Pyramids — Deep Misleading analysis on the “Lauer Sample”.

Hundreds of thousands of people have read articles and seen videos on the internet dealing with the pyramids of Egypt having been constructed from geopolymer concrete. The arguments of the opponents are always based on the same papers written by American geologists, published 15 to 30 years ago. The most cited study shown in the videos at YouTube is the analysis carried on the “Lauer Sample” by the American petrologist D. Jana, published in 2007. It is time to put an end to this pseudo-science.

What is the Lauer sample?

The controversy concerns the analysis performed on a sample of …

Ultimate Proofs Tiwanaku / Pumapunku Megaliths are Artificial Geopolymers

At the 10th Geopolymer Camp in 2018, Prof. Joseph Davidovits presented during his annual keynote a brief summary of his last studies on the Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco) / Pumapunku Megaliths. In November 2017, an international team (a geologist from Universidad San Pablo at Arequipa, Peru and a member of the Geopolymer Institute) went on the site to carry on a survey on these stones. After different analysis on thin sections and under an electronic microscope, Joseph Davidovits claims that his team has found “organic matter in volcanic rock“, which is, by nature, impossible. This points to man-made stone and …

Wrong statement on Pyramids of Bosnia

I wrote in my main article dedicated to the Bosnian Pyramids an update stating that: “According to our information, we believe that the sample of concrete that I have examined under the electron microscope comes from a type of cistern or water tank (the drilling report is mentioning a concrete “ceiling” and an empty space of 4 meters depth followed by a “concrete” floor, see the pdf below). The geopolymer concrete analyzed is a kind of Roman concrete, which in no way corresponds to the materials that constitute the casing of the pyramids and look like pudding stone. Consequently,

Paleomagnetism study supports Pyramid man-made stone

A recent scientific study published in the renown “Europhysics News“, The Magazine of the European Physical Society, (2012), Vol. 43, number 6, described how paleomagnetism study on several pyramid stones demonstrates the validity of Davidovits’ theory on the artificial nature of Egyptian pyramid stones.
Two scientists, Dr. Igor Túnyi from Geophysical Institute SAS – Bratislava (Slovak Republic) and Ibrahim A. El-hemaly from National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics – Cairo, Egypt, made the following assumption (quote from their scientific paper):

Our paleomagnetic investigation of the two great Egyptian pyramids, Kufu and Khafre, is based on the assumption

NOVA mini-pyramid: fiasco and swindle

In recent weeks, several internet forums discuss my involvement in a documentary made in 1991 by the American channel PBS, famous for it popular science program “NOVA” and entitled This Old Pyramid. The objective of NOVA was the illustration of different techniques proposed by experts in the construction of the pyramids of Egypt. NOVA had decided to build at Giza, a mini-pyramid, according to the “old techniques”. I related my experience in several of my books: in French (Ils ont bâti les pyramides, 2002; La nouvelle histoire des pyramides, 2004 and 2006) and in English more recently …

New analysis shows artificial Pyramid stone

A new scientific analysis demonstrates the artificial nature of Egyptian Pyramid stone. The article titled: “Were the casing stones of Senefru’s Bent Pyramid in Dahshour cast or carved? Multinuclear NMR evidence” was published in Materials Letters 65 (2011) 350–352, by an international team of scientists involving Kenneth J.D. MacKenzie (MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand), Mark E. Smith, Alan Wong, John V. Hanna (Department of Physics, University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7Al, UK), Bernard Barry (Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, Lower Hutt, New Zealand) and Michel W. Barsoum (Department of Materials Science …

Error or forgery on the Stele of Merneptah, known as Israel Stele

The objectives of this article are twofold. First of all, it presents one information omitted in Chapter 11 of my last book in French language De cette fresque naquit la Bible (The Lost Fresco and the Bible ). Then, it denounces an error, or more probably the forgery of an archaeological document of the greatest importance.

