I'm quite familiar with how the pyramids were build. I am probobly the GD forums expert on things archeological. I espicilly like how the work crews named themselves. "the Drunkards of Menkaure" for example appears on graffiti hidden on blocks. There are all kinds of things people spewing conspiracy like to omit.

like say this:

You may notice that is the quarry for the stone of the pyramids. You will also notice you can see a pyramid from it. You may also notice the super obvious signs of hand quarrying.

It's like they mined the materials from right next to the pyramids or something.

There is the massive settlement of workers right next to the pyramids as well.

With big bakeries to feed all the workers as well.

As far as assertions of alignment crap go that people throw out.

Kind of hard to build them anywhere else.



For people to even suggest that the pyramids were not built by humans is the height of idiocy and ignorance. You literally need to ignore all contradictory evidence and basic sense.

They also need to ignore the evidence that the early Egyptians didn't just come up with pyramids overnight. A pyramid is just a stepped pyramid with the gaps filled in, and a stepped pyramid is only smaller slabs built on top of larger slabs.

There are also the clear mistakes that were made along the way. Sneferu was the first to make a true pyramid after the stepped pyramids, and it took him three attempts to make the design work, the broken one at Meidum, the bent one at Dahshur, then the much less ambitious Red Pyramid, which was the first "proper" pyramid.

There were even construction errors made on the Great Pyramid of Giza.

I remember hearing there were some rocks they mined at some point that they had to like pick up eroded chunks to quarry or something, something about diamond tipped drills or some such

That sounds bunk. For harder rock like granite they used copper saws with sand to cut them.

Now that the thread has slowed down, have a conspiracy theory I came up with while watching UFO "documentaries":

What if all the UFO stuff from Roswell on began as deliberate attempts to hide US experimental aircraft (including Project Mogul) and US observations of Russian aircraft from the public that then morphed into a deliberate attempt to falsify and hide secret, captivating, and ultimately harmless information that could not possibly originate anywhere else? That way, whenever it showed up out in the wild or in other countries' hands, it could be more confidently traced back to its source and serve as a way to find and exclude people unsuited to handle classified information. Suppose it then metastasized into a whole host of secret projects whose whole point was to be conspicuously secret, partly justify the defense budget, and let people feel special for knowing super-classified information that not even [insert important official here] knows?

There need be no extraterrestrials or physics-defying super technologies, just a lot of paranoid people deeply enjoying the ego trip they get from having a need-to-know secret the other guy doesn't need to know. While collectively an operation of significant size, it would inherently be compartmentalized to test compartmentalization (and because secrets are more impressive when fewer people know them), and of course no whistle-blower would have any concrete proof that the alleged proof did not exist.

So there you go: it's not that there are extraterrstrials and the government is lying to us, it's that there are no extraterrestrials and the government is confusedly, officially-unofficially, and pompously lying to itself for kicks.

This ties into South Park's theory regarding 9/11 conspiracy theories: that the government didn't do it, but wants people to think they did, because it makes them look powerful.

Makes more sense than hyperadvanced intelligent life traveling thousands of light years to rape people and murder cows.

To be fair, presumably in such a scenario they didn't COME to do that, they just kinda ended up doing thing, like how armies for most of earth's history ended up doing that with defeated foes, except they haven't killed us yet

Maybe aliens are wading through an intergalactic ocean of red tape bureaucratic claims before they can invade legally.

I dunno. In a space society where ftl drives were owned by private individuals I could definitely see some ayy lmaos treating Earth like the cross between a formicarium and a brothel

You can come up with endless possible reasons for things but without any evidence, and more importantly a falsifiable hypotheses, they are totally worthless. You might as well say the flying spaghetti monster an not aliens and it's no more false.
