The Great Sphinx
Some ancient astronaut theorists believe that one of the great wonders of the world can reveal a hall of records providing great secrets of human and extraterrestrial existence which is said to be hidden underneath the right paw of the Sphinx. The Egyptian government has prohibited the exploration of the land directly underneath the paw, so for the time being the secrets remain hidden.
The dating of the Sphinx is controversial in its self. Some believe that it was built more than 12,500 years ago. What is known is that it is the largest Monolithic structure on Earth located a mile away from the great pyramid. It is carved from a single piece of limestone measuring some 240 feet (73 metres) long and 66 feet (20metres) high. It faces directly from West to East.
According to Edward Cayce (a self-professed clairvoyant 1877-1945) who claimed to be a high priest from ancient Egypt, the Sphinx was somehow connected to the lost city of Atlantis.
The Sphinx was buried in sand up to its shoulders until the early 1800’s when a Genoese adventurer named Capt. Giovanni Cavigila attempted to dig out the statue with a team of 160 men although it was not successfully excavated in the 19th and 20th century. Finally in the 1930,s Egyptian archaeologist Selim Hassan managed to finally free the Sphinx from the sand. The face of the great Sphinx was damaged by Napoleons troops, who shot off the nose with a cannon.
Some may argue that the great Sphinx was the product of thousands of hours of work by ancient Egyptians, but then who created the sister Sphinx located on Mars which was photographed by NASA’s Curiosity Rover?
