Well there's also Luke Skywalker's landspeeder, a submarine and a fishy....

So what's the implication ? the Egyptians went to the movies a lot ? :confused:

Guess they must have seen Black Hawk Down, Star Wars, Das Boot and Jaws !

Looks like a rather poor hoax.

The subject matter, however, is a bit more interesting.

How is it that these people were able to lift 1000 ton blocks, which no crane in the world can lift today, and align them with such precision that a sheet of paper would not fit in between them?

Why is it that we still can't figure out how they built the great pyramids, AT LEAST 4000 years later? (at Ghiza, not the "mastabbas" elsewhere)

More importantly, why is it that "historians" and "archeologists" won't even begin to try to answer these questions? Something to be worried about, have they?

lowered gently into place using very large helicopters.
obviously the 'glyph' was a job card detailing the equipment to be used.

the connection between pilots and M*sons goes back further than we thought.

The Pyramids are amazing. I read somewhere once that it might be that the huge blocks of stone are not really hewn stone but actually a very decent concrete mix. The way that some of the stones internally join together with weird joints that seem pretty impossible to position is another engineering miracle. Just goes to show that thinking the current generation is clever than those that went before is not really borne out by the facts. We had a lecture about the surveying (setting out) of the pyramids prior to the construction started. The lecturer reckoned that the corners were set out by monitoring the pole star and where it set over many years (they probably made it a religious duty to ensure it was done every day). This enabled them to place it almost exactly aligned with the rotation of the earth.

Interesting stuff.
