First, lets take a look at what some ancient scriptural passages have to say about the people who were most likely responsible for constructing the pyramids and ziggerats that surround the globe, and what they would have used them for. I wanted to post a few more that also seemed to back up my theory, but i figured this would be enough to at least allow you, the reader to understand my point of view and perhaps see the pyramids from my perspective, which vastly contradicts that of many of the more widly accepted pyramid theories. Keep in mind that I am not the only person who believes that the pyramids were used as water works or to serve some other practical use (grainaries, impregnable fortresses, and even alien bases have been suggested) and never as tombs.
Genesis 1:6-8, 20
And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. " And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
And God said, "Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven."
Since the antideluvian (pre-flood) atmosphere (aka. firmament) was under more pressure than it is today, due to the "waters above" that were separated from the "waters beneath" (Gen. 1:6-8), those who "warred against God" after the flood, in an attempt to escape death, built a tower because they wanted to live a few hundred years, like their antideluvian anscestors, as opposed to the 120 or less that we humans can survive, post flood.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.And they said one to another, "Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly."And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.And they said, "Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.And the Lord said, "Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
The Heifer 102. (que'ran)
And they followed what the devils taught during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but it was the devils who disbelieved. They taught the people witchcraft and what was revealed in Babylon to the two angels Harut and Marut. They did not teach anybody until they had said, “We are a test, so do not lose faith.” But they learned from them the means to cause separation between man and his wife. But they cannot harm anyone except with God's permission. And they learned what would harm them and not benefit them. Yet they knew that whoever deals in it will have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable is what they sold their souls for, if they only knew.
Sams Hyperbaric Pyramid Theory:
Before the flood of Noah, (if you believe that sort of thing) the people who inhabited the earth are said to have been able to live hundreds of years, with the oldest man who ever lived being 969 years of age. after the flood, the sons of noah and their wives began to multiply, but within a short time, Noah, Ham, Shem and Japheth began to actually outlive some of their offspring, and most people began to live less than a hundred years of age.
While a change in diet may have played a role in their loss of longevity, the most plausible reason for their (and our) early demise, compared to their antideluvian great grandparents, is an obvious change in their environment. Even though none of Noahs grandchildren had ever seen the antideluvian world with their own eyes, they understood what it was like because Noah and his sons and their wives would tell them stories and teach them songs (rote) about the earth before the flood, and how God had saved them from destruction in a boat filled with animals. (Noah wrote it down in Genesis, but many of the oldest cultures on earth still tell their children the stories of a great flood that destroyed the earth)
Some of those people became kings and political giants, and they amassed great wealth through their exploits in the new world, but many of them would get sick and die at a much younger age than their anscestors, and since nobody wants to die, they were willing to do anything to live longer and heal faster. Thats why the pyramids were built.
The original design for a tower that would help them escape death, was built in the location of Babylon, and many say that some of the ancient towers remains are still there. But, whatever technology they were using in Egypt was considered "black magic" by the queran, and we are told that fallen angels were selling this technology. (probably the same group of wizards that Moses confronted 400 years later) But, we know for a fact that the pyramids were just one of the many technologies developed by the egyptians and other cultures and people groups around the globe around 4,500 - 3,000 years ago, much of which still cannot be explained to this day.
Thats why I came up with my theory about the ancient pyramids from around the globe as being much more than simple tombs to house dead pharos (No mummy was ever found inside a pyramid, even though mainstream archaologists will say we know they were tombs for a fact), as most of us have been lead to believe from a young age, but as internal machines to perform tasks on a massive scale...
One way a pyramid can be used, is to house a RAM PUMP. The water pushed up hill from the nile, or cenote, depending on the location of the pyramid, would be used for waterways, and irrigation far above sea level. (see diagram)
Ram Pump technology would have been one application of the pyramids. this is how the egyptians were able to cultivate the land above the nile delta.
Another way a pyramid could be used is to create air pressure for running neumatic tools, or air conditioning, using a technology once widely implimented by the romans, called a TROMPE. This uses falling water to capture air bubbles in a tank, which can easily be controlled and utilized with a simple release valve.
I belive there is enough evidence to support the increasingly popular notion that the pyramids were never meant to be tombs, but served as high technology, using limited resources such as mud and clay. Many could have actually been used as living quarters for those elite few, who had the means and motivation to comission these massive structures to be built. It would stand to reason that if they were meant to "turn mortals into Gods" and escape death as long as possible, the pyramids would have been built to mimic the antideluvian environment that made it possible for their great grandparents to have lived so much longer than they could ever imagine.
Thats why i have proposed that The great pyramids of Giza, the massive pyramids in China, and far down into Africa, as well as Mexico and south america, were used as much more than giant tomb stones, but served as HYPERBARIC CHAMBERS, meant to help the people who built them or had enough money to use them to live longer and heal faster, by increasing the air pressure inside the living chambers of the pyramids. (i.e. the Kings Chamber) These internal chambers could be sealed off from the outside world, probably for weeks at a time, and the air pressure could have been increased to at least 3 times our current atmospheric pressure (much like modern hyperbaric chambers) and would have supersaturated the blood and hemogloben of any creature inside, allowing oxygen to flow into the very smallest of capilaries, and healing any injury much faster than normal. This technology would naturally give the body longevity, compared to anyone who could not afford such treatments, and people will give anything to feel better and live longer if possible.
The kings chamber (1) was probably used to create a pressurized environment that could be inhabited for days or even weeks at a time. Once the occupant was lifted up by a water elevator, (explaining why there were originally no steps in the grand gallery) through the grand gallery (possibly laying down), they would need to pass through an air lock (2), in order to seal off the chamber before the pressure inside could be increased.
