Memes and jokes aside, how were the Pyramids built?
4,500 years ago the wheel wasn't even invented, how could these people haul boulders the weight of 5 trucks up hundreds of feet?
Google internal ramp theory.
THere is a ramp inside at top.
AS POTUS I will answer every question in the world.
that figure is estimated based on stone erosion. the pyramids were covered in granite. meaning 4,500 since the granite veneer was chipped away or shaken loose.
arab historians write of this anecdotally, but don't give a definitive timeline. and that the stones were used to rebuild cairo and were intricately drawn with hieroglyphs.
It's quite simple actually. Let me explain it.
that image is offensive, it represents my peoples oppression. TAKE THEM DOWN NOW.
Well who really knows when the wheel was invented anyway. It's all speculation thanks to the religitards and their book burning.
Artificial peaks thereon we can raise! So did Ningishzidda to the leaders say.
On a tablet the image of smooth-sided, skyward rising peaks for them he drew.
If it can be done, let it so be! Enlil with approval said. Let them also as beacons serve!
On the flatland, above the river's valley, Ningishzidda a scale model built,
The rising angles and four smoothsides with it he perfected.
Next to it a larger peak he placed, its sides to Earth's four corners he set;
By the Anunnaki, with their tools of power, were its stones cut and erected.
Beside it, in a precise location, the peak that was its twin he placed;
With galleries and chambers for pulsating crystals he designed it.
When this artful peak to the heavens rose, toplace upon it the capstone the leaders were
Of electrum, an admixture by Gibil fashioned, was the Apex Stone made.
The sunlight to the horizon it reflected, by night like a pillar of fire it was,
The power of all the crystals to the heavens in a beam it focused.
When the artful works, by Ningishzidda designed, were completed and ready,
The Anunnaki leaders the Great Twin Peak entered, at what they saw they marveled;
Ekur, House Which Like a Mountain is, they named it, a beacon to the heavens it was.
That the Anunnaki the Deluge survived and prevailed forever it proclaimed.
Ninmah, by the occasion moved, a poem recited and sang:
House that is like a mountain, house with a pointed peak,
For Heaven-Earth it is equipped, the handiwork of the Anunnaki it is.
House bright and dark, house of heaven and Earth,
For the celestial boats it was put together, by the Anunnaki built.
House whose interior with a reddish light of heaven glows,
A pulsating beam that far and high reaches it emits;
Lofty mountain of mountains, great and lofty fashioned,
Beyond the understanding of Earthlings it is.
House of equipment, lofty house of eternity,
Its foundation stones the waters touch, its great circumference in clay is set.
House whose parts are skilfully together woven,
The great ones who in the skies circle to a resting make descent;
House that for the rocketships is a landmark, with unfathomable insides,
By Anu himself is the Ekur blessed.
Thus did Ninmah at the celebration recite and sing.
you'd just need to move them to a waiting barge from the quarry and from the barge to the build site at the other end
actually not that hard, especially when you have an army of slaves using these techniques
but the egyptians didn't have slaves, the pyramids are 12,000 years old if not more, and no reed barge is large enough to carry that mass.
i know how it was built, duhhh, the egyptians wanted a giant triangle built, and used jew slaves for their sorcery, and within a hurry they build androids that did their bidding for them.
because a roof shuts them off from the skygod and is equivalent to living in the underworld. a pyamid's point may be theoretically infinite and therefor open ended. carrying on forever.
>4,500 years ago the wheel wasn't even invented
There are some really clever ways of moving big shit. It's a matter of backing off and getting out of the mindset that you need big trucks, cranes, etc... to do it and then looking at what is available.
Start looking at a lot of ancient technology, and you'll start to understand that those ancients and even those cave men weren't dumb.
>It's all speculation thanks to the religitards and their book burning.
>4,500 years ago
Oldest Egyptian pyramids were built 2600BC. The wheel was likely invented around 4500BC, and was in use for transport by 3500BC. Where the fuck did you go to school?
They were built by the great megalith building maritime civilization which existed before the Younger-Dryas period 12,800 to 11,600 years ago.
This was a civilization with the organization of Rome, the navigation of Phoenicia and the trade network of Vikings.
