Who Built the Egyptian Pyramids & How Did They Do It?: New Archeological Evidence Busts Ancient Myths

Although it’s cer­tain­ly more plau­si­ble than hypothe­ses like ancient aliens or lizard peo­ple, the idea that slaves built the Egypt­ian pyra­mids is no more true. It derives from cre­ative read­ings of Old Tes­ta­ment sto­ries and tech­ni­col­or Cecil B. Demille spec­ta­cles, and was a clas­sic whataboutism used by slav­ery apol­o­gists. The notion has “plagued Egypt­ian schol­ars for cen­turies,” writes Eric Betz at Dis­cov­er. But, he adds emphat­i­cal­ly, “Slaves did not build the pyra­mids.” Who did?

The evi­dence sug­gests they were built by a force of skilled labor­ers, as the Ver­i­ta­si­um video above explains. These were cadres of elite con­struc­tion work­ers who were well-fed and housed dur­ing their stint. “Many Egyp­tol­o­gists,” includ­ing arche­ol­o­gist Mark Lehn­er, who has exca­vat­ed a city of work­ers in Giza, “sub­scribe to the hypothe­ses that the pyra­mids were… built by a rotat­ing labor force in a mod­u­lar, team-based kind of orga­ni­za­tion,” Jonathan Shaw writes at Har­vard Mag­a­zine. Graf­fi­ti dis­cov­ered at the site iden­ti­fies team names like “Friends of Khu­fu” and “Drunk­ards of Menkau­re.”

The exca­va­tion also uncov­ered “tremen­dous quan­ti­ties of cat­tle, sheep, and goat bone, ‘enough to feed sev­er­al thou­sand peo­ple, even if they ate meat every day,’ adds Lehn­er,” sug­gest­ing that work­ers were “fed like roy­al­ty.” Anoth­er exca­va­tion by Lehner’s friend Zahi Hawass, famed Egypt­ian archae­ol­o­gist and expert on the Great Pyra­mid, has found work­er ceme­ter­ies at the foot of the pyra­mids, mean­ing that those who per­ished were buried in a place of hon­or. This was incred­i­bly haz­ardous work, and the peo­ple who under­took it were cel­e­brat­ed and rec­og­nized for their achieve­ment.

Labor­ers were also work­ing off an oblig­a­tion, some­thing every Egypt­ian owed to those above them and, ulti­mate­ly, to their pharoah. But it was not a mon­e­tary debt. Lehn­er describes what ancient Egyp­tians called bak, a kind of feu­dal duty. While there were slaves in Egypt, the builders of the pyra­mids were maybe more like the Amish, he says, per­form­ing the same kind of oblig­a­tory com­mu­nal labor as a barn rais­ing. In that con­text, when we look at the Great Pyra­mid, “you have to say ‘This is a hell of a barn!’’’

The evi­dence unearthed by Lehn­er, Hawass, and oth­ers has “dealt a seri­ous blow to the Hol­ly­wood ver­sion of a pyra­mid build­ing,” writes Shaw, “with Charl­ton Hes­ton as Moses inton­ing, ‘Pharaoh, let my peo­ple go!’” Recent arche­ol­o­gy has also dealt a blow to extra-ter­res­tri­al or time-trav­el expla­na­tions, which begin with the assump­tion that ancient Egyp­tians could not have pos­sessed the know-how and skill to build such struc­tures over 4,000 years ago. Not so. Ver­i­ta­si­um explains the incred­i­ble feats of mov­ing the out­er stones with­out wheels and trans­port­ing the gran­ite core of the pyra­mids 620 miles from its quar­ry to Giza.

Ancient Egyp­tians could plot direc­tions on the com­pass, though they had no com­pass­es. They could make right angles and lev­els and thus had the tech­nol­o­gy required to design the pyra­mids. What about dig­ging up the Great Pyramid’s 2 mil­lion blocks of yel­low lime­stone? As we know, this was done by a skilled work­force, who quar­ried an “olympic swimming-pool’s worth of stone every eight days” for 23 years to build the Great Pyra­mid, notes Joe Han­son in the PBS It’s Okay to Be Smart video above. They did so using the only met­al avail­able to them, cop­per.

This may sound incred­i­ble, but mod­ern exper­i­ments have shown that this amount of stone could be quar­ried and moved, using the tech­nol­o­gy avail­able, by a team of 1,200 to 1,500 work­ers, around the same num­ber of peo­ple archae­ol­o­gists believe to have been on-site dur­ing con­struc­tion. The lime­stone was quar­ried direct­ly at the site (in fact the Sphinx was most­ly dug out of the earth, rather than built atop it). How was the stone moved? Egyp­tol­o­gists from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Liv­er­pool think they may have found the answer, a ramp with stairs and a series of holes which may have been used as a pul­ley sys­tem.

    Is it pos­si­ble that the Egyp­tians used oils the grease the slabs and make them eas­i­er to move over a ramp?

  • Will says:

    I just don’t buy it. The stones are too large to have been erect­ed by prim­i­tive means. you can explain it to me over and over and I still don’t believe that ancient Egyp­tians built these struc­tures.

  • Denn says:

    I’ve yet to see any­one carve gran­ite with a cop­per chis­el.

    Gran­ite is 8–9 in hard­ness, while cop­per is at best 2–3.

    It just does­n’t work. Imag­ine try­ing to cut mild steel with a lip­stick.

