In addition to pyramidology, Joseph Seiss was once a Christian dispensationalist, a nineteenth century millennialist tuition of suggestion. The dispensationalists seen human background as a chain of covenants with God. They have been sure that the tip of days can be pinpointed utilizing Biblical prophecy. This used to be the starting place of a collection of ideals extensively permitted by way of modern evangelical Christians.
Seiss advances many doubtful assertions, resembling his assertion that there have been no predecessors to the good Pyramid. Egypt is dotted with dozens of earlier examples, together with numerous that collapsed as the Egyptians have been nonetheless experimenting with the proper proportions. He makes a complete diversity of claims that categorical dimensions of the nice Pyramid, while increased by way of another quantity, might be linked to the dimensions of the axis of the Earth, its density, and so forth (a staple of the pyramidologist literature). He fits information of the internal passages to the dispensationalist timeline. And he someway concludes that the Egyptians didn't construct the pyramid, yet another hitherto imprecise race of Philistines, led by means of somebody named Melchisedec, who used to be just like the Biblical Job!
Seiss and the opposite nineteenth century pyramidologists have ample glossy successors. Their solution to 'when' is going way back to the final ice age; their solution to 'who' comprises area extraterrestrial beings and Atlanteans, and their 'why' comprises 'as an enormous electric generator.' Time will inform even if their theories will seem as spurious as Seiss 100 years from now, or bring about a few radical new figuring out of the 'Miracle in Stone.' --J.B. Hare
