Egyptian Salafist Demands the Destruction of the Sphinx and Giza Pyramids
Extremists have called upon the downfall of the very few structures that possess clues to Egypt's history, they have associated these historical crafts with idolatry, and with the new leader of Egypt tied closely with the Taliban, it looks as if the call of this action may be inevitable.

Say what you will, but regardless of perspective there is no denying what these structures have offered the world all these years; information, beauty, art, a new nose for Michael Jackson Laughat ...

But I for one would hate to witness such an unbalanced act partaken. Idolatry or not, they are still man-made and symbolize more than just historical research for me.

Leviticus does not justify stupidity, but it is more than enough to define corruption of the human mind.

Do you have a source for that story or do you know it from hearsay?

What is fucking wrong with these people?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Oh, such as the Kaaba?

On another note:
Any Egyptian ruler who did that would blow a massive hole in his own foot since tourism is one of the most important sectors in the countrys economy... Both the people and a sufficient amount of the Egyptian government know that - at least I hope so.

Never, ever ever underestimate just how fucking stupid humans can be.

To those who find this laughably implausible, let me present to you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhas_of_Bamiyan

However, I would like to see a reconstructed Sphinx Consider

Quite!

Quote:However, I would like to see a reconstructed Sphinx Consider


Naah! Too easy!
I would like to see the pyramid of Khaffre reconstructed. But just like the original (as they claim) reconstructed within 20 years (working only 6 months per year), with only manual labor, no wheels and no engines! And only stone tools! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
On the upside: they can use as many laborers as they like.
