Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Elon Musk’s controversial remark that aliens built the pyramids in Egypt has been roundly refuted by Egyptologist Zahi Hawass, who described the claim as “complete hallucination” in a video posted on his page.

The Billionaire tech mogul endorsed the unproven theory via Twitter on Friday.

“Aliens built the pyramids obv [sic],” the SpaceX and Tesla CEO said, adding in a subsequent tweet that: “The Great Pyramid was the tallest structure made by humans for 3800 years. Three thousand, eight hundred years.”

Alien theorists point to the extraordinary level of technical expertise demonstrated in the construction of the 4,000-year-old pyramids, which are counted among the seven wonders of the world.

Built as tombs for the pharaohs who ruled over Egypt, they continue to raise questions among scientists, who are not entirely sure how the towering structures were created. But they do cite significant evidence that human hands were behind the pyramids, even if some of the techniques remain a mystery.

Mr Hawass pointed to the recently uncovered Wadi Al Jarf papyrus, which includes the Diary of Merer, an official involved in building the Great Pyramid of Khufu.

“This is a response from Zahi Hawass to American billionaire Elon Musk, what you said about the pyramids is completely hallucination, the pyramids are built by Egyptians and I will tell you quickly the evidence.

Number one, all the tombs around the great pyramid mention Khufu pyramid, the king himself and also inside the great pyramid there are inscriptions telling us about the workmen and the gangs who built the pyramids,” the acclaimed Egyptologist said.

He went on to lay out more historic and scientific evidence supporting the construction of the pyramids by Egyptians and suggested Mr Musk read up on the subject.

His advice was echoed by Egypt’s Minister of International Co-operation, Rania Al Mashat who said in a comment to Mr Musk on Twitter:'' I follow your work with a lot of admiration. I invite you and Space X to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of the pyramid builders. Mr Musk, we are waiting for you.''
