@HistoryChannel fact checking

I am watching Ancient Aliens: Chariots, Gods & Beyond. One of the sceptics/supporters of the alien technology theory, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, claimed that building the Great Pyramid of Giza in 22 years would require placing a block “EVERY 9 SECONDS”.

Does History not do ANY basic fact checking anymore? Even using the commonly quoted number of blocks, 2.3 million, the time is 301 seconds per block, slightly over 5 MINUTES. This is not even close to the 9 seconds.

Now, using another, probably more accurate, estimate of the number of blocks, 590,712, the time per block jumps to 19.5 minutes per block.

These numbers are from here: http://www.world-mysteries.com/mpl_2.htm

It took me all of about 30 seconds to find this. History, you are supposed to present interesting, BUT TRUTHFUL, stories. I’m not saying aliens haven’t been to Earth. I’m just saying you have to weed out information that is very obviously false.
