Most folks who are interested in the hypotheses of a pre-Dynastic Sphinx are probably familiar with Dr. Robert Schoch, the geologist who asserts that the erosion of the Sphinx' midsection was caused by water as opposed to blowing sand.

What I'm interested in, though, is Schoch's assertion that the same culture(s) which developed pre-Dynastic Egyptian artifacts influenced Mesoamerican culture as well.

I understand that Schoch claims additional evidence to support this hypothesis, but I have not seen any. Does anyone out there have any information on cultural/ linguistic/ architectural, etc. correlations between the Egyptian and various Mesoamerican cultures?

I am by no means an "expert" on such things, although I have visited Maya sites in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico on several occasions. However, I do plan on an Egypt trip in early 2008 and would appreciate as much background as possible before I actually go there.

I posted this message at another site and was directed here. Any good data would be much appreciated.
