    The first monumental building in stone? Splitting hairs here… There are older stone tombs in the archaeological records, surely.

    Imhotep seemed like a cool dude before he started using black magic and killing people

  • John Bravar on March 22, 2021

    0:50 theres no proof it was the first , and it was made of red brick that lost all of its colour .We might never know what was built first because almost everything was melted from the bottom up from an extreme heat event , check out @UCk-Vbr0bPhem1sWhQGHUvew​

    Great information of lies. The Nation of Egyptians did not build pyramids in Egypt. They had slaves who they had in captivity. Big difference. Pharaoh had to let go of who Israelites? Moses was mistaken for an Egyptian. And he was even called a Hebrew boy when he was found in the river as an infant. Why? Cause Egyptians look like Israelites cause of their dark brown complexions but they're not us Hebrew Israelites. Why you think Yeshua father and mother was instructed to flee to Egypt by the Angel, and our Messiah went as he got older. You can't flee to a Nation of people that doesn't have your complexion. Why? You'll stand all the way out. That like me living in an all predominantly Esau territory in a neighborhood. I'm going to stand out no matter what cause I'm not the same complexion as the the people in that territory that lives there. Again a lie from history. It's not for debate. Read and study and you'll acknowledge that our history has been washed up. Qam Yarsharala to the family. And Shalawam

    Last pyramid, not the first. It was an inheritance/legacy civilization. They copied what the saw was already ancient back then.

  • Linda Mullaly on May 6, 2021

    Imhotep was Joseph of the bible. His bones were removed as per his wishes.

  • ST MARK on May 17, 2021

    Hotep = Joseph
    They never found his remains in Egypt because it was brought back to Canaan (Israel) by his descendants/relatives.

  • Rameela Rustam on May 18, 2021

    Atlantis Found

    To see Atlantians architectural feats – We need only to look beneath Egyptian feet

    how could such a city be built in watery circles – melting ice caps give time to to accomplish these hurdles

    Did the Gods sink Atlantis in an epic spite- Or can tectonic borderlines swallow you up in one night

    was the Mediterranean always known by that name – Or was the Atlantic a good enough name all the same

    why would two cultures speak of such a wonder so dear – if it were so distant a place instead of so near

    if you don't want to chase clues to fill in the gap – then maybe it's time to just follow the map

    I know they weren't artsy and drew kind of simple – could this be why they didn't fill their pyramids with symbols

    lying with treasures by royalty so angelic – not a treasure itself but already a relic

    Now look closer at the details of the Nubian ostrich egg – cause I think ~ 33°N 29°E is where we should stick our last peg.

  • Agyemang Bediako on December 18, 2021

    Off course this cannot be the oldest pyramid in history. It is profoundly right and more revealing to look to Nubia where the technology of pyramid building was developed and refined before they were replicated in Egypt. Science teaches us to build prototypes and models before larger scales can be attempted. We see all these conclusions as unscientific and fraught with lies. This massive structure certainly cannot be the first. The trial and error took place further south of the Nile.
