Take the case of the Mummy, an age-old concept of fear of the dead coming back to life. To the ancient Egyptians, mummification itself was a form of science rooted in their relig

Geez, I logged on to find a sudden 60+ activity on my feed back area and was all "WTF is going on" just to find out it's you.. Haha.
