Very impressive, much more so than they are in glamoured up post card type photos.

They still wonder what the purpose of the pyrimads is. They are alligned with the contellation of Orion and seem to have a bigger purpose than just being tombs for pharoahs. Why are there so many rooms in the pyramids that we cannot seem to find out what purpose they had. In the pyrimid of Cheops which was built long before cheops was even born, they found an empty grave...with no heiroglyphs at all(see the book Fingerprints of the gods), that's really weird because normally a tomb would be full of heiro...

Breathtaking!! just imagine the genius architect involved. These are not meely stacked piles of gigantic stones weighting 2-3 tons each, but also, the old Egyptians made provisions while building these monuments, which nobody knows how, for the rooms, galleries, paths inside each pyramid!!!!

I still can't accept that the Egyptions built these things. Even using the most advanced technology and materials today sciens and architects can't recreate them. I think it could be a similar case as with the Sphinx, where they were actually built before the Egyptions or at least they had help from someone else

Don't under estimate human will.

The Giza pyramid was 365 feet tall and is said to be built in only 20 years. The quarry that they mined the rock from was over 1000 miles away. Think, this was before the wheel was invented. How did they do it. Some archeologists say that they would have to place a 1 ton brick every minute and a half every hour of everyday for 20 years? possible? did they have help from some other life form? Will we ever know?
