Lets go back in time. To a period in AMERICAN history when real archaeologists existed not just puppets of the establishment. I want to talk about an article in a newspaper called The Phoenix Gazette that was printed on April 5th, 1909. A man named G. E. Kinkaid was an archaeologist that was traveling down the Colorado River. He noticed an opening in the Grand canyon some 1500 feet below the surface. This was a huge opening that could only be made by man or some type of advanced civilization. It was not very easily accessible and he had to climb down the cavern wall all those feet down. Once he finally got there, he noticed right away that there were chisel marks at the opening of this intelligently designed cave. This was proof that it had been inhabited before by people or something intelligent.
The passageway that Mr. Kinkaid had found led to an even bigger chamber that had multiple passage ways that spun off of it like the spokes of a wheel. The huge area that he had discovered had enough room to accommodate more than 50,000 people. It was very massive in scale. He found a wide variety of tools forged from copper, and pottery/plates that had a glaze on them and very intricate designs. He shipped all of these artifacts to the Smithsonian Institute. Mr. Kinkaid had been working for the Smithsonian Institute for over 10 years and he never spoke of something so far fetched or outlandish before. In other words not only did he not have a reason to lie, but he shipped the proof to the Smithsonian Institute.
Immediately the Smithsonian Institute upon receiving these artifacts quickly dispatched a crew to do more exploring of the area. Mr. Kinkaid stayed as well to continue his work. The Smithsonian Institute sent a man named Prof. S. A. Jordan. Supposedly they found much more, proof that this civilization made their own tools on the spot and even had similar statues to those of Ancient Tibet. There was also proof that these ancient people smelted their own ores. Some of the ores that were found cannot be identified. They also found many vases and other liquid containers made of gold and other precious metals. Strewn very strange throughout the floor was a rock called "cats eye", or "tigers eye" which doesn't have great value, however it is very strange to look at, and is even considered good luck to this day. On the walls were very strange hieroglyphs. Some resemble animals and people as we know them today, others resemble prehistoric creatures that have long been dead. This alone could prove that this civilization existed during the time of these prehistoric animals found on the walls of the chambers. Mummies were also found that were mummified similar to the mummies of ancient Egypt.
The last thing I feel is important to mention is that a chamber was discovered that smelled very strong like a poisonous smell. Mr. Kinkaid describes it as being a very snaky smell. Did the ancients know how to create a poison or a trap? It is hard to say, one thing is for sure, they didn't go into that room.
Those are all the important points that are in the article from The Phoenix Gazette in 1909. After this article it was never spoken of again. No one knows what really transpired, or the exact details of what was found. Did the Smithsonian cover up these things because they knew it would cause all of the history books to be re-written. The Smithsonian Institute believes that all ancient cultures although similar in some cases (like with the pyramids, and megalithic structures) they did not have contact with one another. Do you really think that is true? Do you think there is a missing piece to the puzzle? I think Mr. Kinkaid believed he found it.
There is still no official record of this incident from the Smithsonian Institute. Many skeptics claim that this story was created because of "yellow journalism" which is the means in which newspapers used to generate sales by sensationalizing stories that they came across. The Arizona Gazette that inherited the archives from this article have no comment. The actual article can no longer be found in the archive in the Phoenix library. What do you think?
