Who built the Pyramids?

Increasingly, there is widespread recognition that nobody knows. The people who live there now are like pigeons that nest under your rainwater gutters. They're just there. The people who actually built them are long gone and they may have done it over 30,000 years ago, not in the past five millennia.

Why do we cover information like this on Vault-Co? Simple.

As we've told you a hundred times, this isn't the first atomic war approaching and it won't be the last. I have a sneaking suspicion that nuclear wars are an extremely common event on this planet and that there have been so many of them you could not number them on your fingers and toes.

EDIT : To reply to a question in a comment posted here, why dwell on this stuff when this blog is about surviving such events? That's easy. The proposition is that these kinds of events are always survivable, have been survived many times in the past and so will always be survived in the future. This is cause for hope and is strong proof that man's efforts to do so are never in vain.

What happened to the more robust stuff these other civilisations must have had?

Tex, have you ever covered the ancient temple recently discovered in Turkey ( Gobekli Tepe ). The one that is supposed to be ~11000 years old and is a major spanner in the works for 'modern' archeology?

That's an interesting idea. Such a concept should be easily verified by archeologists but all the scientific professions seems so corrupt I think it would be easy for them to ignore it.

The "more robust" stuff is the first thing to go.

Most manufactured metals, compounds and synthetics are nothing but an odd dust in 1000 years. Few stones survive and the ones that do are of peculiar composition like the blocks of the pyramid.

Despite the vanity of men, the truth is anything he makes with his hands is very transitory and the more complex it is, the likelier it is to be very temporary.

What about his gold watches?

Metals tarnish and rust and precious metals and stones will be lost, reused and melted down where possible. Construction materials are also reused. Even in the last few hundred or thousand years we've seen castles, Christian monastaries, abbeys all stripped of stone over the years. Ancient Roman and Greek structures suffered the same fate. All abandoned buildings, items or materials of any possible use or worth would suffer the same. Why go digging in a mine or quarry when you've got a heap of it nearby to use?

Some things survive because of their sheer size, lack of population nearby and difficulty of access, but there aren't many things outside of pyramids or similar structures that fall into this category.

What does this story of Plato concerning Atlantis alludes to? It seems to be a repeating theme: An original good stock that builds a great nation only to be destroyed by admixture with other races:

".. the divine element in them became weakened by frequent admixture with mortal stock, and their human traits became predominant, [and] they ceased to be able to carry their prosperity with moderation. To the perceptive eye the depth of their degeneration was clear enough, but to those whose judgment of true happiness is defective they seemed, in their pursuit of unbridled ambition and power, to be at the height of their fame and fortune."
