Isn't that what they said about opening the tomb of Tutenkhamen?
Where did I mention any kind of curse?? I didn't. Please don't put words in my mouth
I am supersticious about the dead, it has nothing to do with curses.
My fiancee says I'm too supersticious about things. He is probably right
I said, I don't think we should disrespect the dead or disturb their resting place. I said nothing about curses
It turns out that really was a 4000 year old curse in the form of ancient dormant spores that modern people didn't have an immunity to or
something like that...I forget the details but there was supposedly a scientific explanation for the deaths instead of a mystical one.
Yes I already know about this. Again I never even said anything about this, you assumed what I thought and that isn't right. I just talked about this
as a matter of fact the other night with someone. We had a discussion about Ancient Egypt, They Pyramids and their skills.
Still, you've got to admit it's exciting to see something that hasn't been seen for 4000 years!
I said I go back and forth on this in my post.
I think it is really cool to see something that old. Heck all my favorite sites are ancient ones
but I also feel we shouldn't disturb it.
Regarding respect for the dead, I think grave robbers are pretty disrespectful, but modern scientific endeavors seem to be more respectful to
me and if it was my tomb I personally wouldn't want grave robbers desecrating it, but I'd have no problems with scientists studying it.
I could see your point, but they don't share everything they find out. I wouldn't mind if they shared with the world, not just a select few. A lot
of things are kept in rooms and never seen. Nobody benefits from that. If you are going to grave rob so to speak or study something then why not share
it with everyone, since in a sense it's their history. It's everyones history not just Egypt.
Dont get me wrong i Love all things Ancient Egypt, esp the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx and it is always exciting to see something new come out but I
still think it should be left alone. Yea I know I contradict myself lol It happens with topics like this, don't even ask me my thoughts on Mars
Seriously though, I look forward to what they find.