  • Patrick Wagner says:

    I believe pyra­mid con­struc­tion was thor­ough­ly explained in the movie K2019 The Great Pyramids.Not so mys­te­ri­ous but intrigu­ing and believ­able.

  • Myron Logan says:

    They and you know who built the pryamids me and my peo­ple did and to this very day you still don’t know how we done lol and you peo­ple are still try­ing to fig­ure out but here’s my ques­tion if black peo­ple are so this and that then why are you still try­ing to study my pryamids just a ques­tion for white peo­ple

  • Myron Logan says:

    Just know one thing white peo­ple did­n’t do it now I bet they can’t claim that

  • philippe couty says:

    Exper­i­men­tal arche­ol­o­gists ( sci­en­tist against myths , youtube)in Rus­sia have drilled holes in gran­ite with a wood­en drill equipped with a cop­per bit and sand to the same results found in Egypt , they have also cut gran­ite using a cop­per saw and sand ‚accord­ing to them , the cut and holes are achieved through abra­sion and move­ment of the cop­per imple­ment while drilling and cut­ting .A dior­ite vase was repro­duced with the same tech­niques , no laser , death rays involved here nor are aliens . Inso­far the per­fect aligned stone (lime­stone not gran­ite )blocks in the pyra­mids ‚may be all the answers you need is in Geopoly­mer the­o­ries ( see Prof. Joseph Davi­dovitz the­o­ries ).

  • Jay says:

    Why are you tout­ing this as “brand new”? We’ve known for years that they were skilled labor­ers and cer­tain­ly not Jews as Jews weren’t in exis­tence at the time of the build­ing of the pyra­mids. The find­ing that there are rem­nants of mas­sive sites or town­ships show­ing pot­tery and cat­tle bones giv­ing cre­dence to the notion bread and meat were reg­u­lar­ly con­sumed as well as a type of mead which bor­dered on being a meal in itself and for which work­ers had a dai­ly ration of over 10 pints has been com­mon knowl­edge since cir­ca 1990 and the dis­cov­ery of the 4,000 + year old tombs were first dis­played by “Egypt Today” back in Jan­u­ary 2010.

    Have a look at this arti­cle:


  • PaleHorse says:

    You mean as in with the load­ing method called “Senor McLoad­en­stein?” That would’ve been a pret­ty effi­cient method tbh- because “es muy rapi­do.”

  • Jay says:

    This is hard­ly new. We’ve known this for at least 11 years and cer­tain­ly sus­pect­ed it since the 90’s when the first 4,000 + year old work­er time were found around Cairo.


  • Margie says:

    The Jews built the pyra­mids

  • Phil says:

    The head of the Egypt­ian antiq­ui­ties dept. Back in the 90’s admit­ted that what they pre­vi­ous­ly thought were beams from an ancient ship turned out to be parts to a wood­en appa­ra­tus that was used to build the pyra­mids. Some guy and his team built one and they used it to place a pyra­mid block from the ground on to the next lev­el of the pyra­mid and it only took two guys to oper­ate it. They were also lift­ing cars and vans. There is a video some­where, I believe the guy’s name is Ron.

  • James Morgan says:

    I believe that the Great Pyra­mid was built 10500 b c by peo­ple who fled Atlantis. The Hall of Records when found will prove it. There is no way that no mat­ter how many peo­ple you have it could not build this struc­ture in approx 25 years espe­cial­ly with cop­per tools.

  • todd Ryan hooper says:

    Evi­dence nev­er ‘busts’ any the­o­ry, proof does, and how do you mea­sure plau­si­bil­i­ty con­cern­ing such strict unknown unknow­ables? You cant

  • Owl says:

    If a reg­u­lar guy pulls/pushs 150# then 1000 guys should be able to pull/push 50tons. And Egypt enslaved mil­lions.
    And these peo­ple worked it every­day!

  • RobinSeppi says:

    The 10,500 year BC date has been being thrown around for decades and I have always believed that we have had help from Aliens and I have been called every­thing you can imag­ine but I have nev­er thought that belief in God means that humans are the only ones made as I can’t be that much of a pompous ass and I am 60 and I was born believ­ing that all those stars in the night sky could have life and I have not seen an alien yet but I know that there is a pos­si­bil­i­ty that I will before I die!

  • Hue Man says:

    Hey Myron,

    Stop being a racist moron..

  • R says:

    I believe the pyra­mid was made to look like a star because of the shape and the white lay­er coat­ing. With the moon­light it may have shim­mered in the dark.

  • R says:

    Maybe it even aligns with a cer­tain star too

  • midorosan says:

    I was so put off by the nar­ra­tor’s habit of wav­ing his hands I had to stop, pity because it looked inter­est­ing, no need for all the wav­ing and ges­tur­ing, he also needs to work on his whiny voice.

  • John says:

    There are 5x as many pyra­mids in the South Sudan, and they are much old­er , but no one wants to look into it because the black- nubian tribe is still there. One Eng­lish man went there and came to the same con­clu­sion. This guy sop­ke of Aswan..Aswan , Egyot(khmt),the Black-khmt and nubian peo­ple are still there..

  • George says:

    Will, the ancient Egyp­tians were not “prim­i­tive”, they had a good deal of engi­neer­ing knowl­edge and exper­i­ments have shown ways that 1000+ work­ers could have done it, by reduc­ing fric­tion enough. It’s best that we go with real evi­dence and rea­son instead of just our own biased opin­ions.

