    I always find the mystique of pyramids hilarious. If you think about it rationally, it was the easiest shape to use when building something tall. To believe that aliens or something mysterious was involved, is just moronic.

      Really thats it, its a brain dead easy way to stack shit that they even form naturally in mountains and sand dunes.
      The mystery with the Egyptian one is how they hauled the large rocks up there and how accurate it lined up with some stars.

        Egyptians had incredibly smart astronomers, as for the rocks, we know there's a lot of ways they could do it, but what we don't know is which method they used, simply because they thought it was common sense and never recorded it

        Mesoamerican pyramids were platforms for temples, not tombs. Bodies were occassionally buried there in some cultures, most notably and extensively amongst the Maya in the Classic Period, but it was more akin to how people were sometimes buried beneath churches and mosques in Medieval times rather than egyptian tomb-building. And by the time the spanish showed up, It was a privilege exclusive to priests and sacrificial victims instead of royalty.

          Exactly. It's the same reason Christianity has preached the immortality gospel for two millennia.
          A pyramid was part of a massive spell that allowed the pharaoh to live after death. IIRC in the earliest form of the Egyptian religion, it was the only way to achieve the afterlife. In the later forms, there was an afterlife for all people, but the pharaoh still needed magic to retain his power and wealth in the afterlife.

                These other factors are clearly in line with Apepi assisting in the construction. If it wasn't Apepi assisting them, then who was it? What is your grand idea? Nameless aliens that left no trace of themselves? For no reason? Just cuz?

                Jews were never in Egypt and the pyramids were built not by slaves but free peasants in the months the Nile flooded the fertile plains.

                No texts exist that detail the construction of the pyramids at Giza, texts from the old kingdom state they already existed and that they (the ancient Egyptians) just occupied the sight and tried their best to copy the building techniques.
                The only texts about the great pyramid is dated to Khufu's time period and details the quarring and replacement of broken casing blocks.

                He isn't the collection of stories. My intention with the word "properly" is to convey how much is clearly left out of THEIR account on things. Jesus Christ of Nazareth was right and saw them for what they were, that is true. He saw a lot of things.

                The most rational answer is that a previous civilization built them using a technology tree we don't know and then global cataclysm occured and today we are the survivors of that event.

                >global cataclysm
                Which one are you blaming for the loss of this technology. And why use the world technology and not knowledge? What is your intention?

                Already had someone mention no trees grow in egypt that are naturally big enough for that. As I explained the trees were created by Apepi. This conversation is going in circles, ironic! CUZ SNAKES!

                Not currently but are we sure they didn't back then? And even if they didn't what stopped them from importing lumber from who knows how far? If someone has enough power to get people to do all this bullshit for a monument then buying some wood from faraway lands is hardly an issue.

                Fair enough, they found trees somewhere else, it wasn't Apepi. I'm fine with "humans did it". I disagree, mind you but why argue on that level?

                surprised there is no modern day tower of babel

                We hit the firmament, or rather the true nature of it with pic rel. It is already understood we cannot break past it so there is no point in trying. Originally the construction of the tower was halted when they realized they would need ravines to hold Heaven's oceans but at this stage it is clear that isn't an issue.

                The firmament is the barrier between our world and Heaven, it's what keeps Heaven's oceans in place, why the sky is blue etc. The Tower of Babel was constructed to reach up to it so people could begin tearing into it so we could just walk up to Heaven. The original Tower of Babel failed when construction stopped due to the fear of flooding the Earth a second time.
                Timeskip and when we started exploring "space" we eventually hit a bump and realized why there is no point in exploring any further.

                As it stands space and time are the same, to move requires some amount of time. It was realized that the firmament is the time it takes, it's literally the space/time between here and Heaven. It takes a lifetime to get through it. So the only way "into" Heaven is through death. This is why any serious attempts at constructing a tower to Heaven have been abandoned since the 1980's.

                But we are getting off topic. Apepi is responsible and there are not enough games with pyramids in them.

                > can't watch Prince of Egypt after finding out israelites weren't even slaves

                Slaves is a loose term. They were slaves to Apepi by that point and that is why that story even happens. So I wouldn't' feel bad, you aren't wrong.

                The trees that grew in ancient Egypt would have been crushed by having so much weight on them, modern tests have proved this.
                The speeds and feeds present in the cut stone tooling marks are too fast to be explained by idea of people using copper and sand as cutting mediums.
                The time line given by egyptologists is too short to quarry all the blocks, move them, and assemble the great pyramid given the tools they are credited in using.

