Fact: Who Really Built the Pyramids of Giza? Aliens or Geniuses?


The Great Pyramids of Giza
When people think of Egypt, the Great Pyramids of Giza are the first things that come to mind.  They are the iconic image of Egypt and for good reasons.  However, nothing can prepare you for the sense of wonderment you will feel when you first see them for yourself.  They are simply fascinating.  At 4,000 years old, they have outlived the other 6 wonders of the world.  We know why they were built, as tombs for the pharaohs, but how?  Well, I don’t have the answer for that, nor does anyone else, but take a look at all the run down ruins in front of the sphinx, this might be the answer.  This is a town where possibly the tens of thousands of workers lived.  It is thought to be an entire town developed specifically for the purpose of getting the pyramids built.  And despite the Hollywood reputation of ancient Egypt, these workers were not slaves.  Instead, they were skilled farmers that came to build the pyramids during the Nile flood season.  But, despite the evidence, many still think the pyramids were far too advanced for their time to have been built by ancient Egyptians.  Many believe it was aliens, angels, or some other unearthly being.  The engineering is WAY before it’s time and given that modern technology and science can’t even recreate such structures, maybe they were created by an otherworldly being.  Here’s some amazing facts about The Great Pyramid (the one to the right in the photo), also called the Pyramid of Khufu, and I’ll let you decide for yourself how they were created:

There are about 2.3 million limestone rocks, each weighing about 2.5 tons.

The placement of the stones is to the exact same millimeter.

The Pyramid is aligned facing the exact position of North during the time.

The Pyramid sits exactly in the center of the Earth’s land mass.

Okay, now it starts getting tricky!

The perimeter of the base is 36,524.  When divided by 100, it is 365.24, the exact number of days there are in a  tropical year to the exact 5 digits.

The length of the diameter of the Pyramid, when measured as a circle, is also 365.24.

The ratio of the length of Grand Gallery, a room in the Pyramid, to the length of the Kings Chamber is also equal to 365.24.

The height of the Pyramid is 5,449 inches.  This is also the average height of land above sea.

The curvature on the face of the the Pyramid exactly matches the curvature of the Earth.

The descending passage of the Pyramid was exactly aligned with the North Star at the time.

All three of the pyramids are aligned with the belt of Orion.

At noon during the spring equinox, the pyramid has no shadow.

These facts are only a fraction of what makes the Great Pyramid arguably the most remarkable structure in the world.  There are a lot more facts with the precise of engineering, the significance to the calendar, correlations with geometric measurements of the sun and moon, correspondences to the sun and Earth’s radius, similarities to the Earth’s volume and mass and speed around the sun, the speed of light, star alignments, precession of the equinoxes… you get the idea!  The pyramids were really thought through!  The ancient Egyptians were either geniuses of all times, or in fact, the pyramids were built by some supernatural being.  Either way, there is no denying their marvel.  How do you think these mysterious pyramids were built?
