and make of it what you will. 

And yes, extrapolation is allowed (encouraged, actually).

Before most of the audience had arrived, I was checking the focus on the slides in my PowerPoint presentation prior to giving my talk and I put up on the screen an image which shows the Orion/Pyramids correlation and the Sphinx/Leo correlation at Giza in the epoch of 10,500 BC. Rightly and properly since the Orion correlation is Robert Bauval’s discovery I included a portrait of Robert Bauval in the slide. As soon as Zahi saw Robert’s image he became furiously angry, shouted at me, made insulting and demeaning comments about Robert, and told me that if I dared to mention a single word about Robert in my talk he would walk out and refuse to debate me.

This is a modern ‘scientist’ in frank and open debate? (No, I’m not referring to the gentle Mr Hancock —I mean the nice Mr Hawass.)

I explained that the alternative view of history that I was on stage to represent could not exclude the Orion correlation and therefore could not exclude Robert Bauval. At that, again shouting, Zahi marched out of the debating room. Frantic negotiations then took place off stage between the conference organisers and Zahi. Finally Zahi agreed to return and give his talk and answer questions from the audience, but he refused absolutely to hear or see my talk, or to engage in any debate with me. I therefore gave my talk to the audience without Zahi present (he sat in a room outside the conference hall while I spoke). When I had finished I answered questions from the audience. Then Zahi entered, gave his talk, answered questions from the audience and left.

well now ....png

One of the few members of the audience who had arrived early did manage to record part of the scene of Zahi storming out of the conference room — see here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ziu2ygE_Wc

The whole illustrates the arrogant pignorance of the gentleman who had/has (?) his grip tightly around the neck of power at the actual site itself. Not good—but he would doubtlessly disagree; and I imagine that if I tried to debate the point would flounce petulantly out of the room with petticoats aflurry and spitting spiders in all directions.

IT’S A ‘cultural’ thing?

So I (why always me?) must bend over backwards to accommodate such open-minded, well mannered, couth and cultured, scientifically inquisitive little oiks as  this nice man? (Unless I do I shan’t earn my Snowflake badge) (Bugger~!)

No, my apologies to any deserving sensitivities I may ruffle—this guy is often both desperate to be liked and desperate to appear unbiassed. But the mask drops easily to reveal the thug within (desperate thug, I must add). (Is he Islamic, by any chance—and thus entirely open to unchallenged debate?)


represents the ‘scientific’ establishment of Egyptian studies and antiquities I think our world is a sorry place.

Perhaps he learned his objectivity—if not his manners—at the Adolf Hitler School of Fine Arts in Berlin (and is older than he claims).

But he has style—those ‘Indiana Jones’ hats  … ’nuff sed.


For ol’ Zahi, the very antithesis of The Snowflake

* Yes, Little Ollivia … that was indeed sarcasm. Pure, unsubtle, unadulterated, and the quintessentially genuine article.


I WAS RIGHT finger-pointing-down-animation-gif

when in earlier posts I murmured that the wildly enthusiastic Dr Zahi Hawass was being too emphatic (and a bit presumptuous) when he kept/keeps identifying with the ‘ancient Egyptians’?

(CNN)Ancient Egyptians and their modern counterparts share less in common than you might think. That is, at least genetically, a team of scientists have found.

Researchers from the University of Tuebingen and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, both in Germany, have decoded the genome of ancient Egyptians for the first time, with unexpected results

Publishing its findings in Nature Communications, the study concluded that preserved remains found in Abusir-el Meleq, Middle Egypt, were closest genetic relatives of Neolithic and Bronze Age populations from the Near East, Anatolia and Eastern Mediterranean Europeans.

Modern Egyptians, by comparison, share much more DNA with sub-Saharan populations.

The findings have turned years of theory on its head, causing Egyptologists to re-evaluate the region’s history while unlocking new tools for scientists working in the field …



I SAY AGAIN    buitre162.gif

that although Hawass calls the people who built the pyramids (and other such stuff) ‘Egyptians’ he may be desperately cashing in on someone else’s legacy (and glory)~?


simply living there doesn’t make you one of ‘them’. Never did, never shall—even if you do hold the passport. (How many American citizens were rounded up and popped into concentration camps in WW2—for having Japanese ancestry?)


a lot of stuff about the ancient Middle East but in the course of quite extensive readings have become a ‘Pyramid nutter’. If you have even the slightest inclination you might be stirred by reading about the GP of Giza, the Serapeum, the temple of Abydos, the uncompleted obelisk and many other such. Let’s leave those fanciful ‘space aliens’ out of it, and ask “How?” rather than just accepting that they are there. (Ask ‘who’ and ‘when’ while you’re at it.)

Or, if you listen to professionals like Hawass (and any others who’ve put in the time and distance to earn the degrees) you might like to carry one of these with you—


—and keep it handy at all times. History, it is said, it written by the victors … and the victor is the guy in possession of the field.

Holding turf doesn’t necessarily make you right …




By Hydra I don’t mean a formal criminal/mainstream institution, an organised mob of self-serving altruists pursuing their own ends around the globe and down through the generations.  I mean simply the universal human tendency for self-service; self-service most often concealed behind an ‘altruistic’ mask.

