Reply To: Lecture3 Egypt – Pyramids


I just became a subscriber yesterday and I am so impressed with the content of the materials. I decided to start with the Western Civilization to 1500 class. I am intrigued by this conversation about the ancient pyramids and how they were made. It looks like I am a couple years late joining the conversation but I have a hypothesis on how the ancient Egyptians might have moved these large stones around. First off let me start by saying that I am a Christian and I believe the Bible to be inherent. I believe in a literal seven day creation and that the world is about 6,000 years old. If this is true, it is also possible that the Egyptians could have used dinosaurs in the building of the ancient pyramids. This idea seems far fetched in the eyes of main stream science, but I don’t believe this idea is any more absurd than some other theories about how the pyramids came to be. If dinosaurs lived with man, which I believe they did, then it is very possible there were still some in existence when the Egyptians built their pyramids. I’m not saying this is how it happened but it is interesting food for thought. Thanks