  • Ray says:

    What did they use on their char­i­ots if they had no wheels?

  • Bobby says:

    Egyp­tians did­n’t build the pyra­mids. They were there long before the Egyp­tians got there.
    Who­ev­er built them had a knowl­edge of tech­nol­o­gy, astromo­ny, math­e­mat­ics, that we don’t pos­sess today. On the sub­ject of how they were built , there is a sto­ry of a stone tablet found in Egypt some years ago about Alexan­der the Great’s time Egypt. His senior advi­sors came to him with a sto­ry of a small vil­lage near Cairo, where the peo­ple had mag­i­cal pow­ers. ALEX went there and found that these peo­ple fould raise boul­ders off the ground and move them around with ease. Ales wor­ried that his army could defeat­ed by drop­ping rocks, had the whole vil­lage killed.

  • Lyron Mogan says:

    Your peo­ple? You do realise that we are all descen­dents from each oth­er?
    If you want to be like that, they are not your peo­ple as I am Egypt­ian so they are my peo­ple? I guar­an­tee you are prob­a­bly 10th gen­er­a­tion African Amer­i­can and nowhere near as close as a descen­dant as I.

  • Terry says:

    You are absolute­ly right wé all are from the same fam­i­ly. Thé real truth is most peolpe dont want to admit it or come To terms with it.Because thi­er heart is not right with God and they are blind­ed by thi­er own self-righ­t­ious­ness and World­views.

  • Robert B Wilson says:

    Maybe the whole gizah plateau was planned from the begin­ning. A struc­tur­al map of what would be placed and built in that area .
    All the pyra­mids planned and built at the sane time but start­ed by 1 king /pharaoh and the next pharaohs con­tin­u­ing the con­struc­tion until com­plet­ed..
    The pur­pose they where built for .who knows ??? How they where built was by human hands to a grand plan set by mas­ter masons and engi­neers which would have kept the work force well fed ‚employed and reward­ing in build­ing mon­u­ments they prob­a­bly did­n’t even know what where being built for.?
    There maybe tombs allover the gizah plateau , inscribed with names of the work­ers and prob­a­bly their fam­i­lies as well .why not ?
    Bet­ter next to a huge mon­u­ment than buried out in the desert. List and for­got. With the chance jack­als and fox­es dig­ging up your beloved ances­tors and leav­ing their remains sprawled across the desert.

  • joel schlecht says:

    Does any­one remem­ber a show the ver­ata­si­um guy was in where he claimed he was an arche­ol­o­gist? I believe it was also about pyra­mids.

  • Timo says:

    Of course they used wheels. But their wheels were squeres.

  • David Riddell says:

    How did they cut the gran­ite for the queens and the kings cham­bers they where cut gran­ite not bashed out the grand gallery. Around the base of the pyra­mids you will find holes in stone that have been drilled or bored out how did they do that

  • Brendan says:

    Both skilled (for the time), even bril­liant (and paid) engi­neers and arti­sans AND numer­ous slaves or serfs could be employed on the same mas­sive project. These are not mutu­al­ly con­tra­dic­to­ry. Wit­ness the U. S. Cap­i­tal and oth­er mag­nif­i­cent US struc­tures. I believe the same is true for tsarist Rus­sia and many feu­dal and semi-feu­dal soci­eties.

  • Michael Bush says:

    Please, mod­ern Acad­e­mia wants you to believe the crap they put out, just a o they don’t lose their fund­ing. The truth of the build­ing has been proven by anoth­er arche­ol­o­gist that has been silenced by Acad­e­mia. The proof is in the mold­ing forms that are still present in some parts of the area. The lime­stone was mixed and formed on the spot. The Arche­ol­o­gist in ques­tion even repro­duced the event using exact­ly the same tools and forms to show how easy it was. Please, please stop with con­trol­ling of real his­to­ry by means of a group that fears for their own fund­ing.

  • Larry Wayne Billups says:

    The proof is what it is.

  • Donald Maley says:

    The builders were not white nor black.they used the rope and tack­le ways to pull the stone up the ramp to place stones in place wei­ther up or down into the pyra­mids

  • Maryjay says:

    Real­ly bro? This has absolute­ly noth­ing to do with race. You know how to make racism go down to a low min­i­mum? Quit talk­ing about it and giv­ing it atten­tion. We are all broth­ers and sis­ter’s and chil­dren of God and I’m so sick of peo­ple turn­ing every­thing into a racial thing. I’m Ital­ian and French main­ly. The col­or of some­one’s skin or where they are from has absolute­ly noth­ing to do with the pyra­mids. It seems you’re look­ing for trou­ble and that’s exact­ly what they want you to do. Don’t fall for it. The major­i­ty of the world isn’t racist but sad­ly those that are racist get more atten­tion so we see it on tv and think racism is every­where and the media pur­pose­ly does this because many white lib­er­als want you to think you’re sup­pressed and need their help and then when they get in office they leave the black com­mu­ni­ty hang­ing and mak­ing you think you need the gov­ern­ment because they think you’re too stu­pid to make deci­sions on your own and that’s what piss­es me off. They all talk a good game but they dont care about any of us they just want pow­er and want you to vote for them and you get gov­ern­ment assis­tance and stay poor. Wake up and pay atten­tion and I say all this with mad love. I’ve lived in the hood for 6 years in the ear­ly 2000s in Bal­ti­more then in Char­lotte and I saw exact­ly what was going on and it broke my heart. You wan­na know why most planned par­ent­hoods are in the hood? Because a white lib­er­al racist named Mar­garet Sanger wants black women to abort their babies in hopes of killing off the black pop­u­la­tion. Don’t take my word for it read about it. When i lived in the projects i got a lot­ta love and made life­long friends and some of the best peo­ple ive ever known live in the hood and i see right through what the gov­ern­ment does to you guys and we need to stop sep­a­rat­ing one anoth­er based on our skin col­or and place of ori­gin. The only thing that mat­ters is what’s inside. You don’t need the gov­ern­ment or the democ­rats to help you. You are free to be who you want to be and nobody can stop you and don’t let any­one con­vince you oth­er­wise. Spread knowl­edge and love to every­one and be kind and stop look­ing at every­thing as a race thing because that’s exact­ly how the gov­ern­ment wants you to think. Much love.

