Yes I did also. It is a no brainer! Just that 1300 BC Egyptian jewelry was Electroplated should be the first clue..And why haven't the 20+ year videos of the last tomb they put the snake cam in been released? I am not a conspiracy nut just a realist. There are coverups because it doesn't fit with Bible,Torah or Koran...In 1932 a Indiana Jones type found a Tunnel drilled just off of, straight down, in the top of a mountain in South America. It is a perfectly round seamless tunnel, that according to the gov't today, doesn't exist.. There are many many more.. Look here for 5 unexplained mysteries, that they can't say don't exist...http://downtherabbithole.posterous.com/top-5-unexplained-discoveries
Now if this doesn't make you question (or Answer) your beliefs. Then this discussion has been a lost cause..
Russ, your link of unexplained mysteries is underwhelming. You sound exactly like a conspiracy theorist. You say you're, "not a conspiracy nut", but then in your next sentence, you launch right into a conspiracy theory, "There are coverups because it doesn't fit with Bible..."
The worst kind of conspiracy theorist doesn't know he's doing it.
Look at all the examples in this wiki article... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out-of-place_artifact

Let us also consider Occam's Razor
Could man have made that?
Okay, problem solved.
- But man was taught how to make that by aliens and angels and Bigfoot and ghosts.
Occam's Razor tells us we don't need that additional nonsense when it is not necessary to explain something. There are a few remarkable people in the world today. Certainly there could have been a few in ancient times too.
I could find no evidence of ancient electroplated jewelry. Some ppl suggest ancient batteries were used for medicinal purposes. Even if they did electroplate, it says nothing of ancient visitors. Occam's Razor.
