YOu're over generalising the logistics ... and this is not going the way of 'Aliens' //
at least not yet ... lol

What we're getting straight here is what it 'really' takes to get all the tonnage stacked up almost forty stories plus, way up there on the top and put in place. Every step of the way.
Not just the usual ~ I know its not this hence it just has to be like that.

No need to call the Anti Extra Terrestrial league in here and start taking off the pants yet Kludge my man ...
Look at the problem with the intention of solving it not with the pre supposed intentions of brushing it off ....

I promise you ... its more interesting than AIL-E-UNZ

It is a difficult conundrum ... that's why its still being discussed up and down the aisles of 'research'

By making it easier than it definitely is not would not make it go away ... Egyptology Academia has tried for years ... its still here.

Oh .. one more thing ... in regards to the Pyramid of Khufu .. everything has to be completed in twenty years .... and less.


:yes:

Where has Egyptology tried to make it appear easier than it was? What Egyptology has done is NOT take the GP out of context to the construction of other Egyptian structures before and after it and pretend it was 'impossible' for humans to have done it. As opposed to many others, particularly the fringe, Egyptologists don't attempt to claim that the 2.5 million block estimate is anything more than an estimate. Petrie himself even stated that it included the massif the GP was build over. Meaning that any claims of its construction being 'impossible' by the fringe, disregarding Petrie's having added the volume of the massif into the GP's overall volume, are pretty much a lie by omission. Imagine that. And as I showed in one of my own threads two years ago a more accurate estimate would significantly decrease the total blocks in the GP. That we don't have the fine/day-to-day details in no way takes its construction out of the hands of humans IMO.

How many uses do you think a ramp has? Traces of interior ramps have survived inside the remains of the pyramids of Sahura, Nyuserra and Neferirkara, at Abusir, and of Pepi II, at Saqqara. Excavation on the area south of the Great Pyramid revealed evidence of the remains ofthe ramp ofthe

what bothers me psyche is that you seem ever so quick to substantiate some doctrine which some schmuck with a degree in egyptology put fourth (most likely with an alterior motive in solidifying the flow of tourist dollars) as compelling evidence to come to the conclusion as being matter of fact.

Lets look at what you said, - A Degree in Egyptology. To my experience, anything worth having takes effort. People are not "naturally smart" although some allude to being so. Simple fact is that these people devote more effort into this one subject than all those proposing alternates tied together and folded over. So why would one not turn there first, and why not accept what is a more sound explanation? Details from professionals are in depth, not like the mountains of speculation that make up claims of power plants and aliens.

What does that say? To me it says a person who has dedicated their entire life to the study of this particular subject. I am not sure why you think people who outright lie (Giorgio and the clip you offered) as well as entertainment show presenters are on the same level? I certainly would like to ask the same question of you, the men I have supported show evidence by way of examples and practical demonstrations to illustrate their techniques but the likes of Giorgio just make things up as they go along. A great many of his claims are proven to be no more than fabrications.

How do you feel someone with a TV show is more up to speed on the intricacies of the Pyramids as opposed to one who spends almost every day of their life on that very site studying in depth each inch of the structure and the surrounding areas, and who has a lineage that stems to that very culture?

It bothers me that these people get the time of day. The History channel has let us down big time since Disney bought it out. I feel AA is more in the realm of "Gator Boys" or "Swamp People" than it is in a stage with people like Hawass and Stadelmann. As I have shown you, many of the claims are pure lies. People should not be allowed to spread lies and call them truths, or even alternatives, they are not, it's just one mans imagination that he managed to sell very well. And that is how they should be illustrated.

You need to stop thinking of a cutting edge, the cutting method is abrasion, like we use on diamond disc cutting machines, incidentally, diamonds are cut using a phosphor bronze blade. According to AA theorists, that's impossible, but we do it.

I think the reason why they actually made them is a bigger mystery, however, one depiction we have of moving a very massive weight any distance is from the Middle Kingdom, the 12th Dynasty: a tomb of a man named Jahuti Hotep. And there is a scene in his tomb, or there was a scene, it's very badly damaged now, of, I believe it's 172 men pulling a very heavy, large, colossal statue. The statue is estimated to have weighed 54 tons, which is more than comparable. So you have long lines of men going off in different ropes noted in historical record to move massve things.

seriously this is in DIORITE which is harder than granite. wtf was used to do this?


No, I do not fear them, I suspect the same way the Code of Hammurabi was carved? Whilst it seems impossible for softer materials to make an impression on these harder compounds, as I pointed out diamonds, which are much harder again, are cut even today with a phosphor bronze blade. However, carving diorite is not much of a mystery since the basic skills were developed during the Neolithic with the manufacturing of stone percussion tools. These tools (i.e. axe heads, maceheads and adze) were routinely made of hardrocks like travertine, granite, diorite, basalt, etc because of their high fracture strength (i.e. doesn't fracture along discreet planes easily)

There are many man made diorite artefacts, the hardness might be difficult to work with, but because of that it produces a highly polished finish and fine detail is more achievable. Which results in a more desirable and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

ok ok. alright.
i really do believe theres a ramp somewhere out there that may or may not have once been used as an extended base to a chicken crate. this still explains NOTHING. nor does it validate as proof regarding the construction of the pyramid. or how the tools were used. it barely constitutes as a fabricated method. but i believe one exists.
somewhere. which still explaines nothing.

first, show me this is killer ramp. the ramp of all ramps. then explain in your words how this ramp is responsible for the construction, laying out some methods for how it was used. since potentially there are hundreds at least.

