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.

John Anthony West isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

“Few things in this world are more predictable than the reaction of conventional minds to unconventional ideas.”
John Anthony West

“We're obliged to acknowledge the limits of reason; and to acknowledge the necessary reality of the realms to which reason has no access.”
John Anthony West, Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt

“Like all other initiatic teaching, Egypt held that man's purpose on earth was the return to the source. There were recognised in Egypt two roads to this same goal. The one was the way of Osiris, who represented the cyclic nature of universal process; this was the way of successive reincarnations. The second road was the way of Horus, the direct path to resurrection that the individual might achieve within a single lifetime. It is the Horian way that is the basis of the Christian revelation and, according to Schwaller de Lubicz, the aim of Christianity was to make this direct path available to all who chose to embark upon it, rather than to a small group of select initiates who, in Egypt, comprised ‘The Temple’. In this sense, and in this sense only, has there been ‘evolution’ in human affairs.”
John Anthony West, Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt
