I am an Author/Journalist and Youtuber in Ancient Mysteries
You might like to 'check out my book', "In Search of the Origin of Pyramids", (available on Amazon!) which describes the INTENDED PURPOSE of the three Giza Pyramids: Trinity Worship, Trinity is a Stone-age religion, later used by the Romans and the Catholic religion. They are not 'tombs'. "Official" Egyptian pyramid archaeology is WRONG.
Want to learn about the COMMON ORIGINAL RELIGION OF MANKIND?? represented at Giza and many other pyramid complexes...
Look no further....because..
In Search of the Origin of Pyramids and the Lost Gods of Giza, is the #1 book on the Worldwide Pyramid Phenomenon! Explaining Everything! It is the best book on Worldwide Pyramids, since the pyramids!
This, has not been suitably explained, and is not as simple as we think it to be. I was determined to find what it was all about...!
The gist of the book is to prove that Giza represents a temple from an "older" civilization than can be represented by mere "Egyptian Gods"... The Civilization of the Giza pyramids were uninterested in "masses of Egyptian inscriptions." They had religious ideas which were partly a hybrid of "Old Europe's" religious ideas, deriving from the Vinca, with other African, Asian and indigenous ideas.
The number THREE is "very special" at Giza, including the use of three `queens'(?) pyramids each for the Khufu and Menkaura pyramids. The Three Giza Pyramids are possibly or even likely a representation of the neolithic Triple Goddess, also known as the Great Goddess. She was responsible for the triple attributes of Birth, Death, and Ressurection, with each pyramid as a different aspect. She assisted in childbirth and fertility = TRINITY WORSHIP, which the Latin/Greek/Levant religions inherited and introduced into Christianity. In this way, Rome represesents a Successor-city to Giza, as capital of the Trinity Religion in Europe!
The cult which remained at Giza became the cult of the Goddess Isis, by Roman times. Goddess Isis became the major deity of Giza, deriving from the Stone-Age. There was an earlier 'Triple Goddess' whose name we do not know.
Everyone "knows" the pyramids are not really burial chambers.. but 'at least' something 'more', They actually seem to be permanent resting places of the gods and their goddess consorts, built to center them in Egypt, forever. It 'forces' them (as above so below) to reside in Egypt, perhaps in competition with other less-spectacular mounds found elsewhere, and provide fertility for all the land. A comprehensive mythology exists describing helpful gods resting forever in mounds, or under the ground, from Buddha to Merlin. The lost tombs of the Egyptian Kings would however be located nearby. This explains the 'paradox' of no burials in any Egyptian pyramid, and in other huge pyramids and mounds around the world.
As pointed out by Robert Temple, the Sphinx was originally probably a dog in form: (a good clue!) favourite and inseparable animal of the Triple Goddess! The extinction time of this Old Religion around 2500 BC in Europe corresponds to the decline in pyramid building, (worldwide and in Egypt) after the third millennium BC. Interesting coincidence?
The Khufu dynasty, who possibly came from Khazakstan, were possibly inheritors of some form of "Eurasian mound worship". Herodotus points out that Khufu did not approve of the Egyptian Gods. (He hated them) Menkaura, the final worker on the site of Giza, supposedly reverted to the Egyptian gods, and in fact he left his component of the work at Giza incomplete.
Conclusion: Giza is... TRINITY WORSHIP. That is, a triple temple and home of the fertility Triple Goddess, Stone Age deity, same as fertility mounds in Eurasia! The tombs-for-kings theory presumably arose because it took each pyramid a king's lifetime to build!
The REAL solution to the Worldwide Pyramid Problem, and also the COMMON LOST... RELIGION OF MANKIND, which also, like Christianity, but long before, worshipped a 'holy trinity'!
Putting this all together, it suggests an EARLIER, LOST CIVILIZATION which is unknown, (but we can speculate), which PRECEDED Egypt, from where the pyramid builders migrated! This is also the earlier origin of Christianity, Yahweh. It is the religion of Babel.
Ok, so why are current theories about pyramids wrong?
Exhibit A: Current Giza theories are insular and incomplete, ignoring tribal migrations and the nearby Eurasian religion of the Indo-Europeans and (not so near) Amerindians, great mound and pyramid builders with something unknown in common
I agonised for a while over the title, eventually deciding that this was the most appropriate one for the book's content. It was while travelling in foreign countries that I noticed that something was horribly, terribly wrong about our interpretation over what pyramids were, to ancient people. I wanted to come up with my own definition, which would satisfy me, ticking off all the relevant criterea. Some of these existing pyramid interpretations are all rather insular, basically ignoring some clearly related evidence from `outside' a specific culture. What are cultures anyway, and how do they develop? What makes them change?
Exhibit B: Current Giza theories "ignore" pyramid ritual and mound lore from outside Egypt
Archaeologists obsess over 'pyramid texts', as if these explain the origin of pyramids! They do not! They are all from 5th dynasty pyramids! The really good stuff is in the fourth dynasty and they "DISRESPECTED" Egyptian Gods, yet built the biggest pyramids! Useful as such documents are, they do not explain the significance of Giza.
