More About the Author

Dr. Cuozzo is an orthodontist practicing in Glen Ridge, New Jersey for 33 years. He studied Georgetown University and earned degrees from the University of Pennsylvania (DDS) and Loyola University/Chicago Graduate School of Dentistry (MS, Oral Biology; Certificate of Specialty in Orthodontics). He also was a Lieutenant in the United States Navy serving as a dentist aboard the USS Enterprise (CVAN-65) for eighteen months.

Cuozzo and his wife Diane became Christians in 1975. In 1977 he studied philosophy in Switzerland with the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer. Two years later he embarked upon an original study of Neanderthal fossil specimens with the aid of the late Wilton M. Krogman, Ph.D., known as the Father of Forensic Anthropology. Dr. Cuozzo's paleontology studies have been conducted in the Musee de l'Homme in Paris, the British Museum in England, the University of Liege in Belgium, the Rockefeller Museum in Jerusalem, the Museum of Prehistory in East Berlin, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the Field Museum in Chicago, the Peabody Museum at Harvard University, the paleontology collection of Southern Methodist University and the Paleolithic caves in Southern France. He is known for taking the first cephalometric (orthodontic) radiographs in history of the Neanderthal fossils in 1979 in France.

Dr. Cuozzo's publishing efforts include three articles in the Journal of the New Jersey Dental Society, and one article and one editorial review in Creation Magazine. His research was featured in a cover story of the Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal in 1994. His other articles were in the Creation Research Society Quarterly and Bible Science News. Some of his work was included in The Creation, and he appeared in the movie series, "Origins - HowThe World Came To Be."

He is the author of Buried Alive (Master Books, 1998), a research and adventure book concerning his studies of ancient man and Biblical revelation. He has written a chapter in In Six Days (1999) with 49 other scientists and a chapter in When Christians Roamed The Earth (Master Books 2002), Captured Alive (Pleasant Word Publishers, 2003) and a chapter in a soon-to-be-published, secular research book on Neanderthals. He has made approximately one hundred and fifty radio programs on Christian and secular radio and has been interviewed on CBN television.

Dr. Cuozzo and his wife, Diane, have been married 38 years. They have five grown children and fourteen grandchildren.

This was like two different books. The first 14 chapters (64 pages) were so dramatic and so well written that I could not put the book down. Dr. Cuozzo tells of his 1979 trip to the Museum of Man in Paris to do radiographic research on neandertal skulls. He discovered that the jaw of one specimen was not properly seated in its joint. When it was, the skull had a decidedly human, non-apelike cast. This is how Dr. Cuozzo x-rayed it. His agreement with the museum required him to submit duplicate x-rays to the museum, which he did when his work there, but not his trip to France, was completed. What happened next is the stuff of spy novels, and Ian Fleming could not have told it better than Dr. Cuozzo has in this book.
Unfortunately, the book then bogs down in a welter of technical detail. Eventually it becomes almost unreadable. After the first 14 chapters, it probably was not advisable to try to tell the story in chronological order. Dr. Cuozzo probably should have backed off and taken a more explanatory, and less breathless, approach to relating his main thesis. In any case, the book needed strong editorial direction in order to be more useful to lay people unschooled in disciplines such as orthodontics and forensic science. That level of editorial input was not available at Master Books, in Green Forest, Arkansas.
Dr. Cuozzo has done some important and valuable work, work that dovetails nicely with recent research indicating that the neandertals are, indeed, genetically related to modern humans. See, e.g., an article in the Feb. 2 issue of "Science" by Milford H. Wolpoff, David W. Frayer, and Keith Hunley.

Format: Paperback
The first part of this book reads like pages out of Indiana Jones' diary, only this is no fantasy, but fact. The following chapter titles give some idea of the flavour:
"The Chase" - author's van tearing recklessly through the streets of Paris with two sports cars in hot pursuit.
"Bathroom Doors to the Rescue" - attempted break-in to the author's hotel room in the middle of the night.
"Some Chilling News" - of a murder?
"Ancestor Meeting Followed by Bullets" - fired at the author's van.
What's the meaning of this cloak-and-dagger stuff?
Dr. Jack Cuozzo, an orthodontist of many years' experience, is the only creationist scientist to have gained access to original Neandertal fossil material for detailed study. This was before the museum authorities realised his creationist world-view - after that the doors were closed to him. These are the rules the evolutionist establishment (though not all evolutionist individuals) play by: deny creationists access to the research material where possible, and deny them the opportunity to publish the results of their research, then tell the world they are only armchair scientists. The physicist Robert Gentry was a victim of this discrimination (read about his experiences in "Creation's Tiny Mystery"), as well as the author of this book, whose work exposed the heavy bias of evolutionist anthropologists in reporting their research, even to the extent of doctoring the evidence. Is the secular scientific establishment pursuing an agenda to con the unsuspecting public into evolutionary beliefs? Many will shrug off such a conspiracy theory, but read this book before making up your mind.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
How many books on human fossils begin with a dangerous high speed chase through the streets of Paris, complete with mysterious pursuers in sports cars? (If you don't believe me, read chapter one.) What are gripping descriptions of a drive-by shooting and a bizarre murder of an innocent scientist doing in a book on the dull topic of ancient fossil remains? What is this, Indiana Jones Meets James Bond?
I had read several of Dr. Cuozzo's technical and popular papers on the subject of human origins, and had high expectations for this book. It exceeds them. What I was not expecting was the ferocity and tactics of evolutionists seeking to suppress the evidence Dr. Cuozzo presents.
This is more than a dry book of science. It reveals the all too human side of paleoanthropology. When the famous British scientist, Lord Zuckerman, doubted whether there was much science to be found in the field of human fossil research he was hinting at the degree to which evolutionism, philosophic beliefs and assumptions distort what the public is taught about the evidence.
This book is the stuff of which Kuhnian scientific revolutions are made. A poorer explanation of the place of Neanderthal in the human family tree has been replaced by a superior one. Moreover, Cuozzo's findings of degeneration from Neanderthal to modern man mesh well with everything we know from empirical evolutionary biology. (C.f. Dr. Lee Spetner's book, Not by Chance) We are not evolving up from a primordial soup, but rather down from the Garden of Eden.

A great complement to reviews on Dr. Cuozzo's book is his recent interview on Underground Perspectives in Realaudio describing his work and book. To hear the interview while you read his other reviews click web site below:
"What would you look like if you lived over 350 years? Your face and head keeps changing as you get older. Dr. Jack Cuozzo's research says you might look like Neanderthal man! Are these cave dwellers the long lived grandsons of Noah??"
