Science Fights Back

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

There is nothing wrong with presenting science fantasy purely for entertainment purposes. The problem is that some people, including Gordon-Michael Scallion, present science fantasy as historical fact.

On October 24, 2000, Mike Siegel of Coast to Coast AM radio interviewed Gordon-Michael Scallion. The program afforded Gordon-Michael Scallion the opportunity to promote his book “Notes From the Cosmos: A Futurist’s Insights into the World of Dream Prophecy & Intuition” (1997), which documents his claims of how the Great Pyramid was built, who built it, and why.

On this page, I present facts showing that Gordon-Michael Scallion’s “visions” are disproved by Egyptology and science. When people consider these facts, which are simple and straightforward, they will see that Gordon-Michael Scallion presents gross misinformation about the Great Pyramid. Given such grossly inaccurate “visions,” why should anyone take seriously any of Gordon-Michael Scallion’s predictions of where and when earthquakes and/or other natural disasters will occur? I also include below links to other web sites that discuss Gordon-Michael Scallion’s terrible track record with regard to predictions.

Summary of Gordon-
Michael Scallion’s “Visions”
of the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx

Mike Siegel, host of Coast to Coast AM radio, does not accept the orthodox theories of pyramid construction, and so he entertains alternative ideas to try to resolve the thorny issue of how the Great Pyramid was built. Mike Siegel stated his opinion during his interview of Gordon-Michael Scallion on October 24, 2000, “The greatest mystery on this planet is how the Great Pyramid was built.” Gordon-Michael Scallion advanced the following nonsense on Coast to Coast:

Gordon-Michael Scallion denies the veracity of the 4,500-year age for the Great Pyramid established by Egyptology. According to Gordon-Michael Scallion, the Great Pyramid was built over 12,000 years ago. In this regard, Gordon-Michael Scallion is largely parroting and elaborating upon the so-called ‘readings’ of the reputed psychic Edgar Cayce. According to Gordon-Michael Scallion, architects from Atlantis (the fabled ancient lost continent that has not been proven to have existed by modern science), priests from an area that is now part of Russia, and professionals from other lands were involved in the design and construction of the Great Pyramid.

Gordon-Michael Scallion asserts that a number of different Atlantean technologies were used for pyramid construction, including a special laser technology capable of quarrying and shaping pyramid blocks.

Gordon-Michael Scallion claims to have actually traveled backwards in time, during his time spent in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid, to witness the construction of the Great Pyramid itself. Gordon-Michael Scallion claims to have watched at a vantage point on the Giza Plateau as laser-machines were set up in the quarries associated with the construction of the Great Pyramid. Gordon-Michael Scallion says he watched the laser-machines cut blocks from the quarry walls. Gordon-Michael Scallion asserted that the blocks were perfected in the quarries and then flown to the construction site. Gordon-Michael Scallion indicated that another machine polished the casing blocks.

Gordon-Michael Scallion says he saw blimp-shaped aircraft fly many finished blocks from the quarry to the Great Pyramid at the same time. Gordon-Michael Scallion says that the blocks were stored until such time as they were set to build the tiers with another kind of Atlantean technology.

This block-raising technology, according to Gordon-Michael Scallion, required only one person for maneuvering a massive block into place. Gordon-Michael Scallion claimed that this equipment, which negated gravity, was an electrostatic device. Gordon-Michael Scallion correlated this device with a symbol of royal power well known to Egyptologists, the Shepherd’s Crook that was part of the royal ceremonial garb of the pharaohs.

Gordon-Michael Scallion related that the electrostatic technology allowed the pyramid blocks to be easily pushed up ramps, so that the slightest movement guided them. Gordon-Michael Scallion says that when positioning the stones became too difficult because of the height of the Great Pyramid, aircraft flew the remaining stones to the top where they could then be moved into place with the electrostatic equipment.

Gordon-Michael Scallion claimed that in recent history Latvian immigrant Edward Leedskalnin used the same technology to build Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida. Gordon-Michael Scallion claimed that Edward Leedskalnin looked for the Earth’s “energy vortex,” which he found and tapped. Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that Leedskalnin discovered the same energy system as the Atlanteans possessed, but used it differently.

