I have known about this controversy for several years but chose not to comment - until now. In high school (the 1960s), some of us read (what I now consider a sacred scripture) "The Birds." The Birds (Greek: Ὄρνιθες Ornithes) is a comedy by the Ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes. The play is posted HERE and includes a link to a free download. Read it, if you can read. Meditate upon it, if you can meditate. Scarabs were popular amulets in ancient Egypt. They survive in large numbers and, through their inscriptions and typology, they are an important source of information for archeologists and historians of the Ancient world. They also represent a significant body of ancient art. The shape is reminiscent of an Egyptian scarab (perhaps intentionally), but is a combined “O” and “T.” What if there was a discovery - say dating from 25,000 years ago, of a ceramic scarab buried under a pyramid in Bosnia? Mentioned in the Smithsonian. (2009) Well, no big deal, right? If one old pyramid was made of concrete? Other weirdness. So, where is the dung (sh*t)? HERE Elusive? Not at all. Same old sh*t? No. This sh*t is OLDER. At least it didn't arrive in a bag!
