well....your right It doesn't take a genious to build a pyramid..but it took a genious to build the great pyramid. Even in those days a civilazation that uses primitive tools.....learned mathamatics and astronomy and uses that to build the pyramids from some form of inspiration. but the facts still remains,egyptologist have found no hard evidence on how the egyptions build the pyramids. So the jury is still out. Aliens!? ......maybe or maybe not, who knows.But all i know is that some egyptologist say that the great pyramid cannot be duplicated even with our modern day tecnology. no way. we cou... [More]

And also every pyramid culture tells of strangers coming with new information and assisting in building the pyramids. What bothers me is there is no real photographic evidence of the ukraine pyramids. ive been searching around and found only one. you think they would be sending pics all over to prove thier point.

They still haven't figured out how exactly the gigantic stones where draged across the dessert to Egypt. With todays technology it would be a very expensive maneuver with large machinery. How did they do it?

How did they do it? Who says they made them? But still if they did ti's amazing as now we'd struggle to make these there probably in my opinion the biggest mystery of how our ancestors made them all that time ago. And someone who posted in another of these threads has actually made me wonder in the way of do these have greater meaning? Are they all conected in some way? To the other pyramids. But still amazing discovery but are there any pictures of them?

They still haven't figured out how exactly the gigantic stones where draged across the dessert to Egypt. With todays technology it would be a very expensive maneuver with large machinery. How did they do it? The majority of the granite rock were transferred on rafts down the river. The pyramids are a remarkable feat by an ancient civilization, however when your culture bases itself around something so important such as the afterlife you spend your life dedicating it to that purpose. No Aliens came down to the egyptians and told them to build the pyramids. The pyramids were built using human in... [More]

Finding these pyramids does open doors for more questions and also changes history. The Egyptians, to my knowledge, has always been accredited for building the first ones. Even though cultures had the knowledge of how to build a pyramid, it is remarkable to me that so many felt the need to do so.

have any artifacts been found? arrow heads, pottery, anything? BTW, there is no need to bring aliens into these discussions...the town the workers lived in has been found in Egypt, near the pyramids... the quarry the sandstone blocks were taken from is there beside the pyramids... there are carvings showing the Egyptians moving huge statues on sledges... people did these things, not ET's LINK- Moving Large Objects

Personally i don't think aliens either. its more likely human but most probably not egyptian. It could be possible that another preexisting human culture built them. Compare Kufu's first attempt at a pyramid near the ethiopian border, to one he built right after at Ghiza.
