“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”—Neil Armstrong
Were Atlantis and Lemuria factual places?
Who built the pyramids and for what purpose?
How advanced was the technology of ancient cultures?
All this and more is covered in Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified: Lost Civilizations & Secrets of the Past—the latest in the all-original series that is already sparking lively debate.
Erich von Däniken, best-selling author of Chariots of the Gods, examines the Egyptian pyramids, studying their astronomical implications and what message they were meant to convey. Thomas G. Brophy, PhD, focuses on the mysterious Nabta Playa site in southern Egypt and its connection to African history.
Intrepid explorer of ancient America Frank Joseph covers archeological scandals and attempts to suppress evidence, including the Smithsonian’s “loss” of Maya skulls discovered in the Aleutian Islands. Researcher Steven Sora, author of The Lost Colony, delves into evidence that Scotland’s Picts originated in North America and were connected to the ancient Micmac tribe of the Americas.
Philip Coppens of the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens explores an ancient Celtic network of roads that may be connected to a 4,000-year-old land-based reproduction of Atlantis. Scholar and mystery explorer Oberon Zell-Ravenheart brings together the Garden of Eden, the Tree of Life, the great deluge, and the sinking of Lemuria.
Marie D. Jones & Larry Flaxman (11:11: The Time Prompt Phenomenon) explore what ancient civilizations knew about sound and resonance, and how they may have used them to build megaliths and pyramids, and achieve altered states. Journalist Nick Redfern reveals the U.S. government’s abiding interest in our ancient past, religious mysteries, and enigmatic artifacts.
Evidence of these ancient mysteries is everywhere—if you know what to look for. Whether you’re a believer, a skeptic, or somewhere in between, Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified: Lost Civilizations & Secrets of the Past is sure to entertain and educate.
Reading this book is like picking through a box of chocolates. 15 outstanding essays tantalize you with the mysteries of antiquity, Like a box of chocolates, I picked through the book looking for familiar authors. Having recently read books by Erich von Daniken and Philip Coppens, I jumped on those essays first.
I have to say that Scott Roberts’ essay “Race Interrupted, Ancient Aliens and the Evolution of Humanity” was brilliant. The essay explores Cain, Kenites, and ancient alien theories. I am reminded of the “serpent seed doctrine.”
The “Notes” section at the end of each essay gives the reader a good jumping off point for your own research. While the index at the end of the book is very handy, it should have been expanded to more than just 4 pages.
All in all, it is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in History, Archeology, Religion, and Ancient Alien theories. It’s a wonderfully thought-provoking book that should instigate heated discussions at the dinner table.
