The Sphinx the enduring symbol if ancient Egypt one of the worlds most significant monuments A monstrous 240 feet long and 66 feet high it lies in the old kingdom quarry carved from a core of solid bedrock and completed with masonry Now is where we run into a problem We cannot truly date this monument It was thought to be around 2500BC but it could actually be in fact 9000 years older than that They believe this due to the erosion of it it is not wind but water meaning it had to be dated back to when Egypt couldve actually had that much water Now how can we be so sure This would change alot in history and Egyptoligist are all against the thought Well let me tell you I am with Mr John Anthony West the brilliant mind to the erosion discovery on this one and now I will tell you why This is an open and shut case The Sphinx definatly shows that it has water erosion no wind erosion as many of the monuments supposedly built around its time even with the same limestone I do not see why Egyptoligist need evidence for earlier civilization to believe it You can not just dig anywhere and find an artifact you know these things take time Also I dont believe you really need that evidence it is all infront of your face Network TV so what Yes maybe it was meant for entertainment but it was also meant to get their point across More people will watch the Network stations than the learning channel or something This does not mean anything The opposers also mention the weathering on the Sphinx How come the paws dont have as much weathering Easy The paws were buried under sand for a long time which hid them from wind erosion You can trust this man He has had many others
