Hi friend, imma long time lurker, just joined, anyhoo . . .
what an interesting hypothesis you have there! I can see exactly how you're joining them dots and it's clever, however,
me thinks if the 'curse' were some biological agent, something like syphilis
or even better en.wikipedia.org...
" target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">tuberculosiswould be a 'better' curse materiels imo, for a few reasons.
Syphilis was known as en.wikipedia.org...
" target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">The Great Imitator especially 100yrs ago, as it "presents" (the
symptoms of) in so many different
ways so those 'differences' on his face (from that photo it's pretty hard to distinguish if it's even a
'rash' or a bruise) BUT that said, considering so many people who entered the tomb did die 'unusual' deaths
back then, but consider tunerculosis is a mycobacterium which can easily dry out and become happily 'dormant' until disturbed!
lol i.e.If you can
read the Warning Sign/curse! DON"T open the door unless you wanna Die! MF DIE! Yes YOU!
, or don't, then read the
sign and open the door eejit!
Alas, TB isn't that deadly, just ensickens one, however, syphilis is also a bacteria that akawk can't survive without a host, but maybe it was an
unknown strain of a disease that infected those who came into contact with it early after the tomb was opened, but it also "died out" with those
people it 'killed' ... maybe?!
But yep, the 'mummy's curse' being some kind of 'bioweapon' makes complete sense to me, I've not heard it mentioned before, is this a new theory OP?
