Hi Don In all fairness they did seem to go in for 'over-dramatising' - unless, of course, you blithely accept as literal truths things like God speaking from a burning bush! :)

Whys is it so fantastical to assume? Egyptian mummies containing cocaine when the coca plant is not native to Africa suggests the possibility of ancient trans-Atlantic trade routes. Given this possibility, Chris' opening statement seems reasonable. To read the transcript of "The Cocaine Mummies" where a host of eminent botanists, archaeologists and Egyptologists offer their scholarly

Hi Eddie I thought the Ark of the Covenant - as described in the Hebrew Bible - was a vessel that contained the stone tablets on which Moses is assumed to have received the Ten Commandments from God. A tabernacle in pre-Christian history is assumed to have been a tent-like structure whereas the tabernacle in Christian churches is a storage vessel for the consecrated eucharist. I fail to see t

Hi Raja While a small number of christians might subscribe to the idea cited on the web page you provide a link to - proposing that Jesus Christ symbolically represents the Ark of the Covenant that christians carry inside them - other posters are discussing an historical artifact which clearly predates Jesus Christ and which is therefore not connected to Christianity at all. :)

Interesting that your image places ATLantis in the ATLantic ocean ... * Why is it that on the shores of Africa there is an ATLas mountain? * Why is it that the Aztec zodiac has an ATL symbol? * Names like QuetzacoATL feature in Aztec mythology * Two continents separated by the ATLantic ocean yet sharing the same prefix (or suffix, as in QuetzacoATL) Coincidence? I suspect not. :)

Akhenaten also entered our history books for being the pharaoh responsible for the cultural/spiritual shift to monotheism where the aten - or sun disc - was worshipped in place of Ra, Re and Horus. Is the significance of the sun in 'disc' form significant to the function of a 'working' Ark? Is this not a secret of the 'sun sect' about which Chris Jordan writes? :)

Hi Chris Philip Callahan, the designer of Japan's air navigation system, claims that AE obelisks have a unique quality that was discovered as consequence of 1950s US Army Air Force installations of low-frequency radio navigation systems in the South Pacific. Callahan explains that the secrets of the obelisks can be demonstrated by making scale models with sandpaper. Experiments show that it act

Before I begin, I ought to state that I don't consider it to be a pyramid; however, when one looks at some of the photographs, some of the stone does indeed look 'worked' rather than natural - but then, I've never studied geology. Also, and I ask this sincerely, is it likely that the network of 'tunnels' as they are described, might also have been 'worked' at some point in history by human hands

Hi Cladking / Thanos I've been reading these posts with interest but I'm curious to know why you both consider that the volume of stone moved to a height of 120' could not be achieved by "primitive technology" and "brute strength" alone. Admittedly built later than the AE pyramids (about 1000 AD), the Brihadeeswarar Temple in Southern India has a 60 ton granite dome, carved

Hi John Enjoy! It would be interesting to hear your thoughts once you've read it. I very much enjoyed it and it's how I became acquainted with the works of Hancock and Bauval. :)

Hi If you haven't done so already, you should read "When the Sky Fell" by Rose and Rand Flem-Ath if you are interested in Earth-Crust Displacement theory. A fascinating read, footnoted by Hancock in his own work. Hapgood's controversial theory had the support of Albert Einstein, much to the annoyance of mainstream geologists - and who am I to argue with that brainbox! :)

At the temple of Phnom Bakheng there are 108 surrounding towers. The number 108, considered sacred in both Hindu and Buddhist cosmologies, is the sum of 72 plus 36 (36 being ½ of 72). The number 72 is a primary number in the sequence of numbers linked to the earth’s axial precession, which causes the apparent alteration in the position of the constellations over the period of 25,920 years, or o

Also, the English word "mummy" is derived from medieval Latin 'mumia', a borrowing of the medieval Arabic word mūmiya (موميا), which meant an embalmed corpse, and a bituminous embalming substance, and also meant "bitumen". The medieval Latin and medieval English had the same meaning as the medieval Arabic.