The longer someone stayed sealed in the pyramid, the more food they would eat, and the more shits they would take, and there could be no chance of any fecal matter leaking out into the floor of the chamber, so they built the ceptic tank (3) out of one solid piece of granite, with no seams. (many people seem to believe that it was a sarcophogus, but since no mummy was ever found inside ANY of those so called sarcophogi, their guess is as good as mine) I have since proposed that the lid of the stone box would have been sealed, but the box/sarcophagus was hollow, so if the internal pressure became dangerous the lid (often made of alabaster) would crack and implode, making a loud noise and warning the pyramids resident that the pressure had reached a critical point and should be brought down immediately before the megalithic structure failed and cracked or worse exploded, vaporizing anyone inside.
The air pressure inside the room could be adjusted and monitored by valves, located at the air vents (4) which to this day have not been fully explored, and the danger of an explosion or cave in would be minimised by those pressure relief joists(6) and chambers (8) above the kings chamber, as well as the gabled roof above that. A two story house could have been built inside this chamber, out of cedar wood, and for all we know it could have been covered in gold. (one reason why it would have been gutted out by robbers)
After the flood, that "bubble" (ice/water canopy -Hovind Theory) around the atmosphere, that was no longer in place, and now the atmosphere is under much less pressure than it was before the flood. So, the highly intelligent, Post Flood Babylonians like Nimrod, began designing and building a stone/brick tower that would help them live longer and heal faster.
Many people ask me why they would need a stone ziggurat or pyramid to house such technology. What I tell them is that, soon after the flood, the only available resource was rock and mud/clay.
The post flood world was mostly a barren wasteland
The flood that destroyed all life except those few on the ark that would seed the planet, left very little wood or metal available for building and surviving in this harsh new climate, other than what they found readily available on the barren surface of the post flood planet, and so they used what resourses they had readily available; mostly mud, clay and sand, to build those massive structures that would promise to help them fight against death.
When God confused the languages, various groups of tower builders traveled to other parts of the world, to build towers and pyramids of their own. Not only does the pyramid or ziggarat designs show that all those ancient towers around the globe are somehow connected, but when we compare the internal chambers of the great pyramid in Giza, and those of others pyramids in china, central and south america, and around the globe, we can see that they were using similar technology to pressurize air and create a hyperbaric (antideluvian) conditions inside these towers, using water volume and the wight of millions of tons of concrete/stone. other towers would have also been build around internal Ram Pumps and Trompe Systems to destribute water for irrigation and to work the towers and water canals of the pyramid complexes.
Many people think that those pharos and kings who built the pyramids were trying to prepare for a life or transition after death, but there has never once been a single mummy or human burial found inside a pyramid, other than a foot in a side chamber and a few body parts (not a mummy) To me, this is simply more evidence that those so called tombs were actually used for practical, life-relevant applications such as irrigation, neumatic rock cutting tools and hyperbaric therapy treatment chambers to name a few.
How much would the average person be willing to pay for a therapy that is guaranteed to give health benefits like verility and longevity of the body? Think about that next time you wonder what would have motivated a society to grow around these massive stone structures.
There has recently been discovered a hidden chamber above the grand gallery (4) which could have been used as a reservoir to hold water (much like a modern toilet) which could have been used to "flush" the pyramid, and refill the grand gallery with fresh water, or to allow for the occupant to leave their pyramid home, and decompress in the outside atmosphere. There has also been shown to be a mote-like water works complex surrouding the pyramids,and boats complete with ours along side, burried in the sand. The water volume in this mote, could be used to run a ram pump and refill the "void" after it flushed (85% of the water volume from the ram pump would be sent out as a fountain, perhaps at the sphynx, since it has been shown that the nile river had been diverted into canals all throughout the nile delta and up to the edge of the Giza Plateu, and the sphinx was once surrounded by water.) When the Grand gallery (4) is filled with water, it lifts an elevator up to the kings chamber (5), where the environment can be sealed off for weeks or even months at a time. (the kings chamber is the size of a victorian house, and probably had multiple levels to its living quarters) The volume of water inside the grand gallery would also create pressurized air inside the queens chamber (6) and could then be monitored to control the hyperbaric atmospheric pressure inside the kings chamber(5) using valves and gages in the so called "air passages" (A)
Step Pyramid of Djoser, many say was designed and built by the prophet Joseph
Don't let the given names of the pyramid chambers fool you... there is plenty of evidence to suggest that the step pyramid was anything but a tomb. The entire step pyramid complex was built as a fortress, but also for a place of healing and meditation, complete with above ground temples, which could also have been pressurized and served the general public as a treatment center, among other things. The passageways underneath the ground are also covered in complex ornamentation, so it would make sense that people were alive inside them, to enjoy their beauty. To me, it would seem like a controlled environment for an entire family or royal court to inhabit was underneath the ground in those subterranian chambers. The "central passage" for example, would be a massive air pressure tank, once the complex was flooded with water (as we know it was) . The giand shafts that some say are ancient granaries, would have been filled with water, and the volume would have been used to compress the air inside, to be used for running air powered tools and controlled environments. This explains why so much weight had to be piled on top of the internal "pressure tank" because if it were too light, the pyramid would explode, instantly killing anyone inside. (some say there is evidence in egypt of an exploded pyramid, and even on easter island, where neumatic tools were used to carve the Moui statues as well as the island sphynx/watchdog that most people dont know is guarding the island)
What do you think the pyramids were used for?
Why do you think mainstream archaology would want you to believe that the pyramids are nothing more than massive gravestones that served no purpose other than to house dead mummies?
