You didn't exactly specify what curse you're talking about, but are you referring to the "curse" of King Tutankhamun? Because from what I've learned (although Tutankhamun never really interested me personally), the people who died "from the curse" all died seperately, of different maladies, and at completely different times. So, hardly a curse.

Yeah, Think of all the mummies and tombs found and how those people did not just die after finding the tomb.There has been many tombs and few believed curses.

Actually, it was quite common to see curses in most tombs, but they usually ran something like "if you enter this tomb with an evil heart, may you be eaten by crocodiles".
The curse that everyone talks about--that associated with the tomb of Tutankhamen--just does not exist. Both a papyrus and a carving found in the tomb cursed anyone who violated the tomb. But both the papyrus and the carving simply was not there--the curse was a figment of an English newspaper reporter who was trying to think of a new "slant" for his paper. It actually came to be quite rediculous--people who's relatives where known to have visited the tomb, and the relatives died--were victums of the curse! The death of Lord Carnavron seems to have been the apex of the innuendo--dying from an insect bite was so blase'--it had to be something supernateral!

this like everything else is a valid thought, everybody has their own. and the whole curse thing, do we really expect every person who finds a tomb to live forever?

meh. Thing is, the curse is getting real old real fast. If someone knew how to come back as a demon, we'd all be doing it. Right? I seriously doubt anyone can come back from the dead, 'cept by a miracle. And a curse ain't no miracle.

Did anybody watch the show on the history channel Monday night? It was about the King Tut curse. If you are interested in the curse it would have been a good show to watch.

That ture. Tutankhamen made curse to the people who enter his tomb. I think that Tut was anger why they put his things away from him. That's why Tut is anger killed to them. He did kill the dog and the child... I believe the curse. I dont know how been the curse come from...That's good question...

But a dog , why would he be mad at a dog?If for some reason the curse is real (which I do not believe it is) wouldn't Tutankhamun kill the main people who discovered his tomb ~for say~ Howard Carter? Why would Tutankhamun curse a dog when the prime suspect who found and cleared his tomb was walking around healthy , and even opening his coffin. But , I may be wrong.
