so please pass the Tinfoil Hat.
I VISIT AND READ A LOT
of cranks. Many modern, some so old they were cranks before cranks were even invented. I put my interests down to the ‘wotif’ syndrome. You know, the old ‘wotif this rubbish is actually real‘?
THEN I WEIGH FACT
against supposition. Lots of those about, so take your pick. All welcome—whoever controls the purse shrieks the loudest and establishes The Only Truth.
TO NOT DIGRESS
I’m fascinated by ancient stuff. Especially the Pyramids of Egypt and South America (we won’t mention the colossals of China ‘cos the Chinese are frantically hiding theirs under artificial forests); and, of course, ancient stonework that if the reports are true quite simply shouldn’t be there.
SO I INDULGE
(every man can be excused a harmless hobby, no?) by pondering enigmae put up by cranks such as Graham Hancock, Dr Schoch (geologist who re-dated the Sphinx and so
embarrassed outraged The Establishment*), Bauval, Jimmy**, J A West, and oodles of others.
SOME GREAT BRAIN
looked at a few of the works the above cranks were investigating and noted that some of the markings on some of the stonework had patterns suggestive of the appearance of worked plastic stone; ie concrete or similar. One (Davidovitz) even suggested that the Giza pyramid blocks were cast in situ. To each his own, but the commonality here ‘is appearance of worked plastic stone’.
BETTER MINDS THAN MINE
have looked at the finish of some of the stoneworks (even the great Petrie was impressed) and declared that zillions of slaves, whips, and long skinny ramps aside … the precision of the emplaced stonework and associated artefacts precludes oafs with stone pounders (and/or copper chisels).
the less than credible “little green men from beyond the stars” and keeping our problems in house: how?
reading Fawcett’s book, located my own copy, and had a quick blitz. Fascinating stuff, but I was delighted to quickly find the reference I was after—
—and if you read on from there you’ll find a wee anecdote about nephew’s silver spurs eroding to diddley-squat as he hoofed through some low bushery.
It could of course be a huge giggle at my expense, no? But if true would answer a lot of questions—
Ooops … more words than most people like, so I’ll draw a halt here.
