Here's something for y'all ATSers to chew on.
, dug out in Germany and ascribed to the Aurignacian culture
has been dated to be around 40 000 years old.
Well, that`s it, basically. I think its a delicious find because we're still debating whether Sphinxes are a couple thousand of years old or "much
older" as some of the fringe-ancient-astronaut-antediluvian-crowd say.
And just to remind you that the Sphinx is not limited to Egypt, here are a few more from around the world. They usually show up as lions with human
faces but sometimes the mixes are with other animals.
Some of the oldest lion-men can be found on Hindu Temples. Quoting our Internet Encyclopedia:
A composite mythological being with the body of a lion and the head of a human being is present in the traditions, mythology and art of South and
South-East Asia Variously known as purushamriga (Sanskrit, "man-beast"), purushamirugam (Tamil, "man-beast"), naravirala (Sanskrit,
"man-cat") in India, or as nara-simha (Sanskrit, "man-lion") in Sri Lanka, manusiha or manuthiha (Pali, "man-lion") in Myanmar, and norasingh
(from Pali, "man-lion", a variation of the Sanskrit "nara-simha") or thep norasingh ("man-lion deity"), or nora nair in Thailand.
A Hindu sample of a "man-beast":
A Sumerian Hybrid:
The Celtic Sphinx:
An Anatolian Sphinx:
I could go on and on but these are enough to make the point.
So ATS, what do you think? Are they fictitious figures, as our academic establishment thinks? Or did they really exist? Were they genetically
engineered hybrids? Or supernatural beasts? Was the mixing of "the Gods" and humans a reason humanity was wiped out with a flood? Or is this all
just symbolic of something else we don't understand or know yet? The possibilities are endless.
