Over the past centuries, researchers have found bones and articrafts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored or forgotten these remarkable facts. Why? Because they contradict dominant views of human origins and antiquity. Evolutionary prejudices, deeply held powerful groups of scientists, have acted as what Michael A.Cremo and Richard L.Thompson call a knowledge filter. And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins According to Cremo and Thompson, we have come to accept a picture of prehistory that is largely incorrect. This book is a call for a change in today's arbitrarly rigid minset. Deploying an unexpectedly great number of convincing facts, deeply illuminated with critical analysis. Cremo and Thompson challenge us to rethink our understanding of human origins, identity and destiny. In forbidden archeology, we accompany the authors on a fascinating intellectual expedition.We take part in the literary excavation of a vast store of hidden knowledge that adds a new dimension to our understanding of the history of our spieces. The journey of exploration takes us accross five continents to key archeological sites. Some long forgotten, some the centre of ongoing research. Along the way, we encounter many famous and infamous pioneers of prehistoric research, all with secrets to share. "Forbidden archeology" is bound to inspire controversy, challenging as ti does one of the most fundamental components of the modern scientific world view. Meticulously researched and carefully written. The book takes us to a crossroads of knoeledge and invites us to take a courageous first step in a new direction of truth.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Michael A Cremo is a research associate of the Bhaktivedanta Institute specializing in the history and philosophy of science. His persistent investigations during the eight years of writing Forbidden Archeology documented a major scientific cover-up. Richard L. Thompson, founding member of the Bhaktivedanta Institute, received his Ph.D. in mathematics form Cornell University.
in human origins. We've been told over and
over that the fossil record supports the theory
of evolution, but Thompson and Cremo
demonstrate otherwise. Don't believe what they
say? The book is fully documented so it is easy
enough to check what they say.
My own conversations with dedicated evolutionists
about the book reveal that they
1) Haven't read the book, but dismiss it anyway,
2) Misrepresent what the book says, or
3) Rely on refutations that misrepresent original
The only failing of the book is that it doesn't provide
an alternate explanation for the fossil record
However, before one sets out to read Forbidden Archeology one might do well to take a look at the philosophical context in which the disciplines of Archeology and Anthropology are set. Along with a general agnostic view on man and his situation in Cosmos these sciences have also been strongly tainted by a sort of industrial-age philosophy - let us call it Transformism - which by now has been taught in our schools long enough to have become almost instinctive in our consciousness. This belief has also been strengthened by becoming entangled with the idea of an incessantly evolving technology. Just as computers get more powerful processors so would early humans have gotten larger brains. Just as airplanes get swifter and more economic so would now-extinct birds have become the efficient fliers of today.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
The sheer volume and detailed discussion of "anomolous" data compiled in this book is staggering: traces of the hand of man (tools, etc.) found in strata millions of years before his supposed appearance on the evolutionary scene; off-the-cuff dismissals of such evidence by influential scientists for sometimes contradictory reasons (and sometimes almost none at all, save that "it simply cannot be"); the findings of distinguished, top-notch scientists ridiculed and being branded as heresy for going against the prevailing wisdom.
It is instructive that most scientists today are totally unaware of the controversial evidence presented here, even in their fields of specialty. If we are able to do as the authors ask and evaluate the evidence as it stands without prejudice against their (eastern) religious beliefs, we might well find that the underpinnings for their belief in the great antiquity of the human race is at least as solid as that of the ruling paradigm - and probably even more so. Even if we do not agree with their conclusions, an open-minded inquiry into these findings will certainly show current theories to be, at best, serious negligence in blissful ignorance - Mr. Magoo in a lab coat - or, at worst, anti-science.
