They don't need to demolish them. Egyptologists already ruined them anyway with disinformation and misinformation. Your average person now just thinks they're big blocks in the desert.



No, thanks to the history channel .. the average person thinks they are alien relics.

Besides the obvious stupidity of destroying a landmark / world treasure .. Why would they consider destroying one of their largest tourist attractions? .. When anyone thinks of Egypt, the first thing they think of are the pyramids..

What is Egypt without it's icon? just another rich middle eastern country... I can't imagine the people of Egypt would stand for that... they are a symbol of pride for the country..


Egypt is not rich, actually it is poor country with many social and economic problems.

Source of article is not credible, and people calling for destruction of Pyramids according to article are not Egyptians at all.

I was mostly referring to those ruling the country.. the government, I know that 20-30% of the population is below the poverty line

The Pyramids don't belong to a single country or culture, they belong to us as a SPECIES, they are part of our collective inheritance. That's the way I see it, at least. The ownership of such awe-inspiring monuments from deep history shouldn't be passed around like the deed to a warehouse complex. Once they are gone, they are gone, forever. Never to be seen again for the billions upon billions of years this universe will exist.

I'm incredibly sick and tired of religious zealots. They are responsible for such a massive destruction of our history as a species that I don't think we'll ever know the full extent of it. And to think such destruction is STILL happening in today's world makes me more angry than I prefer to be.


You are sick of zealots yet you say you will murder people who would destroy a structure? How zealous can you get?

BTW, it's not the new Egyptian government that is suggesting this should happen, it's the former leader of their party who was removed from post for being too radical.

I'll guarantee they want it destroyed because sooner or later people are going to find out who really built them and then they will lose all faith in Allah.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Let's assume for a moment they had those bad intentions towards the Pyramids....could we however possibly imagine that any of the biggest construction company's of this world could 'dismantle' this amazing artifact??
I really doubt so, and for those who now say they may try bombing it (oh did i really say that word just now)....that would take many mega tons of material and quite impossible to pulverize it...unless of course you prepare Nano-Engineered Thermitic Pyrotechnic charges at every each of the 2.6 million stone blocks then I would think one more time....

Hope you got my point...or is David Copperfield now also working for extremists?

Clearly, judging by the responses to this thread, there are many people who disagree with you and actually care about the pyramids.


Actually clearly, judging by the responses to this thread, there are many people using this article to show their true hypocritical bigoted colours. Has it been verified to be true?
Some posts say that they should be treated like a virus and quarantined,
Anywhere where theres a large Muslim population theres trouble etc
Religions are the causes of so and so deaths and war.

Has society become so ignorant to believe people dont have minds of their own,

Its real easy to lay blame on religion when in fact the induvidual performing the act is to blame not his religion not his skin colour not his social status, These things might have an influence in the way conclusions are made to perform an act of terror, just as there are many more influences in society to put pressure on people so as to live in stress and fear.

Re "as far as the Pyramids, i believe they are protected as a World Heritage site "


As if the crazy muzzies will respect something like that. They only know three things. Destroy, destroy, destroy




Thats not very nice to say,

Oh well at least they know 3 more things than you.

Are you kidding? If extremists destroyed the pyramids, there would be non-muslim apologists for Islam running around saying that it was somehow the fault of the rest of the world that the nutz blew up the pyramids. Political Correctness ... it would happen.


Yeah there would be, however people with brains will realise that the apologists are trying to keep ignorance from flooding the streets by pointing out it wasnt Islam that performed the act but people just like you and me.

The reality is, you've got a better chance finding a porno starring Mother Theresa and Al Sharpton than you do seeing the Pyramids destroyed . . . just a bunch of radicals shooting off their pie holes trying to get a rise out of everyone in a 'notice me' kinda way.

Let them shout and dance circles around an empty goat's skull until they get all tired of nobody listening and they dizzy themselves out in true hyperventilationist fashion.



Ok, that was so wrong on so many levels. Just the VISUAL that I got was enough to make me nauseated.

Question: Would that be the FAT Al Sharpton or the Skinny Al Sharpton?

I don't like the way some people in Egypt are taking their new leadership. It's also highly suspect that the Muslim Brotherhood, the same one that was inspired by Hitler and Nazi ideology is going down this radical path. I hoped that it wouldn't , but it looks like they will.

