What explains the mysteries of the pyramids? If it was the Egyptians then where did they develop the mathematical and astronomical knowledge to build with such accuracy? This boon of knowledge around that period seems abnormal in comparison with the period. Inside Hebrew texts, we can provide information about a mysterious race called the Nephilim.
The great pyramid of Giza is the largest pyramid as well as the first built in Giza. In the construction, it uses 2.3 million stones blocks which weight 2.5 to 15 tons each. (National Geographic). It is made of limestone rock, and some histories suggest the peak was initially capped in gold. It is directionally facing true north.
It is astounding in its mathematical principles, “The pyramids at Giza are sometimes called the only “true” pyramids because they are the only ones in Egypt with sides that rise at the “perfect” angle of 52 degrees. … This angle embodies in the Pyramid the mathematical pi factor!’ but more significantly, it is only at 52 degrees that the ratio of the height of the Pyramid to its base perimeter is the same as that of the radius of a circle to its circumference! Furthermore, the 52-degree pyramid also builds in the special geometric feature of the golden section.”
CAN WE DETERMINE THE LIKELY ARCHITECTS OF THE PYRAMIDS?
We also know that the Giza pyramids are aligned with the stars, specially the constellation Orion’s belt which in the period was known as Osiris. In astronomy, there is a cycle every 26000 years known as Precession. This is where the earth shifts a little on its axis and leads to different positions of the stars in our sky. This is how we know what the sky looked like at that time, in fact. But it also means the Egyptians, in their calculations, must also have known about precession and the fact that the earth is not perfectly spherical. We certainly know other monuments in the world have star alignments as well.
There are references we can begin to analyze of Nephilim in the Bible.
“When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, z“My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came into the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.” Biblia Genesis 6: 1-4
Here there are references to the ‘sons of God’ taking wives. Who were these sons of God? These were the Nephilim who then had children of ‘renown.’ They have mentioned again:
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? 6 On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, 7 when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” Biblia Job 38 ‘Sons of God’ in this reference refers to a creation aspect and angels which we see typically in the text. “Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and rose up in haste. He declared to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods” Biblia Da3.24
The Hebrew word for ‘malak’ is translated as an angel, and in Greek it is aggelos but it is perhaps more precise to translate it as messenger. So these references to a son of the gods, referring to an angel, are more accurately referring to a messenger. It is important to remember in the first quote the sons of God reproduced with women, and their children were of ‘renown.’ We refer to them as giants, and in Hebrew, Nephilim is translated to ‘fallen ones.’ They are referenced as giants and as being before and after Noah.
We know there is a technological gap with the Egyptians and other cultures who produce amazing feats in mathematics and astronomy. By using ancient text, we have clear references to the Nephilim who can be seen as messengers for humanity. If angels can be seen as messengers think of the over 300 references to angels in the Bible to demonstrate the level of potential interaction. Perhaps they are the glue between the knowledge gaps we see in ancient cultures. Certainly, we have the references to show they were discussed.
