French Architect Solves 4,500-Year-Old Pyramid Mystery; Awaits Answer - Articles Surfing


A French architect has surprised the archeological world by claiming that the Great Pyramid, in which the Pharaoh Cheops resided for an unexpectedly long time, was built from the inside out ' and the innovative Parisian has presented 3-D, computer-generated images to back his theory. He is now awaiting an answer from Egypt's Supreme Council On Antiquities.

Consider the riddle has challenged the minds of people who have nothing more important to think about for some 4,500 years, it seems expected that the response might take some time.

Prior to his pointedly different proposal, the theories were that it was assembled with an enormous ramp in the front or a corkscrew affair around the outside. But Jean-Pierre Houdin has the images to show that the main ramp was thirty to fifty feet under the outside, outlining, if you can believe it, a pyramid within a pyramid.

His computer model shows that the resourceful builders only used an exterior ramp for the first 140 feet of laborious and idiotic construction and then switched to a corkscrew-shaped inner ramp for the remainder of the 450-foot blockbuster tomb.

Houdin maintains he's right for the most obvious of reasons, stating, 'This is better than the other theories, because it is the only theory that works.'

A well-known Egyptologist commented, "This goes against both main existing theories. I've been teaching them myself for 20 years, but deep down I know they're wrong.' He went on to say, 'Houdin's vision is credible, but right now this is just a theory. Everybody thinks it has got to be taken seriously.'

Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities is still deliberating.
