Book Description

For the first time ever, over five dozen top-secret military,government, intelligence and corporate witnesses to secret projects tell their true stories which disclose the greatest covert program in world history. This explosive testimony by actual government insiders proves that UFOs are real, that some are of extraterrestrial origin and that super-secret programs have energy and propulsion technologies that will enable humanity to begin a new civilization - a civilization without pollution, without poverty - a civilization capable of traveling among the stars.This is not just a story about UFOs, ETs and secret projects: It is the story of how 50 years of human evolution have been deferred and how these secret projects contain the real solution to the world energy crisis, the environmental crisis and world poverty. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars I know Steven Greer and he is a truthful researcher!
One of the best books in the Alien/UFO cover-up genre! Besides 'Disclosure', try Dr. Paul Hill's "Unconventional Flying Objects", "Alien Rapture" by Edgar Fouche and Brad Steiger (who wrote the origional 'Project Blue Book'), "The Day After Roswell" by Colonel Corso (Presidental Staff member), and "Alien Agenda" by Jim Marrs (Author of 'Crossfire' - another bestseller).

I know and have talked to Steven Greer and he is a truthful man who has spent his life trying to uncover the truth of the Alien/UFO cover-up.

Stevem Greer has wrote probaly the best ufo related book in the recent few years with Disclosure. It is frightning as you have to stop and remind yourself this is not fiction but a truthful account of our brave men and women serving this country in the military and the private sector who's reward for service in the above top secret world is intimidation and DOD blacklisting to maintain the status quo.

These individul accounts of our Government hiding alien technology from the public in illegal fashion using and hiding behind nation security acts is quite an eye opener. You will never look at History again in the same fashion after reading this book. Read the reviews on the books I've mentioned and you will be compelled to read them if you want the most accurate information in this genre. (EF)

5-0 out of 5 stars Compelling, absolutely the best evidence yet.

I have read the book. I have watched the DVD. I have seen the broadcasts that aired on this project. Sadly September 11th completely eclipsed what should have been the most important news event of 2001. Maybe even the most important news event ever. Much like a UFO, Disclosure simply vanished off the radar. Hardly anybody knows about this which is a great shame and an enormous indignity to all concerned. The timing of Disclosure was terrible, the worst time for any Disclosure on this topic. The theme of Disclosure is all about peace and harmony, the rollback on space weapons and the distribution of US military owned free-energy systems, all because - the aliens have laded and we have got some of their technology. In light of the events on 911 Disclosure will never see its proposals in our lifetime. It is a dark day for UFO researchers and a dark day for the world in general.

Okay so let's get down to the brass here for a moment. Greer (a former Medical Doctor who was a manager of an ER ward) has concluded by researching the UFO phenomena that the US government possesses UFOs in the most secret of secret black budget projects. He believes that some members of the government are aware of this but most are not. He believes that some Presidents have been aware of it but most are not. These are huge, almost irrational assertions to make. To understand these allegations we must look at what Project Disclosure is.

Project Disclosure is all about "EXPERT witness testimony" of the very terrestrial kind. In order to understand Disclosure we must learn what an "expert witness" is. Expert witnesses are usually witnesses who testify in court and they usually make their living of nothing else but court testimony. They mainly work for risk security management groups, the police and the medical industry. An expert witness is hired by a lawyer for a trial. The expert witness is told about a case and his area of expertise is requested. A true expert witness will say that they can help the lawyer or that they can not help the lawyer based on their findings. The most common type of expert witness is a forensic expert such as a DNA expert or a fingerprint expert. A true expert witness is usually unbiased, meaning that they will look at the evidence in their area of expertise and say whether or not their evidence reflects what the lawyer needs. If they find that the evidence is negative of what the lawyer needs the lawyer pays the expert witness for their time and usually does not use them. If the expert witness has value to the lawyer then they use them. Some expert witnesses just take money and will say anything but mostly these frauds are exposed early on in the game and thus are not used by lawyers because of their bad track record which only proves negative to the lawyers who use them.

Greer has taken every single witness to the UFO phenomena that he can find and has scratched those who he felt did not have much proof to back up their claims. He then is left with a list of people who he feels are close to expert witness quality and has interviewed them thoroughly. Slowly by a process of elimination he is left with what he sees as the best witness testimonies that can stand up in a court of law, or in this case, in a congressional hearing. The majority of Greer's expert witnesses are government and military personal. These are people who have been entrusted with very important tasks. These are people who we depend on a daily bases. Every single one of these couple of hundred expert witnesses, who Greer presents here in this book along with their testimonies, are entirely credible. Most of these expert witnesses are the cream of the crop in our society. They are some of the best brains in the business. Some of them have even worked for the government in secret UFO projects! Most of them have signed agreements and sworn statements to NEVER divulge what they know. On this front Greer has also recruited Daniel Sheehan who believes Greer has a case. Who is Sheehan? Sheehan is a lawyer out to protect these people who have now broken their oaths of silence. He has prosecuted Government spooks before in the Contra affair. During the Vietnam War, he defended the New York Times' access to the Pentagon Papers. In 1972, he represented Watergate burglar James McCord in tracing the plumbers' chain of command directly to the heart of the Nixon White House. Sheehan believes that Greer and all of his expert witnesses have a case. All of the witnesses have vowed to tell their story before a congressional hearing.

Greer believes that the UFO phenomena is a scandal of the likes we have never seen or known. When all is said and done this IS THE MOST COMPELLING CASE for the UFO phenomena to date. The only thing that could possibly go beyond this case is to actually acquire a UFO or an Alien and smack it down on the Whitehouse lawn or throw it under the nose of the scientific community. However some of these expert witnesses have worked for the Whitehouse and are part of the scientific community. All of them have impeccable credentials.

The bottom line here is that ALL of these expert witnesses, ALL OF THEM, must be mistaken in order for Disclosure to be labelled inaccurate, false, not true or even lies. I say ALL because if ONE case, just ONE case!, proves to be the real deal then Ladies and Gentlemen the UFO phenomena is indeed real and we are not alone, period - end of discussion, end of debate.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dark angels down
A powerhouse of a book that is virtually unique in its scope and in the way it tackles the issues head on. There will still be those who claim to doubt Greer's conclusions and even the existence of Aliens, but who cares?

The skeptics and their infantile resistance are now completely irrelevant. The existence of Aliens, to use a catch-all term, is a no-brainer - it is not in question.

The question is, can we deal with the full implications of Disclosure?

It is one thing to begin to introduce the previously suppressed New Technologies in order to help out the human race and accelerate the healing of the planet, but quite another to come clean about the full extent of the Alien presence.

Way back in the sixties, the Brookings Institute concluded that the human race was just too primitive and spiritually immature to deal with the introduction of an Alien race, however benign. Many UFO buffs have dismissed those findings, because they themselves were totally ready for Contact. I agree. Most UFO buffs ARE ready, and have been for decades.

And then there's the rest of humanity.

The burning of Harry Potter books - a children's fantasy - was a very serious reminder that even the slightest threat to certain people's religious belief systems can trigger madness. And if you think that was just a few nuts, think again.

Real live Aliens, with their archetypally demonic appearance are a little up the scale from Joanne Rowling's roly-poly fictional characters.

Yes, the human race has a right to know, but whether they should be told at this point in their evolution, is quite another matter. Believe me, the control groups who have had direct Contact have not fared very well, and the idea of unleashing a Pandora's Box of global hysteria - a one-way thing - has to be taken very seriously.

Before anybody thinks I am spouting Disinformation, nothing could be further from the truth. We just need to approach the idea of letting the humans into the light with extreme caution. Steven has written a remarkable book, but the greatest emphasis now needs to be on how do we approach final Disclosure, and more importantly, when.

After the insult of the Roswell denials, many of us are just itching for the Government to come clean and admit to their vast catalog of lies. But not at any price, guys. It can't be at any price.

4-0 out of 5 stars The big picture unveiled.
If you are anything like I am and find this subject matter interesting and entertaining, prepare your self for a shocker. After reading various books in this matter, I find this one to be significantly different from the rest. First let me warn you if you want to read up on wild theories and reacquaint your self with old overtold ufo tales and accounts, go find another book, there are many out there to keep you entertained. Now! If you are intereted in reading up on a multitude of sworn written statements and accounts of worldwide professionals, scientists, military and non-military personel regarding the UFO issue then this is the book that you want. NO Sci-Fi thriller, No wild theories, NO pandering to the readers, solid statements and solid facts. You can practically jump arround the book and find mind blowing depositions by intelligent, credible people regarding this issue. My only wish is for someone from a media channel in the likes of Discovery or Nova to jump on the opporunity to publicise the videotaped interviews which Greer and his band of crusaders have in their possecion. Maybe this would light a flame under some of our politicians and the public atlarge to look into this matter, but that is my opinion. Regardless, it is an interesting piece of journalism more than anythingelse. ... Read more

Zecharia Sitchen's The 12th Planet is the starting point on a quest that spans six books and 20 years worth of ancient aliens, genetic manipulation, and scrutiny of linguistic minutiae. If we trust Sitchen's translation abilities, we must be prepared for the imminent return of an alien race who created us some 3,600 years ago. The 12th Planet is perhaps the best written of Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series; full of example after example of ancient Sumerian passages, astronomical observations, archaeological finds, and technological coincidences supporting his theories. The price we pay for all this evidence is a bit of a dry read at times, but the ideas Sitchin proposes are more than scintillating enough to make up for the overtly scholastic tone of his text. --Brian Patterson ...

3-0 out of 5 stars An interesting but badly flawed premise
Okay, I can buy the idea that the Earth might have been visited by alien cultures in the distant past (in fact, considering what a fascinating species we obviously are, I'd be surprised if they hadn't.) I can also buy off on the idea that these ancient visitors might have been worked into the mythology of many cultures. I'm even open to the idea that life was 'seeded' on this planet and that homo sapiens may be the result of some ancient genetic engineering. My problem is I can't buy off that all this occurred via a rogue planet that is in orbit around our own sun and that passes by every three-and-a-half millennias to 'help us along' the evolutionary path.

I have great respect for Sitchin as a researcher and expert in ancient manuscripts, and I found much in this book to ponder. However, he makes the mistake most ufologists do in taking ancient texts as literal historical documents about real people and events rather than as fictionalized epics of antiquity. While he does at points recognize the metaphorical nature of some of their writings, he takes the ancient Sumerians far too literally, and strikes me as a man espousing a theory in search of evidence. His theory is simply too fantastic to be taken seriously and, while he makes a far more sophisticated attempt at demonstrating his thesis than Von Daniken, he makes many of the same mistakes Chariots of the Gods makes. For example, he has the residents of this twelfth planet (actually, the tenth, for he counts the moon and the sun as planets as well) fly to earth in spacecraft and have the means to genetically alter early primates, but then they travel about by means of paddle boats and utilize 19th century extraction techniques to pull gold from mines in Africa. He also stresses that the Mesopotamian region was chosen by the ancient astronauts-in part-because of its vast petroleum reserves (implying the ancients were using fossil fuels) yet there is no discussion of things like cars or trains or other types of technology these fuels might have been used for (unless we are to assume they were to be used somehow in propelling their spacecraft. Imagine, gasoline/oil powered rocket ships; what will they think of next?) He also pulls a 'Von Daniken' by suggesting the ancients needed large expanses of flat ground to land their ships, giving one the impression of space shuttles and hyperjet transports, yet it would seem any technology sophisticated enough to maintain an interplanetary spacefaring capability should have figured out how to make space craft land and take off vertically (just as our own Apollo landers did on the moon.) In other words, their technology is inconsistent.

What's especially difficult to understand is why these beings don't seem to advance technologically themselves. Sitchin states they could only make the transit from their planet to our own when it swung into range every 3,600 years, but wouldn't any civilization have advanced considerably in such a vast amount of time? Consider how far we've come in just the last century; shouldn't these ancient peoples have developed an interstellar (or even intergalactic) capability over such a lengthy time? As such, there is much about these beings that appear inconsistent and inexplicable.

Finally, my biggest complaint with this book is the preposterous idea that a planet exists within our solar system that possesses such an elliptical orbit that it appears only once every 3,600 years and, more so, that this planet is teeming with beings similar enough to ourselves that they are capable of interbreeding with humans. First, if this is the case, why wasn't this planet reported during it's last pass through by ancient astrologers? Sitchin maintains this planet last made an appearance in 3,800 B.C. (just in time to get civilization kick started) yet if it has an orbit of 3,600 years, shouldn't it have shown up again around 200 B.C.? That's not all that long ago, historically speaking, and should have been quite a notable event (even if it's residents chose not to visit that time); one would assume someone-and astrology was a fairly well developed science back then-would have noted such a spectacular visitation from an unknown planet. Yet not a word exists in any ancient texts that even hint at such a remarkable event taking place. Curious.

The bigger problem, however, lies with the idea that such a planet could sustain human-like beings, despite being in complete darkness for 99% of the time. Even if it was massive enough to maintain it's own atmosphere and generated enough internal heat to prevent it from being a giant ball of ice in space, how does photosynthesis and, with it, the production of oxygen, take place? Clearly, for life to have evolved on such a planet conditions should be, at least to some degree, comparable to those on Earth. How anything more sophisticated than single cell organisms and fungus could exist on such a planet is scientifically inexplicable.

There are other problems with the book as well, but this should be enough to at least give the reader some idea of what they're getting into here. I appreciate Sitchin's scholarship and thoroughness (perhaps a little too thorough-the book is ponderous and a tedious read at times) but I can't say much for his science. An interesting book if you're into ancient civilizations and ufos and such (one might consider Sitchin the thinking man's Von Daniken) but nothing to be taken too seriously. In fact, it might have been better if Sitchin didn't take his own theory so deadly seriously; at least then he could have had some fun with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A provocative new theory of man's history
This is the first book in Sitchin's monumental Earth Chronicles series. It is important to remember that fact because there is necessarily a lot of introductory material to be presented here in order to lay the foundation for what is to come. In other words, most of the really interesting stuff comes later in the series--Ancient Egypt, MesoAmerica, etc. Parts of this first book are somewhat dry and hard to get through. As one gets into the latter half, though, some pretty amazing arguments are made. If you read this book and no other, you may well have a hard time even sanctioning the kinds of ideas Sitchen presents, let alone believing them. When you read the rest of the series, though, the arguments are threshed out much more thoroughly and should at least lend an idea of possiblity to objective readers.

