To cut granite, workers cut a series of holes in the granite with a hammer and chisel and inserted wooden wedges. They soaked these with water, which made the wood expand and the rock split. The stone workers then used the chisel again to break the granite apart. The chisel was made of iron, whereas stone cutters could use bronze tools on softer rock like limestone.
 
According to a tourism website for Egypt, archaeological evidence suggests that the Egyptians hacked off the upper layers of weathered granite first. They then dug a trench around the granite to be cut. After the required depth of the trench was measured using a cubit rod, the workers cut in beneath the rock. They likely then cleared a pathway on one side of the cut granite and pushed it out horizontally rather than trying to lift it upward, the tourism website said.
Why don't they do the same nowadays and again how did the lift em up? No crane in the modern world can lift 1600 tones and be able to move it.

You are fixated on a 6000 year religious/ creation story so basically you in a box. Please get out of the box and see the many possibilities

How did they transport them? How did they lift them up in place during construction?
