Hello Lee

My introduction to the writings of Graham Hancock was 'Fingerprints of the Gods' shortly after I'd finished reading a book entitled 'When the Sky Fell' by the Flem-Aths.

I then read 'Keeper of Genesis' and was intrigued by the claim that seismic surveys had detected what might be man-made chambers beneath the Sphinx. This seemed to lend weight to the ramblings of the so-called 'sleeping prophet', Edgar Cayce, who had previously claimed that there was indeed a subterranean chamber yet to be discovered.

Robert Schoch's claims that the type of erosion on the body of the Sphinx was caused by heavy rainfall and not wind erosion was also of interest to me.

What I also find particularly baffling is that the 'entrance' to G1's sarcophagus chamber is little bigger than a crawl space. It seems to my mind somewhat unceremonial and undignified to drop the coffin, get on one's hands and knees and push it through the entrance. Naturally, some will argue that I am wrongly ascribing modern funerary traditions and practices to an ancient civilisation but it is something I have never been able to reconcile.

I like to read the posts of others and don't always have anything to offer to the development of a discussion, so I keep quiet. Other times, I poke the dog with a stick.

I have always been - and remain - open to reading the work of authors regarded as 'fringe'.

Those are some of the reasons which brought me to the site. I read articles from the News Desk, read threads on the message board and on occasions contribute something to a thread when I think I have something to offer, or a question I'd like to ask, prompted by reflection on the discussions I enjoy reading.

Matt
