Egyptian pyramid builders ? Someone is having a laugh.
Who wrote these papyrus then ? certainly not the pyramid builders, they didn't leave anything behind, no plans, no tools, nothing.

Still, If Mark and Zahi still think one can cut granite and limestone with copper, good luck to them...

4600 year old tomb my backside... :td

Thomas the tank Engine is closer to the truth than Zahi's theories... :wi
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.
