Did the flood waters of Noah cause the ridge marks on the Egyptian Sphinx ?

Did the flood waters of Noah cause the ridge marks on the Egyptian Sphinx ?

West called upon a colleague, Dr. Robert Schoch, professor of geology at Boston University, to evaluate the nature of the erosion of the Sphinx. After careful investigation, Schoch concluded that the "weathering" of the Sphinx was done by water, rather than by wind and sand as commonly believed; that it was first created back during the alluvial period toward the end of the Ice Age when Egypt was experiencing copious amounts of rainfall; and that the Sphinx must be at least 7,000 years old (a conservative estimate by his own admission; Schoch, 1992). He presented his findings to a large forum of geologists, and his conclusions that the weathering patterns evident on the sphinx were the result of water erosion, rather than wind, were generally accepted. Egyptologists, however, were outraged; but Egyptologists have never welcomed geologists into their play pen. But what has all this to do with lions?

But the most interesting mysteries of the Sphinx (or at least those producing the most provocative theories) have to do with how it came to be weathered. The most obvious answer is that it was by millennia of desert winds. 

But when geologist Robert Schoch and Egyptologist John Anthony West examined it in 1990, Schloch concluded it had been weathered by rainfall, not by wind and sand. If that's true, its date of construction might be closer to 7000 BC. 
Similarly, when the maverick Egyptologist R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz visited Giza in the 1930s, he immediately declared that the Sphinx had been weathered by water, not by wind. But instead of suggesting rainfall, Schwaller proposed that the Sphinx had been worn by seawater and that its origins lay in the ocean.

Hi Q93,

I have heard that the ridges on the Sphinx are indeed from water and that the sphinx pre-dates the pyramids.

I have been to the Giza and seen this , but at the time I was not even aware that the Sphinx pre-dates the pyramids by a good amount .

Another interesting fact is that the head of a man on the sphinx was ad-hoc , and the original head was obviously destroyed on purpose for some reason .

I had always though Sphinxy’ nose was one of the colossal missteps like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. However, I would not be surprised if the Flood waters did erode it and remove his nogan and swept it away. It would be humorous if the nose was found in the Alps or Tibetan mountains. :D

In a word No.

A global flood would as happened, totally reshape the earth, no mam made structure would have survieved it.

Look at the messa's in the American deserts those volcanic outcrops where when they formed. Up welling of volcanic lava, the surrounding material has been eroded away by flood water.

Any flood able to erode a few thousand feet of rock away is going to make short work of something only a few tens of feet high.
