I've heard that newly completed pyramids were covered with a veneer of highly polished white marble. Can you imagine how spectacular they once looked?

the great pyramid is incrediable, each side is almost angled perfectly 90.3, 89.7, 90.1, and 89.9 degrees. The shortest and tallest side is a difference of only 8 inches out of a total 9063. And each side is almost at perfect directions. A ture east, west, north, and south only containing a flaw of 0.015 percent. Not to mention this is over 4,500 years. This must have been a great civilization

Ay ay ay...this is NOT the great pyramid! This is Chefren. The great pyramid is Cheops.

this is alien work, not human.

If this alien work, what about the other 93 pyramid all over the country?? and eedless to mention about the great temples along the nile, like Karnak, Luxor and Abu Simbel with all fascination of architect they have??? We can only talk about aliens when we have a global approval about their existence, and therefore, their capabilities.

I don't think it's aliens who build this... that's just stupid

the greatest energy generator ever made by MAN. that is not quarried stone. that is poured concrete.

no, its not concrete. when it was first built, like fetch farley said, they were covered with highly polished marble, fitted together so tightly thta one could no climb up the pyramid. the blocks were so tight that a knife blade could not be stuck in between. it shone like a mirror and it was said that one could actually see theirselves in the reflection from teh sides
