Elon Musk has Different Ideas about the Origin of the Pyramids
By Brayden Yin
The technology boss Elon Musk tweeted on July 31 that "Aliens built the pyramids obv.” Egypt's Minister of International Co-operation, Rania al-Mashat, responded on Twitter that she admired and respected Musk’s work, but she also told him to do some research on the true origin of the pyramids.
In exact words, she said “I follow your work with a lot of admiration. I invite you & Space X to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of the pyramid builders. Mr. Musk, we are waiting for you.” The Egyptian archeologist Zahi Hawass also responded to Musk’s tweet, with a short video narrated in Arabic, posted on social media. The video said that his tweet was a “complete hallucination.” “I found the tombs of the pyramids builders that tell everyone that the builders of the pyramids are Egyptians and they were not slaves,” Hawass was later recorded saying.
Hawass’ quote showed Musk that the builders were not slaves to aliens. Later, Musk tweeted a BBC History site about the lives of the pyramid workers, saying “This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.”
Elon Musk is known for his prolific tweeting, but with solid fact and the government of Egypt on their side, this is how Rania al-Mashat and Zahi Hawass defeated the wild tweets of Elon Musk.
