Tonight we pay a special tribute to John Anthony West
Mr. West changed the world through his research and never ending quest of finding the truth about Egypt and it’s history…and he did it with his research partner, Dr. Robert Schoch of Boston University and director Chance Gardner with the Magical Egypt documentary series.
John Anthony West left this earth last week on February 6, 2018 after a year long fight with cancer and tonight we will celebrate the life and times of John with Robert and Chance and his impact on our world.
Dr. Robert M. Schoch, a full-time faculty member at the College of General Studies at Boston University since 1984, earned his Ph.D. in Geology and Geophysics at Yale University, his M.S. and M.Phil. in Geology and Geophysics from Yale, as well as degrees in Anthropology (B.A.) and Geology (B.S.) from George Washington University.
In the early 1990s, Dr. Schoch along with John Anthony West, recast the date of the Great Sphinx of Egypt from 2,600 BC back to 10,500 BC… by demonstrating that the monument has been heavily eroded by water despite the fact that its location on the edge of the Sahara has endured hyper-arid climactic conditions for the past 5,000 years.
Dr. Schoch revealed to the world that mankind’s history is greater and older than previously believed.
Chance Gardner is a multi-award-winning graphic designer, 3d animator, cinematographer and editor. After a 20 year career producing motion graphics and on-air promo for major tv networks including 20th Century Fox, Paramount Studios and NBC/Universal, he retired from television in 2001 to make documentaries. HIs first documentary “Magical Egypt” became a cult classic and is still in wide circulation around the world.
After 15 years, Gardner has returned to the Magical Egypt project to produce the much anticipated Magical Egypt series 2, which features the iconic personalities from the original ME, plus a new generation of researchers and unorthodox thinkers, all united by a common fascination with the unexplained mysteries of the past.
John Anthony West is a writer, scholar and Pythagorean, born in New York City. He is the author of The Traveler’s Key to Ancient Egypt, and consulting editor for the Traveler’s Key series. His previous book, Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt is an exhaustive study of the revolutionary Egyptological work of the French mathematician and Orientalist, the late R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz.
Jaws won an EMMY Award for his 1993 NBC Special Documentary The Mystery of the Sphinx, hosted by Charlton Heston.
His video series, “Magical Egypt: A Symbolist Tour” is a must see for anyone interested in Egypt, the pyramids, art or sculpture…but also lost history and civilizations.
Three days ago West got back from another trip to Egypt…and he’s with us tonight to discuss the latest news…and we’ll cover it all with an evening called Egypt: Generally Speaking.

West won an EMMY Award for his 1993 NBC Special Documentary The Mystery of the Sphinx, hosted by Charlton Heston. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture.
John has just returned from another trip to Egypt and we’ll be discussing the latest news out of Giza and the Valley of the Kings.
