From Benny Hasan on 02/05/2017


In The Great Pyramid – The Inside Story, by Robert Carson, the author claims that all of the physical evidence within the Great Pyramid points to hydraulic power having been used extensively in its construction. He describes how the hydraulic system functioned and he reconstructs the Great Pyramid based on the physical evidence that has been misinterpreted by Egyptologists.
He later goes on to state that the configuration of the blocks in the west wall at Baalbek confirms that hydraulic power was used to transport these massive blocks and instal them in this wall as there is no other rational explanation for its odd configuration. There is a series of three drawings (Figures 43a,b,c) on his website, that clearly shows how the oldest part of the west wall was built up.
It’s the most logical conclusion.
