What do you think of these Egyptian hieroglyphics?

Posted on Updated on

Answer by Aasim Naseem Siddiqui:

Well .. this is really a controversial piece of hieroglyph in the temple of
Abydos. Some people (who claim that Egyptians had some contact with aliens) believe that this hieroglyph is real and in original form.

Some other says that the carving was altered by the successors of Ramses II (may be Merneptah). It was a common practice among Pharaohs of Egypt to destroy the symbols and glory of their forefathers, in order to showcase themselves. Example is Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el Bahri, where statues and wall paintings were destroyed by her own son.

The temple of Abydos was build by Seti-I and finished by his son Ramses II, greatest of all Pharaohs. So it is natural that his successors tried to erase the trans of RamsesII from the mind of common people, and brought their own image at front.

My personal believes are, even if the hieroglyph were re-carved, the exact resemblance of modern tools/weapons in more then five different shapes leaves too many questions to explore. Merely saying it is a result of re-carving doesn't justify the situation. There is lot more to explore.

Remind Yourself How Beautiful Nature Is;

Posted on

I’m a city boy, I love everything about a city—the energy, the people, the buildings, the noise—and would cry suburgatory if you stripped me away from the city life. But after watching this Yosemite timelapse video, I might take a sabbatical into nature myself. It’s so gosh darn beautiful.

And peaceful! And full of life. Real life! I love how the night sky shines and rotates. I love how the snow is so peaceful. The green of the trees! I’m even flipping out at how gorgeous the rocks are. God, why would anyone want to live in a city after watching this. Nature, man. Nature.

The timelapse video of Yosemite was made by Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty with a Canon 5D Mark II. I have heard and read about Yosemite in different blogs and I remember it being beautiful, but this ?? Really amazing;

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 69,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
