I leave the radio program Coast to Coast AM on at night: because I have the knack of waking when George wants to bury a “topic.” In the last 10 minutes of Thursday – October 15, 2015 and Dr. Heather Lynn interview she hit upon a subject that awakened me: because that topic got me “banned” from ever again being a guest on Coast to Coast. A subject that I was not allowed to present on his program (http://www.coasttocoastam.com/guest/west-howard/6816). If you were listening to Professor, Heather Lee’s interview you notice how quickly George got agitated and then came against her statement about barges used to transport the stone blocks for the pyramids? He flatty it was stated that he thought “it was not feasible”. Why? Because the Scholarly World is not the only group that recoils at the thought of being proven WRONG!
“The Pyramid was twenty years in the building
and the Machines to lift the stone were made of wood.”
Twenty years to transport 2.3 million blocks. “Machines” are translated from the Greek word machana. Because, if you go to any common Greek Lexicon, it will say that “machana” is defined as a machine. However, if you look at words with similar root-words you will find they are defined as “ship captains and seamen”. Furthermore, if boats are not machines; what are they? Crocodiles?
I am sure you have heard of the Egyptian god, ‘Horus’ in the specific form of Herupakhered: where he is depicted as young Horus standing on the backs of crocodiles. Heru-pa-khered is defined from ancient Coptic Greek root-words as: Heru: the Coptic form of the Greek word: “HER” and is defined as “the tool of strengths.” This root word is used in the Greek god/man, Her-cules; pa, awesome accomplishment or to brag; khered, earth or stone moving.
The vast majority of the stone blocks were transported by boats (machana) envisaged as crocodiles. Not transported on rollers over land, though the blocks were on rollers as they traveled in the boat. These barges transported numerous stone blocks and were powered by two oar propelled boats. The stone barge and its propulsion unites would look like a representation of a crocodile with swimming legs (oars) and a segmented back (stone blocks) swimming down the river: when looked on from the lip of the valley.
There is also a bas-relief sculptor at Deir el Bahri that shows the Queen/Pharaoh Hatsheput to Punt1. At that temple there are also stone carvings that shows several vessels: seventy feet long by seventeen feet wide and five feet deep with fifteen oars per side. With a total of thirty to sixty oarsmen for propulsion and two more for steering.2 During that same time period large barges were also built for transporting stone blocks down the Nile River. Stone carvings show one such vessel with two Obelisks end to end, weighing hundreds of tons. A vessel that must have a been at least two hundred feet long. Herodotus wrote of the Great shipping fleet on the Nile. At Al-Lisht site, Sesostris I, had large wooden boats near his burial enclosure. We also know that granite blocks were floated down from the Aswan area along the Nile.
The Great Pyramid has several boat pits around its base: because, machana were so important to that structure. One boat found next to the Great Pyramid is now in ‘the Boat Museum‘ nearby, and that boat is 140 feet long. The machana was found in a pit sealed with huge limestone blocks. A boat that indicates that the pyramids and boats have a connection. George does not want this information addressed on “HIS SHOW”. So “if” you want to sell a lot of books and be one of his favorite guest? DO NOT bring the subject of “boats and the pyramids” up!
However, if you are indeed open to anomalous evidence and want “The Rest of the ‘Dam’ Story” (not damn) about boats and the Great Pyramid you can get a copy of my book, Locked Gates, The Riddle Lords Secrets. http://www.amazon.com/Howard-West/e/B0056I4B9M/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0
