You always hear how these people are idiots and crooks and all but they neither look, nor talk nor earn like idiots.




in that case maybe its a matter of levels. People who know more about genuine history are the ones saying they are idiots and crooks. People who only read pseudohistory books and so lack the genuine knowledge will be unable to see that

its nothing to do with envy

its to do with facts

Harrah for that!

Unfortunately skyfloating has run out of content and is now just posting photos of his heroes and calling us envious.

I've no reason to be envious of a bunch of pseudohistorians - I could never live a lie like they do.

However I do get envious of some people: I'm halfway through Roger Osborne's Civilisation - A New History of the Western World. From the Lascuax cave paintings to Dolly the sheep, via Plato and pop music - in 500 pages - simply amazing.

The depth and breadth of his knowledge combined with his clarity of thought and writing style leave me envious of his intellect.

People read drivel like Hancock to be "open minded" but really his work, and those of his ilk, just close people's minds to the real world.

With Osborne's book every chapter has opened my mind to re-assessing the civilisation and the society I live in - where it has come from and where it might go.

Unfortunately Osborne hasn't included his photo (just 14 pages of references), so I've no idea if he is trustworthy or not....

I know the whole idea of "the good guys are the ones without money blah blah" but I dont buy it. Reward follows special contribution.

As for the content: For sure is that if it were really that bad, you guys wouldnt bother responding to it



Not to mention that the "No. 1 authority on ancient egypt" (Hawass) doenst impress me at all. Sorry if feelings are hurt.

Come on guys that we absolute don’t have the same opinions on certain issues and are absolute not capable in changing that, doesn’t mean that it is justified to start the use of abusive language or calling names to all those people.
No one disserves that in my opinion.
This thread doesn’t disserve such an end either, so please take a time-out and stop this in my opinion immature behaviour.

Again with the straw man?

Who, exactly are you quoting here?

Why do you think anyone reading this would consider Hawass to be the "No. 1 authority on ancient egypt?"

Hawass has his job to do. He does a damn fine job of it, IMO.

Are you aware of the absolutely astounding progress he's made getting antiquities returned to Egypt?

Just because the man holds a position with the government doesn't mean he's anywhere nearbeing the "No. 1 authority on ancient egypt."

Is the "No. 1 authority on economics" the head of the Department of the Treasury in the United States?

Is the "No. 1 authority on constitutional law" even sitting on the Supreme Court of the United States?"

Of course not. These people make far more money in private practice.

Robert Bauval's most recent photo with is daughter Candice.

from the look of her shes nothing to hide, but Bauval looks like the father of terror

(note: "father of terror" is the name that Robert Bauval gave to this pic so I'm not slagging him off in any way shape or form)



I'm wondering what Skyfloating thinks of him in this picture and wether that means he's also part of the conspiracy of silence

I just looked at the recent photo uploads by zorgon on the temple in turkey and have to insist that that they were done by a highly skilled people.

Highly skilled or advanced people were around 12 000 years ago.

There are several areas of Egyptology, so no single person is likely to be considered the "Number one authority on Ancient Egypt," though Hawass has been referred to in this way.

Here are some other candidates:

Woplja Erichsen (even though he's dead today)

Bob Brier

TGH James

Ja mes K. Hoffmeir

Among a great many others.

This I can certainly agree with.

Consider the skill required in several cave paintings done thousands of years before the date you mention above.

Tales of the Cairo Subway Authorities

According to various sources the subway authorities of Cairo have found ancient artifacts, already-built tunnels and writings during their diggings of subway systems for the city.

Since I could find nothing on this with Google, maybe one of you can shed some light on this.

I find it unlikely, the city was founded in the first millenium A.D.

It wasn't built on top of a more ancient site, as far as anybody knows and as far as the record shows.

But maybe you're thinking of the subway being constructed in Rome



Several artifacts that surfaced during the preliminary digging for the subway line — a Roman-era bronze compass and a bronze-and-copper spatula once used to mix makeup, for example — are on view in the show at Olearie Papali, "Memories From the Underground: Archaeological Finds From 1980 to 2006." Archaeologists organized the exhibition to take stock of the recent finds and learn from them, Bottini said.

No Im not thinking of the subway in rome, Im thinking of the underground around Giza.

Rather than a discouragement to look there, how about some encouragement in the spirit of research?

Well, there exists a subway in Cairo but there doesn't exist any report of finding any antiquities when it was constructed.

On the other hand, there also exists a subway in Rome (and Rome predates Cairo by quite a few years BTW,) and there do exist reports of finding antiquities in Rome during it's subway construction.

So, where's the discouragement?

I mean, you, or anyone, can go dig where you want. Most researchers try to guess places to look before they go. You know, to try and ensure they don't spend all that money for nothing.

So, if you want to find an 9th century A.D. trowel, go look under Cairo. If you want to find an 8th century B.C. carpenter's square, go look under Rome.

At any rate, don't let me discourage you. By all means, go tunneling under Cairo. At worst, you'll find nothing older than 9th century AD. At best, while you're there, maybe you won't have internet access.

According to various sources.......


What sources? If there are any legitimate ones, I'd be interested in finding out about them.

On the flipside, as Harte indicated, Cairo wasn't founded until 969 AD. It wasn't built on a pre-existing village or city.
