Consider the possibility that the history of the human race is not as simple as what has been taught in classroom textbooks. Consider the possibility that the evolutionary scientific explanation for mankind has ignored critical facts that are buried deep within the fossils and mankind's DNA. Consider the possibility that the religious stories that have often been the core ...more

A fascinating read with clear explanations. "Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men" is speculative nonfiction. Fortunately for his credibility, Farrell is up-front about stating he's not out to prove anything. But as with other quasi-scientific musings I've read, if only ten percent of his wild theories prove to be true, the consequences will be world-shaking. A basic premise is that some race or races of highly intelligent beings existed on Earth in very ancient times. Two pieces of evidence he give ...more

Thanks. I needed the laugh.
I reserved this book online, then picked it up at the store. The employee who got the book from behind the counter for me appeared to find it very intriguing -- he kept looking at the cover and commenting on it, then he finally asked me what the book was about. Somewhat flippantly, I told him "oh, you know, ancient aliens, that kind of stuff". Whereupon he instantly became disengaged and couldn't check me out fast enough, LOL.

I'm really sorry I didn't give the clerk a proper answer, though, bec

"Nothing is true, Everything is Permissable." - Hassan I Sabbah

I try to live some of my life by that quote, though I do try to hold some truths evident, primarily the ones about myself and who I am, for if we do not have ourselves, what definite thing do we truly have in this world?

Enough philosophy, let's get to the book review!

Now the aforementioned quote above does hold some relevance to what exactly is said within this book by Joseph P. Farrell. The man himself is quite the avid and interest
I recently received this book as a contest prize from GoodReads.

Being a reasoning and thoughtful person, I have always believed that there is a more scientific reason to life on Earth than what is written in the Bible. The stories seem overly simplistic and at times outrageous. But, that is to be expected from people of that time period.

The author lays out a reasonable and logical theory based upon his previous books and studies made by other researchers. If the information is accurate, it could

This book is definitely a unique read! I wasn't sure what to expect when starting it, but the content kept me interested. I had a very hard time putting the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone! :)

While I usually find the haughty pretentiousness of scientific editors to stand in the way of progress, this book has made me reconsider the utility of scientific standards. For instance, when making a scientific claim it is not reasonable to cite wikipedia ad nauseum, nor is it reasonable to compile a book that is 75% citations from other crazies writing conspiracy theories from their mother's basements. Joseph Farrell is one of those guys with a phD that fell through the cracks of academia, wh ...more
Mar 12, 2013 Jordan rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
To say this is an out-there read is an understatement. It’s an interesting idea – that humanity was bio-engineered by entities that we called gods. But like all good conspiracy theories (and according to the author, there is a conspiracy, that keeps evidence of this genetic history hidden. Oh those nefarious archaeologists), the evidence is scant, the leaps of faith long. The theory relies too much on the spurious “Megalithic Yard” theory and archaeological discoveries that rarely go beyond 19th ...more

Farrell says there may be space aliens as much as a billion years old who are involved, and that they may be on their way back. He's hiding out in Spearfish I guess, waving a finger in the air, hey baby, come on down. Maybe I got a question or two, since you been gone a hundred million years and NOW you comin' back, whataya need? Incomplete, need some seed, need to fulfill that smokin DNA? Well, here's the big sec, it's not the man, they want the girl. So be jealous man! They wan

I had to read this book in several parts. For me the information presented requires consolidation. It is a profound undertaking. The idea that our units of measurement are interconnected over ancient history and astronomically are shocking. While our early human history still has to be explained, the least we can do is identify the problems and gaps in our knowledge. This for me has been a failing of "dogmatic" academic anthropology, perhaps instigated by the Smithsonian. Farrell for me succeede ...more
This book sounded really good, and the ideas are fascinating, but I couldn't finish it. I got to page 42. It's not anything wrong with the book, really. It's just that there is too much detail and scientific explanation. Which is great if your brain can process all that. Science has never been my strong suit and I zone out a little during those segments. That doesn't bode well when the whole book is scientific detail. The part I read sounded fascinating, and I'm sure that this would be a great r ...more

This was a tough read. Lots of scientific mumbo jumbo. But it was an interesting concept and it was obvious that the author took the time to research information to back his thesis.

Got this book actually for my husband who likes mythical stories, sci fi and philosophy. It delivers all those things. He is enjoying it!
