In other news it's been recently discovered that instead of being built by slaves as it was once though, the pyramids where built by volunteers/professionals and all/most were paid well for the work they did.

I read somewhere that Pyramid builders were well paid.

Just imagine, the Pharoah is more or less a dictator and has complete control over the economy. So, he has the wealth to build a Pyramid. Today, it would take someone of immense wealth to build a Pyramid. Comparatively speaking the Pharoah would have been like a " gazillionaire" when you think the rest of the population lived in abject poverty or were slaves.


The thing with the idea of poured concrete is that it opens up the possibility that they could use animals to transport the concrete mix which would radically reduce the time it takes to build them, and the number of people required.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your point, wouldn't pouring concrete into a giant mold, make it solid throughout? Then you'd have to wait for it to dry and hollow it out in certain areas, I imagine to do this it'd be easier to mold each section differently as to also do it quick enough you'd be lifting tons of cement to pout in etc, it's just not as easy as you've suggested.

The pyramids, much like any grand structures of the ancient world (The coliseum for example), all took MANY years and hundreds of thousands of people to build. I love how the pyramids always get the attention of "maybe aliens did it" when the coliseum was probably much more complex and took longer to build, but yet the idea of humans building that is perfectly fine.

I don't want Fop, goddamn it! I'm a Dapper Dan man!

Given the archeology taking place around the complexes where they used to rest/eat/sleep/etc while working on the project, in a way 'Yes' they were look after well.

No... more like a 'King' and all that such entails. From the evidence just of Tutankhamen, Pharoah's weren't immune to 'political' machinations.

So, really, the workers are foing it "For King and country" is not actually too far a stretch. I seem to recal a very recent film about blokes dying for such things.

I would suggests just a different social and economic structure. No wealth need be applied.

Consider So... if they used animals and not peple hauiling... we'd find evidence of the animal's remains/waste etc?

I'm quite happy to go with that, um, centuries? (A good long while) of acheology reports they've found about the pyramids and such. Thumbsup

Poke who?

Nah, George Noory has guests on who talk about the Zeta reticulans, all the time.

You'd better bone up on them, lest you become the next alien abductee under discussion on Coast to Coast.

RE: The Pyramids are fake!
Considering the Vatican does not widely admit that the Obelisk in the center of St Peter's square is stolen from Egypt, no not by the Catholic Church, but they will not widely admit that Caligula a brutal dictator stole many Egyptian symbols because he wanted to be a living God. Funny how Christians often claim the God of the bible as a living God.

The only thing the Church did was replace one abuser with another.

Facepalm
We know the history of Egyptian pyramid building ... the ones that worked, the ones that fell down, (and engineers know why they collapsed). This bullshit of poured concrete is the same as saying aliens did it. It's ludicrous. The Pharaoh was the top of the Egyptian religion. Where his revenue came from is documented in various ways. The encampments of the builders/workers have been excavated, and it is known how they lived. You REALLY ought to pick up a history book before you make a fool of yourself, and make up shit because you think it makes sense today.
