In other writtings not part of accepted biblical text, the pyramids may have two separate builders. One of the accounts say that Enoch built the pyramids and that in one of them are the bodies of Adam and Eve. They were constructed to survive the worldwide flood that was coming to destroy all life on the earth.
The second account is that they were built by the Nephelim (although they were called by another tribal name), a race of half breed giants that numbered in the hundreds of thousands. These giants suffered a plague that killed nearly all of them off. The people that would call themselves Egyptians came after them and found the pyramids. They also learned things there that helped them become a great civilazation.

Is it true that the pyramids were buried under sand for a long long time? If so this could expain why they were not mentioned in the bible.
The Sphynx was buried to its neck in the sand about 500 to 800 years after it was made. A prince named Thutmose was out hunting and fell asleep in the shadow of the face. He dreamed that it spoke to him and said that if he cleared away the sand from its body, that it would ensure he became king. He did, and he became king and commemorated it on a very large tablet that he set between the paws of the Sphynx:
By the way, in the Dream Stele, Thutmose said the entity (Sphynx) was the god Re-Harakhte.
Amenhotep IV did not begin his religious changes immediately. In 1349 BC, he began the continuance of work on pylons at the Amun temple at Karnak. He, however, built an addition to the temple dedicated to the sun disk, Aten.
Aten was the sun it self, the one whom Amenhotep IV thought brought life to all animals and people. Even though Amenhotep IV brought the worship of the Aten to the forefront of Egyptian religion, he did not come up with the idea of the Aten. Archeologists believe that Aten worship, or the idea of Aten as the solar disk, was in the Egyptian pantheon since the Old Kingdom. A large scarab from Thutmose IV contains a text that mentions the Aten. Thus, Amenhotep IV received the idea of the Aten from other sources, most likely from an Aten cult that was gaining strength during his father’s reign (Strange 2). The Aten in artwork is often shown with rays coming down from the solar disk, offering ankhs, Egyptian symbol for life, to Amenhotep IV and his family.

The bible discreditors have surfaced,
On the contrary. I believe that the Bible is the word of God. I don't believe God uses nonsensical codes to relay His message. No serious biblical scholar would entertain such non-sense. It is akin to the "Bible Code", another theory of pure nonsense.
It is theories like those presented by the plagiarized text you took, as your own, which detract from the book of God's word.
Isaiah does not refer to the pyramids, and that IS in keeping with the discussion of the OP.
As to researching the Bible, I have over 40 years of research in it, and don't pretend to have all the answers, but I can tell you that no respected Biblical scholar takes such numerical nonsense seriously.
