Egypt is a land steeped in ancient history and is generally regarded as the birthplace of Western civilization. Most ancient Egyptian monuments are located on the western side of the Nile, signifying the land of the dead. Monuments on the east side of the Nile were reserved for use of the living. Successive Egyptian pharaohs built massive stone structures dedicated to themselves and a pantheon of gods. But could there be a back-story to another civilization in Egypt, one predating the pharaohs by centuries, or even millennia?
There is little dispute that Egyptian monuments are some of the oldest edifices on Earth, but could they also represent the continued legacy of Atlantis? Might the many mysteries surrounding the Great Pyramid also have an extraterrestrial influence? Until this week, researchers who put forth such theories were routinely dismissed as literary crackpots who push fantasy as truth or history. That is, until this week. The headline alone should be enough to raise an eyebrow: “Egyptian archaeologist admits pyramids contain UFO technology”
