    Could there be a connection between Peru and Egypt?

    I was surprised to learn that there are pyramids and mummies in Peru. I saw some of both.

    As we studied the ancient religion of Peru, I was astonished at the similarities in belief of the ancient Egyptians and the ancient Peruvians. They had a very similar view of after-life.

    Then, as I was visiting a museum in Peru, I saw an identical head piece that I saw in Egypt.

    In the various temples in Egypt there were many depictions of the Egyptian God, Amun. He always wore a headpiece with two conical parts.

    In the musem in Lima, they had a head piece that was worn by an Inca. It was hidden from the Spanish by a Peruvian family and only recently donated to the museum.

    The head piece seems identical to the one worn by Amun. Could there be some kind of connection between the ancient Egyptians and the Incas?

    There's no question in my (somewhat feeble) mind that there's a connection. What that connection is, I don't know. There's an awful lot of similarity between the cultures and I don't believe in coincidence.
    Wherever I am, God is, and all is well.

    There's a whole documentary series, called Stargate, that explains how this all works.

    I've been seeing TV docomentaries connecting the Egyptians with the Incan and Mayans for almost as long as I can remember. Every one of them concluded that aliens must be the the link the cultures.

    I have wondered if the Tower of Babel shape was a ziggeraut or pyramid.

    Documentary eh?
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us wthout end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
