Your (very provocative) posting alludes to skilled nomadic weavers more than 20,000 years ago who constructed the sphinx and several references to someone named Barber. For the unenlightened among us (and I am one of them), would you clarify -
1. Who is Barber, what is the evidence on which she based her arguments, and where can her writings be found?
2. Enormous stone structures like the sphinx seem like the most unlikely of all possible nomadic creations. What is the evidence that huge structures that must have taken years or decades to construct were made by nomads? Where did they find the time? What was their motive?
