I recently learned about some very weird facts surrounding the Sphinx carving in Egypt. This was from reading the awesome book by Graham Hancock called Fingerprints of the Gods. I guess this debate has raged for many years, but this is new on me and very interesting.
Basically the fight, debate, (toddler like arguing) is between Geologists and Egyptologists. Basically, the sides of the Sphinx and the walls around the carving have inexplicable water erosion.
The significance of this is that geologists claim that this type of erosion would have taken hundreds or thousands of years of torrential downpour for this to occur.
Egypt itself has not experienced this type of deluge weather for at least 10,000 years and probably a lot older. It was at the time when the plateau was much more green and wet than today.
Of course, Egyptologists cling to their concocted “facts” and what I consider dogmas like any religion in the world. They say “impossible!” and point to factors completely unrelated.
If this water erosion theory is true, then the Sphinx is at least 10,000 years old and possibly up to 15,000 years old. I don’t believe in anything that mainstream science has to say these days, so I would tend to believe these dates given by Geologists above what Egyptologists say.
So, in my own stupid view, the Sphinx is very ancient and was either built by a lost advanced civilization which resided on this world or by creatures not of this planet. Physical evidence will always weigh more heavily for me than a paradigm, dogma, or group opinions no matter their credentials.
