I to agree with the Egyptians building the pyramids. The aliens thing is a little out there. I mean if there is other life out there, do you really think they would mess with the "Alabama of the Universe" by giving us the pyramids?

I think aliens exist. Whether they are uber-intelligent, space-travelling greent humanoids or bacteria, they exist. I don't think they built the pyramids.

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that I loved the 'article' that Shallandra posted: Aliens Built the Pyramids


Some key points that I loved were the lack of proper grammar, the switching of tenses, and the use of the 'caps lock' button.

Capitals are such a professional way to make your point and stress importance, aren't they?

A new hypothesis has been put forward by a French person suggesting that the pyramids had been built from the inside out. It is early and still a hypothesis but I guess it has some credibility and is currently being looked into.

One thing that I never really understood with just about every Alien conspiracy is WHY exactly they did it. They are able to travel millions of Lightyears using technology most likely beyond our comprehension and the first thing they do when they get to earth, build a large stone structure.

To clarify I do beleive in other intelligent life in the universe, just the odds of them coming to Earth to probe farmer Billy's ass I find unlikely.

I also hate how conspiracy theorist use math and most likely random occurences to prove that aliens did it. I once dropped a stick and it pointed in the direction of my grandmother's house. It their fore must have been planned by an alien. Needless to say if it pointed in the other direction it would have been my neighbor's house, the other way my school and so forth.

I've been thinking about posting in this thread for a while, but I can't seem to find the best angle to approach the subject. As Garnet suggested earlier, I'm not necessarily saying Aliens built the pyramids, but I think there is more to them than meets the eye.

Maybe the egyptians built them under the advisement from aliens?

He could have a point. What if a passing expedition of aliens supervised men to build the pyramids as a sort of experiment or physical and mental test? For whatever reasons we failed to interest these aliens enough for them to stick around, so they simply moved on. The universe is a big old place and I'm sure there are many other interesting planets and species for them explore and examine. And what if we did pass their test? Maybe we did? Maybe they took some humans away to breed and use for whatever means interested them...

Hell, maybe I've done too many RP's and my imagination is running wild. Who can say?

ha. But it's fun as hell to speculate isn't it?

IF aliens built the pyramids themselves then they sure as hell could have built a dedication Alien statue to commemorate their work.

Unless, if after they left for home our ancestorial human pranksters destroyed all evidence of alien presense to boast it as their own accomplishments.

"We don't know X, therefore god/aliens did it."

See the reasoning?
I am pretty damn sure that humans, and nothing but humans made the pyramids. Just because we don't know the details of how doesn't mean we should leap to conclusions about gods/aliens without better proof.

Um, you mean like wanting real proof of alien involvement before I assume they did it?

Just pointing out skeptism is healthy, but sometimes faith has to step in....

Not saying you're wrong about this case of course. Hell, we pretty much know how they did it now...

I haven't noticed anyone in this thread claim that aliens did build the Pyramids, but until it is proven 100% that it was done by man and only by man, some of us prefer to keep an open mind.
