nonetheless one of many greatest items of structure ever built, the nice Pyramid has lengthy been the topic of ask yourself as to while it used to be outfitted, via whom, and most significantly, why. the normal rationalization is that it was once equipped through the reign of the Pharaoh Khufu by means of expert Egyptian workers as a funerary monument. within the nineteenth century, within the absence of difficult info except precise stories of its dimensions, a complete classification of hypothesis grew up which has been referred to as 'pyramidology.' The pyramidologists got here to think that the nice Pyramid encoded complicated wisdom of the actual universe, and the process human historical past. This publication is among the fundamental texts of pyramidology.

In addition to pyramidology, Joseph Seiss was once a Christian dispensationalist, a nineteenth century millennialist tuition of concept. The dispensationalists considered human historical past as a chain of covenants with God. They have been yes that the top of days may be pinpointed utilizing Biblical prophecy. This used to be the beginning of a suite of ideals commonly permitted by means of modern evangelical Christians.

Seiss advances many doubtful assertions, equivalent to his assertion that there have been no predecessors to the nice Pyramid. Egypt is dotted with dozens of past examples, together with a number of that collapsed as the Egyptians have been nonetheless experimenting with the right kind proportions. He makes a complete variety of claims that express dimensions of the good Pyramid, whilst extended through another quantity, could be linked to the dimensions of the axis of the Earth, its density, etc (a staple of the pyramidologist literature). He fits information of the internal passages to the dispensationalist timeline. And he someway concludes that the Egyptians didn't construct the pyramid, yet another hitherto imprecise race of Philistines, led by means of anyone named Melchisedec, who used to be just like the Biblical Job!

Seiss and the opposite nineteenth century pyramidologists have ample glossy successors. Their resolution to 'when' is going way back to the final ice age; their resolution to 'who' contains area extraterrestrial beings and Atlanteans, and their 'why' contains 'as a massive electric generator.' Time will inform no matter if their theories will seem as spurious as Seiss 100 years from now, or bring about a few radical new knowing of the 'Miracle in Stone.' --J.B. Hare
