians for the sake of their own language, the "R" glyph did not stand for an "L."

Then what do you say about this below. Could it be that Auriteans were in fact Auliteans? Atlanteans were foreigners to Egyptians.



Auriteans is the name given by the ancient writer Manetho to the first kings to rule over Egypt during the “reign of the gods”. R. Cedric Leonard comments on this on his website and in his books(a)[130][131].

“Plato described Atlantis as being ruled by ten kings before its demise. Egyptian king-lists going back thousands of years before Plato (we will look at one example here) establish four important facts, which we should note:

Egyptian tradition begins with the “reign of the gods”
In all there were ten of these so-called “god-kings”
They were said to have reigned in a foreign country
From all appearances they were called “Atlanteans”
This last statement will be challenged by scholars, so let’s take a closer look at the Egyptian king-lists. One noticeable fact is that Manetho (250 B.C.) calls the first series of kings who ruled during the “reign of the gods,” Auriteans. This seems to be nothing more than a corruption of the word “Atlantean”. Let me explain.

Egyptian hieroglyphics only approximate real sounds: for instance, a hieroglyphic “k” must be used to represent the hard “g” sound. The hieroglyph that Manetho transcribed as r can equally be transcribed as an l. Thus the “Auriteans” of Manetho’s king-lists could just as well be “Auliteans”: phonetically almost identical to “Atlanteans”. This idea obtains credible support from the fact that the ancient Phoenician historian Sanchuniathon (1193 BC) calls these very same kings “Aleteans” [714](B). Isn’t it likely that Aleteans=Atlanteans?”

In spite of this valiant attempt to equate the Egyptian king lists with the kings of Atlantis, it must be pointed out that the ten Atlantean kings noted by Plato were brothers and so reigned concurrently over different part of the empire, whereas the king lists cited by Leonard relate to kings that reigned successively.

Which still is the case in many old alphabets, like in the Greek there is no B (no, that is not beta but wita) where a B is formed by the diphthong MP and it has no D (it is some kind of hard  Z sound) and is formed by the diphthong NT. Neither B or D existed in real ancient Greek.

We could add Phoenician, Hebrew and last but not least Sumerian that did not know a C and where most vowels only existed in combination with consonants to that list (without a claim of completeness).

Nevertheless it doesnt change fact that Auriteans could be Auliteans if I understood Kmt sesh corectly.
Ten Egyptian Gods are ten Atlantis kings from Poseidon temple?
