Well, even Edgar Cayce said that the core of the Sphynx and the location of the Pyramids and Egyptian-Atlantean culture goes back to a time when Egypt
was very marshy and green, around 11,000 BC during the last period of glacial melting..
It is evident that the face of the Sphynx was once a LION (and much larger with a mane) and not a Pharaonic face complete with a beard, but as the
sands encroached on the Giza plateau AFTER 5,000 BC the body of the Sphynx seems to have been nearly completely buried up to its mane-neck (i.e. by
2,500 BC) in sand and thus was whittled down for centruries by dry wind erosion (perhaps for longer than 1000 years or so) before some later Pharaoh
came along, dug the buried body of the Sphynx out of the sand, then proceeded to "re-carve the nub" of the now disfigured Lion's Head with his own
face in its place---notice how jutting out and disproportionate the face is from the body (and its odd angle) as well as the tiny size of the head in
relation to the larger lion body----which shows that the present Pharaonic head on the Sphinx is not original buyt a later and somehwat desperate
attempt at a re-carving an older monument into something the pharaoh wanted to take credit for----as it was originally clearly some other shape than a
man's head...almost certainly a Lion's Head which originally was facing the constellation Leo in approx 9,000 BC
It could also be that even though the Pyramids we see today were built some time around 2300 BC (around the same time as StoneHenge in Britain) they
might have been LOCATED ON TOP OF A MORE ANCIENT sacred spot which used to have temples alligned the same way on it i.e. with sacred allignments with
with certain constellations from a much earlier period.
Certainly the older, inner core of the Sphynx curiously (and IMPOSSIBLY!) shows clear signs of 'rain-water damage' from at least 1000 years of heavy
pounding rains (as does the so-called Sphynx Limestone Enclosure made of 9 tonne carved limestone blocks), whereas the repairs done to the outside if
the Sphynx are later (along with the recarved smallish Pharaoh-head) shows wind and dry-sand erosion from a later period (e.g. BC 3000 to today) and
thus the more ancient parts of the Giza plateau may well have remnants of far older structures going back to at least 8,000 BC when Egypt was wetter
Most Egyptologists however are VERY RELUCTANT to re-date Egyptian history or relate anything that old to the first Egyptian period, since it would
mean that for the past 150 years, all their assumptions about the beginnings of Egyptian Civilisation was based on faulty information and
And archaelogists and anthropologists don't like that too much...especially if they've been publishing books touting their own theories...and it is
hard to retract once one has published in hard print....sort of like un-ringing a bell...!
