The pyramid is highlighted in red, and its two diagonals are extended beyond the end of the pyramid to the north-east and north-west. The mass of squiggly lines above the pyramid is the Delta of the Nile River, and, as you can see the two diagonals encase the Nile neatly and entirely. IS THAT A COINCIDENCE???
Yes, I'm sure that the way the Egyptians did this was to have
someone walk hundreds of miles to the end of the delta and hold a really,
really long piece of string while someone walked all the way back to the
site of the pyramid. Then, those two people stood there while
two more people repeated the process on the other side of the Pyramid.
Just so that they could build a big building in such a way that its diagonals
lie on those two lines.
NOW THAT IS LIKELY????
Here is what really happened: A couple of aliens, flying high enough over the earth to be able to see where the Nile Delta's origin is, easily saw what orientation the pyramid would need to be in order to have its diagonals lie on those two lines.
This is how it really worked: Those aliens, abundant in their knowledge and drowning in technology, came along and using their compasses, they landed on earth and found the actual magnetic north and south poles. THEN THEY BUILT THE PYRAMIDS!
For the Egyptians to be able to do this, they must have known the day of the summer solstice, and they therefore, must have known the exact length of the year, or 365.25; once again, a fact not discovered until long after the Egyptians were gone. HOW LIKELY IS THAT???
The real story goes like this: Those meddling aliens, in
all of their infinite wisdom, saw the earth upon entering the solar system,
and by calculating the size of its revolutions around the sun, the
velocity it was at which it traveled and the angle of its axis of rotation,
they were able to easily calculate the longest day of the year or the length
of the year.
THEN BUILT THE PYRAMIDS!
Had the Egyptians done this, since this occurs only on the
day of the winter solstice, they would have had to have known the
exact length of a year.
IS THAT LIKELY???
It's those aliens, who after finding the length of the year, found the shortest day of the year, and then built their Sphinx and Pyramid accordingly.
Though this fact is not as remarkable, the positioning of the three
Pyramids of Giza are exactly aligned with the position of the three stars
in the belt of Orion, both in position and in size. While it is possible,
it would create many difficulties for the Egyptians in terms of measuring
huge distances. Not only this, but in fact, at the time
that the pyramids were supposedly built (about 3000 BC), the stars that
make up the Belt of Orion were not exactly at the correct angle to match
up with the pyramids. If the location of the stars is traced
back over thousands of years, the time at which the belt is exactly
aligned with the pyramids is in fact 10,500 BC. A time when there
were supposedly no
civilized humans living on the earth. Another fact to support this is, if you consider the Sphinx, a lion with a human head and then look at the size of the body, you can see that the body is perfectly proportioned for the head of a lion, not the human head. This human head looks tiny and silly sitting on top of the body. This is because the Sphinx was actually built in 10,500 BC, around the same time as the pyramids, with a real head of a lion. Evidence to support this is that there are signs of water erosion all over the Sphinx. The last time that there was any water nearby, aside from the Nile is around 10,000 BC. Also, the constellation of Leo the Lion (thus closely related to the Sphinx), was in fact rising directly behind the sun in 10,500 BC.
Are they saying that the Egyptians built their pyramids to be in the exact shape of Orion's Belt, but purposely aligned them differently from what was actually in the sky? That after they built the Sphinx, they purposely made the head look small and funny? Then, they broke their backs carrying water from the Nile just so that they could put water erosion lines all over the body?????
In fact, no Egyptian did it at all. The aliens, with their plethora of wisdom, came down in the year 10,500 BC and built the Pyramids and the Sphinx. They built it with a head of a lion to match the Belt of Orion, as well as the constellation of Leo. Thousands of years later, Ramses, the egomaniacal dictator-pharaoh of Egypt, decided that he didn't like having the head of a lion on top of the statue in his land. So, he had a head in his own likeness constructed instead. But the Egyptians, not being very skilled at huge masonry, built the head somewhat too small.
Why is it that the great Pyramids of Giza, built in 3,000, are perfect, and still standing as tall as the day they were built? (Aside from the capstone and the polished stones, which were stripped by humans in the building of Cairo) The other Pyramids, which were supposedly built about 500 years later, all have shoddy masonry, and are crumbling down. An example of this is the famous 'bent' pyramid, which started out with the sides being built at one angle, then suddenly shifts in the middle to a shallower angle. This is because the angle at which it was started was much too steep for it to stand when finished. It is because the Egyptian pharaohs saw the great pyramids standing on their land and decided that they wanted pyramids of their own. But they found that it was much harder to do than was expected and ended up building silly looking structures that don't even come close to comparing with the magnitude of elegance emanating from the great pyramids.
If you take the perimeter of the pyramid and divide it by two times the height, you get a number that is exactly equivalent to the number pi (3.14159...) up to the fifteenth digit. The chances of this phenomenon happening by sheer chance is remarkably small. Did the ancient Egyptians know what the number pi was? Not likely, seeing as it was a number not calculated accurately to the fourth digit until the 6th century, and the pyramids calculate it to the fifteenth.
