Ancient Egypt was flat
You have a horrible understanding "on" the English language. Tell me about these sea peoples you are apparently an expert "on".
Studied a whole degree on them. They didn’t destroy the ancient Egyptians. The sea people hypothethis is not as popular anymore.
Also you are likely getting your old and new kingdoms confused. The old kingdom that built the Giza complex fell apart due to civil war and famine.
Great boardgame as well.
It annoys me that they dont just drill through all the passages and get into the center to find "the cube" from Transformers or some shit. Who gives a shit if its ruined a little bit, it has already taken a beating.
The circles in the picture aren't symetrical... Not to be cynical, Egypt is as mysterious as they come. How can the purpose of the pyramids not be known?
The only real reason we know as much as we do is because of how bone dry Egypt is. Without the dessicated environment there would be far less left to draw conclusions on.
The Nile River was an excellent place to set up shop for ancient people but it was also surrounded by desert which makes it pretty unique condition wise.
I’m outraged that they never abolished slavery; ancient Egyptians are lesser people than the hwite man
I think that its disgusting the Egyptians forced thousands of jews to build pyramids dedicated to a God King . They enslaved a entire group of people for a useless tomb.

I think they had brilliant people who made the most with what they had. It's a well known fact that several complicated fields of mathematics came from the region. Suffice to say, they were more than capable of designing simple structures with symmetry with lots of time and manpower.
If you think they had alien help, you're living in a fantasy world.
Man this has got to be about the most biggest fuck up in history. Love Alexander he is a god bit for fuck sake why the fuck would you let that fucken place be put in a spot to be ransacked and burned!? The world lost a lot of history in the fire. Who knows what was all there throughout his campaigns of Egypt and Asia.
I think your timeline is a little off.
Ancient people weren't stupider than us. They all have just as much cognitive and problem solving abilities as you or I.
The neolithic age lasted around 7000-8000 years. People were building out of nothing but stone for an incredible length of time, it's really not surprising they got really really good at it.
Modern academics like to sometimes proclaim ancient feats "impossible", but they've spent a few decades studying, and maybe a few weekends practicing with clueless volunteers. Their knowledge doesn't really compare to thousands of years of human innovation.
Was ripe for a civilization after the ice age. They depended on the nile, which gave them the civilization. Even today making fun of the nile is forbidden.
They started religion because they could settle. Jews 1000 years after the pyramids were built also started a religion during Babylonian captivity. Settling helps the perpetuation of myths and culture. Jews did NOT build the pyramids, they came 1000 years later in the historical timeline. Aliens did NOT build the pyramids. These silly myths need to go.
Ancient Egypt is shit comparing to Greeks and Romans, they were conquered tremendously easy.
they were fucking smart and very skilled for what they did.
