Pyramid Illusions: A Journey To The Truth challenges the common theories about the Egyptian stone pyramids. Pyramid Illusions is a culmination of original research, imaginative writing, and many useful illustrations to help the reader envision him/herself at the sites and interiors of the Egyptian masonry pyramids. By reviewing the facts on the sites, the reader is capable of separating the fact rom the fiction and finding that the pyramids are not tombs, the stone blocks of the pyramids were man-made and not quarried, ramps were not used, and slaves did not build the pyramids. Readers will become informed about the ancient Egyptian tombs and how they differ from the stone pyramids. They will learn how and when ancient Egyptians manufacture hard stones for jewelry, jars, vessels, statues, as well as for the pyramid blocks, and much, much more. Controversial, articulate, challenging, Pyramid Illusions is a fascinating contribution to Egyptology. -- Midwest Book Review

Scholars also have come to the conclusion that the pyramids were not even built by slave labor. They were built by Egyptian craftsmen who willingly took part in the project, and who were paid to do it. The men who erected the great pyramids did so willingly, and with a great sense of "mission" or purpose.
Gadalla takes this line of thinking one step farther. He states that the pyramids were not built as tombs for the pharaohs. First of all, they were not decorated like traditional Egyptian royal tombs (in fact, they bear no inscriptions at all). They were not laid out like traditional tombs. There is no evidence that any royal mummies were ever placed there. There is no evidence that grave robbers ever desecrated them.
As for their construction, he points to the lack of evidence for ramps in their construction. How, then, were they built? He states that the limestone blocks were pre-cast in place, just like we would do today with concrete.
A previous reviewer describes the writing as that of a young adult. Sir, that's an insult to young adults who have better brain patterns than this author.
Warning: BUY THIS BOOK AT YOUR PERIL!!!!!!!!!!
This should not be on the market. There are better books out there with much better and more accurate information.
This was written by a young adult, certainly not by the same author of "Egyptian Cosmology" or "Exiled Egyptians." This entire book is an insult to Pyramidology and Egyptology.
