Facts about The Great Pyramids of Giza

*Compared to the Great Pyramid, the Chicago Twin Towers are 4 ' 10" high without the space between floors.

*All the masonry to build a highway from San Fransisco to New York 8' wide and 6" thick - fits inside the Great Pyramid.

*Only a few places on earth could hold the weight of the Great Pyramid.

*The height of the Great Pyramid is equal to the average height of land on earth.

*The Great Pyramid sits in the center of the longest land parallel and meridian, equally dividing all four quadrants of earth's land masses long before Columbus.

*The Great Pyramid was covered with mirror smooth casing stones, 20 tons each, with a smoothness "equal or better to that of your reading glasses."

*There were 144,000 of them.

*It is the only structure that can be seen from space.

*The space between the stones is smaller than a human hair, or piece of tin foil, exact to the thousandth of an inch. Today's technology can move stones 10 to 20 tons each to within 1 or 2 inches of each other.

*The most accurate macro manipulator (precision movement of large objects) from NASA can move items only 1 and a half tons to within 50,000th of an inch, not 1 or 2 thousands as in the pyramid.

*In aiming toward True North, the Pyramid is off by 3 minutes of arc. The best modern science can achieve is 6 minutes off.

*Since the Pyramid was built, there has been a movement of the North Pole. At the time of its erection the Great Pyramid was only .001 off True North.

*The greatest scientist of all time, Sir Isaac Newton, broke the code of the Great Pyramid by discovering what he called "the Sacred Jewish Inch."

*After studying the Great Pyramid, Newton dedicated the rest of his life to Bible study.

*The periphery of the Great Pyramid is 36,524 inches. Moving the decimal reveals the exact length of the earth year.

*The Pyramid is the most heavily measured structure on earth, to within a thousandth of an inch through lasers, etc.

*Measuring up the ascending passage to the year 33 a.d. one finds the start of the Grand Gallery, and the exact date of April 3, 33 a.d. Here is found "the Christ Triangle," incorporating the angle of the passages we find September 29, 2 b.c. as the birth of Christ. The third leg of the triangle points to the date Octover 14, 29 a.d. - the baptism.

*The Pyramid points out 1914 - the start of World War I.

*The three granite plugs of the Pyramid are made from the same mount that the 10 commandments were carved in, being a unique red granite, (though not absolutely provable, tests well against minerals.)

1. Re: Facts about The Great Pyramids of Giza

I think more than one of these could be argued as wrong. Even the most scientific of studies have, as far as I know, only produced estimates of weight, no. of stones etc.

See here for just one example http://www.khufu.dk/article/blocks.htm

it gives the length of a side as 9068.818" (x 4=36275.272)

Close, but not quite

This site touregypt.net/featurestories/greatpyramid1.h… has the side slightly longer at 9070.078 (x 4 = 36280.312)
