An astounding level of work went into this compilation of materials.
I just have to say for those naysayers who do not know how the pyramids were built, this was taught during school when I was growing up as a part of
history, it seems throughout the decades that un-teaching society this was a part of the Education Systems.
Not to mention my insatiable appetite to learn.
Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece were my favorites followed by Ancient Egypt.
Math, levers and fulcrums, and the block and tackle with ropes and pulleys have been used since the dawn of mankind.
The biggest need, beside blocks, was slaves for the Egyptians to use, abuse, and misuse.
They had this in abudnance as did many other countries throughout history.
A part and parcel of warfare was capturing the opposing armies and selling them into slavery.
Or using them for the conquering country's slave labor.
One example, albeit not necessarily in the context of building the pyramids, was Pharoah and Moses.
Moses would never have had the exodus of the Hebrew nation unless they were in Egypt against their will.
The Hebrew's were known for their brick-building capabilities.
Again, slightly off of the pyramid aspect, but no less important because of the precedent of slavery.
Throughout the ages many cultures used slave labor to build their cities, roads, and other duties.
During Rome's time the soldiers built roads when not at war and were paid for their labor with salt.
I have no doubt, SLAYER69, you illustrated a lot of facts, and aliens had nothing to do with it.
Mathematics, levers, fulcrums, pulleys, ropes, and slave labor built those pyramids as tombs.
Tombs to petty, vain, spiteful, and hateful individuals who often tore momuments down to build their own.
Again, an amazing amount of information, a wealth of it in fact, nothing I however did not already know.
Kudos though for bringing a civilized discussion where too few tread.
I remember a few years back discussing this with someone on ATS and they denied everything I had to say.
It seems ignorance is taught more in schools than actual facts though nowadays.