The idea that "ancient astronauts" (a term I dislike) had a hand in Man's creation and evolution is not new. Sitchin goes far beyond the normal arguments, however. He argues that there is an undiscovered planet in our own solar system upon which life developed and evolved millions of years before life on earth, a planet that seeded earth with its earliest life forms millions of years ago when this undiscovered planet entered our solar system and essentially crashed into a large planet between Mars and Jupiter--the planet in question was broken up into two parts, one eventually forming Earth and the other the asteroid belt. The 12th planet (counting the sun and moon as planets) he calls Nibiru; it is a planet with an eccentric orbit carrying it well past the other nine planets thousands of years at a time. Here life developed and advanced at a very early period. Needing resources, particularly gold, the planet sent forth emissaries to earth. In order to free themselves of the hard labor of mining, these aliens, the Nefilim, created Man by combining their genes with those of the ape men then on earth, a procedure made possible by the fact that the two races were in fact genetic cousins. Thus, the Nefilim became early man's gods, and their stories were told in the artifacts of the ancient Sumerians and of the kingdoms that came after them.

Sitchin makes a determined effort to tie Christianity and the Bible to the tale he unfolds. He effectively, and with good evidence, shows that the early stories in the Bible are based largely on older manuscripts from Sumeria. He explains many of the mysterious passages in the Bible by tying the stories to more complete Sumerian tales--the Elohim, the plural Deity mentioned in the Creation story, the great flood, the Tower of Babel, and others. In this endeavor, he is very successful. While one may not be convinced of his story of life on Earth, one cannot doubt the fact that the early books of the Bible are basically a condensed version of former manuscripts. He makes a convincing argument for his theories, but one will not be and should not be convinced based on this one book. Much supporting evidence is to be found in the later books in the series, where a far richer version of man's history is presented by the author. As unbelievable as many of his ideas sound, Sitchin actually does an effective job of answering many of the big questions that scientists and theologians have been unable to answer about life on earth, the most important of which is an explanation of why home sapiens developed so suddenly and miraculously 300,000 years ago. Right or wrong, his ideas answer a lot of questions and deserve serious study. Sitchin's knowledge of ancient civilizations is immense, and his judgments cannot be dismissed without serious attention paid to them.

5-0 out of 5 stars An awesome theory, a greater controversy
I really enjoyed this book, as well as others in this series. Some of it got to be a bit of a tedious read, but I found it wholly interesting.
By far, this book explains ancient UFOs the most subjectively. Many say that the Sumerian texts should not be taken literally. I ask them, WHY NOT? Those texts are the first written history of mankind - why should they be classified as anything but just that. On a personal level, this book filled in some of the blanks that many modern ideologies and theologies left in my mind.
Whether you think this is all a bunch of hooey, or solid fact, or you fall somewhere in between the two - Sitchin's theories are undeniably powerful and intriuging.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great research and information!
I have been a fan of Sitchin for years and have read most of his books, but "The Twelfth Planet is my favorite of all. He lays it all out; from Bibical text, ancient Sumerian writings and obscure writings, to reveal that in ancient times UFOnauts from other worlds did indead visit and influence our ancient civilizations greatly.

Having read the TOP books in the UFO/Alien/ Government Cover-up Genre; "Unconventional Flying Objects" (NASA UFO Investigator for 30 years) by the scientist Dr. Paul Hill; my FAVORITE is "Alien Rapture" by Edgar Fouche (Top Secret Black Programs Insider) and Brad Steiger (Great fiction-soon to be a movie); "Alien Agenda" by the best selling author of 'Crossfire' Jim Marrs (Best reference on UFOlogy); and "The Day After Roswell," by Colonel Corso - I'd say this book is a MUST READ also!

Why would a respected, decorated, connected Military Officer (Corso) swear in a Court of Law that the UFO Conspiracy is real and that the facts and agenda in these books ARE TRUE? Why did NASA try to ban Dr. Paul Hill's book? Why were Fouche's home, car, and hotel rooms broken into? Why did he go underground after delivering his 'insider presentation to the International UFO Congress? Why has the great researcher and bestseller, Jim Marrs, been slandered? Why are there still questions about the deaths of Corso and Hill? Were their sudden demise a product of this conspiracy?

Why? If you read this excellent book and the others, you will know that they are indeed true. Two well-respected American Astronauts have come forward to proclaim they had seen evidence of the Roswell UFO crash and stated they know the cover-up is real. You be the judge. Read this book and check out the reviews of the other TOP books I have mentioned.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Reader
This is the most incredible book I have ever read. It started the process of completely and permanently changing my view of human origins and human history. In the 12th Planet, Zecharia Sitchin has presented an astoundingly strong case for ET intervention in the creation of the human race. This version positively rocks both evolutionism and biblical creation to their core! An astute reader will supplement this book with others by Sitchin, Graham Hancock and related authors. One should also investigate the current state of evolutionary "science". Having taken the time to read the material, I can only conclude that everything we know is wrong from both religious and mainstream academic sources. A "god" did create man in his own image, only he was a flesh and blood resident of our own solar system who looks just like us. Many people will be disturbed to find that humans are merely a genetically engineered hybrid race of primitive workers. I certainly was when I first realized it was true. However, the story of our origins is a fascinating and humbling one which I believe is required reading. Especially when you realize that our creators will be back. ... Read more

Book Description

Who are the ancient astronauts? Why did they first come to Earth? Why are they returning now? What part did they play in building the great monuments of antiquity? What part did they play in the formation of present and earlier civilizations? With what other beings do we share our universe? And where does the Earth fit into the cosmic scheme of things?

Almost twenty years of experimental work with telepathy led to the "breakthrough" contact recorded in this book. The Ra Material is an account not only of the events leading up to this contact, but of over 200 pages of verbatim transcripts of each and every conversation!, illustrated, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" ...

The Ra material is the transcription of the taped communications between researcher Don and the entity RA, a being that is talking through Carla, often referred to as the "instrument" throughout the book (s), in a state of deep trance. The transcriptions are carried out by Jim and the three are always present during all sessions, creating a triangulation of light that allows for RA, a sixth dimensional being, that calles itself a "socialmemory complex", to come through and speak.

RA has choosen this group because of the purity of their intent and makes himself available to them for questions about the Universe, the Creator, the dimensions, Karma, the law of One and any other material that might aid people in understanding universal truths that might be helpful for mankinds evolution.

The materail is very esoteric and requires some concentration. However, it is well worth the effort, as it is enlightening, very precise, accurate and informative. The explanations around the shift in dimensions we are about to undergo on the planet, that Ra defines as the harvest, are devoid of hype and sensation. Harvest is a process that all beings and planetary bodies eventually encur, following physical/spiritual law just as eclipses do or the seasons.The science of the harvest ( ascension) is explained in depth here as is the chakra system and it's role in Soul evolution.

Also extremely interesting the explanation of the polarization of entities into Service to Self orintated entities and Service to Others orientated entities and the implications these have in the ascension process and the roles they play within the bigger picture.

A really deep read and well worth the effort. I have read all four volumes and I am about to tackle vol 5. I thoroughly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ra Material & Law of One books
This "contact" is the only example of so-called channeled material to which I would give an unqualified endorsement -- if by "channeled" one refers to communication with another entity, not one's own subconscious or superconscious, nor "angelic" or hierarchical sources, while in trance.

Guaranteed to interest students of forteana, metaphysics, and matters of the spirit... But, to those of you on the straight and narrow spiritual path, a cautionary note is advised whenever the possibility arises of engaging in "spiritual gossip" that may accompany the "true teachings". And said Goethe: "Thought widens, but paralyzes; whereas action enlivens, but narrows."

Hope I haven't confused you too much with this electronic "contact". Happy distorting.

The history of psychic channelling and channelled material has a long and checkered past. In the last century, at least in the West, the seriousness and quality of such work has been generally dismissed as something between a quaint parlor trick and delusional doomsday prophesying. In a broader historical context, however, channeling has been accepted for 1000's of years as a genuine means of acquiring valid and useful information. Consider that much of the Bible, as the divinely inspired Word of God, easily qualifies as channelled material. It is from this latter context that I view the RA Material. From an intuitive standpoint the information contained within this first book, as well as, the remaining four other books rings true. The channelled entity RA claims to be a higher dimensional being of collective intelligence with karmic connections to Earth and it's ensouled inhabitants. Essentially, the message is as follows: Long ago, Earth was selected by benevolent higher dimensional beings as a planet for the seeding of Life in all its myriad forms including humankind. These beings are members of an "intergalactic federation" of sorts comprised of various advanced intelligences with representatives from assorted civilizations throughout the universe. There "mission" is to oversee and nurture the development and evolution of other less advanced civilizations while not interfering with planetary affairs or indvidual lives to the point of violating Free Will. One realizes that at some point, the distictions between angels and highly developed extra-dimensional alien beings who watch over us with concern and care are rougly one and the same. Throughout history, they have periodically attempted to gently steer us away from the darkness of possible destruction and towards the light of soul development or evolution by offering wisdom and understanding through various means ranging from inspiration in dreams to direct physical contact. Their message is The Law Of One which states that the Creator is real, that the universe and everything in it is His creation, and that Love is not only also real but a powerful energetic force of Creation. We are all souls having a "human experience" over many physical incarnations for the purpose of learning truths which will allow us to move on to the next level of development in an endless jouney to become one with the Creator again. This is but a brief synopsis and doesn't do justice to the remarkable amount of information and specific detail contained in the five books. The books were written in the early 1980's, and the fact that a great many of RA's statements have come to pass in the last twenty years lends credence to the overall quality of the work and channelling in general. In my experience, this material is the best of it's kind, easily ranking with the Jane Roberts' Seth books. Read the RA Material and enjoy the feeling of wonder again and again.

5-0 out of 5 stars fascinating, undeniable links to the puzzle of existance
The material of this book has become a keystone in the puzzle of human history for me. Other books that tie in in theme and content are Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsh and The Third Eye and Cave of the Ancients by Tuesday Lobsang Rampa. Ra Material is very "thick" but rewarding reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars the most clear metaphysical philosophy that I have found
This is the first from a series of five books called THE LAW OF ONE. It describes channeling sessions conducted by the authors who were looking for material that would aid in the spiritual evolution of humankind. Wide range of metaphysical subjects are covered, from ancient Egypt to chakras to the evolution of this universe. The entity providing the information calls itself "RA, a humble messenger of the Law of One". ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Provocative, to say the least...
I've read all of the Sitchin Earth Chronicles titles plus this one. Conclusion? Whatever one's opinion of the "ancient astronaut" craze, Sitchin is certainly above average in scholarship. His work makes for fascinating reading, and although I have serious reservations about his conclusions(we still have no compelling evidence that extraterrestrials have ever visited this planet or that man's evolution was "tinkered with" by aliens), I do enjoy his style. I recommend Sitchin to the curious who have a strong background in science and history.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best scientific book i have ever read
I first heard about this book on a video that i watched. There was in interview with Sitchin and i got the book from my local library. As a bit of a sceptic, with no religious up-brining, i found Sitchin to be true to the point, in everything he wrote, compared with the minimal amount i learned. The study of the Mesopotamian & Sumerian texts,has lead me to believe that someone watches over. Since reading Genesis:Reveisited numerous times, i have begun to ask questions, like a lot of other people. Now i just need to find the asnwers. Sitchin has instilled a belief in me that was never there before. His ability to interpret & comprehend what some see as myth, is proved in history. Particularly interesting was the parts on 'Nebiru', the planet beyond our solar system. What i would like to know is...Where did it REALLY all begin? By K.Stein

4-0 out of 5 stars Good.
Here is something you don't see every day, a Christian who beleives in alien life, UFO's, Conspiracy throries and the possibility that maybe we've misinterpreted the Bible all these years! I do beleive in God and I do beleive in Jesus, but Mr. Sitchins works are simply too hard to ignore. it IS a fact the creation account of Genesis, the Flood account and the tower of Babel and other accounts in Genesis are downsized versions (abridged) of their ancenstors accounts from Meopotamia. It's foolish to assume that all of the ancient myths are just sroies for fantasy and not early mans attempt at jouranalistic reporting. Sitchin also proves what Chritians have been saying for years, THERE IS SCIENCE IN THE BIBLE!!!!!!!! While the very validity of evolution is coming into question by an alarmingly growing number of scientists nowadays (most of whome have no religious loyalties by the way) portions of Sitchins works may be discredited, but it is still a worthwhile read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Skyrockets in the night
a work that delighfully pries open rigid brain cells, stimulates them to expand marvelous new synapses and leaves the reader brimming with revolutionary ideas.

Unusual, unique, elegantly researched but hope-filled theorized notions that will rock your world. Sitchin takes you into the outer limits and you become the better for it.

Very entertaining reading.

Very low level of intelligence? Pity? Just because something is unknown does not mean it is impossible. People who first said the Earth was not flat were ridiculed. Do your own research. Do not stop with Sitchin, read others (Drunvalo Melchizedek, Doreal). Keep an open mind. Or, play it safe and follow mainstream - ignorance after all IS bliss! ... Read more

Book Description

Since earliest times, humanity has pondered the incomprehensible mysteries of the universe, life...and the afterlife. Was there somewhere on Earth where, after death, mortal man could join the immortal Gods? Where was this place? By whom was it established? And does it still exist today?

After years of painstaking research -- combining recent archaeological discoveries with ancient texts and artifacts -- noted scholar Zecharia Sitchin has identified the legendary Land of the Gods...and provided astounding new revelations about the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, and other mysterious monuments whose true meanings and purposes have been lost for eons.

