Do you know why air plane pilots are warned not to
fly over Egypt's Great Pyramid? That's right, the
Civil Airline Department has banned all planes from
flying over the pyramids. As you read on, see if you
can discover why.
AMAZING PYRAMID WONDERS
The largest structure at Giza, in Egypt, is the
• The Cheops pyramid is 476 feet high, with
a base 764 feet, and covers thirteen acres
(an area almost equal to seven city blocks).
The polished limestone facings (now removed)
covered 22 acres.
• It is still larger than any modern building.
New York’s Empire State Building is among the
very highest erected by modern man, yet it is
only about 2/5 the volume of the Cheops pyramid.
• The building comprises 2,300,000 blocks,
totalling 6,250,000 tons in weight (each stone
is 2-1/2 tons). This amounts to more stone than
has been used in all of England’s churches,
cathedrals and chapels built since the time of
• Covering the "King’s Chamber" are granite slabs
of 60 to 70 tons each, brought from a quarry 600
• The casing stones (which are still in place on
the north face near the base) each weigh 15 tons.
ACCURACY OF CONSTRUCTION
• The pyramid is perfectly square to within
• Although it is constructed of 2,300,000 great
blocks put together without any cement, you still
can’t get the thinnest blade of a knife between
The joints of the original limestone casings are
barely perceptible, not wider than the thickness of
One of today’s biggest U.S. contractors has stated
that we do not possess any machine capable of making
equally smooth surfaces as those connecting the
stones of the pyramids. They were fitted to an
accuracy of 1/100 inch.
• The pyramid is level over an area of 13 acres to
within half an inch.
• It is the world’s most accurately aligned building,
• Originally this pyramid had a beautiful covering of
glistening white marble (polished to a mirror like
finish) and could he seen for 50 miles, reflecting
the light. It was capped by a golden point that shot
shafts of light back at the sun.
MEASUREMENTS IN ITS DESIGN
• The pyramid incorporates higher mathematics in its
very design, and advanced scientific knowledge in
its measurements. The relationship of the pyramid’s
height to the perimeter of its base is the same as
that between the radius and circumference of a circle.
It thus incorporates the mathematical value known as
pi (the constant by which the diameter of a circle
may be multiplied to calculate its circumference)—
and it does so accurately to several decimal places.
Its main chamber made use of several Pythagorean
functions not "discovered" supposedly until thousands
of years later.
• It served also as a calendar by which the length of
the year can be measured to the exact minute. And it
was as an observatory from which maps of the stellar
hemisphere could be accurately drawn.
• It is so finely aligned to the North Pole that modern
compasses can be adjusted to it.
• The measurements of its sides and angles accurately
reflect the geographic measurements of the northern
hemisphere, such as the degree of latitude and
longitude, the circumference and radius of the earth—
even accounting for polar flattening.
All this data was not ‘discovered’ until the 17th
• In the International Geophysical Year in 1958, the
exact dimensions of the earth were determined by
satellite, and the French meter—which is our own
standard system of measurement, supposedly based on
the dimensions of the earth—was found to be incorrect.
But more amazingly, the Egyptian cubit—the unit of
measurement used in the pyramid—was found to be exact.
In other words, the cubit fits into the dimensions of
the earth within five decimal places—a rather startling
• Cosmic radiation inside the pyramid contradicts every
known law of science and electronics—it implies an
advanced knowledge of electromagnetic forces.
• An energy field radiates from the apex, which prompts
us to wonder why it was built. The mass of evidence
suggests that the major pyramids were not intended to
SPEED OF CONSTRUCTION
• The pyramid was erected at an incredible speed. Recent
evidence suggests that this enormous structure may have
been built in a fraction of the time generally assumed.
It may have been built in 4 years by just 4,000 workers,
laboring only 3 months a year! This is a technological
feat beyond comparison in the modern world.
The supposition that enormous manpower, inclined planes
and rollers were used, must be discarded. To handle or
move one of the blocks might require a thousand hands
(500 men), for whom there would not have been room around
(Assuming the use of primitive methods, the block must
still be handled, even if only to pass ropes under it,
or to load it onto a barge.)
Furthermore, engineers have estimated that a ramp to
service the Cheops pyramid would finally have had to be
a mile long, with a volume of masonry four times greater
than the pyramid itself. No, that’s not how they built it.
• In a search for hidden powers and riches, Melik al Aziz,
in 1196, employed thousands of workers to pull down the
three Giza pyramids stone by stone.
They went at the smallest pyramid for 8 exhausting months,
after which he gave the order to suspend all work when he
saw that the building had scarcely been touched.
• The pyramids are as strong today as when they were built.
Scientists have conceded that modern man cannot build a
great pyramid that would retain its shape for thousands
of years without sagging under its own weight.
