Email him for the book as i previously mentioned. You link to what you label a 'rant' but i see a theory being dismantled rather effectively. Ted is not trying to please a publisher or make money so he gets casual in some of his language. But the design engineering stuff? He knows the lingo as a professional and it shows. The clean fresh ground water was the goal of the pump that was the Great Pyramid. Ted actually likens it to particular type of oil platform.mamuso wrote:Ztifbob, his response to your message seems to me a clear straw man technique. I think he sees it as a rival theory... I've also read his rant on another pump theory, Kunkel's I think, (http://www.solomonseries.com/freedownloads15.htm). That shit happens when people try to live on "science".
A ram pump is very simple, in each cycle it uses the potential (gravitational) energy of some water to lift less water to a higher level. The "prime mover" postulated is the Nile river. Not a small power source indeed.
I can understand why he says Cadman points to no power source, although its pretty clear that Cadman purposes Nile as the source: he purposes groundwater as its water source instead for some theory I don't know (cause it's unclear to me how to get his so called free ebook).
I would love to see a real independent research on these two hypothesis.
BTW, Ztifbob, can you point me to his (repeatedly mentioned in the web but hard to find) free ebook? The website is ludicrously bad designed and the content really scatterd around. I'm interested in his theory, as I've learned to ignore rants and to go to the real info and ideas (if you have read Miles Mathis you know what I'm saying).
Yes, i,agree, a messy website but i addressed that in my first post here, he hasn't been able to keep in properly maintained while in his current medial predicament...cut him some slack it's all free.
Ted's version of the water pump hypothesis is practical & predictive. He shows us & tells us where other chambers must be found for him to be right. He tells us how they did it very clearly, and points out the abundant evidence. And the CAD drawings are superb & vastly more technically detailed than any others out there.
For me he is all about the hows of Giza. His ideas beyond the 'hows' of the Pyramids are contrarily speculative, and probably not provable by anyone, but are added to flesh out the story.
