This carbon-dating evidence, I think, adds the final piece to the jigsaw, as it shows scientifically that the Great Pyramid was built in time for the transit of Thuban across the celestial north pole. The pyramid builders' motives may be open to discussion but
scientific evidence tells us their purpose. The builders had a target - Thuban - and a target date: 2787 BC
. If they missed this, there would not be another chance to hit a remote star system with a ray of light for many thousands of years. Other aspects of the Giza mystery may be contentious and mired in controversy but these astronomical facts are simple and unrefutable as they are based on solid scientific information. The builders of the Giza Pyramids knew, far ahead of time, that Thuban would be on the celestial pole and they planned and built those pyramids in time for that celestial event.
There are logical consequences that arise from this evidence, consequences about our past and life in the universe which are fascinating to explore. Many of them will be covered in my graphic novel
, along with other evidence I’ve unearthed. Minor notes:
Some readers may point out that the academic literature states that the northern passage of the Great Pyramid is slightly lower than 30 degrees. In response to that comment, I would recommend they study Gantenbrink's detailed surveying of the passages and the slight uplift recorded at the end of the passage as it exits the pyramid.
