New discovery throws light on mystery of pyramids' construction

The mystery of how, exactly, the pyramids were built may have come a step closer to being unravelled after a team of archaeologists made a chance discovery in an ancient Egyptian quarry.

Scientists researching ancient inscriptions happened upon a ramp with stairways and a series of what they believe to be postholes, which suggest that the job of hauling into place the huge blocks of stone used to build the monuments may have been completed more quickly than previously thought.

While the theory that the ancient Egyptians used ramps to move the stones has already been put forward, the structure found by the Anglo-French team, which dated from about the period that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built, is significantly steeper than was previously supposed possible. ...

No, it was definitely white lightning. Tequila was a song on “Peewee’s Big Adventure.”

Some of that sounds plausible, but the rest bizarre, systematic killing by ibis birds in particular. Even if Herodotus got some of his natural history wrong, the bones are hard to argue with. He was mostly right about hippos and crocs.

Herodotus is a pleasant read, except for the chapters on crazy Greek politics which with all the name-dropping, were hard to follow and boring for me. People forget that Sparta was widely admired by the ancients compared to Athen's democracy, which was in perpetual crisis and tumult. The mob is not to be trusted, as our Founders affirmed and our current events show.

He was apparently an initiate to a mystery religion (I forget which), explaining why he was a bit shy describing some of their practices. Probably just as well.

How the Egyptians built the pyramids is interesting, but what is infinitely more fascinating is how an assembly of slaves with no weapons, no military training, and no military organization rose up and in a very real sense conquered the mightiest nation on earth. “For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.”

I just read up a little more on those winged snakes. The Persians, relating their traits, said that after mating, the female would kill the male by biting it's neck. They also said that instead of laying eggs, the young were born alive, and would bite their way out of the womb, killing the mother. Yikes. I'm assuming the female snakes weren't aware of this before mating.

Interesting stuff, Neil. I think the overall mystery of ancient Egyptian ways and mystique, along with the ancients being a "bunch of dummies" who ran around grunting and swinging clubs, compared to our civilized, and technologically advanced society, complete with architectural engineers, think tanks, and the machinery to move earth, and construct anything, has caused modern society to believe that such simple people in a simple time must have borrowed lost technology from aliens, or enlisted the Nephilim to place those blocks. Herodotus' explanation he passed on is good enough for me. The Egyptians were ingenious, master planners and builders, problem solvers, and had the manpower to get things done.

I looked into the flying serpents, expecting to find some enormous flying beasts, but it seems they were winged snakes, and the Arabians described them to him in a way that makes it seem like they did exist, but long extinct(?)

http://www.wondersandmarvels.com/2013/03/flying-snakes-in-ancient-egypt.html

I know Herodotus gets a bad wrap for his Grecian bias, but much of it was translational issues as well. For example, the giant ants he said spread gold dust or something, were supposedly small foxes that stirred up the dust when they dug, but translated all wrong, etc.

It's not that big a mystery; Herodotus long ago explained how the pyramids were built, here at ¶125:
www.gutenberg.org/files/2707/2707-h/2707-h.htm#link2H_4_0004
No space aliens required!
BTW, Herodotus believed Greek religion came from Egypt.

What I find much more intriguing are the "winged serpents":
www.gutenberg.org/files/2707/2707-h/2707-h.htm#link42H_4_0001
Could these be the "fiery serpents" of Exodus? Winged dinosaurs? While Herodotus isn't totally reliable, I can see no reason why this section isn't genuine. The writer of the footnote in my Penguin edition was baffled.

Well, are you still work with a woman who told me that, (in a former life) she lived in Egypt they used hover craft to move the large blocks in the place. Since I had A first-hand witness of how this was done, none of these studies have ever interested me.
As an aside she also told me what life was like on Atlantis before it sank.... but if I remember right she was a man when she lived in Atlantis.

Someone should have asked Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner how the pyramids were built. They were there.

Jubal and Tubal-Cain proved this out before the Flood (Genesis 4), but that would mean they would have to acknowledge the Bible to be true.

The baffles of the Pyramids just continues to shout to the world that intelligence is not evolving...

We just have access to more knowledge.

Evolution "claim" that these ancient people should technically be dumber than us. But they ain't. Considering that we still can't figure how they built the Pyramids...🧐🤓🤓🧐

In my opinion, I think they used molds to cast the large blocks of stone on site. Hence why there's very little to no space between them. Just my theory.
