Should the pyramids be torn down?

Some people say they were built by slaves.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

They weren’t. The pyramids where built by engineers , tradesmen and architects. The idea that all the workers were slaves is a historical inaccuracy.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

I said that some people say that. I don't really think we really know, but there are some lunatics who have actually suggested that.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

I know , it was a general statement for people reading. It’s common sense though. Don’t you think it makes way more sense that architects and engineers built some of the most impressive and complex structures we’ve seen in history?

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Obviously it was built by skilled architects and engineers. But how do we know that they were not slaves? And besides, you only need a small group of architects and engineers to direct the process. The vast bulk of the laborers, if not slaves, were obviously menial laborers.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

When people say they pyramids were built by slaves, they obviously mean the manual laborers who put it together, not the engineers who designed it (though like MMC2 said, the engineers could have been slaves too). Considering the Egyptians had slaves it's not a big leap. Someone had to move the rock.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Yes, and it wasn't the architects…..

Yes, and it certainly wasn't the architects and engineers who moved the rock.



Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't! 😸

Yes, and it wasn't the architects…..

That’s ridiculous considering archeologists have proven the workers were honored with tombs upon their deaths. You think the ancient Egyptians were honoring slaves with tombs?


You believe that because you learn history from American films.

I seriously doubt….

I seriously doubt that they gave tombs to hundreds of thousands of workers. That just doesn't make sense.



Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't! 😸

I seriously doubt….

I’m thinking that although they were not all slaves it does not mean slaves were not used. Perhaps the slaves just got easy jobs like sweeping up afterwards.

I seriously doubt….

I think the most logical conclusion is that both slave and non slave labor was used. The Egyptians had slaves, why would they not use them? And I doubt they got the easy jobs. My opinion is that they received the hardest jobs, like pushing those heavy stones up the ramps.



Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't! 😸

I seriously doubt….

Do you know anything about pyramids or Egyptian society and beliefs? They believed the tombs were to ensure the protection of deceased Kings in the afterlife. It is NOT a common sense opinion that the construction of these tombs would be entrusted to any slaves.


So no, that opinion is not the β€œ most” logical one by any stretch of the imagination if you ever studied Egyptian society and how they honor deceased royalty.

I seriously doubt….

I repeat, the most logical scenario is that they used both slave and non slave labor. The slaves would be used for the menial tasks like dragging the stones up the ramps. Don't need to be a genius to do that.

We know they had slaves, so why would they not use them in such a massive project? That makes absolutely no sense at all.

I literally just explained why, you have a severe reading comprehension problem.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

They weren’t slaves. Just like modern construction workers aren’t slaves. The slave story is common historical inaccuracy that people continue to repeat that isn’t true.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Wonderful. The pyramids can stay.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Yeah well architects and engineers built those monuments that the protestors are tearing down. If we wanna bring the Bible into this, then doesn't the Bible say an eye for an eye? See how all of this stuff I getting carried away? When AJ kept harassing me, I wanted to get BLM. Now today I see you being a hypocrite and now I wanna let you know that you shouldn't be treating architects as racists because those pyramids that you worship were designed by racists as well.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

I’m surprised they have WiFi access in that white padded room you live in.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

That's exactly my sentiments as I watched who I consider, lunatics, tear down monuments all over the US because they thought it represented racist architecture.

Therefore, I think pyramids should be torn down as well because the architects that designed pyramids and the labor used to built those pyramids represents a system of OPPRESSION.

Do you know what OPPRESSION means in the context of racism, racial inequality and slavery,Erica?

Why do we need pyramids anyway? It's taking up space.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

That’s like saying Christopher Wren built Saint Paul’s Cathedral.

Okay, so the ancient Egyptians treated people better than Europeans.

I have to correct the America part. It was built on the backs of slaves and immigrants.

I read they were built by them poor arab slaves from the middle east.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

That is a possibility.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

I wanted to find a picture from that silly film where they used mammoths to build the pyramids and came across this…

Believe it or not, there were still Woolly Mammoths alive and walking the earth when the Egyptians built the pyramids. We don’t mean one of those β€œthe pyramids are way older than you think” things either. A small colony of mammoths survived on Wrangle Island, a small island way up in the arctic. There were as many as 1,000 mammoths living on the island up until around 1650 BC. This is nearly 1,000 years after the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Quite the contrary. They ought to be restored. Fully restored. It would be an awesome sight to behold. Gleaming a brilliant white and tipped with gold under the searing Egyptian sun. Air tight coverings for the paintings so that people may once again tour the structure.

Also it is time to open the upper chamber of the Great pyramid and view the untouched wonders no doubt stored inside.

Conman is a goon ass, twink basturd. Fuck his swine of a mother.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

An interesting idea.



Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't! 😸

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Agreed. They would be a splendor to behold.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

No. Better yet, every European country with Egyptian artifacts should return them back to Egypt.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

And there’s the ongoing issue of one European country returning artifacts to another European country.

Has no one considered turning them into a casino complex, in order to provide some needed class?

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Apparently this has been a hot topic here in the UK following the lynching of a slave trader’s statue.

British anti-racism protestors called for the destruction of Egypt’s Giza Pyramids on Sunday, after tearing down a statue of a slave trader in the city of Bristol and throwing it in the Avon river, CNN reported Monday.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Thanks. I knew somebody was demanding that. Idiots!

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

It seems like that is all a hoax perpetrated by anti-protesters.

I’ve been Fake Newsed.

Re: Should the pyramids be torn down?

Or maybe it's a hoax perpetrated by the protesters.
