Amazing what they can do now.

Egyptian pharaoh's mummy digitally unwrapped for first time
The mummified body of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh has been studied for the first time in millennia after being digitally "unwrapped".

The mummy of Amenhotep I, who ruled from 1525 to 1504 BC, was found at a site in Deir el-Bahari 140 years ago.

But archaeologists have refrained from opening it in order to preserve the exquisite face mask and bandages.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