                Egyptians had incredibly smart astronomers, as for the rocks, we know there's a lot of ways they could do it, but what we don't know is which method they used, simply because they thought it was common sense and never recorded it

                They never recorded it's construction or how it was made because they never made it.

                Some of the pyramids were built entirely by the Egyptians, but they were simply copying an existing structure (the great pyramid and it's sister pyramids), which were much more ancient.

                The casing stones are at most 1/3 - 1/2 the size of the blocks that make up the rest of the pyramid and less dense, so they are easier to move and work.

                The surface finish if the stone is ground down flat and the inscription itself practically scrawled in it by whomever scribed it with a tool that was not up to the task.
                The material itself is granite from the Aswan quarry, so it's very interesting how they got such a uniformly flat surface finish but poorly scribed hieroglyphs.
                Are the texts specifically attributed to the great pyramid or one of the shitty mud block/tiny stone block pyramids?

                This is patently false unless you choose to believe carbon-dating.
                It is impossible to accurately date the pyramids without actual historical texts to back up there age.

                Carbon-dating a a very shaky method of dating structures like the pyramids.
                Given how old they supposedly are and their location, dating them accurately within a good few thousand years is impossible.
                Giving them a date that matches with the historical records just makes more sense, but also has its issues due to there being no records of the complete construction of the 'Khufu' pyramid, only restoration works done during the time of the egyptians.

                what are they carbon dating when they test it?

                This is the major issue, carbod dating requires organic material, something which the sands of egypt are filled with, and given how many thousands of years the sands have been grazing against and eroding the structures it's safe to say none of the organic matter from the time of its actual construction remains.

                As far as I recall there is only one instance of a pyramid being able to be carbon dated, it was in a chamber underneath one of the pyramids that Petrie dug up and there was some wood down there and it set the stage for verifying most of the dates we use today.

                The area also had clear signs of sophisticated glass use btw, but Egyptologists won't mention that lmao.

                Remeses the 2nd doesn't even build any pyramids, by that time Pharaohs were building tombs int he valley of the kings instead of big expensive monuments that took ages to build.

      I think the mystique is more about why anyone would waste so much time, effort and resources for a tomb. Why were they so obsessed with afterlife?

      Both of you have failed to understand the most truly baffling aspects of the pyramids.
      Simply put, the math does not add up. The pyramids are too perfect for the time they were built and the available tools of the time supposedly used to build them.
      There are marks all over the ruins of ancient egypt showing that construction was done with more than just hammer and chisel.
      Also the idea that the Giza pyramid was the tomb of Khufu is still hotly debated, since the only evidence was a single image supposedly found on one wall inside the pyramid, hidden out of view, which is hotly debated to have been painted on the wall by the person who supposedly discovered it.
      The theory that the pyramids were a sort of ancient water pumping plant has been gaining more and more ground over the last 20 years.

          Explain to us how 15-300 ton blocks for the great pyramid were quarried, moved, and assembled in the 20-40 years that it is supposed to have be built in.
          Don't forget you need to source the blocks large blocks from Giza plateau and everything else from 90-200 miles away.
          All you have are copper tools, sand aggregate, wooden wedges, wooden logs and maybe some andesite chipping stones.
          Meanwhile when actual egyptologists tried to quarry one block that was 1/5 the size of the pyramid structural blocks they had no appreciable success at all until they used modern tools to drill pilot holes for wedges.

                Yes, according egyptologists they used sand as an aggregate for copper drilling and cutting tools and wooden wedges to break rock from the quarries.
                When egyptologists tried to replicate this using a block 1/5 the size of the smallest structural blocks present in the pyramid they made no progress with 10h work days and three months of time until they used modern tools to drill pilot holes for the wedges.
                They found that the idea of using copper tubes to drill them with sand took far too long for their study.
                Are you suggesting that the Egyptians made a bridge across the Nile, because there is literally zero evidence or text to support that anywhere.

                I'm just saying you think it's impossible to explain how the pyramids were built when there's various ways to explain almost any hiccup. Bridges, Boats, Going around the river, etc
                It's also thought they didn't just cut the stones, they also used filler and other techniques, which alleviates a lot of the issues of dragging around full stone bricks.
                "The stones forming the core of the pyramids were roughly cut, especially in the Great Pyramid. To fill the gaps, huge quantities of gypsum and rubble were needed.[5][6] The filling has almost no binding properties, but it was necessary to stabilize the construction. To make the gypsum mortar, it had to be dehydrated by heating which requires large quantities of wood. According to Egyptologists, the findings of both the 1984 and 1995 David H. Koch Pyramids Radiocarbon Projects[7][8] may suggest that Egypt had to strip its forest and scrap every bit of wood it had to build the pyramids of Giza and other even earlier 4th Dynasty pyramids."

