You played with building blocks, that weighed only a couple of grams, they played with blocks that weighed TWO TONS, unlike wooden childrens toys when two tons is put down, it stays put, it is a simple concept but not a simple action.

true true, but the accuracy of the pyramids is unbeleivably precise even if you had one hundred thousand men at your disposal only about six or seven of them can handle the stone.

How much easier it would have been if they had machines like we do now.

But they didn't. So what was the point of that post? It would have been easier if they had Satellite Positioning Systems and Computer Networks, but they didn't so why discuss it?

I just dont think it adds up, two tons is very heavy, those pyramids are very high, and precision is everything in the make-up of the pyramid. i think the ancient egyptians need a bit more credit.

Methinks, Tash that you are making a mole hill into a mountain. Thankfully, the ancient Egyptians didn't have folks telling it was impossible to do what their divine god king wanted done.

Again, "Hey, Pharaoh sweetheart, it just can't be done!" Was not something folks said to Pharaoh. :wink:

I never said that they DIDNT or COULDNT build the pyramids, just that they must have been technologicaly more advanced than most people say, why is it so hard to even accept the possibility that the ancient egyptians were just as advanced as us? its like in a thousand or so years it would be quite possible for a CD disk to be misinterperated as a religious artifact. i do see your point of veiw and i want to understand it, but it doesnt seem logical, a man or men can only lift so much weight,

Well on the tomb walls would they not show "CD's" being played and if they had other stuff then would they not be showen also. And they were defeated if they were really advanced why would they ride chariots and stuff. Why not use machine guns , Tanks , the whole works. It may be possible Tash , But it's improbable.

i understand that, but who ever said that their technology was the same as outs, if the technology of the people discovering our CDs was the same as ours now they would deffinitely know what it was, if it had developed over a different path pehaps they wouldnt know, who said that they had the same technology as us? but then again i dont understand it from a technical viewpoint, the historical veiwpoint is different, we just need to make them work together

They do Tash! Why is it so hard for some folks to believe it? Because they have what the Ancient Egyptians didn't have folks clouding the issue with "but we can't do it with what we got! Not with our technology"!

While the Ancient Egyptians did have something that todays doubters lack. The command of the divine god Pharaoh wanting it done.
:wink:

What type of ramp are you talking about, there are many types that have been suggested, what materials were used to make that type of ramp, wood, gravel and or sand are also out of the question as ramp building materials,

its obvious wood is out but the amount of sand or gravel needed would be greater than the mass of the pyramid, ruling out the ramp that spirals up the pyramid because it would be larger than the GP itself that and it would colaps under its own weight, AND it would be extreemly hard to drag a two ton block around such a sharp corner,

The long ramp is also out because it would reach far out beyond the Giza plateu,

and what would they have done with all the leftover materials,

Sekhmet, i think we need to agree to disagree on this one, i know that the egyptians LOVED there gods with the greatest of respect that includes the pharoahs, but,,,, whilst the power of beleif is endless and has NO boundaries Physical power does have limits,
