This is just more of the attacks seen on Alan Keyes, where the Left must ridicule a conservative black man who may become President.
As far as the Pyramids of Giza go, as soon as their true historical function somehow affects how somebody will act as President, I’ll give a damn what a candidate thinks about them. Otherwise, they’re giant piles of rocks in an Egyptian desert.
You and I are probably some of the few in the entire world who see the pyramids for what they are. Granted, it took some advanced engineering for the time and years of heavy lifting by the Hebrews, but it still amounts to a pile of rocks. Although, I find some preserved tomb artifacts of the Pharaohs beautiful and interesting.
Compare the above to the accomplishments of Michelangelo. His works have transcended time in the hearts and minds more than a pile of rocks. He was a sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer.
Not good enough to counter Egypts rock piles?
How about Leonardo da Vinci? His interests and efforts and creations included: invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography. He has been variously called the father of paleontology.
Quite a bit more than some pharaoh having slaves drag stones up a slide to build his tombstone. Yes, the pyramids are historical and interesting, but the purpose is still nonsense. It added nothing to humanity and killed millions of slaves and put some pharaoh name in some some book that only paleontology professors care about.
Just the 2 above created eternal beauty mostly for the purpose of sharing with humanity and their own inner light. We still hold Mich & Vinci as the most talented ever of any era. When's the last time you ever heard the name of the engineer of any pyramid? The average person can't even name the gold mask of Tutankhamun when they see it, which was a beautiful historical find.
Sorry, I think the pyramids are over-rated. I've never tried to travel to Egypt to see them. However, would enjoy the museums with the preserved artifacts from the tombs. I'd rather look at the "Madonna" or the "Mona Lisa". One man; one brilliance alone for all.
