"If 'fringe science', or 'voodoo science' (to use a couple of establishment buzzwords) interests you; if you are open to non-traditional views of the universe (potential anti-gravity, archeo-astronomy, alien life forms, and ESP among others); if you simply want to see the 'other side' of the arguments; this book should be an interesting read for you." (Michael Gleason, Witchgrove.com, Mar 2008)
"This book serves as a compelling, if controversial, introduction to the true history of alternative and New Science research, as well as fascinating possible truths about the world we live in." (The Beacon, Oct - Dec 2008)
"In these pages, you will find clearly delineated arguments as to why the materialistic prejudice of the scientific establishment, committed to preserving funding for its own projects, is detrimental to any scientific inquiry that thinks outside the box." (Chiwah, The Light Connection, June 2008)
"This volume may interest those who study public attitudes toward science or the boundary between science and pseudoscience." (F.N. Egerton, emeritus, University of Wisconsin, Choice, Vol. 46, No. 01, Sep 2008)
"We are coming to realize that consciousness not only affects matter but creates it, not the other way around, which is the traditional Newtonian view. Read what 19 cutting-edge scientists have to say about this and other "out of the box" discoveries that are being suppressed." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide, Issue 27, Sep/Oct 2008)
" . . . a review recommended for any serious new age library." (The Midwest Book Review, May 08)
“Forbidden Science is a dangerous book. And by dangerous I mean that in a sense of awakening.” (Horror News.net, November 2010)
From the Back Cover
Following the model of his bestselling Forbidden History and Forbidden Religion, J. Douglas Kenyon has assembled forty-two essays by nineteen researchers from his bimonthly journal, Atlantis Rising, material that explores science and technology that has been suppressed by the orthodox scientific community--from the true function of the Great Pyramid and the megaliths at Nabta Playa to Immanuel Velikovsky’s astronomical insights, free energy from space, cold fusion, and Rupert Sheldrake’s research into telepathy and ESP.
There is an organized war going on in science between materialistic theory and anything that could be termed spiritual or metaphysical. For example, Masaru Emoto’s research into the energetics of water, although supported by photographic evidence, has been scoffed at by mainstream science because he has asserted that humans affect their surroundings with their thoughts. The materialism or absolute skepticism of the scientific establishment is detrimental to any scientific inquiry that thinks outside the box. This mentality is interested in preserving funding for its own projects, those that will not rock the establishment. From Tesla’s discovery of alternating current to Robert Schoch’s re-dating of the Sphinx, this book serves as a compelling introduction to the true history of alternative and New Science research.
J. Douglas Kenyon is the editor and publisher of Atlantis Rising and the editor of the bestselling Forbidden History and Forbidden Religion. He lives in Montana.

I'd approach this book with an open mind. Not quite facts, but perhaps not quite fiction either.
It's definitely an interesting book with some interesting "facts" (I'd call them theories more).
Good to get your brain going and it's up to you to decide if this is something you see as true or not.
I think alot of booKS like this have a lot of truth in them, but aren't necessarily completely true.
Either way they are very fun to read and there's no harm in exercising your brain
Chapter 1: According to the author, two men, Fleischmann and Pons, claimed to discover how to use palladium to generate something called "cold fusion". The author makes it very clear that a particular critic, named Parks, hates the idea of cold fusion. The proof that cold fusion works is that this critic quotes someone who made a mathematical error somewhere and, apparently, he can't even do basic science. Wow! I am now totally convinced that cold fusion actually works! Not. Question: What does slinging mud at an alleged critic have to do with proving that cold fusion actually works? Where are the results that cold fusion actually works? Sadly, this book doesn't have the answer.
While about half of the ideas in this book were new to me, I have encountered many other ideas in, sometimes significantly, different contexts with a credible source and a totally different explanation. While there are some valid things that will just never stand up to the deep scrutiny of mainstream science, if any of the ideas in this book have actual validity in reality, the authors did not do any of them justice. Wishful thinking, finding connections where there are none, warping existing theories and ideas to fit a particular viewpoint, conspiracy theories, photographs of unknown origins with unknown subject matter and fictional descriptions to support a claim, pointing fingers and slinging mud at detractors does not make for proof of anything.
Conclusion: If you want to just believe wildly implausible and totally unsupported claims without looking for actual proof, then this book is for you. If you want to find support of potentially valid ideas, natural processes, conspiracies, etc, then skip this book as it doesn't contain any them.

We are finally waking up to how new information is suppressed and censored by powerful and entrenched organizations. This is due in part to our tendency to let in only the new information that supports previously held beliefs. In the academic realm it has more of a financial purpose, which is to maintain grants and funding for research projects. So this book is for the rest of us, who live in the reality that we are living through the greatest transformation in recorded history. We are coming to realize that consciousness not only affects matter but creates it, not the other way around, which is the traditional Newtonian view. Read what 19 cutting-edge scientists have to say about this and other "out of the box" discoveries that are being suppressed.

In reading books like this I try to figure out if there is any scientific / sensible basis to this kind of thing. Sorry but I'm not seeing it. Read morePublished on June 18, 2012 by EZPowell
Where do I start? This book has little or nothing to do with science. It's main focus is on conspiracy theories and folklore. Read morePublished on November 24, 2011 by Dean Sylvester
