If we really wanted to build a pyramid the size of the Giza one (say, Bill Gates wanted it built) it could be up in a matter of 5 years. Quarrying
stone goes much faster with modern machines than it does with hand tools, trucks and tractors move faster than a work crew of humans, and cranes can
lift large weights hundreds of times faster (and without getting tired) than humans can.
As to "evolved"... someone please define "evolved"? If you mean spiritually, they were far more "superstitious" than we (all you have to do to
confirm this is look up the many spells they had.)
I agree with thomas
on this one Bryd
. Are you seriously
comparing modern construction made with wood, steel, glass and concrete with the Great Pyramids of Giza? What a joke!
Then you made the comment that "Bill Gates" can build a pyramid in 5 years
. How embarrassing! 5 years you say?
This shows a complete lack of understanding of moving heavy loads and construction. I am surprised you made such claims and without even watching the
videos none-the-less. I realize not everyone has the time to sit and watch these documentaries but why, then, do you even comment?
Anyone can easily make claims that we can build such monuments today but the fact remains that we have not done so. The closest comparisons are with
modern hydro-electric dams but even these use concrete and steel utilizing modern equipment none of which the ancients were supposed to posses. I do,
however, find it interesting that we compare the pyramid constructions with modern dam constructions. Maybe these two are similar in more ways than
As for your comment on "evolved", what does spirituality have to do with superstition? I think you are confusing an understanding of the spirit of
man with uncontrolled fear which happened to be an underlining premise of these video series. Today most of us are blinded with fear so this makes us
superstitious not spiritual. I suppose that none of this even matters if you believe that knowledge is a linear progression and therefore cannot be

There were many things presented in these videos that have been shown here on ATS to be ambiguous at best (like the Baghdad battery) yet there are
many more that no one seems to what to debate like why the pyramids were built. The theory that they (Giza pyramids) were tombs for the Pharaohs is
nonsense. This obfuscation of the truth seems to be a matter of ego in my opinion. These monuments have an obvious connection with the stars that
Egyptologists and Archaeologists alike do not care to discuss and this is a true shame.
I am intrigued by the understanding of different levels of human consciousness and the precession of the equinoxes. How does the precession cycle of
the great year effect the culture of these civilizations and, more importantly, how has it effected us?
In my study of astronomy I often end up reading about ancient astrology and mythology. The understanding of knowledge as a cycle that is linked to the
motion of our planet and the stars as caught my attention to put it mildly.
