How do you think the pyramids were built?

    Just look at that precision. They are aligned almost perfectly. Was this work really done by some 'slaves' who were unwilling and forced to do hard labor? Or, is it possible we are missing a time period from human history, perhaps an unknown civilization that has not been discovered yet (not Aliens, but rather a relative close to homo-sapiens).

    Each stone you see here weighs between 2.5 -15 tonnes (5500 - 33000 lbs)! Isn't that crazy? How were humans back then able to lift and move such heavy structures?

    An interesting fact is that the pyramids were aligned to 'true' north very precisely, with an accuracy that is within one-tenth of a degree. How was that accomplished in the age of sticks and stones?

    Also, as you can see here, the structures actually contain 8 sides, which is only really noticed when looking from above:

    Man.

    There is a video online with an old man moving huge slabs of blocks with basic tools and lifts. If he could do it, so can our past ancestors.

    Technology advances like crazy. Human intelligent doesn't. There were people 2000 years ago that were just as bright as the hawkings of this time.

    Nobody ever asks how they cut the stones so big and it was only figured out a few years ago

    It's kind of insulting to human intelligence to think people were technologically incapable of this stuff. It's still amazing and deserves awe, but more for the feats of logistics and the will/ability to keep the project going.
