    let me explain, through various archeological studies and so on regarding the pyramids etc. someone was suveying the underground area with ultrasound scanners and so on. they made a discovery of a chamber under the sphynx at the front. now because the sphynx pre-dates the egyptians due to the dating of the erosion on it, it was built when the area was lush (the pharoes re-carves the head from a lion to a man), the civilisation then was theorised to be part of that of atlantis as some believe its in the med not the atlantic. long story short, hyrogliphs, carbon dating and myths lead some archeologist to believe that the chamber is actually the fabled library of atlantis.

    but the egyptian government has never, and will not allow anyone to open this chamber.

    Okay. Well, I'll have to look that up somewhere. The reason I was (and still am) skeptical is because I recently studied the history of ancient Egypt and all that and never read anything about the Sphynx being built buy another civilization or anything.

    But would they say otherwise, if that was true? There's a level of pride, I'd think, and they would probably rather say they built it.

    its aproven fact the egyptians, or at least the egyptian/pharoh type civilisation didnt build the sphnx, it was build long before them when the land was lush, it was built as a giant lion statue. when the pharoh's came along they re-carved the head in their image. if you look at a picute it is obvious enough, the erosion on the body is deep so the whole thing is grainy and looks like the grand canyon. the head however is fresher and hardily eroded.

    and if you studied ancient egypt you may not have read anything about this, but did you read anywhere the egyptians saying they did build it?

    I think it's more likely that someone was trying to explain away dinosaur fossils than there being dragons and people co-existing.

    If I do think on it, perhaps it never was said that the Egyptians built it. One just assumes...

    But I'm still not buying the library of Atlantis under a pyramid thing.

    i doubt we co-existed, our ancestors probably killed them all, as there are none about today they must have all been killed or driven into hiding.

    Some say that big foot is real. They even say that they have seen big foot. Others say that they have over active imaginations. Some say the same thing about Dragons. But if one has to believe in something it might as well be Dragons. :dragon:

    maybe not the library, but it is a fact there's a chamber beneath the legs of the Sfinx. Like Crusader said, the body is much older than the head, which the Egyptians made out of the old head...


    And I don't believe in the mythical dragons. Dinosaurs were dragons, but not fire-breathers we want to :p Until now, there is a dragon, some kind of giant lizard... I don't remember the exact English word.. (for those who understand Dutch: een vuur-varaan :p)

    see, one person at least has heard of this. the sphinx is not a pharoah/egyptian statue but mush older, it has a hidden chamber below its feet that no one has yet opened.

    Many believe that it is a library of atlantis as spoken of in ancient scripts etc etc etc.

    ancient history is really fascinating isnt it? dragons probably did exist.

    All right, I'm willing to accept the fact that there is a chamber under the Sphynx and that it is older that people think, but I still won't believe that the chamber is a library from Atlantis. If it was, wouldn't a bunch of historians be down there in a hurry? Why won't they get in there? Wouldn't it be a huge discovery for them to find something of that magnitude? I don't get it.:confused:

    the egyptian government have banned all excavations towards this chamber. they have not allowed anyone permition to even look. Any archeologist would need the governments blessing on this as it would be VERY hard to secretly excavate a chamber below one of the country's biggest tourist attractions.

    and if you ask how we know its there, two word: Ultrasound Scan

    governments, what a bunch of idiots, these things are thousands of years old and are in no way connected to any politicians and yet they still cover them up like george w bush had an affair in that chamber.
