About the Author

Joseph P. Farrell is a recognized scholar whose credentials include a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Oxford. His literary contribution is a veritable resume unto itself covering such fields as Nazi Germany, Sacred Literature, physics, finances, the Giza pyramids, and music theory. A renowned researcher with an eye to assimilate a tremendous amount of background material, Dr. Farrell is able to condense the best scholastic research in publication and draw insightful new conclusions on complex and controversial subjects.

Dr. Farrell is also the author of Feral House's releases "Babylon's Banksters" and "The Philosopher's Stone".

More About the Author

Joseph P. Farrell was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1957, has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Philosophy, an M.A. in Historical and Theological Studies, and a Ph.D. in Patristics (NOT physics as one of his publishers keeps insisting on saying in spite of his best efforts to get them to change that!). After a lifelong interest in alternative history, science, and a fascination for ancient texts, Joseph started writing in 2001 on these subjects. He also studied pipe organ from the age of six until beginning college, and composes classical music for friends and family. He also plays the harpsichord.

Customer Reviews

Very readable, thought provoking, and highly recommended, as are all Farrell's books.
Jon Norris
I could only read 6-7 pages at a time, the book never really captured my attention, I often hoped the book would end or just get to the point, [snore].
The book is not an not easy read, long laborious sentences plus too much text borrowed from other authors to fill the pages for a book.
Don Colson

This latest release from Farrell continues his Cosmic War line of investigations into the history of the Earth and humankind. The text is 239 pages and a Bibliography. The primary theme of the book is to start with the assumption of the Cosmic War, and follow the leads available to discern the agenda (or agendas) of the surviving "elites" of that war, and lay the groundwork for further detailed examination of this topic and the ramifications it holds for us today.

As usual, Farrell executes his task brilliantly. There are very, very few thinkers or authors who can comb through evidence and data, view each piece with balance, and carefully craft a solid, defensible argument of the caliber that Farrell does on a regular basis. I apologize for sounding like some simple fanboy, but I am appreciative of, and impressed by, the quality of Farrell's thought process - something extremely rare in this day of Public Relations, the evening news, and mass media designed to entertain 6 year olds (and not very bright 6 year olds at that...)

The book covers such diverse areas as ancient texts, ancient stories and legends from different parts of the world, genetics - old and new, archeological anomalies, modern electronic and related mind control, electromagnetic weapons, the discovery of "the Megalithic yard," and so on.

Farrell sorts, sifts, and synthesizes the evidence of a surviving elite to piece together a solid argument, not only for their existence, but for their possible agenda(s) for the twists and turns our history has taken. Along the way, he frequently touches on and incorporates evidence I, too, have encountered in my studies, and weaves that data into a neat and tidy framework.

First of all, let me say that I consider Joseph P. Farrell one of the most intriguing writers of "alternative" history and science. I have read several of his other works, and while I disagree with some of his ideas, I support some of his main arguments, particulary his idea of an ancient "Cosmic War".

But anyway, the book Genes, Giants, Monsters and Men tells of Farrell's idea that Homo sapiens sapiens was created by some earlier race to serve as serfs. After the "Cosmic War" (which you can learn more of in Farrell's book The Cosmic War), humans were left on their own, though Farrell speculates that some groups of elites survived "both in pockets scattered over the surface of the earth, and possibly in pockets altogether off this planet on other celestial bodies, wherever those might be". Over the millenia, surviving elites have been manipulating the world's economies and religions.

The manner in which Homo sapiens sapiens was created in Farrell's view is quite similar to the ideas of Zechariah Sitchin. I myself am rather skeptical on these interpretations, though I'm more open to Christian and Barbara Joy O'Brien's ideas (which Farrell reports on in this book) of genetically created "Patriarchs" (i.e. the biblical "Patriarchs") who were part human-part Annunaki/Angel/ha elohim.
In any case, whether or not one agrees with Farrell's particular conclusions, the fact remains that he has gathered up some quite intriguing evidence showing that the past was not quite as we have been traditionally led to believe.

Of particular interest, in my opinion, where the parts of the book where Farrell reports on the intriguing ideas of a number of researchers. Hear of German engineer Konstantin Meryl's idea that ancient temples were sophisticated radio transmitters.

Format: Paperback
Once again Dr. Farrell has dug deep into the roots of the injustices and malevolence we encounter on this world. His research, as always, appears impeccable and it's impossible after reading this and his other books, especially his previous one, Feral House's revealing Balylon's Banksters, not to have a clear understanding (if not a Fair and Balanced one) of the depths of corruption underlying so much of modern life and the degree to which it has become embedded in our social systems and the way we think of ourselves as human beings. The author lays his bets on human elites, descended through carefully preserved bloodlines from Nephilim cross-breeding with humans and their continuing influence on the affairs of humanity for their own selfish reasons. While there is little doubt this is so--the Bush years made this staringly obvious to all who didn't snooze through it--perhaps it's unfair to hope that Dr. Farrell, with his immense breadth of knowledge and fine intelligence, to cut still deeper to an even more fundamental layer as to who or what lies behind these human elites.

Are we as isolated on this planet, for instance, as we've been led to believe by these elites? Factoring the "Inner Worlds" of the angels into the knowledge base, how do the equations change? Could the War in Heaven, which occurs with such unpleasant regularity in just too many of the old stories to be ignored, be anything other than the revolution among the angels, thes so-called Lucifer Rebellion, said to have occurred (The Urantia Book) around 203,000 years ago? And if this was indeed found to be true how would the inclusion of this event as an actual reality which has had its continuing impact on this world, allow us a more profound insight into the basic causes of the state of this world?
