How old are the pyramids?
A little more info:
They dated the wood, not the artwork.
An early “Burning Man” prototype.
The actual pdf from ‘Antiquity Journal’:
I don’t believe the pyramids are only 5000 years old either
There is way to much weathering on the sphinx to be that young. And there was much water in the area. That was not there 5000 years ago.
I just recently observed a strange set of lines in africa that look lick ancient civilizations that are long gone
However, wood comes from trees - and trees have a finite lifespan. Different species have different life-spans, but it is not hard to identify which species was used for a particular carving.
The Larch from which this wood carving was made has a +/-350 year lifespan. So, if this artifact was accurately carbon-dated to +/-7,000 years ago, then even if the statue was carved from a Larch tree that was very old at the time the statue was carved, it still puts the age at +/-6,500 years old.
The Palladium at Troy was made of wood.
Oh nooo Mr. Bill!
That's only if you accept mainstream academia's dating of the pyramids.
Egyptologists have asserted for a hundred and fifty years, that the dynastic Egyptians built all of the megalithic structures in that country, but there's never been a shred of hard evidence to support that claim.
On the contrary, all of the hard evidence that exists, points to those structures having been erected by a much older, unknown pre-dynastic culture.
