So basically you are saying that they are wrong...
Well they studied the Sphinx and the pyramids for several years, and came to the conclusion, backed up by dozens of facts, that the pyramids are much
older than what has been accepted by egyptologists. As you said, the astronomical theory that they came up with is mind blowing, but correct.
There are no real fact ever found that tell that the Giza pyramids were build for Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. Just because they found a couple of
artifacts referring to them near the pyramids doesn't automatically mean that the pyramids were build especially for them.
Bauval and Hancock believe that the praids were build much earlier, and that a couple of thousand years later, the Pharao's used them for burial
Many historians belive that the Sphinx was build escpecially for the Pharao Khafre. And that its face resemble's his face.
Another quote from their book:
As a man who knows and works with faces every day of his professional life, he was commisioned to make a detailed study of the points of similarity
and difference between the Sphinx and the Khafre statue. Months later, after returning to his lab in New York where he undertook careful comparisons
of hundreds of photographs of the two works, Domingo reported:
After reviewing my various drawings, scematics and measurements, my final conclusion with my initial reaction, i.e. that the two works represent two
seperate individuals. The proportions in the frontal view, and especially the angles and facial protrusion in the lateral views convinced me that the
Sphinx is not Khafre..."
So on the one hand we have a top forensic expert, Frank Domongi, telling us that the Sphinx's face does not represent Khafre's face. And on the
other we have Mark Lehner, the Egyptologist computer buff, saying that only with Khafre's face does the Sphinx 'came alive'.
The Egyptologists accepted that the pyramids were build for the Pharao's, but have no real evidense to prove that theory.
There is no proof that the pyramids were build around 2000 BC.
There is no proof that the pyramids were build for the Pharao's.
There is no proof that the Sphinx was build for Khafre.
But still everybody believes the pyriamids were build by hte Egyptians for their pharao's around 4000 untill 2000 BC...
Zahi Hawass said this about one of the professional scientists that were working with Hancock on the study of the water erosion of the Sphinx:
Amarican hallucinations! West is an amateur. There is absolutely no scientific base for any of this. We have older monuments in the same area.They
deffinately weren't built by men form space of from atlantis. it's nonsense and we won't allow our monumnets to be expoloited for personal
enrichment. The sphinx is the soul of Egypt.
To me he sounds quite like the former Iraqi minister of information...
This was on the page before:
It was at this crusial moment, while the members of the team were putting together the first independent geological profile of the sphinx, that Dr.
Zahi Hawass, the Egyptian Antiques Organization's Director-General of the Giza Pyramids, fell upon them, suddenly and unexpectedly, like the
proverbial ton of bricks.
The team has obtained their permission from Dr. Igrahim Bakr, then the President of the Egyptian Antiques Orginazation. What they had not known,
however, was that the relation between Bakr and Hawass were frosty. Neither had they reckoned with Hawass's energy and ego. Fuming that he had been
bypassed by his superios, he accused the Americans of tampering with the monuments.
it almost seems like Hawass doesn't want to have an independant research on the Sphinx history...