Continuing with the construction of the Great Pyramid, Gordon-Michael Scallion claims to have seen a flying craft position a hollow bronzed capstone into position at the apex of the Great Pyramid. Gordon-Michael Scallion says that access panels in the capstone allowed priests to go in and out of it during the opening ceremony that took place upon the completion of the Great Pyramid.

Gordon-Michael Scallion related that once the capstone was placed, flying ships of all types carried in great numbers of people for the opening ceremony. Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that he saw the Sphinx at Giza, but that it had a different form than it does today. In other words, Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that the Sphinx also dates to about 12,000 B.C.

Gordon-Michael Scallion indicated that the Great Pyramid included a hinged door specially angled to track pulsars. Gordon-Michael Scallion asserts that this device was used to measure the wobble of the Earth, which Gordon-Michael Scallion claims so greatly concerned the Atlanteans. Gordon-Michael Scallion suggested that the Earth’s wobble might have caused the cataclysms that destroyed Atlantis.

Typical of Gordon-Michael Scallion’s doomsday scare tactics, by which Gordon-Michael Scallion earns his living, Gordon-Michael Scallion suggested that the wobble of the Earth occurring in modern times could signal the demise of modern culture.

As for the history of the Great Pyramid, Gordon-Michael Scallion claimed that the Atlanteans knew that the Great Pyramid would become submerged under water in a great cataclysm. Gordon-Michael Scallion claimed that the Atlanteans knew that it was just a matter of time before Atlantis would be destroyed by a great series of cataclysms, and so they built the Great Pyramid on an area of land that they anticipated would endure until the present time.

Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that the Great Pyramid was under water for a long time. Like some others, Gordon-Michael Scallion relies on salt crystals formed on the walls of the Queen’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid to substantiate the claim that the Great Pyramid was submerged.

Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that priestly adepts of the time of the Great Pyramid was built (about 12,000 B.C., according to Gordon-Michael Scallion), were able to transcend physical death. The Great Pyramid itself, according to Gordon-Michael Scallion, was built as a machine that stimulated plant growth and natural forces of various kinds. Gordon-Michael Scallion says that the Great Pyramid was designed as a power source, but that it was not used to power a city.

The Great Pyramid, Gordon-Michael Scallion maintains, was built for the purpose of time travel. Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that the Great Pyramid served as an observatory so that astronomers could watch the stars to determine the windows of opportunity for time travel. According to Gordon-Michael Scallion. the Great Pyramid was used to travel to points in our own galaxy and others.

Facts Prove Gordon
Michael Scallion Wrong

Gordon-Michael Scallion has apparently engaged in a very meager study of the Great Pyramid that allowed him to fabricate what amounts to a science fiction story. This tale is riddled with blatant historical and scientific flaws. Here are the facts:

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Age of the Great Pyramid

Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that the Great Pyramid is about 12,000 years old. As mentioned, with this claim, Gordon-Michael Scallion parrots the Edgar Cayce doctrine claiming that the Great Pyramid is an Atlantean monument built at about 12,500 B.C. Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that he received the same information as Edgar Cayce because he (Gordon-Michael Scallion) is like a clear radio channel able to get true cosmic knowledge.

Gordon-Michael Scallion’s success with this sort of nonsense depends upon no one being able to disprove his claims. Several popular authors capitalize on the nebulous nature of ancient historical knowledge and make similar fantastic claims. But the facts presented below show that knowledge about ancient history is not as nebulous as Gordon-Michael Scallion and some others suppose.

When presenting his science fantasy as fact, Gordon-Michael Scallion no doubt assumes he is on safe ground because his claim of an Atlantean origin for the Great Pyramid aligns with a study of the Sphinx by geologist Dr. Robert Schoch, of Boston University. Below we will examine the most fatal flaw in Dr. Robert Schoch’s theory of the prehistory of the Sphinx, We will also examine the serious flaws in the notion that the Great Pyramid is an Atlantean construction, rather than an ancient Egyptian project built about 4,500 years ago.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mortar Dating the Great Pyramid

In 1987, Mark Lehner, now of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, received funding for a mortar dating project from the Association of Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), the headquarters for the work of reputed psychic Edgar Cayce, This mortar dating project was designed to determine when the Great Pyramid was built. The A.R.E. members hoped to prove that Edgar Cayce was right about his claim of an Atlantean origin for the Great Pyramid.

