The pyramids are well understood. Yes, occasionally a whack job tries to deny the obvious, but there is no need to invoke aliens, kites or other strange methods. Google search Wally Wallington, heck here is a link to his site:

http://www.theforgottentechnology.com/

He got fascinated by his own work experience and found ways for one man to move massive blocks of stone that weighed more than ten tons by himself. His simple techniques could have been used on the Pyramids. No magic, just simple applied leverage.

Boats are another problem. The largest sea worthy "wooden" boat is about 100 feet shorter than the mythical ark and it had large iron reinforcing pieces. And we are not talking about any storm here, we are talking about the worst storm ever on an order of several magnitudes. Almost 30,000 feet of water had to be magicked onto the Earth and magicked away and yet it left no sign at all that the flood was ever here. How did that happen?

What do you mean? We know that the Noah'a Ark story is a myth. Just because a bunch of ignorant goatfuckers wrote a fairy tale does not make it true.
I would love to see the details of this boat. A true wooden boat the size of Noah's Ark has never been built and is certainly not seaworthy.
What do I mean? I meant exactly what I wrote.

Whether you believe the Biblical story or not, the description of the Ark is in Genesis for any and all that care to read it.

You want to see the details of the boat? Well, geewhiz, why not just follow the link to the story and see the details rather getting vulgar and demeaning.

By the way.... you don't know the story of Noah is a myth. You just presume so and not everyone agrees with you. Even a renowned scientist is more open minded on the subject that you.

I was just bustin' on your comment..

You are new to me but I will say, a fun poster..so many would have gone all over the deep end and ...well, you know..

No, I don't believe in divine creation..

The concept of a ship that would save the planet of species while a pee'd off creator fixed his control group is not where I am at either..

You be well..!

The recorded instructions to Noah for the plans of the ark were as follows:
6:14 Make for yourself a coffer ( box, chest, ark ) of pitch trees (cypress); nests shall you make in the coffer ( ark ), and you will cover it inside and outside with a covering ( pitch, bitumen ).
6:15 And thus you shall make it; three hundred cubits (~450 ft.) the length, fifty cubits (~75 ft.) its breadth, and thirty cubits (~45 ft.) its height.
6:16 A light you will make to the coffer ( ark ), and to a cubit you shall finish it above; and the opening to the coffer ( ark ) you will place in its side; with lower, second, and third floors you will do it.
6:19 And from every living thing of all flesh, two of all to come into the coffer ( box, chest, ark ), to keep alive with you; male and female they will be,
6:20 from the flying creature after their kind, and from the cattle after their kind, from every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two from all will come to you to keep alive.
6:21 And you take for yourself of all eatable that is eaten, and you will gather to yourself; and let it be for you and for them for eating.
7:2 From every creature clean will you take to yourself seven by seven, a man and his woman; and the creature that not clean it by two , a man and his woman;
7:3 of the flying creature of the skies seven by seven, a male and his female, to keep alive seed upon the face of all the earth.
Cool how you had all that memorized, and then just blurted it out all over.
I would've had to have looked it up, copied it and transposed it w/o typos.
Do you have the 'begat' stuff from earlier memorized as well?