The book contains various fascinating theories, not previously expounded, which I hope will shake up the foundations of a few established ideas, (and even the foundations of some new and radical ideas regarding pyramids, worldwide, though it complements several of them quite well!) which I feel do not take into consideration the realistic widespread diffusion of stone-age peoples, and their cultures. This is a neglected key to understanding the worldwide pyramid phenomenon. The increasing awareness, by the 1990s, that almost all stone-age cultures built pyramids, was one of the sensations of the century, relegated to obscure publications due to the interdisciplinary nature of the approach required to tackle the problem. Pyramids are not originally of what we now know of the Egyptian religion. The idea was brought from elsewhere, subsequently integrated. Of course, when Egyptologists were researching pyramids 100 years ago, they were not aware of how worldwide pyramids really were.
Egyptologists have tried, for instance, to understand pyramids in terms of the Egyptian religion. This is rather difficult undertaking, and there is not a lot to draw upon. They talk about the "Horus" King becoming an "Osiris" to look after Egypt forever (fertility), yet "Ignore" the shape of the pyramids, their tremedous size, the fact they are the size of hills or mountains, etc. Then we must consider that pyramids were being built at the same time over in Sumer (Iraq), whose people had a whole host of very different deities to worship. Ziggurats were being built for instance, for the worship of a moon goddess, unknown in Egypt. Highly specialised books dedicated to Egyptian pyramids tend to neglect parallel developments over in Sumer, and elsewhere. Clearly we seem to be dealing with a mysterious religion which sprang up, in an unknown place, well before the dawn of Egyptian, and Sumerian history.
Exhibit C: Top Giza theorists such as Hawass and Lehner are aware of solar and resurrection worship at Giza
... but are unable to elaborate in any significant detail about the pyramid religion itself! Instead, many concentrate upon the mummification ritual, even if we are not aware of any human burials in pyramids. What we see in Egypt, Sumer and elsewhere, are but the remnant vestiges of this earlier understanding, mixed with native cultural, intellectual and religious ideas, which provided the independence necessary for each culture to formulate their own engineering techniques, worship centers, and general ideas of what a pyramid should look like, and what function they are supposed to have performed. Ergo... the pyramids "CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD BY EGYPTOLOGY".

In my book, I have come to a conclusion which satisfies myself regarding what is going on at Giza, and it fits in with what we know about other primordial mythologies, outside of Egypt, where pyramids were built.
Egyptian pyramids are the local version of a mound cult which spanned Ireland to Brazil.
The Giza pyramids are the latest and greatest structures on their site, but not the first.
The Giza pyramids are the "last desperate cry" of a 'trinity cult' which was vanishing even while they were being built.
The Sphinx represents a dog and its cult was becoming extinct elsewhere by the time the Pyramids were built, to be replaced by the lion.
The Three Giza pyramids are a temple to the three time-dependent aspects of the Neolithic Triple Goddess. The dog (the Sphinx) was her consort. She was there to assist the dead with resurrection, as well as to protect fertility in Egypt, promoting stability.
The Kings are presumably buried on site, possibly in the adjoining royal mastaba cemetary. This resolves the paradox of two types of burial at the same time, pyramid and mastaba. Khufu may have been buried in a nearby shaft, as suggested by Herodotus.
I would hope that my book goes a little way towards providing a new foundation, for future work, towards what pyramids were really perhaps all about, originally anyway, or at least one of the major reasons for their construction. The aim is to establish the notion of migratory hunter gatherers, moving around and settling down before the dawn of history, in about 3100 BC. These proto-agricultural people had not quite done with their migratory ways. Huge climatic changes between the end of the Ice Age and the dawn of history, and subsequent movements, forced the design of pyramids according to varying ideologies, but with environmental and material limitations.
Naturally, I try to investigate the old gods of this period, approximately 6000-3000 BC, from whatever anthropological material is available, and suggest which gods were worshipped in possible pyramid ceremonies, when, and why.
I hope you will enjoy reading my book. I have certainly put a lot of work into it.

Check out my Youtube Channel, where I run a program called 'Ancient Mystery'! I just love making vids about ancient mysteries! As of 8/Aug/17, 10800 subscribers and 2.6 million views!
The show is all about the lost hyper-civilization, and anything really which is an ancient mystery! This Old Earth, of 120k to 60k years ago, have been populated by the Nephilim and others known to the Ancient Egyptians as the 'DemiGods', presumably because of their god-like technologies! I have proven in my vids that the further back in time you go in Egypt, the more advanced the technology becomes... the outside of pyramids is up to 1000 years older than the interior of pyramids... and more... much more. SUB For important future updates! (As i'm going for the silver play button... AND It's just packed with info about ancient mysteries that you won't find any place else, Guaranteed!)
