Episode Summary

World's Greatest Mysteries Egyptian Pyramids: Amazing Artifacts Or Alien Edifices?
Controversy. Conspiracy. Confusion. History is fraught with events -- from local to global -- that have never been satisfactorily explained. What caused the dinosaurs to perish? How were the Egyptian Pyramids built? What happened to the great Inca civilization? Was John Wilkes Booth part of a large, sinister plot? Was George Armstrong Custer sacrificed to save the Grant Administration? Is there anything happening in Roswell, New Mexico, that should be shared with American citizens? Who shot John F. Kennedy? These and dozens of other international mysteries are investigated, explored, unraveled and reported. Egyptian Pyramids: Amazing Artifacts Or Alien Edifices? The three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now Cairo, Egypt in Africa, are among the most extraordinary structures ever built on planet Earth. The precision of the architecture, engineering, and construction all appear to be far more advanced than the building abilities of the Egyptians more than forty-five hundred years ago. The accuracy of the enormous pyramid's workmanship is so exact that the four sides of the base--each measuring 755½ feet--have a mean error of slightly more than two inches in length and 1 minute in angle from a perfect square. Historical assumptions have always suggested that the pyramids of Egypt were the burial tombs of the pharaohs. But, as this television program asks, --Why has no mummy ever been found in any of the pyramids??Although the pyramids have stood for thousands of years, they remain shrouded in mystery. The show explores the claims that the ancient curse that killed many scientists over the centuries was actually a strange fungus. It also investigates whether there is a secret chamber store housing knowledge to the secrets of the complex mathematics, astronomy, geology, and engineering that made the pyramids possible.moreless
