Archaeologist Jonathan Gray stumbled upon something that shocked him!...a whole cache of "out of place" items that should not exist. And they weren't just in one place. There was a global pattern to them. This pattern showed a lost science and technology. That's when he knew someone had to speak up. This content was of tremendous value.

This book, if nothing else, will get you thinking. It covers ancient, archaeological discoveries that proposes that maybe our antediluvian past was an advanced technological society much like our own, or better, that was eventually wiped out during the Great Flood. He lists some extraordinary information that I believe most of the public may not be aware of.

Although it does come from a Christian viewpoint, I believe the author was not a Christian when he started out researching for this book. My

This book reads like some old role-playing books I used to enjoy. There was inevitably some section given over to describing the history of the fictional Earth; that section invariably consisted of a long list of dry facts that you quickly decided just to skim. The second half of Gray's book reads like that, but with less coherence or narrative and only slightly more references.

In fact, the role-playing analogy can be taken further. Go dig out some old Rifts books: many of them spell out an alte

Great book for the widening of thinking and worldview.

I loved what it was trying to say, I felt it could have been written with more cohesion, and a lot less disembodied "lists" - more information and more detail on a few less facts would have given the book a lot more depth.

A book for the adventurous.

It's more like a history text book that a non-history student will love it. Very simple and well researched book. I don't know how much of topics covered in this book are true but even if 10% of it is authentic than we have very interesting ppl as our ancestors.

It's written like a long list of facts, but it has some pretty interesting stuff. A lot of what he says makes some sense and then some things seem too far-fetched. But still very thought- provoking.

History like you've never imagined. Are we really smarter than our ancestors? The pre-flood world and shortly after holds more mysteries and more discoveries than even I imagined!

So much evidence all around us, but one rarely dares to voice one's thoughts. I am happy some do.

What a poor book. How can someone turn an interesting subject into something so boring?

It's either some kind of awful panel pretending to discuss issues, or 90% of the time just a long list.

I couldn't find any evidence of a lot of the interesting subjects, as this book had a severe lack of any evidence.

If you want to read about a lost civilization then read graham hancock and not this book.

“A point to remember. As any technology advances, its methods and equipment do not become more complex; they become simplified. (Take, for example, printed circuits, silicon chips.) Such equipment may not be recognizable to a civilization of inferior knowledge. The point is we may be looking at objects—quite exciting objects—without recognizing them. Who would have expected that items in Baghdad Museum, long labelled as “ritual objects,” would prove to be components of batteries? Do you see what I mean?” 0 likes