The stele of Merneptah contains the oldest mention of Israel in an extra-biblical document. Flinders Petrie discovered it in 1896, at Thebes, Egypt, in Merneptah’s mortuary temple. Merneptah …

The Lost Fresco and the Bible (my new book in French)

I am presenting my 5th book on the Egyptian civilization, here in connection with the Bible, published by Éditions Jean-Cyrille Godefroy, Paris, ISBN 978-2-86553-216-2

Released on: 29 september 2009

In 1935 in Karnak, in Egypt, two French Egyptologists discover a fresco in the ruins of the memorial temple of Amenophis (Amenhotep) Son of Hapu, the most eminent scribe and scientist of ancient Egypt, Great chancellor of the Pharaon Amenhotep III, father of the monotheist Pharaon Akhenaton. Recently, 75 years later, I noted that the text of this fresco was reproduced word for word in the Bible, Genesis 41, when …

The Pyramids in Bosnia (Europe), man-made stone or Roman concrete

From the photos available, the stone material seems to be natural pudding stone or perhaps man-made stone, a type of Roman concrete, called Opus Caementium. I am waiting for more data.

According to our information, we believe that the sample of concrete that I have examined under the electron microscope comes from a type of cistern or water tank (the drilling report is mentioning a concrete “ceiling” and an empty space of 4 meters depth followed by a “concrete” floor, see the pdf below). The geopolymer concrete analyzed is a kind of Roman concrete, which …

Film/TV documentary proposal on Egypt

I have an interesting Film/TV documentary project, and I am looking for a serious producer.

I discovered the most ancient genuine text copied word by word in the Bible.

It is an ancient Egyptian fresco unearthed in 1935, in Karnak, Southern Egypt, dedicated to the greatest scribe and genius of Egyptian antiquity: Amenophis (Amenhotep) Son of Hapu (1437-1356 BC).




This 3,363 year-old document tells how Pharaoh Amenhotep III (the father of the heretical Akhenaton) greatly honored his closest counselor, Amenophis Son of Hapu, Egypt’s foremost éminence grise whose position was second only to Pharaoh’s in power. According to my recent …

3D computer simulation is not scientific proof

Recently, worldwide medias reported following headline news: “on March 30, 2007, Dassault Systems, one of the first world editors of 3D computer solutions, and architect Jean-Pierre Houdin, reveal the first theory devoted to the construction of the pyramid of Cheops that is scientifically validated, during a news conference presented at the Géode, City of Sciences, Paris ”.

One reads here clearly that 3D computer simulation has scientifically validated this theory of pyramid construction. The system introduces the use of internal ramps, instead of the external ramps previously suggested by Egyptologists. It is common knowledge that a computer works with …

25 years ago in the New York Times

Walter Sullivan, science editor and writer at the New York Times, was the first English speaking journalist to write that the Egyptian pyramids may have been cast from plastic rock instead of being hewn. I have been attending the International Archaeometry Symposium, held at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island from May 18 to May 22, 1981. W. Sullivan covered the symposium and wrote a paper that was published in the Sunday edition of the New York Times, Sunday, May 24., 1981, page 39. I was just starting my archaeological research and the reader will certainly discover how this theory …

Czech Institute of Egyptology

Prague, June 15, 2006

Continuing my visits to the Czech scientific institutions, I met with Professor Miroslav Verner, professor of egyptology, director of the Czech Institute of Egyptology. The Czech Mission in Egypt is in charge of the site at Abusir, north of Saqqarah. One finds there the pyramids of the Pharaons belonging to the Vth Dynasty, small pyramids built after the large pyramids at Giza. They were made with small blocks of hewn stone and they have nothing in common with the enormous masses raised by the Pharaons of the IVth Dynasty: Sneferu, Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinos.

The first …

Encounter with the Venus from Dolni Vestonice, a 25.000 years old geopolymer ceramic

Brno, capital of Moravia, Czech Republic, 17 June 2006

Organized within the framework of my meetings with the scientific institutions of the Czech Republic, this visit to the Brno Anthropology Museum will certainly mark a date in my studies on the technological knowledge of prehistoric mankind. Dr. Martin Oliva, paleontologist, presented to me the collection of Paleolithic artifacts – engraved bones – discovered in Moravia, in particular at Dolni Vestonice. Then, in the presence of the journalist of the local national daily and a photographer of Czech Press Agency, he unveiled the queen of his collection, the Venus. I still …

How not to date a pyramid stone !

On July 15, 2005, I received the following e-mail from Holland:

Dear dr. Davidovits, I am a journalist of the Dutch leading newspaper de Volkskrant and I am doing an article on the building of the Cheops pyramid. Dr. Menno Blaauw of the Technische Universiteit Delft says he analyzed a piece of stone from Cheops and concluded that it is natural limestone, not a piece of concrete. His main argument is that the inside of the stone has not seen daylight for at least 400 thousand years. Since you are the designer of the concrete-theory, I would appreciate a comment
