A New geological study shows that the great sphinx of Giza is 800,000 Years old
The Great Sphinx on the Giza plateau in Egypt is one of the most mysterious and enigmatic monuments on the planet’s surface.
It is an ancient structure that has baffled investigators since its discovery, and no one has been able to accurately date the Sphinx because there are no written records or reports of it in the past.
Now, two Ukrainian researchers have suggested a new controversial theory, claiming that the Great Sphinx of Egypt is about 800,000 years old. A scientifically based revolutionary theory.
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.
The authors of this paper are scientists Manichev Vjacheslav I. (Institute of Environmental Geochemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) and Alexander G. Parkhomenko (Institute of Geography of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).
The starting point of these two experts is the paradigm shift initiated by West and Schoch, a ‘debate’ intended to overcome the orthodox view of Egyptology referring to the possible remote origins of the Egyptian civilization and, on the other, physical evidence of water erosion present at the monuments of the Giza Plateau.
I’ll need to see the math on this.
Not feeling this one, sorry.
Someone’s been messing with Mr. Peabody’s wayback machine.
What’s next- they didn’t brew their own beer!
Boy was I off. I guessed that the Great Sphinx was about 8,000,000 years old.
The rock may be that old but all other claims are extremely doubtful.
The rocks may be that old. The assembly; not so much.
More hit and run clickbait?
I’m Schoched. Schoched I tell you!
Stupid. Just stupid.
Yeah, that is real science. (Is a sarcasm tag really required?)
Jack O’Neal and Daniel Jackson disagree.
You got it. OP is a newbie with an in-forum history of nothing but “1 of’s”. Where’s Gumble Hunner when ya need him?
Ancient Archie-lies again
My thoughts as well. Old rocks, newer statue on top of the original.
Fashion fads must have changed slowly during that million years. The Sphinx looks adorned in the ancient Egyptian manner.
I’ve read on some other kook website (not yours, but a different kook site) that it is 8 BILLION years old, or some 3-1/2 billion years older than the Earth itself!
