    Really that just makes you sound pathetic more than it makes their achievements sound impossible.

    This guy moves 20 ton stones by himself in his back yard.



    You don't think an entire crew of expert laborers working for the most powerful man in the region could manage 5x what that guy does for a hobby?

    IMO it was The Nephilim together with Fallen Angels before The Flood:

    Love reading about this stuff but the older I get and the more information I come across, the less impressive I find the pyramids. I know longer believe there's some great "secret" we have yet to discovered.

    I've seen at least 3 videos demonstrating perfectly logical ways they could have moved those big ass stones. They had a LOT of time on their hands too

    Says the guy buying an embezzling hack "archeologist" named Zahi Hawass' theory and a 19th century interpretation of the past based on a 3 inch statue found a 100 yards from the pyramid and a likely forged cartouche by Howard Vyse in the uppermost relieving chamber of the arbitrarily named "king's chamber" that supposedly says "Kufu's gang" in an otherwise utterly anonymous building.

    But what do I know. Oh, and the guy who made the estimate is an expert on limestone. That's literally what he does. You actually couldn't find a better authority.

    With the ocean fossils found it makes us wonder how freaking old they might really be, like where there so long ago that they were built and an ice age ended sea levels rose, long enough for ocean fossils to form , ice age comes get dry water levels lower. Which has happened a bunch of times could have been 3-4 ice age cycles ago for all we know.

    You didn't make one. Someone else did who happens to have obviously faulty premises.

    The limestone bedrock in the area is by nature an ancient sea bed, millions of years old. That is the explanation for the fossils.

    I'm beginning to wonder is us modern people just have a weak grasp on the potential of man power and a diminished sense of work ethic/patience.

    People estimate that it would cost about $5 billion and take 5 years for the industry to create a modern replica.

    They pulled that statistic from their ass.

    Wow.

    Houdin based it on a concrete dam and zero experience outside "professional architect who studied the great pyramid for years and came up with an internal ramp theory with several major (admitted) holes in it"...

    The person I quoted was the head of the industry that supplies ACTUAL LIMESTONE for the Empire State Building and many other large American constructions.

    So let's see, an amateur theorist with an architectural degree aided by HISTORIANS (IE Egyptologists, not a science in any way) based on a concrete damn (not stone) OR a guy who does the exact thing the builders did, cut, quarry and move limestone blocks...

    Someone pulled something out of their ass, and it wasn't Merle Booker.
