Great pyramid as a big ram pump

This is for the more engineering inclined.
What a concept!

And all this time we just thought they were just tombs.

:D



So....how come the second and third pyramids have no such internal passageways?
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

And why does the great pyramid have no evidence of ever being filled with water?

I have a really unique theory.

What if the pyramids will built as monuments or perhaps tombs for a couple of egotistical kings?

we could not possibly build such a supremely awe-inspiring structure.
Cobblers!
If the 'entrance' was that far above the base and is currently so far above the 'flood' level the Nile water could not have been used. If it used the water from the lake via a viaduct at that height who the hell would need a pump in the first place?
Where are all the delivery pipes?
Why is there only one pump for 8 million people?
The country is, and was, long and narrow so lots of smaller ones would have made more sense.
Eygptians using cement?
That drain pit would have to have been able to lose a hell of a lot of water and would in fact appear to be below the water table, hardly an efficient way to dispose of a lot of water. Why not connect it to the river?
How far above the entrance was that lake? Anyone know?

What 'lake'?
There's 200 miles of desert to the north-west of Gizah. There's 2,000 miles of desert to the west. And there's 2,000 miles of desert to the south-west.
What 'lake'?