5-0 out of 5 stars An interesting rewrite of history
How did an ancient civilization move quarried stones in the mountains of Lebanon that weighed in excess of 2 million pounds each? Who really built the Great Pyramids of Giza, and when? Why are ancient Sumerian cities arranges in precise geometric positions? What did the quests of Giglamesh and Alexander the Great really find? This book attempts to shed true light on many of these historical misconceptions. This book has been exhaustively researched, translated from the ancient texts by Sitchin himself, and it shows in Sitchin's writing. He is a brilliant historain of ancient Sumeria, Mesopotamia, and Egypt. It is rather hard to keep all of the names straight in this book, because he covers so much ground. It might take me a second third read before I can fully digest the book. But it is worth the effort because the implications are so profound. At times his writing style is a bit dry. This is a recommended read for people of scientific mind who would like to shed the lies that they may have been force fed in todays closed-minded institutions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Man's search for the immortality of the gods
In this second entry in the Earth Chronicles series, Sitchin focuses on man's eternal and perpetual search for immortality and ties his findings in with his theories of ancient Sumer and the Annunaki who originally colonized earth. In particular, he discusses Alexander the Great's desperate search for a way to escape an early death as well as Gilgamesh's epic search for everlasting life; more importantly, he provides a map of their quests, identifying their most important destinations with the ancient Sumerian sites he wrote about in The 12th Planet. Basically, the ultimate destinations of the men of legend corresponded to the areas from which the Annunaki journeyed back and forth between earth, their orbiting spacecraft, and their home planet. Having described an intricate grid system accounting for the specific locations of the ancient cities both before and after the Deluge, he makes some fascinating arguments. I was most struck by his conclusion that the new, post-Deluge space port was actually Jerusalem. As always, Sitchin incorporates Biblical texts into his story, revealing compelling connections between the books of the Bible and the ancient records of the earliest Middle Eastern cultures.

I found myself plodding to some degree through the first half of the book, even laying the book aside for a few days, but the latter sections here are quite interesting because they focus on ancient Egypt. Sitchin's discussions of the ancient Egyptian monuments, particularly the Great Pyramids at Giza are enlightening and fascinating. He forcibly argues that the pyramids were never meant to serve as burial places of ancient Egyptians and that the Great Pyramids and the majestic Sphinx were built long before Khufu, Chefren, and other pharaohs of the 4th Dynasty came to power. Egyptologists dispute this conclusion, of course, but the evidence as presented by Sitchin and other scholars is quite strong on this point. Sitchin lays waste to the only real evidence we have that Khufu built the Great Pyramid. The masons' markings found in the chambers above the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid purportedly show that Khufu was the builder, but Sitchin puts forth a very convincing argument that those marks were forged (and rather unconvincingly in fact) by an unscrupulous pseudo-archaeologist.

I try to read these books with an open mind. I can't say if Sitchin is correct or not in his theories, but I can say that he breathes life into an ancient world I would otherwise know very little about, and he tells a fascinating story in a very engaging manner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not such a stretch if you Think!
Mr. Sitchin has nothing to gain by espousing pseudoscience or pseudohistory. He would only stand to lose. Ancient History as a discipline has been proclaimed true to a great extent by proclamation that the "ancients"told us all. This is all well and good as a baseline. I have no quarrel with Herodotus or Tacitus.
Read the bibliographies in this series. These ARE NOT the idle ramblings of a 'crank". If you truly pay attention, you will see the obvious scholarly work that has been done. Only the intellectually insecure will be intimidated and resort to common mockery.

If nothing else, this should send you into deeper studies of the ancient Near East. You won't be sorry. This is thought provoking at the very least and definitely entertaining to the casual reader and the more imaginative history buffs.

Look at and think about civilization, pre-Egyptian, pre-Indus Valley(?) and you will learn quite a bit. Better yet, you will be driven to learn more by yourself!

Book Description

This book follows the journey of a 17-year-old named Adam who has the ability to connect to and influence another person's health at a distance. His gift of distant healing is very unique as he describes his experiences for all of us to understand and explore.

The academic theories of quantum physics come to life with his first hand accounts of this interconnectedness we all share. Adam has the ability to perceive this connectivity and influence it over any distance instantaneously, or distant healing. The scientific basis of this is explained in its most simplistic form in terms of "quantum physics" and "quantum holograms".

DreamHealer provides an inspirational understanding of our own awareness as we seek to achieve a higher level of consciousness. Adam provides us with a number of intuitive health insights that anyone can use to assist themselves in self-healing, and self-empowerment. It is a straight forward, yet profound account of how Adam's journey ultimately affects us all. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Read book before you comment
Several of the "book reviews" diverge into personal criticism when you do not even know us.
As for some book reviews, some state inaccuracies that make it obvious that you haven't even read "Dreamhealer".
For the benefit of those who are truly interested, this book is about our interconnectedness in life so, my friends, read it before you comment.
We know that this book has helped many people, and perhaps even you might be one of them!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Adam's book is the real thing based on spiritual principles
Adam's book is written for the healer. It is written on a level of maturity and a basic understanding of spiritual principles of healing. He has confirmed in his abilities, what it has taken me many years to understand about my own ability to heal and the images I have seen. I have read two extremely negative criticisms of the book and found them to be filled with such hate and jealousy that I have completely invalidated their critique value. Anyone who claims to be a healer and then spews such ugly anger towards a young talented author cannot possibly be a healer because true healers understand the karmic effects of such negative energy and that all healing and the ability to heal comes from God, or "the Universe" as some say. It is true that Adam may not have been able to heal his own mother completely, yet in the scriptures we read that Paul was able to heal thousands, but not able to heal himself completely. In response to his pleas, the Lord said, "My grace is sufficient for thee,". Sometimes we are given challenges close to the heart to strengthen our resolve. Adam doesn't make fantastic claims in his book as a healer. In fact, his book is fresh, clear, and has a balanced perspective. He takes the successes he's had and reveals that a positive attitude, an ability to be receptive and a desire for deep personal change are what those being healed must have in order to heal. As a Master in martial arts, a certified metaphysical healing practitioner, a reiki healer, and a healer educated in Dhanur Veda under an Indian Master for nine years, and a student of oriental medicine and herbology, I do validate the principles and content of this wonderful book. As healers, we are in a continual evolution to grow and learn. I have healed others and have been seeing astral images (which Adam calls holograms) for years in my healing. The fact that Adam uses high-tech and scientific terms is a matter of symantics. What I call the astral body and physical substrait, Adam refers to as holograms. What I call the Divine power of God and Jesus, he calls Energetic field. He avoids any religious or cultural terms in order for us to understand from his scientific and modern perspective. His book is filled with his love for his craft and his growth and evolution unfolds as he takes us through the challenges he's endured as a healer. I highly recommend this book to any serious healer with an open mind and a willingness to learn and grow.

1-0 out of 5 stars Another Fake... With a New Twist
Adam, if that's his real name is supposed to be around 17 years old and wants privacy, but conducts interviews and has workshops. He now no longer meets people in person, but has the client send a color photo and "money" along with a signed iron clad disclaimer which is good for life! The "healing" is done from a distance (nonlocal), and sounds like a retake of Edgar Cayce except with a scientific (theory) explaination of what is taking place and how it is done.

A paper was done on Quantum Hologram by Edgar Mitchell and Adam and his parents (if they are his parents) use this word to expain how Adam heals through perception, telepathy, and intuition. The Quantum Theory talk reminds me of Transendental Meditation and of Deepak Chopra's theories on healing through quantum physics. At the end of Mitchell's paper he states, "The existence of quantum holography provides an adequate informational structure to permit a theory for the observed results. The case is a classic case in phenomenology, where results are repeatedly observed over time that fall outside the prevailing paradigm, and must await new developments in science before an explanation is forthcoming." He goes on to say, "These results apply directly to healing prayer as well." He concludes, "The case for mind/mind and mind/matter interactions is impressively well documented over many decades as studies in phenomenology, with staggering probabilities against chance having produced the results."

However, with all of this being said we still don't know if "Adam" fits into these finding since there is no proof that he has actually healed anyone. His disclaimer gives him the credit if there is a healing at anytime, but also gives Adam an out if there is no healing. But, there is no refund as well! I find it interesting that Adam and his parents also sought out Ronnie Hawkins (an older Rock musican) for a healing. Hawkins went through the WHIPPLE Operation for his pancreatic tumor, and used shaman remedies, "pot" and many other methods in addition to Adam's healing. Adam takes credit for Hawkin's recovery, but Hawkin's doesn't give Adam that honor. Many other interventions could have done the job for Ronnie. Hawkin's gives credit to his doctors as well, but especially gives credit to the "Big Rocker up there."

My conclusion is that much of what Adam has to share in his book is recycled info with a scientific, quantum hologram, perception, telepathy, nonlocal, intuition type spin. I think that Adam and his parents could be "Irish Travelers" (crooks) who simply have a new twist in scamming people. There is no history, no information, and a guise to remain private in order to lead a "normal" life for the kid... if he is even a kid of seventeen! Why did they have an interview, do workshops, and seek out Hawkins if they want privacy, unless, it is to build a large client base and are establishing non-interference and a no questions asked air of legitimacy.

Another question that comes to mind is how does KARMA fit into this energy healing or whatever term we call it? Isn't Adam taking on karma? To what degree should we interfer with the Divine Plan? Or, is learning how to heal ourselves part of our journey towards Self-Mastery? Jesus, it is said, did healings (of course these people eventually died... right?), and was reported to say that all of us could do this and more! Perhaps Adam is a fake because people fear death, but even if he is a fraud maybe it is also a spiritual wake-up call for us to become our own Masters and our own Healers. I am very wary of those whose vainly share with the world that they are great souls. If you have to announce it... then you aren't.

I suggest that people use discrimination and check these people (Adam) out more. In looking at all sides of this "Adam" with limited infomation on his part and the disclaimer he has people sign and the non-contact aspect it sounds like an ingenious scam! Also, isn't this book listed as Science Fiction?

5-0 out of 5 stars will change consciousness, for the absolute best!
DreamHealer was recommended to me several months ago. Now that I see this book is available through, I am very pleased.

Dream Healer will do several things to a reader's consciousness:

1)Will allow Adam's incredible life story to resonate into the reader's being, and will offer details about extraordinary abilities such as holographic viewing and healing.
2)Will bring important insight regarding how healing works, how Energy is accessed, and how the reader may develop his/her own personal power.
3)Will open the reader's focus into a new perception, and will raise awareness to the realization that we have very much to learn and discover in this universe.

I recommend DreamHealer to every person I contact that shares an interest in healing, Energy, and quantum physics.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Truth Is Right Here With Dr. Greer
I have been searching for the real truth about UFO and ET since my childhood (1970~), so far what I found was a mess and confusion; bad ET, good ET, alien invasion, abduction, mutilation, science fiction movies, etc... you know the rest.

I spent about one year to finish reading this book, finally all my confusions were gone, my mind was cleared, this book set straight all the mess manufactured by current UFO sub culture all over the world, this is the book that should be read by all the people of the world because it shows us all the solid and credible proof about UFO and ET.

Dr. Greer, he is our only hope at the moment to reveal to the world the truth about UFO, ET and their zero point energy generation technology, he is our only hope for mankind's First Contact in a peaceful manner, he should be our earth ambassador to the universe, he needs all the support he can get from the people of the earth, let us all help him to save this earth from our own destruction.

1-0 out of 5 stars This isn't even good science fiction
Occasionally, I like to get off the beaten path of my usual scientific reading and see what is happening in the arena of UFO research, which I believe is a phenomenon that is still open to question. I had understood that Steven Greer was at the forefront of this reasearch, so I was eager to pick up a copy of his book.
What I discovered however, was a wordy, unsubstantiated series of premisis couched in a sea of pseudo-scientific jardon. Greer, should probably have stayed with his original profession as an M.D. and not have attempted to delve into the realm of physics, which it is clear he has no understanding.
Here is a typical example of some of the slurry he writes, apparently to make us think he either has a direct line to the aliens, or an omnipotent God and therefore needs no proof:
"absolute, undifferentiated mind, together with the causal idea/sound/thought form and the CIV or astral form create a matrix which supports or gives rise to the so-called material universe. The blue-print, if you will, or ideas/thought/sound and subtle CIV form actually supports and helps create the more gross or expressed material universe. But the material universe has with it the unitive,[?] indivisible absolute mind, as well as the causal and CIV apects...It is incorrect to regard, therefore, these aspects as purely distant 'other dimensions' since the warp and woof of the material cosmos is conscious, thought form based and has astral or CIV matrix with it."
Greer maintains that such things as astral projection, levitation, and telekinesis are proven facts of science and not merely anecdotal, however, I haven't seen this sort of proof cited in any scientific publications.
Let's hope that these alien beings that have mastered faster-than-light travel, intra-dimensional travel, and consciousness communication, don't still believe in the old religious dogma that Greer constantly evokes thoughout the book. I'd like to think that these beings have at least shed the superstitions that are on the verge of destroying our society and world. Anyone want to buy a book cheap?
Review by D.K. author of: Quantum Reality: A New Philosophical Perspective.

4-0 out of 5 stars Keep up the good work!
I first read his second book Disclosure and it was awesome!!! The first half of this book was new agey at times but still very interesting. The second half of this book is when it starts getting good. U.F.O buffs will love Greer's books. Greer is getting closer to the truth about extratrrestrials, government cover ups, black operations and much more. Greer's books are must reads.

5-0 out of 5 stars Toward a resolution
Dr. Greer brings to an exposition of UFO secrecy the pragmatic approach of an emmergency care physician with the no-nonsense approach of a methodical professional interested in results. He is not as much interested in giving the reader a thorough debriefing on UFO's secrecy as he wants it to stop. His must-read book proposes the best route to a resolution of the UFO dilema. Secrecy about UFOs has acquired over decades a perpetuate life that even the President or a CIA Director cannot tame. Obviously Dr. Greer benefited in writing his superbly documented book from the support of powerful friends in the CIA, the Pentagone and Congress. The challenge is for Dr. Greer to insure the conspirators in the extensive cover-up of Roswell that they would not suffer at the hands of a citizenry learning the enormity of the big lie. Needless to say that the jaded beneficiaries of this crime against humanity are not eager to see it happen. Unless we all become engaged in exposing the fraud, planet earth will continue its steady decline toward self-destruction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Most Gigantic Opportunity in Our History
Dr. Greer's book is super packed with facts about the presence of "others". The basic premise is toward action, WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING NOW.