The advanced astronomical understanding used to build these megaliths was developed by this civilization as a means to navigate in open seas. This is why they preserved the info in stone, so that their society's greatest accomplishment, global maritime trade, would not be lost forever.
This is why stone buildings are mirrored on start patterns from 12 centuries ago. This is why all world languages have similar root words. This is why all cultures have ancient myths about a great deluge and a high society which existed before it.
Humans didnt sit around doing nothing for 190,000 years and then suddenly all develop agriculture and writing at the same time, worldwide, about 10,000 years ago.
We have been farming, trading, and living in large cities for a long time. A cometary impact on the North American continent roughly 11.5k years ago lead to the flood, the extinction of 90% of all mega fauna in the Americas, and reset the clock on advanced civilization
>4,500 years ago the wheel wasn't even invented, how could these people haul boulders the weight of 5 trucks up hundreds of feet?
There's an interesting project someone did. They built a replica of Stonehenge by hand on their own, using no cranes or pulleys. Instead using a beam lever and pivots.

>basic research skills are not taught in schools
>you have to memorize everything otherwise it is not legitimate knowledge
American education, folks.
From what I learned, it had a lot of voluntary work for free because it had a religious goal.
Back then, most people were cultivators and worked with the rhythm of the Nile. It was common for them to have nothing to do for months, and the living god wanted them to join the greatest project in all history of mankind, something that would impress the gods.
hew hew hew, on the contrary they intermarried ad pretty much took it over, then were repelled because they did what Jews always do since the beignning of time - tried to take it over.
Then we got a crpytic sob story about them being slaved and leaving.
>come from super advanced civilization capable of traversing the galaxy
>go to Earth to play in sand and stack rocks
It was built a ages ago, definitely not as recent as 4500
Also 'muh aliums' fags please get out, same with you creationists and historians who think the Egyptians could make these things in like 3 days as is currently postulated by most left-leaning historical committee.
I post this every time the pyramids come up and hardly anyone watches it because it's 20 mins long. This is how the pyramids were built.
Some historians realized that if you press limestone gravel and bind it with water, you can create blocks that appear identical to those on the pyramids. They even made a demo where like five of them made like six blocks in an afternoon with nothing other than buckets and planks.
I'll search for the video. Note that not all historians agree on this idea, especially considering most of them write books holding different theories and they would pass for idiots and lose their business of someone finally found the answer. But of all, it's the least retarded, and it's been proven to work and actually used.
Graham's pretty based, nowadays the old man has been getting into the whole acid-trippy 'aliums and spirtual' hoo-ha but he's still making valid scientific/historical analyses so it doesn't matter much.
Anyone in here interested in this shit please look up Graham Handcock on Youtube and view the videos on his research of ancient history.
Seems pretty retarded for larger rocks, but in all honesty this construction method would require a much higher understanding of engineering than we give the ancient Egyptians credit for.
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER
They floated the pieces into place and used buoyancy while the water also kept them cool. There is no better theory than this video, at all, don't even try.
no it makes perfect sense for large rocks, much more sense than slaves doing it with pulleys and levers. That's retarded, they had the same brains in their heads that we have now and they were an advanced civilization. It is not me or the producer of this video that are overestimating the capabilities of the ancient Egyptians but you who is underestimating them.
If you actually watch the video there is lots of evidence presented that demonstrate that this is the way the pyramids were built and evidence to suggest that this technique was also used in Indonesia thousands of years ago.
If we are believing the hieroglyphs then more problems emerge
the pyramids are built in 20 years according to the hieroglyphs, simply not posible
Yeah but historians seem to paint them as brain-dead retards that magically discovered how to build giant stone monoliths and did it in short order because "why the fuck not?"
It's ridiculous. The pyramids probably have a much older and deeper cultural history that we've yet to discover. Many many chambers left untouched thus far that probably have hieroglyphs detailing historical and religious shit that they felt like 'writing' down.
>literally 3rd-world tier public education system
>looks at list of most prestigious schools
ah I see, I read your first post as implying that the Egyptians couldn't have used this method because they were dummies, in fact you were saying the opposite.
It is always the way, people always believe that the time they are living in is one of enlightenment and intelligence and that times long ago the people were just stupid.
