Absolute bullshit
Non-Fiction. Yes I do like this sort of thing. There's a tribe in Africa, the Dogon's who can recount the planets and others stars surrounding the star Sirius. The information that they have was not discovered by astronomers until 1920/30's (can't remember exactly). The information the Dogon's have has been passed down from generation to generation. There's more to the book than just this. Good read, again if you like this sort of book.

must read for yourself. skeptical at first glance, but once read into, and with the historical evidence of the Dogon Tribe, it seems plausable.
I was hoping for more and I'm having troubles trusting him.
Sam Hendrick
neat ideas presented here but it goes off subject with toomuch heavy data and what if's.
problem is most people don't understand that a lot of the ancient scriptures were written with the spirit of the word in mind not the litteral tranlation of it.
Here he was looking to hard the connection of the data and not just sticking to the facts. lost a lot of good adat cause of that.
lots and lots of data combined to make lots of heavy reading. Break out your dictionaries and mythology books and anc
Fun ideas. I always enjoy playing "what if?".

As a young and not so 'well-read' 18 year old I found this to be an engrossing intelligent read and for all intents and purposes I did learn some history and it was a great form of entertainment; probably more so now with the extra 100 pages on government coverups. But I don't agree with his ultimate theory of alien contact or even past knowledge of an star system invisible to the naked eye and his research seems to be flawed.

I've been waiting to read this for a long time. I saw the author on H2 "Ancient Aliens" and wrote down the title of his book. His theories on the Dogon alone are so fascinating, I lost my place in history and the universe. He has rewritten history! There are many internets sites devoted to this too!! If you like the H2's "Ancient Aliens" you will flip over this work. IT's been revised, to keep it current with discoveries since it's original publication.

Maybe it's my pea brain but I found this book to be muddled and confusing. Just when Mr. Temple gets on to a great point, he goes off on some tangent and loses my interest. He's a bit of a name dropper and likes to pat himself on the back. That said, it does pose some great questions about the mysterious antiquities of our planet and origins. Do the Dogons hold the key?
George Mills
I had a lot of fun with this book. It's great to suspend disbelief and imagine that there really is a civilization out there. Aside from this, the value of works like this is that they bring out many things for which we have no answer. Academia needs to address itself to the Dogon and not simply wave their mythology off - vacuums have a way of being filled up.
This is a very interesting book. It goes too many details time to time but still it is very intriguing. At the end of the book, Mr. Temple is talking about how a member of the Masons approached him and showed their interest in his research. If there is another Masonic group in the Sirius system, we are really doomed.

Everyone should read this,looks like a typical airy fairy new age book and I was reluctant to dive in, but when I did I realised there are fundamental and obvious scientific facts we don't get told about our existence.
Alot of reseach, text not many pictures. This is a thinking book.
I like that it is updated thru time. Fascinating! Technology is proof to the pudding. Who really knows?
I borrowed this from Doc like 6 years ago and read it but I just found it at a used book store and I'm gonna read it again cause I don't remember if I'm convinced or not.
A great book about the possibility of alien contact in prehistoric human civilizations.
Derek Baldwin
a bit heavy-going at times but a deeply thought-provoking book
Mostly notable in that it is not as bad as Von Danniken.
