Zahi Hawass Walks Out During Debate with Graham Hancock

 

Last week, historian Graham Hancock was to debate former Egyptian Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass on the origins and function of the Giza pyramids. However, when Hawass discovered that Hancock would be making a reference to the Orion Correlation Theory and using a picture of theorist Robert Bauval in his slideshow, Hawass demanded Hancock remove all references to the work of a man Hawass considers a “thief.” (Hawass and Bauval have some history you could say on disagreement). When Hancock refused to do so, Hawass stormed out of the theater and refused to engage in a debate. Instead, both men gave separate lectures without interacting. Their interaction was caught on tape:

As they continued, when asked about the 10,000-year-old Turkish megalithic site Göbekli Tepe, and the impact this site might have on Egypt’s archeology and on the controversy over the age of the Sphinx, Hawass admits he had never heard of Göbekli Tepe before in the video below:
