How Were The Pyramids Built?

Written by; Gary Wonning

Many have tried to explain how the pyramids were built. Using pulleys, ramps, and thousands of workman to construct them is the most accepted theory. Yet, not much of it makes sense. Built on the highest ground for miles, it’s hard to visualize how ramps could have worked. Also, there would still be evidence of the ramps.

Egypt has an extremely arid climate, structures and the evidence of structures would last for thousands of years. The tremendous manpower needed to built the edifices would have been staggering. How do you move a stone, some of which weigh 40 tons and are as large as a train locomotive up a ramp three hundred feet high?


The most logical explanation about how they were built, when they were built, and by whom is probably the most illogical. Many legends persist they were constructed by either extraterrestrials or refugees from Atlantis, who reputedly escaped to Egypt when their land sank beneath the sea some 12,000 years ago. Either could be true.

Evidence suggests that planet earth has been visited many times by life forms from beyond our galaxy and there is also evidence of a land existing in the Atlantic prior to our present era.
As for now, no one knows where the pyramids came from, why they were built, or what information they hold that may be of use to mankind in the future, one can only speculate. Only time will tell.
