Review

"Here is an author to watch. Here is someone who is really interested in the truth and will take us there at all costs. If science as a whole had a dozen more thinkers of this courage and tenacity then we would all be celebrating the millennium in the warmth of a new golden-age." (Rand Flem-ath , co-author of The Atlantis Blueprint and When the Sky Fell)

". . . a fascinating piece of research which does much to bring the biblical world of Eden back into the historical spotlight." (David Rohl, Egyptologist, author of A Test of Time)

EGYPT / ANCIENT MYSTERIES

“Here is an author to watch. Here is someone who is really interested in the truth and will take us there at all costs. If science as a whole had a dozen more thinkers of this courage and tenacity then we would all be celebrating the millennium in the warmth of a new golden-age.”
--Rand Flem-ath, coauthor of The Atlantis Blueprint and When the Sky Fell

“. . . a fascinating piece of research that does much to bring the biblical world of Eden back into the historical spotlight.”
--David Rohl, Egyptologist, author of A Test of Time

Hidden deep below Egypt’s Giza plateau is perhaps the key to unlocking the mysteries of the Great Pyramid. Built using a technology unequaled even today, the ancient Egyptians claimed they inherited their advanced culture from a race of giants who lived during a previous age known as Sep Tepi, the First Time.

In his earlier companion book From the Ashes of Angels, Andrew Collins provided sound historical evidence to show that this strange race, described in ancient mythology as Elder gods and fallen angels, founded pre-Pharonic Egypt. Now, in Gods of Eden, he describes their remarkable achievements.

Assembling clues from archaeology, mythology, and religion, Collins shows us how this prehistoric global society mastered acoustic technology and employed the use of sound to raise heavy objects into the air and pierce holes through solid rock. It was with this technology that they were able to construct pyramids and other gigantic structures everywhere from Egypt to Peru, Mexico to ancient Tibet. Collins explains the traces left by these Elder gods from ancient texts worldwide and demonstrates their role in the foundations of ancient astronomy over 10,000 years ago. With findings based on more than twenty years of research and scholarship, Collins reveals the fascinating historical destiny of this fallen race and defines the imprints and legacies they left behind at the genesis of civilization.

ANDREW COLLINS has been investigating the idea of an advanced civilization existing before recorded history since 1979. He is the author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gateway to Atlantis and is chairman of Britain’s premier annual forum of alternative history and forbidden archaeology. He lives in Essex, England.

Format: Paperback
After his sensational "debut" with "From The Ashes To Angels", Andrew Collins gets one step further with this well-structured, well-planned and well-presented study on the apparent existence of a "lost and advanced civilization." Walking on the similar paths with Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval and John Anthony West, Collins traces the footprints of the ancient knowledge and proposes an "antediluvian" civilization which could well be the roots of the now-lost wisdom, Ancient Egyptians once had.
The books starts with some basic facts and "anomalies" of the most enigmatic monuments of the ancient world: Great Sphinx, Valley Temple and the enormous pyramids of Giza plateu. Quoting the pioneer Egyptologists' accounts on the subject (such as W. Flinders Petrie) he underlines the perfect craftsmanship of these monuments without apparent existence of essential tools to form the hard and large stone blocks which weighted hundreds of tones.
Then he presents an alternative explanation for this excellent masonry: Probable usage of now-lost "sound technology" to levitate the giant stone blocks. He goes on with convincing arguments, supported with some "enigmatic" verses from the Old Testament. His conclusion is an ancient (probably "antediluvian") technology which was preserved by some cults in Ancient Egypt (in Heliopolis and Thebes) then somehow obtained by Biblical Moses, who was supposedly raised by Egyptians. During the course of his work, Collins also suggests his dating of Biblical Exodus.

I accidentally came upon Andrew Collins when researching material on Atlantis, and read his excellent GATEWAY TO ATLANTIS. I had to go to Amazon.uk to find his previous works. Good thing they are now readily availble in the USA.
GODS OF EDEN is one of those books that one needs to pick up periodically to mull over. It's nearly impossible to take in all of Collins' theories in one go. But he makes impressive arguments that the Egyptian culture is much older than traditional archeologists will admit. While kicking a bit of dust at the stodgy, old Egyptologists at the British Museum, Collins also deftly avoids the smoke and mirrors of "pyramidiots" old and new.
I admit he loses me a bit when he travels too far afield of Egypt, but I attribute the fault with myself and not with him. The book is copiously footnoted (they make good reading in themselves) and well researched.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent read. The opening chapter is largely a reworking of Hancock's "Fingerprints of the Gods" but after that the author breaks new ground. The greater part of the book is concerned with ancient Egypt and the mechanics of how the pyramids and other structures were actually built. The premise is that the large stone blocks were moved by use of high frequency sound waves which resonated to the extent that the stones were rendered weightless. Although this might sound absurd on first reading, the author offers a thorough analysis and a huge amount of compelling evidence as to why this option should be taken seriously. What is lacking from this book, however, is any mention of Ed Leedskalanin's Coral Castle in Florida, where stones up to 30 tons were moved by a single 100 lb man during the 1950s. Leedskalinin claimed to have cracked the secret of the Pyramid Builders. To date, how the Coral Castle was built remains a mystery.

The notion that there was a high tech civilization on earth before the Great Flood is hardly original, but Mr. Collins does provide extra corroborative evidence that is not found elsewhere, so if this is your interest, it is a book worth buying.

Andrew Collins is great for coming up with original mysteries of history. Unlike many alternative authors who jump on the Jesus and the grail bandwagon collins comes up with cool topics. This book is one of the only books I have found that deal with sound technology and its ability to levitate objects. I have allways been interested in old tales of large stones being moved with sound. Collins does a good job with the very small amount of information availible to him. And I loved the story of the 19th century inventore John Keely. This man was a genious who like many eccentric people keep his cards close to him. Then all his knowledge was lost after his death. Maybe he was a man ahead of his time like Tesla.

Format: Paperback
I would give this book 5 stars for a good research done. But there are some very strange arguments.
Notably, the author actually relies on revelations by psychics. Well, this seems too much for me.
Very irritating is the author's manner of attaching words like "unquestionably" to what should be properly regarded as wild suppositions.
Many statements of facts raise doubts, especially when skilled artisan work and agriculture are assigned to 8000-9000 BCE.
The author attempts to make a point that ancient Egyptians had technology, unavailable even now. That's because we can't build pyramids like they did. So, what technology is that? Believe it or not, the author spends much effort to prove they possessed... saws. You got it right, the incredible technology was the brass saw, perhaps with sapphires on the edge. Of course, this is more than what is normally allowed for that time, but come on, you can't say someone built the pyramids with brass saws and then claim they had higher technology than we do.
Another proof is equally strange, although in its own way. It is commonly thought that Egyptians employed drills under pressure of 1 to 2 tons. This equipment is no rocket science, you see. But the author prefers to conjecture they used ultrasonic drills. Excuse me, but ultrasonic drill should work like a hammer, it won't leave spiral traces, like those found.
Other traces of this antedeluvian culture are equally unimpressive. There are no factories or spacecraft, just a few stones and artefacts, worked up better than we expect of this era. But doesn't it make sense to question their dating, then?
Authors' hypothesis on using sound to lift stones, right or wrong, is pure fantasy.
