I have always known about Taleex and it's history but I'm starting to question a lot things regarding it. The reason for this is because recently the Sphinx has been discovered to be a lot older than the claimed 4500 years old. The weathering around the Sphinx suggests it's 6000-12,000 years old. I say this because there's a lot of things we don't know about the ancient world and we as somalis know even less about our ancient past. This is why I have to questions everything regarding our history because a lot of it could be lies instilled in us by the powers at be. Anyways these are my questions.
1. Are there any Somali accounts that say that the Dervish built the fortress? In other words have Somalis attested that the fortress was built by the Dervish?
2. If those fortresses were built by the Dervish then why haven't we seen similar stone buildings in the areas that dervish dwelled?
I'm genuinely curious about this and i want to know more about this.