The team expected that mortar samples from the Great Pyramid could be dated, and that this date would determine the age of the Great Pyramid. Mark Lehner, who championed the Edgar Cayce doctrine for most of his career and conducts archaeological work on the Giza Plateau, removed samples of the pink lime-gypsum mortar from various levels of the Great Pyramid. The pink lime-gypsum mortar appears here and there at all levels of the Great Pyramid, and Lehner climbed to the top in order to gather sufficient samples from various levels.

The samples dated up to 400 years older than the date of the Great Pyramid assigned by Egyptology. In other words, the mortar dating test shows that the Great Pyramid does not date to 12,000 or so B.C.

While it is true that the date does not align with the 4th Dynasty date of the Great Pyramid established by Egyptology, the difference of up to 400 years is probably due to problems related to the testing process.

Lehner suggested that the team use radiocarbon dating to test the mortar samples. But the mortar itself has been shown to have been made using sodium carbonate, which can skew the results of radiocarbon dating because of the carbon involved. However, it is possible that a different flaw I am unaware of in the test procedure yielded the odd test results. The bottom line is that the Great Pyramid dates nowhere close to 12,500 B.C. Furthermore, the archaeological record developed by Egyptology over many decades argues against an earlier date for the Great Pyramid.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Pyramid Age Architectural Design

Popular authors trying to make a case for a prehistoric date for the Great Pyramid often parrot each other’s claim that the Great Pyramid is a monument with little relationship to other ancient Egyptian architecture. They assume that the other pyramids are poor imitations of the Great Pyramid that were built by the Egyptians during dynastic times.

The following excerpt from “The Egyptian Pyramid Mystery Is Solved!” (Margaret Morris Books, 2000), shows that the Great Pyramid fits perfectly with the architectural progression of Egypt’s Pyramid Age:

“Rather than out of time and place, the Great Pyramid fits perfectly into the evolution of ancient Egyptian architecture. There was a steady increase in the size of blocks from the first pyramid, built for Pharaoh Zoser in the 3rd Dynasty, to the Great Pyramid. In general, workers built pyramids increasingly taller from the time of Zoser’s pyramid to the Great Pyramid. The fabulous corbelled walls in the Grand Gallery of the Great Pyramid have profiles like giant upside down staircases. They are more grandiose than corbelled rooms in previous pyramids. The elaboration suggests steady architectural progression. Large pyramids, including Snofru’s Red Pyramid at Dashur, immediately preceded the Great Pyramid. The Red Pyramid is very similar in construction to the Great Pyramid, also suggesting design progression. An enormous pyramid, the Great Pyramid of Khafra at Giza, immediately followed the construction of Khufu’s Great Pyramid. Khafra’s pyramid is almost as tall and massive as the Great Pyramid. Again, we are witnesses to architectural progression. Khafra’s Great Pyramid represents the beginning of an architectural decline that became increasingly dramatic as time went on.”

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The Age of the Sphinx

Dr. Robert Schoch’s theory that the Sphinx is a prehistoric monument is fundamentally flawed. Schoch stated in The Journal of Geological Education that the Sphinx weathers at the same rate as the masonry of the Giza monuments. However, geological studies of the Sphinx and the masonry of the Great Pyramid prove that this is not the case. The body of the Sphinx is made of weakly bound rock (the Sphinx is predicted to collapse within as little as 25 years), whereas the Great Pyramid masonry is harder and stronger (the Great Pyramid is predicted to remain standing for 100,000 years). The Sphinx can therefore weather far more easily than a great deal of Giza maasonry. For details see The Egyptian Pyramid Mystery Is Solved! Volume 2: The Solution.

Other flaws in the theory that the Sphinx is a prehistoric monument are presented in The Egyptian Pyramid Mystery Is Solved! Volume 2: The Solution, by Margaret Morris (Margaret Morris Books, 2004).

Scallion’s Quarrying
Method Defies Science!

Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that he watched blocks being cut from the quarries on the Giza Plateau associated with the Great Pyramid. However, Gordon-Michael Scallion’s claim comes into direct conflict with hard science and the archaeological record.

