Evidence of Civilizations Predating Our Recorded History (part 2)
Summary of Part 1
In my last blog, I explained my belief that the Sphinx was older than it is currently presumed to be. In fact, I proposed that it is at least 1,000 or more years older based on the weathering of the base structure. However, many people suggest it is much older than my simple estimation.
If you recall, I documented that Pharaoh Thutmose IV uncovered the Sphinx around 1450 BC. He also has his name (cartouche) stamped on a mud brick wall surrounding the Sphinx complex. Clearly, he did not build the Sphinx but uncovered it.
The Great Sphinx was old even before Khufu ruled
An ancient stone tablet called the Inventory Stela documents that the Sphinx was ancient and that Khufu found (discovered) and restored the Sphinx. Currently, mainstream Egyptologists believe the face on the Sphinx to be that of Khafre (Kharfa).
In the last episode, I presented a video that proves, structurally, it could not be Khafre. There is evidence that it is actually Thutmose IV. Whoever it is, this is obviously not the original face on the monument. Just by looking at the figure, you can see a major difference in the erosion of the head and the body.
A video I presented in Part 1 identifies erosion patterns that are consistent with heavy presentment water damage but the head does not reflect any water-related weathering. The ancient Egyptians were very pedantic regarding building structures and statues that were proportionate, and the head of the Sphinx is obviously not. Not only was the head disproportionately smaller than the body but significantly smaller than the original neck of the supposed Pharaoh.
An alternative carving on the Great Sphinx
If the head on the shrine was not the original face, who or what was its original image? The Sphinx is facing the rising sun on the spring equinox symbolizing rebirth or resurrection. Since it was ancient at the time of Khufu, (2500 BC), it would have predated the time when Osiris was worshiped as the god of the resurrection (fifth dynasty). Could this have been the face of Anubis, the god of resurrection? According to Wikipedia Anubis was associated with the afterlife in ancient Egypt 3100 BC but was replaced by Osiris by the Middle Kingdom.
Here are two videos that support the concept that the original image of the Sphinx was that of Anubis as shown in the photo above.
If the information we have just reviewed is to be believed, the Sphinx is much older than we thought. But we have no information about the people who carved or constructed it. And if it was buried then reclaimed by Khufu as suggested in the “Inventory Stela”, how old can it be.
The Great Pyramid is older than Khufu
We are told that Khufu built the Great Pyramid and this is also discredited in the Inventory Stela, which relates the pyramid built by Khufu as being equal in stature to that of his daughter. Additionally, the Great Pyramid was built without any paintings or hieroglyphics documenting who was interred within. The known ancient Kingdoms (Old – 2686 to 2181 BC, Middle – 2181 to 2055 BC, and the New – 2055 – 1650 BC) were very adept at publishing their works and making sure everything they did was documented. Kings had their life painted on the walls of their tombs.
But there is very little written about the construction of the pyramids and absolutely nothing in the supposed Kings Chamber and the Queens Chamber of the Great Pyramid. Unlike the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, the few rooms in the Great Pyramid are completely void of any writing or paintings normally associated with a burial tomb. In fact, the vessel in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid is not in the center of the room (which one would expect for a King’s burial crypt) but near one wall with no ornamentation.
And the granite box in the “Kings Chamber” was not a sarcophagus nor something that would hold a sarcophagus, much less the eternal remains of someone as renowned as the great Khufu. If it was not a crypt for a king, what was it?
Evidence of advanced stone cutting tools
We are told that the great stones used to build the Great Pyramid were cut by hand using stone mallets and copper or bronze chisels. But some of the stones are not soft limestone but granite and are impossible to work with copper or bronze. And some of these stones show evidence of advanced machinery to cut or work the stones.
We see corner angles, chamfer cuts, and fillets (interior rounded cuts) that would require very advanced machinery. Some of the hard granite stones have boreholes that have circular striations indicative of a mechanical boring tool and some stones that are definitely circular in nature but would require a cutting wheel that is 30 feet (~10 meters) in diameter and about ¼ inch (0.6 cm) in width.
If the Egyptians had this capability, why was it not passed down to succeeding generations? You can see some of the stone workings that require advanced equipment at minute 7 of the video “Rethinking: Egypt”. You may also want to watch the companion video “Rethinking Egypt: Update”.
Instead, all this leads to the possibility of a higher intelligence constructing these structures thousands of years before the Old Kingdom. Could there have been a civilization on earth that is older than the Egyptians of the Early Dynastic Period? We know the Ancient Sumerians emerged around 4000 BC but their hero, Gilgamesh supposedly survived a great flood. But they did not have the knowledge we are trying to find. If the flood that Gilgamesh survived was a global catastrophe, it could explain why the ancient knowledge did not survive and only simple tools were available once humans started to thrive again.
What was the cause of this catastrophe and did all civilizations meet the same fate? We see similar patterns in the decline of construction techniques all around the world. This catastrophic event destroyed the civilization and it has taken mankind this long to approach the abilities present in the building of the great pyramid, the stone walls of Peru, the ancient temples in Mexico, and many other ancient sites around the world.
I will describe some of these other sites in future reports.
