Does mankind’s history go back farther than we previously believed?
Dr. Robert Schoch may have the answer to this question as he stunned the world with his revolutionary research that recast the date of the Great Sphinx of Egypt to a period thousands of years earlier than its standard attribution. Join host Ben Chasteen as he talks with Dr. Schoch at Contact in the Desert conference about these findings, and how the Sphinx might overturn our understanding of Egypt and even the human civilization.
As a geologist, Dr. Schoch found that the Sphinx showed the precipitation that goes back to a different climatic period dating all the way back to the end of the last Ice Age rather than the standard attribution of 2500 B.C.. Through reinterpreting ancient Egyptian inscriptions, Dr. Schoch also found evidence of the original statue being a lioness—the Goddess Mehti.
Dr. Schoch believes that we need to look at these past ancient civilizations as we prepare for the future. “We have lost something perhaps from a spiritual point of view that some of these civilizations had, but ultimately their civilization was based on what we would call high spiritual principles, not just making more money for this person at the expense of that person.”
Dr. Robert M. Shoch is a full-time faculty member at the College of General Studies at Boston University since 1984 and a recipient of its Peyton Richter Award for interdisciplinary teaching. He earned his Ph.D. in Geology and Geophysics at Yale University in 1983. In recognition of his research into ancient civilizations, Dr. Schoch was awarded the title of Honorary Professor of the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy in 2014 in Varna, Bulgaria. In 2017, the College of General Studies at Boston University named him Director of its Institute for the Study of the Origins of Civilization (ISOC).
Dr. Schoch’s research is further detailed in his book: Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future (2012). He has appeared on numerous radio and television shows and is featured in the Emmy-winning documentary The Mystery of the Sphinx, which first aired on NBC in 1993.
