Actually NP, the evidence points to Egyptian working class building the pyramids- not slave labor. To insinuate that the Ancient people were retards who could figure out how to build and needed help from aliens is asinine. Pyramid construction was progressive. It started with mastabas, moved to step pyramids (which a HUMAN named Imhotep designed) and then to the pyramid structures we see on the Giza Plateau today.

According to Zahi Hawass (http://www.drhawass.com/) - whom I tend to believe: Egypt's archaeology chief Zahi Hawass said that discovery and the latest finds show that the workers were paid laborers, rather than the slaves of popular imagination. Hawass told reporters the workers were not recruited from slaves commonly found across Egypt during pharaonic times. Hawass said the builders came from poor Egyptian families from the north and the south, and were respected for their work - so much so that those who died during construction were bestowed the honor of being buried in the tombs near the sacred pyramids of their pharaohs.Their proximity to the pyramids and the manner of burial in preparation for the afterlife backs this theory, Hawass said. "No way would they have been buried so honorably if they were slaves," he said.
