I know that most people will look at the title of this article and be utterly confused. What does Obama and the pyramids have to do with each other? Believe it or not, they have more in common than you know.
It all started today when I was watching a documentary about the pyramids of Egypt. I think that it is just so amazing to see the pyramids. I haven’t actually gone to Egypt and seen the pyramids with my own eyes, but from what I see on TV they are just amazing. The truth is that scholars are idiots. They can’t seem to agree on anything when it comes to the pyramids. All they do is argue about everything. I am being serious. There are a million documentaries about the pyramids of Egypt out there. You can literally watch one and they will claim that the pyramids were created as burial tombs, and then another documentary will claim that they are really big musical instruments. It goes on and on. The so-called smart people do nothing but argue about everything. I think that they just really like to hear their own voices and argue. Before we get to Obama, let me tell you a little bit about the pyramid of Giza. In order to understand it all, we have to put it into perspective.
The Great Pyramid consists of an estimated 2.3 million blocks which most believe to have been transported from nearby quarries. The Tura limestone used for the casing was quarried across the river. The largest granite stones in the pyramid, found in the “King’s” chamber, weigh 25 to 80 tonnes and were transported from Aswan, more than 800 km (500 mi) away. Traditionally, ancient Egyptians cut stone blocks by hammering into them some wooden wedges, which were then soaked with water. As the water was absorbed, the wedges expanded, causing the rock to crack. Once they were cut, they were carried by boat either up or down the Nile River to the pyramid. It is estimated that 5.5 million tonnes of limestone, 8,000 tonnes of granite (imported from Aswan), and 500,000 tonnes of mortar were used in the construction of the Great Pyramid.
That is just huge. That is insane how big the pyramids are. Did you catch that little fact that some of the stones weighed 25 to 80 tons and were transported more than 500 miles away? That is just incredible. The scholars can’t understand how the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids. We are told that modern man can’t even construct the pyramids. Apparently we don’t even have the technology to do it. Those ancient Egyptians who washed their clothes in a river, ate bugs, had no cranes or technology like we do today, could do it. So after…