Block quarrying at Giza has long been one of the unsolved mysteries of the construction of the Great Pyramid. As strange as it may seem, the quarry walls at Giza exhibit relatively little evidence of block quarrying. Geologist Dr. Detrich Klemm of the University of Munich, in Germany, and his wife Egyptologist Rosemarie Klemm, conducted studies showing that the techniques used for block quarrying at Giza match those used by the Romans. The Romans were involved in restoration work at Giza after their occupation of Egypt (after 30 AD). For instance, inscriptions at the Sphinx attest to the restoration projects of a number of Roman emperors.

Egyptologist Dr. Dieter Arnold, of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, relied on the study by the Klemms for his comments about quarrying at Giza in his “Building In Egypt” (1991), which is the most current standard on ancient Egyptian construction used by Egyptologists. Arnold comments on the sort of crude tool marks that characterize the quarrying operation used for constructing the Great Pyramid.

Crude, random tool marks cover the walls of the Giza quarries. Dieter Arnold and the Klemms deduced that simple stone hand tools, like crude stone pickaxes and/or flint tools, must have made these marks. Similar crude tool marks are found in other Old Kingdom quarries, and in later Middle Kingdom quarries, too. Neater tool marks–but still made with rudimentary stone tools–appear in New Kingdom (starting in the 18th Dynasty) quarries, representing work carried out about a millennium after the Great Pyramid was built.

In other words, all of the quarries are characterized by marks made with primitive stone tools. Dieter Arnold adds that metal tools were only used for special purposes in the Pyramid Age, when all of the pyramids classified as great pyramids arose. Pyramid Age quarrying was performed with instruments like stone picks and pounding balls, and much later wooden levers came into use.

In short, if a special laser technology (today’s lasers are not good for cutting rocks) was used to quarry blocks for the Great Pyramid, as Gordon-Michael Scallion claims, the quarry walls would look more like those of modern quarries. In today’s limestone quarries, we can observe definite slices in the quarry walls and holes where blocks were extracted. In sharp contrast, as discussed below, the Giza quarries do not exhibit sufficient evidence of block extraction to account for the construction of the Great Pyramid. This seemingly strange fact is a little-known mystery of pyramid construction that has baffled researchers who have tackled the problem.

Scallion’s description of the method used to quarry blocks defies the archaeological evidence in the Giza and other ancient Egyptian quarries.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Scallion Could Not Have
Watched Blocks Extracted At Giza

Geological studies further show that Gordon-Michael Scallion’s claims about block quarrying at Giza are science fantasy. In the 1980s, geologists from Waseda University, in Tokyo, compared the blocks of the Great Pyramid with the quarries. They determined that the blocks of the Great Pyramid do not match the geology of Giza. They write that the blocks of the Great Pyramid are:

“hard and highly viscous [and that] characteristics of the limestone are different from those of the limestone of the site…”

The Japanese geologists did not have time to search for the matching quarry. The following excerpt from “The Egyptian Pyramid Mystery Is Solved!” covers this and other geological studies of this problem at Giza. Here is an excerpt:

“Various studies have shown the fundamental geological differences between the Giza quarries and the pyramid blocks. The first study was by M. Edme Francois Jomard (1777-1862), General Commissioner for the Napoleonic Scientific Expedition, with geologist de Roziere. They reported the difference in appearance between pyramid stone and Giza bedrock in Jomard’s “Description de l’Egypte” (1809-1830). The work includes a drawing of pyramid limestone, which is made of scrambled coin-like seashells. In contrast, scrambled shells do not characterize the quarry walls.

Later, Egyptologist W.M.F. Petrie spent many seasons at Giza studying the problem. The Giza quarries were not cleared in his day, but had he found matching limestone in the quarry walls, which are very high, or even at the fringes of the quarries, he would have been satisfied. He searched carefully for miles around the Giza area for a limestone outcrop that matches the pyramid blocks. He could find matching limestone only more than 15 miles away, across the river in the Mokattam hills.

Like the pyramid and temple blocks, the limestone bed Petrie found across the Nile exhibits fossil shells that are all jumbled. Jumbled shells are a striking characteristic of the pyramid building complexes, as shown by the drawing that typifies them published in “Description de l’Egypte.” In sharp contrast, fossil shells normally lie flat in sedimentary limestone, as they do in the Giza quarries.

