I believe it was all accomplished by them having a persistence towards a particular purpose.
Yes i understand having a purpose BUT how did they do it ? How many people were used. Thad to stay some placwe and had to eat. Think about this out in the MIDDLE of empty sand. The jungle offers more food but harder to move things

Looking into a distand past or near future is just our best guess, but it is still a guess, has some similarity with the discriminator on our detectors.....
The truth is, i do not really know what is going on in my country right now.....

What I do know is people are addicted to absurd beliefs, and, or behaviours. The desire can be strong enough in the individual through reinforced neural pathways that the mind will block information that goes against the desire. For instance these videos below will cause cognitive dissonance in some people.

Oh, heck, I don't even know how my home was built and that was within my lifetime and in spite of seeing houses (and other buildings) built.

Some archaeologists have built smaller replicas or moved stones within a few weeks with the help of grad students and volunteers to address particular problems (i.e. pyramid ramps, stone heads of Easter Island, a henge stone). Imagine what could be commanded of a population by a pharaoh. Also, when people are well-fed there is plenty of time to observe, imagine, and develop improvements.

I 'believe' in aliens -- but mostly as tourists to the quaint villages.

There are hieroglyphics of most things from the culture that erected the pyramids, but none of the pyramids construction.
Why is that ?
My guess is the ruler at the time looking forward did NOT want people to remember how they were constructed.
Slaves and thousands of them.
I imagine that it was a work or die situation for them.
History repeats itself.
Seen any news stories lately of historical statues being torn down ?
Someone or many are trying to hide away our current history.
That's my current thoughts on the issue.
Sandstone can be shaped by rapidly flowing water.
I guess they could have carved the basic shape into large blocks and then using fine measurements, use a river to sculpt the stone to the dimensions required.
Simple channeling of water.

There were no slaves involved in the construction of the pyramids. Egyptian farmers (most of the population) were moved to the pyramid sites during the annual river flooding of their lands. During the flood season and after harvest they worked on the pyramid construction. This is very well documented.


There were about 20,000 workers on the three biggest pyramids. Only about 4.000 of those were permanent workers and the rest were ordinary citizens that provided about three months of labor a year as a civic duty. It appears all citizens had to perform civic duty. All these workers were well fed and well cared for. Medical treatment was available for all the workers equally. If they died while they were working on a pyraimid they were buried in individual tombs on site that were decorated by their families. Often the worker's job on the pyramid was illustrated on the walls of their tomb, much of what we know about the tools and methods used to build the pyramids was learned from these tomb drawings.

The pryramids took about 20 each years to build. Egyptian culture has existed for more than 2,500 years The citizens performed other civic duties when not working on the pyramids. Besides the obvious temple projects etc. they spent most of their civic duty time building and maintaining the extensive irrigation system that fed their nation.

I've seen that coral castle show,pretty impressive for one guy But .It and the stones are much smaller scale than that of Giza & pyramids in S. America.
Visited Coral Castle as a kid about 8 or 9. I pushed a solid coral door, weighing several tons, 360 degrees on a central pivot with one finger. That is a most amazing place, built by a single man. So just imagine what could be done with several thousand workers, as they had for some of those projects mentioned. And I think maybe he had a little help once in awhile.

The great pyramid in ordered to be built in 20 years would have required 315, 2-3 ton blocks to be set in place daily. Did they take a day off ever? Also common sense dictates the higher you go the slower the work progresses. Bear in mind the entire structure was coated in a thick finish coat that also would have taken time to apply. To, the large stones had to be shaped and transported from the quarry some distance away. I have no doubt that there are many questions as to how and when the pyramids were built but constricting the time to 20 years seems a stretch. I would love to defer to the archeologists but they have been incorrect about so many things over the years I think I will just remain amazed at what we don't really know.

Do your research. I remember reading one article some time ago that the workers were well fed, and cared for.

Why watch Ancient Alien highly speculative, and disinformation based fantasy when reality is far more interesting?

Yeah.. but Ancient Aliens has comparatively really great photography and graphics.

As for the pyramid workers, there is a village (where they lived) and burials near great pyramids on the plateau. None of the villages of ancient Egypt are far from the Nile (transportation and fishing) and the basic agricultural crops were grains for bread and beer. Also onions and garlic -- which aren't that difficult to grow and are also easy to store.
