The pyramids are cement? (in Off-topic)
And it took this long to notice? Na must be a joke site!.......
No, he's not joking. He's saying that they're made of limestone concrete made through advanced technical manipulation of raw limestone and other materials, which would be much more efficient than the traditional story of 'lots of manpower'. Very interesting, considering that another paper was recently published which seems to confirm his theory!
What gets me is taking this long to notice . That "chariot of the gods" guy said the easter island totems were probably cement and he made a good argument for it ,no one thought to check the pyramids back then?

Why would earlier civilisations not have access to things like concrete?
They are infidels!!!!
Lol, probably actually made of titanium alloys and carbon fiber. But what do I know?
After having watched a few of those shows about the Aztecs, I wouldn't be surprised if we found an ancient B2 Bomber buried underneath some of these massive monuments. BTW: Yes I realize Egypt and Aztecs are vastly different.
One of the scary things to think about: Ancient civilizations that were capable of making some rather miraculous structures have a lot of things in common with modern day civilization. They simply didn't have as much time as we did to develop technology. Just think if the Aztecs or Mayans had been left alone to build and discover new technology. We could be living on the moon or have spaceships by now.

Nah, all of them have the same capability that we don't nowaday: unlimited human resources... aka SLAVES!
Wow, this is not the place to have serious discussions!
We have wage slaves, machines and you are pretty well locked into the place you're born.Unless you want to go into months or years of red tape .The ancients wish they had our labour force.
