    Those slaves surely had great skills.

    Does anybody ever read complete sentences anymore?
    Does the term "on the backs of slaves" have no secondary message buried within it?

    Did you know that the first recorded labor strike was during the building of a pyramid?
    And that the reason was "garlic rations".

    p.s. The primitive "trundle wheel" is still used today to measure exact distances.

    Water in a square tub is still used to measure horizontal.
    It has now been replaced by the enclosed "airbubble" in spirit level.

    Most tools we have today are merely refinements on some very fundamental principles.

    Tools that accomplish the task they were made for are NOT primitive

    as re pyramids
    wild guess
    they used oxen to pull the stones.

    It is a matter of degree. There is never only this or only that . I am sure both slaves and seasonal unemployed workers were used as they are today for major infrastructure projects.

    Judging by recent history, slaves make for cheap labor of physically demanding jobs. All great labour intensive infrastructures in the US were made on the backs of slaves.
    Were Egyptians then more civilized than modern man was a few decades ago and still today in the great modern works in the Middle East.

    Skilled labour is expensive. Paying high wages for 30 years to tens of thousands of physical laborers to build a single pyramid would not be very cost effective. In that respect, nothing has changed much in a few millenia.

    Isn't it interesting that Egypt is not mentioned in this list?

    Stop hijacking threads.
    Why can't you start your own thread instead of hijacking others?

    There it is . Close the thread. It got 1 like. Hooray! Standing ovation!

    Is that what you can offer to the OP question? Give me a break .

    Citing slavery as having been a big part of these enormous works is perfectly appropriate.

    Three important documents in chronological order are, firstly, circa 2700 BC Pharaoh Sneferu's "Palermo Stone" where we read forty ship loads of timber, imported from Lebanon, for temple building. Translate "temple" to "Pyramid" and the timber was required for the construction process.

    Secondly, circa 590 BC priest and scribe Ezekiel records statements made by the ancestors of Hebrew Pyramid builders who speak of wooden" wheels within wheels" machines having four rims that were high and awesome, with eyes all around.

    Thirdly, circa 450 BC Herodotus walks around The Great Pyramid and inquires as to how it was built. Priests informed Herodotus that machines formed of short wooden planks were used to raise Pyramid blocks tier by tier.

    The simple step-walking machines are now understood as "four-lobe pinion-pulleys" and operated innately with a mechanical advantage of 2.8 (MA=2.8) which means a 2500kg Pyramid block requires an input effort of 900kg to raise it. The machines operated independently on all four sides of the Pyramid, progressively using the Pyramid to build the Pyramid to final completion. White Tura limestone facing blocks were hoisted and installed from top to bottom. These three documents exist and provide congruency of evidence of the ancient Egyptian four-lobe pinion-pulleys which are the earliest known prototype of "rack and pinion" mechanical engineering technology.

    This makes sense to me. It also explains the presence of the "Petrie rockers". I assume you have compared the size of the rockers to the size of the stones.
  14. Paul Hai Registered Member

    gmilam, all "Petrie rockers" found are small flimsy tomb models for use in the "after-life", or have been hidden in safe places. Real "rockers" surround their load, so deduction is necessary, and logically straight forward to determine "rocker" length. The majority of Giza Pyramid blocks are limestone cubes of approximately one metre side length, thus real "rockers" would need to be one metre long, and of course extremely robust.
