After having spent best part of the last 6 months reading this juggernaut and cross-checking references, I can only say that the authors have done a tremendous job of proving that the evidence for the great antiquity of man is at least as strong as much of the evidence commonly accepted today as proof of human history. Those reviewers who claim the authors do not know their subject, or that they employ junk science or bad archaeology, quite simply have not read the book. Those claims are based more upon the (often very impressive) ignorance and preconceptions of the reviewers; do not be put off by them. Examine the evidence and judge for yourself.
Not only do they present a very strong case that we should either open our minds or discard most, if not all, of the commonly accepted evidence of human antiquity, but they demonstrate very clearly how the process of knowledge filtration works to preserve orthodox beliefs and bury contradictory evidence. This is a very important part of the discussion because it needs to be understood why a lot of evidence which was once widely accepted is now widely regarded as mythical or having never existed at all (look at some of the early reviews for this book, mostly from Mr. A Customer, which show how widespread that view is).
I started reading this book with no preconceptions at all except for a nagging suspicion that large parts of the history we are asked to uncritically swallow are wrong and known to be wrong by certain small groups of people. It strikes me from the evidence discussed that not only is the accepted version of human history inaccurate, it is almost completely wrong!Read more ›
If you thought the theory of evolution was cut and dried, with all those cute pictures of hairy ancestors with hominid bodies and ape-like faces and that nifty "family tree" with all the branches, then you've been swallowing what popular media has been feeding you hook, line and sinker. I was amazed to find that, behind the scenes, there is an incredible amount of desention among respected paleoarcheologists about what all these fossils and artifacts mean, how to date them, and what they say about the history of the human race. It'st unfortunate that only one of the many theories - evolution - has been pushed to the public.
The authors don't just throw facts at you. They back everything up with an extensive bibliography that points to litterally thousands of reports from scientific journals that have been either ignored or forgotten over time. I can't imagine the amount of work and time that must have gone into finding, cross-referencing, and organizing all of these documents. But the authors did it and have pulled everything together in a easy to read and understand chronology of discovery.
Again, I found it an amazing, eye-opening book. Those who don't like it must either don't like to read or hold to very conservative views that don't permit an open-minded view of new ideas. And the ideas presented in this book aren't new. Interestingly enough, even the famous Louis, Mary and Richard Leaky, along with other pre-eminate paleoarcheologists, believe that the evolutionary tree so often taught to us is a lot of complete nonsense.
Read the book, cover to cover with an open mind, and decide for yourself.
