Khazar:
Now we are discussing on an intellectual level...
What has been presented cannot be altered because it's there looking at us, it is a simple mathematical fact...
What we "do" know of ancient times is the division of a circle into 360 part became a function of mathematics...that's a fact also.
What we "do not" know for certain is when that event actually occurred and who were the designers...another fact.
To state, "as a fact", the "oldest known" record of a 360 degrees circle as being the "initial" use is nonsense because it had to be known and used before it was ever recorded...right?
The "illogical" statement is to claim that the pyramid builders "didn't" use a circle of 360 degrees because we have no "written" evidence, yet claim the assumed theories of Egyptologists as true without written evidence.
It is claimed that the two upper chambers of the Great pyramid were built for the king and his queen, yet there is not one/single/uno/1 piece of written evidence to prove it true.
You can't have it both ways in this game.
No written evidence of math and no written evidence of burial...therefore neither existed...that's logical isn't it?
And if you believe that an empty stone coffin is evidence of a burial then you have assumed the stone container as a repository for a deceased individual...without proof. And you must provide a reason why all of these stone containes were void of bodies...is it possible that was not their intended function?
I need an intellectual answer on that one...a possible yes or a definite no.
Answer here......yes...no.
As they say...facts speak volumes...and they also say an illustration is worthy of a thousand words.
Soooo...the builders chose the easy route...they elected to illustrate.
Returning to the 360:
Now that I have provided a mathematical association of pi and the location of the Kc it "indicates" a "high" possibility of the builders being aware of and using a circle divided into 360 segments.
To claim this being false requires the input of an unbiased mathematician who is verse in "probabilities" and it will be discovered that it indicates, "without question", that the AE understood the number pi and used a 360 degrees circle. Unfortunately, my friend here in town confirms it true, but his association with me makes it biased.
For me to continuously struggle with the, non-mathematician, non-believer or die-hard gets us nowhere. It's a futile and pointless battle between...I'm right...you're wrong.

I hope you now understand the futility of this question.
“Read” the following topic to the "very" end then get back to me...I'll be happy to assist in anything you question.
