Hello all, first post here...

My questions are:

- What if the outlying structures surrounding the pyramids were built well after the original construction of the pyramids? Maybe the pyramids were already there, possibly abandoned, and the Egyptians in a show of some sort of reverence built their tombs near by?


The development of the pyramids from mastaba, to step pyramid to pyramid occurs in an Egyptian context and there is zero evidence of another culture in the Nile valley that could have built them


Also, how does one C14 date stone? How can anyone be sure that just because a piece of organic material found in a structure dates to a certain age, the structure must be the same age? I've often wondered if it wasn't possible that the Egyptians "re-purposed" the structures for their uses when they figured out how to get inside.


There were two studies which looked at carbon-14 taken from burnt wood embedded in the gypsum mortar found in the Giza and other monuments of the old and middle kingdom

Radiocarbon dates of the old and middle Kingdom of Egypt

Summary of the results from the two C-14 testing

One of the dates is older than the others and that is one we were speaking about

The AE did use earlier structures (or are believed to) but those were built by their pre-dynastic ancestors.

"Explore the possibilitys or offer up a better explaination for the shafts." So basically your saying..until someone comes up with something that you feel is a better idea,that no one can challenge your theory? LOL.um-kay..heres a better idea... put an apostrophe in possibility's, then, spell explanation correctly...then we'll talk...


here i'll do it for you, possibility's and explanation. there.
now you can let us all know of your better idea, or are you just being a nasty little troll?
um-kay?

Shouldn't it be "possibilities?"

Read Christopher Dunn and Joseph P. Farrell.


If you have time to waste on idiotic claims.

Cats. The Egyptians essentially domesticated cats, worshiped them and used them in a variety of rituals. The shafts were meant to allow cats to be sent down into the chambers and other nooks and crannies inside the pyramids as they were being completed in order to clean out the mice and bugs and other critters that could potentially chew away at the mummies inside. After they did their job, the cats were allowed to climb back up and out and the shafts were sealed.

I think that the King's chamber vents were the output of the Great Pyramid water pump! The Great Pyramid pumped water!

You still haven't provided me with any convincing evidence that the Great Pyramid was constructed for burial purposes... Stating it was built in a cemetery doesn't make it burial monument... I haven't found any convincing evidence that the cemetery was there prior to the pyramid...

Inscriptions on anything except the actual monument, doesn't prove anything... Sorry, but all you have is a theory, like the ancient alien people or the long gone advanced civilization... You don't know who built it... You don't know what it was built for and you don't really know when it was built...

But here's the thing. We know the Egyptians (like so many other cultures) did build tombs. To suggest that the Egyptians built the pyramid as a tomb is consistent with known behaviour and requires no great leaps of faith, logic or science. To suggest aliens did it, or that advanced unknown super-advanced civilizations did it, requires massive leaps of faith.

While it doesn't mean that the pyramid was a tomb, it swings the pendulum pretty heavily in Hanslune's favour. If you insist on the provision of proof, then who should be providing it? The person offering the more reasonable and practical explanation or the person offering the more radical and outrageous explanation?

The next part of this is to note that....oddly enough, Khufu's family are buried in tombs located next to his pyramid.....such as

Queen Heterpheres-his mother
