I will add "knowing how science works" to the list of things you have shown you don't understand in this thread

You can add whatever you want to that list, but do keep in mind that this is a conspiracy board rather than a science forum.

So let's ignore what science says in favor of a juicy, but erroneous, conspiracy theory.

What's irratating about that link is that L. Orcutt says Schoch fails to consider the different strata the Sphinx is made of, whereas the distinction is clearly made in his analysis of geological data. Did he even read Schoch's essays? Again, I still don't see how his hypothesis is refuted given the erosion patterns on the enclosure and body of the Sphinx, suggesting an earlier date of construction.

Schoch doesn't use any patterns of any erosion anywhere to arrive at his estimated date.

I told you this already.

Will you continue to refuse to carefully read Schoch's paper?
If so, why should we listen to what you have to say about a paper you won't even read?

Not at all, but where's the supporting evidence for the current dating of the Great Sphinx?

Think what you want, but he's quite clear about what he means by precipitation-induced weathering. And he certainly does refer to erosional features that, in his view, can't be accounted for by only a few centuries of precipitation preceeding the 5000 years of arid desert climate in the region.

Does the riddle of the Sphinx date back as far as the monument?
How do we know Oedipus answered the riddle correctly?
What if a "man" in his prime doesn't gain 34 Lbs before old age, does he still need to use a cane?
Is it misandry to believe only men gain weight when they age?

Here's his data. The data he used to give his estimate of the possible age of the sphinx.:

Here's his original paper. link

Scroll down to the section titled "Seismic surveys of the Sphinx area" to see where he gets his date.

This is because even Schoch knows that the way erosion looks has more to do with the morphology of the stone bed than it has to do with what kind of erosion took place.

Secondly, even Schoch was aware that at the time not not nearly enough was known about the climate during that period for the area and thus there was no way to tie a date to any water erosion anyway.

In fact, since Schoch published his idea, it's been found that the period was wetter than was previously thought.

'The revelation of the pyramids' is a great documentary which also explores these mysteries. I shared it on ATS a few months ago. It is a fascinating watch with some great narrating by Actor Brian Cox from the bourne trilogy.

Actually, the ancients didn't have to use unknown (to them) equations and ratios to find pi. All they had to do was divide the whole number 355 by 113.


1,3,5 are western Arabic symbols.
A closer approximation of Pi was hinted at by Homer 700 BC

Omar khayam, the Norse legend of the final battle of Ragnarok, and the Mona Lisa were created after the adoption of Arabic numerals. Notice both eastern and western arabic numerals have the same symbol for "9"?
