The fake History of Cairo-Babylon

They say Ancient Egypt was a civilization along the Nile river that began around 3100 BC (5000 years ago) and ended 1100 BC. Lasting 2000 years, it brought forth the Great Pyramids of Giza and other marvels. This you learn in school, on TV, in Encyclopedias. The History is considered settled. Settled means the subject is closed, no longer open for questioning. It’s been solved long ago.

In an earlier article, I proposed ancient Rome didn’t exist. Now I’d like to offer that ancient Egypt didn’t exist.

At least not as a distinct entity. Things that make it “distinct”, such as the Pyramids, can also be found elsewhere – in Iraq, India and as far away as Mexico and Peru, just to name a few. I’m also claiming that its events played out much more recently – within the last 1000 years. I hope to prove to you that the “Great Pyramids” did not exist more than 1000 years ago. 

A few months ago a map, dated 1536, caught my attention:


The title of this beautiful map, speaks of Cairo and Babylon.

The legendary Babylon? In Egypt?I thought it was in Iraq/Mesopotamia? Or maybe Babylon was a larger Empire that included both?

Old Maps have a country called Babilonia in Iraq (from Ralph Waldseemuellers 1507 Mappa Mundi):

And a city called Babilionia in Egypt:

Interesting that an Empire, said to have gone extinct thousands of years ago, is found on maps from 500 years ago.

In the map of ancient Cairo-Babylon, we see twelve great Pyramids (representing 12 planets?), not just the three we know. They were built atop flattened hills (some would say giant tree stumps).

In my book Extraterrestrial Linguistics I said the word Pyramid means either “Fire-avoidance” (ancient German Pyra-meid) or “Fire Center” (Pyra-Med). The building atop hills fits the description. Bottom right we see a Sphinx, perched atop one of the flattened hills.

I checked on Wikipedia’s page for “Babylon”, but found no mention whatsoever of Babylon Egypt or Babylon Cairo (as of the date of this writing). But Cairo = Babylon old maps, without exception:

On this incredibly old 1442 map, there is a large city on the Nile, labeled “Babilonia”, instead of Cairo.



The same map also shows a Babilonia in Iraq. There were definitely two Babilonias, but History is oddly quiet about the one in Cairo.

This is the lower right quarter of a larger 1600 map of Cairo:

The last sentence on this map says “Das gewaltige Reich von Babylonia”, German for  “The powerful Kingdom of Babylonia”. A powerful Kingdom is likely not limited to one city. What if this was the Capital of Babylon and Mesopotamia an outpost?

The upper right quarter:

The city here is labeled “Bab” and there’s an area beside the Pyramids labeled “Memphis”.

The map below is from 1890. Here, in this late map, the town across from the Giza Pyramids is called “Babylon”.

Close up:

Over time, the definition of “Babylon” gets smaller until it’s only a small town across from Giza. Soon thereafter, it disappears from maps.

A french map of the 1800s also calls the town across from Giza Babylon:

It’s mind-boggling to me that the exact location of the “mythical” Babylon was on regular maps until the late 1800s. 

This is an 1170 map of Cairo, drawn by the Muslims who occupied the city at the time:

Notice anything? There are no Pyramids!

Of course this doesn’t prove there were no Pyramids 1170. They could have been omitted for religious or other reasons. Even so, it’s strange to have a map of Cairo and the Nile but no mention at all of the most dominant features in the landscape.

I’ll present more evidence further down. Yes, we’ve been told they existed 6000 years ago. In my books I speculate they were built 12 000 years ago or even further back. But maybe I and countless others were wrong.

On this map, anywhere there’s a gate, we find the word “Bab”. Bab-el-Kantara, Bab-el-Futuh, etc. The “el” is arabic for “the” or “of the”. Bab-el-on then, probably means “gated city”. I didn’t bother looking up the official translation, this is purely from viewing the map. Perhaps any gated city could be referred to as Bab-el-on. The German word for Babylon, even today, is still Babel. In the South of this map we see “Castle of Babylon”.

If Bab-El simply means gated city, then the whole world could have been Bab-El, as we find enclosed and fortified cities everywhere.

