Is it possible that the limestone blocks in the Giza Pyramids were cast (in some kind of mold)?

    so do we definitively know how the fuck they built this chonk? my liberal theatre major friend insists it's common knowledge how its built and is nothing more than western (read:white) supremecism which makes us disbelieve a colored race could have built such a marvel.

            590,712 blocks

            20 years (generally excepted figure) = 10 512 000 minutes
            20 years / 3 (8 hour work day) = 3 504 000 (minutes)

            3 504 000 / 590,712 = 5.9318 minutes per block

            Also your ancient aliens didn't build so good. Why?
            Because with all their advanced tech they still messed up their first pyramid.
            See the second most ancient: The Bent Pyramid of Sneferu
            It collapsed in on itself and the architect had to lower the angle.
            The angle is 54 then 43 degrees.

            Everything you think you know is WRONG.

                So therefore it takes longer per block.
                It strengthens the argument.

                White Tura-limestone, of the best quality, was then used to cover the pyramid core made of less valued Giza-limestone. This external layer was later stolen to use in other buildings. The granite used in the great pyramid was transported over 500 miles to the construction site

                Reminder you can transport both ways using the Nile:
                Inland using the wind.
                To the coast using the flow of the Nile.

                Yeah they used them for the foundation, but not the higher up blocks. That's completely implausible and we know they wrote the recipe for the cement down.

                One could barely transport a 3 tonne block down the nile when they tried, for a 22 tonne block, no way

                The smoking gun is the paleomagnetic investigation of Khufu and Kafre. If the blocks were chiselled, they would maintain their magnetic alignment from the quarry, and one would find blocks polarization in many different directions.

                If they were set as concrete, however, they would take the magnetic alignment from the earths magnetosphere, facing all the same direction

                The found the latter

                How about this?
                What if they used both methods?
                Transportation and conventional construction and then also pouring of concrete.
                Depending on the requirement and level of pristine-ness, symbolic significance and so on.
                Also depending on the Dynasty.
                As you are probably aware, Pyramid construction is one thing, but the temple complexes surrounding it were done at different times in history, rebuilt and so on.

                Evidence is overwhelming that they did. Certain legacy egyptologists stick to the quarry only theory and block progress.

    Back in the 80s there was a theory that they were made that way. There was even "evidence" of air bubbles in the stones. I don't know if that theory was ever disproven or maybe was never serious outside of popsci circles. I was also taught back then that the Pyramids were build by gnomish slaves, which we now know is complete nonsense.

    A sintered-quartz ceramic material from ancient egypt. Which was built from crusshed quartz or sand.

      Needs more cranes. I don't know why archeologists deny the Egyptians such simple technology. Making wheelbarrows and such is something most agricultural societies figure out how to do so just to make agriculture more efficient. They probably had copper ball bearings too to assist with moving heavy blocks. Also IRL, the real limestone casing stones are several times larger than people.

        A video on the linked page shows them use what appear to be essentially hydraulics to lift the stones up into place.

          You've probably discovered nothing and I certainly have uncovered nothing. Maybe only a few people have actually discovered or uncovered anything.

          Maybe no one discovered it because the Egyptians melt down their metal tools when the become old to reduce the need to buy more raw minerals and simple burn old organic tools when it becomes to old and loses its integrity because a rotting piece of wood or rope is still useful for heating an oven. What you see in the remains of old civilizations is usually a fraction of what once remained as good materials where always looted and reformed or used by their successors. That happened universally. What remains is either things that were deemed useless or unable to be retrieved and that didn't rot away.

          Whether or not something exists does not require discovering something. Rather something like the pyramids, all the ornate statues, finely constructed pillars, etc. are evidence of a sophisticate technological culture that had things would have been considered essential for similar projects by future generations (i.e. cranes, pulleys, ball bearings, etc.) and the existence of such completed projects serves as evidence for those technologies.

      You can compare this to how well defined the joints in the pyramid stones are against how poorly defined the joints of the blocks in this experiment.

          That's' what's been sitting beneath the pyramids until something like the 18th or 19th century when a large earthquake loosened the casing stones enough that they could be quarried. What you're seeing there is what was never supposed to be seen. Just sandstone. Those blocks were quarried.
