The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures 

"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.

Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”

Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More

But…didn’t they have contact…Egyptians and other Africans knew how to sail…no?

Exactly, Western scholars still fail to consider that indigenous Americans and Africans made contact while their genocidal ancestors still believed that if they sailed into the horizon they would drop.

No to mention similar architecture can be found throughout Africa. It is really not as isolated, I mean Igbo pyramids look like the ones above for example.

Dr. Reva Kay Williams is the first person to successfully work out the Penrose Mechanism to extract energy from a black hole. She is the first Black American female Ph.D in Astrophysics. — Dr. Williams was the first to prove “Penrose mechanism,” a mathematical model that uses Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity to explain how to extract energy from black holes. At a speech at Malcolm X College Dr. Williams told the class of 2001, “I began like most of you. Malcolm X College gave me the background strength I needed. It helped me become what I am today. I am here to tell you that you can be anything you want to be if you work hard toward it, have faith and never give up.”-Dr. Williams was born in Memphis, TN; and reared in Chicago from the age of 6. -Pre-doctoral education: A.A. (Liberal Arts), Malcolm X Jr. College, Chicago, Illinois, 1977. B.A. (Astronomy and Physics), Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, 1980. M.A. (Astrophysics), Indiana University, Bloomington, 1990.-Doctoral education: Ph.D. (Astrophysics), Indiana University, 1991.-Research Areas: relativistic astrophysics, general relativity, cosmology, and extragalactic astronomy.-Current employment: Bennett College and the University of Florida.Read more here: http://news.ufl.edu/2004/08/05/blackholestip/
