Anyway, Yemen is a somewhat different situation.
Actually when I made that post the only thing I had seen on Yemen was the article I had link and had heard nothing from Obama or talking heads.

This is still a big victory for Obama and his backing of the uprising. LOL

um? just curious, when was the last time someone suggested demolishing the Washington Monument (an obelisk, clearly pagan in nature [/sarcasm]) or any other national treasure.

Re: Updated Title: World Revolution 2011

Slight tangent:

I watched The Mystery of The Sphinx with Charleston Heston a year or so ago on Netflix. It was from the 90’s maybe even the late 80s. It was pretty difficult to watch and what you would expect/remember from documentaries from back then. However I learned a couple things from it:

1) Egyptologist is not only a real word but its also a real profession. Shockingly left without ownership until 1952, L Ron Hubbard laid claim to the words Scientology and Scientologist, forever making a career of being a scientist without a specialty no career at all.

2) I cant remember when but Westerns are to blame (aka thank) for the Great Sphinx as we know it today. It was covered in sand up to its head and apparently sand is hard as shit to remove in a desert. I believe the same may be true to some extent for the pyramids.

3) The Great Sphinx and the Pyramids are national treasures belonging to the Egyptian peoples. Tourism is one of the biggest factors for the Egyptian economy and their national treasures are a huge part of that.

Now all of the above is obvious, but what was most interesting about the documentary, and perhaps the “Mystery” the title was alluding to, was that the Great Sphinx may not have been built by Egyptians, but rather by black Africans. I believe the Zulus are/were the best guess.

The documentary claimed the Great Sphinx was MUCH older than assumed and was built during a time when the Zulu people where likely in East Africa. Some Geologists, Climatologists and perhaps other “ologists” (with the exception of Scientologists) were making this claim based off of erosion (considering rainfall in the desert), numerous repairs and the materials used for the repairs along with the erosion to those repairs, the quarries the stones came from, the current and suspected previous faces of the Sphinx, the scale of the head to the body, sphinxes in Egyptian culture and a bunch of other stuff.

But these theories are/were shunned by Egyptologist. I think the field of Egyptology is/was very political, as its difficult to suggest to the Egyptian people that they didn’t build their own national treasures now that they believe they have. There may be racial factors as well. And I think once people started questioning the origins of the Sphinx the Egyptian government made it difficult for them to practice their science in Egypt. And an Egyptologist without Egypt is like a Scientologist without science….. wait never mind.

It was a interesting documentary (albeit painful to watch). I tried to cross check a lot of the claims on the internet and there is some things you can find relating to the issue although its not necessarily easy reading.

Re: Updated Title: World Revolution 2011

Zulus are a South African tribe, it would have been a long walk.

The closest tribe were the Baka but they are tiny so it's unlikely.

My best guess is subcontractors using slaves and alien technology.

Give them time, they'll find something. Right now, they are content on demolishing people's rights over buildings right now. :cheeky-sm

I feel like i remeber hearing Zulus but that doesnt make sense. Maybe the ancestors of the Zulus where pushed south when the Sahara dried up? I cant remember or im getting the Zulu part completely wrong.

So the most accepted theory is that the the Great Sphinx was built around 2-3k BC along with the pymarids. These people were saying that it may have been built around 6-13k BC (just the sphinx not the pyramids). Around 4k the area dried up and the climate is largly what it is today. Between 4-13k BC the area was somewhat tropical. The Sahara "Pump" theory. The idea was that the people who where there at that time were the ones who built the Sphinx.

Now Ancient Aliens clearly built the pyramids, everyone knows that. And Centaurs made Acient Aliens. But who made the Centuars? Maybe, just maybe, the Sphinx.

Long since lost to the Guatemalan jungle, the temple is finally showing its faces to archaeologists, and revealing new clues about the rivalrous kingdoms of the Maya.

Re: Updated Title: World Revolution 2011

I am currently liking this:

US Arab Spring, anyone?


The most revealing feature of our current economic and political model that points to a systematic failure is how the banks have been able to commit and profit from the most heinous crimes without being held accountable, while individuals have been relentlessly hounded for the most minor of infractions. Our society is full of such stories, from banks getting a slap on the wrist for laundering money for drug lords and terrorists while quadriplegics are arrested for smoking a joint and left to suffocate and die in prison, to our leaders having private hit lists and rebranding civilians as combatants and terrorists while peaceful civilians are incarcerated without being charged for any crime just because they refuse to take part in a witch-hunt.
