There are some good theories in there, especially the part about the counter-weight.
Oooo...sounds interesting...you'll know there will be a documentary on Discovery sooner or later
I think the construction theories are good, but I'm also not convinced that the Egyptian culture (as we know it) even built the great pyramid.
It has been said that before the locals plundered it of it's smooth outer casing, it was nearly covered in some odd, non-Egyptian script, and water marks (probably from the Nile flooding) could be seen circling it at various intervals, some almost reaching the top.
This goes well with the new evidence of the Sphinx being 10,000 years (or more) old. It saddens me to think what we could have learned from it if the locals would have left it alone.
dude, dont go there. youre encouraging eyeballkid.
still pretty amazing this kinda stuff still baffles boffins. then again, its just the french.
They weren't built by aliens, so I don't know why he would care.
i thought they had already said this some time back. I could be wrong, but around the time they started to find a Queen's chamber, and that the only door was from some air shaft and stuff. makes sense though. Building inside out ensures the rarest of treasure stays with royalty.
There's a theory that Pyramids were built by those who lived in Atlantis. They say atlases have teached the first human civilization how to live. Oh yaeh, and the first pharaoh Osiris was an atlas!
Except that they probably weren't built for royalty. There is only a small amount of very circumstantial evidence that points to the great pyramid being a tomb, or even being built for a pharaoh.
In fact, its very construction went against burial rites and practices of the time of the ruler it's connected to, never mind the fact that no pharaoh was ever even buried in it.
Amazes me how much we can still be suprised by things right here on Earth.
Kills me that a Frenchie figured it out, though.
That reminds me of the Library of Alexandria and what knowledge has been forever lost with its destruction.
Excuse me? I enjoy ancient history as much as the next guy. Especially ancient alternate history...ya know...the stuff thats not in the history books.
Or...the stuff you are talking about.
That event is imo the saddest event in history. So many great books destroyed...all those great Roman and Greek writings, probably bible stuff and more. I cannot remember, which crusade did that event happen in? 10th?
That's how it works, a great civilization gets pounded into nothing by people who could care less about what was achieved.
Man we all know the Aliens helped make those things.
Do you really believe in ALIENS??
french + pyramids = kung pow
I didn't realize that the pyramid was againt the rights and practices. My egyptian history is rather poor. I admit to watching too much discovery channel
