Researchers in Egypt have turned up some exciting news.
Egypt on Saturday said there is a 90% chance that hidden chambers will be found within King Tutankhamun’s tomb, based on the preliminary results of a new exploration of the 3,300-year-old mausoleum.
Researchers say the discovery of a new chamber could shine new light on one of ancient Egypt’s most turbulent times, and one prominent researcher has theorized that the remains of Queen Nefertiti might be inside.
British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves theorizes that Tutankhamun, better known as King Tut, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti’s tomb. Famed for her beauty, Nefertiti was the subject of a famous 3,300-year-old bust.
Reeves reached his theory after high-resolution images discovered what he said were straight lines in King Tut’s tomb. These lines, previously hidden by color and the stones’ texture, indicate the presence of a sealed chamber, he said. The images were later broadcast live on national television last September.
Why is this exciting news for Carson? Because he no doubt hopes that they will find grain in those sealed chambers thus supporting his theory, based on stories in the Bible, that the pyramids were built to store grain and not as tombs for pharaohs as has long been established by archeologists. But who do you believe, pointy-headed scientists or the Bible?
Carson, who has recently been experiencing a steady decline in the polls, has gone to Jordan to try and refute the idea that he is an ignoramus about world events and is now no doubt an expert in that area too. He has been visiting with refugees from the Syrian conflict and although he continues to oppose any of them being settled in the US, he says that they don’t want to come here anyway, so that’s alright.
No doubt he inspired the refugees with stories from his own life and told them that he would not have wimped out and run away like they did but would have used the knife and hammer and rocks that he carries around to fight them.