Stated simply we, as earth inhabitants are on the verge of becoming visitors to other planets and the stars. It's essential to approach these "others" in a peaceful, cooperative manner. He is proposing some basic ways of doing that. He is also encouraging society to put their best heads together and approach this contact "the greatest of all opportunities" peacefully with openness, friendliness and cooperation...a new type of diplomacy! There is the idea that our government is withholding information, and there are those who are ordering and using guns to attack these "visitors" under the misguided approach that they are here to harm us... or that the American public cannot "handle it".

On a common sense level, if these alien visitors are here to harm us, just the fact that they are here shows their advanced technical capabilities. They could wipe us all out in a nanosecond if they wanted to. But that has not happened.

It is much more sensible to approach these visitors peacefully and openly. What an adventure...and in our lifetime! Imagine how much we can learn from them...boggles my mind. This is the most gigantic opportunity in our history.

Let's turn on our enthusiasm and creativity for a major face to face peaceful meeting to enhance all of our lives. And let's have it covered on we can all share in the excitement. ... Read more

Book Description

Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance--the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth had been visited by aliens.This world-famous bestseller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eyes of the Sphinx. But here is where it all began--von Daniken's startling theories of our earliest encounters with alien worlds, based upon his lifelong studies of ancient ruins, lost cities, potential spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Daniken's theory that we ourselves are the descendants of these galactic pioneers--and the archeological discoveries that prove it...* An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid
* Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts
* Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins
* A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica
* A giant spaceport discovered in the Andes
Includes remarkable photos that document mankind's first contact with aliens at the dawn of civilization.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book shouldn't be ridiculed.
First of all, it's not science-fiction. Just because mr. Daniken's interpretations are different from the typical archeologist community, it doesn't mean they're bad. He is not preaching anything, just stating his theories based on facts. Yes, facts. He did make some mistakes, but he was perfectly able to correct them in other books later on. And his hypothesis didn't come out of thin air; the mythological "coincidences" he stated are worthy of mention and study, and he did travel all around the world to explore the sites. He did meet several people to interview, etc. This book hooked me to the mysteries of ancient history, and then I discovered other brilliant authors like Charles Berlitz, Robert Charroux and Graham Hancock. And no, mr. Daniken doesn't think a trivial thing is evidence of extraterrestrial visits; the hints he shows are more than interesting, and it's about time someone criticizes and rebutes traditional history. And I read that book for the first time at age 13 (I'm now 16), it opened my eyes to new concepts, it made me start asking more questions, and rebutting some major problems and contradictions of our history as told in classes. Why were we never told in school that Glozel's site existed (cf. Robert Charroux's Mysterious Unknown Book), which contradicts our modern thinking of when writing appeared? Why were we never told about Nazca's plains? Many people seemed to misunderstand Mr. Daniken's interpretation: he doesn't think the *drawings* are the landing sites, the large fields next to it are. Many said the idea of the drawings in the sand as landing strips was ludicrous; indeed it is, Mr. Daniken said they were SIGNS to these landing sites, just to clear out the confusion. Well, this is getting long, so I'll finish by saying this book is worthy of recognition.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but horribly wrong
Von Däniken claims that the myths, arts, social organizations, etc., of ancient cultures were introduced by astronauts from another world. He questions not just the capacity for memory, but the capacity for culture and civilization itself, in ancient peoples. Prehistoric humans did not develop their own arts and technologies, but rather were taught art and science by visitors from outer space.

Where is the proof for von Däniken's claims? Some of it was fraudulent. For example, he produced photographs of pottery that he claimed had been found in an archaeological dig. The pottery depicts flying saucers and was said to have been dated from Biblical times. However, investigators from Nova (the fine public-television science program) found the potter who had made the allegedly ancient pots. They confronted von Däniken with evidence of his fraud. His reply was that his deception was justified because some people would only believe if they saw proof ("The Case of the Ancient Astronauts," first aired 3/8/78, done in conjunction with BBC's Horizon and Peter Spry-Leverton)!

However, most of von Däniken's evidence is in the form of specious and fallacious arguments. His data consists mainly of archaeological sites and ancient myths. He begins with the ancient astronaut assumption and then forces all data to fit the idea. For example, in Nazca, Peru, he explains giant animal drawings in the desert as an ancient alien airport. The fact that the lines of the drawing would be useless as a runway for any real aircraft because of their narrowness is conveniently ignored by von Däniken. The likelihood that these drawings related to the natives' science or mythology is not considered. He also frequently reverts to false dilemma reasoning of the following type: "Either this data is to be explained by assuming these primitive idiots did this themselves or we must accept the more plausible notion that they got help from extremely advanced peoples who must have come from other planets where such technologies as anti-gravity devices had been invented." His devotion to this theory has not dwindled, despite contrary evidence, as is evidenced by still another book on the subject, Arrival of the Gods : Revealing the Alien Landing Sites at Nazca (1998).

There have been many critics of von Däniken's notions, but Ronald Story stands out as the most thorough. Most critics of von Däniken's theory point out that prehistoric peoples were not the helpless, incompetent, forgetful savages he makes them out to be. (They must have at least been intelligent enough to understand the language and teachings of their celestial instructors--no small feat!) It is true that we still do not know how the ancients accomplished some of their more astounding physical and technological feats. We still wonder how the ancient Egyptians raised giant obelisks in the desert and how stone age men and women moved huge cut stones and placed them in position in dolmens and passage graves. We are amazed by the giant carved heads on Easter Island and wonder why they were done, who did them, and why they abandoned the place. We may someday have the answers to our questions, but they are most likely to come from scientific investigation not pseudoscientific speculation. For example, observing contemporary stone age peoples in Papua New Guinea, where huge stones are still found on top of tombs, has taught us how the ancients may have accomplished the same thing with little more than ropes of organic material, wooden levers and shovels, a little ingenuity and a good deal of human strength.

We have no reason to believe our ancient ancestors' memories were so much worse than our own that they could not remember these alien visitations well enough to preserve an accurate account of them. There is little evidence to support the notion that ancient myths and religious stories are the distorted and imperfect recollection of ancient astronauts recorded by ancient priests. The evidence to the contrary--that prehistoric or 'primitive' peoples were (and are) quite intelligent and resourceful--is overwhelming.

Of course, it is possible that visitors from outer space did land on earth a few thousand years ago and communicate with our ancestors. But it seems more likely that prehistoric peoples themselves were responsible for their own art, technology and culture. Why concoct such an explanation as von Däniken's? To do so may increase the mystery and romance of one's theory, but it also makes it less reasonable, especially when one's theory seems inconsistent with what we already know about the world. The ancient astronaut hypothesis is unnecessary. Occam's razor should be applied and the hypothesis rejected.

4-0 out of 5 stars Planet Earth's Forbidden History
I am an avid reader into the paranormal and I recently read Chariots of the Gods? by Erich Von Daniken. I am absolutely taken back by the theories that are presented by Mr. Daniken. Chariots of the Gods left me questioning the validity of our ancient past on earth.

Did space travelers really land on Earth in the past? Were the chariots spoken of in the Bible really space crafts? Are the Nazca lines really a landing port for visitors from outer space? There are just so many questions that need answering. Erich Von Daniken is on the right track with his book. Maybe we all need to start a new movement to search for the REAL answers that humanity needs to know. Thank you Mr. Daniken for the wonderful book.

1-0 out of 5 stars An insult to humanity.
Although a fun read, the basic logic of this book is that our ancestors were primatives who were incapable of achieving the kinds of accomplishments that exist, and therefore, the wonders of ancient civilizations must have been created with alien knowledge!

People 3,000 years ago were every bit as smart as we are, and had generations to study, to learn, and to build. Were there alien encounters? Maybe, but the facts presented in this book do nothing to make that case.

This book should be read with a critical eye. The archaeological experts may not always be right, but they are more open minded than Mr. Von Daniken in their search for answers and explanations.

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely Interesting
Although they seem a little far fetched, especially in this consumerist world where one will only believe that which is placed in front of him as "proof", I highly enjoy reading Erich Von Daniken's theories relating to the possible origins of human civilization. I mean think about it for a minute, what if the theories were in fact, true? Would you then believe?

Von Daniken's first book "Chariots of the Gods?" fascinated me when I read it in high school, not because of his writing style (which he really should have worked on), but rather the fact that it was putting out new ideas which were completely "taboo" at the time. Yes, the UFO craze was in full force with everyone, and their mother writing about "visitors" from "spaceships" doing everything from experimenting on humans to impregnating females, but this was the first time that someone created a theory that human civilization could have indeed been founded by these ancient "gods" in their "flying machines".

I'm not saying that any of it is true (nor his other works), but I get him credit for creating a theory that would go on to influence everyone from Graham Hancock to Robert Temple. Pick this up, and read with an open mind. ... Read more

Book Description

Thousands Of Years Before the Birth
Of Christ, Giants Roamed The Earth

In the sixteenth century, Spanish conquerors came to the New World in search of El Dorado, the fabled city of gold. Instead, they encountered inexplicable phenomena that have puzzled scholars and historians ever since: massive stone edifices constructed in the Earth's most inaccessible regions ... great monuments forged with impossible skill and unknown tools ... intricate carvings describing the events and topography of half a world away.

In this, the remarkable and thoroughly researched fourth volume of THE EARTH CHRONICLES, author Zecharia Sitchin uncovers the long-hidden secrets of the lost civilizations of the pre-Columbian Americas and offers documentation of the giant gods who spawned the greatness of the Incans, Mayans, and Aztecs -- the Anunnaki -- "those who from Heaven to Earth came."

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book to take to Cancun!
This is a great book to take with you if you are going to vacation in Cancun. It's a quick read and then you can go off to Tulum or see the great pyramid or any of the 80 or so sites and judge for yourself. Even if you only accept the dates of 800 years ago, stand there and tell yourself that people built these cities bare handed without the use of any technology!

If there is a down side to these books (12th Planet et al) it is that the points tend to be made over and over. You can either accept what is said with an open mind or not. Even if the assertions are not true they're fun to read. It often reminds me of episodes of the old Dr. Who program (remember the Cyber Men?)

I have always enjoyed reading these books and then checking out the evidence for myself. The pictoglyphs of the pre-native americans are very interesting as well. Maybe we'll all live to see the answer.....

4-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but Unconvincing
I love all Sitchin's books but I am very cautious about his theories, since he's made very unscientific claims about languages before and he is suspiciously quiet about the later history of his postulated "12th" planet Nibiru that supposedly caused the end of the last ice age and is supposed to come close to the earth every 3600 years. According to his chronology, Nibiru should have passed the earth in 100BC, but there is no historical record of any such thing, nor is there evidence of geological upheavals at that time. None of the info in this book is origibal either, I have seen it all before in the work of Robert Bauva, Erich von Daniken and many others. But still an entertaining read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Takes the New out of New World
The Lost Realms is one of the most speculative and interesting books in Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series. The ruins and structures of Egypt and the Near East have been wondered at and studied for centuries, and there is a veritable wealth of information from Near Eastern papyri, stelae, monuments, and similar artifacts. The ruins of Mesoamerica have largely been rediscovered only in the past couple of hundred years; indeed, unknown wonders surely remain hidden by South America's dense jungles. The immensely important records and artifacts of New World societies such as the Mayan, Inca, and Aztec civilizations were for the most part lost and destroyed at the hands of greedy Spanish conquistadors, and further site degradation has resulted from the pilfering of ancient stones by recent natives of the area for use in the construction of their own buildings. Thus, the earliest history of the lower Americas remains frustratingly impossible to understand. We are left with giant edifices with significant similarities to Near Eastern constructions in size, orientation, and purpose, many of them seemingly containing very advanced structures built for unknown purposes. Even the age of the artifacts is hotly debated, with many scientists refusing to believe scientific findings point back to as early as 2000 B.C.

Sitchin's arguments fit very nicely with the history of Sumeria, Egypt, and the Near East that he laid out in his earlier books. Basically, he argues that the Americas were exploited by the gods for the production of gold and other metals such as tin, which the Andean mountains in particular hold in abundance. Metals were refined here and shipped back to the Near Eastern lands long before Columbus ever sailed the ocean blue. Sitchin believes that the Olmecs, of which very little is known besides what has been gleaned from the artifacts they left behind, particularly in the form of large stone blocks representing men of obvious African descent, did indeed come from Africa very early on--in fact, it was the Egyptian god Thoth who brought his followers here when he was displaced by Marduk. While the Olmecs mysteriously disappeared, other societies were formed by white gods and giants from across the sea. The traditions of the diverse Indian groups all shared a common mythology, including the story of a Great Flood; they also possessed amazing arts, technologies, and sciences (particularly astronomy) very similar to those of Sumeria and Egypt. The inadequacy of artifacts in the Americas necessarily hinder any scientist studying their earliest histories, but Sitchin constructs a remarkably compelling timeline in which the story of Mesoamerica fits very neatly into the history he has gleaned of the Annunaki and their relationships with mankind in its earliest days.

