I did expect this to be a bit like the other books - and have a bit of story line, unfortunately it's not. That's the reason why I didn't give it 5 stars.
The reason I did give it 4 stars is that I find it exceptional to be able to read about so many symbols all in one place. And it's not just the symbols, it's also about their origin, similar symbols and connected symbols. I find it fascinating. At times because it's not written like a story but more like an encyclopedia of symbols it's slightly hard to focus reading, but I have learned so much from this book - I will even recommend it to my brother (who is also into this kind of thing).
Having lived in various bits of the Pacific rim, including odd visits to pacific islands, I can guarantee that anyone who does more than speculate from an armchair -would find Churchward's ideas backed up by substantial evidence scattered through dozens of pacific rim cultures - be it the Pacific N.W. of America, Japan - or wherever. Age-old symbols, in seemingly disparate and disconnected cultures share similar myth-motifs, tell related tales of a tragic, swallowing of a mother-culture beneath the ocean. Besides the Bible, such a deluge is also mentioned in the Chinese Shih-ching (Book of History).
Thor Heyerdal noted the phenomenon - again, not a man prone to expound on distant cultures - from an armchair. Many of Churchward's ideas challenge current scientific and academic 'orthodoxy' (alleging, for instance, that the earth's large mountain ranges were formed - long after mother earth, herself). Churchward also notes anomolous facts - like archeological artifacts that show the existence of technically advanced cultures - beneath the remains of other, less advanced cultures. In most cases, such anomalies cannot be accounted for by orthodox archeology and strictly linear theories of human cultural development.
It may be disturbing to consider that a sudden geological cataclysm might throw human civilisation and culture backwards - almost wiping the slate, but after the recent tsunami - it doesn't take much imagination to think what would happen - if whole techtonic plates broke up - effectively reducing a whole continent to nothing - save scattered islands and peripheral strips of land mass. Plato,for his own part, related similar events (Atlantis) in the Timaeus. Usually mocked as 'fiction' - the fact remains that Plato was absolutely serious about it.
Churchward was thoroughly serious. Given the fact that he reconstructed the hieratic sacred alphabet of Mu, and spent years deciphering the information yielded by hundreds of artifacts from cultures around the Pacific rim - and related areas, it is absurd to suggest that his theories were without proof and ill-founded.He has given us the evidence. The greater part of it is too compelling to ignore.
Apparently the copyright was not renewed on this book, so it can be read legally on the internet. Some of the pictures are quite interesting and include pictures of the discoveries of William Niven in Mexico.
The text I consider to be mostly unsubstantiated nonsense.
