Recommended Posts

news icon rStories of "the mummy's curse" or "King Tut's curse" excited the world after the discovery in 1922 of the ancient pharaoh's tomb in Egypt. Lord Carnarvon, a British sponsor of archaeology in Egypt, died shortly after attending the tomb's opening, inspiring speculation that supernatural forces were at work.

In recent years a scientific mummy's-curse theory was offered for Carnarvon's death.

well, this seems very logical and likely. I personally don't believe in "Curses" and such superstitions. Also, have they tested for any sort of ancient viruses in the tombs. I suggest they test before opening any tombs because releasing an ancient deadly virus into the world is not a great idea by any stretch.

Either way, what they said in this article is most likely the truth. YAY for bacteria!!

I can't help but think that it is far more likely that he was killed by modern bacteria than by ancient.

It seems plausable, but not likely.

I do not believe in curses either, I would agree that the bacteria theory is the correct way to go on this one. I also agree that if there is some hidden ancient bacteria lurking in the depths of these tombs that releasing them into the modern world wouldn't be the best thing to happen to our culture as of late. Lets just hope it was something modern coupled with a weakened immune system and nothing freakish. :cry:
