Do yourself a favor, read the originals! This book adds nothing new to the discussion! Rather, it serves as a "book report" on the work of others, presented in breathless style, with 15 exclamation points on every page! What is up with all the exclamation points?! I could have lived with less punctution and more, I don't know, ideas! Since I've read most of the books this reports on, it was ultimately pointless!
Start with Charles Hapgood and the Flem-Ath book, When the Wky Fell!
The math used in this book is "correct" as far as the calculations themselves go. The author's addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are correctly figured as written. The problem though, is that Where he gets his numbers from, and the Reasons behind his figures and logic-chains unfortunately has NO logical validity.
Numbers and math can be manipulated however people see fit; that's what mathematics is good for - manipulation. Much like how we can formulate any sentence we like in a language, even if the sentence is grammatically correct that does not mean that it conveys a fact.
Purple bananas sometimes have evil intentions; cats with feet on their head instead of ears should be wary of them.
This could be a grammatically correct example of a statement in the English language, but it does not prove the existence of oddly colored bananas, the sentience of fruit, or anatomically freaky felines. The math in this book is much like the sentence above and would not be given any weight as "proof" to Anybody with a strong mathematical background.
I recommend to anybody following along with the math in this book to question the author's selection of numbers. Where did he get most of the numbers from that he uses in his proofs?
Where did he get the number 68,302 from to begin with, and why did he decide to divide it by 26 and 37? Further, why would he then subtract the result?Read more ›
Whats wrong with this?
1.) Most discoveries and research successes in science are by accident...true research is not with a set conclusion. SETI researches did not intend to find microwave background radiation...but they did. Penicillin was discovered on accident. Pavlov's theory of conditioned response was on accident. On the other hand...these guys are already convinced the world will blow up in 2012...and base their research to prove it. Most true science is done in reverse...your research leads to your conclusion...not the other way around.
2.) The actual "research" in this book is laughable at best. Their are no controls on what numbers they use, where they get their formulas from, etc. I'm sure if I looked into it I could "Mathmatically prove" that I'm related to Jesus by using my height, my D.O.B., my Zodiac sign, and the distance between my elbow and wrist. All im saying is that people can manipulate numbers however they want to prove however they want.
3.) One of the cornerstones of the book is that when the stars (BTW Venus is not a star) are in a certain position....the sun's magnetic field will go bonkers, causing extreme geo-magnetic activities on the Earth...and that such an event has already occured about 11,000 years ago.Read more ›
