This mini presentation is in response to recently aired TV programs and dramatizations depicting "how The Great Pyramid was built", which are often based on poor scientific reasoning and sloppy research. What this presentation addresses here are gross misrepresentations and omissions of significant contributions made by African people to the sciences, especially, that pertaining to The Great Pyramids of Ancient Egypt. Too often depicted are “stone dragging” theatrical scenes, where supposedly monolithic stones weighting in at 10, 20 to 40 or more tons are dragged around, which amounts to gross insults to the intelligence of historians as well as to clear thinking scientists who have done much work in their research on great achievements of African people and their focus on corrections to the gross omissions from the historical archives.
Such misrepresentations in African history seem to have gone unchallenged, apparently because there are too few challengers confident in the sciences, engineering, mathematics and just the basics in research and "pure" common sense. The are too few challengers who are willing to check these kinds of programs and hold the presenters accountable for their research.
As proof of the above, a focus is made on solid archeological evidence, most recent findings, astrophysical alignments, precision stone cutting techniques challenging to modern technical means. Biblical references are cited. Myths, historical fabrications, Hollywood style dramatizations of stone-dragging portrayals of pyramid construction, stone chiseling with copper tools and other scientifically unsupported claims pertaining to The Great Pyramid are herein examined for their inconsistencies using standard scientific method, modern archeological evidence and biblical references.
