This has gone beyond the limitations of our existing capacity to think and tries to relate with some other sources. What we look and what we perceive are two different things. Either we are looking ceratin things as they appear or we are taught to look certain things in a particular fashion. So, the author has tired of breaking the cycle of it provides us with something different. Though, he does not take the credibility about his The book is not the convention treatment of archaeological sites.
Though, he does not take the credibility about his information about that will be totally right. However, the book will let you explore interesting and some meaning facts that will change your perception of thinking.
Apr 20, Siobhan rated it really liked it Shelves: fun-read , non-fiction. This book isn't about mainstream archeology, its about the many questions people have about human history. Questions like, "if homosapiens have been around for , years, how come in only the last or years have we become civilized?
What did we do before that? I This book isn't about mainstream archeology, its about the many questions people have about human history. It has us question what we truly know about ourselves as a species. We haven't been investigating our ancient past for very long, every day a new discovery sends archeology reeling. So embrace the fact we know nothing and enjoy every discovery and theory.

He even touches on Atlantis and some of the other "mythical" areas. I had heard this book was a bit slow, and in some places it is, but I still enjoyed it all the same. For me it was a great read! Jan 05, Mick Pletcher rated it really liked it. This book was most impressive in giving details on different parts of the world where technological triumphs were achieved in times in history when it would have been an impossibility, even in today's world. One example they use in the book is the Inca Empire where blocks were ton blocks were moved and put into place with precision to the millimeter.
The book is most intriguing! Jul 27, Amber Martingale added it. This is going on the metaphorical "I'm pulling a Jocasta and stabbing my eyeballs out before I hang myself" shelf. Firstly, the editor or proofreader didn't check to make sure that paragraphs weren't repeated, or even partially repeated, on the adjacent page.
Childress says that the ruined city of Petra is in the Negev region of Israel. You're out, Mr. Mar 17, Matt rated it it was ok. Mayan bulldozers? Atlantis electricity? Ancient Indian flying machines? This book has it all! Childress, though needs an editor, lot of mistakes in this work. This book is hilarious. Great pseudo-science. He is a bit short on his explanation of time-frames and in general, proof of any kind of his really weird claims.
Quite funny though. I might just have to read his book "the anti-gravity handbook" when my body starts sagging. Jan 11, Tom Walsh added it. This was page after page of enlightenment! Did you know the Meditteranean Sea was aland mass? Did you know that there was a pre-flood civilization that marks us as "advanced" 10, years ago? Read the book. David Childress hopscotches the globe with the energy and speed of the Ancient's communication grid!
I'll be searching for more from this scholar! May 26, Bistra Stoimenova rated it it was amazing. I found this book in a random bookstore at the resort we were staying for our summer vacation more than 10 years ago. I've always been fascinated by ancient history and culture so this book looked really interesting. What I found between the covers, however, was not only interesting but amazing.
In terms of revelations, in terms of information. If you are interested in history or just need to polish your knowledge a bit - this book is definitely for you. One of my favourites, for sure. Jan 02, Kari rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , history-related. This books goes into detail about many of the topics covered in the History Channel's show Ancient Aliens. It includes pictures and many first hand accounts from archaeologists and explorers.
While I don't ascribe to many of these theories totally, they are interesting to read and provide an alternate theory as to how ancient civilizations built their monoliths and for what purposes. Jan 17, Ashwin rated it liked it. Reading this book made me think, have we progressed in our life style compared to ancient people. Were our ancestors far more advanced than what we are? Proofs and information in hand does point in this direction.
