  1. I've been to Giza four times and inside the Greqt Pyramid. It is nice and cool inside there. There is speculation now that they were not burial sites, but something more complex like a large speaker system. There's something underneath them, but the Egyptian government won't let archeologists dig down.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that the correct pronunciation of the word jashur, is ya-sur. The letter j was used for the y sound because there was no letter y for several centuries.

  3. its actually infuriating that youtube channels will just make any old video mentioning the great pyramids and just copy and paste old narratives about them being burial locations when they're not, so silly. Only favor views popularity, facts are not overally important lol

  4. I've never understood why admitting we don't know an answer seems impossible for academia but giving an incorrect answer is no problem at all. There is not now nor has there ever been any evidence that would suggest the pyramids were tombs. We know plenty about Egyptian tombs making it even more mind boggling that it was ever even suggested that was the purpose of the pyramids.

  5. I have been to Teotihuacan in Mexico when I was in High School and have been to the top of the Pyramid of the Moon and Pyramid of the Sun as well as on the Avenue of the Dead. It was very cool to see, as it is amazing to me what they were able to accomplish with out any modern tools. I would love to see the Pyramids in Egypt, but I don't have any desire to fly over the ocean, so I don't think I ever will.

  6. The pyramid is the sign of life. Anyone entombed in the exact centre of a pyramid could possibly come back to life.
    Here's how. There could be ripple in space-time. For a brief second or two birds fly backwards. In fact time takes a step backwards. Whoever is buried in the exact centre of a pyramid should come back to life – and live forever. This is why we have movies showing mummies returning from the dead.
    Today, you can't get planning permission to build your own pyramid. So stop being so silly reading my bullshit and nonsense. (U.K.)

  7. I think you missed out on pyramids of Libya, Mexico, Belize, etc. I visited the pyramids of Central America and Libya decades before Egypt and South America. We also have several American pyramids and of course the pyramid at the Louvre. I was sad and a bit angry when I found out there were 34 buildings that no one even entered at one site in Mexico due to lack of funding. My teenage self imagined me becoming Indiana Jones and just entering any site I wanted and being the 1st human in them since they were built. Sadly, my parents insisted I become a comedian rather than an archaeologist or doctor.

  8. I went to Egypt in 2007. I am legally blind, so I got to touch a lot more things than the average person does. What I thought was amazing was the fact that we were standing there looking at something that Jesus himself could have seen. Also, we were standing there looking at the pyramids when someone’s cell phone went off. That was just weird.

  9. Yes, I have been lucky enough to see the pyramids in person. They are breathtakingly beautiful.
    I also was able to go to the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and tour the tombs.

  10. They also invented an electrical device called "cylinders of the pharaoh" made from copper and zinc tubes filled with quartz when held produce up to 1.5 volts of electricity! You can make them yourself or buy them on Amazon.

  11. Ironic in a way that there are pyramid shapes all over the world, but obviously because of their size and history, the Egyptian ones are the most known about. To answer that last question: I was lucky enough to go to Chichen Itza my one trip to the Yucatan Peninsula seeing that awesome pyramid. There is also the remainder of a native civilization not too far from where I live where… you guessed it… there are pyramids, including the massive Monks Mound. From what I remember, a lot of the smaller mounds did have some bodies found in them, while Monks was obviously the center and not used for burial.
    Cahokia Mounds is just east of St. Louis named after the Cahokians who lived there well after original civilization disappeared.
