Dee Jay Nelson claimed to have weighed King Tutankhamen's coffin using his "mathematical skill"
" ... I was confidant that its weight was 2,448 pounds and four ounces of solid gold ... [using] this Pythagorean calculation ... "
Nelson found this enormous weight in a book where King Tut's coffin weight was a misprint. It ought to have been 110.4 kilos, but a typographical error, not caught by the proof reader, rendered it 1,110.4 kilos, a thousand times heavier than it is. [Peter F Dorman, Curatorial Assistant, Egyptian Department, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, referring to, "TUTANKHAMEN' by Desroches-Noblecourt.
Dr Robert Bianchi, Associate Curator of the Department of Egyptian and Classical Art, the Brooklyn Museum, states that the weight of Tutankhamen's coffin is 296 pounds troy [110 kilos].
Nelson lied bald facedly when he claimed that Egypt hasd engaged him to weight the coffin. His fate was sealed when he told so many lies that even some anti-Mormons didn't believe him any more!
