For decades, an odd theory has been revolving around the Great Pyramids of Giza- could it have been built by advanced alien visitors? Conspiracy theorists have claimed that the construction of the ancient wonders was far beyond the means of the early Egyptians.
Just outside Cairo, Giza, Egypt’s most famous pyramids rise from the desert. Built more than 4,500 years ago, the Pyramids at Giza are massive tombs where ancient queens and pharaohs were buried.
Archaeologists have long been puzzled about how ancient Egyptians managed to achieve the near-perfect alignment as each of the great pyramids is constructed with 2.3 million stones, weighing up to 200 tons each and covering 13 acres. There are no detailed records of their construction and the sophisticated methods involved in their design appear to be centuries ahead of time. Even with today’s cranes and other construction equipment, building a pyramid as big as that of Pharaoh Khufu, which looms over the city below it at a height 455ft, would be a formidable challenge.
Over the years, many archaeologists have tried to decode the mysteries of the ancient Pharaohs’ burial places but are yet to even scratch the surface of the pyramids’ history. The pyramids’ enigmatic past has invited countless conspiracy theories and the most prominent conspiracy theory of them all states that the Pyramids were built with the help of extraterrestrial technology.
Researchers believe aliens left vital clues in the design of the pyramids which prove it could not have been our ancestors who built the extraordinary feats of engineering.
Want proof? Well, the experts claim the truth lies behind one important aspect – the co-ordinates.
The speed of light is 299,792,458 meters per second and the geographic coordinates for the Great Pyramid are 29.9792458°N, as reported by Dailystar.co.uk.
And then there’s the astronomical configuration of the pyramids, which is said to align with the stars in Orion’s belt. Additionally, alien theorists often point to the fact that these three pyramids are in a way better shape than others built centuries later.
Another shocking fact is that two imaginary diagonal lines extend from the pyramids on either side of the Nile River delta, the early Egyptians could not have known this when building them, to be so accurate with their positioning.
With their precise measurements and alignments with celestial bodies and magnetic north. It has widely been argued that our ancestors around 4,600 years ago would have been unable to physically build the ancient Pyramids of Giza. How could they have possibly built their pyramid facing the exact magnetic North Pole without even having a compass?
Theories of this kind say that because the civilization that invented the calendar and was based on farming couldn’t possibly understand the stars, seasons, the days of the year, and the rotation of the earth must have gotten their technology from aliens.
The theories go on to suggests that these visitors were mistaken for gods by our ancestors who depicted images of them in ancient artwork, which are now said to show pictures of aliens and flying saucers.
All these being said, there is abundant evidence that humans have built the pyramids. Some experts say that the idea of intelligent extraterrestrial helping shape ancient civilizations here on Earth is the single most outrageous thought and that these ideas are not supported by scientific evidence, but they’ve become so prevalent that many people believe there must be something to them.
