Egypt Extends Invite To Elon Musk After He Tweets About The Great Pyramids Being Built By Aliens

The country of Egypt has extended a travel invite to Elon Musk to come visit the county and their iconic Great Pyramids, just after he tweeted some conspiracy theories about the landmarks.

Over the weekend, the tech CEO hypothesized that the three ancient wonders of the world were actually built by aliens, and suggested that one of the pharaohs was one himself.

“Aliens built the pyramids obv,” he wrote. “Ramses II was [cool face emoji].”

Elon went on, trying to prove the theory as fact: “The Great Pyramid was the tallest structure made by humans for 3,800 years. Three thousand, eight hundred years…This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.”

After seeing his posts, Egypt’s Minister of International Co-operation, Rania al-Mashat, invited him to come visit the landmarks and see the actual tombs of the people who built them, hinting that they weren’t aliens.

Later on, famed archaeologist Zahi Hawass filmed a short video about Elon’s theories and dismissed the notion of the Pyramids being built by aliens.

“[The] pyramids [were] built by Egyptians and I will tell you quickly the evidence,” he says, adding that he has “found the tombs of the pyramids builders that tell everyone that the builders of the pyramids are Egyptians and they were not slaves…[it was] a national project of the whole nation.”

If you missed it, Elon has been brought up multiple times during a libel case between this famous former couple.
