Kel,

The pyramids aren't going anywhere.They've been there for about 4600 years. Your 15 now. Life expentcy rate is continuosly on the rise so let's say you live to be 85-90. 90 years is about 2% of the lifetime of the pyramids.

Pharaoh Kel, the Egyptians have a saying about the Pyramids of Giza.

"Time fears the Pyramids" Dr. Zahi Harwass

You have lots of time to see them. With the likes of Dr. Harwass protecting Egypt's ancient wonders. I do believe- time really does fear the pyramids today :)

Hawass didn't say that. I think it was an Arab proverb or something. (But count on Zahi to be taking effort for it...)

Hi Tadukhipa, i am sorry you missed read my post. It states clearly that "The Egyptians have a saying." Since i learned of it from Dr. Hawass i put his name there. As he is Egyptian there is no reason why it can't be credited to him especially when it was learned from him.
You have a nice day :)
