Sorry Amenesis, The wind is not a good explanation. They are grasping at straws there.
What is so hard to understand about cosmic debris being the cause?
I could understand it better if there was evidence supporting that theory but there isn't. (baiting you)
There is however, evidence supporting the wind scape theory. (more bait)
I suppose I could ask the same question to you; what is so hard to understand about the wind shaping a sandy landscape? Did you read about the perma-frost slumping as well? How about the sedimntary analysys?
John O'Shea, curator of Great Lakes Archaeology in the Museum of Anthropology and professor in the Department of Anthropology speaking :
“I've said it before and I'll say it again...we are surrounded by wonders and discoveries right here in our own back yards. New species to be found, new eco-systems to be discovered, new portions of our history to be unearthed.
This discovery was made possible through increased efforts by the Federal Government to map and explore the Great Lakes. We've inhabited this region for over a quarter of a millennium and we're JUST starting to peer deeper into what's going on in the Great Lakes, thanks in part to modern technology, but even more importantly a renewed will to do so.”

Hmmm... I have to agree that I see no evidence that these are remnants of ancient civilizations.
Pangaea theory is pretty sound, these locations are way out in the middle of places which have been oceans for millions of years, well before any civilization existed. If we were to look for lost civilizations we should be looking in the more shallow waters surrounding the continents where a civilization may have flourished when the water table was lower, or when there was more landmass before it eroded away or collapsed from earthquakes or tsunamis.

I do think the main reason we don't find evidence of any other civilizations is that we are looking in the wrong places. .... Very ancient man would have built either along the Ocean coastline or near the delta's of rivers as they flowed into the ocean. Being that sea levels were much lower 10,000 years ago, it stands to reason that those civilizations are now underwater and covered with layers of silt/sand.
Technically, it wasn't water it was sand during dust storms that have been demonstrated to show similar erosion marks as rain falling. Being that the sphinx lies in the middle of a desert... well... Duh? I mean, it's the only thing I can conclude.

If that expanding Earth theory were true then any and all claims that the Egyptian pyramids measure the diameter of the Earth exactly as it exists today is pure BS as the Earth would have been smaller in diameter 5000 or even 12000 years ago.