  • Maryjay says:

    I just have to say, only a racist per­son can look at the pyra­mids and make this about race. It’s sick­en­ing we can’t even have a con­ver­sa­tion any­more with­out some­one mak­ing into a racial argu­ment. It’s aad real­ly… Most of the world isn’t racist but those that are get the most atten­tion and then peo­ple watch the news and feed into this false nar­ra­tive that every­thing is racist. You know how we get rid of it? Stop giv­ing it atten­tion and stop sep­a­rat­ing your­selves from one anoth­er based on skin col­or and place of ori­gin. We are all broth­ers and sis­ters. I was born in 85 and I did­n’t grow up with racism.. We all hung out and had every race in our group and did­n’t judge one anoth­er based on race,just their atti­tude and inten­tions is what mat­tered but now because of a hand­ful of inci­dents by some pricks the democ­rats once again used the racial ten­sion to their advan­tage and yet again many fall for it. Read up on his­to­ry because a lot of peo­ple have no clue we have been here before and we know how it ends. They want us to fight and want every­one to think every­one that isn’t a Demo­c­rat is racist when that could­n’t be far­ther from the truth. The Repub­li­cans fought and won the civ­il war to free the slaves but yet democ­rats have turned evil and thats why i switched par­ties because it’s sick­en­ing what they do and how they still have the pow­er to brain­wash the black com­mu­ni­ty. A lot more have wok­en up to their schemes and i love to see that. Stop giv­ing racism atten­tion and stop seg­re­gat­ing your­self! We are all free to be what we to be but the way things are going this might not last long and then the gov­ern­ment will con­trol every aspect of our lives if peo­ple don’t wake up. I say all this with mad love but it just stress­es me out how you can read this and look at this beau­ti­ful world won­der and auto­mat­i­cal­ly turn this into a racial thing. Just stop it! We’re all broth­ers and sis­ter’s and just because of a few racists jerks got tons of atten­tion and black lives mat­ter made bil­lions off the suf­fer­ing of racial injus­tice and have done absolute­ly noth­ing to help the black com­mu­ni­ty!!!! I could go on for days about this but you get the point… Hope­ful­ly. At least Trump’s crazy ass had good poli­cies and built oppor­tu­ni­ty zones in inner cities and had the low­est num­ber of black unem­ploy­ment and had the high­est amount of the black vote because peo­ple are wak­ing up to what these lib­er­als have turned into. You dont need the gov­ern­ment to suc­ceed and you’re not sup­pressed! You have the same oppor­tu­ni­ties as any­one you just have to work hard to get there like every­one else does! Stop falling for the gov­ern­ments bull­shit and stop think­ing every­thing is about race. Only a racist per­son would look at the pyra­mids and turn it into a black and white thing when nei­ther race has any­thing to do with these. They ate good and were extreme­ly smart. Niko­la Tes­sa was look­ing at the pyra­mids and had come to the con­clu­sion it was built as a pow­er plant of some sort.. It has to do with ener­gy and the stars as well. They are find­ing out our ancient ances­tors were high­ly intel­li­gent and we are now just catch­ing up.. These days we are so self involved and wor­ried about mean­ing­less bs that we have dumb­ed our­selves down and it’s sad. Instead of learn­ing from the past and learn­ing that black peo­ple had slaves (just like kamala har­ris grand­fa­ther and Irish peo­ple were enslaved as well it was­nt just a white and black thing but any­way that’s the past and that’s how things were done but there’s noth­ing we can do about it now because the Repub­li­cans saved the slaves and yet here we are over 150 years lat­er still talk­ing about it! It’s so stu­pid. I blame teach­ers and todays democ­rats and the media but it’s up to each and every­one of us to stop this crap and stop giv­ing into it! We’re all relat­ed in one way or anoth­er and this needs to end!!

    Dude the ancient Egyp­tians were a homo­ge­neous race, made up of dark & light skinned peo­ples.

  • Shawn says:

    The water tow­ers were need­ed… They bild the tow­ers with water… They float­ed the stones with boat like plat­forms.. They worked smart not hard… But it was still not easy work… The taped in the bot­tom to let the water flow to the peo­ple.. So they could be strong and have strong crops.. They used every­thing and did not waste any­thing… U need to feed the mind to be strong.. Now days they want us to eat fast food to be clue­less and take tot­tle advan­tage by brain wash­ing us to beleave every­thing u see on tv… I just wish they would be fare.. But every one with pow­er wants to own the world.. I just had to tell my toughs… Thanks for let­ting me speak … Your broth­er from anoth­er moth­er Shawn M Mad­dox… I love this place I call home.. But junk food is junk..