I herd they builded them with superstrong oxen, from before oxen became degenerate race-mixers.
what this documentary. it will blow your fkn mind and you´ll really get the feeling that aliens already visited the planet. especially at the end you´ll shit your pants.
they are made of cut sandstone. allegedly they had a outer layer of limestone at one point
sand stone isnt that dense/heavy versus many other types of rock
the obvious answer is that a group of 4 men push the block until the reach the edge of the pyramid being built.
the block is tilted towards the edge of the lowest layer level and sort of rolled on top of it by pushing and lifting. multiple people doing this would allow for both to happen at the same time
its a desert. nothing but loose sand every where . less friction than hard packed earth or a road. the sand stone isnt as heavy as granite. stone henge is more impressive than the pyramids
You didn't need the wheel when you could make cylinders that could act like wheels. You just place a flat surface on top of those cylinders like a plank or board.
There's evidence of this at abandoned Inca sites. Ofcourse it's more sophisticated than a plank on cylinders. The boards would hook onto other boards creating what looked like a train. They were made of rock. The forefathers of the Incas in the Caral Supe Valley built pyramids that are older than 6,000 years.
My educated guess though.
From what I learned in school. The Egyptians used slaves, ropes, pullies and slopes but it sounds like it's missing a few things. The cylinders and planks. How else do you bring such giant rocks to the building site?
Actually the historians rejected slavery as method to built the pyramids, everyone talking about slaves lived centuries after they were built, and archeological evidence tell us that were used craftsman with a salary.
Pretty sure the stones were cut before being transported. That's what the giant reservoirs connected to the canals were for. Most of the year was spent sculpting and when flood season came they'd flood that fucker and float them sons 'a bitches to their destination.
Congratulations on winning the "dumbest post of the day" award.
Not the only ways, of course, but it's simple as fuck. if you're not a mouth-breathing idiot on the internet, that is.
Sure it is. Remember, egypt drafted at least one son per household to work on the pyramids for a set amount of years. Just like the military.
That's enough labor with the tech at the time to accomplish what was needed.
no, I'm clearly not.. I'm SUGGESTING that it may not have been
what do you make of the water erosion marks on the sphinx? is that something that would happen if it was a desert like it is today?
Laws of physics still apply.
It was harder, but still humanly possible as proven by this man.
This guy wasn't even a physicist or a scientist of any sort, so imagine the scholars at the time who were practically dedicating their life to building the pyramids, and there was much much less to be distracted by.
These guys had all day to think about how to move a stone.
This was ONE guy, who practically figured this out in his spare time, vs all of Egypt who were gonna dedicate every damn day to the job.
Obviously the ancient Egyptians had 50% female representation. A truly Ideal workforce and they were able to accomplish amazing feats
nuh uh, you're bigotry and privilege are off the charts, you clearly don't even notice what you are doing, if only you were as highly moral as I myself am, I pity you, lesser life form
the ramjet pump was invented to move water uphill
it looks identical to the tomb diagram of the giza pyramid
the water could have pushed a striker against a piezoelectric rock, making electricity but thats a real stretch
sitchens is awesome, although I still distrust becos jewish freemason
can't refute el(god) being single and elohim(gods) being plural in the bible in hebrew though
and tohou va bohou meaning barren and a wasteland, not without form and void
They used water. The large blocks are much easier to move in water; the stone can be made to float with animal skins; and by using a roofed canal these blocks will naturally float to the top, where the gates can be opened and the blocks retrieved, with only a few strong locks.
It's a bunch of stones topped onto each other. Have you seen a skyscrapper?
Jesus fuck me running. The pyramids aren't that impressive. You give me an army of slaves and a bunch of stones and I'll build one for you in a couple years.
I read from a highly factual excerpt from a well-established egyptian historian that the original inhabitants of Africa, the black nubians carved and moved objects with the power of their minds, i.e. telekinesis.
>guy shows how to move objects the weight of small houses using primitive technology

where does it say that?
I'm trying to move you 100 foot up in the air, and 30 foot away from your building right now, is it working?
aah, now it makes sense
you will not be disappointed bro, have a calculator handy
especially when you look at the various temple sites and the proportions to eachother, check "the code" on YT
>see we wuz kings thread in November
>want to make fellow /pol/iticians laugh
>mfw a joke became a reality
All you faggots forget this wasn't the current year. They could throw people at this project literally not giving two shits if it killed them. There wasn't a media then saying it wasn't right. Slaves did that shit, pushed rocks up slants, all day every day, until it was done, simple as.
