How old is the Sphinx

How old are the pyramids really?

Since last year, when it was announced worldwide that the world-famous Sphinx is said to be almost 13,000 years old, nothing has been the same as it once was. Of course, the question arises how old are the neighboring pyramids really?

Scientists are looking for facts. Often one building block is put together after the other. Years ago, astrophysicists used complicated software to calculate that the Great Pyramid (Cheops) was aligned with the stars (supposedly built 4,000 years ago) and could possibly be over 11,000 years old.

World history or cultural history must be rewritten. The Egyptian authorities will probably not want to comply with it, but there is a risk that the rule of the pharaohs did not correspond to what historians have indicated. And that for centuries.

Whichever argumentation is used for the actual construction time - and construction technology - of the pyramids collapses in the absence of supporting evidence, just as the Sphinx and the pyramids in our epoch gradually crumble thanks to environmental pollution. After all, these artifacts, which can even be seen from space, were created by an anonymous high culture that existed long before the official ancient Egyptians. I am thinking of the Venus von Willendorf (Natural History Museum Vienna) or similar related examples, which are estimated to be around 35,000 years old.
Absurd: Well, how old it all really is hardly matters. These man-made structures are always fascinating. Presumably they are also a message carved in stone to posterity ... - E. Z.

Napoleon Bonaparte before the Sphinx, historical painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme, 1867-68; Hearst Castle San Simeon, California, USA - Napoleon paid attention to the great cultural significance of ancient Egypt during his Egyptian campaign. His scientists documented the ancient artifacts thoroughly and apparently one of these drawings was used as a template - Photo: Wikimedia Commons - Public domain

Sphinx, behind it very small, the queen pyramids, then the medium-sized Mykerinos pyramid, in front of it the Chephren pyramid and to the right on the right the Cheops pyramid - the Austrian painter Hubert Sattler is likely to have made this picture on site at the beginning of the 1860s (?) ; Salzburg Museum - Photo: Wikimedia Commons - Public domain
