CAIRO – 2 August 2020: Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass said that the money of the billionaire founder of Tesla Company, Elon Musk, did not make him famous, so he decided to announce that aliens came from space to build the Great Pyramids of Giza.
Hawass further stated that Musk mentioned that King Ramses II also came from space.
“I did not really want to comment on those statements as they are not worthy, but the misleading information went viral and I had to comment, especially that it is not backed with any scientific evidence,” said Hawass.
“Therefore, we have to announce to this billionaire that archaeological, historical, and linguistic evidence proves that the builders of the pyramids are the ancient Egyptians, and that Ramses II is originally from Egypt’s Delta. His family lived in Pi-Ramesses when it was the new capital built by the Nineteenth Dynasty Pharaoh Ramesses II at Qanatir and ruled Egypt during that period.”
Moreover, Hawass further indicated that the tombs of the laborers located by the pyramids prove to the whole world that the Great Pyramids of Giza was the national project of Egypt at the time, and that the Pyramids were built over a time-span of 32 years.
“I ask this billionaire to educate himself and read what was written about the pharaohs and the pyramids so that he knows that the pyramids are not related to space, and that Egyptians built the Great Pyramids of Giza, and that King Ramses II is an Egyptian from the Delta region,” concluded the veteran archaeologist.
