'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."

God-Anu (El An),  father of Enki(whos symbol is the dragon) and Enlil(who's symbol is the Falcon) supposedly Aninaki from planet x, think that aliens built the pyramids. How strange.

I dont think any of us are qualitied to argue with Elon Musk, who knows he may be an Alien. I mean he took Tesla's ( Tesla also may have been a Alien ) designs and incorporated to build his Electric Cars. Then he turns his energy towards Space Programs, and look what he has done in a very short time, its pretty amazing. Not to mention he doesnt even speak like a normal human, it's like when he talks it sounds like someone speaking that is from another Planet. In addition the first thing he said to the US Government was take me to your Leader!! So just maybe he is an Alien, lets just hope he do... [More]

You forgot space aliens.

But maybe Musk really knows something. In September 2018, when he came to Joe Rogan’s podcast, the host asked how the billionaire was doing. “I’m an alien”, Musk replied. And he smiled mysteriously. There you go. Elon has a habit of trying to trigger a response out of people by saying outrageous stuff. Of course, he doesn't believe any of that. Anyone who actually believes that Elon is some sort of dummy or crazy, already took the bait.

Well, he is an alien: born and bred in South Africa, then he moved to Canada.

I recall reading how some ancient scholar mentioned that he was watching the restoration of the Egyptian pyramids... that they were resurfacing it to add the story of the latest pharaoh... hinting that this had been happened for quite some time... mentioned that some sort of skins were involved in coating the vast bricks....   I thought it may have been Herodotus...  tried to see if I could find the article and came across this... some interesting tales of old... of other wonders of his time...     Maybe it is somewhere here... https://www.gut...

  There's also Strabo (Bk XVII): And Pliny the Elder (36:16): But nothing about "... resurfacing ...  to add the story of the latest pharaoh ... "
