The sphinx is even older than the pyramids. you can tell that from the erosion on it. It happenned when it was wetter.
Some theories from certain people here suggest we might be the 5th itheration of humanity to exist here.
I have a feeling the elites and those with certain privileged positions within our world have always known about this, and concealed the facts from our collective memories.
These buildings were built to last, and built to convey a message to a recovered, and technological civilisation...the message is; We were like you and we were destroyed by this calamity at this time. Prepare your civilisations, because this is going to happen again.

There are, high up within the interior of the Pyramids, approximately at the level where the upper portions of the casing stones remain (approx two-thirds up the Pyramid), there are layers of 'tide marks' (imagine being filthy, having a bath and seeing the dirt/scum line after emptying the bath water) these are made of sea salt and minerals..the theory being that the water did make it's way into the superstructure either directly flooding it, or over time slowly percolating into the interior of the Pyramids, leaving behind this 'tide mark' once the water levels receded.

It is my strongly-held belief that our species is much, much older and its origins more mysterious than many of us have been lead to believe by conventional wisdom.
And science, it seems, is starting to agree:

If you accept this theory and the cataclysmic implications, it makes the current saga of climate science and its vigorous denial all the more fascinating.
I have to agree the eygptians didn't build them don't see any substantial proof of that. For all the bunkers who roll into this thread incredible claims require incredible proof, so lay out your incredible proof the Eygptians built them.
NOVA: Is there any evidence at all that an ancient civilization predating the civilization of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure was there?
LEHNER: It's a good question. If they were there, you see—civilizations don't disappear without a trace. If archaeologists can go out and dig up a campsite of hunters and gatherers that was occupied 15,000 years ago, there's no way there could have been a complex civilization at a place like Giza or anywhere in the Nile Valley and they didn't leave a trace, because people eat, people poop, people leave their garbage around, and they leave their traces, they leave the traces of humanity.

Read Graham Hancock's fingerprints of the gods. It is incredibly in depth look at the structures of ancient giza. His research there is what led him down the ancient aalienspath, for better or worse.
It covers all of this, with no conclusions, just about 600 pages of evidence.
Another effect would have been the Earth pole shifting, the weight of the water ice suddenly being lifted would have created an imbalance, like a boat at sea loaded with it's cargo shifting from port to starboard, the boat will shift it's position in the water reacting to the change in weight distribution of the cargo...same thing for the millions of tonnes of ice water for the ice sheets.
