Bring up the Great Pyramid and you are sure to trigger all kinds of reactions. No manmade object on the planet has precipitated more theories and more debates. The fact is that this pyramid, as a global cultural icon, has come to represent the essence of ancient mysteries.
When we normally think of this pyramid we consider its massive size and its fascinating shape and we wonder and puzzle over it. We seldom if ever take the things that are missing from the structure into consideration. However, they have an equally intriguing and strange story to tell.

The two most obvious features that are absent are
1) the capstone and 2) the outer layer of casing stones. Where did they go? Did it even have a capstone? No one can answer the latter question. However, we do know it did have an outer casing of precision cut, carefully beveled, limestone blocks because some remain on the lowest tier on the northeast corner.
But there are also many items that are missing from the interior, if this was indeed a pharaoh’s mausoleum, a theory for which there is no supporting evidence. We do not see any hieroglyphs, nor any mural art on the walls, and when it was opened n the 8th century no funerary items were found; nor was any treasure uncovered and last but not least, NO MUMMY was discovered in the alleged coffer.
All of these standard items were always found in all of the traditional Egyptian tombs in the King’s Valley. The fact that none were found in this, or any of the other massive pyramids, puts the tomb thesis on very shaky ground. We know what the traditional pharaoh’s tombs looked like and what they had inside of them and that was established long ago.
Next, there were obviously fixtures of some sort in the Grand Gallery as 27 pairs of slots were cut into both sides of the ramps. Those slots must have been put there to hold some kind of structures that were inserted into them. However, we do not know the exact configuration as those too were never seen.
Then we find that portions of the antechamber are gone as well it parts of what remain are damaged. If the pyramid did function as some sort of machine then it would appear that many of its working components were removed and/or suffered damage.
We are led to that conclusion by another set of curious features. Whoever built and used the structure took great and elaborate pains to hermetically seal it. There was only one passageway that led up into the heart of the complex and that was blocked by immense stones that were carefully set into place.
Finally, the outer casing formed a nearly seamless shell that completely concealed the door on the north face. When it was finally broken into the job was done by boring through the casing stones using vinegar, fire and tools to chip away the softened stone. When the intruders managed to break through they were lucky enough to have accidentally chosen the right block because they found themselves very near the passageway.
But why would our mysterious builders feel compelled to remove and/or damage these components and then seal the structure against future intrusion?
Before trying to answer that crucial question we need to examine several observations first brought to light by engineer Christopher Dunn, author of the Giza Power Plant. While investigating the Grand Gallery and the King’s Chamber he noticed that the walls were discolored even blackened. Moreover, he also noted that one of the massive, granite blocks that formed the ceiling of the chamber had a large crack in it.
During his investigations in the 19th century Petrie had observed that the walls of the chamber were slightly bowed out. Dunn was aware of this and he deduced that the only thing that could produce these kinds of effects was some kind of explosion. Historians argue for an earthquake; but that thesis does not hold up since there is no visible damage to the lower levels of the pyramid including the Descending Passage.
He envisions that his theoretical power plant had suffered through an uncontrolled disaster, which caused this damage. However, what if this explosion was actually a controlled, partial demolition conducted to permanently disable the plant? This scenario would more fit into the puzzle of the missing pieces of evidence noted above.
If the Great Pyramid was an advanced machine, whether a power plant or something else, we can envision an advanced, technological civilization crippling the device. They could have had numerous reasons for doing this, including not wanting it to fall into the wrong hands, which might have resulted in back engineering. Of course any speculation on that falls into the category of pure conjecture.
Nonetheless, given the above evidence it does appear that the Great Pyramid was stripped of its main working components, damaged and then hermetically sealed to prevent re-entry.
Now, we noted above that the tomb theory stands on very shaky, if not completely falsified, ground for a number of reasons. We can add to those by including the fact that it lacks any attestations as to who built it on the outside or in the interior.
In addition, there are no references about how it was built or attributions to who built the Great Pyramid in any Papyrus document; nor is it visible in any piece of Egyptian art which copiously documented the life and times of the known ancient, Nile culture. It is as if the ancient Egyptians did not really include these pyramids as belonging to them.
The volume of evidence against the tomb thesis is so large it amounts to an indictment. Now, we have to seriously consider whether or not the Egyptians actually constructed it. We have much compelling evidence that argues against that proposition and commonly held belief.
First, historians claim that the pyramid was constructed 4500 years ago. At that time the Egyptians lacked the wheel. When we examine the tools that Egyptologists claim they had at that time we only find stone (rounded hammer-stones) and soft copper implements. We are actually talking about a late Stone Age culture in terms of their tool box.
