They were built in 10,000 BC. Times have changed between than and 2,000 BC.

That site was all one persons opinion, not backed up by anything. If this was someones house, who do you think lived there?

I'm not saying it was a house, I was just using that as an example.
But if it was indeed a house, I can imagine the Pharoah or the Alien hierarchy lived there.

Tomb
house
grainary

They are all good, and i know from the outside the pyramids look big, but from what i have heard they are all to cramped inside, and are much to small for the above three options, i am aware of the Power plant theory, i did a project on it in year 8, once you farmiliarise yourself with it and understand everything it uses to work. resonance, the use of chemicals, it comes together quite nicely, however that isn't what i am really interested in, i just dont think that whether Aliens or Egyptians built it, the technology currently credited to either of them is less than what it would have taken, i realise that they wanted to do this for their pharaoh, but there is only so far physical ability can go over spiritual faith.

I highly doubt these people would build these giant structures so a Pharoah can be big pimpin' in the afterlife, they weren't that stupid.

yes, the pyramids could be seen from the mountains of israel. No reason invite the tomb robbers, also, there is no decorative paint.

If you're talking about no decorative paint on the pyramids, there was a layer of limestone on top to make the pyramids look pretty. They just chipped away over time. There's only the limestone on the tip of the great pyramid left.

The pyramids were completely covered with casing blocks, which, after they were in place, were polished to a bright sheen.
It must have been a wonderful look from, say, across the river--looking as if the pyramids were just three blocks of stone, pyramid-shaped, for the Pharaohs who built them.
Unfortunately, the pyramids, at a later time, became very convient quarries for stone to be used in building Cairo. The only stones of the casing left are a few at the base of the GP, and the tip of Khafre's pyramid.

Actually, the limestone was taken by the Arabs and used to build Mosques.

the casing stone would have made it look pretty, sure, thats what made it visible from the mountains of israel, it was polished, but what i meant about no decorative paint was none of the usual pictures or inscriptions u find in tombs, expecialy the most eloborate one ever made. apparently,

As we know relatively little about the funery beliefs of the ealy egyptians at this point it is quite naive to say that because there is no tomb decoration that there is no proof it is a tomb. The actual Pyramids were all completely robbed in antiquity. How do we know that the texts were not written in papyrus and placed in the burial chamber with the body? I will give an example to highlight what you are saying.

A man walks through what for hundreds of years has been known as a cemetary, he goes down into a crypt and looks about. There is a coffin, which is empty and nothing else. Where is he? Of course he has stumbled across an alien lauch pad. I dont think so.

Take it out of context with the pyramids and your theories look a little silly.

But how do you know that was the original purpose though?
Lets put it modern contexts:
8,000 years from now our ancestors find a few skyscrapers, and think that would be a good place to put their dead, so they put all of their coffins in there.
Now, 4,000 years later, the ancestors of those people stumble upon these ruins, and find the coffins, they're most likely going to think that the skyscraper was a tomb, and not an office building for people 12,000 year ago.
