The Great Pyramid of Giza
The last of the Seven Wonders of the World that still stands, the Great Pyramid of Giza, is a mystery to us, even today. The structure that held the record for the tallest man-made structure for 3,000 years until England’s Lincoln Cathedral stole it’s thunder in 1300, boggles the minds of scientists, historians and lay people alike.
With an estimated weight of six million tones, standing at 479 ft tall with a base of 754 ft and the total structure size of 13 acres, it’s a massive architectural wonder. It’s said that the pyramid consists of 2.3 million limestone and granite rocks, some that weigh as much as 80 tonnes on their own.
How was it built?
The Great Pyramid of Giza sits on Giza Plateau near modern Cairo. The Great Pyramid, also called the Pyramid of Khufu or Cheops, is the largest of the three that was built under the rule of Khufu, the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty, for himself. The other two were built for his son Khafras and his son Menkaure.
We know that the pyramid was finished sometime between 2450 and 2560 CE. But beyond that, we know almost nothing. That’s because we’ve found no records of how or why it was constructed.
It’s most commonly understood that it was constructed as a tomb for the Khufu to be entombed in—though I do feel obligated to point out that his remains have never been found. It’s believed that they were stolen from the pyramid.
Though in the early 2000s a pair of French amateur Egyptologists said they believed it was still in the pyramid in an undiscovered chamber.
This theory would coincide with what we do know about Ancient Egyptian death rituals. However, not everyone believes this explanation. Especially considering the fact that it seems logistically impossible to place some of the blocks, namely the gigantic slabs of granite in the chamber meant to be Khufu’s tomb.
One of the theories out there is that the pyramid was built for and possibly by extraterrestrials, largely due to the overwhelming lack of information we have its construction and perhaps it is some sort of ancient power plant as Christopher Dunn discusses in his book The Giza Power Plant.
While some like the Journal of Applied Physics have their own theories on the Great Pyramid's potential uses.
But most modern Egyptologists believe that there is a simpler explanation as to why we have no record. They believe the Ancient Egyptians simply constructed it with technology that was so well-known to them that they felt no need to jot it down for future generations.
Did Sasquatch Help Build the Pyramids?
Aliens aren’t the only possible help that the Egyptians received in constructing their monument, a small population suspects that they used a “combination of technology and muscle” but it wasn’t just man.
In her book titled “Top Secret Sasquatch: Exposing the True Nature of Bigfoot and Its Controversial Connection to UFOs, the Fossil Record, and Human History (Forbidden Bigfoot, Part Two” Lisa A. Sheil proposes that the muscle the Egyptians used was from their friendly neighborhood Sasquatch.
It’s a short couple of paragraphs in her book, but her evidence consists of the fact that Sasquatch has been around for thousands of years and probably existed at the time, though I personally can’t find any record that says that they were spotted in and around Egypt at the time—which I’ll say could also be to the severe lack of records we have—and the fact that witnesses describe them as strong.
That being said, I couldn’t find any Egyptologists that weighed in on the topic, but most agree that the Great Pyramid was constructed over a period of 23(ish) years by employed and paid Egyptian workers that were hired for their skill—not Hebrew slaves as depicted in the Bible, but even that was put to question in an article by the Associated Press.
So how was the Great Pyramid constructed and what was it's purpose? Well, It remains one of the Seven Wonders of the World for a reason.... and whether or not Sasquatch had a role to play who knows - Perhaps ancient giants such as the biblical Nephillim may have survived and could potentially fit the bill. That being said if one was present it sure would make moving all those stones that much easier......
I suggest you crack open a beer with one of our fancy Sasquatch bottle openers while you ponder that one and let me know in the comments below.
What is your theory on the Great Pyramid?

Sasquatch isn’t the only cryptid that we believe exists out there, we’ve probably all heard of the Loch Ness Monster and Rougarou, but what about Afghanistan giants—possibly the Nephilim?
It was 2002, when an alleged, still classified military mission came across these creatures. All the soldiers of a patrol in a report part of Afghanistan mysteriously went missing without a word, so a search party was sent out to see if they could find out what had happened.
The rescue party was descending a goat path down the side of a mountain when they came across a cave that had lots of rock, “bone matter” and a piece of what one soldier identified as military communication equipment outside of it.
The whole situation seemed off when, out of the cave they saw something moving at a speed higher than they expected, barrelling out of the cave. It was a monster—one with long, scarlet red hair past his shoulders and a scraggly beard. He was “at least 12 to 15 feet in height” and 1,100 lbs. It had six fingers and six toes, and it smelled “worse than a skunk” akin to a corpse that had been dead for a while.
The creature, three times the size of a man, came charging out of the cave and managed to “skewer” one of the soldiers on a pike before they managed to kill it. In the aftermath, the large, unexplained body was taken by a special unit. And, to make matters more mysterious, while the original after-action report that contained the entire story was rewritten.
Afghanistan Giant Killed: What Do We Know?
The Afghanistan Giant that was allegedly killed in 2002, sounds like it could be describing Sasquatch, or some relative creature. With its large stature, scraggly hair, strength and foul odor, is it possible the patrol ran into the Afghanistan version?
Many people familiar with this encounter actually believe the Afghanistan Giant to be a Nephilim, not a Sasquatch. The Nephilim is a biblical creature resulting from the mating of divine beings with human women. They are written about in the books of Genesis, Ezekiel and Numbers, and are described as being “great warriors and Biblical giants.”
While Snopes.com stated that the U.S. government said that they have no record or information regarding a death involving a giant. If the mission continues to remain classified, it’s not terribly surprising.
Some conspiracy theorists on Reddit propose that certain regions of the countries closed for travel are reserve-type spaces closed off so that visitors don’t disrupt the giant population in the country. However, it’s much more likely that these areas are dangerous to travel due to political forces.
But, the real question is, could this creature really be a Nephilim?
It’s a true mystery to ponder. While you’re doing that, make sure to grab our official camping mug so you can enjoy your coffee and listen to the Syndicate podcast while you’re out in the bushes—make sure to let us know if you spot your own Sasquatch!
What do you think about the Afghanistan giants? Do they exist? Are the Nephilim? Please let us know in the comments below, or email us. We'd love to hear from you!
