99.9%. I'm still hopeful. 

Hopeful of what?   Space "brothers" coming to save us?   Jesus hasn't come yet either.  Maybe we need to save ourselves.

and it's a myth that we don't know how their built. Dirt ramps.

It is not a myth. If you read any Egyptologists, such as Verner or Lehner, there are many theories how pyramids were built that have been offered over the years with admittedly no consensus. Even the ancient Greeks could not agree. Herodotus said they used machines, Diodorus claimed ramps. While ramp systems are the most popularized, as envisioned going from bottom to top in some fashion, in practice they are also the least likely. The DE certainly used ramps for various applications, including construction of pyramids, but they would only have been practical if raised to a modest height on the base before another system would need to be used. Ramps were made of rubble, quarry/stone working detritus, with mortar and/or clay.

Seriously dude, we can't know on certain methods of their construction, we can only guess at the different way things were accomplished.  As far as not using slaves based on living quarters?  How does that mean they didn't use slaves?  It doesn't.  It may have been a religious obligation on the part of the laborers is another guess, but only a guess.  Can't know. 

I beg to differ Sir. It would have been difficult to build with modern equipment. The size, weight, and precision placement of these massive stones would have been impossible to build by man power alone. 
 

It isn’t the living quarters that are the problem. It’s that men, even with ropes and logs, are not moving several hundred ton stones and piling them on top of each other by human strength. 
 

We have all seen the possible re-enactments of how people of that time could have done it. It’s BS. Like I said, the way it was built, and in the location it was built, would, heck it wouldn’t even be worth the effort to try today. Not without shifting the entire operation to concrete to build the structure 

First you’d have to build roads to get the materials to the site, on top of sand no less, that were several feet thick. You’d have to have several powerful trucks with extremely long trailers, working in unison to move most of these stones. If that were even possible considering the size of the blocks in the first few layers. Then several massive cranes, with counter weights so heavy it would boggle the mind how they even move to begin with, to lift them on and off trucks, and put them into place on site. And we haven’t even begun to talk about the prep work to prepare the ground to hold this weight without giving an inch under the entire base. The wise man doesn’t build his castle on sand. 

 

And we are only talking about the first 2-3 layers at best. Then what?? You have to build steal structures around the base so strong as to hold these cranes. Again, cranes with counter weights so heavy they could lift several hundred tons, without falling over, that again would take a monumental effort to even bring to the location. Even if it wasn’t that far away. 
 

Oh BTW we are talking about massive stones that were cut with exact precision. So we would have to have some type of wet stone cutting operation, either on site, or at the place of the materials origin, that would require probably huge diamond blades and hundreds of gallons of water, in the desert, just to keep the blades cool as they cut these blocks. All 6 sides, flawlessly cut, without saw marks. 
 

If we tried to replicate those pyramids in the same exact conditions, we are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars. Advanced engineering, and the creation of specialized equipment that could do things no commonly used modern equipment could do. 
And most like several decades at best. 

If you want to believe that finding some shelters with beds solves this mystery, you are just wrong.

Do you know where Giza is?
