This is Earth Ancient Premier podcast, the first in a series of weekly programs. Our first program features John Anthony West. John will highlight his work following the amazing redating of the Sphinx.
Who is John Anthony West? Dr. Robert Schoch was the Geologist who examined the Egyptian Sphinx on the Giza Plateau, and later redated the rock body of the sculpture to a significantly older period. The inspiration and driving force behind the discovery was John Anthony West. West had studies the Sphinx, its enclosure and many of the regions buildings, and was convinced that the world's largest man-made sculpture was from an earlier pre-dynastic people. He was the driving force behind Schoch's work and others.
In 1993 his work with Robert M. Schoch, a geologist and associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies at Boston University was presented by Charlton Heston in a NBC special called “The Mystery of the Sphinx” that won West an News & Documentary Emmy Award for Best Research and a nomination for Best Documentary. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx (pictured) and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture (such as the Heavy Neolithic Qaraoun culture).
This challenged the conventional dating of the carving of the statue circa 2500 BCE. West suggested that the Sphinx may be over twice as old as originally determined, whereas Schoch made a more conservative determination of between 5000 and 7000 BCE.
John Anthony West will be coming on the show to discuss Ancient Egypt and the many mysteries within. He will also discuss the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, Akhenaten, Sun Worship, and ancient Egypt's effect on the world up unto this very day. He is Author of Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt, The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt, and The Mystery of the Sphinx.
Author, lecturer, and guide, John Anthony West delivered a seismic shock to archaeology in the early 1990's when he and Boston University geologist Robert Schoch revealed that the Great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt, showed evidence of rainfall erosion. Such erosion could only mean that the Sphinx was carved during or before the rains that marked the transition of northern Africa from the last Ice Age to the present interglacial epoch, a transition that occurred in the millennia from 10,000 to 5000 BC.

Jeremy and Chris are back for the hour-plus shows as we are previewing the first week of the Mountain West football season. There are 12 games and the guys do gloss over a little bit of the FCS vs. Mountain West teams, but the big games like Ole Miss vs. Boise State, Tennessee vs. Utah State, UNLV vs. Arizona and other similar games get plenty of attention.
There is one super crazy upset pick by both of us, and while it won't come true it is quite possible that at the very worst this crazy pick should at least cover the monstrous spread.
Also, this year Chris and Jeremy will keep track of our picks and let everyone know how we do picking games this year, so sit back with your headphones and listen to this 80 minute show.
