Egyptologist dismisses Elon Musk claim that aliens built the pyramids

07 2020 Tesla CEO Elon Musk gestures during the Tesla China-made Model 3 Delivery Ceremony in Shanghai

"Therefore, we have to announce to this billionaire that archaeological, historical, and linguistic evidence proves that the builders of the pyramids are the ancient Egyptians, and that Ramses II is originally from Egypt's Delta".

It wasn't sure if the Tesla founder was joking or promoting a conspiracy theory that the pyramids were built by aliens.

Reacting to Mashat's invitation, some Twitter users called for the Tesla CEO to be given first class treatment.

Elon Musk's recent tweet on Egypt's pyramids being built by alien life forms has fetched a lot of attention from people, including Egypt's officials.

While there is actual evidence on how humans built the Egyptian pyramids, the mystery of why Elon Musk continues to tweet weird theories and conspiracies, still remains unsolved at the moment.

Elon Musk doesn't care if you like his Cybertruck.

"This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done", Musk said in another tweet. And also check out the tombs of the pyramid builders. "Three thousand, eight hundred years", he tweeted.


Hawass goes onto explain inscriptions within the Great Pyramids that depict the workers who helped build them.

Zahi Hawass, an Egyptian archaeologist, Egyptologist, and former Egypt Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs, also posted two short videos on Facebook, recorded in Arabic and English, in which he noted that Musk's claim was completely an illusion.

The tombs discovered in the 1990s are definitive evidence, experts say, that the magnificent structures were indeed built by ancient Egyptians. He also linked to articles about how some of the Great Pyramids of Egypt were built.

During an appearance on the Joe Rogan Podcast in 2018, in which he openly smoked marijuana with the host, Musk said that humanity is likely in a "simulation".

The researchers suggested the ramp was used to drag massive alabaster stones up a slope with sleds and rope.

He said: "If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then games will be indistinguishable from reality, or civilization will end".
