Actually we're talking about ca 5000 years ago, something that also supports the idea that the Great Pyramid is the "tombstone" of Adam who died

Well if that is how you look at the Great Pyramid, it's no wonder you can believe that slaves dragged 2,300,000 blocks of stone with an average
weight of 2.5 tons each, to build the 140 meter high structure and place the stones so accurately it would be impossible to recreate it even today.
From The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh by W. M. Flinders Petrie, touregypt.net...
"Though the stones were brought as close as 1/500 inch, or, in fact, into contact, and the mean opening of the joint was but 1/50 inch, yet the
builders managed to fill the joint with cement, despite the great area of it, and the weight of the stone to be moved—some 16 tons. To merely place
such stones in exact contact at the sides would be careful work ; but to do so with cement in the joint seems almost impossible."
Now, even if the Cathedral of Notredam is impressive, it's not even close to the Great Pyramid.
