This has been discredited a long time ago as a HOAX. Not sure what to think of it though. The guy seems like this typical Balkan dreamer type. Perhaps it's all real in his mind,,,, perhaps even in ours.

That wiki page says:

Nameless "scientists". Again!
Amar Karapus, a curator at the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo, said "When I first read about the pyramids I thought it was a very funny joke. I just couldn't believe that anyone in the world could believe this."(Source-Colin Woodard, December 2009, "The Pyramid Man", Smithsonian 40:9)
No, the hoax is not a hoax, unless you know more than professor Parker in which case you can explain why he's mistaken.
Of course, the cynical sceptics amongst you may feel that claims like these are so fantastic as to be unbelievable, but that is not the case. We believe the reason the claims are unbelievable is more simple; they are wrong.
How can we be so sure? We have been talking to Professor John Parker of Cambridge University, the director of the Botanic Garden and also Professor of Botany at St Catharine's College. He's actually travelled there and seen the evidence first hand....
El Reg: But you weren't convinced?
Professor Parker: Well, no, because I'd seen this kind of thing before. It is a perfect example of a fossilised beach, essentially little mud ripples on a beach which then becomes fossilised. What they were doing was cutting into the hillside to expose this beautiful raised beach.
El Reg: What about the marks of the shuttering?
Professor Parker: As the conglomerate formed and then subsequently cracked, the cracks were filled in with calcite which would be crystallised from the calcium carbonate and dolomite which makes up the matrix. If you looked at the cracks between the slabs carefully – and this is what told me straight away that it was natural – you could see that individual stones that were embedded in the matrix were shattered through.
In other words, you regularly find single stones, embedded in two slabs, cut neatly through by the "shuttering" lines. It seems highly unlikely that human beings would split stones and place the two halves neatly on either side of a piece of shuttering. But natural cracks will run through both the stones and the matrix. So the cracks are clearly a post-construction phenomenon, not a pre-construction one.

Not much progress / research since it was found few years ago. what a pity.
You mean like my one-liner post about 4 posts up from yours?

It seems to me that every time a post like this comes along there is inevitably at least one person who throws the "this was confirmed a hoax" one liner. Funny thing is they never back anything up. It is an odd denial that comes out in people. I believe that most of these people are very afraid of finding out that the world they live in isn't what they have been taught.

hmm I think you will find that the Egyptian Pharoahs were in fact from western Europe. So it explains why there is pyramids in europe as people went south and headed towards Egypt.
Discovery Channel made a boo boo where they showed the results of the dna test by accident. Dr Hawis wanted to keep the dna results a secret because it didnt tally with his own ideas.
Where exactly did you get this information from???
