Imagine Mariettes disappointment when, after a laborious search and plenty of explosives, Mariette found one of the gigantic sarcophagi, opened it...and found it to be empty. Where had the apis-bulls, topic of legends and myths, disappeared to? In the weeks thereafter he systemically searched the tunnels of the Serapeum. As he dug and exploded his way through the underground he found that someone had already been to these nearly inaccessible places and had apparently robbed the tombs. They were all empty and the lids either shoved to the side, broken or put to the ground. Finally, deep within the Serapeum, behind one boulder which was removed with dynamite, he and his group found a coffin that contained a mummified corpse, the only one found there. But it contained not a bull, but a human. A gilded mask covered the mans face and he wore a gold chain with two jasper amulets. "Was this the mummy of the prince Kaemwaset himself before our eyes, the one who was so devoted to the Apis bull?" Mariette later asked. Surrounding the body lie 18 small human-headed statues bearing the inscription “Osiris-Apis, God of Eternity”. Not bull-headed statues, mind you. Even later in this search a dream seemed to have come true as Mariette stood in front of two tombs that were apparently undamaged and untouched since thousands of years, indeed since the time they were closed. A golden statue of Osiris stood guarding the chamber and on the floor lie gold tiles that had split off the ceiling over time. That ceiling featured another picture of Osiris, this time shown as a Hybrid-Being. Convinced that here he would find the Serapis he opened the tomb with utmost care. But again, he neither found a bull nor the head of a bull, nor its horns. He found a rank substance that crumbled at the slightest touch. Beneath the smelly bitumen he found several shards of small and fragmented bones that (as later research has proven) had already been splintered in ancient times. No bulls...but what did the small shattered bones mean?
The sarcophagi are made of assuan-granite, assuan being around 1000 kilometers far away from the Serapeum. I wonder how they chiseled, smoothed and transported all these extremely heavy pieces and then somehow brought them into the chambers they had laboriously dug. The effort invested is evidence of the importance the contents of the tombs must have had. But we are supposed to believe they only contained bulls and shattered/smashed ones at that. So first they artfully mummify them then smash them and add some sticky substance to the mix? And besides: Where are the remains of the bulls horns? “Of course not”, mainstream Egyptology says. “They would not smash their sacred bulls, that would have been considered a sacrilege. Corpses were always buried whole in ancient Egypt”.
Two very well kept Bulls in Abuser add to the mystery: Tombs were found apparently containing the mummies of these sacred bulls. The bandages were untampered with and well-preserved. Even real bull horns were sticking out of the top of the head. Had they finally been found? But to the amazement of all involved, they did not find an intact Bulls body beneath the bandages but the bones of several other animals, some of species which couldn't even be identified. So do we here finally have evidence of what many historians and ancient scribes have always been talking about: The “Gods” creating “mixtures of species through cross-breeding”? In his book “The Egyptian Way of Death”, mummy-specialist A.P. Leca not only reports various that the inside of the two abusir bulls had been destroyed and filled with the bones of other animals. But what if these “other animals” had actually been the result of genetic experimentation gone wild? One odd passage from this mainstream-Egyptologists book says “The bull in the second tomb appeared to have two heads”. Dr. Ange-Pierre, specialist for Egyptian mummies: “In the inside of a second mummy that seemed to be a bull, bones of seven animals were found. A third bull must have had two heads.” Sir Robert Mond: “We found bones of a jackal in the tomb of a Bull”. It has been established that the vault found by Mariette containing “the man with the golden mask” and also the two bulls of Abuser had gone untouched by tomb raiders, thieves or religious destruction for thousands of years. So the question remains: Where are the Serapis? Or what are they? And why would the ancients have crushed them into shards? Could it be because these “creations of the Gods” were not actually sacred but seen as misguided, demented or evil? Lets see what some of the historians say. Manetho was a high priest and Egyptian historian who lived during the Ptolemaic era around the 3rd Century BC, the final days of Egypt. (long after the apis-bulls had been entombed). Manetho recorded the Aegyptiaca (a three-volume History of Egypt). His work has been and is still used by Egyptologists as evidence for the chronology of the reigns of pharaohs Most of his work is said to be lost, but as the Greek historian Julius Africanus (year 240) copied many parts of manethos writings, they survived. The historian Plutarch, who lived around the same time, writes of a heavy sculpture that the Egyptian king let transport to Alexandria. He writes that Manetho was the only one who had taught the king that the mysterious figure being transported is a Serapis. Manetho begins his history by listing the Gods and Half-Gods. According to him the Gods ruled 13900 years and the half-gods ruled another 11000 years. Interestingly, mainstream Egyptology accepts his pharaonic chronology almost without question but refutes his history of Gods and Half-Gods since “we know Egypt didn't exist that long and the Gods never existed in reality”. This is a typical example of the double-standards used by the establishment to disinform.
According to the New American Bible, the Nephilim appear as part of the "increasing wickedness of mankind". Their mention does account for the "giants" of Canaan, whom the Israelites also called the Nephilim, since according to Genesis 6:4 "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them." (NIV translation). This verse, which precedes and introduces the passage of the Great Flood thus implies that the Nephilim actually came to the earth at least twice. The first of which were destroyed in the flood, and the second succeeding the flood. Thus it is possible the "giants of Canaan" were the direct result of the Nephilim. The reference introduces the story of the flood with a moral orientation.
A seraph (Heb. שׂרף, pl. שׂרפים Seraphim, lat. seraph[us], pl. seraphi[m]) is one of a class of celestial beings mentioned once in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh or Old Testament), in Isaiah. Later Jewish imagery perceived them as having human form, and in that way they passed into the ranks of Christian angels. In the Christian angelic hierarchy, seraphim represent the highest known rank of angels.

I intend to read the article and already see that it warrants a star and flag. But is this a theory, or do you have pictures of the physical remains?

Ok, so I wasn't a total twit. Thank god.
It's actually a pretty good theory about Atlantis.
But what of the Sphinxes, do you believe they originate from Atlantis onto Egypt?
And would that be relevant to your OP?

Two, is there any indication of what type of animal was crossbred with what kind of human and why? For instance--what is the point of a human with wings? It's not going to be able to fly like a bird, and besides looking interesting, I think the wings would just get in the way? I'm not trying to be childish with that question. I just want to know if it seemed like they were just mucking about to see what they could do or there was an actual purpose in creating specific crosses.
