The media continually misinterprets the DNA paper, turning "possiblies" into "certainties." A case in point, http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100311/ap_on_re_mi_ea/ml_egypt_heretic_pharaoh. This talks about how the mummy IS Akhenaten, and how the study PROVED the age at death was in line with Akhenaten's. I must have read a different paper, LOL. Still, it shows why Zahi likes the Akhenaten hypothesis over Smenkhkare.

Very Happy Yes if you take the documentary at face value, you would say: case closed!

Then again journalists like to state facts. It's not anywhere as "cool" to write an article full of "possibly", "likely", "given certain assumptions we would conclude that", etc.

Taking Zahi`s show at face value would be disastrous.
I`ve just come again over the part quite at the end where he says that Tut`s arms are straight at his sides while they should be crossed over his chest in the royal position.
Oh Zahi, there is a limit to everything, and here you have definitely crossed it!

Oh yeah, clearly Akhi is a much better tourist attraction! I mean who outside of Egyptological circles has heard of Smen?