                They didn't build bridges across the Nile for monument construction, there is no evidence they ever did nor texts.
                Their own accounts of moving blocks with boats are with blocks far smaller than anything used regularly in the great pyramid.
                Their own accounts of moving things with pulleys and man power are all things less than 10 tons.
                They only got the pulley and wheel after contact with the Greeks.
                I'm not saying that it's impossible to explain, I am saying that it's impossible to do in the time frame that egyptologists using the tools they say they had access to.
                Nor does that even begin to explain the speed and feed issues on some of the blocks they say they made or the precision of the saqqara vases.

                Which experiment was this that they tried to replicate the carving methods? Because in the ones that I've found they realized that the addition of water sped up the process incredibly. Leading to an estimation of 250 blocks a day being possible.

                The rocks for the chambers are made of granite from the Aswan quarry 90 miles away.

      Consider that when the pyramids were built, the wheel hadn't been invented yet.
      I hate the ancient ayy lmao shit because it takes away from the achievements of men. There's nothing impossible they're doing, just really impressive considering the time, resources, and engineering required to pull it off.
      But despite not having advanced equipment, they knew the night sky like the back of their hand, and aligning things isn't terribly incredible when you realize you've just got to get one corner stone down and measure a right angle for the next 3 corners. These things took forever to build, they have all the time in the world to make sure its right.
      They're ancient monuments that have seen most of history, and have attracted tons of speculation and crackpottery. A lot of the basis for egyptology was just rich english guys making shit up as they went along.
      Also, Egypt in the last several decades has really clamped down access to the historical sites, and make sure everyone went though zahi hawass (which is why he showed up on every fricking thing tangentially related to the pyramids), and because of that, a lot of people have been resentful, or full blown tinfoil.

        Teotihuacan was built by the Teotihuacano civilization, which as I said, was contemporary with the Roman Empire, we know quite a lot about them. The major thing that we don't know, which is likely the reason you believe "no one knows who built Teotihuacan", is which of the major Mesoamerican linguistic groups the language they spoke belonged to.

      Honestly its a pretty interesting thing to consider that until the spanish showed up, the new world had a better HDI than europe did.
      The diseases the spanish brought with them created an apocalypse through the new world where a small percentage survived. Populations were only starting to recover about the time the europeans started colonizing north america.
      There were civilizations in Florida that had an entire economy build around fishing, but they were spread all through the pan handle, some places really far from water. Instead they built a bunch of aqueducts of sort, and community ponds where salt water from the gulf could come in, and have stocked ponds of brackish water every place they wanted to built a town or a trading post.

The real good shit is temples/valley of the kings but the former is 90% eroded, destroyed or looted ruins where you'll get small glimpses of carvings, architecture or color at the edges of pillars and the latter is unbelievably hot even in the winter and is also a cramped tourist spot so you won't get much of a chance to appreciate it.

    Mesoamerican pyramids and egyptian pyramids are literally nothing alike beyond both being technically the same type of structure. Different purpose, different placement, different philosophy behind them, etc.
    And of course, there's the fact that Mesoamerican pyramids only began to be built a full thousand years after the egyptians stopped building theirs.

    The real redpill is that ancient people were not stupid, and were capable of building all sorts of great stuff. In many ways they were smarter and more adept than we are. Tough pill to swallow for the modern man, grown up believing himself the peak of civilization, watching mind numbing youtube slop stuffing macdonalds into his fat moronic face.

        Assume a magical population of people on some magical island.
        Half of them will ALWAYS live to be 100. Half of them will always die within a week of birth.
        What is the average age of that population? Does that mean if you survived in that population you would expect to die at 50?
        Assuming you weren't someone who died as a little kid, the lifespan you could expect wouldn't be much less than what you would expect now.
        Depending on where you are, you might have to worry about a war popping up, plague rolling through, or surprise snowBlack folk killing you off early, or certain illnesses that are easily treated with surgery and medication now, and you'd have to worry about dying of tetanus or a staph infection.

      Actually I'll dump some reconstructions of the pyramids in OP's pic

      Here's the Pyramid of the Magician at Uxmal. Not sure if the specific color scheme here is based on paint traces or it's speculation, but red is usually a pretty safe bet for Mesoamerican structures as a base color, and blue/teal/green accents are also pretty typical

      Weren't the Egyptian pyramids painted too?

      Not my area, but I don't think so? AFAIK they just had a limestone outer casing that was smooth and then like a metal tip

      I mean I wouldn't dismiss this so quickly
      I've seen people's driveways and sidewalks disappear under dirt and grass in a single generation

      who knows what could be hidden in plain sight

      The top image here is a slag heap near the French-Belgium border, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bruay-la-Buissi%C3%A8re_-_Terril_n%C2%B0_10,_3_de_Bruay_Ouest_(03).JPG

        It's believed they had a facade overtop of them, along with, of course the gold cap at the top. Though as far as I know that's yet to really gotten enough evidence for people to say it's the case.
        It's nice to imagine all of these old sculptures and buildings with their plaster and stucco and awash with color.

          Sun pyramid, though I don't really like this reconstruction because I think this particular paint scheme and lack of accenting is probably not correct.

          We know that the Talud-Tablreo panels/layers of the bottom jutting out section had sculptures of jaguars and human hearts and reliefs of fire motifs on it, like the Temple of the Feathered Serpent (which had feathered serpent, and either crocodile or war serpent or rain god sculptures, then reliefs of shells and other marine motifs, all over the pyramid), which isn't shown in this reconstruction, and I would hazard to guess that the "main" slanted layers also had some degree of more intricate accenting

          There's also an issue where the pyramid today was restored with an extra slanted layer/level, but I *think* that is corrected in this model? Where the second to top one is one single layer vs being split up/subdivided. That may not be the actual error though in which case this render would be even more incorrect then the structure today

            And here's reconstructions which show the Talud Tablero accenting I mention

        Not really, sacrifices were a thing, but it's not like people were constantly living in fear of being dragged off for it: Unless you were fighting in a war or being invaded, a slave (and even then, slaves had rights and couldn't just be randomly picked, at least in Aztec society) or were in other specific circumstances, it wasn't something you were that worried about.

        Even Cortes, Bernal Diaz, Aguilar, Tapia, etc as well as other Conquistadors and Spanish friars who were actually in Mesoamerica, consistently praise Mesoamerican cities, art, ethics and morals, social order and law, etc. They explictly compared them to Greeks and Romans as "civilized pagans"., Even sacrifices and ritual cannibalism and such, while they decried, they still situationally compared to to Christ's sacrifice, communion, etc (in fact many thought the Mesoamericans were actually lost Israelites, Mormons still buy into that)

        For example, here's Cortes describing Tlaxcala, a Nahua (so culturally "Aztec", though politically not a part of the Aztec Empire) city of ~36,000 people which was ruled via s senate (pic shows the senate meeting at their senatorial estate at the Tizatlan city quadrant; senators had to undergo public beatings and insult to prove their commitment to public service, then take years of legal and ethical training):

        >The city is indeed so great... the little that I shall recount is... incredible. It is much larger than Granada and... better fortified. Its houses are as fine and its inhabitants far more numerous .... Its provisions and food... likewise... There are gold, silver and precious stones, and israeliteellers' shops... as well arranged as in any market.. There is earthenware... as fine as any in Spain. Wood, charcoal, medicinal and sweet smelling herbs are sold... There are booths for washing your hair and barbers to shave you: there are also public baths... good order and an efficient police system are maintained...they behave as people of sense and reason

          The Greeks said the Egyptians said they used ramps and that the pharaoh was a dick but the Greeks figured the ramps would have had to be more impressive than the pyramids themselves and said it was nonsense. And there's no evidence of that and it still doesn't explain what we now know about the great pyramid which is that there are 50-70 ton gigantic stones in the upper middle. It's quite literally incomprehensible how they got them up there.

                These are modern humans, that is, same minds and bodies as you or I, they weren't just flailing around like moronic toddlers, they know what precision was and how to measure shit very accurately.

                Also, the stones aren't too heavy, it's been repeatedly shown that these large blocks can be moved with simple pully systems with ease.

