Talk:Helicopter hieroglyphs

More info needed[edit]

This article is too short. The helicopter hieroglyphs are the most important surviving artifact in the world today, proving beyond reasonable doubt that extra terrestrial life visited Earth. Yet the Wiki editors have not modified the article to include more detail. I expect a full article by this time tomorrow. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.93.128.171 (talk) 19:50, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

I may not agree it proves ET contact, but would like to see more information as well. Surely there is information to explain what the hieroglyphs mean/display if not a helicopter? 139.218.177.138 (talk) 10:07, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Definitely needs more info! I had no idea what this article was talking about, but when I read one of the links at the bottom, it contained very good explanations, and now I see that it is rather a simple thing. Would be easy to rewrite by someone with knowledge in the field! I would write something but I have no confidence in my ability to correctly transcribe the various hieroglyphic standards &c. For the sake of anyone reading this, what happened was they carved hieroglyph, then later someone wanted to change it, so they covered with a plaster and recarved a new hieroglyph. Now the plaster has eroded, so we see a combination of two glyphs. Egyptologists can tell what the glyphs were, they changed one of the titles of one pharaoh to the title of another pharaoh. Pretty simple, but to do the article right, needs someone who has studied the field, to get all the transliteration right &c. I'm drunk now so bye 121.222.145.52 (talk) 09:08, 9 June 2016 (UTC)


The explanation given here (5-7-2015) is horrible and fails to explain why this image very much depicts three futury objects, a helicopter, a tank and some kind of aerial/space vessel. They can simplify much by saying, it's just an amazing coinkydink! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.213.36.2 (talk) 23:36, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Linguistic revision needed[edit]

The article makes it clear, but in an obtuse language, that the artifact results from it being used by two generation of Egyptian scribes (engravers), and that the picture representing it has been retouched and does not represent the original.

Because the language is obtuse, it is unclear what it really is for the average layperson. I have no time to edit the article in better wording, but someone should do it at some point, please.

With my best respect, the actual paleidolia explanation is almost funny. I will try to soften it a little. The old explanation maybe explain one figure, but there are 4 resembling odd artifacts: helicopter, plane, submarine and tank — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.151.173.10 (talk) 05:30, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
I've seen them closeup. When you see it in person it's much more obviously a palimpsest than some of the photos suggest. Doug Weller talk 13:30, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