>Why aren't incredible monuments
Because devoting manpower and wealth to building monuments to kings is a waste of resources. National wealth is spent on more useful things like bridges , rockets or stockpiling weapons.
>Slaves did that shit, pushed rocks up slants
Actually current thinking is that the workforce that built the great pyramid consisted of a well paid voluntary workforce partially motivated by religion. Like the generations of people who worked on cathedrals in Europe. At its height the workforce building the great pyramid was around 25,000. No alien technology needed.
What you faggots don't realize is that people 10000 years ago were as intelligent as people today.
Pyramids were not even the most impressive thing built, just one of the few ones that survived.
When you reach 100% black population, these things just happen on their own.
Doyou honestly think the Liberals alive today where any smarter than these people?
"Da IQ iz increasing is a lie"
Advancement is the only thing that increase
I MEAN LOOK AT THE PYRAMIDS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
the pyramids are made of wood? wow
what wood has been found in the pyramids? where was it? and what proof is there that it was put there at the same time the pyramids were built?
egyptian dynasties presupposes that the pyramids were built as tombs... when no mummies have ever been found in a pyramid
My theory, perhaps I am a dumbass, is that something else built them before the Egyptians. An ancestor to modern man or ancient people with tech we have lost. To reiterate, I could be a giant dumbass.
>In b4 aliens
>the pyramids are made of wood? wow
What is reading comprehension?
Also, the pyramids were originally built to house the bodies of Pharaohs but the mummies were moved to the much more discreet (so discreet they were unopened 4000 years) Valley of Kings.
Here is a wooden boat found within a pyramid
Also, carbon dating of the mummies as well as the rope found on the seal to king Tuts tomb would provide ample evidence of c. 2500 ish pyramids
>Also, the pyramids were originally built to house the bodies of Pharaohs but the mummies were moved to the much more discreet (so discreet they were unopened 4000 years) Valley of Kings.
how can we prove this? is there any evidence that the mummies were ever put in the pyramids and later moved? or is it just as, or more, likely that the mummies were put directly into the valley of kings?
the presence of a rope doesn't indicate when it was put there
kek. It's like if a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound? When the population is 100% nig magical things happen. As soon as a honky shows up every kang and kween loses their crowns and magical abilities.
Apologies Bongfriend, I will attempt to answer,
I don't believe it can be 'proved', but as with most things in both ancient history and science assumptions can be made using logic and the little evidence we have until more evidence is unearthed to either refute or bolster the previous argument
I see what you are saying, but it seems to me that it is not just equally likely, but more likely that the mummies were placed in the valley of the kings, rather than in the pyramids then moved
Not that we can ever tell, like you said
Oh wow. Ayy fags btfo
by the way, anybody have an opinion on synchronicity? I was just thinking about how stupid it is to believe humans couldn't construct the pyramids.
Grave-robbing was especially prevalent, it would make logical sense to tell all the plebs the loot is stored in the giant monument to the gods but then instead move it to an undisclosed location
those water channels for 1, but for 2 through 99999999999999999999999999, a fuck ton of slave labor. You can accomplish just about anything when you have essentially infinite expendable human beings to throw at it.
The wheel had been independently invented in several places by 4500 years ago, and the Egyptians likely could have conceived of such a thing, if it had been of use to them. But the wheel would not have mattered for the construction of the largest pyramids. They could not have made a structure with wheels (or an axle, if they also had axle technology) capable of carrying that kind of load on that kind of terrain over that kind of a distance.
We don't even have many vehicles that could perform that task.
They obviously used rolling tools that were completely independent of the freight and the source of its momentum, like logs underneath the blocks of stone. And a fuck of a lot of slaves.
whats that one again? that coincidences happen?
also religious fervor could be an explanation, or simple monetary greed
if it was a monument to the gods, why build the main pyramids as a version of orions belt? what do you make of that?
and why encode pi and phi, to 6 decimal places?
and why is the centre of the great pyramid at lattitude 29.9792458?
and the speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 m/s?
just a coincidence?
Idk, I guess we just stopped trying and realized we'd never surpass the original wonders.
