    Because the people who now live in Egypt are not the same race/culture who built the Pyramids. The people who now live in Egypt are invaders who came through with a new religion and culture; and destroyed the culture, traditions and religion of the original inhabitants.

    It is quite common throughout the history of the Middle East and Europe. Each wave of invaders brought new beliefs, new customs and destroyed what had previously been built by the now defeated culture.

    By Rah, I am assuming you mean the Sun God Re (or Amon Re). Each invading tribe brought their own Gods, so hence, the conquered people had to worship the Gods of the conquerors.

    It is the same reason why the British no longer honour their traditional Celtic Gods, or why the Europeans no longer honour the Heathen Gods.

    Pyramids were burial tombs for Pharaohs, and there are no longer Pharaohs. I’m not sure the exact reason they stopped speaking Egyptian, but it is most likely because of their proximity to Arabic-speaking countries that their language and religion changed.

    How come people in Italy aren’t Romans anymore? How come they don’t speak latin and don’t worship their 500 man-gods anymore?

    People in Egypt don’t build pyramids anymore because those pyramids were built in the Ancient Egyptian kingdom in the b.c’s.
    Egyptians are Arabs and speak Egyptian-Arab.
    Egyptians are Muslims.
    I have no idea what Rah is.

    You need to read a good history of Egypt up through the modern age!
    Ancient Egyptian culture started breaking down before the Greeks invaded, but then it really started going. With Greek being the official language of the state, fewer and fewer people could read hieroglyphs. Then the Romans came in, and then the Christians. The Christians enforced their religion as the offical one and destroyed the ancient temples and murdered priests.
    Then later the Muslims invaded. They passed laws making it uncomfortable to live as a Christian and to encourage converts to Islam….The Muslims sometime persecute Christians… The Muslims made the official language Arabic. The old Christians spoke Coptic, which is a continuation of ancient Egyptian… but hardly anyone speaks Coptic anymore, just a few priests.
    That’s the gist of it.
