"...I found that I, working alone, could easily move a 2400 lb. block 300 ft. per hour with little effort, and a 10,000 lb. block at 70 ft. per hour. I also stood two 8 ft. 2400 lb. blocks on end and placed another 2400 lb. block on top. This took about two hours per block. I found that one man, working by himself, without the use of wheels, rollers, pulleys, or any type of hoisting equipment could perform the task....
"For many years’ people have tried to solve the mystery of the Egyptian pyramids...I have found that this work could easily be done using only primitive tools and physics....
"I have found that only simple wooden tools and gravity is needed for moving heavy weight. Nothing rigid is necessary. You do not need to lift weight to move it from place to place. Stones make excellent fulcrums and pivot points....
"I could build The Great Pyramid of Giza, using my techniques and primitive tools...No external ramp is needed...."
In my head, no date before the creation of Adam (BC 4043) or after Noah's Flood (BC 2387) is possible. There were giants on the Earth in those days, but they were men of renown, not likely to do construction work. Since no giant's bones have been found buried near the Great Pyramid of Giza, I assume that Adam's descendants did the work, and that God instructed them on how to use levers, fulcrums, counterweights and gravity to move the stones into their places.
The Sphinx and it's enclosing walls
The Sphinx and it's enclosing walls show drastic water erosion, from rain and standing water--in the dry desert climate of Egypt. Since the erosion on the Sphinx is different than the erosion on the temples in the Giza Plateau, the Sphinx predates the temples. The Sphinx and surrounding walls have one-meter-deep fissures. That's drastic erosion. The heavy erosion on the upper back and neck suggest standing water erosion not possible from the flooding Nile River. All carving tool marks have eroded away.
The earliest re-facing stones on the Sphinx were form-fitted to previously eroded blocks underneath. That erosion took time before anyone would have re-faced the blocks. Also, inscriptions date the re-facing repairs to Egypt's Old Kingdom, showing that the erosion of the Sphinx occurred well before the Old Kingdom era. It is easy to see that the Sphinx was there prior to Khufu's reign, and therefore before the Pyramid was built.
The small head size and lack of erosion matching the rest of the statue reveal that the head of Virgo was re-carved after Leo was finished. I feel sure the recarving was instigated by Satan, because the uraeus, rearing cobra headpiece, was on the present head. We can be reasonably sure that the original head was of a woman, because of the woman's head on Leo in the Denderah zodiac, and the Greek Sphinxes with heads of woman. Satan always gives his counterfeits twists too. Other Egyptian Sphinxes have been found with different heads that tie in with Satanic religion
I feel sure that the creation of the Zodiac and Sphinx (to show that the Zodiac starts with Virgo, i.e., Christ as the seed of the woman, and ends with Leo, i.e., Christ as King of kings) preceded construction of the Great Pyramid.
"The pyramids and the Sphinx were once under water"
This water was Noah's Flood.
Josephus said that Adam and Seth "were the inventors of that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned with the heavenly bodies, and THEIR ORDER." The Sphinx is tied to the Zodiac order, Virgo first, Leo last.
The Pyramid pillar
Josephus said, "And that their inventions might not be lost before they were sufficiently known, UPON ADAM'S PREDICTION that the world was to be destroyed at one time by the force of fire, and at another time BY THE VIOLENCE AND QUANTITY OF WATER (Noah's Flood), THEY (Adam and Seth) MADE TWO PILLARS; THE ONE OF BRICK (probably a practice run), THE OTHER OF STONE (the Great Pyramid); they inscribed their discoveries on them both, that in case the pillar of brick should be destroyed by THE FLOOD, the PILLAR OF STONE might remain, and EXHIBIT (depict by visible signs) THOSE DISCOVERIES TO MANKIND...Now this remains in the land of Siriad (Egypt) to this day" (late first century AD) (Ant. I. II. 3).
Both the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza were there at the time of Noah's Flood. Salt found on the walls of the King and Queen's Chambers and in the Grand Gallery of the Pyramid show that the flood waters of Noah's day, salted heavily by the Mediterranean seawater, seeped into the Pyramid during the Flood. The Pit below and the air shafts above were necessary to dry the Pyramid out after the Flood subsided.
