  1. Unfortunately the ancient civilizations that have lived on planet earth, before us now in this age where we are, were much more advanced than, we. Incredible temples, buildings, sculptures, and of example, do not forget the Indian civilizations with their impossible temples with hints and evidence of extraterrestrial technology, since without tools, and have been able to do incredible things, which can be seen today.

  2. Heathen antiquities. Blood sacrifices were common. Blood was used to fertilize crops. Probably get a mummy dust curse for that dig.
    I remember when hippies were putting pyramid shaped contraptions on their heads, and reading the Egyptian Book of the dead.

  3. When I first read the story I was sure that they found them in Zowie Hawass’ basement.
    Very cool I would bet that more is buried in Egypt than was is above ground.
    Like Peru it is pretty obvious that many places are built on top of much more ancient sites.

    The antiquity of society on earth is more inline with Hindi stories humans are just the latest .
    My younger brother paid a guide to allow him to climb up to the hole in the side of the pyramid he said he felt air coming from behind the stones. There is much more to be found that will refute much of the common belief.
