Breaking News: Using Archeoastronomy The Pyramid Complex At Giza In Egypt Has Been Dated To 10,500 BC

Related Evidence: Geologists Agree That The Sphinx Has Rain Erosion Patterns On It Indicating It Was Built Before 5000 BC! 2500 Years BEFORE Mainstream Egyptologists Claim It Was Built! )

We have one piece of evidence (of the geological condition of the Sphinx) that links the remains of ancient civilizations to dates that precede conventional assumptions to such a degree that any more pieces of information found along these lines will prove to be the death sentence for mainstream Egyptology and Archaeology... as any science that no longer uses the other sciences, to verify it's work in whatever context it can be utilized for, is no longer a science but a cult.

In the following documentary, Robert Bauval talks about the astronomical alignments he uncovered in the pyramid complex at Giza that suggest that this site has been in use in some form or another since 10,500 BC. We already know Megalithic Cultures go back to at least 9500 BC (or longer if we take into account ocean rise) and we know many Megalithic cultures were obsessed with observing the sky, documenting it in stone and developing the site with more structures over time. (This is breaking news as far as the fields of Egyptology and Archaeology is concerned.)

Documentary: Egypt Exposed: The True Origin Of Civilizations with Robert Bauval

Summarizing some of the theories presented here: 

2 major takeaways from this documentary for this blog post series

1. Orion Constellation Theory: The Pyramids are aligned to Orion's belt

As Robert Bauval points out in an article on his site;

The first questions that come to mind in order to demonstrate such possible intention are these:

    1.Did the pyramid builders have a keen interest in the stars? Yes they did.

    2.Do the pyramids have astronomical qualities in their design? Yes they do.

    3.Is there a feature in the pyramids that links them to Orion's belt? Yes there is (the southern shaft from the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid).

    4.Are there contemporary or near-contemporary texts which are associated to pyramids in that region and which speak of a link with Orion? Yes, there are.

    5.Did the ancient Egyptians imagine the pyramids to be 'stars'? Yes (the Zawyat al Aryan pyramid was called 'The Pyramid of Nebka is a star" and the Abu Ruwash pyramid was called "The Pyramid of Djedefre is a Sehed Star". Also the 'soul' (Ba) in ancient Egypt was equated to a 'star', and several pyramids bear 'soul names', such as "The Pyramid of Neferirkare has become a Ba (Soul)" and "The Ba (Soul) of Sahure Gleams".

From the above we must conclude that there is much that suggests a deliberate intention to represent Orion's belt at Giza.

Yet the BBC Horizon programme conveniently 'forgot' about all this. Instead they brought in the 'scientific' argument of a South African astronomer called Tony Fairall who calculated that there was an angle difference of 9 degrees of rotation between the alignment of the two larger pyramids and that of the brighter stars in Orion's belt and, consequently, this 'proved' that there was no intention by the ancient builders to represent Orion's belt by the Giza pyramids. But how did Fairall measure this angle? Well, according to him he first measured it 'off' the planetarium screen, then calculated it using spherical trigonometry. The ancient Egyptians, however, had to measure it literally 'off' the sky. Now the angle of rotation of the two (lower) brighter stars of Orion's belt, as it appears to the naked-eye, is very difficult to measure within an accuracy of less than +/- 5 degrees of rotation, especially when we have to make use of simple and very rudimentary instruments and working in darkness. Why not try it from your home tonight? At this time of year (December-January) Orion rises at around 6 PM and reaches the meridian at about midnight. At any rate, even were it feasible to get an accuracy of less than +/- 5 degrees, this is really academic, for visually such a variation is almost impossible to discern for the small apparent length as Orion's belt as it appears to the naked eye, as the diagram below demonstrates.

2. Sphinx faces east towards the Leo constellation to the date of 10,500 BC (establishing an age for the beginning of the Egyptian site which brings it closer to Gobleki Tepe and the other Megalith cultures lost in history)

One person summarizes it as;

However, controversy over Giza's exact age continues to linger. Turn our attention to the layout of the 3 pyramids on the ground in 2500 BC. It is then observed that the Orion's belt stars are somewhat skewed in relations to the ground plan of the 3 Pyramids. Since precession causes the height of stars to change with time over a period of 26,000 years, try tilting the sky-image anti-clockwise back to the night sky we would observe in the 10,500 BC epoch. We then observe a perfect match of sky-ground image! While star Mintaka, smallest of the 3 stars of Orion's belt is slightly slanted in a south-westerly direction relative to the axis of the Milky Way, the 3rd pyramid too intimates this layout by being offset from the 2 greater pyramids in a similar direction. The Great Pyramid aligns perfectly to Al Nitak, Second Pyramid to Al Nilam and the Third Pyramid, to star Mintaka.

In addition, only in the 10,500 BC epoch will we see that River Nile (which runs through Egypt) actually mirrored the Milky Way in the night skies. Seemingly, this unique layout was an attempt by ancient Egyptians to build a Heaven on Earth's ground.

