A mysterious tunnel that has not been seen for centuries was recently discovered under a colossal ancient Egyptian temple dedicated to the god Osiris. Some researchers believe that this tunnel leads to the long-lost tomb of Mark Antony and Cleopatra.
A tunnel 1,305 meters long was discovered at the Temple of Taposiris Magna Osiris in Alexandria on the Egyptian coast. It is carved into the rock at a depth of about 13 meters below the surface of the earth.
According to the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, it was recently discovered by the Dominican-Egyptian Archaeological Mission of the University of San Domingo.
Describing the find as an “engineering marvel,” excavation leader Kathleen Martins said the tunnel’s architectural design is very similar to that of the Evpalinos Tunnel in Greece, an ancient 1,036-metre-long tunnel that ran through Mount Kastro.
Research has shown that this area of the Egyptian coast experienced at least 23 earthquakes between 320 and 1303 CE, which archaeologists believe caused the tunnel to collapse.
Since 2009, there have been rumors that Taposiris Magna houses the tomb of Mark Antony and Cleopatra VII, the last monarch of the Ptolemaic kingdom, who ruled Egypt from 51 to 30 BC.
In 2009, artifacts discovered at the temple of Taposiris Magna led archaeologists to speculate that the famous couple’s tomb was nearby.
Coins with Cleopatra’s name and parts of a mask have been found that they believe could represent Mark Antony. Since then, it is believed that Antony and Cleopatra are buried in the same tomb, which may be located near the temple of Taposiris Magna.
CNN Anchor Claims Dangerous Filthy Slums in America Are ‘Vibrant Expressions of Democracy’
CNN host Fareed Zakaria aired an astonishing rant this past
weekend arguing that major US cities are filthy and dangerous because of
“democracy,” and that makes them more “vibrant.”
Zakaria was attempting to provide a counter argument to Tucker
Carlson’s recent report that Russia’s subways are nicer than America’s.
Modernity.news reports: “American cities are expressions of democracy,” Zakaria asserted, claiming they are “places where people have to negotiate differences and find ways to live together, that makes them messier and dirtier and sometimes chaotic.”
He then argued “perhaps that is what has made these cities so vibrant and innovative, and why they have been at the forefront in making America the country that leads the world in economics, technology, culture and power.”
Is rampant crime, homelessness, and drug use part of said vibrancy?
Fact check. American cities were not shit holes when the country emerged as the envy of the world.
Zakaria continued, “Carlson speaks enviously of cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and they are indeed wonderful in their own distinctive ways. But what’s striking about all of them is that they are somewhat tame and subdued. The product of authoritarian governments or conformist culture, or both. American cities are different.”
He appears to be seriously claiming that you cannot have a clean and safe city without some kind of evil dictatorship overseeing it.
Zakaria continued “Carlson put forward a bizarre hodgepodge of assertions he thought the architecture, food and service in Moscow was better than in any American city. Really? Moscow?”
“Outside of a small historic center, it is filled with drab Soviet era concrete buildings. And while the food in Moscow can be quite good…Better than New York or San Francisco? You need to get out more” Zakaria concluded.
Has he been to San Francisco lately?