Beware the Hydra —>

But don’t fret—it isn’t coming soon to a place near you …

… it’s already here.


may we gather about the below item that triggers the Hydra hackles on this old dog’s neck?

FIRST my disclaimer: No 2 pyramid of G.png

I’d never heard of this writer/source before and have no idea of the reliability of facts provided other than

(a) some of them I already know, and

(b) I’m not impressed that he/she seems to have gotten it a wee bit wrong with the attribution of this snap.


if you go there and read it through you’ll find that it asks questions I often ask. Small world, ain’t it? The issue is that the Egyptians are making a goodly buck from their antiquities, which—pyramids especially—they claim were created by Egyptians.

I doubt very much that four millennia back there were any ‘Egyptians’; but the issue now is that there are two schools of thought on the date of that Creation—convention had it that the pyramids were created back then by herds of men and lots of whips. But even convention can change and the fashionable ‘consensus’ now is that the herds of men weren’t slaves at all but cheery volunteers and stuff. (Whips optional?)

The unconvention is that the GP of E (the so called Khufu Pyramid, the biggie) was in fact created thousands of years earlier. Brrrr.

Having read/viewed/etc widely on the topic I am very firmly in the latter camp; which still leaves the arguments unresolved: who exactly created the GP of E, when, how, and why? The damned masterpiece was never signed—but if it were, and with paint, the paint could be scientifically dated, no? Such science applied under the most scrupulous of conditions would resolve the issues, no?

No …

First we’d need a sample of signature paint.

And it would have to be unarguably genuine. That ain’t gonna happen. Not while the nice Establishment folks are in control and very very nervous about their milch cow.

I’m getting wordy—but if you are interested why not just toddle along to this reference:  CLICK ME  … and get a vague idea?

As for our cute little Hydra, I’ll explain a bit more later. (Sufficient unto the day…)

after this—

Scientists point out, however, that 60% of modern-day people still lack the enzyme for breaking down lactose and just don’t know it, meaning that they experience a wide range of digestive and allergy problems which they have never had attributed to their milk-drinking.

Another argument that has been recently been debunked is that drinking cow’s milk increases bone strength and prevent osteoporosis. In fact, the skeletons of our Palaeolithic ancestors, who did not drink milk, reflect great strength and muscularity and a total absence of advanced osteoporosis, possibly due to the fact that research has shown we can get as much calcium as we need from grains and vegetables alone.


—whatever you will. I tripped over this topic en passant but feel that it should be shared; milk-intolerance is quite widespread (Spouse has it) but few sufferers actually know that they have it.


Dammit! I still love lattes!


In New Zealand it gets better.

Much better—

Instead, people who are lactose intolerant can’t digest the main sugar —lactose— found in milk. In normal humans, the enzyme that does so —lactase— stops being produced when the person is between two and five years old. The undigested sugars end up in the colon, where they begin to ferment, producing gas that can cause cramping, bloating, nausea, flatulence and diarrhea …

—because we have ‘free’ milk delivered to schools for the kids to guzzle. (I have no idea if such enguzzlements are compulsory these days—they were decades ago and if a kid didn’t have a note from his parents explaining, and he refused, he got the strap. Not good, but all that lovely milk/strapping made for the world’s best rugby players, no?)

Given that nothing is ever actually ‘free’ I wonder whether this is really an act of kindness by the benign government & charitable donation by the milk-factory people … or simply an acceptable way of disposing of excesses without fouling the waterways?

‘‘New Zealand is the largest exporter of dairy products in the world but at home we’re not drinking as much milk as we used to. We want to be the dairy nutrition capital of the world and this starts with our kids.”

I’m an exister. But sometimes I learn, and today I learned a new word.

There was a time when England was the fount of the English language but today it seems that the best new words—the ones with uncompromising oomph—pour out of America. Long may it last~! So?

Aaaaaahhhh, moonbats … I have no idea who deserves the credit but I just love it.

The guy goes on to explain his views on journalism and social-medium ‘reporting’. For myself, and all both my readers: I am not paid to write. I just enjoy getting my notions down on pixels*, being read at all is the bonus.

He also goes on about fake news (journalists and other fakers); but I don’t have a face on Facebook and I’m no twit on twitter. I have had a few spam followers** pass by, though.

Moonbats, I imagine … or were they snowflakes?


* In years to come I can smugly say “See? I told you so!” (but whomsoever I say it to not only always said it first but is astonished at how long it took for me to wake up).

Its record as the coldest winter in Europe in half a millennium remains unsurpassed, a freakish freeze that still puzzles climatologists today. Various theories for the event have been put forward. In previous years, a number of volcanoes around Europe had erupted, including Teide (on the Canary Islands), Santorini (in the eastern Mediterranean), and Vesuvius (near Naples). Huge quantities of dust and ash in the atmosphere reduced the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth. The year 1709 also falls within the period known by climatologists as the Maunder Minimum (1645-1715), when the sun’s emission of solar energy was significantly diminished. Whether these events combined to create Europe’s glacial catastrophe that winter remains a matter of heated debate.

are limited, Snowflake. You can either be open-minded or you can apply judgement and actually discriminate (you know, those disgusting ‘value things’ that are so out of vogue these days).