The map below is from 1720, drawn by Paul Lucas. It’s a real gem…one of those items the history-fakers forgot to remove.  Yale University carries a higher-resolution copy of it online, but it’s not downloadable.

Some close-ups:

This tower is one of those anomalous light-generating devices we see across so many drawings from the 1700s. The ancients had a method of generating energy that is lost to us today (as I’ve shown elsewhere).

This is probably not the legendary “Lighthouse of Alexandria” if that’s what your thinking. The lighthouse was said to have been destroyed in the 1300s and also described in a different shape.

We see seven Pyramids and two Sphinxes. One of the Sphinxes appears to be half-buried, the other is out in the open. Apart from the sanded area around the Pyramids, Cairo is more green and fertile than today. By 1720, the structures are no longer atop hills, as they were in the 1500s.

Further South we see gigantic waterfalls, along with more Pyramids. Or is it an artificial Dam? It’s south of the Tropic of Cancer, south of Naasfa (today’s Lake Nasser?), probably where we find today’s “Abu Simbel”.

Below the town Alfuanna we see the word “zerstoert”, which is German for “destroyed”.

The Latin title of this image is something like “New furnace is the Miracle of Egypt”.

This text says something about there being a “meat miracle” (fileat miracula) with the barbarian pyramids (barbara pyramidum) that the whole world is benefiting from. It also says something about eggs and a “new technique”  and how this “great miracle of Cairo” needs to be told to everyone.

So the Pyramids are here understood to have been built by “the Barbarians” and are now being repurposed for some kind of miraculous furnace. Remarkable! It lends weight to all the theories about Pyramids being energy-generators of some kind (including my own assertion that it’s to do with Fire/Pyra/Pyro).

The towers of Babylon, across from the Pyramids:

We see many towns on the map that are built as “star forts”, including Luxor:

Like on so many old maps the town-names reveal things outside of the official History narrative. Some of them sound turkish, such as Bujuk Serhad, through Ottoman influence. There’s also some French in Arifclaux, Benesueff and Lovedi. The towns Schecksquiffe, Eschaffe and Kerkoffi sound ancient German. Why?


The bottom image appears to have something to do with mummification. There’s a statue of a woman with a sun engraved on her chest, a pentagram, a guy worshipping a bird.

The Pyramids being so very ancient and unique, you’d think they’d be featured across medieval paintings, but there are none.  The very earliest pictorial evidence I found of the Pyramids in Cairo are on this 1513 map by the Turkish explorer Piri Reis:

We also see here a gigantic aqueduct system between the Nile and fortified Cairo.

Type “Medieval Paintings of Giza” or “Medieval Paintings of Pyramid” into a search-engine and it brings up nothing. We have medieval paintings of cathedrals, town squares, cities, but not of the Pyramids.

Again, that’s no proof of anything. Just because I’m unable to find something, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Even so, it’s highly unusual that a search comes up empty. It’s not something I expected.

Also: Go the the Wikipedia page Egypt in the Middle Ages. Word-Search for “Pyramid” or “Giza”. You’ll find nothing (at the time of this writing). Isn’t it strange? It’s the most prominent structure in the country, eve the “wonder of the world” and yet, there’s no mention of it. Medieval Egypt is all about the Muslim dynasties that ruled the country. There is no exploration of Giza, no expedition to it, no defense of it, no attempted destruction of it, no discussion about it. If it had existed, wouldn’t there be medieval drawings and stories about it?

Not even the Torah, Bible or Quran – which deal with the middle east, mention the Pyramids. These holy books mention Egypt many times but never the Pyramids. .

In the Quran it says this about ancient Egypt:

And Pharaoh said to his people: “I have not known a god for you other than myself; so Haman, light me a fire to bake clay so that I could build a rise high enough, maybe I see Moses’ god whom I think is a liar.”

Quran 28:38

Knowing that the Giza Plateau may have been Bab-el, let’s re-read the story in the Bible:

On reddit, a Historian summarized what he found, which is sparse. Quoting parts of the write-up:

In the 15th century, the historian al-Maqrizi mentioned the attempt by the Ayyubid sultan al-Aziz to destroy the smallest of the pyramids, the Pyramid of Menkaure, in 1196.

