mystery continues
14 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

The mystery of the sphinx continues. See Supernatural Science (1999) episode Monumental Mysteries and Wikipedia (2010). Geology and Egyptology remain at loggerheads 17 years after Mystery of the Sphinx was released.

The geological claims -- which I won't specify to avoid spoiling -- still stand. And the Egyptologists' objections also remain valid.

The final 1/5 of the DVD is embarrassing rubbish about Mars and Atlantis, but the central tenet remains fascinating. And the geologist is accredited to Boston University. If anyone ever solves this mystery, it will be headline news.

if you compare the erosion on the sphinx face to the erosion on its flanks, it becomes obvious the the face was sculpted thousands of years more recently than the body. so the face was re-carved -- perhaps from the head of a lion -- to the head of a 4th dynasty pharoah. but the main point of the documentary is far more sensational than that.