Petrie concluded that many, if not most, pyramid and temple core blocks at Giza must have been transported from the Mokattam hills, on the east bank of the Nile. In “The Great Pyramid in Fact and Theory” (1932), William Kingsland, who did not always agree with Petrie, agreed:

‘The Core Masonry is composed of limestone of varying quality; some of it as pure as that of the Casing Stones, but a good deal of it is what is known as nummulitic limestone, as it contains large quantities of fossil shells resembling coins. It all appears, however, to have come from the Mokattam Hills on the opposite side of the Nile, from the quarries of Masara and Tura.’

It is widely recognized that the fine-grained casing blocks that originally covered the pyramids, eliminating their stepped appearance, matches the bedrock of the eastern limestone quarries at Tura. It is widely assumed that the rough nummulitic limestone building blocks, which make up 95% of the masonry of the Great Pyramid, come from Giza itself. The information above, indeed, poses a dilemma for Egyptology because it greatly challenges the amount of hauling of heavy blocks and beams involved in pyramid construction.”

Other geological studies at Giza confirming those mentioned above are discussed in “The Egyptian Pyramid Mystery Is Solved!”

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cayce’s Grotesque Human Hybrids

Before anyone considers taking Edgar Cayce’s so called ‘readings’ on Atlantis seriously, I hope that he or she will take a closer look at how preposterous they really are. Cayce’s so-called ‘readings’ are summarized in a book titled “The Egyptian Heritage: Based on the Edgar Cayce Readings” (1974) by Mark Lehner. As mentioned, for most of his career as an archaeo-Egyptologist, Mark Lehner championed the claims of reputed psychic Edgar Cayce.

Cayce claimed that the Great Pyramid was built by followers of a priest named Ra Ta in 12,500 B.C. Cayce claimed that native dwellers on the Nile (precursors of the Egyptians) had tails and feathered legs! Cayce indicated that many people of that time were grotesque hybrid beings, some with horse heads and human bodies. Some were sphinxes. When they were cleansed in the “Temple Beautiful,” their claws changed to hands and their tails fell away!

Cayce indicated that a great hall of records containing the knowledge of the Atlanteans exists under the paws of the Sphinx. Although Lehner endeavored for many years to prove the veracity of Cayce’s claims, Lehner has failed to produce any tangible evidence of an Atlantean civilization at Giza despite his many years of archaeological work on the Giza Plateau. The following link provides some quotes from Mark Lehner’s now out-of-print book the “The Egyptian Heritage: Based on the Edgar Cayce Readings.”

In short, careful Egyptological and scientific evidence shows that Gordon-Michael Scallion could not have watched machines set up in the quarries cutting blocks for the Great Pyramid.

To summarize, abundant, actual physical evidence proves that very primitive tools were used throughout history to quarry rock at Giza. Despite what is written in most books on the pyramids (which books are mostly out of date), the very limited evidence of block quarrying at Giza exhibits the crude levering techniques of the Romans and likely dates to Roman restoration projects. Evidence of laser-cutting would be conspicuous in the Giza quarries if millions of pyramid blocks had been removed from the bedrock by this means.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cayce and Scallion Conflict

As mentioned, Gordon-Michael Scallion claims he receives the same information as did Edgar Cayce because he is like a clear radio channel getting true cosmic knowledge. However, the “visions” of Gordon-Michael Scallion and Edgar Cayce clash dramatically with regard to how the Great Pyramid was built.

The conflict is clear to anyone considering the following portion of a question and answer session from the Edgar Cayce Library (from reading 5748-6). When asked how the Great Pyramid was built, here is Cayce’s answer.

Question 16. “How was this particular Great Pyramid of Gizeh built?”

Cayce’s Answer: “By the use of those forces in nature as make for iron to swim. Stone floats in the air in the same manner. This will be discovered in ’58.”

We see that Cayce claimed that massive stones floated in the air by way of natural forces, whereas Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that blimp-shaped aircraft flew the blocks and that they were moved manually up ramps by a builder using an electrostatic machine. The following link contains Cayce’s comments.

