1.Great pyramid was monument of science

In a manuscript (preserved in the Bodleian Library, and translated by Dr. Sprenger) Abou Balkhi says, "The wise men previous to the flood, foreseeing an impending judgment from heaven, either by submersion or by fire, which would destroy every created thing, built upon the tops of the mountains in Upper Egypt many pyramids of stone, in order to have some refuge against the approaching calamity. Two of these buildings exceeded the rest in height, being four hundred cubits high, and as many broad, and as many long. They were built with large blocks of marble, and they were so well put together that the joints were scarcely perceptible. Upon the exterior of the building every charm and wonder of physic was inscribed."

Massoudi says that on the eastern or Great Pyramid as built by these ancients the heavenly spheres were inscribed, "likewise the positions of the stars and their circles, together with the history and chronicles of time past, of that which is to come, and of every future event."

Another Arabic fragment, claiming to be a translation from an ancient Coptic papyrus,gives a similar account of the origin of the pyramids, and states that "innumerable precious things" were treasured in these buildings, including "the mysteries of science, astronomy, geometry, physic, and much useful knowledge."

So, too, the famous traveller, Ibn Batuta, says, that "the pyramids were constructed by Hermes, the same person as Enoch and Edris, to preserve the arts and sciences and other intelligence during the flood."


2.Tomb theory-wrong

We know now that this pyramid was built during the reign of Cheops, in the so-called Fourth Dynasty of Egyptian Kings. But it is nearly as certain that Cheops never was entombed in it. The account given by Herodotus is sometimes quoted in proof that he was, but it is clearly a misunderstanding. That account says that Cheops was buried in some subterraneous place where "the Nile water introduced through an artificial duct surrounds an island." But there is not a single opening either in or under the Great Pyramid which is not far above the highest Nile level.
Diodorus says positively that Cheops was not buried here, but in some obscure and unknown place. For six hundred years after Al Mamoun broke open this pyramid the Arab writers who tell of the feat, say not a word of any human remains or indications of sepulture being found. Shehab Eddin Amed Ben Yahiya, on the contrary, says that "nothing was discovered as to the motive or time of its construction." Massoudi tells of certain findings, such as colored magic stones, columns of gold which nobody could move, images in green stone, and a c*** with flaming eyes, which stories none but a Moslem can believe; but says not a word of the finding of any man or any evidence of the use of the place as a tomb.

3. „Book of masters“
On one Croatian forum I found quote from so called „Book of masters“
„and so in all the teachings of the Egyptian mysteries, visible light was a shadow of the astral light and wisdom of ancient land- measure of truth.“
Since I translated this, I dont know would you recognoize it even if you aware of it. But I just want to see is such thing exist and does it say what does it say.

4. Questions

4.1. Since Im not good with Internet exploring, obviously, can someone confirm Massoudi, Abou Balkhi, Ibn Batuta and „Arabic fragment, claiming to be a translation from an ancient Coptic papyrus“? Are they for real? Did they wrote that? Can someone know works, perhaps chapthers of these quotes?

4.2. If so, isnt this proof that Great pyramid isnt tomb at all but monument for physics, history, astronomy and geometry? Im mean Arabs in the end move external part of GP. Why dont we believe them? They move it. They saw it. Why would they lie?

Hmm, and why would a report dating 3000 years after the building of the Pyramids made not having a clue about ancient writing be any more reliable than those of Herodotus who claimed that one of the murals showed the number of cabbages the Pharaoh had to buy to feed the worker building the thingy?

Besides, there was no universal flood, especially not in Egypt since memorial times. Unless somebody remembers something the Dinos experienced.

Hey Questionmark,

I dont want that this thread move into was there flood or not. Maybe beside what Herodotus wrote there is more. Maybe Arabs didnt understand heiroglyphs but saw geometry drawings, stars, suns...Also maybe oral tradition helped. Perhaps some of Arabs did break hieroglyphs. Anyway I started this thread for questions 4.1. and 4.2.
To me it is amazing texts if they are true. Which sadly I still dont know. But if they are, then...many questions can be raised. Many.

edit: whats the difference if it is 10 000 y.o. when Arabs saw it? I wish they didnt move it so that we can see it. Imagine, you know how is big GP. There cant be possible way that was only mural what Herodotus said.

Maybe 3000 years after they built it there was still writing about it.  Maybe the process that
confused the whole thing wasn't as advanced at that time.  Maybe there was all sorts of evidence
and a willingness to believe what previous people had actually said.

People did not eat cabbage and then drag stones up ramps. It is impossible.

Men fear the pyramid, time fears man.

It is my understanding that no 'mummies' have ever been found in a pyramid. So what evidence is there that these monuments were tombs? That the pre-eygptian people built mud pyramids for burials? Is that sufficient?

Well, that is quite simple, the Arabs the OP talks about are those who occupied Egypt carrying their faith around with a sword, that would be after 639. Before 570 (and I don't want to sound racist but just pointing out facts) the Arabs did not even have a written language. In either case we have ~ 2500-3000 years after the thingies were built.

And we can easily see what Herodotus wrote by loading his book into the kindel and reading it.

Last, but not least, without the Rosetta stone nobody could break the glyphs, been tried and all kind of funny results came about (like defining the Giza complex as Joseph's granaries).

Would they have had the stone, and it should have survived their fanaticism (most likely it would have gone the way of the remnants of the Great Library) we would know about it, just as we know about everything about their science (forcibly as Europe screwed it up big time by neglecting it after the crash of the Roman Empire).

I wonder even if they were tombs, why dont believe to Arabs when they say what they say? Why GP couldnt have dual purpose?
But then again Greeks wrote that isnt tomb.

You mean like the Arlington cemetery?

Giza was a burial ground since the stone age, way before any pyramids and way after any pyramids (in effect until the 21th dynasty around 943 BC). So why would the AEs build anything but tombs on the cemetery?

al-Misri in 7 century and especially ibn Wahshiyya in 9 century partly translated hieroglpyhs.
Also Champollion said it wasnt hard at all.
Also can you rather give accounts of Arabs instead? Also I wonder what these guys al Misri and ibn Wahshiyya spoke about Egypt.

Hm, Thats good question. I would probably give better answer if I understand their burial process, mummifing, tombs and life after death. Perhaps, from this amateur point, they wanted to send all known data with Khufu? Perhaps to preserve data on tombs because they were sacred?

I could tell you something about it if any of his writings regarding hieroglyphs survived, the problem is that they did not. There are more who claim to have gotten deep spiritual insight into the Egyptian hieroglyphs before the 19th century, sadly all those of whom we have written constancy knew as much about them as I do of the duties of the Pope, which amounts to about 0. And the Pope is no accident, because it was all kind of "spiritual" seer who claim this knowledge of which they have failed to provide evidence.

ibn Wahshiyya could decipher the demotic Egyptian writing, which did not exist yet at the time of the Pyramids. It was conceived around 650 BC (or about 2000 years after the Pyramids) and used by the Coptic until the Arab invasion. Not very helpful either to determine what the GP was.

Here we are opening quite a new can of worms, but the first intentional mummified body we know of dates from around 3500BC and was partially recovered in Hierakonpolis. That would put mummifying attempts about 800 years previous to the GP. The first successful mummification ( we know of) dates from 3400 BC, or still 700 years before the GP. At that time the procedure was still quite primitive though.

The practice seems to go back to the stone age in Egypt.

Questionmark,

Could you perhaps know about Massoudi, Abou Balkhi, Ibn Batuta and „Arabic fragment, claiming to be a translation from an ancient Coptic papyrus“?
Do you know in what book they spoke about it, or maybe chapters?
