On Thursday, Elon Musk expressed his admiration for the ancient civilization of Egypt.

He commented on a Twitter video of a 2000-year-old staircase case inside the Ancient Egyptian temple of Dendera, tweeting: “Ancient Egypt was lit."

The tweet was retweeted more than 2,669 times.

In 2020, Egypt invited the billionaire to visit the country and see for himself that its famous pyramids were not built by aliens.

The SpaceX boss had tweeted supporting the conspiracy theorists that claim aliens were involved in the colossal construction effort.

On July 31, the tech tycoon tweeted: "Aliens built the pyramids obv", which was retweeted more than 84,000 times.

Minister of International Cooperation Rania A. Al-Mashat denied the claims and noted seeing the tombs of the pyramid builders would be proof.

Moreover, experts say the tombs discovered in the 1990s are definitive evidence that the magnificent structures were indeed built by ancient Egyptians.
