In some of the old photographs of the Great Pyramid, a slight outline can be seen that is alleged to be the southern entrance to the pyramid. In these 19th and 20th centuries’ photographs, when the pyramids were partially covered with sand, this possible southern entrance was at the ground level.
Though there is no public information about the alleged entrance, it is mentioned in the book “Land of Osiris” by the American Egyptologist Steven Moeller. The book says Flinders Petrie, together with American archaeologist J. O. Kinnaman, found the southern entrance to the pyramid. It led to hidden rooms which contained the ancient records of a past civilization and the “anti-gravity machines” that were used in the construction of the pyramid, as well as records that the pyramid was built over 36,000 years ago.
Kinnaman, who was also a biblical scholar, told about it in a lecture to a small audience of Freemasons in northern California, later recorded on cassette, at the end of his life in 1955. He was born on February 23, 1877, on a farm 11 miles north and one mile east of Bryan, Ohio. He was the only child of wealthy parents, his father was a physician and a Harvard graduate.
In his childhood, Kinnaman acquired an early interest in antiquities as he gathered arrowheads and other native artefacts all around his parents’ farmlands. He graduated from high school at the age of 15 and was licensed as a teacher in the state of Ohio at 16. He was the second youngest student ever admitted to Tri-State College in Angola, Indiana in 1894.
His major was a Classical Course, in which he specialized in Greek and Latin literature, ancient history, philology and classical archaeology. In 1900, Kinnaman entered the University of Chicago in order to pursue graduate work in Greek and Classical Archaeology. While at the University of Chicago, he also studied medicine for three years but never completed the MD degree.
Kinnaman stated in response to this question that he and Petrie agreed that the world was not ready for that information at that time. Steven Moeller explored Petrie’s connection to Kinnaman and information about their finds in more detail:
“Kinnaman claimed that there was no written evidence of their finds in the Great Pyramid because he and Petrie swore to the governments of Egypt and Great Britain until their death not to reveal the details of what they managed to find. (At least Petri kept his word). Kinnaman stated that at the time of their discoveries, it was decided that society was not yet ready to learn about the possibilities of overcoming gravity and the discoveries they made in the Great Pyramid.”
Although there is no direct evidence of Petri’s friendship with Kinnaman either in biographies or in letters, there is circumstantial evidence. Thus, Stephen Meller writes that they were both members of the British Foundation for the Study of Palestine, the Victorian Institute of Great Britain, and two of Petri’s colleagues regularly contributed articles to the American Antiquarian and Oriental Journal, where Kinnaman was the editor-in-chief.
Kinnaman used to claim that archaeology would establish the Bible as a historical as well as a literary document, but only in the pure original form. Spending over 50 years in the field, Kinnaman circled the globe seven times in the pursuit of knowledge. As a true world explorer, he lived with a remote tribe of Eskimos in the Arctic for six months, was captured by Jivaro head hunters in South America and spent some time with African cannibal tribes. He was also one of the first archaeologists to explore the Catacombs of Rome following their rediscovery and was part of the archaeological team that discovered the tomb of the Queen of Sheba in Ethiopia.
Egyptologists such as Zaki Hawass and Mark Lehner deliberately created an informational “scientific” background around the pyramids, drowning out alternative theories. Lehner, who at the beginning supported the theory of ancient highly advanced civilization behind pyramids construction, suddenly began to promote the official story, enlisting the support of Zaki Hawass and received a complete monopoly on the study of the pyramids in Egypt, without any restrictions.
Lehner also actively refuted Robert Schoch’s theory of rain erosion of the Sphinx, arguing that it was some modern erosion. In the 1990s, Robert Schoch proved that the furrows on the body of the Sphinx and on the trenches around it are rain erosion. Such heavy rains capable of leaving such traces of erosion were not in Egypt according to the official chronology of 8000 years.
Kinnaman stated that one of the functions of the Great Pyramid had been a giant radio system. By virtue of the huge crystal stored in a chamber 1,100 feet below the bedrock of the Giza Plateau, Egyptian priests could send telepathic messages around the world.
According to Dr. Albert J. McDonald, President and Executive Director of the Foundation, one of the places Kinnaman said these messages were sent was the Grand Canyon. Kinnaman may have known about the find in the Grand Canyon in 1909 and even knew Professor S.A. Jordan, but we have no documentation of it.
If someone pays attention to his lectures, then it is certain that Kinnaman did not fabricate the discovery of an entrance on the South face, nor of the rooms with ancient records or the prehistoric antiquity of the Great Pyramid.
Kinnaman said he believed the world would be ready for that information someday and that it would be soon after his death. So, if there was any southern entrance to the Cheops pyramid and the secret chamber, then it was wisely protected by the mainstream egyptologists.
