Once again, while aimlessly surfing the web, I found some thought-provoking information worthy of everyone's attention:

King Tut new face -The Truth

Strikingly similar? Why does the first photo not at all resemble the others?
Why doesn’t it even look like the many people (Egyptian archaeologists) in one of the pics? Incidentally, The Discovery Channel a few years back did a reconstruction
of Tut that looked nothing like this either, but were much closer to the busts/paintings.

Zahi Hawaas is such an ass. He’s so angered by the idea of “black” Egyptians in any sense, he’d prefer Tut look like a Frenchman than even someone resembling himself. Notice his glee that Tut is identified as a “Caucasoid of North Africa.” Scholarship takes a back seat to politics once again.

You know there’s so much politics wrapped up in this, it’s a shame. Its no wonder they ended up with this…when they approach the entire matter from the whole Caucasoid African theory…which makes Caucasoid out of everyone from North to East Africa. basically they have fashioned Tut to look like what they expect him to look like–based on the wording “Caucasoid”–a nonsense term as best. This is the same issue they had when they reconstructed the deemed Kennewick Man, a Native American they managed to make look like Patrick Stewart. It was only after all of the broo-hah that it was pointed out that Kennewick Man most likely looked like the Ainu of Northern Japan—so-called deemed Asian Caucasoids who in reality look little different from other Japanese, despite the meaningless nomenclature “Caucasoid.” This game is played also in the History Channel’s redux of Genghis Khan last year, where they made the Mongol leader Turkic rather than Mongolian, based solely on the non-scientific idea of the “global Caucasoid.”

It’s the Hamitic hypothesis all over again.-Morpheus

Comment: Morpheus' sure has something here.