Yes there woud be hundreds and hundreds were used, consider the bent pyramid. Personally from a logical point of view I favour the internal ramp model, not only because we have evidence in several pyramids, but as mentioned, it can easily be cannibalised to finish the higher levels. That's common in construction. Even in my field we put in permanent solutions as a temporary item, and then reconfigure connections to reuse the temp system as permanent.

How do you want me to show you?

We started to remove sand for the erection of the Sound and Light cables north of the paved road
and south of the pyramid. During the work we found a large part of the ramp used to transport the

stonesfrom the quarry to the pyramid base. This part ofthe ramp consisted oftwo walls built ofstone
rubble and mixed with tafla. The area in between was filled with sand and gypsum forming the bulk
ofthe ramp (figs 3-5, pI. 3b, 4a).

Contradiction? Could you extrapolate please?


The validity of AA is shown over and agin to be a personal item. One can choose to believe it, but it is not supported by fact at all. That is why it is refuted, they lie about the age of sites, the weight of items, the composition of items and speculate demise of the structure based on biased speculation. Egyptologists use hieroglyphs and inspection of existing artefacts and comparisons which strikes me as a far better source to determine the history of any aspect associated with ancient Egypt.

not true. and i hope you certainly do not believe this. just because one challenges the norm does not mean to mock it. although i do mock it for many other reasons.  the fact is that one should always contest a theory especially of that which is based on transparent evidence. evidence which itself is highly arguable and lacking in the overall picture. if youre trying to make me feel bad for the underpaid egyptologist its not working. its is their own faults of playing the role of puppets which when added up, their theories become less reasonable the more time goes by.  i surmise , thanks to this AA theorists gained fame on this notion alone.

i dont base my adherence to the AA theory based on the AA show alone. though i wouldnt watch it if not for georgio tsoukalis and his sexy hair. aside from that it is no more full of fabrications than mainstream texts. atleast they dont claim anything as proof. they openly take the stance of suggestion.and for good reason. in its entirely, egyptology is evasive. shame on them for demanding people adhere to such an insufficiient so called claim to history.

Well my hair is not as long as his, best warn you up front I suppose, you would know this if you had those binoculars going yet.

You reckon? Lets look at Giorgio's statements on Puma Punku shall we?


Ancient Aliens: “Pumapunku is so unique in the way it was constructed and shaped and positioned that it is the most intriguing ancient site on the planet.”

>>>>>>> AA: “While the pyramids at Giza are an incredible feat of achieved, compared to Pumapunku, the pyramids are child’s play.       ?????????

AA: “One of the most intriguing thing there is it that the stones that were used there weren’t sandstone, they’re granite and diorite. The only stone that is harder than diorite is diamond, so the only way this could have been achieved is if the tools were tipped with diamonds.”

AA: “The stones that were used there weren’t sandstone, they’re granite and diorite.”

AA: “One of these platforms is 800 tons.”

AA: “Extraterrestrials arrive; the spaceship stands in orbit. Only a small spaceship can stand, like a space shuttle. So, to protect their instruments they (the aliens) make, overnight, with their technology, what we call a base camp. Of course [this was] made out of stones found on Earth, because you don’t transport granite or diorite from another solar system. Then they disappeared, but the wall of their base camp is still there.”


Getting the picture? The wall of the alien base camp is still there????


Really?

can you elaborate here. what is it' exactly.
supported means its correct? do you ever question anything thats supported? i hope sometimes. as i stated, until i am content with facts, which can and only complete the overall picture in virtually every aspect., in this case the giza pyramd, i will stand to question everything.

"It" is method.

Yes I do question that which is supported, I was along time MOGUL proponent with regards to the Roswell Incident, but better information that is not mainstream was provided by UM member Lost Shaman who I feel has the right hypothesis. I do not know any UM member other than Lost Shaman whom I would consider more knowledgeable about that case than myself, and he turned my conviction by asking me to falsify his hypothesis. I cannot. From what I have seen, nobody can, and all the mainstream guys, USAF and UFOlogists avoid his sound explanation for reasons unknown.

It's all about what can remain standing at the end of the day with me. AA does not even clear breakfast.

i apologize if i oversaw this. regardless of the date of puma punku, which is pretentious, my curiously lies in how and by who.
the parthenon is NOT an enigma. ill give way to acedemia here since its importance in the aspect of ancient mysteries and structures is obscure. personally speaking.

Tiwanaku culture, and it is significant in Incan traditions because it is believed to be the site where the world was created.

The Parthenon is indeed an enigma, did you realise few lines are straight, but all look straight? It's a most amazing and impressive design. Even the columns have variations that are designed to be absorbed aesthetically.

