The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures
"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.
Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.
The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”
Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.
Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More
Peru and Egypt are quite a long way away from each other…even though it seems like the only way they ever could’ve met it seems a huge bother to sail all the way across the Atlantic, around the southern tip of South America, and all the way back up to the top just to say hi to another civilization. Or vice versa.
Then again, the Egyptians and Incas did bother to built huge stone buildings in really tough places to build huge stone things, so maybe they were more determined than we thought.
Maybe they had instant messenger and didn’t tell anyone about it or it’s another one of those really weird coincidences. Either that or aliens.
It’s nothing but pseudoscience and conspiracy theories. Lots of cultures developed a lot of different things independently from one another (there’s an anthropological term for this but I can’t remember it off-hand) . It’s because humans aren’t so different from one another and *gasp* the laws of physics are the same everywhere you go. Pyramids and other similar structures are simple and practical designs. It’s the same reason you find that the development of stone tools happened independently at different times by different cultures all over the world.
Also, triremes and other ancient boats were incapable of making long distance sea voyages so contact between the Egyptians and Incans/Pre-Incans would have been impossible. They had a hard enough time in the Mediterranean (sailors would hug coastlines because it was safer), let alone making a long-distance journey in open waters. Even still, these cultures were developing at different times and if the Egyptians showed the Pre-Incan/Incan cultures how to build pyramids, the former would have been building smooth sided ones (being the culmination of centuries of Egyptian pyramid construction). There’s also the fact that Pre-Incans (Moche and Chimú cultures) were developing thousands of years after the pyramids were built. At that time Egypt was under Roman occupation and in later centuries after the Arab conquest was the Fatimid Caliphate (after the Black Death and when the Incan civilization fell to the Spanish was when the Ottomans took over).
Honestly when I see these kinds of posts all I can of is how folks whip this shit up and all it does is discredit cultures of their ingenuity and distribute incorrect history.
