Yes, it is significantly eroded under the restorations.

I knew it went live in 99. I was just trying to call those members out with their attempts at lying lol

I remember you quite well in the early days! I joined in 2003 myself, and made a new account in 2004. You had quite the presence then, Byrd! Not that you don't now...just you seemed to be the sole voice of reason and authority of knowledge on many topics for quite some time. ATS has changed so much since its genesis.

Oh how I love the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
Especially some of the artwork upon some of the walls within its tombs, chambers and pyramids.
They obviously depict a race far superior to ourselves or indeed Mankind.

Perhaps far superior to you.
The rest of us? Not so much.

Just a curious question, what do you think the purpose was to build tombs and temples in the middle of the desert`?

To add to the Byrd QA


Do you think there is merit to The Great Sphinx of Giza having been built on top an existing structure (like one of a lion)?


No.

It's been rebuilt a number of times, however (at least 2-3 times in antiquity). Forgive a clicky-link, but here's a picture showing the extent of the many repairs. BTW, if you're standing by the Sphinx (as I was) with that diagram in hand (as I was) then it's actually easy to spot the repairs.

It's been prodded, poked, dug under, etc, etc, since antiquity. It's probably a miracle that Belzoni or one of that era didn't dynamite the poor thing to 'find a treasure'.

Actually, Vyse DID use black powder on the sphinx. He was drilling a hole in the back (on top) and his drill got stuck. He tried to blow it out.
It didn't work and the bit was stuck there until Zahi Hawass got it out a couple of decades ago.

Cool find, with royal tombs, tools and utensils. This city that is called Abydos is located off Nile is though to be one of the earliest capitols of the Egyptian empire.


They uncovered houses, tools, utensils and at least 15 elaborate tombs belonging to royals.
Looks like on Thanksgiving a great find wa uneathed on the very close to the Nile. It is a very old site with tombs and could have been the part of the first capitol of earliest Egyptian empires.

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced it excavated parts of Abydos, a “lost city” they believe dates back to 5,316 BCE and could have been part of the first capital of one of the earliest Egyptian empires. So far at the dig site, the team has uncovered fragments and remnants of houses, tools, utensils and at least 15 elaborate tombs belonging to royals.



This discovery is so important because the appears to be the beginning of Egyptian history.



The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced it excavated parts of Abydos.

This city was found just 400 meters (0.25 miles) from the Temple of Seti I in the sacred city of Abyd. Experts are already coming out to comment on the find, saying it’s so important because it appears to be the beginning of Egyptian history.

Ancient Egyptian culture according to the Ancient Egyptians, The ancient Greeks and other cultures is around 17,000 years old. I have no reference for that but if you look into you will find the same thing.

If you'll check, you'll find that you've added some zeroes.

Greece wasn't well inhabited (mostly rocks and mountains) until around 7,000 BC (same as other Mediterranean groups) and doesn't take off until the Minoans spread their technology to the mainland.

What we think of as "ancient Greece" is actually the classical Greek period, from about 1100 BC to around 150 BC - not so ancient at all.

Here's an example - the AE's were crawling with parasitic worms. Google it yourself - it's called Schistosomiasis.

a reply to: Byrd This is a repost--I meant to make two comments not one but this is the one I wanted to direct at yourself....I've been offline for a while but coming back on and remember you and Harte

Byrd----Pardon the question.....but I am curious....with respect to the Sphinx....you don't think it's possible it's a marker from the time when Leo was the North Star? I read about this and the water erosion.....

Have you heard anything about Gunung Padang? Again...I am asking cause I consider myself a skeptic who believes in the possibility of an ancient culture