So by the 12th century, some people believed the pyramids were full of treasure

The Historian takes this to mean the pyramids were known in the 1100s. But all it really means is that someone talked about them in the 15th century, referencing something that supposedly happened in the 1100s.

The European crusaders who were present in the Levant in the 12th and 13th centuries never really mention the pyramids, for some reason. The crusaders invaded Egypt in 1168 and even camped near Giza so they obviously saw the pyramids, but the only possible reference to them at the time are the “evidences of bygone grandeur” (William of Tyre, vol. 2, pg. 316)

This strongly supports my idea that there was nothing there. If you’re camping at Giza and don’t mention the Pyramids, they are either buried under sand or don’t exist.

This invasion was actually what caused Egypt to fall to Saladin. A few years later, Saladin sent ambassadors to the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I and Frederick sent his own ambassadors to Egypt in 1175. The ambassadors reported that

“…a mile out into the desert there are two mountains, artificially constructed with admirable workmanship from great blocks of marble and other square blocks of stone, a bowshot distant from each other, each of the same width, height and number of blocks. Both are the width of a very strong bowshot and have the height of two of these.” (Arnold of Lubeck, pg. 275)

Here’s an idea: What if the Crusaders (Knights Templar) built them a few years before? The few alleged references to the Pyramids begin after the 1100s.

Around the same time, the Spanish Muslim pilgrim Ibn Jubayr visited:

“…the ancient pyramids, of miraculous construction and wonderful to look upon, four-sided, like huge pavilions reaching into the skies; two in particular choke the firmament. The length of one of them from one angle to another is three hundred and sixty~six paces. They have been built with immense hewn rocks, arranged above each other in an awesome fashion and wonderfully jointed having nothing between them that (like cement) would serve to bind them. Their tips seem to the eye to be pointed, but it may be that the ascent to them is possible with danger and difficulty, and that their pointed tops may be found to be broad and level. If men sought to tear them down they must fail….” (Ibn Jubayr, pg. 45-46)

Neither the German ambassadors or Ibn Jubayr mention who built the pyramids, but another Spanish traveller, the Jewish pilgrim Benjamin of Tudela, calls them the “granaries of Joseph.” 

In the 14th century, Marino Sanudo wrote about the feasibility of attacking Egypt from Europe and noted that

“…there are some triangular pyramids, very high, which are said to have been the granaries of Joseph” (Marino Sanudo, pg. 415)

If they are the granaries of Joseph, then the Pharao built them to store grains after Joseph had predicted famine. In any case, evidence of the Pyramids existence before the 1500s is scarce and non-existent before the 1100s (with the exception of “Roman” and “Greek” Sources, which we’ll get discuss further down).

A 1676 drawing by Anastasius Kircher, based not on his own visitation but on what he was told:

We see people climbing down into a subterranean world below the Pyramids (I’ve mentioned subterranean tunnels under Pyramids in my books). Not sure what’s going on there. On the left we see a compass inside a square. There’s a large chest or casket behind it.

I decided to see how far back I could find drawings or paintings of the Sphinx (apart from the 1536 map). The very earliest I found was dated to 1610, a drawing by George Sandys:

We see what the face of the Sphinx looked like before nose and lips were vandalized.

Again: Why do I find nothing earlier for such an iconic structure?

From 1744 by M. Tuscher. Nose and lips are still intact. Just like in 1610, the Sphinx is mostly buried.

Here’s from 1760.

We see at least seven Pyramids and two sphinxes, neither buried.

Louis Francois Cassas drew this Sphinx in 1790:

Most of it is buried.

This engraving is by Viviant Denon, 1798:

Notice the person climbing out of the head of the Sphinx. There are many tales of there being an entrance at the top of the head. There’s even photographic evidence for this (shown further below). From Wikipedia: “Johann Helffrich visited the Sphinx during his travels in 1565–1566. He describes that a priest went into the head of the Sphinx, and when he spoke it was as if the Sphinx itself was speaking”. Émile Baraize closed the hole with a metal hatch in 1926.”

We, the public, have yet to receive an explanation why it was closed in 1926 and why 99.9% of people aren’t even told there’s an entrance.