The "Circle of Enoch" in the Pyramid sets the time of a Pyramid inch equaling one year. This ties Enoch in with the construction of the Pyramid.
Adam was a prophet. Enoch was too. Jude 14 says, "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, PROPHESIED of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints." Therefore, I think Enoch would have been in on the planning of the Pyramid. Chances are good that he was the architect.
Pyramid construction between 3391 and 3113 BC
Priests and prophets began their duties when 30. Therefore, the Pyramid would have been built between when Enoch was 30 in BC 3391 and Adam's death in BC 3113. Since the Sphinx and Pyramid were underwater at the Flood, both were constructed before the Flood of BC 2387.
Carbon 14 dating of Pyramid mortar returned dates of 2853 - 3808 BC (see below). The 3391-3113 BC span fits inside the range of C-14 dates, showing that we are on the right track. A vastly older date, such as between 7000 -14000 BC, as some have suggested, does not work out at all.
"There is only one indicator of the possible age of the Great Pyramid other than speculation and hearsay. In the 1980’s the Great Pyramid was radiocarbon dated, not the stone, but the mortar. Mortar can be used to date fragments of organic material, such as wood and carbon residue, which are sometimes found embedded in the mortar between the stone blocks. The RADIOCARBON DATES FOR THE GREAT PYRAMID RANGED FROM 2853 TO 3809 BC..."
The reign of KHUFI (Greek CHEOPS), Dynasty IV http://ragz-international.com/egypt_art_and_architecture.htm
"Historians vary in their compilations of Egyptian chronology. The epoch of Menes (Dynasty I, first ruler over the combined Upper and Lower Egypt) is fixed by Bunsen at B.C. 3643, by Lepsius at B.C. 3892, and by Poole at B.C. 2717."
In my opinion, Khufu, who furnished the necessary finances and manpower to construct the Great Pyramid, did not reign Egypt from 3969 - 3908 BC, as Petrie says, not in BC 3892, as Lepsius says, not in BC 3643, as Bunsen says, not in BC 2900, as the chronology of Meyer and Breasted says, not in BC 2717, as Poole suggests, and not in BC 2554, as some historians suggest.
How many years did Khufu rule between our 3391 and 3113 BC boundaries?
"According to Herodotus Khufu ruled for 50 years, Manetho gives him 65 and the Turin Papyrus 23....This Cheops, the Egyptians said, reigned fifty years; and after he was dead his brother Chephren succeeded to the kingdom." Herodotus, Histories 2,124 ff -
If Khufu began construction in his second year, as Spence assumed, and it took 20 years to build the Pyramid, construction could have been during the last 20 years of Adam's life, from 3133 to 3113 BC. Adam, Seth and Enoch were all alive to oversee the construction during those years. Khufu would have ruled 22 years, 3135 to 3113 BC, by the time Adam died. With the information at hand, that is as close as I can get. BC 3113 was 726 years before Noah's Flood.
http://homepage.powerup.com.au/~ancient/chron.htm "HIEROGLYPHS MADE THEIR FIRST APPEARANCE TOWARD THE END OF THIS PERIOD, AROUND 3250 BC by the latest estimates."
This fits. Hieroglyphics were found in the upper lintel area of the King's Chamber.
..."In 1837, even Samuel Birch [Vyse's assistant and Sitchin's assumed forger] couldn't have faked the quarry marks. They have features which even experts didn't understand, but which have become clear since. In fact they fit in perfectly with later discoveries and later analyses."
Stower shows that the hieroglyphs' "misspellings" and errors were actually imperfections in 19th century knowledge of hieroglyphs projected onto the correctly-spelled hieroglyphs themselves....
"The only reasonable conclusion is the one which orthodox Egyptologists have already long held - namely that the hieroglyphs are genuine Old Kingdom graffiti and that they were daubed on the blocks before construction began."...
And so we have come full-circle, from the Egyptological acceptance of Vyse's findings, to alternative history's rejection and then acceptance of them....
As to another matter, Zahi Hawass says "... All the five relieving chambers are inscribed. ... there are some inscriptions there that cannot be written by anyone except the workmen who put them there. You cannot go and reach there. It has to be the man who put the block above the other one to do that...."...

