Tracing the migrations of the Denisovans and their interbreeding with Neanderthals and early human populations in Asia, Europe, Australia, and the Americas, Andrew Collins and Greg Little explore how the new mental capabilities of the Denisovan-Neanderthal and Denisovan-human hybrids greatly accelerated the flowering of human civilization over 40, years ago.
They show how the Denisovans displayed sophisticated advances, including precision-machined stone tools and jewelry, tailored clothing, celestially-aligned architecture, and horse domestication.
From Graham Hancock, best-selling author of Fingerprints of the Gods , comes a mesmerizing book that takes us on a captivating underwater voyage to find the ruins of a lost civilization that's been hidden for thousands of years beneath the world's oceans. While Graham Hancock is no stranger to stirring up heated controversy among scientific experts, his books and television documentaries have intrigued millions of people around the world and influenced many to rethink their views about the origins of human civilization.
Popular Lost Cities author David Hatcher Childress takes us into the amazing world of ancient technology, from computers in antiquity to the flying machines of the gods. Childress looks at the technology that was allegedly used in Atlantis and the theory that the Great Pyramid of Egypt was originally a gigantic power station. He examines tales of ancient flight and the technology that it involved; how the ancients used electricity; megalithic building techniques; the use of crystal lenses and the fire from the gods; and more.
As much as 7, years older than the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge, its strange buildings and rings of T-shaped monoliths - built with stones weighing from 10 to 15 tons - show a level of sophistication and artistic achievement unmatched until the rise of the great civilizations of the ancient world, Sumer, Egypt, and Babylon. In , as a result of a secret agreement reached between the Eisenhower Administration and a German breakaway group in Antarctica, a transnational corporate space program began to emerge.
The secret infusion of personnel and resources from US military contractors into Antarctica allowed this transnational corporate program to steadily grow into a major space power, which would eventually surpass and eclipse the secret space programs run by the US Navy, Air Force, and the classified space programs of other nations.
Stunning new archaeological discoveries in North America together with new genetic evidence have launched a revolution in our understanding of the remote past of our species and of the origins of civilization. Graham Hancock, the internationally best-selling author has been overwhelmingly vindicated by recent discoveries. America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization is a mind-dilating exploration of the mystery of ancient civilizations, amazing archaeological discoveries, and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.
Authors Christopher Knight and Alan Butler realized that the ancient system of geometry they presented in their earlier breakthrough study works as perfectly for the Moon as it does the Earth. On further investigation, they found a consistent sequence of beautiful integer numbers when looking at every major aspect of the Moon - no such pattern emerges for any other planet or moon in the solar system.
In addition, Knight and Butler discovered that the Moon possesses few or no heavy metals and has no core - something that should not be possible. The fate of the Lost Ark of the Covenant is one of the great historical mysteries of all time. The Bible contains hundreds of references to the Ark's power, but the Ark itself mysteriously disappears from recorded history sometime after the building of the Temple of Solomon. After 10 years of searching through the dusty archives of Europe and the Middle East, Graham Hancock has succeeded where scores of others have failed.
This intrepid journalist has tracked down the true story behind the myths and legends - revealing where the Ark is today, how it got there, and why it remains hidden. Are history books giving us the whole story? Or is civilization far more complex and for older than we have been taught? Our school textbooks barely mention the 6,year-old Sumerian civilization, yet the latest archaeological findings at sites such as Jericho, and most recently, Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, have been dated to 10, BC.
Civilization goes back at least another 10, years, if we are willing to believe what our ancestors themselves claimed. Scholars have long believed that the first civilization on Earth emerged in Sumer some 6, years ago. However, as Michael Tellinger reveals, the Sumerians and Egyptians inherited their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa and began with the arrival of the Anunnaki more than , years ago.
Sent to Earth in search of life-saving gold, these ancient Anunnaki astronauts from the planet Nibiru created the first humans as a slave race to mine gold - thus beginning our global traditions of gold obsession, slavery, and god as dominating master.
The product of 30 years of intensive research, The 12th Planet is the first book in Zecharia Sitchin's prophetic Earth Chronicles series - a revolutionary body of work that offers indisputable documentary proof of humanity's extraterrestrial forefathers. Travelers from the stars, they arrived eons ago, and planted the genetic seed that would ultimately blossom into a remarkable species Suddenly, he is outlandishly targeted by the FBI, traded in a prisoner exchange by President Eisenhower and must return to China.
