Famous Egyptologist: Great Pyramid Contains Something Unworldly

Artist’s conception of alien craft over Giza

I can not confirm or deny this, but there is something inside the pyramid that is ‘not of this world.’

Professor Dr. Alaaeldin Shaheen, Dean of the Faculty of Archeology, Cairo University.

Is the quote controversial? Yes. In fact, the whole subject of aliensor ‘ancient astronauts’ as Erich von Däniken would call themis controversial.

But the quote stands.

Professor Dr. Alaaeldin Shaheen on Egyptian TV

Admitted knowledge that the pyramids contain something alien

The quote caused a flurry of conversation around the world and many UFO enthusiasts and alien watchers took noteespecially since Shaheen was presumably next in line to become Egypt’s Antiquities Minister, a powerful and prestigious post that oversees the protection and research activity of every historical site that spans the ancient Egyptian dynasties.

Former Minister Zahi Hawass

The minister at the time was Zahi Hawass , a strong and opinionated man dedicated to the protection of Egypt’s priceless treasures.

A slip of the tongueand sharing of personal knowledge during a social gathering at a conference endangered Shaheen’s chances to take over the coveted post when Hawass stepped into retirement. And the professor realized that after the fact.

Not long after readily admitting to a fellow colleague that the pyramids contained something alien, a firestorm ensued that threatened Shaheen’s reputation and his chance at the brass ring.

As the controversy grew, Shaheen went into full denial mode.

Aliens over ancient Egypt?

Damage control

Andrew Collins, a self-described friend of Shaheen, contacted the Egyptologist by email and asked the harried doctor if he really made such a comment.

In his reply, Shaheen vehemently denied everything.

Collins writes in his article, The Great Pyramid was not Built by Aliens: It’s Official, about the response from Shaheen:

“I received the following email from Dr. Shaheen on December 1, 2010: ‘Kindly be informed that I did not gave such stupid statement[s] about aliens and Pyramids. As [I am] Egyptologist I could [not] say such stupid words and ideas.'”

So who is this debunker, Andrew Collins? Is he a learned professor, a great investigative researcher, a world famous explorer?


It seems he’s a self-styled, psychic researcher who wrote a book with his own theory about the pyramids that he’s hawking online.

But waitmaybe his claim about the Shaheen email is still true? After all, what one’s personal predilections are does not necessarily reflect on the validity of the truth.

Well, even if it is true, it makes no difference.

The denial becomes suspect when considering that other attendees at the conference state Dr. Shaheen did address the idea of “outside assistance” to ancient Egypt. And a Polish delegate attending the conference named Marek Nowak of the Institute of Archaeology, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland did ask a follow-up question about the possibility of the Great Pyramid containing the remains of an alien technology.

According to a number of other attendees of the conference Shaheen did respond, “I can not confirm or deny this, but there is something inside the pyramid that is “not of this world.”

Is that quote verbatim? Unknown, but close enough to easily understand the gist of the doctor’s statement: Alien technology is buried inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Sheehan loses chance at Ministry

After the global outcryand colleagues raising their eyebrowsof course Shaheen back-peddled rapidly. But to no avail.

The Arab Spring erupted across Egypt, Mubarack was deposed, and Zahi Hawass was eventually removed from his lofty post.

In place of Hawass, Mohamed Abdel Fatah was appointed the head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities. Shaheen was pushed to the side.

But events are fluid in Egypt and the dust is still a long way from settling.

On September 20, 2011 Fatah quit, under fire from street protestors. So at the moment no one holds the position.

If Professor Dr. Shaheen keeps quiet this time about what great secret the Great Pyramid harbors deep inside its silent walls, he might be appointed as head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

If he is awarded the position, he better not be caught digging up any ancient alien technology
