Special Offers The ancient Egyptians built their tombs on the west side of the Nile River and their temples on the east. This practice corresponded to the rise and setting of the sun which represented the cycle of life itself. The east signified rebirth and the west signified death. With the tombs on the west or left bank, the spirits of the dead would be ready to journey into the cycle of life. The Egyptians believed strongly in the afterlife and made complete preparation for this journey. The three pyramids are actually tombs of three pharaohs of the Old Kingdom. In its most common form, a pyramid is a massive stone or brick structure with a square base and four sloping triangular sides that meet in a point at the top. Pyramids have been built by different peoples at various times in history. Probably the best-known pyramids are those of ancient Egypt, which were built to protect the tombs of rulers or other important persons. Pyramids were also built as platforms for temples by pre-Columbian civilizations in Central and South America. Still other pyramids exist in Sudan, Southwest Asia, and Greece. In the 26th century BC, as Egyptian civilization was reaching its height, three kings Khufu, his son Khafre, and his grandson Menkure ordered the construction of three huge pyramids that would serve as their tombs. The first of these, the Great Pyramid, is the largest ever built. It stands with the other two pyramids and the Great Sphinx in a cluster near the town of Giza.

Extractions: A comprehensive and accurate picture of the development of Egyptian civilization is not however, as clear as the preceding chronological listing implies. To put it quite bluntly, while the hieroglyphic language of the Egyptians was deciphered by Champollion in 1822 and succeeding generations of archaeologists have done admirable work in excavating, preserving and measuring the monumental architecture of the Egyptians, current Egyptological 'science' knows next to nothing about the origins of Egyptian civilization and the fundamental philosophy that underlaid it. This matter is far to complex to deal with in this essay but a few quotes from Egyptian specialists will alert my readers to the very limited knowledge we have concerning the ancient Egyptian culture and, most particularly, its origins. From the brilliant and self-described 'rogue' Egyptologist John Anthony West, we learn that: "It is not until the very last stages of Egypt, in Macedonian and Ptolomaic times (beginning in 332BC), that anything resembling our form of history exists. Egyptian history, such as it is, has been

This was my first trip to Egypt, and it was truly memorable, I was more than a little apprehensive, travelling as a single woman alone to a distant land with so many unknowns. But my fears soon disappeared, the people are wonderful, warm and hospitable, crime is almost non-existent, all in all a place I felt safe traveling. Im from Canada and was heading to Egypt to meet my Egyptian Partner and see all I could of Egypt for our future programs, I was not disappointed. My transit through the airport was speedy, a greeter met me with a sign, took my passport to process my visa, and escorted me through customs to the baggage area, picked up my bags and had me through to my transfer van very quickly. I met up with my Egyptian Partner who was to be my own personal Guide. If traveling independently I suggest a personal guide as a must so you dont miss a thing. Most are experienced Egyptologists, able to answer any of your questions as you traverse the country, they seize every opportunity to show you the multiple faces of this country rich in History and Events, and mine was no exception.

Extractions: ANCIENT RESEARCH FILES Most researchers take what they have at face value and go with it. The problem with this is that those facts they adapt to present day thinking and they do not adapt it to a situation that was present many thousands of years ago. In the case of the Pyramids of Egypt this is more evident in the claim that the pyramids were built in the early Pharaonic period. And yet! Where is their evidence to prove that that is the case. They ridicule more exacting facts for their own beliefs and ignore what is more factual. With the current facts now available we can see that the pyramid structures themselves are more than what many scholars originally believed. Why even modern Astronomers are beginning to find that their theories of the expanding universe is changing faster than they originally thought thus they have to change their parameters to match the facts. Why not also the origins of structures such as the Pyramids. Let's go with some amazing facts for starters. 1- The statue we have reported on in an associated page on this web site. (See Egypt new left!) As was stated it is carved from a corner casing stone from the Mycerinus pyramid. If that is the case and it is of Rameses the 2nd then that would have to mean that the casing stones themselves were not in place before 1 ad and not as was originally reported as to having been removed by the local population after the earthquake of the mid 1500's. Also we must make note here that even a sheik of an earlier period was unable to make a dent in the inner casement of the Mycerinus Pyramid using thousands of slaves after a period of 6 months or more. That effort can still be seen on the north face of the pyramid above the entrance used today.

