also what were there uses? no bodies were ever found in them, so they couldn't have been a tomb. isn't it also weird they were built in the centre of land mass on earth (not the centre of earth as clearly it's a globe so everywhere is the cen

Answers:

There is a plethora of archaeological and contemporary document evidence for building of the pyramids;ramps were used to move the blocks up to the levels required for construction.

With good organization,a large work force,a sufficiently long time scale (such as a Pharaoh's lifetime) and the required knowledge of maths - all of which the ancient Egyptians had - such large scale projects were eminently possible.

Nonsense.

You've chosen to ignore the dozens of tutorials on the construction in favor of one crank video.

No, it isn't on the "center" of land.

Your lack of knowledge is impressive.

Boy are you behind the times, even in the 1970's there were PBS shows that had people move those heavy stone blocks by people power. They were blocks, not bricks. Look around online, there's documentation for that, and how the blocks for Stonehenge were moved.

They are made of sandstone, and covered in limestone. There are chambers within the pyramids, but no bodies were found. Exactly how they were built is conjecture, but the technology needed was available, primitive but clearly effective. It is thought to have provided employment to farmers when the land was inundated, rather than the slave labor traditionally suggested.

The pyramids in Egypt, and in Mexico and other parts of the Americas, are (almost all of them) made of large stones, each weighing a ton or more (thus much, much bigger than bricks!). In Egypt it is fairly certain that the stones were pushed up ramps built on the outsides the pyramids, pushed by large teams of men.

Oh, do grow up, you stupid credulous little child.

They were all clearly naturally occurring geological formations, which accounts for the crystalline shape. Primitive peoples living near the Nile assumed they must have been built in very ancient days by 'Gods' with dogs heads, birds beaks etc. which they gave names to. Inevitably their leaders grew powerful over the centuries and dug tunnels into these monoliths, choosing to live and reign from there and calling themselves 'Pharoahs'.

The Pyramids of Egypt
Of the “Seven Wonders” of the ancient world, only the Egyptian pyramids stand today. Most important are the three situated at Giza, on the west bank of the Nile River near Cairo. They are mammoth tombs built for certain pharaohs. The first and largest was the Great Pyramid. This gigantic tomb of Pharaoh Cheops (Khufu) was expected to be a secure place for the king’s remains and the treasures buried with them.
Covering an area of thirteen acres, the Great Pyramid has a square base and triangular sides, each facing one of the four points of the compass. This pyramid is 482 feet high and was constructed with 2,300,000 individual stones. These stones range in weight up to 5,000 pounds each! How were such huge stones quarried, transported and put in place? This cannot be said with certainty. But it has been concluded that a labor force of some 100,000 men toiled for twenty years to complete the Great Pyramid.
Why were the pyramids built? Well, the ancient Egyptians believed in life after death. But if the soul was to live on, they thought that a person’s fleshly body had to be preserved. So, they embalmed their dead. Moreover, valuables were buried with the deceased for his use in the spirit world. No wonder some pharaohs built gigantic, seemingly impenetrable tombs!

Big blocks are hard to move but sand is easy to move to form ramps and the blocks can be moved on rollers to get them up the ramps. And, yes, they WERE designed as tombs and bodies WERE found there.