"Back in Time 3104 B.C. to the Great Pyramid"
1990 by Socrates G. Taseos...
"...a group of scientists from Waseda University, Tokyo, using different criteria and totally independently from our work, came to similar conclusions regarding the age of the Great Sphinx--namely, that the Sphinx predates the time of Khafre".
This is the first time I realized that the niche in the Queen's Chamber tells the same story as the overhead lintels in the King's Chamber. The different levels indicate the five naked-eye planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, with Saturn at the top. When Nimrod started building the Tower of Babel, Saturn was represented by the black lowest layer. That's the way Satan turns things around to confuse mankind.
An underwater archaeological survey of the Mediterranean just a few miles off Egypt's north coast has revealed the remains of two 2,500-year-old cities, possibly Menouthis and Herakleion...
Herakleion had served as Egypt's principal commercial port until the founding of Alexandria by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C. By the fifth century A.D., however, these cities along with the Hellenistic capital of Alexandria had been destroyed, toppled by a series of earthquakes and tidal waves that struck the Egyptian coast, centered, according to Stamford University geophysicist Amos Nur, on a nascent fault line that stretches from Sicily to Cairo. Written sources tell us some 23 earthquakes struck North Africa between the years A.D. 320 and 1303, a particularly severe one in the summer of A.D. 365. Over time the coastline dropped more than 20 feet, the cities along it collapsing and slipping beneath the waves, and gradually buried by silt deposited by the Nile. The cities are located in what was once the Canopic Branch of the Nile which disappeared in the tectonic activity.
The picture gets clearer all the time. Isa. 19:19,20 says, "In that day shall there be an ALTAR TO THE LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and A PILLAR AT THE BORDER THEREOF TO THE LORD."
The Great Pyramid of Giza, 10 miles west of Cairo, Egypt
This vast edifice on the northern edge of the Giza plateau is thought to have been ERECTED ABOUT 3200 BC, DURING THE REIGN OF KHUFU in the fourth dynasty.
ZAHI HAWASS, Director General of Giza
...The Great Pyramid is dated with all the evidence, I'm telling you now TO 4,600 YEARS, THE REIGN OF KHUFU....
NOVA: But what about the incriptions in the relieving chambers in Khufu and the claim that they were not written in the time of Khufu?
HAWASS: They say that these inscriptions have been written by people who entered inside. And if you go and see them they are typical graffiti that can be seen around every pyramid in Egypt, because the workmen around the pyramid left this. I would like those people who talked about this to come with me. And I will take them personally to the rooms. First of all they say that only inscribed is the second room -- it's not true. ALL THE FIVE RELIEVING CHAMBERS ARE INSCRIBED. Number two, there are some inscriptions there that cannot be written by anyone except the workmen who put them there. You cannot go and reach there. It has to be the man who put the block above the other one to do that.

Similarly, I think the Bride of Christ will be lifted up (NASA) to Saturn in the Pre-Trib Rapture Teveth 5, 5765 (Dec. 17, 2004), 7 years after 5768 (1997/1998). That year was marked in the Modern Parallels. It was the 480th year since Martin Luther tacked his theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany.
Good clue: King Ahasuerus was in the 7th year of his reign when Queen Esther (meaning hidden, secret) was brought into his house royal in Teveth (Tebeth) (Esther 2:16).
--5768 + 7 = 5765, which starts Sept. 16, 2004. I now expect the Rapture Teveth 5, 5765 (Dec. 17, 2004), while all 5 morning stars are seen in order (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn). Saturn will still be in Gemini (sign of the Rapture), but at the border of Cancer (the holding place, i.e., symbol of Heaven). The "morning stars sang together" when God "laid the corner stone" of the Earth" (Job 38:6,7). The time of the Rapture seems like a perfect time for them to all sing together again. Dec. 17, 2004 is 2300 days (Dan. 8:13,14) from the Second Advent if it is Nisan 1, 5771 (April 5, 2011). Nisan 1 is when the sanctuary will be cleansed (Eze. 45:18,21).
6-19-04...Did the impact of a number of comets, thousands of millions of years ago, provide the Earth with its supply of water?...
