Of course, no one implied that the shaft was a new discovery. What is new (supposedly) is the attempt to open a sealed tunnel in its base. Few people remember that blocked tunnel which was depicted so dramatically and hyped in that FOX special, but I've been tracking all Giza work for 20 years so that nothing slips past me. That's why I'm calling them on their bulls**t now!
That was ten years ago -add that to this list:
It's been 16 years since a rectangular cavity was detected under the Sphinx's paw.
It's been 13 years since a larger chamber was detected under the Sphinx's rump.
It's been 15 years since German engineer Rudolf Gantenbrink's robot found the little "door" that plugs the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber of the Great Pyramid.
Eight friggin' years later they got around to drilling through it only to find another "door" behind it. They planned to drill through that right away but nothing happened and that was seven years ago!!!!
These are the most famous, mysterious, ancient monuments in the world and and those leads listed above got lots of publicity and interest, so why do things move so slowly (or not at all) at Giza?!?!?!?
I think it's time to start the Giza Conspiracy thread. I certainly have enough material for one!