An 1823 etching with face and nose apparently still intract but the body fully buried:

Isodore Taylor made this painting in 1830. Again, nose and mouth are intact but the body is partially buried:

Otto Baron Howen made this one in 1830:

Then in 1840 we suddenly find the nose chopped off, in this painting by David Bates:

By this time the Sphinx is partially dug out.

Does that tell us that it was vandalized some time between 1830 and 1840? I think so.

A photograph from the 1850s:

And this photo, from 1920 shows the Sphinx with the opening at the top of the head:

This is a map from 1154 called Tabula Rogeriana. It’s a real gem, showing what I consider pre-flood days, when the earth looked different. There is no doubt in my mind, about the map’s accuracy because many places listed here, still exist today. I’m showing you the map upside down, for the sake of familiarity:

We see that North Africa and Arabia haven’t changed much, Spain and Portugal are roughly the same. But Central Europe is different.  The red sea is also very differen, it used to be a very large body of water that reached all the way to China. This is consistent with other pre-flood maps.

The map shows the legendary “Lighthouse of Alexandria” in Egypt, but it makes no reference or mention of any Pyramids. It doesn’t even show Cairo. The relevant part (upside down, from our perspective):

We see “Al Iskanderia” (Al-exandria) and the great lighthouse. We see places like Tantana which still exists today, north of Cairo as Tanta and we see Sul which still existed in the 1700s at the exactly same spot. But we do not see Cairo or Babilonia. The earliest mention of Cairo I found, was the 1170 map shown earlier.

This map agrees with my estimate (in earlier articles) that the “Great Flood” that changed the face of the earth, happened some time between 1235 and 1252. The ancients say Babylon arose some time after the Great Flood.

I also found no indication of Bab-el in Iraq. At around the center-right of the map you see “Al Basra”, which still exists today in Iraq. North of it (South on this map) you see Bagdad and realize, surely with fascination, just how old some of these places are. But there is no hint of Babil (which it is called today).

I found things on this map that are explosive, but I’ll have to leave those for another time.

The only problem with my theory is that ancient Roman and Greek authors reference the Pyramids and Ancient Egypt.

But a close look reveals that the “many” Romans and Greeks who wrote about it, actually copied from very few people. The Greeks copied from Herodotus. And the Romans copied from Pliny the Elder. If these people were real and not recent fabrications and if their accounts were honest, then my whole theory falls apart. But Pliny the Elder only became known in the 1600s. Before that, there is no reference of a “Roman” by that name. His writings just suddenly turned up. To me, that means Pliny the Elder may have been a fabrication, crafted by people the 1600s. And Herodotus? This Historian suddenly turns up in the 1100s, in the Byzantine Encyclopedia called Suda. Before that, there is no evidence of him. So for thousands of years nobody knows these people and then they suddenly appear, fairly recently, with volumes about ancient History. Hmmm…

Apart from there being no pictorial evidence of the Pyramids, there is also not a single ancient Egyptian hieroglyph or story that references the Pyramids! Most people don’t even know this. They just assume the Pyramids are mentioned in Egyptian texts. The ancient Egyptians themselves make no mention of them. The most visible and marvellous feature isn’t even worth a footnote. How is that possible? Nor is there a single text or image that talks about or shows how they were designed or constructed.

Let’s recap:

  1. Maps older than 1500s don’t show them.
  2. Medieval Histories of Egypt don’t mention them.
  3. The Crusaders didn’t mention them.
  4. Paintings and Drawings before 1500s don’t show them.
  5. The Torah, Bible and Quran don’t mention them.
  6. The only proof of their ancient-ness are alleged reports by very few Romans and Greeks whose writings miraculously appeared in the 1600s.

Based on everything I’ve seen so far, I suspect the Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilization were one global Empire, not three different ones and not set apart in time. I asked a colleague what he associates with Greek civilization. “Temples with Pillars” he said. But the Romans also had those. The Egyptians too. And the Sumerians. And Aztecs. And Incas. This global empire was pre-flood. It was destroyed a thousand years ago. Maybe they tried to rebuild the Empire a few times, but it kept getting destroyed.
