Pyramids are cool and all, but I see no point to their existance other than religious.

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

wow, thats a very convoluted tomb..........hmmmm...seems a bit simplistic, when one takes into consideration all the time and energy it took to build them.

but, i guess if the royal family had complete control of everyone's minds for hundreds of years, such a thing would be possible.

Discuss.
*sigh* We have been here many time before with the same tired "arguments". Is that poorly written and researched Time-Life series on ancient mysteries your "source"?

There is much evidence that suggests the Egyptians did not build the pyramids. For one, no existing dynastic records, paintings, or friezes show how the pyramids were contructed.
Nor or there any records showing saucers lifting the blocks. So what? How does a lack of a record PROVE that someone else built them? It only proves that there are a lack of records.

It is a fantastic structure even by modern standards, and yet even today we do not have the capacity to erect such a precise structure as the Great Pyramid.
Puh-lease! Any modern skycraper is magnitudes beyond the pyramids in engineering.

The fact is, we have no idea how the blocks were quarried.
Perhaps so; perhaps not. Either way our ignorance in Eqyptian mining technology hardly points to the stars.

Even more compelling evidence, is...
*Geological musings deleted*
At best this this points to a dating problem not a whodunnit problem.

This is only the tip of the iceberg.. and I skipped a lot of other facts.
We appreciate the respite.

Now let's mention some fun facts:
*Much numerology gibberish deleted*
Fun fact #1: There is NOTHING linking the pyramids to a star-faring race.

Whoever built the GIza Pyramids, encoded much precise mathematical, geographic, and astronomical information into the structures, far above the level and ability of the dynastic Egyptians...
In your opinion only. The fact that they exist says that it was well within the engineering level of these people who clearly demonstrated brilliance in farming, social structure, science, art, writing, etc.

Not to mention the Sphinx is nearly 10,000 years older than the pyramids..
Thanks for not mentioning this controversial "fact".

well ,they really are quite delicious...;)


oh, *ahem*.. uh yeah... pyramids, right :laugh:
i'd like to think that at some point in our human history we were capable of constructing such amazing things even if we were much less technologically advanced than we are now....  but until i see hieroglyphs of ufo's beaming around giant blocks, slaves dragging blocks or some equivilent proof, i won't be able to say for sure who i think built them.

The pyramids where built as a burial chamber for the pharao and he believed it would bring him life after death.

There is a pretty snazzy documentary made about the construction of the pyramids which explains in detail just about everything. the cgi is nice to.

i may have seen the one your talking about... although it seems like there's a new TV special every year explaining just how exactly the pyramids were built.

do they actually have any evidence backing up the graphics, or is it just a slickly animated, CGI pseudo re-enactment of how a group of experts think they might have been built??

There's so much hate and whining in this topic. We all need to take some shrooms and have an orgy to become friends.

Heh, I love thoze toothbrush and mouthwash commertials with the cgi graphics that show it works. I mean, if it's cgi, it must work just like they show you right? Hahaha! That only works for people like my mother.

No, I do my research from many credible Egyptologists.


There is much evidence that suggests the Egyptians did not build the pyramids. For one, no existing dynastic records, paintings, or friezes show how the pyramids were contructed.
Nor or there any records showing saucers lifting the blocks. So what? How does a lack of a record PROVE that someone else built them? It only proves that there are a lack of records.


I did not say saucers lifted the blocks, I said the Egyptians did not build them, because they existed 4,000 years or more before their first society.


It is a fantastic structure even by modern standards, and yet even today we do not have the capacity to erect such a precise structure as the Great Pyramid.
Puh-lease! Any modern skycraper is magnitudes beyond the pyramids in engineering.


Please explain. The pyramids have lasted thousands of years, through earthquake, flood, and any natural disaster you can throw at it, and they will likely be standing for many more thousands of years.


The fact is, we have no idea how the blocks were quarried.
Perhaps so; perhaps not. Either way our ignorance in Eqyptian mining technology hardly points to the stars.


I did not point to the stars in my post, the passages in the great pyramid do.

Now let's mention some fun facts:
*Much numerology gibberish deleted*
Fun fact #1: There is NOTHING linking the pyramids to a star-faring race.


Nor did I say there was, besides stating the fact that the chambers were pointed towards certain star systems.

Whoever built the GIza Pyramids, encoded much precise mathematical, geographic, and astronomical information into the structures, far above the level and ability of the dynastic Egyptians...
In your opinion only. The fact that they exist says that it was well within the engineering level of these people who clearly demonstrated brilliance in farming, social structure, science, art, writing, etc.


Then why no record of the construction of the pyramids, when they left many records of all their other great achievements? Surely such a feat as building the Pyramids would elicit some many manuscripts and data from their construction? There is none.


Not to mention the Sphinx is nearly 10,000 years older than the pyramids..
Thanks for not mentioning this controversial "fact".


You're welcome.
