'Aliens built the pyramids', Tweets Elon Musk

Is Musk on to something ? Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 Jerzy Strzelecki
The SpaceX CEO sparked controversy and debate recently after posting up a rather unusual Tweet.
Musk is certainly no stranger to posting up questionable Tweets, having previously managed to wipe $14 billion off the value of Tesla after writing "Tesla stock price is too high imo" and sparking heated debate about interplanetary nuclear weapons by Tweeting "Nuke Mars!"

His latest unusual Tweet, which he posted up on Friday, reads: "Aliens built the pyramids obv".

While the idea that the Egyptian pyramids were constructed with extraterrestrial assistance is certainly not a new conspiracy theory, it's not the sort of thing you'd expect someone in Musk's position to write.

His Tweet immediately generated a slew of replies on social media, with some users criticizing his remark and others wondering if he knows something the rest of us don't.

Egypt's Minister of International Co-operation Rania al-Mashat was particularly vocal - even going so far as to invite Musk to Egypt to see for himself that aliens were not involved.
"I follow your work with a lot of admiration," she wrote. "I invite you and SpaceX to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of the pyramid builders."

"Mr. Musk, we are waiting for you."

Famed Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass branded Musk's comment a "complete hallucination."

If you enjoy the work of Chris White, the writer, director, producer, and narrator of Ancient Aliens Debunked I am sure you will appreciate even more his other groundbreaking work: Sleep Paralysis and How to Stop Sleep Paralysis. White, who is a bat__crazy hard core Evangelical Christian devoted to bringing strays back to Christianity, like the other contributor Michael Heiser, believes sleep paralysis is a form of demonic possession which among other chestnuts he says: He also seems particularly hung up on these demons sexually violating their victims. Nothing to worry about there I'm sure.  ... [More]

To what precisely do you deduce that I have lent a "stamp of approval," Thanos5150? I have occasionally referenced Michael Heiser's SitchinisWrong site on specific points connected with Sitchin being, well, wrong. This does not mean that I either endorse, or have any opinion at all of, other aspects of Michael Heiser's work.

Well, Merrell, I guess we can only wonder but lets try to follow the logic path here. Scholor4Truth says: "Here is some good data on how its possible humans were able to build the pyramids without the need of injecting the Alien hypothesis". You "like" this post, hence your "stamp of approval" of its content. My powers of deduction are truly astounding.  And for some bizarre reason, in your reply you ignore Chris White, the writer, director, producer, and narrator of Ancient Aliens Debunked, and ignore Ancient Aliens Debunked itself, and only ...

It was Scholar4Truth (and not Scholor4Truth). The link (which you didn't include) was from here. The blog article in question discusses AE building methods, with arguments, evidence and citations. I have no comment on the rest of your post, as I don't really know what you're talking about.

Don't be a cad.  See above. Given I actually quoted it in my initial response there is little reason I would or need to give a link to it as well.      It is not a "blog article in question", it is a tran of the Ancient Aliens Debunked video with link including the tagline: "Go to 22:41 in the video".  It seems impossible you could not.

Does that mean Musk has never been to Egypt and seen the pyramids?

Kmt: So good to observe your presence! As a personal aside, it would appear that your facilities are continually improving. Your capacity to deal with what you have been through, and the matters that you are still contending with, are testaments to your internal fortitude. Have a great Holiday season and carry on! Edit: Punctuation.
