giza pyramid intrigue

There will be a live program on tv tonight that should prove of interest to anyone who has an interest in egyptology.An attempt will be made to enter a door at the end of a shaft in the queen's chamber of the great pyramid with state of the art tv equiptment to find out what lurks behind it. They will be using the same type of sensor equiptment that they used last year in the world trade center recovery effort. It will be a National Geographic special and in my area it's being carried live by the FOX network 8-10PM ET. Anyway here's the link if anyone wants more information...

Thanks for the reminder Paulette - I'm always interesting in that kind of thing.

FOX is airing this?...In that case, I fully expect them to find a large alien spacecraft inside the pyramid! Maybe they can get Geraldo to host the show...he can make up for that whole "Al Capone's Vault" debacle.

I only saw the last half of the program but I found it very interesting. I was especially interested in the finds at the "city" where the workers seemed to have lived - debunks the theory that the pyramids were build by slaves.

Paulette - I think we should leave Greg in suspense - what do you say?

Pyramid

Two hours! Ugh.

I am a pyramidiot tho. One of those silly people who refuses to believe that gazillion ton cubes of granite were rolled on palm tree trunks from the quarry to the building site and various other things that don't seem quite right.

The outcome of the show was as incredulous in my opinon as the numbers 911 coming up in the NY lottery last week. I really do believe in synchronicity and coincidences but unfortunately I'm also becoming increasingly cynical about alot of things in the media. My faith will be restored if they just go across the Nile to Home Depot or wherever they go in Cairo and get one of those super long bits that electricians use and drill through the second door. I would imagine that they should be as curious as anyone over what lies beyond the door....what's most interesting about the great pyramid is that whoever built it went from literally heaping piles of stones to something as technologically difficult as constructing the great pyramid in a very brief period of time. Anyway if Geraldo were there, I bet HE would have been on their case. Most likely he 's probably either on tour with the American Idol Troupe or establishing a beachead in Iraq-never around where you want him!
