Egypt Exclusive has in its ranks the best Egyptologists, who know in depth all the details of the Pharaonic civilization. They handle objective data and information based on archaeology and science, approaching each monument and site in a rigorous manner. However, it is clear to no one that there are many conspiracy theories in Egyptfed by hoaxes,
or ignorance, or simply an imagination not lacking in humor. In this post we show you some of the most famous examples.
Extraterrestrials and Pyramids, the main conspiracy theory Egyptian conspiracy theory
Of all the Egyptian conspiracy theoriesThe most famous is probably the one that claims that the Pyramids of Giza were built by extraterrestrials. And it is not only people with little education who sign up for it, but even big tycoons. For example, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla. He suggested it on Twitter, forcing the Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation, Rania Al Mashat, to ‘come out swinging’ at the baseless tweet.
We are sure that Musk and the rest of the believers of this theory would understand the process of ‘perfecting’ the Pyramids if they were to take a tour of Saqqara, Dahshur and Giza with us. In that way, they would see the evolution from the Step Pyramid of Zoser and the Red Pyramid of Seneferu, before reaching those of Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus. By the way: nothing that could not be done by the hordes of workers mobilized by the pharaohs, considered at that time (Ancient Kingdom) true gods. Tens of thousands of workers labored to erect their eternal resting places!
A helicopter at the Temple of Abydos?
The Temple of Seti I or Temple of Abydos was the great pilgrimage center of Ancient Egypt, as it worshiped the god Osiris. But for many it has achieved fame for a hieroglyph depicting supposedly modern means of transport, such as a helicopter, a zeppelin, an airplane and even a UFO. And that would open a debate about what kind of ‘space-time’ help the builders of that civilization would have received. What is the explanation for this coincidence of similarities? Probably, the reuse of an earlier hieroglyphic relief… as was so often done in Ancient Egypt.
Dendera lamps: bulbs or lotuses?
Another of the Egyptian conspiracy theories Ancient refers to the ‘lamps of Dendera’, in another temple not far from Abydos. In several of its interior reliefs there are what the most imaginative minds consider light bulbs, something that would suggest that this civilization knew electric lighting. However, Egyptologists who have come forward to refute this claim indicate that it is the representation of the birth of Hor-Sema-Tauy, unifier of Upper and Lower Egypt, a fact that is usually shown as a snake emerging from a lotus.
These are three examples that, if you are curious, you can learn about during your visit to these monuments. All three(Giza, Abydos and Dendera) are part of our circuits and routes, where you will have official guides to answer your questions about these and other issues. Egyptian conspiracy theories.
