Also, interestingly, the shape of their huts....

This link will tell you pretty much what you need to know. Also I read that Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the first that uncovered it then it was left alone to be covered with sand again then someone els took it over. Heres the link..

Sorry if I missed it - I didn't read every post in this thread - but what's up with the dude in the box in Mongolia?

I did giggle at the Benin guys with boners.

...and did anyone notice the UFO in the Eiffel Tower photo (to the left of the tower)? Maybe a ball-shaped object with some jet exhaust? Or a photographic smudge?

Man, I could spend a long time checking these out. I mean, it's wierd, I know intellectually that "color" has always existed but I never think of the early b&w photography era as having colors since I only see b&w photos of that time. It's cool to see the color there. I know it doesn't make sense but it's almost like a time machine to me or something. You get some data from a time that you could never get before.

The photos are marked as being copyright of this guy's museum. anyone know if it still exists? I'd like to see all the photos and any documentation. I forsee a lot of days spent staring at the monitor.

---Oh wait. The dude in a box is a girl. And she's been sentenced to death by starvation according to Nat Geo. Wow. That must be why she's reaching desparately for the lock.

edit - nevermind about his museum. Found it.

This is weird but I had a dream once that the paws of the sphinx were actually much deeper then shown and that they went down another 20-40 feet just a rough guess for it was a dream, and they worked as a walk way to a lower chamber. I know that is far fetched I've always just remember that dream very vividly.

Thank you everyone for making this a great thread

theres a myth/rumor that theres an underground chamber under the right paw with a stash of mystery stuff.

also rumored that they have been secretly emptying it.

your dream might have something to it.

Their was doorway in the center of the paws way deeper then what is uncovered today, the sphinx looked like a temple in my dream. The doorway was right in the middle of the paws. I don't think much of it for i'm not big into the saying "well what if"

so I wanted to find a picture that looked like the sphinx in my dream. and here is as close as i can come to finding a good picture.

here is the article that was with the picture

Because this website was soooooooo Good I've made another thread to read about and talk about the information and idea's within the website.

it is a must read website for any conspiracy theorist

just reminds me how terrible the last decade has been, maybe worse than the 80's

What gets me about the Sphinx is that people claim there is a library of forgotten knowledge under the Sphinx's paws...... Seems there was no paws until after the 1900's.
If (and I mean IF) the excavated the paws later outa the sand like some say, how in the h did those big ol' things break off? Im looking at them side by side and you can see that the stone is even differant and the headdress has been touched up as well.

It also has less water erosion running down its face. very strang indeed. Star and Flag, very nice photos thanks for sharing.

a testimony on how great the old people were! no aliens, no magik... just thousands of years of builders. bravo, and whats next?

I took notice of the then and now pictures- a hint:

Count the ridges on the front of the Sphinx in the then and now pics. The pics taken with paws show one extra ridge above the ground.

Great post, one of the best yet. To think ALL of the people in those photos have passed on.

These pictures kind of remind me of the early 1900s photographs from Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii in Russia, all cataloged here:

There is a ghost in the picture of Ireland. The one with the three boys and the mom. There is two houses and one has grass growing on top. To the left looks like a transparent little boy. Could be a mess up but i prefer the paranormal excuse. Could someone please post that picture as i don't know how to do that.

Those are great pictures (well, except for the mongolia one, thats awful
When i was a little kid (younger than 5) i always thought that back then the world WAS black & white and colour popped later just into our world

If your think about how old those pictures are, but for example in the more rural parts of Sri Lanka it's still the same as in that picture.

I found these pictures very enjoyable, thanks for posting them.

It's funny to see color photos taken around 100 years ago. Just think how much information about our period of time (now) there'll be in a 100 years. They'll not only have HD color photos, but HD (and even 3D) video too.

All it takes is 50 years for the sand to cover up til the neck.
