Limestone tends to have water eroded holes in it, there probably are some holes under the Sphinx - as is much of that limestone plateau. What Zahi
found was that there were holes but with no connection to the surface (I'm doing this from memory so I'll stand by to be corrected if anyone can
come up with the actual report).
As to the link you provided some comments about the blatantly false story about Hibbens.
n a 1936 expedition in Sandia Cave, a cave in the Sandia Mountains, experienced archeologist Wesley Bliss excavated the Sandia Cave and reported his
findings to University of New Mexico project head Dr. Brand. Another student Frank C. Hibben who was not involved in the initial excavation, but
rather later work in the cave; he later reported to have found the famous Sandia spearpoint beneath a layer of material dating greater than 25,000
years old, along with the bones of camels, mastadons, and prehistoric horses. However the bones (carbon dating from 14,000-20,000 years ago
(16,000-14,000 BCE) and together with his incacurate identification of the historical sedimentary layers and the published notes of Bliss and others
in reference to the poor layer integrity and contamination associated with rodent burrowing, the supposed spearpoint from the suggested 25,000 year
old sedimentary layer was erroneously reported by Hibben. Ref. A Chronological Problem Presented by Sandia Cave, New Mexico. American Antiquity, 1940a
5(3):200-201. Ref. Sandia Cave. Correspondence in American Antiquity, 1940b 6(1):77-78.
Frank Hibben's publication of the Clovis point as dated older than 25,000 years ago is used as some of the strongest evidence for the existence of a
pre-Folsom culture in North America (as contended by the authors of the controversial Forbidden Archaeology). However, his papers were false
representations of the initial excavation work of Dr. Wesley Bliss, who noted the proper layers, and the poor layer integrity in areas, among other
findings that were erroneously misconstrued and reported by Frank Hibben to meet his theory. Dr. Bliss did not find any of the spearpoints in the
layers reported later by Hibben. It is now believed that the spearpoints were not as old as was originally reported by Hibben, and it is believed that
Hibben's sloppy work and false testament to man's history in North America has greatly hindered the accuracy of our understanding of prehistoric
North America. Frank Hibben's was generously rewarded for this false work, which assisted him greatly in starting his famous and impressive career,
supported by the University of New Mexico. However a coverup of the errors in Hibben's work ensued for 60 years, until it has finally been openly
acknowledged and reported. Ref. The Mystery of Sandia Cave. New Yorker, 71(16):66-83
As noted above Hibben's career wasn't destroyed at all
Hibben's honored at University of New Mexico
