2020 seems to be a Purge year. The fates just don't give a damn anymore, and all hell is breaking loose. We have a global pandemic, entire countries shutting down, a crazy election process in America, and a cracked US President. We have earthquakes happening in rare places, tornadoes in the northeast US in November, and asteroid threats.
With all of those combustible elements, the LAST THING we should be doing in 2020 is unearthing an ancient burial ground. Unfortunately, antiquities minister Khaled El-Anany doesn't care.
Over 100 coffins were recently exhumed from 3 burial shafts in Saqqara, Egypt, adding to the 59 coffins discovered last month.
"It's the biggest discovery of 2020, but we are not stopping here yet. The discovery of one burial shaft leads to another."
(No, no, no! Stop!)
Some of the sarcophagi dug up included mummies of Priests and high-raking officials. The mummies are presumed to be from the Ptolemaic period, more than 2,500 years ago.
El-Anany is hoping that the discoveries will help lure back tourists to Egypt.
My Two Cents
What the hell?! This is NOT the year to exhume mummies! You could have waited until 2021! Disrupting a final resting place unearths a lot of evil energy. The last thing the entire world needs right now is bad energy. We have enough of it stinking up the White House in America.
As far as displaying them like a museum piece, really? All you're doing is showing your lack of intelligence. Leave the mummies alone! Please hold off on desecrating ancient burial grounds for another year.