Even if Sitchin were dead wrong on everything he suggests, this book would still be worth reading just for the information about the amazing ancient cities and monuments built in the lower Americas that are only now emerging from their jungle tombs. The Olmecs, Toltecs, Mayans, Incas, and Aztecs are more mysterious than the Near Eastern cultures, and the suggestion that men traveled from the Old World and Africa centuries before Columbus is as compelling as it is fascinating. The illustrations in this book are sometimes rather grainy and hard to examine closely, but the images they convey, such as that of the giant stone heads left by the Olmecs, do much to enhance Sitchin's theories. This is thought-provoking, educational, stimulating material.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Lost Realms
There are many pieces of the puzzle of our existence in the universe that I had figured out, or "seen", but there were still dots that I could not connect, gaps I could not fill in. When I read this book it was like deja vu, a recollection of things stored in our genetic memory/code long forgotten through evolution, now recalled causing gasps of recollection. This book logically and scientifically filled in the gaps. It makes sense, it all fits. Sitchin's bibliography to support his research is tremendously extensive and impressive. I recommend it highly for the searching mind, and have given copies as gifts to many friends and associates.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best Sitchin book so far.
Although I have difficulty with some of the pat answers Mr. Sitchin gives in this book, I think that it has the most solid scholarship I've seen in any of his writings to date. I would also recomend Micheal Cremo's "Forbiden Archeolgoy." ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, the answers!
This book is the one I've been looking for after four years of abduction research. It has answered so many questions that I was unable to find in most books that focus on the physical and emotional aspects of abduction. This book explains the genetic link, the energy at work, and the complex motives of the different ETs who are working with humans at this time. This book rings true to me and I've read many books on this subject as I am an abductee/breeder and most interested in getting to the bottom of this. If you want more information to correlate with David Icke's theories, this book is for you, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent presentation of contact with benevolent species.
Anna Hayes is yet another contactee sharing ET knowledge, agenda and connectedness with a human life form. There are many "ET" visitors who are working with individuals to open humanity to understand its role in the intergalactic commmunity. While Anna's experiences and presentation come from just one of many species contacting humans, she is right on target with the general information and the specifics of the species she is dealing with. She is articulate and presents the material with great professional skills. It is informative, delightful, entertaining and I highly recommend it.

Remembering to read other contact material as well..."Extraterretrial Contact" by Dr. Steven M. Greer is also highly recommended in your search for information on the "awakening" knowledge of our intergalactic connectedness and the contacts that have been made and the history of humanity. His research with military, government and civilian sightings and contacts is at last "the smoking gun" so many have been looking for. In light with the same "proof positive" is Zachary Sitchin's books which bring proof of humanity's origins. It is time humanity awakened to not only its origins, but the why and where of the purpose of creation. Anna Hayes, Steven Greer and Sitchin are among a vanguard of articulate individuals assisting in the awakening humanity. -Lori Cordini/Watana (another contactee)

3-0 out of 5 stars Mass of confusing esoteric information & history
Ashayana Deane, previously writing under the name Anna Hayes and previously known as "Katie" has put together a history of Earth and compilation of extraterrestrial science and metaphysical ideas that appears impressive, though confusing at first look. The more I go through her materials the more they seem like propaganda for some secret society or ET faction - lots of potentially accurate details being used to carry a deception or manipulation into the reader's consciousness. There is an excessive focus on galactic politics and how they have played out in the conflicts over Earth. The Keylontic science stuff seems to have some validity, but in my opinion misses the deepest levels of reality and healing - consciousness and spiritual awareness/integration. Aliens with holographic technology who can interdimensionally abduct people and create artificial reality and illusions seem like control freaks [regardless of whether they believe they are acting for someone else's good] who need to learn to be in harmony with creative flow and basic spiritual principles. With all the ETs and entities who claim they wish to help humanity against the "dark" powers, why do they just communicate with a small sample of people instead of offering their help to the general population? I strongly encourage a read of the Matrix 5 books by Valerian for those who are prepared to explore this further. This author of the Voyagers books seems to be caught in the midst of a galactic/global power struggle among beings preoccupied with shaping this space-time reality to their liking. This is certainly interesting stuff and better than most ET contactee materials, but I would not accept the contents at face value. There are certainly some useful ideas about personal empowerment in this book, yet these are accompanied by ritualistic belief systems of a more subtle nature that may keep you from exploring your true self more fully.

5-0 out of 5 stars Any serious seeker of truth must read this book.
This book, and it's following Voyagers II, will let you see clearly: 1) Where are you from, 2) What are you doing here, 3)Where are you going and most important; 4) How to get there.
Go slowly for there is a lot of information and take your time to grasp it, for it will be one of the most important imformation about you life, your true potential as a being and your purpose that you may come across.
Once you red it go ahead and practice some of the exercises and you will never see your life in the same way for your true mission in life will be revealed to you (by you).

2-0 out of 5 stars Barely readable, I wonder about it all ...
I purchased this book after hearing Anna Hayes (now Ashayana Deane) speak in Florida. At the time, I wished my husband -- a clinical psychologist --had been with me. She was extremely engaging, but very paranoid. She said the dark aliens were messing with her husband's mind (Gruber) and he was in the hospital, in a mental ward.

Still, I bought her book and found it barely comprehensible. I've been a student of metaphysics for over 25 years and am fairly up on physics and reasonably intelligent (Phi Beta Kappa) yet, the book -- especially at the end-- is barely intelligible.

Then, later, I see she's remarried and changed her name. Whether her husband ever got out of the mental ward and changed his name, or this is a new guy, I don't know.

Later, I saw she's doing seminars on Indigo Children, a take-off on work done by Nance Anne Tappe 20+ years ago. I don't know the content of Anna's seminars, but doubt they add much to original work.

Let's just say my own information is that there is considerable "Astral mischief" going on at the present time and I wonder if Anna/Ashayana -- like her former husband, Gruber-- may not be the victim of some of those same mischievious forces.

Anyone wanting the REAL lowdown on what's going on should read the works (or watch the videos) of Dr. David R. Hawkins. ... Read more

Book Description

Eons ago, the Earth was a battlefield. Mighty armies clashed, led by giant warriors meticulously skilled in the art of combat. These wars would shape man's destiny and live on for centuries in legend, song and religious lore -- brutal and terrible conflicts that began lifetimes earlier on another planet.

In the astonishing third volume of Zecharia Sitchin's The Earth Chronicles, the internationally renowned scholar parts the mists of myth and time to return to the violent beginnings of humanity -- employing ancient text, religious documents and archaeological findings to reconstruct epic events that support the existence of extraterrestrial "god" who once set nation against nation, army against army, and man against man.

5-0 out of 5 stars IMHO, The Best of the Earth Chronicles Series
This book is the one that best answered the questions that came to mind after I first began reading the Earth Chronicles. After some independent study I had voiced an opinion online that I was convinced we were descendents of an angelic race, to which someone had queried, You've been reading Sitchin? Who? I asked. I did a web-search and found some critiques of Sitchin's reasearch, read them, and promptly went out and bought 12th Planet . Sitchin's scholarship and translation of the clay tablets provided the background and filled in the holes of my theory of man's origins. Like Sitchin, I too began my quest after pondering over the begining of the Noah chapter of Genesis that tells of the Sons of gods taking the daughters of man for their wives. Sitchin was way ahead of me, though. All of the Earth Chronicles provided new insights, with plenty of documentation to back up his theories. The Wars of Gods and Men was, to me, the most relevant for opinions to answers I was seeking. I have continued to read every other author I can find that tackles these subjects and have refined my own opinions about them. Zecharia Sitchin remains the vanguard in this quest, and I find his scholarship indispensible. For several years now I have been trying to find holes in his basic premise, only to find slight differences of opinions as regards minor points. Applying his translations of ancient wisdom, I invariably arrive at the most plausible answers to questions that seem to still evade modern scientists. When I read about a new scientific theory it is often laughable when I consider the most plausible answers can be found if only modern science and religion would shake their dogma and realize man has been in possesion of those answers for some 6,000 years. After Sitchin, I never feel I am any longer blind. He has assisted me in gaining my sight. If only the rest of the world could see so clearly.

If you are open minded and looking for those books begging for its pages to be turned...look no further. I just read a copy of Edgar Fouche's 'Alien Rapture,' which also blew me away. Fouche was a Top Secret Black Program 'insider', whose credibility has been verified over and over. Another fun book is Brad Steiger's 'Werewolf.' I also really liked Dan Brown's 'Angels and Demons.' Want to be shocked, check out Dr. Paul Hill's 'Unconventional Flying Objects' which NASA tried to ban.

1-0 out of 5 stars A war against sanity, more like!
This is more like a war against sanity than a war against dogma and narrow-mindedness. It is completely crack-pot stuff, and anyone who parts with hard-earned money to buy it, thinking to be led to some new revelation, is to be pitied. The alleged "scholarship" is dead wrong, the "scientific" methodology either laughable or non-existant, depending on one's point of view, and the overarching premises simply crazy.

It is a sad commentary on our level of education when utter garbage like this can be peddled to the credulous.

Proves that if you keep an open mind people will throw all their crap in it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage for the Gullible
It took me some time to suspect, and even more time to actually become convinced, that this idiotic garbage is actually meant to be TAKEN SERIUOSLY! like, I mean, to be BELIEVED! It is in fact a cobbling-together of some fairly half-witted 1930s science-fiction plots. To anyone with even a smattering of real scientific or archeological knowledge it is simply beneath criticism, if not beneath a proper contempt. It makes von Daniken look like a disciplined, serious researcher.

5-0 out of 5 stars The war against dogma and narrowmindedness
Before i go on to state what i think of this book let me say what i generally think of Sitchin's books: they are so controversial and dogma-shattering that simply on the premise that one should challenge his mind by putting it against the "unthinkable" can one ensure that his mind is what is called an "open mind". This, after all, is the greatest of the Socratean principles.
Dont expect from this review, or from any review, or from anybody, to "push" you to read books like the "Wars of Gods...".Consider it your...obligation to your mind to be allowed to be challenged by books like this. This is my suggestion/proposition.
Now to the book itself: what you get here is first of all a rather brief recapitulation of what Sitchin has already proposed in the first 2 books of the "chronicles". Then, he develops his incredible theory(?) further by stating the following:
Internal rivalries amongst the aliens that had inhabited this planet 100s of millenia ago (these were the "gods") led to brutal and merciless wars for supremacy. Humans -who for the uninitiated, were the result of genetic cloning of these aliens- were eventually also entered into the picture to either fight the wars for their "gods" or in many instances to fight alongside them.
While Sitchin is narrating all this he inevitably comes upon ancient architectural mysteries like the pyramids and he offers a stunning theory for their purpose: the pyramids were space centers equipped with high technology and were vital for the control of space activity above this planet. They became main targets in certain wars between "gods and men" and much of what they contained was either destroyed or looted.
As any serious professional or amateur pyramid researcher knows, the mainstream explanations offered about how they were built and why are laughable. Sitchin's theory on them makes sense if, of course, you come to accept his overall picture. But I'll get to that a bit further on.
This book is concluded in a booming close-out as the author professes that the space facilities in the Sinai peninsula were destroyed in an ancient nuclear war and that there are deep geographical "scars" to attest to this, visible even today!
This is a very strict summary of what you will encounter in the "Wars of gods and men". There are other equally engaging issues that Sitchin tackles here but the aforementioned ones are of higher significance.
It goes without saying that you should actually read Sitchin in the chronological and logical order of his books. Start from the fascinating "Twelfth planet" first before you venture onto this book here.
Sitchin, as those who have read him, know, is no great writer. As an author he is actually tiring, not that he can help it much considering the task he lays to himself, but he obviously lacks the talent for narration. He compensates for that by being a tremendous researcher and a fearless mind. You can be great at researching but if your mind is too dogmatic it wont allow you to arrive at the right conclusions anyway. Sitchin is a totally daring mind though. I'm not sure that any researcher with his knowledge and talent would dare go against what is considered sacred dogma about our species: that we originate from apes (by the way: so how come some apes developed into humans and some didnt? and what keeps the rest of the apes all these millenia from also developing into humans???).
Anyhow, critics will say that it's extremely difficult to verify Sitchin's translations as one would first have to learn Avyssynian and Sumerian. Well, yes, one would, but you see, the problem is that the people who have offered you the theories you learned about the ancient world at school had not learned those languages. Yet you accept their theories without much questioning. How come? Wouldn't it be absolutely essential to be able to read the scripts in the original before you even attempt any theorising?
This is a tremendous idea that this author offers and is in my opinion recquired reading considering the massive bulk of unanswered questions concerning where we come from , what we are, and what our past is. The most serious reason i can provide you with for reading this is out of respect to your very own mind. Keep it open. ... Read more

Book Description

Convincing evidence that the Egyptian, Sumerian, and Dogon civilizations were founded by aliens from the Sirius star system who are now ready to return. * Updated with 140 pages of new scientific evidence that solidifies * the hypothesis that the KGB, CIA, and NASA attempted to suppress. * An awe-inspiring work of research that calls for a profound * reappraisal of our role in the universe. * Over 10,000 copies sold in its first two months of release in Britain. * Revised and Expanded Edition of the Bestseller.

Publication of The Sirius Mystery in 1976 set the world abuzz with talk of an extraterrestrial origin to human civilization and triggered a 15-year persecution campaign against Robert Temple by the KGB, CIA, NASA, and other government agencies. Undaunted, however, Temple is back, with 140 pages of new scientific evidence that makes his hypothesis more compelling than ever.

Many authors have speculated on the subject of extraterrestrial contact, but never before has such detailed evidence been presented. Drawing equally on his astounding knowledge of ancient history, mythology, Pythagorean physics, chaos theory, and Greek, and using measurements of the Great Pyramid of Giza--built to align directly with the star Sirius--Temple concludes that the alien civilization of Sirius and our own civilization are part of the same harmonic system, destined to function and resonate together. His findings are sure to bring a profound reappraisal of our role in the universe. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting read. Unconclusive.
Temple's theory that an intelligent civilization from a planet orbiting Sirius visited a primitive Africian tribe makes for an interesting read. He presents his information well. His arguments are intelligent, but not easily verified.

The book would have been better enhanced by independent research (not under his control) and an objective presentation of the counter-arguments to his theory (Temple does not acknowledge the possiblity that he could be wrong). Another problem: Temple presents his theory and the supporting evidence during the first (interesting) part of the book, and after that he launches into his other ideas such as the long ago discounted idea of a Mars mountain carved to look like a human face or the idea that the hind quarters of the Sphinx represents a dog not a lion. (In reality, the hind quarters of the Sphinx, if not leonine, are probably that of a bull such that the four key quarters of the zodiac are represented: lion (Leo), man (Aquarius), bull (Tauras); wings now missing (Scorpio).

One thing that helps support Temple's theory is that the Dogon themselves appear to believe it, and they maintain that they have passed the wisdom of this visitation from space down from the ages. The book does not explore verifying to what extent we can ascertain that the Dogon are telling us the truth about this visitation and trying to answer why, after a visitation from space, the Dogon don't have other advanced knowledge besides that of the star Sirius.

