The Great Pyramid of Giza
-6 Millions Tonnes
-2.3 million Stone blocks
-stones on outer wall 1-3 Tonnes
-inner walls 80 Tonnes
-Perfectly allined North, East, South and west.
-Allined to the Orion Belt
-Nearest query is 500 miles away
-ALL this in 20 years
which means you need to lay a stone block each in 2 minutes.

I'm not saying aliens done it but something strange happened 4500 years ago. That's all I'm saying.

People are still trying to figure this stuff out based how WE do things. Obviously the builders knew a LOT of things we don't.
Wakey Wakey.

Where there's a will, there's a why . We will never be absolutely certain. Because we were not there.

There's still no explanation of why would aliens need a ramp.

You didn't mention the chamber that is well below ground level and connected to the Queens chamber.... Anyway I'm calling this theory BS..

They didn't use an interior ramp, God Based Magnetism on YouTube explains how the pyramids were built.

FAKE
Observation science eliminates this wacko theory.

attacked you use bronze, copper and bow and arrows?
That makes no sense.

These people where skilled workers.
And they were willing/forced to, risk their lives and their health.
And if they had that kind of super technology...why do they spend 100 of years without building pyramids or temples. Why have they started with easy versions of the pyramids (one level) and rose to graves with more level slowly over time?
And more important...if they had superduper technology...why didn't they use it for war or agriculture?
You use machine-run diamond blades but if you are

egyptian building sites. This is shown by pictures and even findings of the rope.
And it would only Snap if the forces get to strong. But what does reduce the weight? Right. Counterwight. So....all you have to do in order to prevent a rope from snapping is a few people that push the stone. They don't move it...but they reduce the weight if you go uphill.
And if they have done it like it is described in the video...they don't even needed much people to pull (if they lifted the stones)

And yes...it IS impossible that you cut all of this stones that perfectly.
But thats the reason archeologist find half cut or broken stones in the quarry or other places in Egypt. And no...if a saw is fixated it can cut (almost) perfectly, the rest can be done by polishing. They haven't had diamond blades until 1900th century.
And no...if the Amount of man is big enough you can transport everything (more man more power). And they don't had to drag it 1000 of miles.
And yes..rope was used in

sloppy.
But ONLY if you measure it with computer standards.
And that goes for the timescale, too.
If they had super advanced machines they wouldn't need half the lifetime of a Pharaoh. But they had something that was almost (just almost) as good. A gigantic workforce and highly motivated people.
Because...what happens to people who fail with a big building project in our time? They get another job. I guess the Pharaoh wasn't that tolerant if somebody fucked up is monument.

to measure. Putting stones perfectly in line isn't magic.
If you have a look on the mathematical knowledge that the egyptians had, and used for other problems like water supply, temples, etc. you'll see that they are very well able to calculate building projects.
And btw...its not hard to make stones fit perfectly. All you have to do is to polish them by rubbing them against each other or with sand plus...not every stone fitted perfectly. If you measure it with computer standards the work is

In fact they had a stone quarry in the valley of kings...right next to the pyramids. You can even visit it.
And some (special) stones have been transported, yes. They used sleds or (if possible) boats. (As shown on the pictures they painted)
And no...wood-sleds is easily able to keep the stones. Even a pallet (made out of thin planks) is able to carry 4 tons. What do you think could a massive sled do?
And no..the mathematical perfection is not to perfect. All you have to do is to calculate and

Yes copper was very expensive but the Pharaohs didn't had money problems as far as I know.
The saw must be a bit longer than the stone,
you have one person on the one side and one at the other, Lumberjackstyle OR you saw from different sides.
In fact modern saws use the same stuff (i.e. ropes, grips) to stabilize. Only diffrent...ours have teeth instead of sand.
And egyptians have been skilled workers...with good planning, why shouldn't they be able to stack some stones?

Sorry, that time to have copper it like now to have gold.... but this cuts were made clean..if you saw that show u can see its possible... but imagine how big linear saw must been and what to make it so steady? just to big cakes to do it...and then to install them without making any mistakes....now its not easy, what about then? we cant do it....

what records? quarries are there a long time before....religion? can be just based on population which lived there before... Mayan had math, check it out...but we know less of them coz everything were Everybody had capability those days Roman, Macedonian bulding from blocks but these types so far away and on sand, , , , why there?
