Then who could of gave them the power of electricity? Aliens? or Human's from the future?

if this was true... then one could wonder if these advanced beings who gave Egyptians electricity are even more advanced than some of the Gods of organized religion... considering you never hear about Deities giving man electricity in Sacred Texts. It was usually attributed to Electricity being Man's own Finding in more modern time.

I've speculated alot on the Dendera Lightbulb but have never really came to a conclusion. I want to say it was aliens since alot of evidence of the old world technology would indicate this, but i just can't be sure cause there's no verbal or physical proof from the aliens themselves. Could be a mystery forever.

Actually that might not be entirely true. I believe in the Egyptian culture, the gods passed down the ability to harness electricity to shine on monuments or light dark temples without the use of fire. My knowledge might be a little off but i believe that was the djist of it.

There was some way they lit up those rooms deep inside of the pyramids.

Mirrors would have worked with rooms not to deep into the pyramid, but the further you go the weaker the light is.

Some rooms were so deep into the pyramids that you couldn't even light a lighter in them.

They had to light the interiors of the pyramids somehow. Electricity and a seriously-long extension cord would do it.

my original first line nullifies your post... the advanced beings that gave the Egyptians electricity can be defined as Gods... I was talking about the Gods of Organized Religion... the Gods that are talked about in the Sacred Texts....

I consider in ancient times that the term Gods in use of plural and as a team of pantheon deities are actually either a) aliens or b) humans from the future....

I've heard of this before. I don't know whether to make heads or tails of it, though.

An intriguing theory, but I remain unconvinced.
At any rate, I highly doubt aliens or future humans were involved.

Correction: Fringe theorist think Egyptians had electricity, Egyptologist don't.

Whatever happened to speculating on the possibility of harnessing lightning in order to use electricity? Why are humans from the future and aliens even the topic of discussion?

It hardly rains or even thunderstorm in Egypt. The video suggest that they used underground water ducts from the Nile River and utilized wireless energy for their flash lights and lamps.

The Egyptians are to this world, what the Wakandans are to the Marvel world.

These scientists don't wanna talk about black people being on some next level sh*t so they'd rather give credit to aliens, smh.

Anyway, the Egyptians didn't really deal too much with "aliens". Their "Gods" were "light beings". No metal ships involved.

There was once a time when the History Channel was actually pretty good, but it has slowly devolved into just another reality TV station that somehow finds time to be a mouthpiece for fringe theories involving WW2, aliens, the occult, and Bigfoot. It's now pretty rare to find genuine historical programming on the History Channel.