Fingerprints of the Gods is the revolutionary rewrite of history that has persuaded millions of listeners throughout the world to change their preconceptions about the history behind modern society. An intellectual detective story, this unique history audiobook directs probing questions at orthodox history, presenting disturbing new evidence that historians have tried - but failed - to explain. A study of the substantial evidence for a former race of giants in North America and its year suppression by the Smithsonian Institution.
The evidence revealed in this book shows beyond reasonable doubt that an advanced civilization that flourished during the Ice Age was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12, and 11, years ago. But there were survivors - known to later cultures by names such as "the Sages", "the Magicians", "the Shining Ones", and "the Mystery Teachers of Heaven".
Few people noticed the secret codewords used by our astronauts to describe the moon. Until now, few knew about the strange moving lights they reported. George H. Leonard, former NASA scientist, fought through the official veil of secrecy and studied thousands of NASA photographs, spoke candidly with dozens of NASA officials, and listened to hours and hours of astronauts' tapes. Bill Tompkins was embedded in the world of secrecy as a teenager, when the navy took his personal ship models out of a Hollywood department store because they showed the classified locations of the radars and gun emplacements.
This book is a partial autobiography about his life to about including some of his early work for TRW. Discover an alternate history to the human race as the authors of Forbidden Archeology challenge one of the most fundamental components of the modern scientific world view. Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson discuss the work of researchers who, over the past 2 centuries, have found bones and artifacts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions of years ago.
They explain how the scientific establishment has ignored these remarkable facts because they contradict the dominant views of human origins and antiquity. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? What other book might you compare Forbidden Archeology to and why? What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike? This is a great book. Any additional comments?
This book deserves a narrator with a more teaching way of speaking. This woman needs to read bedtime stories and nothing but bedtime stories. While this was an excellent, but clipped, reading of Cremo's Forbidden Archaeology, it was, sadly, severely truncated from the plus pages in the hard copy. If you want to get a better idea of what the book says, read the book. This audio clip leaves a LOT to be desired.
It was interesting info presented, but the narration was low volume, dry, and hard to listen to. The narrating sounded very robot like and made it difficult to focus on the story. It also states that it is 2Hrs 30min long but when it started it showed 1hr48 min on my mp3 player.
This book makes some interesting points but it would be better if you had the written version so you could check the sources. There are a lot of sources.
It reminds us of a lesson that all sciences should pay attention to. Don't get locked into a particular interpretation of the facts. Leave room for further discoveries. Seems obvious but apparently it still happens all the time. And not just in archeology. The audio quality is not as good as other audible books. I have to adjust the speakers in my vehicle to hear the woman's voice over road noise. And as other reviewers have noted she does a poor job of reading.
She sounds like a spokesperson for a large bank. She must be getting paid by the hour, she seems to be in a hurry to get through it.
Audio is disconcerting but the information is still worth it. The book provides good archaeological information but the title seems to be a false claim. Nothing dramatic or eye opening enough to justify the book title 'Forbidden Archaeology'. What would have made Forbidden Archeology better?
A more lively narrator would have helped keep me from falling asleep. The information and subject matter is compelling enough that I'd recommend this book to anyone, but the delivery was dry and the narration did little to improve that fact. I'd have enjoyed hearing more of the authors voice in the writing. Instead this was just a compilation of facts that reads like a dry book report.
What could Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you? The writing could have been more narrative in style, offering more of the authors' voice. The book meanders almost aimlessly from one anecdote to another. The story line of this book reads like a slow walk on the open salt flats. A real snore. How did the narrator detract from the book? The narrator did very little to enliven the already flat read.
It was all I could do to pay attention through the monotony. The subject matter is extremely engaging and compelling. Had it been written by a truly talented author it would have been one of the most exciting books I've read. I'd like my money back. The information in this book is explosive to the standard archeological understanding. When you read this you will be ashamed of the coverup that science has put over on us for over a hundred years.
After listening to the book I am now going to purchase the hard copy. What every your view about evolutionary theory you owe it to yourself to get this. Some of the information I had heard before but chapter after chapter gave me new facts to explore.
I have listened to it now several times.
What if somebody published a page book to answer all the critics of his previous book? Like Christian creationists who accommodate science to the Bible, Cremo and Thompson are Hindu creationists that harmonize science with their sacred Vedic scriptures. The Bhagavata Purana says that men and women have lived on earth for a vast period of time called the Day of Brahma, which is composed of a thousand yuga cycles. Each yuga cycle lasts 12, "years of the gods.
Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race