Hi John Abu Hamid's account of the bodies "enveloped in many layers" and his description of them having "blackened" suggests he was, at least, familiar with the mummified remains found in Ancient Egyptian tombs. The reference to the remains being "blackened" hints also at the use of bitumen or pitch which was applied to the linen, making the linen waterproof. An i

Hi John Could the quality of the carving on the relief not just be an intimation of a practice that continued in art until at least the end of the Renaissance period in Europe: the master would work on the subject or main focus of the painting while his apprentices would paint less important detail while s/he mastered their art? It's just a suggestion, but one worth considering. :)

My interpretation of the "slug with the antennas" is that it is a slug depicted with its optical and sensory antennae showing. Rather like the owl glyph is a depiction of an owl and the depiction of Amun is a depiction of Amun. Why does it have to be something complex and scientific?

The Rosetta Stone, as I'm sure you are aware, is not the only bilingual inscription in three different scripts. To substantiate the idea that hieroglyphs were understood by later generations of Ptolemaic Egyptians, one can refer also to the 'Decree of Canopus'. The Decree of Canopus is a bilingual inscription in two languages, and in three scripts. It was written in three writing systems: Egypti

When you write: "The people were scientists and we are simply mistranslating all the words of science because 40,000 years of science was encoded in the language and it was all lost when the language changed. Not only was the science encoded in language lost but the ancient scientific writings were lost because they could no longer be translated" how do you explain the Rosetta Stone,

Hi Cladking When you write: "There's simply no evidence they were religious in the least", how you do interpret the Papyrus of Hunefer (circa 1375 BC) which depicts the weighing of Hunefer's heart against the feather of truth, while Ammit waits to devour it lest it should be heavier? In your opinion, does this not suggest an established spiritual / religious belief in death and the su

Hi Anomalies The reference is to the Emerald tablets of Thoth - a text which has its roots in a hermetic work, commonly associated with alchemy. If you use an internet search engine, just type 'the emerald tablet'.

Hi Scott I've just finished reading the debate above and was curious to know what your take is on Herodotus' account (Histories Vol II circa 430 B.C.) of a visit to Giza where he described the GP casing stones as being decorated with "strange inscriptions". This phrase is curiously cryptic, for I assume (perhaps mistakenly?) that Herodotus had encountered hieroglyphics elsewhere or co

An inscription from a 6th dynasty mastaba on the tomb of Khentika Ikhekhi reads: ”As for all men who shall enter this my tomb…impure..there will be judgment…an end shall be made for him..I shall seize his neck like a bird…I shall cast the fear of myself into him." A curse against tomb robbers which is chronologically "in context", methinks.

Agreed. The "so chronologically out of context" example I gave was to demonstrate that tomb robbery is a documented part of ancient egyptian culture; looting, one imagines, did not suddenly emerge as a human behaviour in the 20th dynasty! By extension, one can hypothesise that it was as much a feature of earlier dynastic periods as it is a feature of 21st century crime in society. T

Max Miller, the scholar whose webpage I posted in my other post also has this to say: "Archeological data provides a lot of information about tomb robbers. We have actual written records, dated to the late XX'th dynasty, which describe the court trials of various people accused of tomb robbing in the Valley of the Kings. These records clearly tell us that tombs were robbed by the very same

Post interment activity in Egyptian tombs is well documented. For a scholarly investigation into 'tomb robbery' visit Everyone knows - yourself included - that tomb robbers were not remotely interested in "some old bones"; rather, it was the valuable gold. AE tomb robbery is not a difficult or implausible concept; homes around the world are broken into every day because that's where

Do I think there are hidden chambers beneath the Sphinx? Tests conducted at the site revealed several subterranean chambers beneath the Sphinx, though it was never determined if the chambers are natural or man-made. I recall that two of the chambers appeared to be connected by a small "passageway" - I use this word cautiously as I do not wish to suggest that it is man-made; I remain op
