Encounters with the Unexplained: Tower of Babel & Egyptian Sphinx: What’s Under the Ancient Sphinx? (2002)
Can we discover what, if anything, is buried under the ancient Sphinx in Egypt? Is there a treasure of untold knowledge from an ancient civilization - or even an alien civilization from another star system? Has it already been found and is it being kept secret from the public? If so, what was the treasure this massive creature was protecting? Is it possible that even today, the Sphinx stands guard over some still undiscovered chamber? Or is the Sphinx merely a massive tribute to a monarch's ego? Archaeologists and geologists square off over the Sphinx as the Egyptian government declares - hands off!
Some of the animosity in the world today can be traced to a single event related in the Bible - the confusion of language and the dispersion of the races at the Tower of Babel. But was there ever such a tower to begin with? And if there was, has it really been found in ancient Babylon? Can we actually confirm that there was a time in the distant past when everyone spoke the same language and essentially belonged to the same race? Do the modern sciences of linguistics, sociology, and archaeology tell us that a common language and common ancestry all proceed from a single place on earth and a single point in time? Surprising answers to this age-old mystery will connect you to your past and the socio-political problems in many parts of the world today.
