    Very strange display of intellect by your teacher. I can only assume he was joking or referring to the teaching of Modern History,but even then they have relevance as they were the site of The Battle of the Pyramids and have many other connections with modern history also geology and astronomy. They could even be significant in the study of urban planning and environmental impact of urban pollutants.
    My other guess is that he is a "closet creationist"and the science of technologically dating the past with no logic for dispute, is getting just a bit too close to his comfort zone.
    He may be among those who are increasingly concerned just how long they can maintain the theory that the Biblical flood only occurred 3.000 years before Christ.
    The main thing is that you as a student are questioning his actions. If necessary you should demand to know the reason for the choice.

    That is incorrect. But some Swiss society suggested a new group of the seven wonders of the world and started to collect votes from the public. This is bad because the public cannot give an opinion with depth. The last move was that The pyramids were given an honorary title as one of the seven wonders of the world to avoid voting of that sort that can by bias or ignorance affect its true value.

    This is either a joke or your geography teacher should be taken out of teaching.

    i really think you should ask him to explain the statement, i am a teacher and i think the history of ancient egypt plays an important part in looking at world history and understanding many things that help to make our world today. including art, religion, architechture and its origins, to mention only 3. All of which have relavence to today’s world and to pyramids.
    perhaps he was joking. i do hope so.

    He was not joking I guess. I can expect also who is behind that theory, but it’s not a big problem. The Pyramids stayed for thousands of years and many people died by their envy.

    I think it’s a suitable occasion to mention the other funny theories which appears in books till now.
    1- Jews built the Pyramids
    2- Pyramids were built by aliens
    3- Pyramids were built to protect the country from Nile flood
    The goals of these theories and the future similar theories are the same. They want to tell that Egypt and Egyptians either ancients or modern, has no relation with building the Pyramids. I prefer to let them sleep in their ignorant dreams.

    I really do hope that he is kidding! Ancient Egypt is a very important topic to learn about; not only were the Egyptians essential for that time period, but their influence still lives on today. The pyramids were the largest structures ever built until the Effiel Tower was built. That’s real human accomplishment! And my friends wonder why I’m losing faith in the today’s educational system….
