Editorial Reviews

About the Author

No degrees or PhD's are held by this character, he is just a naturally curious fellow about his surroundings and has been since childhood. This armchair researcher, with no official post graduate schooling was not constrained by conventional theories when studying his many references used for this book. Combine this with a natural ability to organize material and a high intellect and penchant for solving puzzles all being used on ancient mysteries, meant that slowly these mysteries melted into feasible though somewhat fantastic theories. His interests were not confined to narrow focus's or fields and consequently his wider interests also helped in crossing borders of the various disciplines in order to come up with these theories. He is also an artist and painted the cover of the book which reflects some of the theories presented in the work.

Doug Hodges - Book Review
Earth, Man, & Devolution
By R. Pilotte
Since the beginning of recorded time, man has thought about origins, where people came from, how and why. He has thought about the things he doesn't comprehend. Usually relegated to `Esoteric' or `New Age', many people over the years have sought, found their answers, and published.
In Earth, Man, & Devolution, R. Pilotte offers his own unique theory. Unlike so many other books, he does not come at us as a know-it-all professor or preacher; he guides us, along with himself, on an incredible thought-provoking journey of discovery.
Shunning the theories of Evolution, he begins with the Creationist standpoint. In a logical, step by step manner, using the plethora of research out there, and using the Bible and other ancient texts as timelines, he begins us with God's perfect creation, leads us through the possible falls, the flood of Noah, and other floods, the cataclysmic breaking apart of the single mother continent and the spread of the earth's crust around the globe.
Pilotte tells of Man, how and in what stages he has survived and `devolved', explaining along the way UFOs, the Hollow Earth, the Pyramids, lost cities, lands and civilizations, the Bermuda Triangle, the Philadelphia experiment, mysterious disappearances, reincarnation, spontaneous combustion, and green people ... virtually every esoteric question man has had is covered in this fantastic volume, at least in passing.
Questioning science's ability to truly test age, Pilotte theorizes that the Earth is not anywhere near as old as we are led to believe. He rationally questions the teaching of `science' when it is not proven, especially when there are other just as valid theories.

Once you get past Pilotte's biblical perspective and his self-deprecatory style, there is actually a lot of information in this book. I've been studying this area for 20 years and found many gems here. Makes good bedside reading.

Since I treasure anything that helps me to see the world differently, I don't regret reading this book, particularly the first half.

However, reviewing this book is difficult. Both Darwinists and Creationists have serious flaws in their arguments and probably the truth lies somewhere in between; I'm not really interested in either topic and wouldn't have bought this book had I known it was basically Creationist. [Later note: Source Field Investigations by Wilcock includes some amazing new scientific information about DNA and evolution.]

Further, the book is both overpriced and extremely badly written - maybe the worst I have ever come across. The author appears to be not very well schooled but is clearly well self-educated in areas that interest him. The book was almost painful to read; easy to see why it had to be self-published, an editor's care is sorely missed. The arguments are not always that logical and definitely not always well-based. The author disarmingly admits his shortcomings.

In the end, it was an interesting book. The author has asked the kind of questions a child might about "emperor's clothes", and has apparently always done so. He queries the conventional stories of our past and reaches a fascinatingly different view about much of what is called "pre-history" (meaning "before history", implying - probably deliberately - there's nothing much to look at there and thus subconsciously deflecting the interest of the vast majority).

This book gives a very different answer for the reason we are all being discouraged from looking at "prehistory", namely that our past is not what we are being told it is. Another interesting self-published book with contrary views (on a different angle) and somewhat similar limitations is "Reverse Theory".

Note to all: Don't waste your hard earned money on this book, even if you find a used one for a dollar. It's not even worth that. This guy wasted years of his life putting this dribble together.

Pilotte is a deluded religious fanatic, one of those fringe groupies who believe the history of man on the earth is only a few thousand years, a "fact" he supports using information gleaned from the bible. This is just the first of many irrational "facts" he takes to be truth and subsequently builds the book around. It would be funny if it wasn't so stupid. I spent a lot of money on this nonsense and I feel ripped off.

I'm into the second time i'm reading this book. The first time I rushed through it and didn't grasp all the info it contained. I like to read stuff with an open mind.As the good book says in the end we will be shown these mystries.
