Yeah Im not sure I believe anyone about how old the pyramids are. They are rocks. Very hard to date

I may be wrong, but from what I understand, stone structures like the pyramids are dated based on other artifacts found around the site, as well as organic material, found between stones, which can be carbon-dated. They're also able to use apparent surface erosion. This is how people have been able to determine that the Sphinx is far older than the pyramids.

The erosion patterns in the sphinx indicate a completely different environment than what the Egyptians live in today. In fact, the erosion patterns are spot on for water erosion in a tropical climate, which would put the date of it's creation back centuries from the accepted date.

Carbon dating is like csi. Nothing in real life like it is on tv.

Carbon dating is not a reliable measure of age past 1000 or so years. Nobody fucking knows. We've found human remains that date back 200k years. Are you telling me that in the last thousand or so is the first time we've discovered technology? Seems improbable.

I agree. I think its far older than what is claimed. I also know that any of their explanations on how they were built is pure horseshit, at best.

Internal ramp theory is the best so far and entirely achievable with the technology available to them.

Best I've seen is that they floated the stones. Built a series of canals and the water bore most of the weight.

However old, someone definitely built them. Jewish slavery in building them is them taking credit!! Omg run away!

Like most other humans, Egyptians hated jews.
