I am here late today. I put off coming in because I was burned out on all things Arcadia and needed a break. Plus I am not well versed in the tiniest little aspects of RLC lore as so many of you are here. I feel I rarely have anything new or of value to add..
Many of you must be asleep by now..But I'll place this discussion here primarily for Bill Kersey, when he wakes up on the morrow. Bill, you keep asserting the genuiness of Ben Hammot's discoveries. I explained yesterday (or was that the day before?) about the tomb in Kashmir, Roza Bal. indeed interested to know the truth, I would back Ben all the way and flood DRAC with demands that they do their jobs right and immediately..put the pressure on them. Call your uncle who works in the next building for help getting connections to contact.
Try every avenue you can think of to reach DRAC in support of Ben. It is not your decision to determine if it is fake or not....that's what we have experts for.
The problem is getting them to do their job, something even they don't agree on among themselves.
I am still trying to protect the site in Kashmir. I undesrtand Ben's dilema and all your scepticism but don;t quit on Ben. If he's done this for fame or money, that would be tragic and soon the whole world will know and he will be laughed and ridiculed, and maybe even face time as a guest of the State..I doubt he's trying to fool anyone. The risks are just too high. Let the experts decide.
Hi Shasta, I can understand the problems facing your Kashmir Tomb.
With Ben's Tomb it is a matter of timing as there are some things holding up progress.
When you have to wait for 35 years to unearth a site then it is great to see things moving forward. Most find it difficult to wait five years. But it will happen in the end.
People find it hard to face up to genuine discoveries which they do not have a hand in, or worse they are discovered by foreigners. Oh the indignity!
But now Ben and others are firmly in compliance with DRAC procedures there will be a good outcome eventually. Sauniere could not reveal the discoveries he was saddled with due to pressure from 'The Order'.
We do not bow to these pressures now despite serious threats to Ben.
The artefacts so far revealed were all discovered in good faith. A few more months is a small matter in the overall plan of things. Patience is a virtue. But give it me NOW!