Just a coincidence? partly (the latitude thing defo) source on the pi? and I believe the Egyptians studied astronomy to an extent, imagine how clear the night sky would be with zero light pollution
> just pointing out something that has yet to be proven fact.
Yeah, kinda like gravity hasn't been proven a fact yet.
You are a certifiable retard if you don't believe carbon dating works. These methods aren't just adopted and people go "well shit, this probably works kinda accurately!"
Maybe you don't realize this because you're a pathetic NEET but there are scientists who literally devoted every day of their lives to simply testing and retesting analytical methods like radiometric dating to make sure it works accurately.
The pyramids and parts of the sphynx are the last remnants of the previous advanced civilization.
The indian myths even describe how those civilizations manged to nuke each other quite literally into the stoneage.
My guess for our civilization is that even less from our cycle will remain if we don't get our shit together very soon.
Even plastic is fucking biodegradable and won't be there anymore 10.000 years after our civilization is gone.
There is so much proof for humanity being older than the proposed 10.000 year timeframe we get forcefed since 1950 or so
islam is only 1400 years old, the pyramid is at least 4000, maybe 10 or 12000 years old
it's not up for debate that the three main pyramids are a representation of orions belt, the angles of the stars match those of the pyramids
more info on pi and phi here http://blog.world-mysteries.com/science/the-great-pyramid-and-the-speed-of-light/
if youreally want to blow your mind, check this out...
>don't believe carbon dating works
not sure what side you are on, but it's difficult to date stone because its mostly all as old as the earth is, and objects that are dateable can be moved
gobekli tapi for one
also, the indian myths mention sky chariots, or "chariots of the gods"
my favourite myths are the book of enki, the oldest known creation myth... although I'm not sure if we can trust the translation completely
The Pyramids were constructed mostly by cast concrete slabs using their own brand of concrete of limestone, lime, and diatomaceous earth. Some of the large granite slabs were hauled into position however and no one knows how the fuck they moved 70 tonne slabs of rock into position without the use of aliens.
>Yeah, kinda like gravity hasn't been proven a fact yet.
Gravity is a fact. Who is claiming gravity doesn't exist?
>You are a certifiable retard if you don't believe carbon dating works
Measuring the remaining levels of C14 in an organic substance is a fact.. Assuming that the level of creation of C14 today & millions of years ago -- is the same -- is not a fact.
Science is based on fact; not hyperbole. I simply pointed out that the rate of C14 production millions of years ago could be the same as today or it may not..
your assumption that I am a retard only shows the depth at which you will defend the blue pill you swallowed in childhood.
I see, anything that is difficult to believ emust be false
yes, it's getting late fellow bong, would recommend you check out the vids I posted earlier, at least give each 10 min... then see how many coincidences you can explain away as tinfoil, or alternatively find a way of disproving the theories or observations
Stuff like the baltic sea anomaly or the countless other "natural geological formations" are also remnants of previous cycles that have been through so much weathering that they appear to be "natural formations" to people who really dont want to believe anything other than what they learned since they were kids
Imagine if I gave you thousands of robots with human intelligence and human strength and obeyed you completely, and told you to build a pyramid. Wouldn't seem so hard, would it?
That's the power of slavery.
>baltic sea anomaly
interesting, not heard of that before
heard about some pyramids in the waters off of japan
WE WUZ ALYUMS MANG!!
not played civ for years... amazing how long a game would take, I remember playing alpha centauri though
you would start playing at like 4pm and suddenly it would be 6am
you are missing some important info, like how they lifted such blocks, how they shaped them, how were they moved
only after the wonderful mass-murdering torturer died
>That's the power of slavery.
That's the power of indoctrination.
convincing someone that what they are doing is right is far better. its why the USMC exists.
NOONE on the planet would volunteer to jump off a landing craft and charge a machine gun, but this is a marines job..
Thankfully, there are just enough "FEW & PROUD" idiots to keep the gubment from drafting my ass to do it.
you do realize that building a pyramid takes generations right?
they used logs like wheels
a caternery is the shape made by a chain hanging between 2 fixed points
if you invert that shape and make it out of wood or something, you can roll a square shaped object along it, and the centre stays at the same height
so if you use caternaries, you can roll square blocks as if they were round blocks
