I believe I have conclusively determined that the pyramids of Egypt were used to catch rainwater. Can anyone refute this?>

I'm not sure that I even know what you're talking about. Perhaps it might be easier to understand and refute if you provided an example of this "theoretical" plumbing.

If it rained one inch on the Great Pyramid and the courtyard that surrounded it, about 700,000 gallons of water would be captured around the pyramid withing the enclosure wall. Where would the water go?

Hey, weren't you the one who didn't know that the Seila pyramid was a smooth sided pyramid? Prepare to be schooled again.

Go to youtube and type in Pyramid Rain Catchment Theory for a superb example. Thanks

And maybe you should first ever visit a school before you posting somewhere... Who sets up the allegations has to bring the evidence, not vice versa.

Sir, you demeanor is horendous. Its called debate, not hate. The evidence is obvious actually. Where does all the water go when it rains on a pyramid? It is captured by walls that surround it, then it flows into the so-called mort. temple. Then it flows into the causeway (aqueduct), which leads to a giant cistern called a valley temple. That seems obvious to me. Have you been to a school where they teach you to believe whatever they tell you? I wonder if you've ever done any independent research at all.

You've obviously never seen a "rainy day" in Egypt. Otherwise this embarrassment would not even surfaced here... Amounts of rain as they would be needed for your ridiculous scenario, there are, if any, every few hundred years. And what is this all about? Water is always available. There is this river, I think it is called the Nile...
