Egypt Discovery:

In the latter half, Dr. Carmen Boulter revealed an astounding new discovery in Egypt found using a state-of-the-art, satellite-based deep penetrating radar scan. The scan reveals 82 enormous chambers on two distinct levels at great depth near a largely unknown pyramid south of Cairo (view related images). The history of the deep underground site stretches from Herodotus in 450 BC to an excavation in 1881 by William Flinders Petrie. There are four distinct layers-- with the first layer Roman, the second layer Ptolemaic (Antony & Cleopatra era), while the two lower, older layers, remain mysterious and go down 60 feet, and 130 feet.

The find is 107 acres-- the equivalent of 81 football fields, with five of the rooms bigger than Olympic-sized swimming pools. "I don't think it was at the surface and all that sand accumulated over the top over time. I think it was meant to be underground from the get go," she surmised. If you look at the scan, the chambers and the two deeper levels are not connected, which suggests they may be from different time periods, she noted. Boulter theorized it's possible that ancient ET visitors used the underground chambers to initially orient or acculturate to our planet. She also spoke about the advanced technology of the ancient Egyptians and how they were a seafaring people, with evidence of visiting and trading with the Americas.

How is a leap from underground chambers to extra-terrestrials reasonable?

Why does anyone think homo sapiens 3,000 years ago was any less intelligent than homo sapiens today? They had all the same ability to conceive...and supplemented technology with time and manpower.

Plus they didn't have things keeping them from doing things such as TV, smartphones, computers, movies, video games, etc etc. They had more than enough time to build things on a grand scale because they had the time and gumption to.

Just an observation, clicking on the links other than Coast To Coast tracks you. Just hover over the link to see the address it sends you to.

Very cool! I love archaeological discoveries! And interesting that the Romans build a complex on top of the earlier ones. That sort of thing has been done elsewhere. Mayan kings would build bigger pyramids on top of existing smaller ones, built by earlier kings. There are pyramids within pyramids in Mayan country. It's a way of showing who's bigger and better, and who took power from whom. The top dog gets to show off.

I suspect in some cases, later monarchs stuffed antecedents in smaller tombs and continued building the big one for themselves.

Whereas the Egyptians were known to have an underground labyrinth of massive size, talk of ET and pre-Columbian contact makes me doubt this "discovery" entirely.

That's the point! Otherwise why would I bother with it in the first place? (As ancient astronaut theorists claim)...

That's the thing. If you were to take babies from 3000 years ago and bring them to our time with no knowledge of their 1000BC origins, and then place them in a modern school system, they would more than likely perform just as well as children of this era. The same could be done with children from 3000BC or 5000BC, I presume. I have always wondered why peoples who had long ago developed the capacity to function at a high intellectual level existed in such primitive technological circumstances up until a few centuries ago. No doubt much of their advances have been lost as with all records of them (archeology sometimes does however offers us a glimpse of what they were capable of, eg. Antikythera Mechanism).
