Impossible. I have a piece of the Giza pyramid. It contain delicate fossils. Any attempt to make it into or out of concrete or pourable would destroy the fossils. Period.

How do you know they abandoned the Pyramids because of grave robbers?
The universe being infinite or not, well YOU or I do not know that for a FACT.

I'm not trying to start an argument, but rather wanting your opinion on something. They said it took around 20 years to construct the pyramids. There is an estimated 2,300,000 blocks each averaging 5,000 pounds (2.5 tons).
If it was/wasn't built by Egyptians, it would mean they would've had to lay a stone every 4.6 minutes for 20 years straight.
It's base is 13 square acres. If you take a satellite image of the apex of the pyramid it is only off of center by a quarter of an inch. The margin of error for each stone is inconceivable.
I'm just curious as to how that could be possible using copper or even dolomite tools with pulleys or logs.
I understand where your coming from, but it just seems well out of the realm of possibility.edit on 7-2-2012 by iamhobo because: (no reason given)

Hi pyramid watchers.
Why, despite the existence of millions of tons of stone, carved presumably with copper chisels, has not one copper chisel ever been found on the Giza Plateau?
Here could be the answer :
And more similar answers here :
Also, the answer is in the link of the second line of my signature.
Not being an engineer, I think that the reconstituted limestone theory is the best one going right now. It's the option that best fits what we know and gets around the issues (like how big the ramp would have to be to lift the stones manually) in a way that makes sense.
Ground limestone would still have to be "lifted manually," only this way even more weight would have to be lifted because you have to account for the weight of water to mix it with.
So this method doesn't save you any work at all, and it actually causes more work, and it takes much longer because the stones were not poured in place (if they were, there would be forms between the layers and there is not.) Hence, you'd have to pour them and let them dry before you could maneuver them into place.
The method causes more problems, and solves absolutely nothing.

Actually the whole block thing of it being comprised in 22 years so on and so fourth is rubbish. Just by doing simple math
YEARS *DAYS * HOURS * MINUTES * SECONDS / BLOCKS
22 years = 8030 days = 192,720 hours = 11,563,200 Minutes = 963,792,000 Seconds / 2,500,000 blocks = 277.5168 seconds per block.
So roughly 5 minutes per block that means 24 hours non stop no sleep no lunch or water The ordering of, quarrying of, carrying of, and placing of the block took all of 5 minutes my tail.

Wow, nobody here cares.
Go to a forum that does.
"Luciferian Wannabes?" Geez dude, what are you, Southern Baptist? Do you realize there was 0 notion of "Lucifer" in the age of the Egyptian dynasties, and that in fact the idea of "Lucifer" stems from fear instilled by monarchs and Calvanism?
The original word "Lucifer" comes from a Greek word which means "One Who Bares Light." A lighthouse is a "Lucifer."
