they showed the satellite map on tv,but he was cagey. you couldn't make out a thing and he just waved his hand that quickly. but i'm taking a guess! according to my theory, there should be some sort of structure or subsidiary pyramid south of the khufu pyramid. maybe just the remains but i'm betting something's there.

So you'll only share your "theory" if it's proven to be true? How will anybody know if it's your "theory" or not after it's broadcast on television? For all we know you could just be trying to look smart by claiming you thought of it first.
Also, I italics'd "Theory" in all my comments because something tells me it's not really a theory, more of just a guess.

You wonder why people won't take you serious
You say you have a theory but won't discuss it unless you are right? All that means is you wait until someone says or finds something and then say "yup that's what I thought!"
Share the theory, it is that simple.
I wouldn't hold my breath on Hawass' find. Once he really set the standard for Egyptian archeology but I would question anything he says afte his Chasing Mummies show. This guy has shot down every nonsense theory about the pyramids and Sphynx then does a completely fictional "reality show" setting back archeology 100 years. Faking discoveries and situations does nothing to help archeology no matter how much they claim it is bringing archeology to new people. I don't think most people want to think of archeology as faking someone pissing their pants so an old man can rant about the sacred shrine she has desecrated.
He has shown there are no secret chambers under the Sphynx or tunnels connecting the pyramids. He was one of the first to show the Sphinx was most likely carved from a natural formation and has discovered evidence of the slaughter house used to feed the workers who built the pyramids. But after this show he just seems like ab old man desperate for attention.Mr. T made his van go twice the speed of light because he wanted to prove that quantum physics was a bunch of jibba jabba.

Whoa, wait, this Hawass character faked a bunch of shit? That's brutal to his credibility.
I didn't realize that the chambers under the Sphynx weren't true. When did this happen? I was still holding my breath in anticipation of what they'd find under there.

His show is Chasing Mummies. We all can accept that reality TV is it's current form is fake, but even this show takes it to a new level. Apparently the producers forgot about IMDB because they claimed two women to be legitimate fellows but as soon as the first show aired people looked them up to find they are actresses. Now they were smart enough to find girls with archeology cred, but actresses none the less. One episode they showed Hawass ordering only the fellows and 1 camera man were allowed to go with him, yet another shot shows them walking and you can see another camera man following them. Then they break into a tomb "sealed for centuries" yet they charge right in without testing the air or using any type or re-breather. I am no expert in archeology but in some forum people claim to know where this was and that they had simply buried the front of an existing tunnel then dug it out.
Hawass has done a lot for preserving and even getting back Egyptian artifacts and he either thinks this in some way will help that end or he is just an old man out for one last ego stroke. I spent a ton of time as kid reading about archeology and Egyptology had this guy been on TV then I would have tossed all my books.Mr. T made his van go twice the speed of light because he wanted to prove that quantum physics was a bunch of jibba jabba.

people at the forefront of anything don't have the luxury of pulling up 1000 corroborating sources before they even begin. and if they are good at their job they are at that beginning every time.
and this man's credibility is only under question to sour-ass little pussies like yourself.

howass has been receiving international recognition for decades. he has a satellite map to back up where he wants to dig next (after he finishes his current projects), but because there's "nothing new under the sun", vapid comes in and says he's an old fraud struggling to get attention.
me, i'm just an armchair archeologist and historian. with NONE of howass' credentials behind me - please tell me, why should i expose myself to ridicule?

This is no proof of a new pyramid only his theory that one is there. I hope he finds one, Archeology could use the boost.
You know Tahn it is not what you present but how you present it. Did you ever think that if you came out clean and just discussed it people might take it seriously, or at least if the disagree you might still get your idea across. Your first post here was the one you started about the end of times. You got pissed about it being moved into the religious section. Do you think maybe if you had come out with your ideas about aliens it might have gone differently?
Honestly reading some of your stuff on the internet I am interested, because one idea I read a long time ago was about ancient men creating alien stories, well visitors from the skies, not from all genuine sightings but to bolster their chosen gods by creating enemies from outside their know world and that the alien mythos diverged from religious roots into what it is today. So did an early alien culture visit us and that started the mythos?Mr. T made his van go twice the speed of light because he wanted to prove that quantum physics was a bunch of jibba jabba.

Somewhere on this forum in a post from long, long ago I berated turds like Hawass who perpetuate the myth that "Pyramids are Tombs."
I stated something to the effect that no pyramid was every used as a tomb, and that no dead pharaoh were ever inside any pyramid for any period of time, and that the only way to prove the idiotic theory that pyramids are tombs is that you'd have to find a buried pyramid holding a previously unknown pharaoh.
The true test of his scholarship, credibility and reputation rests on one question, and only one question:
The cartouche of how many pharaohs are in the Great Pyramid and what are the names of those pharaohs and when did they rule?
I'll give you a hint: The number of pharaohs is two.
If Hawass does not admit there are two pharaohs and identify them by name, then he has zero credibility.This White House photograph is made available for publication by news organizations or personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph.

if you haven't seen a satellite image before - it's in shades of grey, but it's clearly defined and i think was of the whole valley. and the camera man with the journalist didn't, no doubt wasn't allowed, to show a close up. OBVIOUSLY he isn't going to give it away before he's dug it up.
are you and vapid just petty or what?
Nov 17th, 2010, 8:56 AM #17
So when is he supposed to start working on this dig?
Nov 17th, 2010, 9:02 AM #18
i don't think that was mentioned in the show, but what he expects to find is the pyramid of "a king called kengar".

it didn't say how old the satellite image was, only that he just received it. HOWEVER i doubt he would have received it so late if it taken in 2006.

Take away the pyramids and sphinx and Egypt's only tangible contribution to the world is the falafel.
His job is to perpetuate the myth that pyramids are tombs, and that Khufu built the great pyramid, and neither is true.This White House photograph is made available for publication by news organizations or personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph.