    The Legend of Zelda series has a brief relationship with pyramids.
    You can see pyramids in A Link to the Past, Four Swords Adventures, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and A Link Between Worlds. Pyramid-like structures can also be seen in other games such as Majora's Mask, but are often less of a focus or more of a generic step pyramid shape to facilitate a tiered challenge.
    The most interesting pyramids were in Four Swords Adventures. They apparently housed the famous trident often wielded by Ganon.

          Egypt mobilized an enormous amount of people for this
          remember that in Egypt due to the way the nile flooding works for about 4 months per year people have to just sit around and wait for the water to recede
          during those 4 months, hundreds of thousands of workers can get a lot done

                people can work in parallel you know
                and again, what's your alternate theory, aliens built it and then left and never interfered again, also they fricked up the first few times in building the pyramids being apparently capable of traveling across thousands of lightyears but unable to understand you shouldn't build on sand or steep angles make it unstable?

                no they built 1 pyramid on sand, it, predictably, collapsed

                The Cholula pyramid is significantly larger then the Giza pyramid: It's much wider and longer, just not as tall. It's got more volume. The same might be true of Tonina and La Danta as well

                The Sun Pyramid, The Templo Mayor, all the Tikal pyramids there, etc aren't as big of Giza, but are significant portions of it in terms of size, like eighths, fifths, thirds, etc, which is what I said

                Dude, granite wasn't even in the giza area. The nearest quarry was in Aswan like 300 miles away. Yet granite was placed in the top of the Great Pyramid, perfectly cut and smooth, weighing a shit ton. Humans today would cry and moan if they had to do it without machinery, let alone everyone is wearing comfortable sneakers.

      Generally speaking because towers are more space efficient. The taller you want a pyramid, the wider its base has to be. It's a limiting factor.

        I'd say I pretty much liked all of the different ancient structures and artifacts equally. The Giza pyramids are really cool at night, it's a damn shame all of the facade has been lost of them (except the top on the middle one). I think they'd be even more impressive looking if they were intact. I think so much speculation goes towards the construction of their temples and pyramids that people don't realize how cool the hieroglyphs themselves are. They literally covered every inch of everything in hieroglyphs.
        I wouldn't say I hated anything really, maybe other than the dry air. The food was OK, but got kinda old after a while.
        The locals all seemed pretty genuinely nice in tourists areas, despite the obvious trying to sell/beg for money. But I didn't find it as annoying as people make it out to be. I felt like the people are kind of bewildered by Americans, but not necessarily disliking of them.

          Having tens of thousands of people at your disposal is superpower. A single factory in 3rd world country is much more complex than stacking rocks together. Autists really underestimate the power of organization with too much time.

      One ancient autistic guy had a fetish for blocks and no Minecraft so he devoted his entire life to this.

      Just like how little boys like to make the biggest holes on the sand men love to make the biggest building/the best in the area

      Those stones prolly had more fancier patterns in its stone handmade but erosion erased most them.

    All of those ancient megaliths were built by ancient Atlanteans who used telekinesis and technology powered by an energy source that is lost with time. It's obvious, and I thought everybody already knew this.
    You meant to tell me you morons didn't know this already?

      they actually got 500-1000 people to use rope and pulled them in a way we've forgotten. it's not that hard to believe.

    In the midday sun
    They beat on their drums
    When Poppa Joe comes to town
    With his coconut-rum
    They can all have fun
    They can drink it
    'Till the sun goes down

    Poppa Joe just smiles politely
    With the money he takes he might be
    Very rich one day as he hears them say

    Poppa rumbo rumbo
    Hey Poppa Joe coconut
    Poppa Joe, hey Poppa Joe
    Poppa rumbo rumbo
    Hey Poppa Joe coconut
    Poppa Joe, hey Poppa Joe
    Poppa rumbo rumbo
    Hey Poppa Joe coconut
    hey Poppa Joe, hey Poppa Joe
    Hey Pop-, Poppa, Poppa Joe

    Never see a sad face
    in the market place
    When Poppa Joe comes around
    For his coconut taste
    You can see them race
    Through the streets
    You can hear the sound

    All of the ladies are laughing gaily
    Poppa Joe's still thinking maybe
    He'll always hear the people say

    Poppa rumbo rumbo
    Hey Poppa Joe coconut
    Poppa Joe, hey Poppa Joe
    Poppa rumbo rumbo
    Hey Poppa Joe coconut
    Poppa Joe, hey Poppa Joe
    Poppa rumbo rumbo
    Hey Poppa Joe coconut
    Hey Poppa Joe, hey Poppa Joe
    Hey Pop-, Poppa, Poppa Joe
