So if they claimed the pyramids - why didn't the earlier pharoahs who built cruder version - and those after them - take over the giza pyramids?

Why did the workers think they built the pyramids?

Why are the quarries filled with 4th dynasty rubble?

Also, technically the Egyptians are in Africa so they are Africans.

You had a lot in that statement so if you don't mind we'll cut it up into smaller chunks.

I cannot answer why they did what they did, but I do wonder why the pyramid builders near the beginning of the timeline are the most advanced. Earlier Pharoahs may have attempted to build their own versions, which failed to achieve similar results. I do not know what the workers thought they built, but the cartouches in the relieving chambers are the only reference to them I am aware of. Quarries that were abandoned in that age would have such rubble, but they may have been in use from a much earlier time. Perhaps the rubble was from the repairs done on structures on the plateau.
Technically African. Is that different than just plain old African.

Since Genesis 47:11,Exodus 1:11 and Numbers 33:3 all refer to the land of Rameses, it seems that the alternative Egyptian reckoning is more accurate.


Ramses II was King Solomon

King Solomon was the King of Jerusalem, and Ra-Moses was Egypts ruler. Since Abrahams time, the Egyptians were well known to the Hebrews, Moses even had an Egyptian name, Joseph was a Vizier, etcetera. Every Biblical reference to Egypt before Solomon refutes your claim. Akhnaten, the banished King, whose name was stricken from every stone wall in Egypt, and who was a monotheist, is a far better fit for being a Hebrew, but he most likely would have been Moses, not Solomon. Tutmoses is the same name as David-Moses. Maybe he was one of the Davids in the OT.
But there is little chance Solomon was Ramses, based on the Bible itself.

Howdy Blackguard

You seem to wrapped up in geography of Africa, as it was arbitrary named, I don't see your point. If you wish Europe and Africa are acutally part of the Asian continent.

So basically we have just two continents, The Americas and Asia. The history of the world simplified. LOL

The point is that few people seem to ponder the underlying reason why so many argue against racism as a major motivation for teaching the falsehood. The groups that we have grown up in have made us the way we are, mostly. Racist vitriole is my point. We are taught to be what we are. Everybody denies they are racist. We are all biased, but we all can teach our children to share a kinder, more accepting, humble, respectful, common point of view, I hope, though I do not see it happening soon.

I'm hearing more and more people state Akhnaton was Moses. That is one of the best theories out there. It would also make the Egyptian and Davidian dynasties related to each other.
There are no technicalities about it, Egyptians are Africans!

David Rohl wrote two long, but good books on it. The Bible says that Abraham, Moses, and Joseph all had ties to Egypts royalty. There is not much more one could ask for. All people really want is to feel and be respected.

I think there is a lot of confusion about just what is an African.
Are you all thinking African=black/negroid? NOt all people with black skin are negroid.
Today's Egyptians are mostly Arab/semites. Yes Nubia is right next door and there are a lot of them in Egypt.

Most of the Egyptian Pharoahs of the early dynastys were blue-eyed blondes and red heads. Their causcasian/european features as well as their hair color are evident when you look at the mummies. Their skull shape is that of the Cro-Magnon type. It is dolichocephalic - long from front to back. Were they Atlanteans who came to Egypt when their land was destroyed, or perhaps before, and bringing with them their superior technology? And thus the sudden appearance of civilization in Egypt.

Here is an ATS thread on how they built the pyramids:
pyramids

And here is another interesting article re sound:
Heavy Metal Makes Lighter Planes

Making reference to the race of these people is not "racist". It is simply a matter of historical fact. Why should it be taboo?

As to the building of God's "Great House".....do you think this may be spiritual rather than material?

Blue eyed blondes and redheads are not what the researchers have been finding most often. Many black African Pharoahs have been scientifically proven to have ruled, not surprisingly considering that the Sphinx itself has a black African facial structure, ie. prognathism and wide nose, etc.
Redheads I can see as possible, but what Scandinavians were doing ruling in ancient Africa is hard to imagine. Especially considering what northern Europe looked like at the time, mud huts, fire pits and all. Not that your theory is racist, it just appears to be.

