The Great Pyramid of Giza is a unique, fascinating, incredibly complex ancient structure. Even thousands of years after it was erected, we still do not have the entire picture as to how ancient people managed to build something so massive and so precise.
In fact, the Great Pyramid of Giza is estimated to have around 2,300,000 STONE BLOCKS that range in weigh from 2 to up to 30 tons each. Some of the blocks are estimated to have around 50 tons.
Just imagine how it was like to quarry, transport, and place into position such blocks without the use of technology like the wheel.
Mainstream scholars suggest the builders fo the great Pyramid managed to erect this fascinating ancient wonder using only stone and copper tools.
The Great Pyramid of Giza was a marvel of ancient engineering and it is demonstrated that the base of the Great Pyramid of Giza covers 55,000 m2 (592,000 ft. 2) With each side greater than 20,000 m2 (218,000 ft2) in area.
However, the Great Pyramid isn’t only an architectural and engineering mystery. It is a geographical one too. According to researchers, the Great Pyramid is the most accurately aligned structure in existence and faces true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error. The position of the North Pole moves over time, and the pyramid was exactly aligned at one time. But the most fascinating discovery was perhaps made in 1877.
Author and theologian Dr. Joseph Seiss demonstrated in 1877 that the Great Pyramid of Giza is located at the exact intersection of the LONGEST LINE OF LATITUDE and the LONGEST LINE OF LONGITUDE— in other words, at the exact center of ALL THE LANDMASS on planet Earth.
Dr. Seiss outlined: “It has been ascertained and clearly demonstrated that there is in the measures, pointings, form, and features of that great primeval monument . . . a massive and indestructible stone memorial of a complete and faultless knowledge of the structure of the universe, of the exact and physical sciences both terrestrial and cosmical, a determination of a perfect system of weights and measures scientifically conformed to what the Opifex Mundi (Creator of the World) fixed in things when he fetched a compass round the worlds and weighed the hills in balances. Scientific investigation on the part of different men competent to the task have made it clear that there is built into that edifice a record of the heavens at the time of its erection which gives its age by astronomy in full accord with all external indications and evidences; also a record of the size, form and weight of the earth and its relation to and distance from the sun, the true length of the solar year, the number of years in the precessional cycle, the average temperature of the habitable world, together with the multitudinous cosmical facts and mathematical formulas and proportions no better told by sciences now existing among men” (Joseph Seiss, Gospel in the Stars, p. 175).