  • Daren says:

    Many the­o­ries and thoughts exist about who built the pyra­mids. We know that Hebrews were around at the time of the build­ing of the pyra­mids and that they were also slaves. So why couldn’t they along with “under class” Egyp­tians work along­side each oth­er to build them?

    It’s hard believe because of euro­cen­tric edu­ca­tion and racism. Black peo­ple did it! Run­ning water, air con­di­tion­ing, win­dows, pul­leys, banks before europe thought about dark ages, astrol­o­gy, cal­cu­lus, lit­er­a­ture, col­lege and uni­ver­si­ties, archi­tec­ture, libraries, soap, medicine…sorry to burst your bub­ble. Of course this is asi­nine too.

    The slaves were NOT BLACK!!! They were Hebrews…

    The great Pyra­mid of Giza is the most per­fect and sci­en­tif­ic mon­u­ment on the face of the earth! Not only is it a archi­tec­tur­al and engi­neer­ing mar­vel, it is a geo­graph­i­cal one too! Accord­ing to experts, the great pyra­mid of Giza is the most accu­rate­ly aligned struc­ture ever cre­at­ed by human beings. The builders would have need­ed to pos­sess high­ly sophis­ti­cat­ed knowl­edge of math­e­mat­ics and geom­e­try know­ing the true dimen­sions of the earth to extreme pre­ci­sion. Then have pos­sessed excep­tion­al­ly advanced tech­ni­cal instru­men­ta­tion to site the great pyra­mid which just hap­pens to be locat­ed AT THE EXACT INTERSECTION OF THE LONGEST LINE OF LATITUDE AND LONGEST LINE OF LONGITUDE. It is also per­fect­ly ori­ent­ed to the four points of the com­pass still more accu­rate than the Paris obser­va­to­ry!

  • Brannon Richards says:

    Those are not staves they are hold­ing in the heirogliph­ics they are tun­ing forks. They used har­mon­ics to move the mate­r­i­al used to con­struct them. It’s obvi­ous­ly not in the inter­est of sci­ence to reveal this but it is in fact true. Sound is your answer. What did Tes­la say again? There is a rea­son that peo­ple deal­ing with har­mon­ics and engi­neers are kept apart in every tech­nol­o­gy insti­tu­tion in the world. Crys­tal cav­erns in Flori­da is a great exam­ple. Monks do it dai­ly. I’ve seen them move larg­er stones. BTW the Egyp­tions that most say“built them did not. They poached them. They were built way before those guys showed up and said” look what we did” it’s not true. Look at the water ero­sion. These were con­struct­ed before a great cat­a­clysm.

    Mas­ter Masons have know from the begin­ning that the pyra­mids weren’t built by slaves. Instead they were built by teams of Mas­ter Masons–as with the build­ing of Solomon’s Tem­ple.

  • Jeff says:

    Zahi Zawass is a hack. He is only in it for him­self. Refused to let any­one explore the void under the Sphinx.
    Where did the math come from to build the pyra­mids? Bet­ter yet, where did it go? I would­n’t be sur­prised if mov­ing of the stones did­n’t use a sim­i­lar method as Edward Leed­skalnin did to move the stones to build Coral Cas­tle. Meth­ods that cer­tain­ly must be in the records that Hawass sealed from his­to­ri­ans and arche­ol­o­gists. There was way more than human knowhow and tech­nol­o­gy involved in build­ing the pyra­mids. Why is it that we can­not repli­cate today the meth­ods that were used for build­ing the pyra­mids? Were the books burned when Napolean raid­ed the libraries in Egypt? Or, are they locat­ed in the Vat­i­can library? A big­ger ques­tion is, if the records do still exist, why are they kept under lock and key?
    A more impor­tant ques­tion than who built them is, why did they build them? These were not built sole­ly as tombs for the pharaohs.

    But it is absolute­ly clear that the orig­i­nal builders had a body of knowl­edge of spher­i­cal geom­e­try, stone work­ing, and astro­nom­i­cal aware­ness far,far ahead of their time. Just accept the fact that the won­der­ful Egypt­ian inher­it­ed and improved some­thing that had been there for a very long time.

  • Gman says:

    I am lean­ing towards the idea that the sand­stone blocks were actu­al­ly cre­at­ed out of an ancient form of con­crete and were mould­ed on site. There are some stones in the great pyra­mid’s low­er cham­bers with wood and cop­per imbead­ed in them which sup­ports this the­o­ry.

  • Shane says:

  • ChazAtl says:

    Although humans built the pyra­mids it was not built when they said it was. Name­ly for rea­sons that there is ancient inscrip­tions from Mesopotamia and sumar­i­ans that speak of the pyra­mids back as far as 6000 bc. Well before Khu­fu was even born.

    More than like­ly khu­fu worked on the pyra­mids or ren­o­vat­ed them for lack of a bet­ter term. That is why his name is on it.

