Only a fool believes that aliens built the pyramids. They were obviously built by the Illuminati. Why else do you think they're in the shape of a triangle?
"Yes, I can." "Well, then do it. Prove aliens didn't build the pyramids." "I already did. Prove I didn't."
Each block in the pyramid of khufu is 2.5 tons, and there’s like 1 million of them. The egyptians didn’t have pulleys, carts or work animals. In order to build said pyramid out of FUCKING BRICK THAT WEIGHS MORE THAN A CAR in 23 years, they would have to place a brick every 2.5 minutes
As long as you don't believe slaves built it. It's a fun conspiracy theory that aliens built it. It's even funnier some of the nuts who take it way too seriously.
The burden of proof is on him to prove they did, not you to prove they didn't. Just like with religion - eg Christians have to prove God exists, it's not atheists' job to prove he doesn't.
I knew there would be some jackass comparing religion to believing aliens built pyramids and such. It's not even remotely similar. Religion is a moral code and philosophy and, often, an explanation for all of existence, from the tangible to the intangible, often including an explanation for why we humans even have moral codes and philosophies. Pyramids are a single tangible phenomenon with a thousand more plausible explanations than aliens.
#67, my comment simply pointed out where in OP's conversation the burden of proof lies. The argument regarding religion is (in my experience) the most well-known example for this. Sure, I could've used another made-up example (like the teapot in space) that probably wouldn't have caused you and others to take offense. Regardless of who takes offense because of my example the point still stands that it's not OP's responsibility to prove aliens didn't build the pyramids, it's their colleagues responsibility to prove they did.
The funny thing that nobody can explain is how could the pyramids have been so precisely built (it's been centuries and they're still fine) with things like having a window pointing towards the moon on specific dates, knowing that the wheel hasn't still been discovered at the time. Also, many ancient civilisations that couldn't communicate around the world (Mayans, Egyptians...) did the pyramids approximately at the same time, and with that same procedure we still can't understand and reproduce today. And they all represented those "gods descending from the sky" the same way.
As an architecture student, we've actually studied and looked at many of the possible theories. the most probable one being that they transported the building materials and huge stones by sledges that they rolled over a belt of sorts. they would then proceed to work from the inside of the pyramid. as they work higher up in the construction, they simultaneously built a spiral ramp on which they pull the construction material over. When the pyramid is finally built, the spiral ramp is deconstructed from the inside of the pyramid. Some evidence has been found on this not too long ago by the archeologist Jean-Pierre Houdin.
