If they use monolithic boulders, the thing will turn into a heap of rubble within a century. Don't forget where they live....

I did asked some engineers to look into how quake proof the Gizamids are once .... practically indestructible was the answer, if a quake powerful enough with the Richter numbers to shake the G1 apart would also shake the whole Cairo delta off the map .... no worries.

Do earthquakes like 8 or higher on the Richter Scale ever occur in the Nile delta? I don't think so, but in Japan they know all about these shivers of Mother Earth.

Well, it is at least a bloody coincidence that that image is exactly the same as what Houdin predicted.

Ok, back to the future: just for kicks and giggles they will build a new pyramid... upside down.

lets assume youre right. and you know what they say about those who assume. explain the interior shaft purpose since noone else seems to know. given there were no bodies ever found in it nor egyptian hieros on any of the walls.  Posted Image

Like stonehenge and other egyptian tombs and buildings, the pyramids were multi functional. They were huge memorial stones to the pharaohs, burial places, and also astronomical devices. The chambers allowed the sun into the pyramid on special calendar days and smaller shafts allowed the light of special stars to shine into the centre of the pyramid on certain nights (might have been orion from memory) All the major pyramids and other monuments were laid out and designed as a star constellation  seen in the egyptian sky, so they also formed a ground based representation of the most important star group to egyptians.

Because the pyramids were opened and looted very soon after construction, despite all the precautions taken to prevent this, it was decided they were not safe as burial places for the pharaohs, who were then buried in hidden tombs in the valley of the kings (eg tutankhamun's tomb)

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

LOL how old are you?
Sorry, but what i said is both historical fact AND common knowledge. My thirteen year old students know all this from general knowledge and reputable documentaries as well as their history lessons. Only conspiratists and  von daniken believers cant accept how possible (and relatively easy) it is to build a pyramid. I mean they occur all over the world.

because its only fair i back up my reasoning;

Numerous people have demonstrated every conventional method (for both stonehenge and the Giza pyramid) and were unable to erect replicated blocks both of that size and weight let alone cut and quarry them, then haul them off from hundreds of miles away. In fact noone even attempted to try the last 3. If you have the demo proof of what you claim, people having successfully done this please post it. I need a good fall off my chair moment.


really? so in theory a 9,000,000,000 ton block can be hoisted up to 500 feet high using simple craftmans skills as you mention, a raft/boat a levy and/or rollers? was the house hoisted up 1/4th as high?




as youve just demonstrated.


how do you know how many times they measured? measured what? or cut? theres no blueprints. never any descriptions left detailing methods.


im not saying they were super human. im saying if you cant put out a fire dont light the match. the fact that people apply pseudo science in place of fully understand answers is sad.
The science of the pyramid bulders is well known and documented. and is the same science we use today,  hydraulics, leverage, reduction of friction, and the application of force intelligently. Heck you can even find graffiti and names of some of the the builders scratched into the stones. The work camps gravesites and other remnants of the labourers are found all around the area  The comment about measuring once and cutting twice is an old "techies" adage which every good tradesman would recognise. There is a lot of archaelogicla evidence showing how the blocks were cut, transported and put in place. This BBC article gives a good, simple, summary You can chose to disbelieve as you please and certainly some specific details remain unknown so far, but the evidences are clear. Ordinary humans built the pyramids aided by some very talented and educated egyptian architects priests etc  To say that egyptians couldnt have built the pyramids is a bit like saying the average iron/construction worker couldn't have built the empire state building. True, but thousands of them, following the schematics and instructions of educated planners and designers, and led by senior builders could, and did.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Hey sheep smart you asked this

so in theory a 9,000,000,000 ton block can be hoisted up to 500 feet high using simple craftmans skills as you mention, a raft/boat a levy and/or rollers? was the house hoisted up 1/4th as high?

Each individual block in a pyramid weighed only 2.5 to a maximum of 15 tons. Thats not really very much at all  As i said before I've moved material weighing more than a ton by myself, using nothing more than rollers and a lever(crow bar)The total weight of the biggest pyramid is only estimated to be 6 million tons But of course it was built one stone at a time. Where did you get your figure of  9 billion tons per block from? That is about one tenth of the total weight of the moon.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

We already know the answers to those! Though hopefully people in the future make decisions on empirical evidence and rationality. Its just human nature to want a good mystery though! That will never change. We'll have cool new technologies and find mysteries we didn't even know we needed to solve :)
