Same people who built the pyramids with the Pharaoh. It was the people of Egypt who put together those piles of rocks. Without Pharaoh and his kind the ancient Egyptians could have enjoyed their lives rather than slave away raising a silly ego stroking monument to their 0.0001%

Better question would be, what if Pharoah had focused his energy on curing disease instead of building the ego stroking Pyramids?

What if we put our money and labor towards the same, instead of weapons--which in the case of nuclear weapons we build and sometimes spend money dismantling?

At least with the nuclear weapons the fissile material can be used as reactor fuel.

Whenever I see old European churches, I always think of that question, and feel at the same time sad for those people and frustrated at the terrible cost of their choices. They had as much intelligence as we have, and yet they refused to recognize that if an omnipotent god wanted a church, he could build it himself. Then I see people today making essentially the same mistakes; history doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes.

I suppose if there were, he could cure disease himself. Or do anything we do.

And I'm here working like a sucker! :)

The Pharaohs didn't build that, Obama did.
