This is more high weirdness from Kilgore, Colin Wilson, now mostly about the evidences for an antediluvian civilization. The material Wilson adduces is derivative. Nothing original here, but he is good at summarization, drawing connections between various sources and hypotheses. Basically, the key evidence is that the Sphinx shows weathering at its base that many geologists say can only have occurred from water. There hasn't been enough water in Egypt for tens of thousands of years. Consequently, there must have been a pre-dynastic civilization, perhaps the Atlantis Plato mentioned...