Those criticisms aside, I think Temple may be onto something here and for that, this book is worth the read. Don't expect the kind of depth and research you'd get from Graham Hancock, but you can expect not to have to deal with anything as easy to refute as Sitchen. (For example, Sitchen postulates the existence of a civilization on a 12th planet with a 3600 year orbital period, but doesn't acknowledge that such a planet would cause orbital irregularities--not found--in the other planets or explain how life could exist on a planet with no external heat source or photosynthesis).

4-0 out of 5 stars Use it as a piece to a gigantic puzzle...
To begin with, I give this book 4 stars and not 5 because it would be arrogant of me to offer the highest mark when i happen to have only surface knowledge on the majority of the issues this books deals with. Having said that, i find it comical if not outright hilarious that certain people give one star because that would imply they can actually take every argument this book offers apart! Now, for those that have actually read the Sirius Mystery thesis, we're talking about not one argument here, but dozens which this researcher uses to put together a central argument. This would mean that the people who are burying this book are ultra-masters of archaeology, mythology, astronomy and history. Well, guess what: they are not. Guess again: no such masters exist (R.Temple included) and all that is going on is that we're basically trying to battle our cluelessness of our origin and history and as we do we find out that the mysteries we need to explain are by no means easy tasks.
The Piri Reis maps? Water erosion on the Sphinx? Come again? Noone, certainly not mainstream science has offered adequate explanations (to put it mildly) about these mysteries and the same goes about the human origin. No need to mention the ever eluding missing link, is there?
Why do i give this book 4 stars myself then? I'll hold that explanation, if i may, for the end of this review.

For the "uniinitiated", Robert Temple trigers his research by starting from the FACT that a tribe called Dogon in Africa happens to have knowledge about the Sirius star system they are not supposed to have i.e that Sirius A is "hiding" in its orbit a Sirius B and possibly a Sirius C (recently confirmed much to the dismay of the fanatical opposition Temple was met with, very unsurprisingly), or that Sirius B is a "heavy star" i.e a very dense star.

Now, when this knowledge by the Dogon was revealed to the western world (through the work of 2 French anthropologists) many of the things claimed by the ancient tradition of the Dogon were not known by western astronomers. In fact, only years later it became evident for western "science" (the same science that used to think the earth was flat, and the same "science" that only 300 years ago disputed that theere is blood circulation in the human body-!!!!- among many other such "scientific" facts) that the Dogon beliefs were solid.

Before i go on, i would like to laugh out loud at the ultragullible folk who think the Dogon took this knowledge from western expeditioners as Carl Sagan ridiculously suggested. I mean, what's the scenario here people? Western expeditioners show up to the Dogon and the first thing they decide to brainwash them with is stories about the Sirius star system which they themselves did NOT have? I mean, are some of you that irrational? And how does it go on according to you then? That the Dogon lost no time in constructing a religion out of something so abstract i.e a star they could NOT see from stories some white people told them that they couldnt possibly prove???? Nice one, but i've heard better jokes, and frankly, this is hardly a laughing matter, it's actually bitter how some will cling to hardly proven theories about our origins no matter how sad their outtake is...

But on to the book and excuse me for the above parenthetical argument but i simply couldnt resist it.

What Temple is forced to do after he presents us with what the Dogon know, is to backtrack. He has to do this because there is indeed more than enough evidence that such bizzare references (as the Dogon's) are to be found in other ancient cultures as well, namely the Sumerians, Egyptians and the Greeks. His "hunch" proves to be very revealing as Temple searches through these ancient cultures because he does actually highlight not a few but a plethora of such references, symbolisms and -mostly- myths that contribute to his argument.

Did i say myths? Whoa. Touchy little subject those myths. Those who consider themselves serious studiers of all theories concerning our tortured origin must've discovered by now that mythology is nothing else than a brilliantly devised method the ancients used to preserve knowledge. Whoa again, because knowledge does include history and in the absence of books the ancients basically coded history into mythology. Is Temple the only one who has uncovered this mega-fact? Not even close.

The author then, needs to trouble us with a lengthy diatribe where he delves into ancient mythology and he focuses for that matter in the medditteranean basin. That's a seriously difficult part of the book to get through. You will be bombarded with dozens of ancient gods, dozens of ancient myth comparisons, massive amounts of etymology, and a fair share of speculations and conclusions. The reward if you stay with the book is tremendous.

Temple doesnt pull his conclusions out of thin air no matter how "outworldly" these conclusions might be to some. His work is spectacularly researched and supported, and yes, he actually pulls the evidence for the support he needs from mainstream science. His massive bibliography is there to see.

The issue remains whether , at the end, you are ready to entertain the notion that the origin of our civilisation is indeed extraterrestrial, or, to be more to the point here, whether Temple convinces with his arguments.

Allow me to say, that it will take a lot more than Temple's book to be convinced about that, if that is actually the truth. Let's not forget that he's not the first researcher that makes such claims or draws such conclusions.
In my opinion, and knowing that our "mainstream" science doesnt exactly have a history of excellence when it comes to its field record, i would suggest that each theory forwarded by any researcher, no matter how "wild" it might be, is given the appropriate attention.

Has Temple been disproven? Hardly. Actually, recent discoveries by our brilliant scientists have only confirmed parts of his theory.

I'm not saying that I, for one, am 100% convinced by what Temple suggests. I'm not unconvinced either, indeed I think that he does a stunning job of laying out his theory and his arguments, and to quote an Arab philosopher "i believe in very little but i disbelieve in even less".
That is the reason i give this book 4 stars. Based solely on the convcincingness factor of the author's way of argumentation which i found pretty damn strong.

This book, as other books of that "line" as well, can or should be used as pieces to a puzzle, a puzzle which we do not know what it looks like and where it will finally (if we ever solve it) take us. If the truth interests us, if it honestly does, then hysteric rants against any theories that threaten our sacred dogmas have no place in searching for any origin, ours, or the universe's...
"The Sirius mystery" is a difficult book, but a very compelling, a very impressive one at that. Until the theory contained in it is disproven hold the noise of the rants down. And read it...Read it actually through.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money and time
Temple is a writer, but not an "author" in my view. He lacks craftsmanship in this volume. His first chapter vents his spleen against those who have opposed, betrayed, or disagreed with him. The chapter is titled "The Sirius Mystery Today". The second chapter finally gets to "What is the Mystery?". At best, the first chapter belongs in an annex. His priorities are evident. The rest of the volume lacks organization and objectivity as well, there being no logical stream of delivery. The subject is fascinating, but is better treated by Zecharia Sitchin, Lloyd Pye, Andy Lloyd, and others.
Save your money and time.

3-0 out of 5 stars say hello to mr tangent
This book has some great information and interesting theories but the author gets sidetracked so often it becomes tedious. I felt like I was being punished and made to sift through way too many side stories to enjoy the book. About 100 of the 400 pages of writing were genuinely interesting and told the story of the dogon tribe and their encounters with amphibious aliens from sirius. The rest was a treatise on greek mythology which I could have done without. The blurbs on sumerian mythology are better covered by zecharia sitchin in his earth chronicles series. All in all some good info but a pain in the arse to get to.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting if True¿or True if Interesting?
This updated version of Temple's book begins with a statement that his original theory has been vindicated by newly discovered facts about the Sirius star system showing it be a three-star system. He goes on to a tirade against his detractors, including people from NASA, and the intriguing information that the CIA kept tabs on him after he first published his theories about long-ago alien contact with our planet. The Sirius Mystery is based on studies of the Dogon, an African tribe that seems to have detailed knowledge of the Sirius star system, including astronomical information only recently discovered. The author builds this into a story about amphibious visitors from a watery planet orbiting Sirius. He finds evidence in ancient stories from Sumer and Egypt, recounting the legend of Oannes, who came from the sea and seemed to be half fish.

What I find interesting about Temple's material is how much of it is familiar from other books of this genre (which I enjoy reading), but how he manages to put a completely different spin on it. Was Oannes actually half fish, or did his space ship land in water and the emerging being reminded those who saw him of a "fish-man" (as other writers have suggested)? Temple makes no mention of Zecariah Sitchen who writes of many of the same ancient events from Sumerian history. To Sitchen, the Annunaki were the astronauts from the planet Nibiru (in our own solar system), but in Temple's book they become anonymous Sirian gods who are mainly there so the number 50 can be worked into the story. This number has significance for the Sirius star system and ancient legends, he says, incorporated this number to emphasize its significance.

In much the same way, Graham Hancock (in Fingerprints of the Gods) shows how ancient stories worked in the numbers that signify the precession, the 25,000 year cycle of the zodiak around the horizon. Another book I've read discussed the use of the magic number 7 (7 wonders of the world, 7 deadly sins, etc.). It seems like a good working theory that ancient stories do incorporate numbers that are important and need to be remembered, but in this case, it's a stretch to associate the number 50 used in ancient legends with the movements of distant stars, the whole thing held together by the beliefs of an obscure African tribe.

Temple provides some interesting material on the ancient oracle centers, the best known being the Oracle of Delphi, and the associated omphalos stones. while this made fascinating reading, I found his logic sometimes hard to follow and kept waiting for a better connection between these means of ancient communication and the knowledge of the Dogon. The book wanders around a lot and is full of opinionated rants that decrease its credibility.

But the heart of the matter is really whether it is true that the Dogon somehow acquired knowledge of Sirius and associated stars and whether the method of acquiring this knowledge was visitation from ancient astronauts. Many other writers have picked up on Temple's main theme and restate his thesis that the Dogon, an unsophisticated people, know all about Sirius. But the whole thing is based on the work of two anthropologists who gained the trust of informants among the Dogon and related tribes. They described the belief system that involved Sirius, and it is all rather curious. But I find it difficult to feel as positive as Temple does that what he has laid bare is evidence of visitation by intelligent amphibians from a distant planet. The picture section in the book is great, and the complete work by the two anthropologists (translated from French) is in an Appendix. If you can stand to wade through all the material in this book, you may be able to form an opinion. Or you may be just as confused as I am. It's interesting, but is it true? ... Read more

One of the charms of Zecharia Sitchin is his tendency to take ancient writings as fact as opposed to myth. For example, according to clay tablets discovered by archeologists, Gilgamesh, a king of ancient Sumeria, was punished by the gods for raping female subjects on their wedding day--a particularly naughty, though not uncommon, pastime of ancient royalty. Snickering, the tricky gods created a double of him, which, as you can imagine, created havoc in the king's life. Some time later, directed by his goddess mother, Gilgamesh walked with his double to Lebanon to attain immortality. Sitchin ponders that perhaps the double had superhuman strength and en route built a second Stonehenge discovered in the Golan Heights by Israelis during the 1967 Six Days War. Hmmm. As Sitchin concedes, there's really no way to tell who actually built this hoary structure, but the in-depth archeological and historical research gathered here to support his musings concerning an extraterrestrial secret code to construct humankind is fascinating beyond belief. --P.

5-0 out of 5 stars Our ET genetic engineers may have left us a coded message!
Book VI of the Earth Chronicles, "The Cosmic Code", continues Zechariah Sitchin's saga of the Nefilim and their influence on the fate of mankind. In his usual style of inciteful speculation and careful culling of evidence from ancient materials, Sitchin has added a number of new threads to the tapestry of the extraterrestrial intervention hypothesis.

If this is the first book of Sitchin's that you will read, you will find there is enough introductory and review material to bring you up to speed on the tale as told thus far. For the veteran Sitchin reader there is a wealth of new and provocative material to amaze and stimulate further investigation. Those of us who have been enthralled by the "Bible Code" research and revelations will find intelligent and useful insights into it's precursor codes in the cunieform writing system. Kabbalists will find that they too are indebted to the Annunaki for much of the wisdom and understanding contained within their field of study.

For this reader the most fascinating aspect of Sitchin's recent research embodied in "The Cosmic Code" concerns the relationship between the Hebrew alphabet and the genetic code. This is an area that I have been working in for many years. In personal correspondence with Mr. Sitchin regarding this relationship between the language of life and the language of the Torah I outlined the evidence for a deep analogy between the Hebrew letters and the amino acids of the genetic code. With his usual insight, Mr. Sitchin responded, "... Hebrew is just a form of Akkadian, and that the current Hebrew alphabet ("square letters") emanated in the Aramaic. If there is commonality, I would seek it in the earlier Sumerian phase." (personal correspondence, May 31, 1994)

Within the pages of "The Cosmic Code" Sitchin proposes that the alphabet is based on the genetic code and provides insight into how and why such a thing could be. Armed with these insights one might be stimulated to attack the idea that there are meaningful passages of text hidden away within the human genome that could shed further light on the origins of mankind and the intentions (past and future?) of the extraterrestrial genetic engineers who created us.

Thank you Mr. Sitchin.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Companion
Waiting for Sitchin's new books, is like waiting for the next Episode of Star Wars. It just can't come soon enough. This is an excellent companion volume to the Earth Chronicle series and sheds additional light. The more you read, the more you ask; Are we more like the Anunnaki or are they more like us? Good book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth reading
If Sitchin's Annunaki theories is what you like reading this book is just like his other books. This is a recap on his interpretations of ancient Sumerarian writtings.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mind-boggling! Paradigm-shattering! Indispensable!
You've read the orthodox, conventional, sanitized view of the past. Now read linguist and scholar Zecharia Sitchin for the rest of the story. Only he provides a framework in which all becomes intelligible.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST SITCHIN BOOK EVER!
Mr. Sitchin drives it all home with his latest book. He takes a lot of the important material from his other books and sort of "sums it all up." If you only buy one Sitchin Book, make it this one. It is certainly his best(in my opinion.) ... Read more

Book Description

Zecharia Sitchin's autobiographical recounting of a half century of investigative expeditions to unravel the enigmas of ancient civilizations and their gods.

• Includes vivid accounts of explorations in Greece, Thera, Crete, Egypt, the Sinai, Israel, Jordan, and Mesoamerica.