    I am not frus­trat­ed or dis­miss­ing of the above arti­cles the­o­ry. What I get frus­trat­ed about is how main­stream his­to­ri­ans take one instance of dis­cov­ery as fact and close the book.
    That’s not how dis­cov­er­ies are made. You need to look at the most like­ly but then keep ques­tion­ing and search­ing.
    It seems like they took one sci­en­tists opin­ion and a poor­ly drawn hyro­glyph and called it a day. And that was over 100 years ago and we have made moun­tains of dis­cov­ery since then. Most that have chal­lenged khu­fu as the builder.
    For all the glo­ry and hon­or of being the pharaoh who built the pyra­mids you know how much and how many sto­ries were writ­ten about him? Zero. There is lit­tle to noth­ing about him.
    We need to keep ques­tion­ing. Keep look­ing. There is more to this.

  • Graeme says:

    When address­ing the sub­ject of slaves maybe build­ing the pyra­mids, so many peo­ple assume that it was the Hebrews.
    The Hebrews were puts to work mak­ing clay bricks, not shrug­ging stone. While it’s true that they were slaves, they def­i­nite­ly did­n’t build the pyra­mids.
    The evi­dence points very strong­ly towards paid work­ers as described in the video. There is evi­dence of an ancient port hav­ing been exca­vat­ed near the pyra­mids which would have received the stone.

  • Taru says:

    You did not build the pyra­mids. A skilled work­force of ancient Egyp­tians built them. Even if you are a direct descen­dant of one of those skilled labor­ers (which of course, unless they decide to do DNA test­ing on the bod­ies of the work­ers, you will nev­er know for cer­tain) you can­not claim cred­it for build­ing them.

    When a son takes cred­it for his father’s work, that son is a lazy liar. What is a per­son hun­dreds of gen­er­a­tions removed, who is claim­ing cred­it, called?

Don’t throw every­one who hap­pens to have the same hue of skin tone togeth­er in one, all-encom­pass­ing pile. That is a racist move no mat­ter which race is being gen­er­al­ized.

  • Joseph Baham says:

    Thank you for not being a one sided thinker. Duh there were slaves. Duh there were Jews (it’s lit­er­al­ly his­tor­i­cal record). Duh there were many many skilled work­ers. There’s so much duh around the pyra­mids its annoy­ing and mind numb­ing. Per­haps that is because I also am Ozy­man­dias. But not here for that just now. There’s talk of Atlanteans. While i def­i­nite­ly believe there were mul­ti­ple cul­tures, why did the south amer­i­can natives have white beard­ed gods and claim lit­er­al­ly to have arrived by boat from Atlantis, I don’t think these are their work. Peo­ple are con­fused bout what these things were and how they came to be. They’re lit­er­al­ly a poly­math show­ing off his Geom­e­try skills, whether as guid­ing gold­en land­marks glint­ing on the hori­zon, or tombs, I’ll even feed the ener­gy har­ness­ing bat­tery the­o­ry. Sure maybe. But they’re so eas­i­ly under­stood in cre­ation I don’t get the debate any­more. Atlantis is in the durr duh dur­rest of place too. AC Odd­ysey even had the exact shape of the island, pro­l­ly fell in dur­ing Pom­peii. Like peo­ple get all tripped out on Stone­henge. Ridicu­lous. Like that’s so obvi­ous­ly a calender/star track­ing assis­tant tool, they rolled each stone on logs and kept mov­ing the back log to the front when it was free. Like­ly they cut the pyra­mid stones right there at the site and used the flood­ing Nile to trans­port the raw stone from up riv­er. I mean alleged­ly. I would­n’t know but it all seems quite sim­ple and obvi­ous in my mea­sure. There are pyra­mids all over the place. Lets talk about the ancient per­fect­ly archi­tec­tur­al domes before the tech­nol­o­gy exist­ed. Tri­an­gles are basic. Lets talk spheres. Or Helix even. Why is the cell in a human eyball (unex­plained by evo­lu­tion btw still no clue how eye­balls hap­pened) is the same shape as galax­ies? And I don’t wan­na hear “give us one mir­a­cle and we got it from there”.

  • Jason M Breshears says:

    The Val­ley of the Kings and tra­di­tion­al Khemet, ancient Egypt, was 450 miles south of Giza. Upper Egypt has no pyra­mids. Only the Val­ley where rulers were interred and Thebes, Lux­or, the cities of Egypt were locat­ed. Low­er Egypt was almost always ruled by for­eign pow­ers- Elam, Mitan­ni, Hit­tites, Assyr­i­ans, Per­sians, Mace­do­nians.

    Seri­ous­ly has nobody here ever read The Emer­ald Tablets of Thoth ? If you real­ly want to know the truth about not only ancient Egypt, but the rest of the world, start read­ing every­thing they try to hide from you. Every lit­tle mythol­o­gy, every lit­tle band from the Bible, espe­cial­ly the Lost books of Enki, the Mahab­hara­ta, the enu­ma elish, the Dead Sea scrolls, and also research the fact that Zacharia stitchin was not the first to trans­late the Sumer­ian clay tablets there were about a half dozen or so before him that trans­lat­ed them and got pret­ty much the exact same trans­la­tions. Start look­ing at geol­o­gy, pale­on­tol­ogy and then com­bine the two and look at this world on a grander scale than any­one has ever imag­ined, and you’ll start to under­stand that lit­er­al­ly every­thing you’ve been taught is a lie.