P.S. I now have a Patreon which is now my main BLOG, which discusses latest developments in archaeology, and why what we think we know is usually actually the reverse.
Name: Charles Kos. Jobs: Author (of the 'Best Book Ever' on the Worldwide Pyramid Phenomenon), publisher, historian, tourism entrepreneur. I completed a PhD, Remembering the Outlaw in Medieval England: The emegence of the Robin Hood legend, was accepted in July 2014. It basically identifies a point of origin for the Robin Hood mythology, in terms of a historical character, who might be termed an early 'Robin Hood.' In my 20s, I have run in two local council elections, including notable gains against an incumbent mayor, while finishing several university degrees. In my 30s, I run two successful businesses, (so far!) including a fun-oriented historical tour business, trying to bring history to life for tourists, in an enthusiastic manner: Red Coat Tours Always looking out for a fun challenge, I have also started a book publisher, under which I published my first title, for those interested in getting their work 'out there', which may concentrate upon historical, or obsolete titles. Plus Ultra Books!
Wanting to get to the bottom of the 'Giza mystery,' I have very proudly written my 'magnum opus', the 'last word' on Egyptian pyramids, (possbily the best book out there on worldwide pyramids) but also a first word in a new field. Here is why. In Search of the Origin of Pyramids and the Lost Gods of Giza, basically proves, via weight of evidence, that the Giza pyramids are more likely to be a representation of the 'Holy Trinity' triple aspect of the far older Neolithic Triple Goddess, built and improved over three generations of rulers, rather than large tombs for three kings. (mistakenly believed to be the internal pyramid chambers in which case they would not actually accord with Old-Kingdom burial practice).
Hobbies: I have always been been very much into History (Robin Hood!) and ancient history, as well as mysteries. (ancient and modern) A major hobby is writing and reading, as well as playing music. I enjoy fiddling with the telescope to look at planets sometimes (but not for a while!), microscope and real life Ancient-Egyptian Alchemy, (cement making, playing with natron salt) without the `magical' bits. (This was my hobby last year, 2015!) I have sometimes been described as having: 'Red Bull instead of Blood', and my personal motto is every day 'be a champion, in one or more things, push yourself to a new accomplishment'.
Me standing with Medb's tomb in a remote part of Ireland, mid 2014. Absolutely remarkable! An 11 meter high `pyramid' on top of a mountain. I was struck by a similarity with the Bible quote about needing to build a tower close to God. What's the old `Babel' religion doing in Ireland? It turns out that rather than a scenario of diffusion of myth from the Middle East, the Bible somehow intercepted, recorded and interpreted Stone-Age Eurasian myth, lost elsewhere.
Hill of Tara, eat your heart out! This is the real deal right here, and not another tourist in sight! I am at the Stone-Age wonderland of Knocknarea in a remote and mythological part of Ireland. I was so taken with the similarities on this plateau, with what is going on at Giza, that I decided to research and write a book on the origin of pyramids. This was in order to get to the bottom of the pyramid mystery. It is entitled `In Search of the Origin of Pyramids, and the Lost Gods of Giza.'It contains some very startling conclusions. (See Below!)
Me at my graduation, 2014. This was the best day of my life! All us Phds sat up on stage during the graduation, in pride of place!
Me, circa 2012, in my version of an Indy hat. I used to wear this for photos due to my losing hair. Of course you walk into remote villages wearing this and people stare quite a lot.
Me in 2014, Exploring a stone-age tomb at Bru na Brinne, Ireland. The tomb dates from about 3200 BC. Ireland is jam-packed with absolutely fascinating people, and fascinating tourists.
Many ruined monasteries have these little `secret areas' where the curators stow away all the old bits and pieces! Sometimes these are from the previous religious structure and can surprisingly include ancient gods and dark-ages depictions of religion.
Any Questions... anything at all?
Contact would be much appreciated!

In this article, I explain my theory of the UFO phenomenon as a kind of natural ball lightning, with astronomy analogy. The implications are that ball lightnings, (larger versions resemble many UFOs, are subsets of stellar phenomena, according to the Plasma Cosmological Model (Hans Alfven, Nobel Prize physics: 1970) There is an ascending energy ladder operating in the universe, similar objects, none of them totally understood: which we can mathematically scale upwards: similar phenomena, ghost orb, ball lightning, UFO, planet (under our crust), Star.
A main interest, apart from family, friends and hobbies, is doing research, in a few different areas. I love to discover new things written in diverse books, and then correlate the information. There is so much that we do not know, in every field, because people have not had the time to research and make discoveries. Time is far more precious than money. Lack of time leads to lack of discovery.
There are so many ancient-mysteries authors out there who have an inkling that there is more to be discovered regarding our magnificent world, that we are not aware of the whole story. They are, obviously, right. I would love to contribute to this field, but to do so in a way which contributes new information and awareness of our deeply ancient and remarkable past.
