pkellmey: Wasn't there a Discovery Channel show that believed some of King Tut's gems were from meteor impacts?
peasants_are_revolting: Anyone who finds this article even vaguely interesting should read Dr. Robert Schoch's books on the origins and the ages of the pyramids and the Sphinx. They are pretty fascinating, and this article falls right in line with his theories.
caution: To be fair, it was probably a lot easier for the ancient Egyptians to melt down chunks of iron that fell from the sky than try to excavate it.
Evil Mackerel: Did they discover the fifth element?
CalamitousCrasher: Evil Mackerel: Did they discover the fifth element?Azeez did not provide enough light unfortunately.

djh0101010: All iron comes from space, specifically from the explosions of supernovæ.

Magorn: I've always felt that the reason that "cold iron" was a universal fairy-tale weapon against all sorts fo monsters and beasties and Faerys was because, when those tales were first being told, the only iron people had came from rocks that fell from space, so OF COURSE it was magical, and being harder and sharper than anything else they could make, of course it was the thing you usd to kill monsters.The fact that it later became more like Kyrptonite...a secret Achillies' heel of otherwise invulnerable beings was because iron became such a prosaic substance, something even a peasant could own, so it gave them comfort that they weren't helpless against the things that went bump in the night
shifter_: Teal'c of Chulak approves of this article......Time to turn attention to Antarctica where both the Alien temple and Stargate are waiting for us......
