I, too, would like to know which mainstream historians have attributed the building of the pyramids to aliens, Maverickhunter. Surely if these
historians or archeologists are mainstream then they are certainly in the minority.
I also think some of your reasoning is absurd. Although the pyramids of Egypt are arguably the greatest structures every constructed on Earth, their
absense would hardly mean the end of future architects and archeologists. The ancient world was filled with amazing structures and statues. Just
look at the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, for starters. The pyramids of Egypt are not the world's lone source of inspiration when it comes to
architecture and archeology. Sure, their absense would have altered the course of history on some levels, just as the absense of anyone or anything
else would ("the Butterfly Effect").
Now, lets assume for the moment that there are mainstream archeologists and historians who attribute the construction of the pyramids to alien beings.
I believe that their doing so would have nothing to do with their own personal refusal to believe that slave labor was used. You will find that most
people who deny the existence of slavery, or events such as the Holocaust, are often the descendents of the very people accused of carrying out such
attrocities. It's much harder for a German grandson of a Nazi to give the Holocaust credibility, just as it is for the American grandson of a slave
owner to give the existence of slavery any credibility. However, you would be hard-pressed to find such behavior with regards to something that
happened THOUSANDS of years ago! And even if you did, and if my belief is correct, then it would only be displayed by those of Egyptian descent. But
if someone of Egyptian descent is refusing to acknowledge that slave labor built their pyramids, out of pride and heritage, then it would also stand
that they wouldn't want to give credit to a race of alien beings, either. They would want people to think that the pyramids were built by their own
people of their own free will, without the use of slaves and without the help of space aliens!
Then you must also take into account that the majority of archeologists and historians are not themselves Egyptian. So what motives would they have
in denying the existence of slave labor used by Egyptians thousands of years ago?
I hope that you can understand the point I'm trying to make here. Sometimes it's hard to explain what I'm thinking in simple terms and without
using a million words! So, in closing, I think that your thinking is way off.
