These chronologies are hotly debated among Christians and secularists alike, with the consensus being increasingly challenged.Moreover, some of the incredible Egyptian monuments like the great pyramids on the Giza Plateau have dates ascribed to them that would have them being built before the earth-reshaping Flood of Noah’s time around 4,500 years ago.Other decidedly odd fringe arguments for the Great Pyramid include a colossal water pump and nuclear reactor.Fringe themes range far and wide, but in the end none of them stands up to scrutiny.History: Their historical analysis tells us that the Egyptians built the Giza Pyramids in a span of 85 years between 25 BC.The historical way of dating when the pyramids were built involves using written historical records and text to determine which King ruled Egypt during a certain time span.Tags Abydos, ancient Egypt, burial chamber, context, Dashur, Djoser, Dynasty 1, Dynasty 2, Dynasty 3, Dynasty 4, Dynasty 5, fringe, Giza, Great Pyramid, Khasekhemwy, Khufu, Meidum, necropolis, orthodox, Pyramid Texts, royal, Saqqara, sarcophagus, Sneferu, tomb, tomb robbing Probably no monument of ancient Egypt has been so intensively poked, prodded, explored, researched, and published as the Great Pyramid.Similarly, among fringe circles, no monument of ancient Egypt has suffered so many bizarre speculations as the Great Pyramid: from the landing site of alien spacecraft championed by Zecharia Sitchin (1980) to a giant psi-org energy plant posited by Moustafa Gadalla (2003).
Also, without some background or a framework to help the Christian gain some perspective on the issues, it is difficult to be discerning about any information that claims to solve the many mysteries that Egypt presents—and there are dozens of those from Christian researchers alone!
Is Gunung Padang in West Java a stunning mega-monument built millennia earlier than mainstream archaeologists would have you believe was possible?
Is it the smoking gun that at last proves the existence of lost Atlantis? Part 2 of this series examined one of the two chief lines of evidence used to support the Atlantean claims of the chief researcher, seismologist Danny Hilman Natawidjaja: the andesite columns which Natawidjaja believes could only have reached their present configuration by non-natural means.
I will discuss evidence relating only to the pyramid’s purpose as a royal burial.
To begin, we need to establish a couple of things: when the Great Pyramid was built and for whom it was built.
