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.

Author lays out a very interesting argument.

In COSMIC WAR, Dr Farrell tackles a subject previously muddled if not thoroughly mucked beyond redemption by the likes of Z. Sitchen and E. Von Daniken. If you are not put off by the ruthless wackiness this subject has already inspired, Farrell will repay your patience many times over.

The book's premise is that Planet Earth was, at minimum, one of the proverbial ants under the dancing elephants at some point at least ten thousand years ago, but more likely much more distant in time from the present. It was a war, a real war, in "heaven" if you like, but very decidedly remembered by most world cultures: Farrell's strength as a researcher is finding nooks and crannies you'd never imagine existed at all, in folklore and lurid biblical accounts of giants, as one example, that, once assembled and placed in a reasonable context, actually support the case for this ancient but galaxy-shattering war.

And make no mistake: Farrell is not outlining some penny-ante Star Wars type shoot-em-up. As another example, he is able to include fairly recent and well-vetted research and speculation about pulsars which, placed in context, indicate this war was, from our point of view, almost vast beyond our ability to imagine. Farrell wisely frames it all as techical speculation, but there is no doubt that human prehistory has some real shockers coming for H Sap. When these shockers start to make the newspapers, I don't doubt they'll look at least something like Farrell's outline indicates. Unless the truth is worse than any of us are capable of speculating, that is (and there is a chance of that, too.

This is about the third of fourth of Dr. Farrell's books that I've read recently and I must say his research and analysis hold up very well. He addresses and answers the many anomalies of the Standard Model of Physics and also the many historical oddities that have been ignored or brushed aside. His version of the history of our planet actually makes more sense than anything you might have been taught in school. Of course, many of his conclusions by necessity have to be speculative, but it's speculation that looks to be closer to the target. And he makes his case in a way that's understandable, accurate and fascinating.

Format: Paperback
A fascinating and detailed study offering an iconoclastic commentary that rejects traditionally naturalist and materialist assumptions to account for the presence of the asteroid belt in our solar system, Joseph P. Farrell's "The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics and Ancient Texts" asserts that what is commonly attributed in the scientific community as the result of gravity driven accretions of material, the asteroid belt is in fact the remains of an exploded planet whose catastrophic demise was brought about by a Cosmic War. Drawing upon extraterrestrial artifacts, novel ideas in contemporary physics, and the texts of ancient myths, Farrell intriguingly postulates an ancient interplanetary war fought out within our solar system with weapons of horrific power and sophisticated military technology. "The Philosophy Of Rich" is a fascinating read and especially commended to the attention to alternative archeology students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in ancient legends and cosmology. Also very highly recommended and iconoclastic reading are Joseph Farrell's previous books: "The Giza Death Star"; "The Giza Death Star Deployed"; "The Giza Death Star Destroyed"; "Reich of the Black Sun; and "SS Brotherhood of the Bell".

Don't get me wrong, this book is awesome. If I had read it before any of the author's previous works though, I would have completely dismissed it.

I had always taken the ancient astronaut idea with a grain of salt. Anyone who hears the stories of Quetzecoatl and a few others can see that it is possible, even likely that travelers have visited Earth in the past. The modern question of aliens is not a subject covered here, nor should it be.

This book is basically an investigation of esoteric myth and science combined with a modern understanding of physics. To see if they converge at all. And they do, fantastically.

The place to really start though is not here. After reading the book: "SS: Brotherhood of the Bell" by the same author, I was convinced that Dr. Farrell is doing his homework. That subject I am very familiar with, which enabled me to verify and trust the author's work. In that book, he kept referring to the Giza Death Star Series and Reich of the Black Sun, which I had to read because SS Brotherhood was so awesome. I was not disappointed.

After reading and thoroughly enjoying SS: Brotherhood of the Bell, I read and really took seriously the Giza Death Star books (3 of them). I have become convinced through this author's arguments that something took place in our solar sytem long, long ago. That the pyramids represent proof of a highly advanced form of physics involved with their technological purpose: weaponry.

It is far-fetched, but actually pretty reasonable if you read the arguments and try to understand the science.

This book follows the Giza Death Star books and may not be the best place to start, unless your already at a place where this stuff seems reasonable. Then by all means. Either way, don't pass it up. It's an extremely valuable nugget of that piece we are all looking for: Meaning.
