Early on, the vid states that "...There are over 2 million stone blocks in the pyramid." Resulting in a claim for one block every 2 and a half
minutes, which is a claim that has been shown to be false here at ATS many times in the past by myself and many other posters. IOW, this is stating
complete speculation as if it were a fact.
No one knows how many stones are in the GP. The fact is, once you get in past the stones we see on the exterior, the core is made of God knows how
many stones, mostly simply mortared together in a pile - and barely any that are visible have been shaped in any meaningful way. They also vary
greatly in size - from huge down to football-sized.
The estimation (from the 18th Century, BTW) of 2.5 million blocks is based on a solid pyramid constructed entirely of same-shaped rectangular blocks
using the "average" size of 2.5 tons each. The GP is not solid, it contains large void spaces filled with rubble and apparently waste mortar, as
well as (obviously) chambers and halls. It was also constructed around a small hill and nobody knows the true extent of that hill on the interior, it
being covered with the previously mentioned hodgepodge of mortared together stones of various sizes except in a few visible spots.
It should be noted that well over half the volume of any pyramid is found in the bottom one-third of the structure. Even if we pretend the
entire thing is made of rectangular blocks, the idea that Egyptians placed a single block at a time - which is what the "one block every 1.5
minutes" implies (or, at least, that's the mental image it evokes,) is ridiculous. During early stages of the construction, stones could easily have
been placed coming from all four sides at once, with multiple stones going in from each individual side using simple ramps at very low slopes and as
wide as each side of the structure - each ramp with tens of crews hauling in tens of stones simultaneously.
Sorry, but seeing this empty claim stated as fact is enough for me to opt out of watching this overly long video any further, as I believe I can
anticipate the majority of other bogus claims concerning the GP that are likely to be found in it.