But when we inspect the Great Pyramid we find many examples of advanced architectural design and precision engineering and unexcelled stonemasonry. This is still the largest, heaviest stone structure in the world. When Petrie examined the structure he noted with a great deal of amazement that the pyramid represented, ‘‘the finest opticians work on a scale of acres.”
What he was really alluding to, in so many words, was that the field of optics held the highest level of precision machining achieved in the 19th century. But it was on a very small-scale and industrial engineers and builders could not achieve such precision on a large scale.
There are yet greater problems with trying to ascribe the Great Pyramid to the Egyptians. No one can deny that the structure exhibits advanced architectural design, engineering and master stonemasonry skills and knowledge.
The next logical question is where then is the evidence that the Egyptians had evolved these skills over time in a rational, incremental manner?
We should see small, crude stone pyramids all over the landscape as proof that they developed the masterful skills needed to construct this massive edifice. Yet we find nothing of the sort. Okay, then it could be argued that they developed these skills building their cities, smaller stone temples, residences, governmental buildings and so forth over many generations.
One problem, there are no ancient, sophisticated Egyptian cities as there were in Sumer and the Indus valley. If the author could get Egyptologists into a court of law it would be easy to demolish their entire theoretical framework. In fact it is no more than fanciful stories, opinions and unsupported assertions.
It is very easy to trace the evolution of technology from the Early Stone age to Egypt and then from Rome to the present (but Egypt represents a discontinuity). We can see the stone hammer, chisel and their modern steel counterparts. We can trace the development of the skyscraper, which did not occur until the 20th century; it took thousands of years to build the infrastructure, tools and trades that went into these things.
But we do not find any evidence of this kind of obvious logical progression leading up to the pyramids in Egypt. The tools are not equal to the artifacts they are alleged to have built. How could the Egyptians achieve what we lately achieved after 4500 years of continuous development? The whole scenario is irrational.
Perhaps, the oddest thing — in our industrialized, high tech, modern civilization — is that even educated people seem to accept the threadbare fantasies that historians promote about the Egyptians building the Great Pyramid.
There are as yet even more reasons to take away the attribution of having built the pyramid from the Egyptians. It has long been known that the pyramid was aligned to true north, and thus the cardinal points, with great accuracy. However, there is no evidence that the Egyptians had any knowledge to accomplish this feat, and the compass had not even been invented in 2500 BC.
The pyramid’s precise alignment has long been known and it has also defied explanation.
What is little known is the fact that a major international forensic engineering firm was hired to conduct an investigation of the famous structure in the late 1990s. One of things they found was that the 13 acre base was leveled to an accuracy achieved today with lasers. In fact one of the engineers wrote about this about the study,
“”The logistics involved in the construction of this pyramid are staggering when one considers that the ancient Egyptians had no pulleys, no wheels, and no iron tools. Large blocks of limestone and granite—some weighing as much as 20 tons (18 Mg)—had to be cut at quarries and transported by boat across or down the Nile River. All of the interior rock was carved on the Giza plateau, but the limestone used on the exterior facing of the pyramid came from Tura, which was situated across the Nile. Blocks of limestone weighing anywhere from 2.5 to 6 tons (2.3 to 5.4 Mg) made up the bulk of the structure. Estimates indicate that more than 2 million such blocks were used. Most of these were cut from a quarry at Giza; heavier blocks of granite from Aswan were used to construct the King’s Chamber.” (Aswan is 500 miles from Giza)
…The final dimensions of these stones were extremely accurate on the exterior faces of the pyramid: the joints were made within fractions of an inch…”
Between the lines we can feel this professional engineer’s high level of astonishment at the seemingly impossible achievements. He was obviously wondering just how this was accomplished with the most primitive of tools and methods. But he stopped short of voicing his skepticism. After all he was hired by Egyptologists and they were looking for him to confirm their pet theories not shoot holes in them.
It is abundantly clear that some technically advanced culture built the Great Pyramid. We have one more item to consider that bolsters the case. Several years ago the author made an unexpected discovery. From out of the blue one evening, came the idea to shift the prime meridian, now in Greenwich, to the Great Pyramid-Nile delta longitude, now 31 degrees east.
When he did this it was with quite a bit of amazement that he discovered that making the GP the 0 prime immediately showed the following: the Mississippi River delta was exactly 120 degrees west; the Yangtze River delta, 90 degrees east; and the Hawksbury River delta 120 degrees east. That would indicate that the Great Pyramid is the natural, logical choice for the prime meridian and not Greenwich.
Clearly, the ancient Egyptians had no idea of the earth’s continents and where they were in relation to the rest of the planet. The Egyptians did not build the pyramids. As to who did my book series, The Genesis Race’ presents the case for an extraterrestrial race who have been involved with humanity from the beginning and today visit in UFOs…
