Some years ago I attended a presentation at BCC. The presenter was showing off his brand new Toshiba lap top and telling everybody that he held in his hand more computing power than the total computing power that NASA had the day Apollo 11 landed on the moon, etc. He was running Redshift and showing the whats and wheres that currently known stars, etc were in the night sky in the distant past, etc. He talked about the layout of the Giza pyramids and how they were mapped exactly to Orion's Belt. Ya, sure but, they don't exactly match Orion. Well, yes they do, 12,500 years ago, etc!

Interesting video.

However, there is extensive erosion of the body of the sphinx, but not on the paws of it?

How, then, can they say that it was made 25K years ago?

Was it eroded, then carved? Or carved, then eroded?

No, the paws have been "repaired". The one thing is that there are some very old repairs that date back to around 2500BC. OK, but, , , , if the Egyptians built the Sphinx "around" 2500BC, wasn't it "brand new" in 2500BC? Why would it need repairs?

The interesting thing about the "erosion' is that even a beginning BS in geology, without knowing any "history", can walk up to the Sphinx and tell you that the erosion is from rain/water. The first archeologists/geologists that stated that the erosion was from water, and not from "wind blown sand", were darn near tarred and feathered and run-out-of-town. Talk like that about the Sphinx, and some other architecturally disconnected buildings there, imply that the Egyptians "moved in" to existing structures and did not actually build much!
