Pharaoh Akhenaten’s son, Tutankhamun, was discovered in the tomb of his father, Pharaoh Akhenaten. Akhenaten is depicted in all artistic representations as having extremely exaggerated features. Prior to his reign, little is known about him, as if he appeared out of nowhere or from the sky itself.
Akhenaten made the old polytheistic religion illegal and replaced it with Atenism, the worship of Aten, the Sun Disc. According to ancient alien theories, the disc was a UFO, and Ahkenaten was an extraterrestrial. The Ancient Egyptian religion was restored by King Tut.
Because you’re probably too preoccupied with work or pretending to work to read this, I’ll just give you the bullet points on “Tut.”
• Tutankhamun is the Pharaoh Akhenaten’s son.
• Tut resurrected the Ancient Egyptian religion, which his father had suppressed.
• The cause of Tutankhamun’s death is unknown, but popular theories include homicide by blunt force trauma to the head, a chariot accident, and gangrene. “We can’t know how Tutankhamun died at the moment,” says Christopher Naunton, Egyptologist and former head of the Egypt Exploration Society, according to History.com. “It’s quite possible what ultimately killed him has left no trace.”
This is where I start to get weird and you begin to pull away from me. Akhenaten, Tutankhamun’s father, is a key figure for ancient alien theorists. Akhenaten is depicted in all artistic representations as having extremely exaggerated features.
But hold on, there’s more….
Because Akhanaten did the unthinkable and dismantled the Ancient Egyptian religion, King Tut had to “restore” it. Akhenaten outlawed polytheistic practices and instituted Atenism, or the worship of Aten, the Sun Disc.
According to ancient alien theories, the disc was a UFO, and Ahkenaten was an extraterrestrial. What adds to the rumors about Ahkenatan is how little is known about him before he took power, as if he appeared out of nowhere or from the sky itself.
