I have always been fascinated with the unexplained, to this date i would have probably read hundreds of articles regarding it. Upon stumbling to this picture of the sphinx, i was able to remember one of the articles i have read before. It actually claims that the sphinx contains the answers to the mystery of the great pyramids. And there is a secret gateway into the inside of the sphynx, and according to the article this door can be opened by accessing a kind of switch located near either side of the hea...

The door myth, is exactly what its called- a myth, but they have used sensors and they got back very weird responses, which they took to mean that there is something inside, or its hollow! And I do beleive another being either motivated, inspired or actually came down from another planet and helped them with the building, there are even caves that have absolutely no burn marks on the walls, and when they checked the hyroglyphics they seemed to suggest that a type of light bulb was used to generate light...

I've read how there are scrolls and engravings that suggest that there was a chamber under it's feet. An archeologist once shot sonar into the ground all around the sphinx and indeed found a room beneath. I also read that another race helped them, but it was suggested that this other race was from the famed Atlantis and that the secrets of Atlantis were buried at the feet of the Great Sphinx. This Archeologist tried to get the permission in order to excavate but the Egyptians refused saying that digging ...

(continued) would harm the Sphinx. I think that the Egyptians are just afraid to find out that they never did really build the Sphinx or the Pyramids. Though if they did dig....and they did find this room with all it's secrets and connected it to this superior race (Atlantis) I believe that Egypt would benifit. I mean their culture would be directly tied to this ancient Race of super humans...Egypt would be indispensable!!!!!

The geologist Robert Schock has surprised a lot of people by stating the weathering patterns indicate a lot of rain, meaning it was standing for several thousand years before Egyptologists thought, back when the area received much more rain. Egyptology is a very "closed science", meaning they don't like outsiders, don't accept new ideas, and all new finds are made to fit into their predetermined history, whether it makes sense or not.

even the idea that the pyramids were tombs is very circumstantial

wonder how long it took to make that!

How could the people of Atlantis have built the sphinx? Atlantis was located in the modern-day Bermuda Triangle. It's most likely that the people of Atlantis weren't even aware of the existence of Egypt.
