Your work, obviously, may be disliked by many Egyptologists, ...February 13, 2008
- That's also a very interesting question. On those occasions that I've talked publicly about my hypothesis as distinct from, say, Chris Dunn's, I've been surprised that so little opposition to my idea has come from the Christian or Jewish communities, for example. I've received less than enthusiastic responses from some of those that one might call "New Age", but in those cases I've noted that the opposition is largely due to a misunderstanding of what I'm actually saying. Some of these people think I'm maintaining my position dogmatically, whereas anyone who has read my books will note I take great care to call it nothing more than a "hypothesis", and one which I myself find uncomfortable, largely since it challenges so much current scientific orthodoxy.
As for what I would say to them, I suppose I would say two things. First, they are right to be skeptical. One should maintain skepticism with any hypothesis, Chris Dunn's, my own, or anyone else's. However, I would also point out that I am trying to take seriously the implications suggested in some ancient texts, of the existence of a very sophisticated and weaponized technology. And the Great Pyramid, seen from that point of view, DOES possess an almost endless catalogue of amazing physical correspondences, and moreover, precision tolerances that one would associate with high technology and weaponry. So it seemed reasonable to me to look there for an entrance into exploring the wider issue of an ancient and sophisticated military technology and warfare.