Links from Number 80 Don't Mention Atlantis - Jan 02 " I avoid using the word Atlantis in my books because most people when they hear the word Atlantis immediately think that they're dealing with the lunatic fringe. I don't feel that I belong to a lunatic fringe. " Graham Hancock, Horizon, BBCTV, 14th December 2000 The general public has a great interest in archaeology - this has been true for many years - witness the ballyhoo over the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in the 1920's. This interest is as strong now as it ever was, especially with modern archaeology's focus on everyday day life in times past and not just the doings of the captains and the kings. The shame is, as in other fields, this genuine thirst for knowledge is too readily hijacked by the sensation peddlers, who can easily impress with outlandish and "groundbreaking theories" that do not really bear close examination. Talk of Atlantis, for which there is no shred of evidence, and other fantasies, abounds. The current term for these is " cult archaeology ", but in various guises this kind of thing has been around for a while. This often goes with a tendency to treat the Christian Old Testament as a reliable historical document. In fact it is difficult to define the exact boundaries of cult archaeology because it forms a part of so many unsupported irrational ideas and theories. You could include the ideas of

Dan Millar, who has been posting messages around the internet about the Virgin Mary, says this, "If you study the Virgin Mary's messages, you will come across the following; (Paraphrasing) "The Lady first held up three fingers, then four, then all five. She said, 'The three stands for March, four is April, and the five is May 5th. It will be an important day for souls.' " Perhaps the date May 5 comes from a source like this, because the book reveals NOTHING about that date deriving from the Pyramid. 1 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham: (Psa 78:51) Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

Extractions: The first slab of stone was amazing enough. Beautifully carved, preserved under sand and rubble for nearly 2,000 years, the piece was clearly an exciting discovery. But it was only the beginning. American archaeologist Timothy Kendall's team, working in the African country of Sudan earlier this year, discovered a second, similar slab. And then another, and another after that, until there were 25 in all. The workers laid them in the sand like the pieces of an ancient jigsaw puzzle. When Kendall and his team fit the pieces together, they formed a beautiful picture: stars set against a sky colored with traces of blue, and crowned vultures flying into the distance. But the importance of these stones goes far beyond their beauty. Kendall and others hope they will help unlock the mysteries of an ancient African civilization called Nubia that may be as old as Egyptian civilization. Dietrich Wildung, curator of the Egyptian Museum in Berlin, Germany, says the slabs, along with more finds that are expected to follow, represent "the discovery of a new dimension of the ancient world." Emerging From Egypt's Shadow Many people have never heard of Nubia. That's because researchers have tended to ignore this ancient African land and focus instead on its neighbor to the north, Egypt. Much of what we know about early civilization in northern Africa comes from Egyptian pyramids, writings, mummies and other artifacts.

Extractions: Click to order from Amazon Hunt for Lost City of Atlantis by Verity Murphy Imagining Atlantis by Richard Ellis Atlantis Atlantis is a legendary island in the Atlantic, west of Gibraltar, that sunk beneath the sea during a violent eruption of earthquakes and floods some 9,000 years before Plato wrote about it in his Timaeus and Critias . In a discussion of utopian societies, Plato claims that Egyptian priests told Solon about Atlantis. Plato was not describing a real place any more than his allegory of the cave describes a real cave. The purpose of Atlantis is to express a moral message in a discussion of ideal societies, a favorite theme of his. The fact that nobody in Greece for 9,000 years had mentioned a battle between Athens and Atlantis should serve as a clue that Plato was not talking about a real place or battle. Nevertheless, Plato is often cited as the primary source for the reality of a place on earth called Atlantis. Here is what the Egyptian priest allegedly told Solon: Many great and wonderful deeds are recorded of your state in our histories. But one of them exceeds all the rest in greatness and valour. For these histories tell of a mighty power which unprovoked made an expedition against the whole of Europe and Asia, and to which your city put an end. This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean, for in those days the Atlantic was navigable; and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Heracles; the island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands, and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean; for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbour, having a narrow entrance, but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.

Extractions: By I. M. Oderberg Several remarkable books have been published recently dealing with the evidence of lost civilizations and their astonishing knowledge of cycles of time. These books describe and assess remains that have either been misinterpreted or disregarded altogether as not fitting into the pattern of current theory. Taking a general view of the subject is Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth's Lost Civilization by Graham Hancock, ) which provides widespread coverage of global evidence for the existence of an ancient civilization, including many informative illustrations. Perhaps the most conspicuous case of an ancient civilization whose achievements are misinterpreted and ignored is that of Egypt. Most commentators briefly praise the structural perfection of the Great Pyramid of Giza, its two major companions, and the Sphinx, but only a few have the expertise or inclination to assess these achievements in technology or to explore the detailed astronomical orientations or the considerable knowledge of astronomy itself indicated by the early builders. Robert Bauval, a well-known Egyptian-born construction engineer, has co-authored two important books on these subjects. The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids , written with Adrian Gilbert, ) asks why the Pyramids at Giza were built, looks into the significance of the pyramid texts largely ignored since their discovery in the 1800s and explores the placement of the pyramids in relation to the main stars in the "belt" of Orion. This orientation was linked, moreover, to the precession of the equinoxes: that is, when the sunrise at the vernal equinox entered a new "location" or constellation of the zodiac. The authors cite evidence suggesting that the Great Pyramid may have been
