Read this and it should leave you to wonder if we were capable of this


-The oldest structure in existence, having been started 4,617 years ago, it is the sole remnant of the Seven Wonders of the World.

- It is built to face true North ( If you stand next to the north side of the pyramid of giza and go straight you will hit the north pole and its only off by one inch)

- The Pyramid is located at the exact center of the Earth's land mass. That is, its East-West axis corresponds to the longest land parallel across the Earth, passing through Africa, Asia, and America. Similarly, the longest land meridian on Earth, through Asia, Africa, Europa, and Antarctica, also passes right through the Pyramid. Since the Earth has enough land area to provide 3 billion possible building sites for the Pyramid, the odds of it's having been built where it is are 1 in 3 billion

(I can't fathom how in the hell the Egyptians figured this one out they just didn't have the technology to do so. But wait its gets better this is what we didn't learn in history class)


-The casing stones, 144,000 in all, were so brilliant that they could literally be seen from the mountains of Israel hundreds of miles away. On bright mornings and late afternoons, sunlight reflected by this vast mirrored surface of 5-1/4 acres distinguished the Pyramid as being visible from the moon.

(This is a fact that most people don't know the pyramids where white yes they where bright white. The casing stones weighed between 2 tons and 11 tons each had it not been for an earthquake they would still be there. So if you where to look at them before those casing stones where removed the pyramids would have looked like a one stone structure. (Not the jumbled mess it is now)But that earthquake shook lose those stones and the Arabs used them to build the great city of .)


(Note: For those interested in possible symbolic significance, in Bible prophecy 144,000 is the number of people-12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel-who are supposed to evangelize the world at the end time.)


-Amazingly, the outside surface stones are cut within 0.01 (1/100th) inch of perfectly straight and at nearly perfect right angles for all six sides. And they were placed together with an intentional gap between them of 0.02 inch. Modern technology cannot place such 20-ton stones with greater accuracy than those in the Pyramid. Even more amazing is that the 0.02-inch gap was designed to allow space for glue to seal and hold the stones together. White cement that connected the casing stones and made them watertight is still intact and stronger than the blocks that it joins.

(When I first read this fact it hit me pretty hard just read it again)

- We know from geometry that there is a universal relationship between the diameter of a circle and its circumference. Consider this: The height of the Pyramid's apex is 5,812.98 inches, and each side is 9,131 inches from corner to corner (in a straight line). If the circumference of the Pyramid is divided by twice its height (the diameter of a circle is twice the radius), the result is 3.14159, which just happens to be pi. Incredibly, this calculation is accurate to six digits. So the Pyramid is a square circle, and thus pi was designed into it 4,600 years ago. Pi is demonstrated many times throughout the Pyramid.

-Other numbers are also repeated throughout. Each of the Pyramids four walls, when measured as a straight line, are 9,131 inches, for a total of 36,524 inches. At first glance, this number may not seem significant, but move the decimal point over and you get 365.24. Modern science has shown us that the exact length of the solar year is 365.24 days

This is a lot of information about the earth for human beings to know 4,600 years ago. But wait, it gets even more chilling:-The average height of land above sea level (Miami being low and the Himalayas being high), as can be measured only by modern-day satellites and computers, happens to be 5,449 inches. That is the exact height of the Pyramid.

-All four sides of the Pyramid are very slightly and evenly bowed in, or concave. This effect, which cannot be detected by looking at the Pyramid from the ground, was discovered around 1940 by a pilot taking aerial photos to check certain measurements. As measured by today's laser instruments, all of these perfectly cut and intentionally bowed stone blocks duplicate exactly the curvature of the earth. The radius of this bow is equal to the radius of the Earth.

Not that trippy.

Some of it is just good engineering, and the rest is numerology, where you can pretty much make anything mean anything.

all that sounds good, but where's the proof to back all that up? Maybe a link. not that you would be pulling our legs or making it up, but someone could just as easily fabricate numbers and theories.

I've seen a couple documentaries on the pyramids, and from what I recall, what he's saying is pretty much true. So did they have help, or were they much better engineers/mathematicians than we give them credit for?

At any rate, its an incredible feat of engineering to still be around 4600 years later no matter what the facts of their construction.

Aside from Pamela Anderson's boobs, I can't think of anything modern society has produced that may last as long.

Whoa. But where's the Stargate?

Buried under the paws of the Sphinx.

Honestly, its really not that hard to believe what they accomplished. From a mathematical standpoint we did not really get going until the time of the enlightenment a few hundred years ago. So it is probable they could have been even more advanced mathematically than we are today. I saw something the other day about Archimedes manuscript, it was lost for hundreds of years and was just recently found. If it had never been lost, we would currently be 300 years more advanced in math.He actually had the beginnings of Calculus in there hundreds of years before Isaac Newton was born. All of our electronics and technology is because of our current knowledge of math. Imagine if we were 300 years more advanced.

All fascinating, and the above set of trivia barely scratches the surface of the truly marvelous wonders of the Great Pyramid.

You don't understand the history of psychology, like the Egyptians understand the history of psychology.

Like the aliens didn't intend for all of that when they placed it there...
