Coca and tobacco have been found in ancient Egyptian mummies: Is this the ultimate proof of transoceanic travel 5,000 years ago?
And if the ancient Egyptian civilization was much more advanced than we have ever imagined? After all, they are the rightful owners of some of the most impressive ancient structures on the planet’s surface.
Is it hard to believe that they could have built ships that would have allowed them to travel to other continents?
According to the DNA analysis of ancient Egyptian mummies, this cannot simply be “another crazy conspiracy.
Dr. Svetla Balabanova was in total disbelief when she saw the results of her own analysis.
The prestigious German doctor had been charged with analyzing several mummies for traces of drug use in the rulers of ancient Egypt.
What he found was considered a change in history.
After analyzing several ancient Egyptian mummies, researchers discovered the presence of high levels of cocaine, nicotine and tetrahydrocannabinol in bodies that were preserved for thousands of years.
With scientific rigour, Dr. Balabanova repeated the tests several times and sent samples to other laboratories for independent testing.
All successive analyses confirmed the initial results.
The ancient Egyptian mummies had high levels of cocaine, nicotine and tetrahydrocannabinol. But where did the ancient Egyptians get these substances?
Despite finding evidence, the scientific community remained skeptical, accusing researchers who had been incompetent.
They began by saying that the mummies were fake until they were proven to be authentic.
They then continued to argue that they were contaminated until it was proved impossible to contaminate the inner stem of a hair.
They then claimed that the experiments were not reproducible until an independent group of experts found traces of cocaine and nicotine in other Egyptian mummies in a British museum.
Finally, they ended up defending the indefensible: that tobacco and coca did not come from South America, but were very rare varieties of African origin.
What the mummies tell us is an intolerable story for history as we have learned in school.
Coca and tobacco are undoubtedly originating in South America.
The Egyptians apparently had the ability to build pyramids but did not have enough naval skills to cross the Atlantic Ocean.
How can we explain these controversial results?
Is it possible that the ancient Egyptians travelled in some way to the American continent thousands of years ago?
Or could this be sufficient proof that a very advanced civilization existed on Earth thousands of years ago? A civilization that had knowledge and technologies that neither the Egyptians nor the Greeks nor the Romans had at that time?
Regardless of what it may have been, many authors agree that this is irrefutable proof that the ancient Egyptians had contact with products that originated in the middle of the globe; on the American continent.
But what if we’re wrong? For all those who are interested? see another side of this story, you can read an article that was first published in the magazine. New Dawn Magazine issue 156, May/June 2016. Basically opposes everything conceived.
For those of you who can’t read the magazine article here is an alternative.
