There are numerous ancient archaeological sites all over this planet that are without explanation. The Great Pyramids at Giza are a great example of this. The modern explanation, taught in ancient civilization classes within our educational institutions, is that they were built by human labor and ingenuity to be a tomb for the Pharaoh Khufu, despite professional Egyptologists dismissing these claims time and time again. The Great Pyramid contains so many incredible facts that have led to questions that remain unanswerable till this day. Another interesting point to note is the fact that multiple pyramids, with multiple perplexing facts were built all over the planet, at different time periods, by civilizations that had no contact with each other whatsoever.
2.5 Million blocks of stone were used to build the pyramid that covers more than 13 acres of land.
Most Egyptologists estimate between 2.3 and 2.6 million blocks of stone were used to build the great pyramid. It’s important to keep in mind that it originally had an outer casing of white limestone blocks that were perfectly polished and fitted. For thousands of years, it looked like a gleaming, white structure like no other. Keep in mind, we are talking about structures that were built sometime between 10,500 BC and 3,500 BC. Over time, earthquakes and erosion were responsible for what we see today.
What power could have moved these stones? Each stone has been estimated to weigh approximately between 2 and 20 tonnes each. Think about that, that’s 2.5 million blocks of stone that weight between 2 and 20 tonnes each. How did they cut the blocks with laser like precision and fit them perfectly in place? How did they lift and transport the rocks from their original position? How did they move across the terrain, dessert, water,and sand and then lift them on top of each other in order to build the pyramid?
Even if the workers had achieved the impossible and unimaginable feat of ten blocks piled up on top of each other a day, they would have assembled the 2.5 million stone blocks into the stone pyramid in about 250,000 days, that’s 664 years, not even long enough for the one whom it was supposedly built for to see its completion.
“It would be impossible to assemble enough men even around a 9,000 pound stone that is perhaps only three and a half feet by three and half feet. To lift this stone onto and off of a barge, and then to maneuver it in place on the pyramid would take ten men, three on each side and two at each end. This placement means that each man, if all lifted equally, would be lifting 900-pounds. Obviously such a miraculous display of strength not only seems impracticable, but impossible. These pyramids built by the Egyptians 4,000 to 4,500 years ago are one of the seven wonders of the world. If there were any references to any machines used in building pyramids they may have burned in the fires of the Alexandrian Library.” -Richard Coslow