I have no idea what you are talking about BG, or what that had to do with my comments.

Blackguard, I am not disputing that there were Nubian rulers in Egypt both before and after the Hyksos. Before the Hyksos left some of the Pharoahs were mixed.
Now as to "racist" - tell me - If I had said that all the pharoahs were black, would that have looked racist to you?

I have a curiosity about hstory that includes wanting to know what the people looked like, don't you?

The fact remains that there are blonde and red haired mummies, not only in Egypt, but all over the world. That is simply a statment of fact, which I think is pretty interesting considering that we have all thought that other races and only these others were always in certain areas.

Go here:
blonde and red haried mummies

And on this site they have illustrated their population in different colors/races.
Egyptian races

Note the European features on the statues. This continues on for some pages.

LastDayProphet asks (a lot) how the Egyptians could ever know the diameter of the earth. I have to admit that at first this indeed seems very strange. But actualy, once you find out that the earth is spherical, calculating the diameter is not very difficult. As the matter of fact, Eratosthenes calculated this diameter in ca. 240BC by elementary mathematics (while he was living in... Egypt). So I don't think it's hard to believe that the Egyptians calculated the diameter without divine intervention...

Pay no attention to me when I get grumpy. Hopefully I will do a better job of conveying my point in the future. In short, my point is that I have issues with the historical treatment of certain subjects, events, motives, and peoples. It bothers me sometimes when I see past wrongs being defended, explained, and dismissed as unimportant when the fallout from them still exists, and the attitudes behind them have not disappeared. But, I try not to react negatively.

There is a difference, to me, saying they were black, since although that is racist too, it is not as bad, considering the historical biases.
I agree with the rest of your post. Curiosity is a valuable quality to me.
Racism, though, is also a fact of life. It was a force behind past injustices, and is still a force behind commentaries on those events.

So let me make a wild stab in the dark

BG13 do you want to have Egypt's civilization included in "African" history so that the other "lesser" cultures of Africa don't seem so insignificant when compare to others? Kinda the way Europe take on the culture of Greece?

I've seen one too many dissertations on numbers, measurements, and their intrinsic meanings. The formations at Cydonia on mars come to mind, especially with the talk of pyramids.

If you play with numbers long enough, you will come up with whatever you want. Likewise, if you look through the bible long enough, you can support any view that you want to take.


Bull, basically you are as superstitious as a wild-eyed believer.
Like you I saw one too many unabashed desertifications on numbers. I saw it here.
I also saw one too many wild claims distorting the laws of probability about playing with numbers to arrive to whatever you want and make it look good. Don't you realize that it is mathematically impossible?
I invite you to check my exact recreation of the layout of the three big Giza pyramids. You will see that my solution has a lot of muscle, which other solutions lack.
Once you see it, you will have indeed seen one too many. The final solution. But wait, you enjoy beating up little kids, figuratively speaking, by choosing to comment or attack that which is defenseless and the most pitiable, but stay away from a theory, which you would break your teeth on. You must have seen my thread, so why didn't you save some of your venom ( your mathematical acumen) for my theory? I love reasonable discussion, and having my solution dissected detail by detail.

Whether we like it or I want that or not, Africa is where Egypt is located, so it is part of African history. We just have to accept it since no one can change that. The other cultures you call lesser and say seem so insignificant have nothing to do with it. And you can see for yourself in many books that many of the ancient Greeks themselves admit they knew what they knew because they studied in Egypt. So, no, your wild stab in the dark is incorrect.

But who decided that "Africa" was any more than a made up name for a region? It has no meaning in itself. Each civililzation should stand on its merits and not be lumped together with those associated to it by loose geographic association.

You seem to be trying to bring up Black Athena and Martin Bernal stuff. If you are you can find people well able to go into that in greater depth at the Hall of Ma'at.