However considering the historical impact western/european influence has had on the middle east starting with Hitler, I also suspect that perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood is being encouraged to radicalism via covert western influence (spies, CIA, M-I6, etc.) to start a final conflict between the united Islamic middle east , and western powers (europe, north america)

Well for the film to star both Al Sharpton and Mother Theresa it would have to have been filmed before Aug 1997 when Mother Theresa passed away. What did Al Sharpton look like in '97 ? I think he was the chubby Al back then. Still had that pretty hair though !

What a load of fervent nonsense.


How can not find a credible source to this article? There is no proof to these claims.

This enthusiasm disgusts me. Go practice your xenophobia and intolerance elsewhere.

This article, idea, and 'facts' are a complete farce. Think for yourselves.

Why do some people seem to think that a simple missel would not do the job of taking down the pyramid ? What do those folks think these things are made from ? Its rock without mortar, a pile of artfully laid stones. I think one bunker busting missel would finish these off in no time. Tell me where I am wrong with this thought. Not that I would for a minute want to see this happen, I dont get the posts that say we dont have the technology to take them down when we certainly do and in quick order too.

I did a search on this article, and all I can find are other articles that lead back to Raymond Ibrahim's piece in Frontpagemag, which isn't the most balanced of sites.

The article did link sources for many of its statements, but, not it's initial and primary one - that the Arabic media is reporting that notable clerics are calling for the destruction of the pyramids.

So I'm a little cautious about this report until I can find out more. It feels like a manipulation of sorts.

They will not begin to know the horrors they will face if they bring this type of harm to Egypt's Great Pyramids!

I guess few are aware the Great Pyramid is made of quite a few blocks (say 1 million), each being 2 metric tons of solid limestone. It won't be coming down any time soon.

Exactly it's stood the test of time so far, around 1,300,000 blocks ranging in weight from 2.5 tons to 15 tons it's not exactly a clay statue. Shocking news though that anyone would seek to destory a wonder of the world.
As for it's potential impact on the stability of the planet, highly unlikely.

If filled, the [Three-Gorge reservoir of China] would hold 40 cubic kilometers (10 trillion gallons) of water. That shift of mass would increase the length of day by only 0.06 microseconds and make the Earth only very slightly more round in the middle and flat on the top. It would shift the pole position by about two centimeters (0.8 inch). Raising 39 trillion kilograms of water 175 meters above sea level will increase the Earth’s moment of inertia and thus slow its rotation.

When I see a good link I will believe this.

it is a conspiracy!
some political power is doing this to get hate against their opponents.

I am watching Press TV, to see if they have it in their news.

I'm not sure of the validity of this source but I wanted to post it here for some healthy debate on this. What do you think??
Calls my Islamists to Destroy Egyptian Pyramids begin





Accordingly, while many Egyptians—Muslims and non-Muslims alike—see themselves as Egyptians, Islamists have no national identity, identifying only with Islam’s “culture,” based on the “sunna” of the prophet and Islam’s language, Arabic. This sentiment was clearly reflected when the former Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Akef, declared “the hell with Egypt,” indicating that the interests of his country are secondary to Islam’s. It is further telling that such calls are being made now—immediately after a Muslim Brotherhood member became Egypt’s president. In fact, the same reports discussing the call to demolish the last of the Seven Wonders of the Word, also note that Egyptian Salafis are calling on Morsi to banish all Shias and Baha’is from Egypt.



Discuss!


Radicalislam.org ... 'nuff said.

Shocking but facts need to be clarified when statements like this are put in the article:

"prominent Muslim clerics"

And the article itself is suspicious at best, as someone mentioned the title does not portray the contents of what is being published (but then that was probably intentional sensationalism).

No, these people are no prominent, if they were the rest of the majority Muslim collective would not call them things like "Wahabis", a term applied to most Arab Clerics (who seem hell bent on believing the rest of the world is evil).

These literalistic zealots will see the world as black and white hence why they are calling for such things but don't forget these are the same people who are also stating certain Islamic religious sites and historical artefacts should be destroyed because of their literalistic view of everything in Islam.

Lazy journalists don't bother differentiating fact from fiction anymore, instead more than happy to label everything as one or the other, like calling everyone who is not white "Black", tarnishing them with an unobjectionable narrow minded view.

No doubt someone is going to use this as an excuse to come out with a statement like "lets liberate Egypt from those pesky Islamists because they want to destroy the pyramids"...really?

This site is about denying ignorance so lets try and do that for once.
