Is there something that got deleted by mistake between the following two paragraphs?

Another head scratcher is that the mass of the Great Pyramid is estimated at nearly six million tons and if one multiplies this by one hundred million, you get the approximate mass of the Earth. Furthermore, the exact geographical coordinates of the Great Pyramid of Giza is 29.9792458°N and the speed of light is: 299,792,458 meters per second. At first glance these facts seems far too accurate to be mere coincidence, but watch how easy all this is rationalized.

The Skeptical Tools Of Synchronicity And Serendipity
Firstly, ancient Egyptian builders measured in cubits, between 444 mm (17.48 inches) and 529.2 mm (20.83 inches) long. The meter measurement was not made official until the 1700s. Website MetaBunk argues: “If they actually knew about the meter one would expect them to use such unit for measurement as well. They simply did not.” It adds: “A matching sequence of five digits is not particularly strange or extraordinary. People have won the lottery matching far longer sequences than just five digits. Sometimes numbers simply match up without any connection whatsoever. So because this argument requires some forcing we can conclude that this is likely nothing but a coincidence.”

If Not I fail to see the connection, as in the first paragraph you are talking about weight and location but in the second about units of measure concerning lengths.

I'm eagerly still waiting to see "how easy this is all rationalized"

People have a tendency to focus on a "positive" coincidence, that inevitably happens from time to time by the laws of probability, and choose to ignore all "negative" coicidences which are the norm. Perhaps because we'd like to find some reason or cause in the chaotic system of the events of life. Simulacra and Gematria express a similar desire and of course the same is true of all occult arts. And sometimes one falls victim of his own prejudices, as perhaps is the case of Mark Twain. Or, it is just a matter of ignoring how probability works, as in the known example of the birthday dates coincidence of the people in a party.
