Product description

In June 1990, Egyptologist John West accompanied geologist Robert Schoch to Cairo, to take a closer look at the Sphinx. For almost two decades, West had been arguing that the erosion of the Sphinx revealed that it had been weathered by rain rather than windblown sand. If that was true, then the Sphinx had to be thousands of years older than Egyptologists believe - after all, Egypt has had no rain in thousands of years. They concluded that the Sphinx dates back to 7000 BC - a time when in fact there was not supposed to be any civilization anywhere in the world - and has been built by the survivors of the vanished civilization which Plato called Atlantis. Rand Flem-Ath and Colin Wilson's book crosses continents, arguing that this earlier civilization did exist but was destroyed around 9600 BC.

Editorial reviews

Was Atlantis buried beneath the Antarctic 9,6000 years ago? Flem-Ath and Wilson seek to prove by geology, astronomy and selective analysis of the subject's literature that mankind's earthly existence could encompass 100,000 years. The usual suspects are present; Tula, Easter Island, Stonehenge and Rosslyn, but enhanced by previously undiscussed additions all logically connected to the Great Pyramid at Gisa. Such large coverage of the available surprises with the omission of the undersea cave paintings discovered in the South of France, believed to date back 40,000 years. The skilled comprehension of perspective tangibly supports the theory of highly intelligent, scientifically knowledgeable ancestors. It is not explained how so much of this expertise was lost, for so many millennia, in all parts of the world. Despite this lacuna the narrative flows as a sea-bound travelogue between continents and the bizarre discoveries of intrepid explorers. Whether inspecting the 'Mystery spheres' at Costa Rica or puzzling through the moving Poles of the earth which places Lhasa on the equator, plausible explanations will provoke a mixture of thought, for some acceptance and others incredulity. The amount of research is impressive as is the exposure of bigotry espoused by both religious and scientific institutions who choose not to examine facts or theories on their proven merit. The authors should be commended for bravery in publishing their findings. (Kirkus UK)
