The Concrete Theory
 

The Concrete theory states that the stones in the Great Pyramid are actually made from a very high quality of concrete (synthetic stone) and were poured into place using the chemistry of alchemy. It was calculated that it would take teams of 140 workers to raise an average block on a ramp with a 1:3 ratio, and that it would take 525000 workers to make 4 trips a day to sustain 14000 blocks per day. These numbers seem highly unrealistic. These “concrete” blocks are said to be 90-95% limestone rubble and 5-10% cement. Aluminum and silicon binder was also available in the Nile’s silt. Natron salt was abundant in the desert and salt lakes, and could have been mixed with lime and water to produce caustic soda which was essential for this method to work. The blocks would be poured against each other to create that solid fit in the pyramid.

To counter this theory, it is extremely difficult to determine pure limestone from synthetic limestone and there is no real determination as to whether the stones used in the Great Pyramid were in fact synthetic. Also, if each of the moulds were poured side by side, there would be no lines between the blocks. However in actuality, there are separations between the blocks. There have been fossils found within blocks of the pyramid which doesn’t make sense if concrete was poured into moulds. Animals would not have been able to die in the concrete without someone noticing. Supporting evidence to this theory also states that tool marks would have been discovered if the stones had in fact been carved from limestone. An explanation however is that the blocks are old and due to weathering and aging, the remaining tool marks would have eroded away.

The Alien Theory
 

Due to a number of coincidences, the Great Pyramid and all of the other pyramids must have been built by aliens. The Pyramids are said to bear a striking similarity to the Mayan temples. The only explanation for these two structures to exist in completely different places is an outside influence, such as aliens, who demanded the two different cultures to build the temples. The pyramids are also compared to the Nazca lines in Peru which can only been seen from the sky. Because of this, the pyramids and Nazca lines must have both been constructed with knowledge from the sky. They also found “Alien skulls” in the pyramids, which were actually wrapped human heads in the shape of aliens. The pyramids also contained underground passageways which could be explained as shelters from aliens.

To counter this evidence, the Mayan temples and the pyramids bear similarities because it is a natural shape for a structure that large to get smaller as it got taller. The “Alien skulls” were not formed to look like aliens, but this shape was seen as a sign of beauty and a cultural ritual. All of these arguments are indirect evidence. They are merely assumptions without any real proof.
