Unrevealed Truth of The Lost Civilization Behind the Sphinx of Egypt
For years, Egyptologists and archaeologists have considered the Great Sphinx of egypt Giza to be about 4,500 years old, which is around 2500 BCE. But that number is just that – a belief, a theory, not a fact.
As Robert Bouval states in The Age of the Sphinx, “there was no inscription – not even one – either carved on a wall or a stela or written on papyri thralls associating the Sphinx with this time period.
What do traditional Egyptologists say about these theories?
More traditional Egyptologists reject these ideas for several reasons. First, a Sphinx of Egypt was built before 7000 BC. Our understanding of the ancient civilization would be troubled, as there is no evidence of an Egyptian civilization this old.
Furthermore, these new theories focus only on a specific type of erosion and ignore other evidence that would support an age of 4,500 years. Of these: The Sphinx is a rapidly weathering structure, much older than it is.
The erosion pattern could have arisen from subsurface water drainage or Nile flooding, and the Sphinx is thought to be similar to Khyre, the pharaoh, who built one of the nearby pyramids at Giza. He lived approximately 2603–2578 BCE.
It is exciting to consider the existence of an unknown civilization that predates the ancient Egyptians, but most archaeologists and geologists still favor the traditional view that the Sphinx is approximately 4,500 years old.
