The sphinx is carved from some lousy limestone bedrock. Temples and pyramids in the area are not made of stone from those same crappy layers.For me the complex was built around the Sphinx, the causeway a perfect viewing platform of the ancient monument already in situ. The Sphinx has suffered heavy rainfall erosion from a time when the climate in Egypt was much wetter. Erosion that the rest of the complex does not have.
You can either take my word for this, or look it up yourself.
Please present your Geology credentials to back up your assertion that any erosion at all on the sphinx has occurred due to rain.
The Sphinx is not in the way of the causeway. A temple to the north of the sphinx prevented construction of a straight causeway to Khafre's pyramid.
Care to comment on my question? Why does the sphinx enclosure match Khafre's causeway along the south side? Are you saying Khafre had that part of an old enclosure excavated to match the path of his causeway? It wasn't necessary, you know.
Or, are you saying that Khafre's pyramid predates the Egyptian Civilization?
Old maps? They also say "Here there be monsters." Seen any monsters?Old maps and descriptions of Atlantis show it as being an island within an island. This is exactly as Santorini appeared before it blew it's top. A crater like circle with a volcanic plume island in the centre. Does Helike fit this island within an island format? I wasn't there, neither were you, just an educated guess as to the origins of Atlantis. My opinion is as valid as yours.
These maps you cite are based on Plato. This is the same guy that doesn't say anything about high tech, and his story has Atlantians invading Egypt, their asses being saved by the Greeks, 10,000 years ago - thousands and thousands of years before either the Greeks or the Egyptians existed as a cohesive culture.
Again, Santorini - 1600 BC. Are you saying that a civilization with high technology existed during a period of time from which we have historical records from several different civilizations in the area?
Even if they were bronze age and not high tech, why don't we have any record of them, you know, the results of their invasion of all the cultures surrounding the Med.? Physical evidence like pottery influences on other cultures, languages, DNA, etc., that we have for all the other cultures they supposedly conquered?
It is easy to recognize that your opinion has no validity, if you would only consider the implications of what you state.
