Did ETs build the pyramids as a gateway to the universe for our ancestors? Do the pyramids and Sphinx transmit ET energy? The show and its experts propose yes to both questions, but archeologists and historians do not agree.

Standing at nearly 500 feet and weighing approximately 6.5 million tons, the Great Pyramid in Giza is the last remaining wonder of the Seven Wonders of the World. Because it is such a spectacle, it is the subject of many conspiracy theories, some of which are presented frequently on Ancient Aliens. Egyptologists say that the Great Pyramid and the other 100 or so ancient Egyptian pyramids were likely built by humans as tombs for Egyptian pharaohs and their relatives; however, ancient astronaut theorists featured on Ancient Aliens have other ideas about their origin and purpose.

Although Ancient Aliens is aired on History, investigate what the show exhibits as fact. Just because the hosts are excited about what they are saying and seem to fully believe the ideas they are presenting, examine the evidence for yourself.
