In Egyptology, many scholars wrote the history of the Pyramids and the Sphinx back in the 1800s and 1900s. We are told it is supposed to stand that way and that we should believe and accept it for its face value.
Although today we have satellite photographs, robots that can crawl in the tunnels of the pyramids, radars and sonar scanning even then if someone comes with a new theory they are rebuked and their challenging the status quo is not appreciated.
Here are a few of the hidden secrets of the Sphinx with evidence from science and history.
The Secrets of the Sphinx
Egyptologists believe that the huge statue at the bank of the river Nile is the Pharaoh Chephren’s head and the body of a lion. The Egyptians built it 4500 years ago.
None of this is true. Here’s why.
Edgar Cayce, a famous American prophet and psychic predicted many things in the 1900s that later came out to be true. He predicted the stock market crash of 1929 and the world war 2. People used to record his predictions on a stenographer while he was asleep.
Edgar prophesized that in the year 1998 we would find evidence beneath the Sphinx that would tell us more about it. He also said that we will find out that it is not 4500 years old but is 10,000 years or even more old, hence, the oldest man-made object in the world.
Edgar also said that beneath the left paw of the Sphinx would be a time capsule, a hall of records with information about the earliest men and the city of Atlantis.
The Lost City of Atlantis
Atlantis is an island mentioned in Plato’s works in 300BC. It is said to be a sophisticated and highly advanced city that was a actually a ring of islands where the residents could go from the ocean to the center of the city and back.
Atlantis usually gets disregarded as mythology.

In the walls of Egypt, there are many references to the deaths of people that took place in the great city out west.
If you look into the map of Africa, 2700 miles from Egypt there is the Richat Structure which could actually look like Atlantis.

The eye of Africa which is 30 miles in diameter could actually fit into what Plato describes as Atlantis.
The Body of the Sphinx
If you look carefully and observe the body of the Sphinx and the head are out of proportion. The head seems too small for the body.
The body of the Sphinx up to the neck has spent most part of the last 4500 years buried under the sand.
Sphinx head and body proportion
It is interestingly noted that the body of the Sphinx is more deteriorated and damaged then the head even when it was buried because it’s been weather-beaten by rain.
Now that couldn’t have been possible unless it came out of the last ice age which was 8000 years ago. This shows how old the Sphinx can actually be.
But here the question arises, that if the head was more exposed to the harsh weather conditions, why is it still in a pristine condition?
Because that is not the original head of the Sphinx.
Back when the Sphinx was in a lush city area and not just a desert it could actually have been a ‘head of a lion’ instead of that of a human.

Based on geology and the weather patterns these new findings can easily be proven. That’s why we think soon the history of the Sphinx will be rewritten.
The Tunnels Under the Sphinx
It is said that there are tunnels under the Sphinx that go all the way up to the pyramids. Archeologists have explored it and found some pretty amazing things there.

Lastly, it would be interesting to mention the Minister of Antiquities in Egypt, Zahi Hawass. He is one of the most powerful men in Egypt because tourism is their number one industry and he decides what you can and can’t do in Egypt as far as archeology is concerned.
Zahi has been implicated in some illegal activities that involve selling antiques out of the country. Zahi says that the chamber below the left paw of the Sphinx is empty. But it is speculated that the chamber might have been stolen and is in some private collection somewhere in the world.
