I think that ancient civilization built pyramids and othe structures. to impress other civilization that might come in contact with them..


and the fact our civilization is still impress by the pyramids means did they a good job



ancient civilization too thought it maybe more life out their so their lives was dedicated and showing how advance their civilization are


and we still do it to this day

thats why we send satellites into space to show other civilization how advance we are


pyramid= ancient satellites

that's not why we send satellites into space and that's not why the pyramids were built.

There's no doubt that one reason to build pyramids was to impress—but to impress exactly whom is the question. In the case of civilizations like Egypt and the Maya pyramidal structures were a visceral and profound reminder to common people of the power of the state. That foreigners were likewise impressed by them would've been incidental, albeit a certainty.

We are indeed impressed by pyramids to this day. How could we not be? But to understand exactly why they were built, one has to achieve a strong understanding of the civilizations which erected them.

To me the pyramid was a evolutionary design out of africa, there are sites there of stones forms in a small heaps going into a point,and maybe the frist thought of the pyramid was in the frist drawing in stone

Also a pyramid in architecture will last, as it falls in on itself on all sides, early builders did fathom this, it is strong against earthquakes, thus is a common shape around the world in ancient times!

yes some built pyramid to impress the gods

in all the pyramids were built to display the civilization advancement


and thats the same underlining reason we love sending things into space

Why ancients built pyramids ? Not only Egyptologists but everyone including you famished to right answer.  World wide starvation, particularily on this time. Who will be Joseph to feed , to sell the wheat for dying world ?
  PYRAMIDS ARE TEMPLES FOR SUN, GOD, OROMO, osiris, jesus. . .
   Pyramids are spiritual wheat garner for Joseph, Oromo. Temple by David, Solomon,OROMO.

Pyramids are symbols for tombs, underworld where Ra stayed, where Horus fights with Seth. A symbol of Egypt where Joseph sold, dead, buried and resurrected. Jesus, Oromo Joseph are the same , they are the king of Egypt, underworld, . . .
   No one comes to the Father , Divine Life without Jesus , Joseph, Oromo.

This is how it went down. A person was sitting in the sandbox (Giza) they picked up some sand while contemplating what they could build here. Meanwhile the person was letting the sand just fall from their hand whilst still deep in contemplation. some time after thought had eluded them and the sand had all fallen, the person stood to leave. Looking back where they had stood they noticed a pile of sand and although eureka was a foreign discriptive this person had a true eureka moment. And that was the story of why Egyptians built pyramids.... LOL

But at the same time we have to acknowledge that these stupid ancients who new nothing compared to Us and believed in fairytale stories of Gods roaming in the sky and space and descending to Earth and giving them boons,like in a comic strip were still capable of great feats that we are still not able to replicate.

Stupid?  Have you seen the Temple complex of Karnak?  The engineering and layout are absolutely fantastic.  They are still studied by college architects today.  The Ancient Egyptians were true innovators in the field of masonry engineering.  True, it did take them a while to master pyramid building, but even with something as relatively simple as the Great Pyramids, we have to marvel at the amazing amount of logistical expertise that must have been required to organize a project like that.

You would have to ask kmt_sesh about what, if any, gifts the Egyptians believed came from the gods, but as far as replicating feats goes, let's not get carried away.  The pyramids are impressive, sure, but not as engineering marvels.  A first year engineering student handing in plans for the pyramids would receive a failing grade for the lack of precision, redundancies, and lost labor in the construction.  He might also get a mark off for the foundation it was built in, but in all fairness, the Ancient Egyptians would have no way to determine if the plateau they were on was riddled with pockets or not, whereas we have devices that can be hand-carried to the field to give us a picture of the ground below.  We have lasers than can tell us the deviation of a 50-story skyscraper to within 2mm.  A 2.5ton limestone block that would have required about 5 workers to move by sled can be moved around today by one guy with a pallet jack.  If we start throwing in actual powered machinery, there is no contest at all.

The feats of the ancients are remarkable because they had to overcome obstacles that we have millenia of science to help us on.  It is on their shoulders that today's technology came to pass.  One should respect their efforts and accomplishments, particularly considering the time they lived in, but don't sully their reputation by treating them like incompetents who would have been incapable of accomplishing their own great feats without some "god" giving them some "gift" to make it easy for them.  The ancient Egyptians earned their reputation as master engineers through their own hard work, research, sweat, blood, and tears.  They deserve all the credit they get.

i shouldve said ancient structures instead of jus saying pyramid

of course it was numerous civilizations

some pyramids were build manily for the god

really these ancient structure were built because as human we feel we should be doing something
thats why slavery has been popular on this planet because...our life gives us energy we feel we should use it so we can continue to getting bless with