• Reveals behind-the-scenes findings in museums and archaeological sites.

• Contains 60 color and 159 black-and-white images from the author's personal archive, including previously unpublished photographic evidence of UFOs in biblical times.

For the first time, Zecharia Sitchin, author of the bestselling The Earth Chronicles series, reveals the foundational research and adventurous expeditions that resulted in the concrete evidence for his conclusions that ancient myths were recollections of factual events, that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet, and that we are not alone in our own solar system. In the course of his investigations Sitchin also became convinced of the veracity of the Bible.

Sitchin's expeditions take readers from the Yucatan peninsula to the isle of Crete to ancient Egypt and the lands of the Bible as he explores the links between the Old World and the New World. His adventurous exploits reveal archaeological cover-ups concerning Olmec origins in Mexico and ancient UFO artifacts in Turkey. Other quests send him through the holy sites of Jerusalem, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon in search of evidence of extraterrestrial gods in the artifacts and murals of these ancient civilizations. The Earth Chronicles Expeditions is a masterful historical and archaeological adventure into the origins of mankind and a "must" guidebook for all who wish to visit the numerous sites and museums covered in this book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars I See the Pictures, I'm not Quite Convinced.
Mr. Sitchin is a believer that ancient astronaughts roamed the earth. He views artifacts carefully selected from around the world and explains their appearance in terms of modern reference. This book is a journal of many trips made over several years. It could serve as a summary of his findings and beliefs that are summarized in his other twelve books.

The author is an eminent member of the, I guess you would call it, 'alternative archeology' school. He looks at a statue of a girl, or a piece of carved stone and he sees evidence of space travel in the ancient past. That round thing on the head of a statue: could it be a helmet made of something tough to deflect a sword, or is it a crash helmet like those worn by pilots. That spaceship shaped piece of stone: is it a model of a real space ship, or perhaps a model of a boat. That statue of a goddess holding a vase: why would she be carrying a clay pot type vase while wearing headphones with an unbilical cord attached to the back of her space suit while she is bare brested in front.

I look, I'm not so sure I see what he sees. Still it's a good book for summarizing an alternative past.

2-0 out of 5 stars Sitchin, the new Von Daniken -- pseudoscience par excellence
It's a shame that Amazon places Sitchin's books in its science section. Americans are ignorant enough of science as it is, and this just further blurs the boundary between solid scientific research and pseudoscientific myths. I suppose there are those who enjoy Sitchin strictly as entertainment, and I have no problem with that. I remember when I was in high school I though Van Daniken's "ancient astronauts" theory was really cool.

It really is amazing what people will believe, though. With fundamentalist creationists and new agers rampant already, it just seems sad and symptomatic of the anti-intellectualism of American society that this stuff apparently has a large following. Sitchin and other similar mavericks and cranks always complain that mainstream science doesn't take them seriously, but consider -- how much time would be wasted if real scientists had to check on the claims of every crank in the world?

Read for entertainment, sure, but if what you're interested in is the truth, read the works of reputable scholars of the ancient societies, not just cranks.

5-0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed every minute of the reading...
The books of Mr. Sitchin (and Velikovsky) made me a firm believer in alienism. This latest book, along with the animated prose, also held several suprises: unexpected/unknown facts or theories Sitchin pulled out of his sleeve during the narrative of the journies.
I was also touched by some shadow of sadness that are in the air of some of his stories: frustrations, missed oppotunities, unlucky coincidences: were he belonged to the establisment science, live would be much easier...
All in all, I enjoyed both the stories and the revelations (yes, this word) in the stories, not to speak about the superb colour plates.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Earth Chronicles Expeditions; Journeys to the Mythical p
This book is in common with Zechairia Sitchin`s other works of Earth shattering importance. His books deal with the surpressed and un-told truths of OUR TRUE HISTORY AND BIRTH as a species of intellect, and spiritual ( even though he keeps himself apart from using his own take on things, he only writes the facts,that which Mr. Sitchin is "unsurpassed" in.) beings. Mr.Sitchin books are found in the "new age" and other type of headings, this I think should be saved for books that can not be proven factual ( or at least the "info" given ) . The new book involves Mr. Sitchin and his remarkable information hunt and quest. This gives the reader the aspect that he saw and lived in some of the most debated places on Earth ( the Temple mound etc.,) I highly recommend this book and his other works to anyone who whishes to understand our true roots and history.

5-0 out of 5 stars ¿Earth Chronicles,¿ destined to be his best work yet.
Sitchin, the scientist, the archeologist, the Sumerian expert, is one of the leading figures in alternative archaeology and science in general. Earth Chronicles is the pinnacle of his erudite career.

I have been a fan of Sitchin for years and have read most of his books, but "The Twelfth Planet was my favorite of all. He lays it all out; from Biblical text, ancient Sumerian writings and obscure writings, to reveal that in ancient times UFOnauts from other worlds did indeed visit and influence our ancient civilizations greatly. Then he wrote 'Earth Chronicles," destined to be his best work yet.

These days, and especially the last 30-40 years, a "new wave" of scientists and non-scientists alike has risen with the intention of re-examining what we as a species consider "knowledge", knowledge about what we are, and where we come from. Sitchin, being one of the few people in the world who can actually read Sumerian, has spent his life examining our origins, and his conclusions have little to do with apes descending trees and miraculously evolving into humans.

In the "12th planet", his most famous of his all together 12+ books, he suggests that we are actually the creation of an alien race which landed on earth more than 450 millennia ago, and who created us as slave labor for their purposes on this planet back then. From then on, and through a myriad inter-developments and influences, we developed to what we are today.

Sure, this sounds controversial, and to most people content with swallowing mainstream teachings for "facts" this might seem as pure science fiction. You would have to read this book before you term it as such though.

"Earth Chronicles" is an exhausting book too, as the author uses literally 100s of quotes on original translations he's made in order to make his argument and this isn't just any argument, you understand...

Sitchin isn't just another quack with a theory, he is an eminent Orientalist, respected Biblical scholar, expert Sumerian archeologist, and recognized leader in revealing the real truth in the enigmas of ancient civilizations and history especially related to Sumerians, Hebrews, their Gods, and cultures in the middle-east. The unpublished photographic evidence alone is worth the read and the price. times. Were ancient Gods visitors to Earth from another planet? Are we not alone? Have others influenced our civilization and evolution? This read is an adventure, an eye opener, a thrill, an education, and fun as hell! A tour guide to our future with beacons from the past.

If you read this excellent book, you will know that it is indeed the truth. Two well-respected American Astronauts have come forward to proclaim they had seen evidence of the Roswell UFO crash and stated they know the cover-up is real. You be the judge. Read this book.

You ever wondered why we are the only species on this planet that definitely does not fit in with its environment? Or why we have so many gray areas and disagreements about where we originate from and how? Or why the word "anthropos" (a Greek word) means "the creature that always looks up"? Or even why the root word of the word "earth" comes from the ancient Sumerian (the word e.ri.du) and means "a home far away"?

If you are open minded and looking for those books begging for its pages to be turned...look no further. I just read a copy of Edgar Fouche's best-selling 'Alien Rapture,' which also blew me away. Fouche was a Top Secret Black Program 'insider', whose credibility has been verified over and over. And it's going to be a movie! Want to be shocked, check out Dr. Paul Hill's 'Unconventional Flying Objects' which NASA tried to ban or the bestselling "Alien Agenda." ... Read more

Book Description

In Secret Life, Professor David M. Jacobs of Temple University takes us into the private world of those abducted by aliens, letting them describe in their own words what it is like to be abducted. Based on interviews with sixty individuals and more than 300 independently corroborated accounts, Secret Life presents the most complete and accurate picture of alien abductions ever compiled.Dr. Jacobs takes the reader on a minute-by-minute journey through a typical abduction experience and describes in detail the bizarre physical, mental and reproductive procedures that abductees claim have been administered by small alien beings. Jacobs draws from these interviews a profoundly unsettling reason behind the abductions: aliens are conducting a complex reproductive experiment involving the conception, gestation. or incubation of human and alien hybrid beings. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars best summary on UFO's
While some books center around a person or group of individuals from a specific area, this one concerns a variety of people and experiences. It provides a summary of various stages of abduction, and is easy to read. If I could only have one book in my UFO library, this would be it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The truth is out there!
I believe the previous reviewer has made some preposterous allegations. He states that Mr. Jacobs has "mentally" kidnapped and brain washed all 60 of his case studies. That is a serious charge that has no base in fact.
Having said that I would like to get on with the task of reviewing this book. The "Secret Life" book is very well written and it is obvious that the author has put a lot of time and care in compiling such and auspicious document as this. Aside from being stylistically pleasing it is also well written from a professional scientific standpoint. There were many words and phrases that I did not understand in this book which just goes to prove it has a basis in scientific study. As I said the book is so enjoyable to read I did not waste time looking up the words/phrases in question.
I will not argue the question "are there aliens", I think we all know that yes there are. In the paper Professor Weezinbaum published at the Bjornschruble Institute of Hamburg he proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that "Yes Virginia there is an alien life form". The obvious silence by the military and the government only proved his point too well. But I digress...back to Mr. Jacobs iron clad proof of alien abductions.
The fiendish penchant for "probing" these aliens have is truly alarming. After reading this book I no longer leave the house at night. Also if I do see any craft or lights over head I make a hasty retreat for the nearest house. Much to my neighbors surprise and the irritation of our local police department.
This book also does a decent job of explaining the space time continuum and the molycule theory. Before reading this book I only had a vague notion of how molycules work. Now I understand how we are all made of them and they are continually moving. That is why when I get on a bus I always sit on my hat. Which keeps strangers molycules off my pants.
Also after reading this excellent document I believe I have a pretty good idea on how to spot human/alien half breeds. I won't go into the details but you would be surprised how many "people" are walking around that are not human.
So I am giving this book two thumbs up! Hint: That's a clue on how to tell if someone is really human. Buy this book, enjoy it and test your family members.

1-0 out of 5 stars Did you say aliens"?
David Jacobs indicates that he does not want to talk about the "REALITY" of it all. Jacobs shows the UFO memory common factors but not the human life common factors. One first and foremost common factor is all of these individuals were hypnotized by David Jacobs. What other common factors did they have in their lives? Possibly subliminal messages to individuals from some outside source to get the person in Jacobs office in the first place and then maybe forcing some strange memories on these innocent human beings, transgressing their memories back in time so they think the alien abduction took place at say the age 12 etc. Dehumanizing is a Trick of Satin. I find this book unbelievable and dehumanizing with all of the UFO medical body probing. If there were aliens as intellectual and advanced as indicated it wouldn't take years of research and medical probing of masses of people by the aliens to take over the earth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Abductees' God Is An Alien Creature
I read this book quite awhile ago but rememembe it well. I wrote a letter to the author and got a response back. This book is excellent in giving detailed information about what exactly happens during these bizzare abduction experiences. It goes beyond just physical activities to indicate what is going on in the abductee's mind. AND IT AIN'T PRETTY ! An abduction experience is a form of spiritual possession and overpowering. The abductee can feel the strange alien force enter their mind and body through their eyes at which point they can feel the alien presense taking control of them completely. After reading many books about ufo abductions and based on my own religious beliefs my conclusion is the alien force is a parasitical force on the human race. The alien creature seaks to create hybrid life forms by exploiting the life force that exists within every human being. Most likely every human being has something infinitely valuable within them and the alien creature seeks to exploit this for their own purposes. I suspect like vampires they have to do this because their own species is continuously dying out because they are evil creatures who seek to create life in a selfish way. Evidence indicates the alien creatures have the power to place a spirit into a human embryo which they have been involved in fertilizing so that the person who is born is actually an alien in human form. But I guess everyone is an alien in that sense. But that's why the abductees sometimes feel a certain bond with the alien creatures. They are alien spirits themselves. The alien / occult force seems to exist in parallel with the Creative force that most people are familiar with. These evil alien creatures sometimes crash their spaceships as happened in Roswell, New Mexico. This has been confirmed by the alien autopsy video which has yet to be disproven and never will be since it is real.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is THE abduction book to read.
There is no other book which so properly recounts reliable eyewitness testimony of this nature. Even Hopkins' "Intruders" doesn't quite reach this level. Mack's "Abduction" has too many new-age laced accounts. The conclusions and theories of Strieber's "Communion" *are* new-ageism, which he appears to now regret. This is the one to get if you wish to hear accounts of level-headed abductees who, I can guarantee, aren't going to turn around and say they made it all up, as happened in the case of Mack's. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars incredible
I have read most of Dolores Cannon's books and it seems each one gets better. The Convoluted Universe book One is a remarkable and fascinating exploration of other worldly beings,universes and dimensions. I loved it and can't wait for book two to be published.

5-0 out of 5 stars the Convoluted Universe
This book contains an incredible amount of information which stimulated my mind beyond measure.I realize that I should have read the book "Custodians" first but nevertheless I was spellbound and could not put the book down.I thoroughly recommend this book for those who are seeking knowledge and those who welcome to stretch their minds.


3-0 out of 5 stars An interesting book - but read with discernment.
I found this book to be very interesting, but I am rather skeptical about what she is actually doing.As with all of her books, she gets alot of esoteric information through clients, who end up retrieving information from - well, from wherever... Who is she actually talking to, and what is she actually learning?I think that the jury is out on this...

As a reader, I found the book to be rather long, and at times a bit tedious.However the topic itself is fascinating, and DC has a writing style that makes even the longest book seem to go in an instant.

As a hypnotherapist, I am very interested both in her techniques and in the theory behind her research.They are, to say the least, controversial - even among the hypnotherapists who do esoteric work.

