Besides, both saline and fresh water can dissolve the rocks.” Manichev and Parkhomenko propose a new natural mechanism that may explain the undulations and mysterious features of the Sphinx.This mechanism is the impact of waves on the rocks of the coast.The Great Egyptian Sphinx had already stood on the Giza Plateau by that geological (historical) time.” A strong argument was made by Ukrainian scientists in regards of the Sphinx, arguments based upon geological studies which support Schoch’s view regarding the Sphinx and its age.Manichev and Parkhomenko focus on the deteriorated aspect of the body of the Sphinx, leaving aside the erosive features where the Sphinx is located, which had been studied previously by Schoch.
A Revolutionary theory that is backed up by science.
These lakes were distributed in the territories adjacent to the Nile.
The absolute mark of the upper large erosion hollow of the Sphinx corresponds to the level of water surface which took place in the Early Pleistocene.
Manichev and Parkhomenko firmly believe that the Sphinx had to be submerged for a long time under water and, to support this hypothesis, they point towards existing literature of geological studies of the Giza Plateau.
According to these studies at the end of the Pliocene geologic period (between 5.2 and 1.6 million years ago), sea water entered the Nile valley and gradually creating flooding in the area.
