Ancient Egypt

Home of the Sphinx and Great Pyramids

No nation symbolizes the ancient world better than Egypt. It has massive structures which have stood for thousands of years—the pyramids and the Sphinx. A great deal of controversy surrounds the dates of these monuments. Many of the explanations of traditional Egyptologists leave a lot to be desired. For instance, the patterns of weathering on the Sphinx (a monument which has likely been buried for most of the last several thousand years) suggest that it suffered from rain erosion. In the desert? The last time Egypt suffered from massive rains was at least many hundreds, if not thousands of years before traditional Egyptian history began.

In the photograph, above, notice how the body of the Sphinx is extremely weathered (largely by vertical rain patterns) and the head is more finished. Note also that the head appears proportionally too small for the body. Could the head have been that of a lion earlier but later changed to that of a pharoah, thus cutting away part of the old lion head, making it smaller?

The history of pyramid building is uneven. Traditional Egyptologists suggest that pyramids started out crude and progressively became better and better. Yet, later pyramids have been shown to be less refined. Whole books have been written on the unexplained puzzles of Egypt most of which remain unsolved.

Possible Connections to Atlantis

There have been some indications of agriculture around 9000 BC. The culture that developed those techniques appears to have disappeared or lost those abilities. This proves to be about the time Plato's Atlantis was said to have subsided. This is also about the time the structures at Göbekli Tepe, Turkey were built.

A number of dragon myths suggest that the creatures were in fact mechanical aircraft rather than flesh and blood animals. The Egyptian myth of the dragon and the merchant prince also hints at this possibility. Dragons have been suggested as possible ancient technology coming from Atlantis and used by its refugees after the island's demise.

Gods of Egypt

Egypt had been prized by Atlantis prior to its destruction. If Atlantis did exist and its refugees were successful in settling in the Mediterranean, it's possible that some of them used their technology, in the weakened state of the Mediterranean-area cultures, finally to conquer that desert river prize. The myth of Auser (Osiris), Sett (Seth), Asett (Isis) and Heru (Horus) contains many unbelievable elements when taken literally. But when viewed from the viewpoint of someone who may not have had adequate vocabulary for the real events, they start to make a certain amount of sense.

Take for instance the story of Heru and Sett turning themselves into hippos and fighting underwater for months. Asett, Heru's mother, feared for her son and threw a harpoon at their enemy. But oops! Wrong target! She hit her son, instead. Soon, she was able to subdue Sett who begged for mercy. She gave it, but then had to deal with her petulent son. The son cut off her head and hid it from her in the mountains. Then the sun god helped in the recovery of the head and Asett was better and stronger than ever.

Now, imagine the same story as a technological band of refugees (Sett) forcing the Egyptian confederacy (Auser) into submission. Another band of refugees help the Egyptians against the tyranny (Asett—opposition of Sett). Sett had disbanded the leaders of the confederacy sending them back to their respective towns (the cutting up of Auser) and Asett conspires with the Egyptians to create a far stronger, more aggressive council (Heru) to inherit from the older one. Heru uses one of Asett's submarines to fight against Sett's one submarine. Asett forces bomb or launch projectiles at the wrong submarine, but ultimately damage the Sett submarine. The Heru group then kidnaps the leader (head) of the Asett group. And she is later rescued and given greater security.

The book that inspired director Roland Emmerich to create the movie "2012." From the bestselling author of The Sign and the Seal. Reveals true origins of civilization, connecting puzzles scattered throughout the world. Four 8-page photo inserts.

The Orion Mystery
by Robert Bauval

One of the books which inspired Graham Hancock to write Fingerprints of the Gods. Delivers a compelling argument that the pyramids were located and sized to mirror the constellation Orion's stars. The astronomical alignment of the pyramids suggest they were conceived 10,400 BC—a period the Egyptians called the First Time, when they believed the god Osiris ruled the Earth.

of the Gods

by David H. Childress

Controversial and tantalizing look at possible technologies the ancients may have had, including ancient flight, use of electricity, megalithic building techniques, crystal lenses, and high-tech weapons including atomic weapons.

The Message of the Sphinx
by Graham Hancock
and Robert Bauval

Two powerful authors team up to deliver this riveting account which presents hard evidence that the Sphinx, Pyramids and other Giza monuments are far more ancient than previously believed—closer to 12,000 years old than the traditional 4,500 year age.
