It is up to us to discern the truth, to grasp at whatever forbidden knowledge we come across until it is also discovered and hidden away of tainted.

Anyone who attempts to go against what the so-called experts tell us they mean are ridiculed, no matter what degree or their educational vocation.
This reminds me of Graham Hancock. He has a degree in Sociology and has worked as a journalist, both of which should give him sufficient credentials.
But since he talks about aliens and a "mother culture" he's treated as a nut. But at least he and others are trying. If it turns out they're wrong, ok we'll move on to something else. In that case we'd at least have some interesting stories.
Which could later be turned into novels, films, and TV shows.
Then we have hardline mainstreamers like Zahi Hawass. He believes that if he says it didn't happen then that's it. I've even seen him belittle the theories of others. In referencing the Hall of Records under the Sphinz he goes to the BACK of it and looks a few feet down a pre-dug hole and says there's nothing there. If he's heard the theory then he should know where the right place to look is. In his show Chasing Mummies he did a segment about secret tunnels between the pyramids. They find a cave or whatever, then stop when the path gets a little narrow. Again claiming there's nothing.
It's reasons like this I think Hawass should be fired.
He's past his time and we need someone new with a fresh mind. Someone willing to at least investigate alternative ideas. If Hawass is so sure he's right then what is he affraid of?
