MY ‘CYNIC’ LICENCE
I keep looking at crank sites and pondering the good old ‘wotif’.
assure us that you cannot carve granite with copper chisels.
You might, they say, make a dent (i.e. slightly scar an otherwise immaculate finish). Demonstrations of attempts to saw through granite (and/or limestone) with copper or bronze saws (even lubricated with wet sand) are miserable failures.
So if you’re asking wot the above is, it’s part of this,
ostensibly an ancient artefact from olde Egypt.
There’s things about it I’d love to know
Okay then, all ye Egyptologists and knowledgeable experts on ancient stuff—is it a hoax, or modern?
GIVEN the tool-ware you offer … how could they make such a beast?
a bit differentish—
—this is the first image of this ilk I’ve ever seen where the dude in the waggon isn’t about to take his own head off. Boom boom! Not only that, he holds the bow with his right hand as was ever natural for me as a kid.
I’d love to know how they actually did make those pyramid things (not how modern experts definitively state they think they might perhaps have). And in similar vein: I really, really, really don’t want to hear about ‘space aliens’ or Annie Nookies.
THE MORE I GET
into it the topic of ancient artefacts the worse my afflictions become. If I were an American I guess I’d be from Missouri.
I just do NOT believe that those many millions of tons of granite and limestone were shaped by men with balls of rock* or copper chisels.
“After you’ve eliminated the dross,” we’re told, “whatever’s left must be the truth.” Brrrrr. If we eliminate hundreds of thousands of well-whipped slaves with rollers and copper chisels, and impossible saws, and space aliens … what’s left?
This wee garden gnome (above) was cut from the living rock for a purpose—but never properly finished. How were they going to move it? How DID they move the 400 ton and 800 ton blocks from here to (say) the Temple of Jupiter?
Too heavy to lift, the blocks would then have been dragged from the quarry, probably using a capstan, a kind of human-driven winch—though the possibility of a sledge is also under discussion …
