Geological Evidence Shows the Great Sphinx is 800,000 Years Old

The following article details material evidence that could disprove the accepted age of the Sphinx at Giza.

Modern Egyptology asserts that the Sphinx was built during the time of Khufu of the old kingdom

Khufu probably just renovated the ancient pyramid site for his own purposes. Similarly the age of the Sphinx is most likely much older than the accepted date.

What the team found were erosion patterns on the Sphinx and surrounding rock face that could only have been caused by water, as they asserted. A geologist that has studied similar patterns all over the world drew this conclusion. Further stating the only time in history when the Giza plateau had sufficient water to cause this was at least 10,000 years ago. No further study was permitted, leaving many unanswered questions.

More recently, two Ukrainian researchers have preposed a new date for the age of the Sphinx based on similar research. However, this team asserts that the age of the Sphinx could be as old as 800,000 years.

This date builds off similar lines of study, searching for possible a cause for the water erosion. Apparently there were several large freshwater lakes close to the Giza plateau, which emptied out in presumably cataclysmic events strong enough to create the patterns observed.

If the age of 800,000 years old is verified by further research, this finding could completely change history, as we know it. Most likely the established powers in academia that are invested in the existing paradigm will do everything in their power to stop this theory from being verified.

One of the most mysterious and enigmatic monuments on the surface of the planet is without a doubt the Great Sphinx at the Giza plateau in Egypt. It is an ancient construction that has baffled researchers ever since its discovery and until today, no one has been able to accurately date the Sphinx, since there are no written records or mentions in the past about it. Now, two Ukrainian researchers have proposed a new provocative theory where the two scientists propose that the Great Sphinx of Egypt is around 800,000 years old. A Revolutionary theory that is backed up by science.

The study was presented at the International Conference of Geoarchaeology and Archaeomineralogy held in Sofia titled: GEOLOGICAL ASPECT OF THE PROBLEM OF DATING THE GREAT EGYPTIAN SPHINX CONSTRUCTION.

Manichev and Parkhomenko firmly believe that the Sphinx had to be submerged for a long time under water and, to support this hypothesis, they point towards existing literature of geological studies of the Giza Plateau. According to these studies at the end of the Pliocene geologic period (between 5.2 and 1.6 million years ago), sea water entered the Nile valley and gradually creating flooding in the area. This led to formation of lacustrine deposits which are at the mark of 180 m above the present level of the Mediterranean Sea.

According to Manichev and Parkhomenko, it is the sea level during the Calabrian phase which is the closest to the present mark with the highest GES hollow at its level. High level of sea water also caused the Nile overflowing and created long-living water-bodies. As to time it corresponds to 800000 years.

Some might say that the theory proposed by Manichev and Parkhomenko is very extreme because it places the Great Sphinx in an era where there were no humans, according to currently accepted evolutionary patterns. Furthermore, as it has been demonstrated, the two megalithic temples, located adjacent to the Great Sphinx were built by the same stone which means that the new dating of the Sphinx drags these monuments with the Sphinx back 800,000 years. In other words, this means that ancient civilizations inhabited our planet much longer than mainstream scientists are willing to accept.
