Two German archaeologists on trial in Egypt after questioning whether pyramids were built by Egyptians

Two German men who visited the Egyptian pyramids in April 2013 now face criminal charges for their attempt to prove their “alternative history” conspiracy theories through vandalism. The men, Dominique Goerlitz and Stefan Erdmann, were joined by a third German, a filmmaker who accompanied them to document their “discoveries.”
The men were allowed to enter the inner chambers of the Great Pyramid at Giza normally off-limits to the public and restricted to authorized archaeologists and Egyptologists. The group reportedly took several items from the pyramids, including taking samples of a cartouche (identifying inscription) of the pharaoh Khufu, also known as Cheops. Goerlitz and Erdmann, who are not archaeologists but have instead been described as “hobbyists,” allegedly smuggled the artifacts out of the country in violation of strict antiquities laws, according to news reports.
In addition to the three Germans, six Egyptians are being held in connection with the case, including several guards and inspectors from the Egyptian Antiquities Ministry who allowed the men into the pyramid. Tourism, one of Egypt’s most important industries, has dropped dramatically in recent years due to social and political unrest. Tour-agency owners including one of the men recently arrested in connection with this case are often willing to bend or break the rules if it means satisfying wealthy foreigners, news reports suggest. The German government expressed outrage over the acts, and categorically stated the men were private citizens and not in any way affiliated with its German Archaeological Institute.

Trying to prove a conspiracyGoerlitz and Erdmann acknowledged their acts, and even went so far as to post photographs and videos of themselves vandalizing the archaeological sites. However, they claimed their goal was a noble one: to prove their “alternative history” conspiracy theory that the pyramids were not built by ancient Egyptians.
The men are apparently convinced the cartouche identifying Khufu as the creator of the Great Pyramid at Giza is a fake, and they hoped to do an analysis on the pigments to prove they were not as old as the pyramids themselves. In essence, they claimed, pharaoh Khufu simply put his name on (and took credit for) pyramids that had been built thousands of years earlier by people from the legendary city of Atlantis. They accuse mainstream archaeologists of covering up or willfully ignoring evidence pointing to non-Egyptian origins of the pyramids.
TAP – Now that would be a crime.  Letting the cat out of the bag has to be stopped at all costs.

    Interesting the only other situation I can think of, where people have questioned the past and found themselves arrested and tried in courts are holocaust revisionists.

    This shows total control when you are not allowed to question history. Let the people decide through the evidence whether a conspiracy theory is in fact a conspiracy fact. Many people have said man never built the pyramids. These men are not the first nor will they be the last.

    becuase the holy lands are under jewish control all ancient finds are confiscated, some which disagree with the story the jews whish to promote are exploited others which dont are destroyed, this even goes so far as to “find ” stone carvings which have changed the begginings of christianity, and those of jewry to be older than in fact it was

    Harbinger consider the fate of Galileo He was tried by the Holy Office, then found “vehemently suspect of heresy”, was forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest

    His crime telling people that the Earth went around the Sun.

    Questioning the dodgy Zionist tale is of course modern day heresy because they derive their power any control from foundations of sand. The same “denier” rhetoric is also employed against the new heretics who question the High Church of Warmingclimateology.
