Please note: I borrowed this from the library and read it in April 2007. It is not counted as "read" because I want my own copy. anyway, this review was written in 2007.
Asking rather more questions than it answers, The Message of the Sphinx purports to use geology to prove that the Sphinx is much older than normally suspected. Also, astronomy is used to show once again that the layout of the Giza plateau represents the sky overhead at the summer solstice in 10,500 BC, which the author theorizes is when the First Time began. Having recently read The Kybalion, which is a hermetic work supposedly handed down from the Sages discussed in this book, it actually all does sort of fit together - as above so below, as below so above is a mainstay of their system of belief and as such the layout of the Giza plateau and other pyramids in the general area fit the pattern. While I pride myself in not being a credulous person, I found the theories and suppositions put forth by the author to have a strong ring of truth to them - it does make me want to conduct further research and I can feel the frustration in the author that further studies have been so heavily curtailed.
A must-read for anyone interested in Egyptology, ancient civilizations and alternative theories of history.
