No, I'm not Jewish. I just think its silly that we keep up with this antiquated notion that the Egyptions built the pyramids themselves. They designed them, certainly, but history has proven that great things can be done if you have a large supply of cheap labour.

ok i agree, the pyramids couldn't have been built without the large number of "people of jewish descent"(so i don't have to mention the word slaves)to drag the stones, but let's take the petronas towers in malaysia for example, the malaysian goverment had to hire workers from different countries(bangladesh,india,pakistan,etc)to do the work for them, but can we say that these are who built the petronas towers???? no the enginners and the designers are the ones who did it.

Ok, so the towers were still built by manual labour, not by psionics/electromagnetics.

I still think they were built by aliens, but than again I'm weird so don't pay no attention to me concerning aliens.

Winged_Wolf is on a distinguished road
The pyramids were built through lots of hard work and time, great big piles of dirt, and ropes. It wasn't nearly as difficult as it looks, just laborious.

Actually, the three great pyramids where quit a bit harder to make then thy look. This ones where made on a architectural scale still above the norm for what we do today. So even the mass labor aside thy would be marvels even created today with are tools.
