I already know, and it ain't a pile of stones that have no real meaning to those of us that don't care about some Pharoah slave drivers that lived centuries ago.

Next you'll say the Romans had some influence on present culture.........

Slaves didn't build the pyramids so your opinion just dropped even lower.

As for the Romans, dear god I can't even fathom that you can be more than 13 and make that statement.

O.K. genius,,,,prove to us that slaves didn't build the pyramids...........while you're at it give us some proof that modern Americans give a shiz about ancient Rome.......


well since well over half of the English lexicon comes from Latin, I'd say that is a start. Then there are those guys in DC called "Senators", who came up with that name and idea? I'd also bet that more than a few Americans somehow use concrete. Indoor plumbing is another nifty Roman invention.

This is (from the Latin est) stupid (stupidus) , I could easily (eise) fill several (severalis) thousand pages (page) with significant (significanis) influences (influens) Rome has on modern (modernus) American society (societus).


Seems some of you are lost in the history books...............That's o.k...............just let us in reality know in advance, so we can isolate the likes of you...............you're not alone............and we'll provide for you as we have in the past!

Something Churchill said about failing to learn from history springs to mind.

Immediately, the economists comparing the fall of Rome to current happening in the US makes Rome just a tad bit relevent...

We will not fall.........regardless of history.   We will fight and destroy, and prevail....................when we leave this planet, we will take the American way.........into oblivion if necessary..

We are Americans..........noboby else matters!!!

Unfortunately, there's a decent chance the pyramids outlast us.

Every see the show "Life without People" on Discovery?

One of the more interesting points was that if all humans vanished, the very final surviving man-made objects would be the Pyramids. Almost everything in North America or Europe would last less than a couple hundred years, while the Pyramids would last several thousand more (mostly because of the very arid conditions)

Well there are more than one American, who live in the modern age, who seem to be interested in Rome. Ends that part of your question.

As for not ebing slaves who built the pyramids:

Another interesting part of the puzzle is the Sphinx. Most believe it was built around the same time of the Pyramids during the reign of Khufu and Khafra around 2500 B.C. But there is a lot of debate about this. Some scientists claim that it predates Khufu.

Some claim there is even evidence of water erosion which does not exist on the other surrounding structures. It would suggest the Sphinx is much, MUCH older than the pyramids. Many geologists have studied the erosion and have concluded that there does appear to be a lot of erosion that could only be caused by significant rainfall. Now the problem with this is that Egypt only gets about 1 inch of rain a year. And there is nothing in written history that suggest that was any different during the time of ancient Egypt. It has always been a very arid climate. For the Sphinx to have this type of erosion, it would have had to be built around 5,000 or 6,000 BC.

Now this is not really accepted by many in the mainstream. They sort of just shrug it off because they just consider it impossible. The pyramids themselves were a fantastic engineering feat for the Egyptians to complete. To think the Sphinx may have been built 4,000+ years earlier is just preposterous and insane in their minds.

There are several theories out there about this. But it is obvious we don't have all the answers to this.

One theory is that some ancient pre-Egyptian group carved something from an existing rock outcropping and that thousands of year later the Egyptians recarved the head. There is also a theory that Khufu and the others chose that site because the Sphinx was already there (makes sense since it was a really long walk (12 miles) from Memphis, the old kingdom capitol.)

Cyber, I'm pretty sure Robert Schoch is only geologist that has presented the rainfall/erosion theory (along with seismic studies of the area around the Sphinx) to push back the age of the Sphinx. Let me know if you find another one.

If Schoch turns out to be right, how bad does that make the other geologists and Egyptologists look that they didn't even consider that? Ego is a big reason why Schoch's work have been attacked. Schoch is an outsider. The insiders don't like when somebody like him comes up with answers that they didn't provide.
Maybe Schoch is wrong but I don't think so.

Maybe the folks at Nabta Playa are the ones who built the Sphinx?

Oh, BTW, Schoch has also written a recent book on the paranormal. Other folks will use that to discredit him. He's a rogue and doesn't give a crap what others say about him. Gotta love that.

No, you're the messiah, we might need you........but only if you give up that stupid pyramid crap.


Back to John Galt's post........200yrs. after humans are gone.....and the only thing left standing are some pyramids.

And if some alien force stumbles on to what's left of this planet........all they find is some stones stacked in the shape of a pyramid........That's some legacy eh?

Let's blow all the ancient landmarks to hell before we leave..........and somehow leave some evidence of life as it was before we blasted out to our new home.
