Although geologists in general do not agree with Schoch I do appreciate his input into the issues. It's a clear demonstration that new ideas need to be put forth. New ideas might work out or they might not work out. It seems that Schoch interesting suggestion does not work out, but that does not mean that Schoch should not have suggested it in the first place. It makes people think and it makes people more aware of what is in front of their eyes.
The pyramids are stunning. They are mountains on the outskirts of Cairo. Unless you've climbed to the top as I have you might not understand how truly incredibly large these are. All I climbed was the smaller of the 3 and that's a big pile of rock. Standing at the top with arms stretched upwards towards a pristine night sky was suddenly broken by a spotlight from the sound and light show by the Sphinx. That certainly got the adrenaline pulsing through me.
I tip my hat to Schoch for being observant and bringing an interesting point of view out for discussion.
