How would you go about doing it?? grin2.gif

Personally, I'd opt for #3......much easier of all of them, and probably the cheapest and quickest way of doing the job.

They had help from a higher form of being. Read some books, the ones with the extraterrestrial theories make much more sense than the books about humans building it with nothing basically. The pyramid is too precise. Over 4,000 years ago this took place...they had help from someone and it wasn't anything human.

Aliens exist...that simple

Definitely go with number 3.  If nothing else, it'll give people 5000 years from now a mystery to solve:  How did those primitives possibly possess the knowledge needed to make a pyramid like this?  It must have been made by Egyptians!

People in ancient times were definately not primitive.

I'd have to go with 2. Simply because a concrete Great Pyramid loses some of the charm...Reminds me of something that might be a tourist attraction in North Dakota...

As far as how the egyptians built them goes, I'll have to go with the arguement put forward by Red Dwarf...

Rimmer: What about the pyramids!? How did they move such huge blocks of stone without the aid of modern technology?

Liester: They had whips Rimmer. Massive, massive whips.

But number 4 sounds like so much more fun! tongue.gif

You don't have to believe that it will or believe that it wont - just that it's possible.

Today`s engineers can`t build pyramids like those great pyramids with all their modern technology, they cant even work out how the egyptians did it........ so I think we might need some help from some other more advanced beings. thumbsup.gif

I went with #2, I have only limited knowledge of engineering, but what you're doing is basically stacking  blocks.  I've been doing that since I was a kid.  So give me a nice crane and maybe a level and watch me go!

Nothing to see here.

I saw this thing on Discovery Channel that said they might have used kites and ramps to build them. I lean more towards other beings building them though.
