          There has been a project which has been started which seeks to figure out the new Seven wonders of the new world. However the Egyptians who house the world's only standing wonder of the ancient world the Greta Pyramid of Giza have this to say about the project

-Excerpts-

"Egyptian commentators have viewed it as competition to the status of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the only surviving monument of the original Ancient Wonders. "This is probably a conspiracy against Egypt, its civilization and monuments," wrote editorialist Al-Sayed al-Naggar in a leading state-owned daily. Egyptian Culture Minister Farouq Hosni said the project was "absurd" and described its creator, Weber, as a man "concerned primarily with self-promotion." Nagib Amin, an Egyptian expert on World Heritage Sites, has pointed out that "in addition to the commercial aspect, the vote has no scientific basis."[13]

After the complaints from Egypt, the New7Wonders Foundation designated the Pyramids of Giza the only remaining of the 7 Ancient Wonders of the World as an Honorary New7Wonders Candidate, and removed them from the voting"
