The ancient stone-builders were not people because people could not
raise the Great Pyramid, it is beyond human capability.
It sounds like you got your inaccurate information from people like Erich von Däniken and others who didn't understand (or maybe didn't even try to
understand) how the Pyramids were built, so they just said "since I don't understand it, it must have been done through some
The reality of it is that we have a pretty good understanding of the general way the Pyramids were built. Some of the details are still a mystery,
but people studying the Pyramids from an engineering and construction perspective have found many signs of how it was done (signs of hoistways, chisel
marks, the tools themselves, quarries with more chisel marks , hieroglyphs showing how the quarried stones were moved the remnants of the builders'
There were plenty of misunderstandings and incorrect assumptions by von Däniken and people after him that led to the myth of "it's impossible for
humans to have built it" such as the false idea that ALL of the stones used in the Pyramid were cut smoothly and set in their place carefully, which
would have been impossible to do in the time.
What he failed to understand was that only the exposed stones and other key structural stones are cut smooth; the rest that make up the bulk if the
volume of the Pyramids are just rubble stones and the spoils of the cut stones. Most could just be dumped in between the structural walls of the
Considering this, there was plenty of time for humans build the pyramids. They knew how to cut and move stones, and they knew how to hoist them into
position, and they had the manpower required to do it in enough time...
...so if ancient Egyptian people had the conventional means to do it, why wouldn't they be able to do it?
Erich von Däniken didn't do his due diligence in trying to understand how, and jumped to his conclusions way too soon without any real investigation.