Don’t believe that time line? Try it. And then there’s the added chore of cart­ing tens of thou­sands of many-ton blocks up and well over 100m in height. Not say­ing aliens, but there is a tech­nol­o­gy which is clear­ly miss­ing from the equa­tion.

  • David says:

    The heav­i­est stones in the Great Pyra­mid are esti­mat­ed to weigh 80 tons. A sin­gle block of stone weigh­ing 1,500 TONS was moved ENTIRELY by human hand in Rus­sia in the 18th cen­tu­ry, and by just 400 men. Read about it here:


  • David says:

    Hard evi­dence, please?

  • David says:


    The pyra­mids were con­struct­ed dur­ing the peri­od of the Old King­dom, 1,000 years before Egypt con­quered part of the Near East to found the New King­dom Empire. The Jew­ish (Hebrew) lan­guage and cul­ture did not begin to emerge until about the 11th cen­tu­ry BCE, and there is not a shred of hard evi­dence to show that the Exo­dus sto­ry is any­thing oth­er than bib­li­cal myth. The clos­est approx­i­ma­tion to it may be the his­tor­i­cal fact that a Near East­ern peo­ple called the Hyk­sos ruled Egypt for a time after the col­lapse of the Mid­dle King­dom, and that they may have been forcibly expelled when the New King­dom was found­ed in about 1560 BCE.

  • David says:

    A year is 365 days, there­fore 30 years is 10,950 days.

    There are an esti­mat­ed 2,500,000 blocks in the Great Pyra­mid.

    Divide 2,500,000 by 10,950 and the result is 228, i.e. 228 blocks had to go into place every day.

    Divide 228 blocks by 24 hours, that’s approx­i­mate­ly 9.5 blocks an hour; but it’s unlike­ly that they would have worked through the night, so let’s say 12 hours, that’s 19 blocks an hour, hard work, but not impos­si­ble if you have a work­force of 20,000.

    Each block weighed an esti­mat­ed 1250 kilo­grams, (2,500 lbs).

    If 100 men pull each block, then divide 1,250 by 100 – it’s the equiv­a­lent of each man pulling just 12.5 kilos, or 25 lbs.

    If they used just 5,000 of the esti­mat­ed 20,000 work force, then they could move FIFTY blocks at a time, e.g. fifty groups of 100 pullers in a long train; in a 12-hour day, they could prob­a­bly get more than 200 blocks into place, per­haps as many as 400 or even 500, if then used half the esti­mat­ed work­force 10,000 peo­ple, then they could get even more stones into place.

    The heav­i­est stones, over the Queen’s and King’s cham­bers, prob­a­bly required spe­cial oper­a­tions, using a very large num­ber of the work­ers to move each stone. Again, do the maths – 80 met­ric tons is 80,000 kilos, say for that oper­a­tion they used 3,000 work­ers, then divide 80,000 by 3,000 and that’s the equiv­a­lent of each man pulling just 26 kilos. Increase it to 4,000 work­ers, just 20% of the work­force, and the weight is reduced to 20 kilos per man.

    Imotec is the builder of the pyra­mid. 2,100 years pri­or.

    It is high­ly prob­a­ble the Egyp­tians used water as a weight for a funic­u­lar sys­tem to build the pyra­mids, as there was a lot of water around the pyra­mids at the time of the con­struc­tion. Flat bot­tomed barges were used to ship the stone from a rea­son­able dis­tance away, right up to the base of the pyra­mids. To use a sys­tem of pul­leys and ropes to pull the 2.2tonne blocks up a slope would be very sim­ple when a con­tain­er of about 4–5 m³ weigh­ing 4–5 met­ric tonnes as a coun­ter­weight to the stone. It would have been far less effort to fill the con­tain­ers each lift, than for hun­dreds of peo­ple to pull the stones via ropes and pul­leys. Logs as tracks with plen­ty of ren­dered ani­mals fat for grease or olive oil would have facil­i­tat­ed the slide. A water bal­last­ed funic­u­lar wold have been well with­in the capa­bil­i­ties of the Egyp­tians even thou­sands of years ago. A sim­ple, ele­gant solu­tion to mov­ing large heavy mate­ri­als, even then !

  • Smokin Wet, N Goin Fed' says:

    Of course every­one’s argu­ing about race. Do you think the peo­ple who built the pyra­mids stopped to argue about race while they worked? This man­u­fac­tured racial cri­sis per­pe­trat­ed by the left wing media is real­ly low hang­ing men­tal fruit for spoiled, emo­tion­al­ly imma­ture, mind­less idiots to waste time on. Fuck all you hoes.

  • Amah Jones says:

    The pyra­mids Kemet (Egypt) and Nubia (Sudan) were built by ancient black Africans as tem­ples of their Sun wor­ship. The pyra­mid-build­ing cul­ture was lat­er export­ed to oth­er parts of the world, includ­ing West Africa, Asia, Cen­tral-Amer­i­ca, and South Amer­i­ca. In Nige­ria (West Africa), the British destroyed the Uto pyra­mids, which ancient Ibibio mys­tics of the Sun-Moon wor­ship erect­ed in hon­or of Uto, the earth, green­ery, fer­til­i­ty, agri­cul­tur­al, beau­ty and planter god­dess. The Ibibio mys­tics of Ibrit Am (Ibri­tam) a.k.a. Ibrit Aum, Ibrit Om, or Ivrit Am built the Uto pyra­mids.

