Egypt calls it a discovery, we call it an exhibit opening

Be the 1st to vote.

It’s stories like these that help make it easy to believe that Egypt started its museum system around the time it built the pyramids a few hundred years ago and started 0;discovering” different rooms and tombs.

In the rest of the world, we call these “discoveries” new exhibit openings.

Egypt has announced the discovery of a private tomb belonging to a senior official from the 5th dynasty of the pharaohs, which ruled roughly 4,400 years ago. Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani announced the find at the site of the tomb in Saqqara, just west of Cairo, which is also home to the famed Step Pyramid.

In Toronto, they’ve “discovered” they can afford a permanent mirror exhibit – for $2 million. Link

Wonder how much it cost to create the phony tomb.

    The entirety of “Ancient Egypt” needs a good dose of sceptical scrutiny. What is the true antiquity of the Pyramids? Erected 2,500BC ? Or late medieval? 16th century AD and onwards? Constructions littered with Christian symbols (e.g. Coptic crosses and the Sphinx itself), all dating from the medieval period?

    How were the Pyramids erected? With 4,000 slaves, as the story goes, manually cutting 20 ton blocks of solid stone and, unfathomably, hoisting those blocks hundreds of feet up?

    Or was construction much more mundane? What if the “stone” used was actually a sand-based conglomerate? A ‘geopolymeric concrete…all but impossible to distinguish from natural stone” ? What if the “stone” blocks were cast from concrete in situ? Using wooden frames, and the simple addition of water? With the baking-hot Egyptian sun doing the rest. A whole lot simpler, huh?

    That’s the theory of French molecular chemist, Professor Joseph Davidovitch of Berne University.

    “If this is indeed the case, the mysteries of the megalithic constructions in the “ancient” Egypt disappear.”

    Davidovitch’s studies are articulated in layman’s terms in Volume V of Anatolé Fomenko’s works – History: Fiction or Science? CloozeForum briefly touched on Fomenko, but with characteristic arrogance, his lifetime of research was dismissed without a shred of counter evidence!

    May the reader decide for himself!… [ p.371 – ]
