cultures or statues that looked like aliens
And I`ll always remember the drawing of what looked like a central-american native on the inside of a Sarcophagus.
If you`d like I could post tonight some of the photos that I took and see if there is something related to the OP. They`ll be scanned.
I have to leave now, I`m going on a trip with my friends.
That would be awesome, i would love to see that!
Now i would like to add one more piece to this amazing puzzle.
The egyptians and the Grand canyon!
The latest news of the progress of the explorations of what is now regarded by scientists as not only the oldest archeological discovery in the
United States, but one of the most valuable in the world, which was mentioned some time ago in the Gazette, was brought to the city yesterday by G.E.
Kinkaid, the explorer who found the great underground citadel of the Grand Canyon during a trip from Green River, Wyoming, down the Colorado, in a
wooden boat, to Yuma, several months ago.
According to the story related to the Gazette by Mr. Kinkaid, the archeologists of the Smithsonian Institute , which is financing the expeditions,
have made discoveries which almost conclusively prove that the race which inhabited this mysterious cavern, hewn in solid rock by human hands, was of
oriental origin, possibly from Egypt, tracing back to Ramses. If their theories are borne out by the translation of the tablets engraved with
hieroglyphics, the mystery of the prehistoric peoples of North America, their ancient arts, who they were and whence they came, will be solved. Egypt
and the Nile, and Arizona and the Colorado will be linked by a historical chain running back to ages which staggers the wildest fancy of the
This is a very controversial site. It was discovered in 1909 i believe and there was only one reference to this site in a newspaper. It is said that
the Smithsonian was brought to investigate, but they never reported what they found. Ofcourse many people think it was a hoax, but why wouldn't they
announce that it is a hoax? More from the story..
"Over a hundred feet from the entrance is the cross-hall, several hundred feet long, in which are found the idol, or image, of the people's
god, sitting cross-legged, with a lotus flower or lily in each hand. The cast of the face is oriental, and the carving this cavern. The idol almost
resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus
far, it is possible that this worship most resembles the ancient people of Tibet.
This is a fascinating part of the story and i don't remember reading this, but i admit i never read the full article:
"One thing I have not spoken of, may be of interest. There is one chamber of the passageway to which is not ventilated, and when we approached
it a deadly, snaky smell struck us. Our light would not penetrate the gloom, and until stronger ones are available we will not know what the chamber
contains. Some say snakes, but other boo-hoo this idea and think it may contain a deadly gas or chemicals used by the ancients. No sounds are heard,
but it smells snaky just the same. The whole underground installation gives one of shaky nerves the creeps. The gloom is like a weight on one's
shoulders, and our flashlights and candles only make the darkness blacker. Imagination can revel in conjectures and ungodly daydreams back through the
ages that have elapsed till the mind reels dizzily in space."
In connection with this story, it is notable that among the Hopi Indians the tradition is told that their ancestors once lived in an underworld in the
Grand Canyon till dissension arose between the good and the bad, the people of one heart and the people of two hearts. Machetto, who was their chief,
counseled them to leave the underworld, but there was no way out. The chief then caused a tree to grow up and pierce the roof of the underworld, and
then the people of one heart climbed out. They tarried by Paisisvai (Red River), which is the Colorado, and grew grain and corn.
If you have read Dan Brown's Lost Symbol, you may remember the Smithsonian Pods which house most of their artifacts:
1.Dan Brown asserts that the Museum Support Center, a storage center for objects in the Smithsonian collection not on display, houses more
pieces than the Hermitage, the Vatican Museum and the New York Metropolitan, combined.
Fact: The MSC houses 55 million objects and specimens. Some quick sleuthing on the web sites of the Hermitage, the Vatican Museum and the Met reveal
that the total number of objects in their collections, combined, is less than 10 million.
Could these pods be hiding the artifacts found in the Grand Canyon? Or was this a hoax that they never reported on? I guess we will probably never
know. It has been 100 years, you would think we would have had an update by now, huh?
One last thing about this. A lot of areas around the grand canyon are named after Egypt.
