Conspiracy Friday

Mr Tim Tutungis of Broome, Western Australia, has a revolutionary theory that Alexander the Great was buried in Broome 2,000 years ago.

Further, he suggests a cover-up and conspiracy to rival that in Roswell, 1947:

“Approximately 50 years ago, some guy went into a cave in Broome and he saw some inscriptions in there and they looked like ancient Greek.

“He reported it to the government, then the government went and saw it and they confirmed there were some inscriptions there.

“They went to the Greek community and they asked the community, ‘Is there anyone here who can read ancient Greek?’

“Naturally Louis Batalis put his hand up... So they took him up there and he defined the inscriptions as saying, in ancient Greek, ‘Alexander the Great’.

“The government did say to him at that time, ‘You didn’t see this, okay, this never happened’.”

One can easily see the government of the day would have wished to suppress this finding, say, to avoid culture shock, or something.

Mr Tutungis concludes:

“Nobody ever, ever suspected that Alexander could have died in Broome.”

So true! This discovery potentially could revolutionise scholarly study.

This is especially compelling:

"Mr Tutungis says he is 99 per cent convinced Mr Batalis told him the truth, because people "have looked everywhere" for Alexander's grave, to no avail."

Well if you've looked everywhere and still can't find him then obviously he must be in Broome! :)

It should have been obvious really, Broome being just across the pond from India.

But why is it always the last place you look in??

Everything should commence in Broome.


It would save time.

(WMD anyone?)

Perhaps the whole fleet - WMD - wound up in Broome?

Oh, that's right, it was never completed.

Some people....
