Earlier today I invited Philip Coppens to email me the response to my blog post about his claim that Imhotep receive "non-human" assistance in building Djoser's step pyramid for publication on my blog. Instead, Mr. Coppens posted his lengthy statement as several comments to my previous blog post. (Perhaps he does not trust me to copy and paste his words correctly?) Since this requires much more work on my part to format for the blog, I have decided to forgo my original plan to run his comments and my own as separate posts. Instead, I will run them in parallel as two columns. Mr. Coppens' comments appear at left, and my comments are in green at right. Please read my original post first to understand what follows.
I am an author and researcher focusing on pop culture, science, and history. Bylines: New Republic, Esquire, Slate, etc. There's more about me in the About Jason tab.
