    actually have a lot of evidence that tells us how many of these things were done.

    Take, for example, the Great Pyramid of Giza, built for the Pharaoh Khufu. Archaeologists have excavated the quarries where the limestone blocks were built. They have found the  kitchens with huge ovens for baking bread to feed the workers. They have found the copper chisels used by the masons to shape the stones, they even know the chief architects name, Hemiunu. Yet, most people have no knowledge of this information.

    This is the problem I am talking about. It is the fault of archaeologists that this information is not common public knowledge. Participating in debates with the yahoos would provide a forum for educating people, while at the same time debunking the "aline theorists"

    That is why I advocate for engaging rather than ignoring.
