Once again, I own a chunk off this pyramid. It is sitting before me. It has tons of delicate fossils in it. Sea creatures. These could not be in there if the rock had been ground up and then poured like concrete. It is limestone. Concrete is a form of limestone. But it is limestone that has first been heated then crushed to powder.
It is utterly impossible for this rock to have been man made. Period.
I do not understand why people wonder about how they built the pyramids. That was proven 30 years ago. There is no mystery there. At all. None.
You want a mystery? How did they move those stones at the temple of Baalbek? Those suckers were enormous and they stacked them like bricks. WTF?

Havent we always been told that we know where the blocks came from ? Havent we been shown the quarries?
I want PROOF before I give up my belief that they built these from solid stone.
Are we sure this isnt some kind of debunking trick?
And who says what they have told us is 100% truth on how they were built?!
They don't even know how they built them, it's all theories, so how can they say for sure 100% that they didn't make the stones in this manner?
We have no idea what "technologies" the Ancient Egyptians had. Technology doesn't have to mean the same as it does today. IMO they were far more advanced than we give them credit for. We can't even replicate their structures today with the tools and machines we have.

This report is 5 years old, at this time no evidence has been found for 'concrete', jus good old limestone.

What are the Pyramid of Cheops(Khufu) Made Of?
The outside of a pyramid was made almost entirely of limestone. The limestone that was built around the interior pyramid and allowed the pyramid to have an incredibly bright shine to it. Some say that the shine of the pyramids was visible all the way to Jerusalem. Unfortunately, most of the limestone was either stolen or destroyed over time, and the majority of most pyramids' facades now consist of the inner shell.
The inner shell of the Pyramid of Giza is mainly composed of granite. Interior sections of the pyramid are also composed of this material. For instance, the King's Chamber, where the king was buried, is also built from slabs of granite. Many slabs of granite were required to build the pyramid's interior rooms.
...so, it means most of what we see when we look at the grate pyramid is granite... mystery continue
have good day*

Well if they could simply pour new blocks into a mould, then that could at least shave some time off the construction period. This would explain how the great pyramid was built in such a short time scale. Maybe the ancient Egyptions some how used sonics to liquifi the rock and then pour and re harden it in place.

Old news and debunked for 2 reasons -
To grind the rocks to powder, pour, then cure them would take LONGER than quarrying them. Quarry has already proven as the quarries up the nile have half excavated blocks in the wall.
The blocks have been found to have whole shells embedded in them, These would have been ground to dust if they were man made.
I highly suggest everyone watches this - John Anthony West on the Joe Rogan podcast from a few days ago talks for 3 hours about the mysteries of egypt and covers this very subject (skip past the tech glitches at the start) -