A SCULPTOR'S BUILDING

Why are there no straight lines or right angles on the Parthenon, and how do we know that this simply wasn't a mistake?

Since the early 19th century scholars have studied and measured the Parthenon and demonstrated that the so-called optical refinements of the Parthenon, the deviations from the perfectly horizontal or the perfectly vertical, deviations from the straight and perpendicular, were in fact intentional. They are not the result of the settling of the building over time. There is a slight beveling or a slight angle in the blocks that was intended to create, for example, the curvature of the steps.

i just may believe it. certainly before i believe egyptologists alleged proof.

Yet I am using the same methods they describe.

yeeeeearp. but most fit my description of rubbish in comparison.

Exactly my point. As time wore on they got better as per the examples surrounding the great pyramid.

The second historically documented Egyptian pyramid is attributed to the architect Imhotep, who planned what Egyptologists believe to be a tomb for the pharaoh Djoser. Imhotep is credited with being the first to conceive the notion of stacking mastabas on top of each other – creating an edifice composed of a number of "steps" that decreased in size towards its apex. The result was the Step Pyramid of Djoser – which was designed to serve as a gigantic stairway by which the soul of the deceased pharaoh could ascend to the heavens. Such was the importance of Imhotep's achievement that he was deified by later Egyptians.

were they really? or perhaps for used for its durability . and  used internally for their immense ability to withhold erosion.? frankly though my guess seems a bit more rational, both are good guesses. and for lack of solid evidence  that is exactly what they remain for now, speculations.

Granite inside a Pyramid? But the external is sandstone?? How is that rational with regards to erosion?

since we should not even have to include the word laser as it (according to theory) was non existing at the time, it is therefore irrelivant.
again i point out the fact this stands as your assumption,i still want the entire blueprint.

That' s what I said, no lasers are needed.

Great post.  Except, please refrain from such injurious insulting of "Swamp People," a decent show with some true experts, albeit of the alligator-catching variety.  Comparing AA to that show is extremely insulting to "Swamp People."

Thank you kindly Harte, I very much appreciate the kind words.

I'll take note of that, perhaps I should have said, AA has as much experience with ancient Egypt as swamp people. Not seen much more than the ads myself I admit, I'll have to give it a go.

Psyche, mate, don't. I forced myself to sit through two episodes of AA a year and a half ago or so just to educate myself since I wanted to be able to discussed the topic and thus be informed about it. I have yet to encounter a more mind numbing and toe cringing experience. I had originally planned on watching the full evening worth of episodes, but gave up after two. It was simply so contradictory, imaginative and non-scientific that it induced excruciating pains in every single sensory organ.

I admit my experience with the show has been similar, I just can't bring myself to watch it without getting angry at the mockery it makes of legitimate research. I knew I had to stop watching when my kids started to look at me funny for arguing rather vocally with the TV... :lol:

since i live outside new york city yes. if i had to stop to ask myself how i felt it was certainly in the 90s. and it depended on what substance i was under the influence of at the time. which i reckon was early am.
shame on you for comparing these modern paper glass houses with the GP.  and for making me relive my flashbacks of the past.

Well I personally think the Burj Dubai is hard to top. Even a theme park is more intricate and complex than a pyramid to be frank.

I do not see why pointing out that modern marvels surpass the size and complexity of a pyramid is a bad thing? Pyramids are the most basic and stable shape known to man, which would be why kids make them with mud piles.

do not be quick to throw me into the flames of the green men supporters just because i question how humans were capable to use multiton blocks in construction at a time when my boke would have been the best on the block since there was no wheels invented . you are too quick to point in the furthest direction, which i can understand due to the endless supply of abductees here on this forum but i remind you, i havent made any conclusions for it would be rather ignorant of me to do so without the proof.

Not so much you, but your source. The Wheel outdates the original settlement of Baalbek, but not the structure.

If you have a look at that site I keep linking to - This One LINK it refutes most of the information that has been presented as "proof" of AA theory. It has several sections, all dealing with specific episodes of AA, which in turn seems to mostly regurgitate known claims such as Daniken's.

Id love to hear your opinion, (based on the execution of history books of course),

what was the need for the gigantic blocks and the necessary altitude for which this was erected? why such extreme measures? id really prefer to hear your own theory, this is if you even submit to one of your own. regardless if it is based off of so called fact.

My opinion is not so much based on working Egyptology, but Egyptian culture in general, I find the idea of an afterlife desirable, but find myself unable to have any faith in it, and this comes from the history of the Afterlife, as art of a personal pursuit  which seems to be largely influenced by Egyptian texts. Why such extreme measures? These pyramids and artefacts are designed as tombs, despite alternate theories all texts and existing records point at this. Not to mention it is a common human theme amongst rising cultures. Heaven is a long way away, right up there past the clouds, so you have to build big things so they can see it, not to mention bigger is better according to some, and man seems to think Gods are just like us, but huge. As such I have seen the texts referred to by Hawass and his ilk, and they stand to scrutiny. As per the above link, AA does not, so it seems little deduction is required by me to understand who is being genuine here.
