Schoch, West Vindicated on Sphinx
For fifteen years, orthodox Egyptologists- all of whom are directly or indirectly beholden to Zahi Hawass and the Egyptian government- have berated, mocked, blacklisted and ridiculed John Anthony West and Robert Schoch. Their transgression? West and Schoch inconveniently pointed out that the scientific evidence shows that the Sphinx is much, much older than we are properly supposed to believe that it is. Or were supposed to believe, since two orthodox scientists have now come forward and corroborated West and Schoch's theory that the Sphinx was a (badly) revised statue of a lion.
How many times have we seen this before?
There seems to be a certain bureaucratic type of personality that has no interest in any evidence that questions or challenges the status quo. West and Schoch and so many other brilliant researchers know all too well that those who see themselves as the guardians of orthodoxy will never admit when they were wrong, no matter how much evidence piles up against them. It's not about truth or fact for these self-appointed gatekeepers, it's about stroking their egos. It's about protecting a pathetic little fantasy of being the last custodians of the Enlightenment, even if their reductionist fundamentalism is actually anathema to the philosophy of thinkers like Newton.
But all of that is rapidly changing.
The boring old media monopolies are rapidly crumbling. And we're sitting on the threshold of a time when information itself seems to be taking on a mind of its own. The Internet is creating a whole host of problems, but it's also helped remove so many of the old filters and bottlenecks on the flow of information and data.
I think we're all in for a pretty rough ride in this world, but I also think that an entirely new vision of our origins- and of our future- will emerge from the chaos. And it must, because there's no future in the status quo.
