Aspects of the Great Pyramid
The casing stones, 144,000 in all, were so brilliant that they could
literally be seen from the mountains of Israel hundreds of miles away.
On bright mornings and late afternoons, sunlight reflected by this vast
mirrored surface of 5-1/4 acres distinguished the Pyramid as being
visible from the moon.
(Note: For those interested in possible symbolic significance, in Bible
prophecy 144,000 is the number of people—12,000 from each of the 12 tribes
of Israel—who are supposed to evangelize the world at the end time, and
ever be next to God for all eternity.)
The people of the area had viewed the Pyramid and its polished stones
with awe for centuries. But when a 13th century earthquake loosened some
of these casing stones, the Arabs recognized a great quarry of precut
stones that could be used to finish off palaces and mosques. For
instance, the casing stones were used to rebuild the new city of El
Kaherah plus Cairo mosques and palaces, including the Mosque of Sultan Hasan.
Amazingly, the outside surface stones are cut within 0.01 (1/100th) inch
of perfectly straight and at nearly perfect right angles for all six
sides. And they were placed together with an intentional gap between
them of 0.02 inch. Modern technology cannot place such 20-ton stones
with greater accuracy than those in the Pyramid.
Even more amazing is that the 0.02-inch gap was designed to allow space
for glue to seal and hold the stones together. A white cement that
connected the casing stones and made them watertight is still intact and
stronger than the blocks that it joins.
Let's pause from our tour for a moment's rest and reflection. Whoever
built the Pyramid used a technology that we still do not possess today
to cut, move, and cement stones. Whoever built it also had some
knowledge of the Earth, because it was built in the right spot—one of
the few places that would support such a great weight. It is estimated
that it has settled about 0.25 inches since it was built. while much
less massive modern buildings settle inches in a matter of a decade or
so. The builder also knew where the greatest land mass of the Earth was in both the
North-South and East-West directions.
We know from geometry that there is a universal relationship between the
diameter of a circle and its circumference. Consider this: The height of
the Pyramid's apex is 5,812.98 inches, and each side is 9,131 inches
from corner to corner (in a straight line). If the circumference of the
Pyramid is divided by twice its height (the diameter of a circle is
twice the radius), the result is 3.14159, which just happens to be pi.
Incredibly, this calculation is accurate to six digits. So the Pyramid
is a square circle, and thus pi was designed into it 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Pi
is demonstrated many times throughout the Pyramid.
Other numbers are also repeated throughout. Each of the Pyramids four
walls, when measured as a straight line, are 9,131 inches, for a total
of 36,524 inches. At first glance, this number may not seem significant,
but move the decimal point over and you get 365.24. Modern science has
shown us that the exact length of the solar year is 365.24 days.
All of the evidence in the Great Pyramid shows that 4,600 years ago
somebody knew a great deal about the Earth. But it gets better, much
better: The average height of land above sea level (Miami being low and
the Himalayas being high), as can be measured only by modern-day
satellites and computers, happens to be 5,449 inches. That is the exact
height of the Pyramid.
All four sides of the Pyramid are very slightly and evenly bowed in, or
concave. This effect, which cannot be detected by looking at the Pyramid
from the ground, was discovered around 1940 by a pilot taking aerial
photos to check certain measurements. As measured by today's laser
instruments, all of these perfectly cut and intentionally bowed stone
blocks duplicate exactly the curvature of the earth. The radius of this
bow is equal to the radius of the Earth. This radius of curvature is
what Newton had long been seeking.
