The only remaining wonder of the ancient world, the Great pyramid in Egypt has captivated the imagination of millions for thousands of years. Not only are the pyramids in the Giza complex an amazing feat of engineering but they also remain a mystery as to the purpose of such structures. Many of us rarely wonder why would a civilization would spend so much time and resources to create structures meant to last thousands of years. Partly because we have been tough in school that the pyramids were simply tombs for Egyptian pharaohs, however when one starts to ask questions and look deeper into the issue, a mystery emerges.
The most common theory behind the constructions of the pyramids is the one with the least amount of evidence, that they are tombs for pharaohs. There have been no mummies found inside any of the pyramids in the Giza Plateau. We are also told that the 3 large pyramids at Giza were built in intervals of 20 years each so as to match the Pharaohs dynasties.
The great pyramid has 2.3 million stones some of which weigh up to 100 tons and has a base of 13 acres. At 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year the Egyptians had to place a stone every 2 minutes to match this chronology. All of these stones quarried and placed so perfectly that the apex, that is the very tip, is only a quarter of an inch off center. These rocks were placed with amazing accuracy all with vines and copper tools according to mainstream archaeology.
The Egyptians recorded many aspects of their lives in many ways via hieroglyphs, papyrus, sculpture, paintings and more. Yet their most amazing feat, the construction of the pyramids is not mentioned at all. On would think that such a monumental effort would receive at least some kind of acknowledgement in Egyptian records but nothing was ever recorded about its contruction. Not to mention that no writing is found inside any of the Pyramids either.
So who built the pyramids according to the Egyptians? Their answers is the same as many other ancient civilizations like the Mayas and Aztecs. That Sun Gods were responsible for building them as well as giving them knowledge that gave rise to their civilization.
As we touch on these simple details we can see how the original story that is endorsed by mainstream archaeology falls apart.
Unfortunately you will not get a PHD in archaeology and wont be taken seriously if you do not agree with the established history. This is where we meet renegade archaeologists and independent researchers like Graham Hancock who suggest that the Pyramids were actually built around 10,500 B.C. instead of 2500 B.C. which is commonly accepted.
3 facts point to the date of 10,500 B.C.
As for the purpose of the pyramids the theories are many, from inter dimensional portals, energy generators, ancient observatories and more. The secrets of the pyramids are yet to be revealed for those who are willing to swim against the current and defy old paradigms that have been holding back scientific progress since the times of Galileo.
