The well-known report – about underground cities and giants – appeared in the April 5, 1909 edition of The Arizona Gazette, entitled “Quests in Grand Canyon.” Explorer G.E. Kinkaid fell upon a tremendous subterranean “citadel” while rafting on the Colorado River.
Probably all’s many incredible reduction may be the excavation of in Illinois an Egyptian grave from the Smithsonian. An extended front-page tale of the Phoenix Gazette on April 5, 1909, offered a very comprehensive statement of excavation and the breakthrough of the stone -slice container by an adventure brought with a Teacher S.A. Jordan of the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian promises to possess simply no understanding of its discoverers or the breakthrough.
While it cannot be discounted that the entire story is an elaborate newspaper hoax, the fact that it was on the front page, named the prestigious Smithsonian Institution, and gave a highly detailed story that went on for several pages, lends a great deal to its credibility.
It is hard to believe such a story could have come out of thin air. If this story is true it would radically change the current view that there was no transoceanic contact in pre-Columbian times, and that all American Indians, on both continents, are descended from Ice Age explorers who came across the Bering Strait.
Is the idea that ancient Egyptians came to the Arizona area in the ancient past so objectionable and preposterous that it must be covered up? Perhaps the Smithsonian Institution is more interested in maintaining the status quo than rocking the boat with astonishing new discoveries that overturn previously accepted academic teachings. Historian and linguist Carl Hart, editor of Word Explorer, then obtained a hiker’s map of the Grand Canyon from a bookstore in Chicago.
Poring over the map, we were amazed to see that much of the area on the north side of the canyon has Egyptian names. The area around Ninety-four Mile Creek and Trinity Creek had areas (rock formations, apparently) with names like Tower of Set, Tower of Ra, Horus Temple, Osiris Temple, and Isis Temple.
