Orthodoxy spouts the usual threadbare, unproven tombs theory and the alternatives offer tantalising - sometimes entirely reasonable - interpretations that sadly lack a vital smoking gun.
No wonder the Sphinx still has that smug, enigmatic look on its face after 4500 years.
Or should that be 12,500 years?
Unfortunately someone left those spouting the threadbare theories in charge. They won't
even look for smoking guns and probably wouldn't notice one after they shot themselves in
the foot with one.
After reading almost everything I could find on the scientific examination of the second boat
pit back a few years ago (it has been subsequently destroyed), not one single source ever
bothered to mention that they found a living beetle (and apparently very healthy) in it!! I saw
it on a TV program of all places. It's simply incredible that they would give so much informa-
tion about the conditions inside and not mention life. I suppose when they destroyed the pit
recently some workmen simply reached out and smashed the dirty little bug.
Coleopteras are even mentioned in the Pyramid Texts but people now days don't notice things
like this and would draw no connection. Nobody cares what's crawling around in the Pyramid
Texts anymore than they care what's crawling around in a pit sealed 4700 years ago.