    Uto is the Ibibio equiv­a­lent of ancient Egyp­t’s Hathor, Uto, Edjo or Wad­jet. Uto is pro­nounced OOT-HOR, and girls born dur­ing the sea­son of crop cul­ti­va­tion are often named Uto among the Ibibios.

  • Ben says:

    Have you been to Cairo? The place is a dump… falling to bits… no way did they build the pyra­mids… can’t even build a decent road struc­ture.

  • Bartek says:

    No, those 3 pyra­mids are much old­er and they were def­i­nite­ly NOT build by Egip­cians. This the­o­ry made by one man 100 years ago was obso­lete from the begin­ning. The Egip­cians might have built the 3 lit­tle ones and that is all their tech­nol­o­gy allowed them to.

    This was fun­ny

  • Human being says:

    Omg bro enough!! How long you gonna beat that horse he dead already god damn man it’s 2023!! Not 1920 lol bro make a deci­sion for the bet­ter of the rest of your life… u gonna be a vic­tim or a sur­vivor? Right now. Decide bro. White ppl weren’t the only ones that enslaved ppl. The Irish were enslaved the Chi­nese were enslaved the Japan­ese etc etc. its just the way it was bro. Some­one had to do it! Do I like it? No! And think about this for a sec­ond. If your pops and grand­pa and grand dad etc didn’t come over here as slaves… IF you a legit fam­i­ly tree of one. Then where would you be? In Africa? You’d pre­fer that? Lol. Cmon man. You got pro­vid­ed a bet­ter future from the sac­ri­fices of your fam. IF you cap­i­tal­ize on that oppor­tu­ni­ty tho. I love how lil Wayne says don’t tell me that they keep­ing the black man down when I’m a black mul­ti­mil­lion­aire that made it out the 3rd ward mag­no­lia projects. Lol . It’s all mind state. Trust me being white ain’t cool these days every­one wan­na toss shade at us. Enti­tled this and that. We basi­cal­ly get hat­ed on for absolute­ly noth­ing that we per­son­al­ly did. Ever. Any­ways wish you the best bro take care 💯💯

  • Tyler Shapiro says:

    Yeah that’s why we’re in a sort of renais­sance the same way they were in the dark ages then redis­cov­ered clas­sics we’re dis­cov­er­ing that we’ve always been a space far­ing civ­i­liza­tion that it’s not just a bunch of mum­bo jum­bo talked about in bible, Sumer­ian, greek mythol­o­gy , native mythol­o­gy

  • Emon says:

    Real­ly? You’re ask­ing this as a joke rite? Some oil to grease the slabs n make the stones that weighed from 6 to 10 tones each just for the low­er lev­els oh yeah lit­tle bit of veg­etable oil should do it haha­ha. …haha I dun­no maybe answer your own ques­tion slab some oil on a Ford f 350 lube it nice n good and par­al­lel park it eeeee z lol idiot

  • Emon says:

    As ur wait­ing for ambu­lance to arrive in severe pain…you’ll have a nice clear answer that no ! Also want to say NOBODY knows any­thing to it’s fullest and 100% from any­thing that if it’s in the past unless you were there nobody! Just like death can­not know 1fuking hun­dred per­cent what hap­pens when we die until it hap­pens. Peri­od.

  • Darrell says:

    The stones used to con­struct the pyra­mid are not the same size; the lev­els are not the same height ; the stones that make up the bulk of the struc­ture are not per­fect because they did not need to be per­fect. The cas­ing stones were cut per­fect­ly and pol­ished mir­ror smooth. It would take more effort to cast the stones and
    the cast­ed mate­r­i­al would have to cure before addi­tion­al weight could be placed upon them delay­ing your build­ing by years . You would have to move more mate­r­i­al to cast the stones , remem­ber you are using water to mix your mate­r­i­al , the stones would decrease in weight and dimen­sions as the water is lost through the anhy­drous process . That cur­ing process could last for years based on the mass . I’m’ just putting this infor­ma­tion in so it can be con­sid­ered

  • Tyler says:

    I believe that the argu­ment from per­son­al increduli­ty is a log­i­cal fal­la­cy. This is com­pound­ed with the fact we have rig­or­ous sci­en­tif­ic arche­o­log­i­cal sur­veys that brought a lot of evi­dence. We also have a pletho­ra of mod­ern recre­ations. Every sin­gle seri­ous esti­mate pro­vides rea­son­able time frame and logis­ti­cal scale. It’s not as impos­si­ble or as dif­fi­cult as so many seem to stub­born­ly assert.

  • Ellysia says:

    Ancient Egyp­tians weren’t of only one skin tone or race but instead mul­ti­cul­tur­al…

  • Doug says:

    I want to cor­rect some­thing stat­ed in this thread. The Bible does­n’t say that the Israelites built the pyra­mids. It says they pro­vid­ed slave labor to make bricks — what those bricks were used for is not spec­i­fied, as far as I know.

  • Travis says:

    Exact­ly. Sev­er­al inter­est­ing ideas and the­o­ries to enter­taine. Lack­ing the need­ed evi­dence, the­o­ries and ideas are just that(([theories and ideas))]. Ancient peo­ple I very much agree were not dumb, way more intel­li­gent than most peo­ple think, and my per­son­al belief. man has been here on this plan­et far, far longer than 10,000 years.
