Mathematics And The Great Pyramid

Terrance Nevin says the Great Pyramid is a rational structure (in the mathematical sense), designed and built by normal people.
This is a radical statement about the Pyramid, especially on the internet because all web pages that I have been able to find that deal with the Pyramid, maintain that it was built and/or inspired by either God or space aliens. Most don't even consider that it could be a rational structure designed and built by normal people.

The only people who think aliens designed/built the pyramids live in the -2 sigma corner of bell curve.

A -2 sigma corner of the bell curve? That would mean they have a 1/20 chance of being right. :)
