There is ample evidence of a 10,000+ yr. old fairly high tech civilization before the last ice age. They had crude 'computers' (more like the very first calculators, but slower), agriculture advanced past today in some ways, significant seafaring ability, map making skill, astronomy carried to levels past Renaissance levels, and critically the ability to accurately tell time. We are just now looking at places like Gobekli Tepe. There may enough clues to solve this mystery.
Then there's this book. It's a collection of way out-there stuff, such as unbreakable spheres dug out of billion year old solid rock. Fun to read, and some of it is likely even true. People tend to discount the edges, so push those edges WAY out there and look at it all. I do.
I would recommend this book to anyone trying to understand the topic from a different perspective, although it might not really be possible to get to the truth, because of the way or scientific system is set up, I believe any reasonable person can see that not all of the situations covered by the authors can simple be written off as coincidences. I actually used the book to write an essay for one of my archeology classes and got an -A- since I guess some of the topics covered could not be disproven. Overall if you have an open mind and are willing to put in the time this is a great book to read.
I find that most people who dismiss this book are not because the documentation isn't sound or the conclusion isn't logical. Instead, it's because they don't like the conclusion or dismiss it out of hand because of the writers' beliefs. However, the writers address that very issue in the introduction.
If you're looking for a clearly-written book resting on sound documentation relying on source material written by professional archaeologists, pick up this book. If the size intimidates you, read the condensed version, The Hidden History of the Human Race instead.
The only con i have with this book is the small type. Its really a strain on the eyes. Perhaps the authors shouldve broke this up into two books and made the type bigger. Either that or Im getting way to old.
Its a shame this isnt taught in school. I have had experiance with a history teacher teaching their own version of history and been brow beat and admonished for speaking out against it in class. It wasnt good that a giant ego could tell mis facts just to maintain his tenure. That someone would prize hearing themselves talk over the facts of history is as ugly as it comes.
Keep up the good work and thank you for helping me feel more human and more at ease within my life. Nice to know we were giants once. Honestly, thank you.
