You know, you should do some math before you make that claim. there are half a million stones on the pyramid, and it went up in 20 years. that means they could easily do something like 70 bricks a day, or 2 bricks and hour. Perfectly reasonable. 3d render. Guess where it came from? the scans.
10 X 24 = 240 X 360 = 800,000+. That's plenty of time for just one year. (just realized that one is wrong but bellow is right) lets get one brick layed every hour. 1 X 24 x 360 x 10 = 800,000 plus. Still plenty of time. they had 20 years. And that's an estimate.
Try to visualize the staggering figures as you visit the pyramid: 4,000 year-round quarrymen producing 330 blocks per day. During inundation season, 4,000 blocks per day are transported to the Nile, ferried across, hauled up the ramp to the Giza plateau, and set into place in the core—a rate of 6.67 blocks per minute! Imagine 6.67 blocks every 60 seconds!
Had this pyramid been built by slaves, then their number would be extraordinarily high, in the range of 240,000
Had a ramp been built to construct the pyramid, then it would have taken some eight years to dismantle this ramp after the pyramid was completed. This theory, according to the Danish civil engineer Garde-Hanson, is ridiculous, because once the ramp had been torn down, giant rough blocks would have been left over. Yet no such evidence is to be seen anywhere.
The angles of the Great Pyramid divide the Nile delta region into two equal halves.
The three pyramids of Giza have been arranged so as to form a Pythagorean triangle, whose sides have the proportions 3:4:5.
The proportion between the height of the pyramid and its circumference is equal to that between the radius of a circle and its circumference.
The Great Pyramid is a giant sundial. The shadows it casts between mid-October and the beginning of March reflect the seasons and the length of the year. The length of the stone slabs around the pyramid is equivalent to the length of one day's shadow.
The normal length of the square base of the pyramid is equal to 365.342 Egyptian yards (a unit of measurement of the time). This is very close to the number of days in a solar year (which has been calculated at 365.224 days).
The distance between the Great Pyramid and the center of the Earth is equivalent to that between the pyramid and the North Pole.
In the pyramid, the perimeter of the base divided by twice its height is the number Pi. The total surface area of the pyramid's four sides is equal to the square of its height.

I'll give a better picture hold on.
You can see the indention a lot better in this almost antique picture.
I jump to the conclusion of extraterrestrials due to prior beliefs, but also the fact that this could not be reconstructed today. The cement used cannot even be reproduced. Not to mention the accuracy to true North on the scale of 13 acres while keeping a meticulous shape.
The larger reason is the fact that these Pyramids just appeared into history with architecture of the highest order and then pyramids after that failed to get even close to the craftsmanship.
It's literally a black hole in history, and archeologists are too stubborn and arrogant to even attempt to change the current theories.edit on 30-11-2010 by 11118 because: (no reason given)
The Pyramid is located at the exact center of the Earth's land mass. That is, its East-West axis corresponds to the longest land parallel across the Earth, passing through Africa, Asia, and America. Similarly, the longest land meridian on Earth, through Asia, Africa, Europa, and Antarctica, also passes right through the Pyramid. Since the Earth has enough land area to provide 3 billion possible building sites for the Pyramid, the odds of it's having been built where it is are 1 in 3 billion.
