"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

The Mysterious Pyramids of Egypt

homanmihhomanmih Posts: 668 ✭✭✭✭
The Egypt’s main attractions are pyramids. There are more than 130 piramids. But the most famous are Piramids of Giza.
Due to their perfect geometry and sheer structural size many have argued that humans could not have built the pyramids.
Some have claimed angels, the devil, or even visitors from another planet variously constructed them.
What do you think, who and how had built that?
What made people wonder about the pyramids?

    Do you think that Egyptians discovered America before Columbus?

    @Bubbly @homanmih thank you for make this discussion about Egypt and I know you visit Egypt before you told me that.
    Tourists usually came to Egypt in the winter they came by plane to visit the pyramids and sphinx and visit a lot of temple in luxor and Aswan.
    The ancient Egypt so genius because the sun enter to the tomb once every year and pyramids like tombs to (pharon) mean kingdom to Egypt and the pyramids build by stone so heavy and almost scientists felt surprised how can the people in ancient Egypt rise stone for 148m ? But the scientists find secret the scientists in ancient Egypt delete gravity to the earth by directing a private acoustic vibration and electrostatic to spraying shipments to facilitate the lifting process finally I want to say pyramids like tombs to Kingdoms in ancient Egypt.

    Sphinx
    High 18m
    Tall 57m
    Old 5000year
    Mean the God to ancient Egypt and sphinx God of the sun in ancient Egypt mean power and wisdom

    Egypt full of pretty places I need more time to tall everyone here

    No doubt the ancient Egyptians were geniuses.
    For me the most important question is how could it birth intelligence of so high level in that conditions ?
    They discovered astronomy, geometry and architecture.
    Which university did they graduate?

    @homanmih I think that there is more wisdom involved in the old constructions like stonehenge, Mughal constructions etc. No idea but they thoroughly worked on every type of buildings.

    The stones at Stonehenge are similarly mysterious, proving our ancestors had insights into things we would never expect. Similarly there is no real evidence explaining the construction techniques used by the Stonehenge builders. There have been suggestion of supernatural or anachronistic methods, usually arguing the stones were impossible to move otherwise due to their massive size.
