Elon Musk said that the Egyptian pyramids were built by aliens. In response, the Egyptian authorities called him to check the graves of the builders
Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk supported the theory that the pyramids in Egypt were the work of an extraterrestrial civilization.
“The aliens built the pyramids, it’s obvious”, – he tweeted.
Musk also added that the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II “was 😎”, apparently so he hinted at the toughness of the ruler.
The businessman was answered by the Minister of International Cooperation of Egypt, Rania al-Mashat. She didn’t directly deny the version of the extraterrestrial origin of the pyramids. Instead, the minister invited Musk to Egypt to “study the texts on how the pyramids were built, and also check the graves of the pyramid builders”.
“I follow your work with great admiration. I invite you and SpaceX to study the texts on how the pyramids were built, as well as check the graves of the pyramid builders. Mister Musk, we are waiting for you “
Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawas called Musk’s claim about aliens a “hallucination.”
“I found the graves of the pyramid builders, which suggests that the pyramid builders were Egyptians and they were not slaves”, he said.
After that, Elon Musk posted a link to the BBC material, which, he said, “reasonably” explains how the pyramids were built. This text says, among other things, that the study of the remains of the pyramid builders found no traces of an alien race.
But maybe Musk really knows something. In September 2018, when he came to Joe Rogan’s podcast, the host asked how the billionaire was doing.
“I’m an alien”, Musk replied. And he smiled mysteriously.