Ian Wright is the principal investigator for Ptolemy, an instrument on Rosetta¹s Philae lander. By analysing with Ptolemy the mix of isotopes found in Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, he hopes to say whether comet water is similar to that found in Earth¹s oceans. Recent results from the ground-based observation of another comet, called LINEAR, suggested that they probably are the same....
A limestone relief stolen a decade ago from Isis Temple in Giza has been recovered. Nevine El-Aref attended its arrival from Paris
Under the Ministry of Culture's campaign to recover artefacts that have been removed from the country illegally, a limestone relief dating from the 26th dynasty arrived at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo from France early this week....
Culture Minister Farouk Hosni describes the relief as one of the most beautiful of the 26th dynasty. It features a man of the reign of Pharaoh Psammetikhos I turning to the left side and wearing a callote headdress. "He looks like a priest surrounded by columns inscribed with hieroglyphic texts," Hosni added.
Zahi Hawass, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said the relief, which is 35cm tall, 58,5 cm wide and weighs 30kg, was chipped out of a huge, fully decorated wall of the Temple of Isis behind Queen Henutsen's Pyramid on the Giza plateau during the last century.
Inside this temple is a stela with a hieroglyphic text recording that Pharaoh Khufu was the person who DISCOVERED the Temple of Isis and THE SPHINX (which was already there).
"According to this stela, the Sphinx could be dated from earlier than Pharaoh Khufu's reign," said Hawass.
He said, "In March I was in Israel for a week, over our Spring Break. I was mainly following up on research related to the "TOMB OF THE SHROUD" that Shimon Gibson and I discovered in 2000 while hiking in the Hinnom Valley south of Jerusalem. Quite accidentally we came upon a freshly robbed 1st century rock-hewn tomb. We called the Israeli authorities and they allowed our team to do the "rescue archaeology" that is carried out in such cases. To our surprise, in one of the burial niches (kokim or loculi) we discovered a decomposed corpse, but with remnants of the burial shroud still intact. B-14 dating established the deceased was from the early 1st century C.E., CONTEMPORARY WITH THE TIME OF JESUS! We had stumbled across the only example every found of a Jewish burial shroud. We also had the only example every found of Jewish male hair, as the skull still had the hair fairly intact. All of this is now being studied, and Dr. Gibson and I are going to publish a full academic report on the discovery next year. There are also some rumors in and around Jerusalem that the now famous OSSUARY with the inscription (whether all or in part authentic) "JAMES SON OF JOSEPH, BROTHER OF JESUS," MIGHT VERY WELL HAVE BEEN LOOTED FROM OUR SHROUD TOMB. IF SO, MIGHT WE HAVE COME UPON THE "JESUS FAMILY TOMB"! The possibilities are too intriguing to even imagine, but there is some fascinating circumstantial evidence that such might be the case" (emphasis mine).
Archbishop Celestino Migliore, permanent observer to the United Nations, addressed the General Assembly and thanked the president for “the adoption by consensus of this Resolution on the participation of the Holy See in the work of the United Nations, under agenda item 59, entitled “Strengthening of the United Nations system.”
He noted that “the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See is happily celebrating THE FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY of its presence at this Organization this year.”... (emphasis mine)

Reform of the UN is a “moral obligation,” Pope says.

Rev. 2:21 says, "And I gave her space to repent of her fornication (joinint), and she repented not." I should have known the "space to repent" would last 40 years. Forty means testing and probation. It looks like the "space to repent" will be over in 2004.
" The Holy See established itself as a Permanent Observer to the United Nations on March 21, 1964."
Now on July 1, 2004, the status of the "Holy See" is upgraded. Rev. 13:1 says, "and saw a beast rise up out of the SEA." The 10 regions of the world have already been picked. We are nearing the time when Rev. 13:5,6 will come true. It says, "and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (starting at the Pre-Trib Rapture). And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven." (i.e., ti blaspheme those that have just been raptured).
The Rapture date may be Friday, Teveth 5, 5771 (Dec. 16,17, 2004). Queen Esther was taken into the king's house royal in Teveth.
If the 1260 days (42 months) of Rev. 13:5 start Dec. 17, 2004, the end of the 1260 days will be Friday, 25 Iyar, 5768, May 30, 2008. Agape
