So that must be it then. Could this have been the case though? Do historians contend with the scientists? If not then the Egyptions had some neat tricks up their sleeves. I cant believe that none of their arkitecture secrets have been discovered. Levitation or not, it appears that ramps at least were involved. Remains of ramps have been found beside several pyramids, including the Great Pyramid. AFAIK, the Egyptians were unaware of pulleys. No question that, if they used pulleys at all, they didn't use compound pulleys and thus achieved no mechanical advantage with any pulley they may have (th...

And you know this by channeling, time traveling or listening to the storyline mainstream archaeologists follow, not to upset "Hawassism" by discarding artifacts that don't fit in the preconceived model? Inquiring minds want to know. Well, maybe just me... Cheers Edit: I changed Darwinism to "Hawassism". I created a new word, but what the heck

And you know this by channeling, time traveling or listening to the storyline mainstream archaeologists follow, not to upset Darwinism by discarding artifacts that don't fit in the preconceived model? Yeah, that and the fact of the ramps still being there and the workers village right next to the pyramid complex. But if you insist, then by all means include channeling and time travel. Except, they weren't slaves and they considered it an "honor" to do the work. And the pyramids have nothing to do with Darwin or the Theory of Evolution. And that there are no "discarded artifacts" that "don't fi...

I don't see how ramps and "levitation" couldn't go hand-in-hand. If they did have some sort of secret stone levitating procedure, they could have still needed a ramp to push them up, like how a hovercraft needs a surface underneath it, but doesn't actually touch it. I'm not claiming that's how it worked - just making a point.

In deference to the more adventurous in this thread (mainly because it's not in the "Ancient Mysteries and Alternative History section,) I purposefully left that possibility wide open when I said: Levitation or not, it appears that ramps at least were involved.

I personally wouldn't consider the possibility of levitation for even a picosecond. But hey, that's me and this isn't the section of the forum where I usually argue such things. What a closed mind you have "Harte" http://science.howstuffworks.com/acoustic-levitation1.htm Dan Dare
