When you can define the terms it will constitute some sort of evidence. I can't even find
a vague estimate of the relative amounts of wood, tafla, chips, debris, sand, desert refuse,
and other material supposedly in an unknown quantity in the main quarry. It requires actual
scientific sampling to have any meaning at all. There had to have been at least three or four
meters of windblown sand on it and this is never even listed as a constituent part. Until basic
scientific procedures are used we don't know. You do realize that "tafla" is naturally occur-
ing clay right in the desert? It's not necessarily surprising that they had some to toss in with-
out it meaning they dragged stones up ramps.
Ramps would be as big a project as the pyramid. The word "ramp" would be littered
throughout the cemeteries. There would be gods of ramps and stone draggers. There
would be sled builders and repairers. None of this exists. There is nothing in evidence
and no reason to believe they had the huge manpower available. Remember half of
this work was women's work. If they had used ramps less than one job in a hundred
would have been done by women.
There were no ramps. Ramps are a silly way to lift stones 481'. They might be impos-
sible for lifting stones 481' but the evidence says it doesn't matter.
