I seriously doubt there were aliens but have no reason to exclude it as a possibility. Of course we lack the knowledge to skip about the cosmos but this might not apply in 100 years or to species on other planets. I don't know.
Otherwise I couldn't be in more agreement. Superstition destroys and NEVER creates or can create. Superstition destroys lives individually and collectively. Some superstitions are relatively benign and some rise to the level of extinction events. But no superstition created the pyramids or the culture and the Egyptological belief that they did is obscene in Biblical proportions.
Egyptologists see no modern technology and no modern experimental science and pronounce the Egyptians incapable of modern knowledge, understanding and science. Since Egyptologists don't understand how modern science and math work it would never occur to them there might be another kind of science founded on logic and observation and formatted in the language and the wiring of the brain. In their defense our modern languages make seeing this very difficult and they lead us to beliefs that aren't real. For instance, we believe that intelligence is what sets humans apart because this is what we each experience as we think in modern language. It is not intelligence but rather it is complex language and this language changed. The very nature of language changed because ancient science became overly complex. Now we can't even read simple English from ancient ideas that say "the dead king is the pyramid". We see "the pyramid is his tomb" no matter how many times it appears in the writing or in how many ways.
I can't believe Egyptology is just sitting back waiting for me to prove from this computer that there was a water source as I undermine their nonsense one tenet at a time.