Coral Castle: Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that after leaving Egypt he was directed to go to Coral Castle, in Homestead. Florida. Gordon-Michael Scallion claims that Coral Castle was built with an electrostatic technology similar to that used to build the Great Pyramid.

In 1984, materials scientist Dr. Joseph Davidovits, founder of the Geopolymer Institute, in France, visited Coral Castle while on business in the U.S. I met with Dr. Davidovits during his trip and he described to me the postcards in the Coral Castle gift shop. They show Edward Leedskalnin with the equipment he used to build Coral Castle.

The fact is that Edward Leedskalnin lived near a junk yard. There he was able to get scrap steel to build simple devices for lifting blocks. Edward Leedskalnin’s building system has nothing to do with an energy vortex. The idea that Edward Leedskalnin levitated blocks is an urban legend repeated by Gordon-Michael Scallion.

The blocks of Coral Castle exhibit tool marks typical of those made with simple metal hand tools. They were not cut with super-technology devices.

The building system used by Edward Leedskalnin has nothing to do with the innovative technology used to build the Great Pyramid. The Pyramid Age (which falls into the Late Stone Age) Egyptians did not possess iron or steel or even bronze for building strong, metal lifting devices. The hardest metal known was copper, a relatively soft metal.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Hinged Door on the Great Pyramid

Gordon-Michael Scallion incorporates into his “vision” a discovery by W.M.F. Petrie, one of the founding fathers of Egyptology. Petrie showed that a hinged door originally sealed the Great Pyramid. Gordon-Michael Scallion imagines this door as a marvel of technology, designed to track pulsars and detect the wobble of the Earth.

Compare Gordon-Michael Scallion’s notions to the sober observations of Petrie. To show that the Great Pyramid was equipped with a huge pivoting stone door, Petrie drew evidence from Strabo’s “Geographica,” written at about 64 B.C. Strabo indicated:

[the Great Pyramid] a little way up one side, has a stone that may be taken out, which being raised up, there is a sloping passage to the foundations.

Petrie asserted:

A self-replacing door, which left no external mark, is absolutely required by the fact of the Arabs having forced a passage. Only a flap door, or a diagonal-sliding portcullis slab, can satisfy this requirement. A flap door is unequivocally shown to have been used at Dahshur. And Strabo’s description of the entrance agrees with such a door, and with no other. Such is the evidence for the closing of the Pyramids by doors; equally proving also the absence of any plugging up of the entrance passages.

Egyptologists think that a similar pivoting stone door opened and closed the Bent Pyramid, also built during Egypt’s 4th Dynasty. Egyptologists found sockets in sidewalls near its entrance that can accommodate door-pivots. It is up to Gordon-Michael Scallion to show how such a stone door can track pulsars and detect the wobble of the Earth!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Salt Crystals in the Queen’s Chamber

Gordon-Michael Scallion repeats the popular claim that the Great Pyramid was submerged in water at least to the level of the Queen’s Chamber. This assumption is made because of the thick layer of salt crystals on the walls of the Queen’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid and on some other interior walls.

It is true that during ancient times, the inundation of the Nile could bring fresh water (not salt water) up to the base of the Great Pyramid during a high Nile. But there is no legitimate evidence suggesting that the Great Pyramid was submerged in either salt or fresh water to the level of the Queen’s Chamber.

The late Dr. Edward J. Zeller, a geochemist and geophysicist who until his death was Director of the NASA-funded Radiation Physics Laboratory of the University of Kansas, in Lawrence, studied the problem of salt formation on interior walls of the pyramids. He considered the thick encrustation of salt in the Queen’s Chamber and elsewhere on interior walls of the Great Pyramid. Dr. Zeller concluded that the salt leaches from the limestone itself because of its high salt content, a topic further discussed in “The Egyptian Pyramid Mystery Is Solved!”

Conclusion: The new age movement is riddled with so-called psychics and popular authors who make a career of exploiting topics that they assume cannot be proven one way or another. I do not attempt to judge whether Gordon-Michael Scallion is self-deluded or dishonest. Anyone but the truly gullible who reads this page in its entirety will readily see that Gordon-Michael Scallion’s assertions represent his own personal fantasy that have nothing to do with reality.
