Well, I think it is probable that they could have used the Sphinx for target practice. ...

I am very sorry for you ... But that does not change the fact, that it was not the case.

... how was it that so many of the temples became destroyed, if they had not been destroyed by human action? This brings to mind the statues at Bubastis, that have tremendous fissures going across them, while statues elsewhere seem to be untouched. ...

The Temple in Bubastis was first destroyed by an earthquake (as the Temple of Amenhotep III in Luxor, Westbank). Secondarily, they were then used by later generations as a source of raw materials.
The latter also applies to many buildings that were still known and described in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Times. Here should be mentioned for example, the Temple of Min in Achmin, and of course those of Ra-Atum in Iunu (Heliopolis).
