I'd like to point out that there are more than 3 pyramids at Giza.
Each of the big ones has two or three little ones in attendance.

The step pyramid is also in Egypt.

About the only "absurdity" that I've seen written about Stonehenge is
that you can do astronomical sitings using the stones, and can predict
solar eclipses using the chalk filled holes surrounding them. As far
as I can tell from reading about this stuff, you can use the stones
for astronomical sitings and those 19 chalk filled holes can act as a
calculator to predict solar eclipses. We can't know if the people who
built Stonehenge figured this out too, since they were pre-literate,
but it seems likely.

Sorry that I attached comments to the person you were writing to to
this message, but I haven't seen the original yet.

I'm not sure about Pyramid math, and never have been, by the way.
Some of the things you've mentioned are certainly real, especially the
proportions of the structure to itself. And I do find the angle odd,
now that you point it out.
