Whats interesting is that most likely the tip of pyramids were layered with gold. Some suggest that when the sun shined that one could see the pyramids from thousands of miles way on a clear day

Flat Earth Society members?
Lined with gold? Gee, and all of these years I thought the cap stone on top of the Great Pyramid was white limestone. The limestone would reflect the sunshine for many miles.
The top of a 450 foot pyramid would be visible no more than 26 miles aways.
The distance to the horizon in miles from height of an observer is approximately equal to 1.23 times the square root of the height in feet.
To be visible 1,000 miles away, it would have to be 126 miles tall!
So . . . I guess the earf was flat in olden times? - youd need pretty good eyes to see thousands of miles, I reckon. On a clear day? So if the weather is clear where Im standing, it has to be clear thousands of miles away too?
Some suggest? What? A view from orbit??
Even should someone believe in a Flat-Earth scenario, those (someone)s must deal with clouds, dust, and aerosols obscuring the view through the thousands of miles of atmosphere.
Back in the '80s I flew into Cairo and even with most of the outer casing removed, you could spot them MILES away.
Sitchen opined that they were beacons wherein the Nephilim coming down from space could line them up with their landing area. Fanciful or not, I'll bet with their casing intact they would have easily been spotted from above.
