So they have discovered how they managed to do something impossible to modern man.
Why is it impossible for us to do it??
Im not here to educate you, or anyone.
There was a group of japanese scientists that tried to build a puny pyramid in the 80s-90s, they failed miserably.
Should you not have an inkling about the thread topic before you post in it?
The changing climate first attracted people to the Sahara as rainfall increased abruptly throughout the region beginning about 10,500 years ago (8,500 BC) at the end of the Younger Dryas (See Abrupt Climate Change). Then increasing drought drove them southward into the modern Sahel as the rains became less frequent beginning about 7,200 years ago. By 5,500 years ago (3,500 BC) the Sahara had returned to full desert conditions. It appears that many who left the Sahara settled in the Nile valley about 5,500 years ago, setting the stage for the First Dynasty starting with the reign of King Narmer in 3,000 BC (5,000 years ago).

The video I posted showed a single man lifting a 10 ton block all by himself with not even one other person helping him, using nothing but sticks and stones. They had thousands of workers so it would have gone thousands of times faster.

I want to see this applied.. Still doesn't explain how they stacked them and had it built in a 20 year time frame. I saw hemp rope used and it just stretches until it breaks..
I don't know how it was done but I'm going with fail on the scientists explanation..
Thanks, well I'm glad at least one person watched the video.

Somewhat surprised that it seems everyone pretty much just ignored that video. The guy was able to move some quite large stones just by himself without any special technology. He's building a stonehenge type structure, but I can't think of any reason why this couldn't apply to moving any stones.
It also talks about a large infrastructure to support the workers, like discovery of a sewage system, evidence of bakeries to feed them, etc.
Analysis of skeletal remains shows the average age at death was between 30 and 35 years. Bones of both men and women show evidence of heavy labor. Degenerative arthritis occurred in the vertebral column, particularly in the lumbar region, and in the knees.
