    I have already responded to your question about the construction of the pyramids, and will not repeat myself here.
    I will add that the Israelites, if they ever were in Egypt (for which there is no evidence other than the Biblial texts) did not construct the pyramids. For one thing, the place names given in the Bible for the cities of the Israelites in Egypt all refer to places in the Delta. For another, most scholars who do believe in the historical veracity of the events related in the book of Exodus place the date of the Israelites departure from Egypt in the reign of Ramses II of the New Kingdom.

    Now, Ramses II reigned between either 1279 and 1212 BC or 1290 and 1224 BC, depending on whether you accept the High or Low Chronologies.
    The last royal pyramid in Egypt was constructed around 1550 BC – roughly 300 years before the reign of Ramses II.
    And the pyramids of Giza, which are what most people think of when they think of pyramids in Egypt were constructed around 2500 BC (precise dates are available for the reigns of each of the kings responsible for each of the pyramids at Giza, but I’m not in the mood to type them all out right now).
    In any case, that’s, oh…a good thousand years before the supposed date of the Exodus.

    Now, on to the question about real gods in Ancient Egypt. The gods of Ancient Egypt were as real to the ancient Egyptians as the Hebrew/Christian/Islamic god is to millions of believers or as real any number of other deities of other modern religions are to the practioners of those religions.

    There are no real gods anywhere, but the idea was a great thing for primitive people.

    The Egyptians thought their Kings and Queens became Gods, so they built the temples and Pyramids for them while they Lived!

    So after they died and became god, they had these cool houses to be god inside.

    So, let’s tell everyone we need them to b uild us some great houses like the pyramids.

    Oh, sorry, that’s what all the churhces do anyway.

    There’s only 1 true God and that is God of the Holy Bible.

    No one knows with any 100% certainity how the pyramids were created; although, it has been argued that it would have taken several thousand slaves to have built it.

    Most likely the Israelites, who were Jewish, helped to build the pyramids, if not entirely, on their own due to their enslavement. For further information about the Israelites and their plight in Egypt, then please feel free to read the Book of Exodus in the Bible.

    In ancient Egypt, the Hebrew workers knew the real God. So the answer to your main question is Yes, there was one.

    As for the pyramids. Have you ever noticed that there are pyramids all over the world? Look at the ones in Mexico. There are more in different places.

    As for Egypt, have you ever looked at the Sphinx? The head is too small for the body. Also the head looks newer than the body. Someone once suggested that the body looks like it has water erosion on it making it over 10,000 years old. That’s before the Egyptians were there. If the Sphinx originally had a lion’s head, then someone changed it to a man’s head, that would explain the differences.

    Just thought I’d make you think a little. 🙂

    Yes, the Gods in Ancient Egypt were more real than the Gods of today. The Beings who were responsible for the DNA Science that expidited evolution of current Humans from Homo Erectus to Homo Sapien lived among humans for some time and humans served them.

    These Supreme beings, Gods, Angels, Eloheems or Aliens whatever you want to call them began to have offsprings with Humans that became part Gods themselves and therefore the leaders of men or the nobility. If you notice the Eqyptian Nobels always chose their mates from their own family to keep as much of the supreme DNA as they could. After the Gods were ready to leave earth they taught their Genetic children the knowledge to operate a society, i.e. science, math, agriculture.

    These hybrid children of the Gods i.e. The Eqyptian Pharaoh were able to communicate with their parents through psychic ability and/or dreams/visions and they ruled over common men on earth and became Gods themselves to their citizens.

    This has been happening long before egypt. The Ancient Summarians/Babyloninas/Assyrians/Pursians also shared this history. Visit this website for more info

    Shoveling Ferret (above) is spot on.

    The pyramids took:

    – Math

    – Organisation

    – Lots of rock

    – An Empire that needed something to do with a lot of slaves

    Nothing supernatural there.

    Nor was that question really an excuse to prompt the Bible salesmen. But you never know…

    No. Gods do not exist.

    Well, their gods were certainly real to them. It’s no different than what we think of our god today.

    And to the poster who said that the pyramids were built by slaves: this is a common misconception. The pyramids were NOT built by slaves; they were built by farmers who were paid and generally treated very well.

    There were no real gods in ancient egypt, honest. They had knowledge of methematics, astronomy, slave labor, pulleys, scaffolding, ramps….

    Miracles or help from the heavans cannot possibly occur in reality because they would violate or modify firmly established natural laws of the universe, such as gravity, time or entropy. If anyone tried to rearrange these fundamental forces, the whole universe would instantly come to a screeching halt.

    After horrendous disasters or personal calamities, religious people commonly thank their god for the miracle of saving them or helping them. It does not occur to them that, if god is omnipotent, he could have prevented the disaster before it struck in the first place. Since god did not prevent the disaster, he obviously harmed his poor believer purposely and with malice. Who needs gods like that?