Discoveries of ancient Egyptian's fascination and devotion towards stars (of which they associate with God) tell us that the strong resemblance in the pyramids' layout with the skies is unlikely to be coincidental. So, when exactly were the Pyramids built? According to Bauval, 'the Pyramids themselves were largely built in 2500 BC, while the ground plan of the 3 pyramids was physically established in 10,500 BC.

Other interesting discoveries concern the dating of two of the Indian classics using astronomical data to, what is basically, the stone age, i.e. 5561 BC for the Mahabharata war and the date of 7600 BC for the story of the Ramayana.

Hindunet documents this: Some say that the Ramayan follows Mahabharat and some opine otherwise. In all this anarchy of Indian histography, the date of the Mahabharat (the mythical story!) ranges between 1000 300 B.C. Saunskrut epics were academically attacked occasion- ally - an attempt to disprove the authencity of the annals noted therein. For example, the European Indologiest Maxmuller, tried the interpret the astronomical evidences to prove that the observations recorded in the Hindu scriptures are imaginary, probably because it did not match the prevelant views of European historians!

On the contrary, many Bharatiya scholars have vehemently maintained the actual occurance of the Mahabharat War. Astronomical and literary evidences or clues from the Pauranic and Vaidik texts have been deci- phered to provide a conclusive date for the Mahabharat War. The fifth century mathematician, Aryabhatta, calculated the date of the Mahabharat War to be approximately 3100 B.C. from the planetary posi- tions recorded in the Mahabharat. Prof. C.V. Vaidya and Prof. Apte had derived the date to be 3101 B.C. and Shri. Kota Venkatachalam reckoned it to be 3139 B.C. However, the astronomical data used by the above, and many other, scholars contained some errors as examined by a scho- lar from Pune, Dr. P.V. Vartak. Using astronomical references and variety of other sources, Dr. Vartak has derived the date of the ini- tiation of the Mahabharat War to be 16th October 5561 B.C.

How Ramayana was dated to 7600BC using astronomical data in the story: Mahabharat states that Sage Vishwamitra started counting nakshatras from Shravana (Aadiparva A.71 and Ashwamedha A.44) and a new reference to time measurement thus initiated. According to the old tradition, the first place was assigned to the nakshatra prevelant on the Vernal Equinox. Vishwamitra modified this and started measuring from the nakshatra at the Autumnal Equinox. Sharvan was at this juncture at about 7500 B.C, which is therefore the probable period when Vishwamitra existed and also that of the Ramayanic Era.

Formerly, the year initiated with the Varsha-Rutu (season) and therefore was termed "Varsha". Ramayan shows that the flag was being hoisted to celebrate the new year on Ashwin Paurnima (Kishkindha 16/37, Ayodhya 74/36). Ayodhya 77 mentions that the flags were defaced and damaged due to heat and showers. These descriptions point to the fact that their new year started on the Summer Solstice when heat and rain simultaneously exist. The Summer Solstice fell on Ashwin Full Moon, so the Sun was diagonally opposite at Swati nakshatra. This astral configuration can be calculated to have occured around 7400 B.C.

Kishkindha 26-13 describes the commencement of the rainy season. In shloka 14, refers to Shravan as "Varshika Poorva Masa". Kishkindha 28/2 clearly shows that the rainy season began in Bhadrapada Masa. Further description "Heated by the Sun and showered by new waters, the earth is expelling vapours" (Kish.26/7) points to Bhadrapada as premonsoon. Kish.28/17 tells that there was alternate sun-shine and shadowing by the clouds. Kish.28/14 describes the on-coming rainy season. Thus Bhadrapada was the month of pre-monsoon, that is before 21st June or Summer Solstice. Naturally, months of Ashwin and Kartika formed the rainy season. It is therefore concluded that Ashwin Full Moon coincided with Summer Solstice, that year being 7400 B.C.

Rama started forest-exile in Chaitra and ended it in Chaitra. He was coronated in the same month and one month later, proceeded to Ashokavan with Seeta (Uttar 41/18) when the Shishira Rutu terminated. So it seems that Vaishakha Masa coincided with Shishira. So the Winter Solstice was at Vaishakha with the Sun at Ashwini. At present, the Winter Solstice takes place at Moola. Thus a shift of 10 nakshatras has occured since the Ramayanic Era. Precession has a rate of 960 years per nakshatra. Therefore, Ramayan must have occured 9600 years ago, which is 7600 B.C approximately.

It may be that the stories accumulated astronomical data over the years randomly and they coincidentally coincide with those dates in history. It is also possible, given how mythology tends to remain constant over large epochs of time, that these astronomical details have always been a part of the story. We
do have evidence of primitive tribes tracking the sky, for what appears to be, thousands of years AND the Megalithic Cultures seem to have emerged with advanced astronomical observations encoded in some of their structures.
