Humans are humans at every part of our history and more or less capable of just about the same kinds of abilities and ways of thinking.

Yeah, I think we’re very quick to believe esoteric answers but less likely to believe things like “good engineering techniques”. I think in today’s time we readily believe that people in the past were automatically dumb and we’re automatically smarter… but are we? Humans are humans at every part of our history and more or less capable of just about the same kinds of abilities and ways of thinking. Same hardware and software as it were.

I’m glad you like it Photini smile emoticon I was determined “once and for all” last year to figure out what was the most reasonable answer to it, because I grew up hearing about “ancient aliens” on TV at home (In Search Of…, and stuff like that) and then at school it was “millions of slaves” – and THAT seemed strange to me.

But when I came across this and the evidence he presented for his view, it just, I dunno, it made good sense. It’s reasonable, doesn’t require millions of slaves, although a few thousand people over a 20 year period isn’t an unreasonable amount of time for a construction project, even today. [just look at how many people it took to build the sky scrapers in New York back in the 10s/20s, and those were quick building projects with the help of machinery]

A 20 degree slope isn’t insurmountable with block and tackle and pulley systems.

That’s not to say it was *easy* but the Egyptian engineers HAD to be as smart as engineers today. Smart people existed then just as they do now. smile emoticon

 

Oh it’s fun. Once you get the hang of it, it’s placing blocks. Infinite Legos. You can set any goals you like or just walk around a virtual world just to see what’s over the next mountain.
