"The general outline of how to go to the moon was established before JFK's challenge and long before the Saturn V went into production."

Not true, and 'generally' is not knowing how, heck it took them years of failure before learning enough to put the gemini program into action, but still the why do it (reason) came long before the 'how to do it' was learned.

"You don't build a 6 1/2 million ton pyramid and then decide what to do with it. You've put a very heavily laden cart in front of a horse."

Exactly my point, when you research the origins of pyramids, how they evolved over time and the engineering used in each case we can illustrate the advances in materials, craftsmanship and engineering. I assume your inference is in regard to Khufu's pyramid... a pyramid that had the benefit from generations of pyramid builders dating back to Djoser or perhaps even earlier. It's that linear span of time that provided them the knowledge and experience to construct Khufu's pyramid, but all along the way, from the first time, the initial reason of why building a pyramid was required to satisfy their needs was arrived at long before Khufu's pyramid was built. So in my view, the 'why do it' is the progenitor of pyramid building not the 'how to do it'. Understanding how they built Khufu's pyramid will not explain why they built it.