I recommend the book for anyone interested in esoteric hypnosis, but I urge the reader to use considerable discernment when reading it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking information
This book represents the culmination of over 10 years of information obtained from working with subject's subconscious minds. Information, which until now could not be released because, either, it did not fit with the subject matter of previous books, or, it was not allowed by the supra intelligence which is influencing the timeline by which this information is to be released to the human race. As a result, there is a lot of new and important information regarding the origins of our human race, including such mysteries as crop circles, strange creatures, parallel universes, the nature of consciousness, mysteries of mummification, the construction of stonehenge and the pyramids, and other mysteries.
Interestingly, a few months ago a guest on Whitley Strieber's Unknown Country spoke of a group of British explorers who were firsthand observers of a Tibetan Buddhist ceremony during the first part of last century, and who witnessed the levitation of huge stones through the combined use of chanting and strange-looking "horn-like" instruments. This is the almost exact process which is described on page 216 of Dolores' book through one of her subjects, even down to the detail of having all participants breathing alternatively so that a constant sound could be maintained.
Perhaps more importantly, this book introduces new material available to Dolores only during the past three years explaining how extraterrestrials are influencing the genes of thousands of us in an effort to speed up our evolution in preparation for the coming changes. More information will be available in the coming sequel. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Some Wheat but Mostly Chaff
I was really looking forward to reading this book. But I must say I am disappointed. I believe the author's premise that extraterrestrials likely play a significant role in religious history. I have been a student of the UFO phenomenon for nearly forty years. I also have a graduate degree in biblical and religious studies. So I feel that I am qualified to say that poor scholarship compromises this book's credibility. This work is a collection of information from various sources that the author has interpreted to support his pre-conceived thesis. There is not much in the way of new or original information here. Documentation of source material is lacking for the numerous quotations and case studies cited in this book. This book is filled with inexcusable grammatical and typographical anomalies. The entire first quarter of this book is a tedious list of King James Bible verses quoted out of context. The author used Strong's Concordance to reference certain key words that he thinks are references to UFOs. These verses may or may not refer to UFOs, depending on how you interpret words like "heaven" and "cloud." The veracity of some of the author's case studies regarding anomalous artifacts is questionable according to other works in this genre. What really blew my mind was an entire page devoted to the author's argument that Jesus Christ had short hair and no beard! What does that have to do with UFOs and the history of religion? While there is some "wheat" to be found in this book, I must say that most of it is "chaff." Your money would be better spent on Linda Moulton Howe's "High Strangeness, vol. II."

5-0 out of 5 stars Long, but what an amazing book!
This book is filled with Bible versus implying flying vehicles coming from the sky and too look up at the sky because this where Christ is supposed to be coming with 20,000 of his flying vehicles. The deception is man will be decieved to think that the return of Christ will be some kind of alien invasion,and that man will be forced and deceived into fighting him, as states in the Bible-"very intersting". This book is filled with so much great informatiion that will shock you about the Elohym(the gods), the Malak( the angles),the Watchers, Enoch and so much more, so much too learn from this book. This a complete book from start to finish about aliens in the Bible. A must read for ufo buffs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truth, clarity and understanding.
The idea that extraterrestrials were the "gods" of ancient religious and mythological texts is not new. Even before the hugely popular books by Von Daniken, authors like Brinsley Le Poer Trench were mining the same vein in 'The Sky People', and more recently have been works like 'The Many Waters'by Lauretta Lueck and the revelatory 'The Yahweh Encounters'by Ann Madden Jones. With the publication of 'The Greatest Deception', author Patrick Cooke provides what may arguably be the capstone to this series of intellectual inquiries. While resisting the tendency of others to offer subjective interpretation, he lets the facts make the compelling case for the true meaning of Biblical writings: that mankind (and the planet's biosphere) are the products of technologically advanced beings, and that organized religion has purposely been deceiving humanity from the outset regarding this truth, and what it portends for the future.

The book is divided into four main sections. In the first section (The Bible Connection), the author painstakingly documents passages from the Bible (King James version), with attribution, to show conclusively that these were efforts to depict high technology by writers in a "primitive and no-tech time." He offers specific, Biblical language to demonstrate descriptions of vehicles, flight, technology of the Gods, technology of life and the Immortals (super beings). A typical example (of flight): Zechariah 5:1 "Then I turned, and lifted mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. 2. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth ten cubits."

In the second section (The Historical Connection), the author presents a chronological summary of high-tech craft (UFOs) throughout history, UFO quotations from prominent people and various UFO-related military and scientific projects.

Part three (The World Connection) includes fascinating accounts of terrestrial anomalies, anomalous constructions, human anomalies and the world's gods. The cumulative effect of this section is to nail the coffin shut on the specious, illogical "explanations" perpetrated by mainstream science, academia and governments. The fallacy of evolution is rendered particulary bankrupt of legitimacy.

The fourth and final section (Bible Misconceptions) unmasks the purposeful deception by organized religion regarding the true meaning of scripture, and the lessons imparted to man by the Elohiym and their leader, Yhovah (God)and the reasons for the deception. The reasons, of course, are "greed and lust for power."
What, then, is the "greatest deception?" That UFOs and 'aliens' are the modern-day manifestations of Satan. As Mr. Cooke accurately notes, "The religious community as a whole has one generic approach to the current debate over the UFO phenomenon; it is Satan's deception..." (for a veritable textbook example of this perversion, read 'Alien Encounters' by Missler and Eastman)
No, UFOs are not Satan's minions. They may well be, however, the signs of Jesus' return, as prophesied in the Bible. "The only admonition to watch the skies for anything is the declaration that that is where the returning Christ will first appear."

This book provides an invaluable tool to assist critically thinking people to unchain themselves from the self-promoting, cynical and manipulative deceptions foisted upon humankind by the religious dogmatists. Kudos to Mr. Cooke.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive and Extremely Interesting!
I would like you to know I was impressed with this book and the copious amount of research and supporting information provided. It is well worth the money and time to read. You will find something amazing and surprising on every page. It is easy enough to read and comprehend what the author is telling you...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Rare Find For A One Stop Reference Book
I was most impressed when I finally had gotten "The Greatest Deception - The Bible UFO Connection in, with over 450 some pages of references and information. The reader will soon be lost for words as they search through this most brilliantly written voyage through the ages of time...

You will find many references to the Bible broken down..
Yhovah Whirlwinds, Glowing Object Passes over, The Burning Bush, Wheels Ascended, Synchronized Accession, Voices In The Sky, Dark and Shiny Objects, Spinning Objects, The Immortals, Technology Of The GODS, Technology of Life and the list will go on and on. But "The Greatest Deception - The Bible UFO Connection" does not just cover the BIBLE it touches on much more to bring to light the evidence that has been know for millenniums, but have been pushed around..never to be heard from again.

"The Greatest Deception - The Bible UFO Connection" is a much valuable source for the readers of academe who wish to take on the challenges posed by the UFO phenomenon and not be afraid to voice their opinion

Learn of the infamous Crop Circles, the Mighty wonders of the world and the great misconceptions of the common Bible. Learn about the Churches and their FEARS.

You will also learn of the feats about, Human Anomalies such as the massive giants that walked with us. The Ancient technology and what we have lost through the years. Special Talents, Effects and People will amaze you..also touching on the Cattle Mutilations and embedded artifacts, along with the crop art and Agriglyphs..

I applaud the goal of the writer (Patrick Cooke) for putting together this most interesting, serious and impressive book. I'm sure that both the scientific and religion aspect will remain controversial and maybe one day we will answer the Who? What? Where? and Why? questions...

If you've ever wondered what crashed into the desert near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, this book will give you some startling answers. While the first version was published in hardcover in 1997, Corso provides new evidence for the presence of alien intruders in this pocket paperback edition. Whether or not you believe his contention, the sheer weight of governmental sources and documentation presented by the former Army intelligence officer is not easily dismissed. Once you understand the historical context (in the midst of the Cold War soon after World War II, with Orson Welles having recently inspired panic in citizens with his fictional War of the Worlds radio broadcast), the military deciding to cover up a real-life alien ship becomes more credible. Corso also gives a convincing explanation of why reports were so multi-various and conflicting. Even if you believe the book is utter fiction, it's still a compelling read. --Randall Cohan ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Actually read the book before you comment!
I just finished reading the book and found it very interesting. Yes, he could have elaborated on several topics, but he is still a credible military officer. If you read the book for what it is you will get the understanding that it probably did happened. With his credentials and other details in the book it JUST MAKES SENSE! There is nothing in the book of technologies that don't exist today. It is understandable that a career military officer wouldn't publish CLASSIFIED material in a book. That just ads credibility to the book. Some of these posts were right on that fact...

Obviously some people didn't read the book before commenting. We were already looking at some of the technologies before Roswell, we just didn't know where to begin. The book says that Corso went out and found reputable scientists already working on the technologies (Night Vision, Integrated Circuits, Laser, et.) and "helped them along." This makes total sense! Look at how far we have come in just 20 years! Add 10 years to that and you get the time it took for the military to refine it. Corso NEVER said that the "aliens" were sole proprietors of the above technologies. How else could we have advanced so fast in the past 30 years than the previous 100? Like I said, it just makes sense.

Here are some other facts:

1. Astronauts & pilots HAVE said they have seed alien spacecraft
2. He NEVER said that the aliens were lying on the ground for 4 hours, and then ran off...besides he said he wasn't there! This book was written about the alien technologies he researched which we now see in everyday use, especially the military (10 years later)

Very good book!!! Read it and you be the judge!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books in this Genre!
Having read the TOP Four books in the UFO/Alien/ Government Coverup Genre; My FAVORITE is 'Alien Rapture' by Brad Steiger (Great fiction-soon to be a movie); and Alien Agenda by the best selling author of 'Crossfire' Jim Marrs (Best reference on UFOlogy); and Unconventional Flying Objects (NASA UFO Investigator for 30 years) by the scientist Dr. Paul Hill, I'd say Corso's book is a MUST READ!

Why would a respected, decorated, connected Military Officer swear in a Court of Law that the UFO Conspiracy is real and that the facts and agenda in these books ARE TRUE.

Why? If you read this excellent book and the others, you will know that they are indeed true. Two well respected American Astronauts have come forward to proclaim they had seen evidence of the Roswell UFO crash and stated they know the cover-up is real. Was his sudden demise a product of this conspiracy? You be the judge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting read whether it's fiction or non-fiction.
I found this book highly interesting about the controversial Roswell UFO mystery. Add to that the fact that it's written by Lt.Col. (retired) Philip Corso, a military officer with a stellar reputation, for whom this book serves as what seems like a testimonial. He certainly didn't do it out of personal greed for money, he was in his 80s when he decided to write this book. It looks like he's someone who wanted to speak out before he died of old age about something his government, which he served honorably, was keeping from and lying to the public about. Even if you don't believe this story is true, the thoughts presented in this book by Lt.Col. Corso ranks as a highly entertaining science fiction read with the ideas (facts?) in it. It goes into not only the Roswell cover-up, but also how the US military went about dispersing alien hardware to US firms (most of it by Lt.Col. Corso himself), and how alien technology has been and continues to touch our lives today. That part of the book was really weird to think about. Personally, it was a page turner for me, and I finished it within a week.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very thought-provoking read ...
Every day items - the laser pointer in your briefcase, the laptop on your desk, the stealth capability of the F-117's flying over your head ... all may have had a little help from aliens who crashed in Roswell, NM.

This was definitely one of the most interesting Roswell books I've read because it deals not only with the Roswell incident, but what took place in the govement afterwards for a number of years.

3-0 out of 5 stars If This Guy is Lying...
If Corso is lying about the subject matter contained in this book, he should be given some kind of an award. It is, hands-down, the most well conceived fabrication and outright sham I've eer read. I am somewhat of a skeptic and don't believe in much of anything (I believe religion is a practical joke that got out of hand). I have personally witnessed a craft zipping around the sky making right-angle turns at incredible speeds, but don't feel comfortable placing a label on what I saw. I don't know what to make of Corso's book, it's so much fun to read, but I'm not ready to make that leap of faith and admit to the possibility of any of it. Give it a read and make up your own mind. ... Read more

Book Description

The Architects of Stonehenge

They came to Earth thousands of years ago to usher in mankind's first New Age of scientific growth and spiritual enlightenment. Under the guidance of these ancient visitors from the heavens, human civilization flourished -- as revolutionary advances in art, science and thought swept through the inhabited world. And they left behind magnificent monuments -- baffling monoliths and awesome, towering structures that stand to this day as testaments to their greatness.

In this extraordinarily documented, meticulously researched work, Zecharia Sitchin draws remarkable correlations between the events that shape our civilization in millennia past -- pinpointing with astonishing accuracy the tumultuous beginning of time as we know it . . . and revealing to us the indisputable signature of extraterrestrial god indelibly written in stone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Once again Sitchin shows us the obvious road signs
This book, and I've read them all, is terrific! The signs are so obvious, modern archeologists would be well advised to read Sitchin before they take themselves too seriously!

Like ALL of his books, this one too is amazing, compelling, persuasive, enlightening, builds rationally and logically to each of its points BUT (there's alway a "but")is a bit difficult to read. Also, as with ALL his books, Zecharia draws his concise conclusions by bringing the knowledge of many sciences together. It is a must read for anyone with an open mind and thirst for knowledge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely interesting...
Honestly speaking everything about life and it's origin is a theory. Sitchin has written a great book (I have read most of his) and the theory of time and origin of life on earth explained in this book is quiet remarkable and astonishing. If you are one of those who think 'where did we come from', 'was there a begining' or 'is there an end' then I'd recommened this book. However, a lot of maths has been used in this book which requires reading it over again at times. But in short, I love the book, it has made my understanding of origin more broader and I can think in multiple lines!

4-0 out of 5 stars Another good book by sitchin
What can you say about Sitchin, he writes great books.Read this one too, it's great.

1-0 out of 5 stars DOCUMENTATION PLEASE
Do to a misguided recommendation I wasted my money on several of Sitchin's books. At least they're cheap. His entire argument is a house of cards. The appalling thing is that he didn't even bother to provide the source material with which he constructed it. There are no footnotes, endnotes or bibliography. You have to take his word that his translation of a text is accurate or that the text even exists. He does not provide any means of verifying his assertions. There are established ways to document these things. If he wanted to have any intellectual credibility at all, he should at least document his sources.
A lot of people want really badly to believe that aliens are true and that the movie Stargate was for real, but if what you believe is true, then approach the thing with intellectual integrity and let the chips fall where they may. The truth will come out. ... Read more
